88 - Headliners
5.0
Acuna Matata
By treetrunk24, 01-01-2022

He's back. Acuna is well and truly back, most people will remember him for his dominance in the final few months of fifa 21 but he made a few appearances in earlier titles too, this headliners version is advertised as a left back but trust me you will want to play him CDM/CM in game, I used him in a 442 alongside gravenberch with him on stay back and cover centre to do the dirty work in the midfield, i came into this expecting him to be good, but my word not this good,


Pace: 9.5/10 He was rapid with a shadow chemistry style, he could catch up to quick attackers in a blitz so he is near perfect in this regard.


Shooting: 6/10 I found his shooting quite lack-luster and he missed a few chances here and there in front of goal but since i had him on stay back this wasn't a massive problem for me.


Passing: 9/10 I expected his passing to be perfect but he did miss a few easy passes here and there but nobody is perfect as he totally made up for this by many exquisite through balls played through to George Best (Who might be the best player i have ever used).


Dribbling: 10/10 His dribbling is just the stuff of dreams, he feels so silky and smooth on the ball, he weaves through players like a needle. Paired with the fact he is 5'8 it is just perfect!


Defending: 9.8/10 His interceptions are crazy, its like he has a third leg, comparable to kante, you don't expect him to make an interception but out of nowhere he makes some inhuman stretch to make sure he wins the ball. His tackling is also amazing, the opposition think they are through and then they see acuna, hardly ever misses a tackle.


Physicality: 9/10 I was blown away by how strong he feels considering he is only 5'8, can give players like Lukaku a run for their money, 95 stamina means he can run all day long too. He's like a wasp.

Cheap supersub

I've been using his normal card as a sub in my Serie A + Bundesliga and Serie A + PSG squads and he was good. I played him as both CM and CDM. This IF is even better (Obviously). He is cheap because he is not "quick enough" for a starting LB but he is really good in the midfield, specially as a sub. You can use him as a defensive CDM or as an all-rounder CM small and agile similar to Barella (Who I sub him for). If you have...

Picking up right where he left off

It seems pretty much everyone had this dude at the end of last year, as he had near perfect stats and was probably the best CDM in the game. The start of this year is not very different though, as Acuña looks to be one of the more complete players in the game. Coming at a measly 3k, he boasts more in game stats than De Jong or Valverde who are both 30k plus. With this in mind, I bought...

It's settled, this is the GOAT

First of, this is my first review this FIFA, I've done a lot in the other fifas, but I've not had the opportunity to spend that much time on this fifa. I've nearly been playing before christmas. That being said, I've been quite actively checking every new player out at Futbin etc. Review start: Acuna might actually be the best LB option out there, in the game. I reckon he is fairly cheap. I picked him up fa...
