Budget Gem of Serie A
By Varija, 01-10-2021

With every annual instalment of FIFA, the Serie A has always been an early go to for affordable great cards. FIFA 22 is no different. Through the abundance of packs that have been opened, coupled with a downgrade, Mertens has gone from 90k in FIFA 21 to a ridiculous 4k in FIFA 22. Despite the price discrepancy between the two cards, they're virtually identical in stats as well impact in-game.


Playing as the Middle CAM in a 4-2-3-1, Mertens as expected is very silky on the ball, even despite the overall clunkiness of FIFA 22. With the combination of his high agility, balance and dribbling, Mertens has the ability to squirm pass defenders and get himself in an optimal position to score. In terms of pace, he might not have the best top speed, but with a hunter, he's still very capable of beating defenders when making a run for goal. The passing was also surprisingly decent on the card, having the ability to lay the ball off to supporting attackers. The stand out attribute of the card however is his shooting. With how outrageous the goalkeepers seem to be in this game, Mertens still manages to bang in a slew of goals, and in numerous ways too. Either with power or the OP outside the box finesse shot, Mertens doesn't fail to score in any game he plays. The card however isn't perfect, having one major flaw. Physicality. Mertens as expected isn't one to out muscle defenders, but he makes up for this with his balance and agility. The one true concern lies in the card's stamina. In the latter minutes of the match, you can feel the card's performance significantly dip. Regardless, the upsides of the card outweigh this one issue. Overall Mertens has been a wonderful player to use and I recommend him to anyone yet to use him.

Downgrade from FIFA21 but just as good...
By DanMatthewsAV, 28-09-2021

Despite some big exits from Serie A this summer (CR7 and Lukaku), I have always been drawn towards building a Serie A based FUT squad. After opening some relatively decent 'Welcome Back' packs, I found myself with enough to build the squad linked. 5-2-1-2 suits my play style to a tee, and with Mertens at CAM it's a game changer from my 5-3-2 formation on FIFA21.


With lovely dribbling, decent passing and very good finishing (even with goalkeepers being broken so far), Mertens has been a fantastic CAM for this early stage of FIFA. His positioning has allowed him to break the lines and get in to the box late to get some impressive goals, his agility and balance allows him to spin away from his markers quickly and move forwards up the pitch.


Obviously with him, he isn't a physical player but if you want a CAM/CF who can drop between that position of ST and CM, and with soft links to the likes of Lukaku, KDB and Hazard, thoroughly impressed.
