87 - SBC
5.0
You GIOst have to shoot
By pepperoniplayboy, 09-11-2021

I'm going to be completely honest, normally I would've never done this SBC, but after getting two duplicate untradeable bruno fernandes from the 78+ picks I decided to slot them into both of Gio's squads since it would allow me to complete him for next to nothing.

So back to the card, I didn't know what to expect from him but I was getting tired of Iñaki Williams after 200+ games. He slot in perfect as a lone striker in a 4231 (get in behind and stay central)

So far I've played 10 games in Division 1 Rivals, he's scored 26 goals with 7 assists. Honestly just bonkers, I went from rank 3 to rank 1 in the span of 10 games after struggling for a week.

I consider myself above average but not great and this card is what I was missing, a clinical finisher who just buries it from any angle. His shots inside the box go in 90% of the time, and on the edge of the box he just rifles them top bins.

His 3 star weakfoot is fake, feels 5 star to me, as far as skill moves I don't really implement them into my game so I couldn't tell you, but dribbling with the left stick is immaculate.

On corners he's scored 3 or 4 headers that he honestly shouldn't get to at 5'11, but I guess that power header trait and 99 heading accuracy does a lot for him.

He's not the strongest but he doesn't go down easily if he's gone on a counter or in space, nobody's catching him (I use the Hunter Chem style)

I almost forgot, his 88 short pass comes very much in handy with 1-2's with my CAM (EL Fekir). He very rarely miss places a pass, I didn't really utilize his long passing.

At 40k I would definitely complete him given that even if you have just a little fodder he's easily done and doesn't require any informs.


-Price is decent

-Shooting 10/10

-Fake 3 star weakfoot, feels like 5 star

-Left stick dribbling is great

-Heading is very good, could be better if he was a bit taller though

-Short passing is amazing

-Decent links with Argentina and Serie A

None, well maybe his Stamina which isn't the best after the 65th/70th minute

30K - 40k Steal for a ST

My first ever Review on Futbin so I apologise if this review comes out as a littlle bad. Giovanni Simeone. Wow. Just wow. At first i was unsure of getting him because of the league he plays in but i was really getting desperate to get rid of Ripart (played him in RB) and Ben Yedder was a bit awful for me so i decided to check him out. His stats blew me away, I mean 99 jumping he will never lo...

Diego's son is quality

So I did his SBC the second it came out to try him all i can say is that he is godly unstoppable even tho he had 3* weak foot it felt insane thats how crazy it was I've never had this much fun demolishing players on fifa since the rule breakers Arnautobeast came out he was insane I compared both of them and played with both of them up top. Arna is a beast, so i went ahead and compared them on 1 on 1 situations with the with...

Upgrade from POTM worth it

Overall a good card! If you used his POTM you know that with a hunter he has very good pace and shooting and even though he is 5'11' (181 cm) he has 99 jumping and 99 heading accuracy so he does win some headers from crosses. For under 40k, definitely worth the upgrade from POTM, and if you need a Serie A striker he is a great option. In my opinion bet...
