First thing first, Van Basten is the most goalgetting player I've tried this year, positioning, shooting, agility all on point. I'm a Div 1 player and he will still destroy the opponent. The amout of headers he scores is fenomenol. But the best thing about him is the nonsprinting movement. He will get a clear shot in no time, and dose'nt care if its Varane or any other defender he faces. I play him in 4-1-2-1-2(2) with stay central, boxplayer paired with IF Vini who is on get in behind. His pasing is not great for crucial passes, but for playing it back to the midfield to create play it's enough. His pace is not great but when he gets clear and comes in front of the defence, they will not manege to stop him. Don't think he will blast trough the defence every time, he does some times, but against defensive playstyle he will destroy, because of the movement on and off the ball inside the box. Overall he has that little extra, that will get you the goal and I think he's a meta meta player and very good value for money even though you miss the 4* skill moves, but if you learn not only to use that, Van Basten will be a beast for you.
The amount of thougballs he converts to goals
Pace, not that slow with an engine
