If FIFA 22 were FIFA 21 then this guy would have probably been worth it because of his pace. But he is so overrated and his price makes him even more laughably overrated. Takes ages to turn if he gets dribbled past and his low defensive awareness is a huge concern. Hummels and Pique play better because of their high defensive awareness which is very essential in FIFA 22 instead of just pace meta rat-ing. Upamecano's low acceleration also one of the hugest turn-offs. A defender must be in the right place at the right time which he lacks. His overall pace, even after giving him SHADOW, is deceptive. Laporte can catch up with some fast players because of his defensive positioning and proper placement, but Upamecano always seems to be on a picnic. If you are one of those who likes to defend aggressively and do manual defending all the time then avoid him. His faux pace along with his low defensive awareness, bad dribbling, and low stamina is a pain. Also need to mention that if you want to start a counter attack with him, you would be disappointed because the man is technically blind with his 58 vision that he can't even pass the ball to the CDM near him properly. Tapsoba is a lot better with 1/350 of the price. Get him instead of this man on a holiday.
- Low tamina
- Deceptive pace (it's not what it is on paper)
- Low defensive awareness
