He just EATS people alive
By JonasRode, 15-11-2021

This man is the GOAT in my defense. I was lucky enough to pack him in my prime gaming pack and have played 96 games with him by now. First I was a bit concerned about his pace (sad enough), when opponents using meta CB's with 85 pace all time. But now I'm just overwhelmed how good VVD is. He is a very aggressive CB, who puts lots of pressure on strikers getting the ball from a midfielder. But these tacklings are just great because he literally eats strikers and let them no chance to even turn around.

In some cases his lack of acceleration is a little bit of a downside but there are very few situations, in which he can not make this up by his great defending and positioning.

Otherwise I haven't found any other weaknesses in VVD's playstyle so obviously I recommend buying this machine. Even for 114k (by now).he has a great value.

  • aggression
  • heading
  • positioning
  • just being every strikers nightmare
  • acceleration
  • probably his stamina which isn't a huge problem because he's a CB

88 Sprint speed is a saviour

Virgil Van Dijk. A card I was lucky enough to pack in my untradeable 50k pack from the bronze and silver objectives, which I recommend you complete. although 66 acceleration is not ideal, once he gets going he can pretty much catch up to anyone with his 88 sprint speed. his passing is second to none. switches and lb+y with big Virgil is a cheat code. his weak foot isn't too bad but I wouldn't rely on it all the time. as lon...
