Rodrygo or the 'Other Brazilian winger from Real Madrid' is without a doubt one of the best attackers in La Liga, im playing him as a complete forward to play balls to Rashford and oh my word! Hes so good at passing, one of the best in the game from what ive used. He feels smooth on the ball, ive had some issues with his long shots but he still scored a screamer. Really good at passing aswell im not sure what it is its just so good. Been a standout player, cant wait for him to go to an 86 or even an 87 hes going to be a baller! Good investment aswell.
Positioning (He gets into some good positions at times)
Positioning (He can also be pretty poor at times but most of the time its good)
I used him at right striker in 41212(2), stay forward and stay central, All games played in div 1, fut champs finals and elite division, Also full chem.
He is lethal up top, finishing is really consistent with this card. Very smooth silky dribbling, stock in game + height makes him very agile.
Passing was pretty good, nothing special though.
Pace was great and his attacking AI was great, always making really piercing runs, easy to send through balls to him.
Not strong but doesn't get bullied. Finishing with weak foot was also very consistent.
I'd recommend him up top, really nice card.
Doesn't have 5 star 5 star like dembele, so there is a preference there
Starts to fade when tired, not as effective, drop off in performance very noticeable, would recommend solid sub for him
After I finished my weekend league, I decided to cash out on my main team, and build a team around the various untradable cards I had in my club: (Varane, Alaba, Dembele, Fekir, Politano, Llorente), when building a team around my untradables I was looking for a solid defensive CM/CDM, LB, RB & ST. And then I figured well rttf cards aren't in packs, and Rodrygo is en route to get upgraded to 86/87, so (A.) his price shouldn't crash as hard as other players and (B.) He is likely gonna rise following some upgrades, so I thought good investment, and a safe card to place coins into, and then he just seems like a meta striker, and my god he is.
In my first Div 1 game he scores a hattrick, in my second game he scores another hattrick. His finishing is so clean, especially when you are shooting from just outside or inside the box. To put into perspective I have used Baby Icon Nedved, Mid Raul, Baby Suker, Mid Figo, Rttf Reus, whom have all been solid for me especially Nedved, but Rodrygo trumps them all imo, yes he may not have that icon finishing boost that you feel when using Icons, but man does his speed and left stick dribbling make him so much more enjoyable to use.
On a closing note I feel he works best in a 2 striker formation, as he will have someone to do 1-2 passes with and then run in behind, he didn't really work for me in 4-2-3-1 as the main striker in the one game I tried with him there. So yeah if you are going to use him, use him alongside striker partner that is a good finisher, in my case it was rttf fekir.
Passing (Great at through balls, and tight passes)
Finishing Inside and Outside the box
Dribbling (Especially Left Stick Dribbling)
Pace (He is monstrously Rapid)
Positioning (He makes some perfect runs in between defenders)
Power shots (Scores alot of across keeper shots)
Weak Foot (Feels like a 5 star wf)
Physical (He sometimes can be pushed off the ball a bit to easy, but makes up with it with his dribbling)
Heading (I find myself a lot on the counter where Either fekir or Dembele, draw a defender and Rodrygo is free in the box for a header, and completely misses the goal or heads into the keeper)
Hello all out there!
This is my first review, but I felt like doing it, because even though the stats might not be one of an outstanding player (in terms of goals/ assists) this player does make his presence felt on the pitch.
I bought him around Black Friday with the intention of selling him when his price would go up. After a few days, his rating was up, so I decided to try him a bit in some games. First 3 games were not showing an outstanding player, but I kept him in. Then, he just blew my mind in some games and it remained in the team although I could've made around 80 k profit.
I am not dribbler kind of player so I am not to good with skills and dribbling, but with this player, I was able to do it even better than with Vini Jr (POTM). Finishing was also good with both feet and that pace... man it is outrageous. He never left the team again, and overall I am very pleased with his performance.
Nowadays, at the price that he is selling at, I would really recommend him.
I play him in a 3-4-3 squad with an Artist chem style
Pace: This is speed bro
Dribbling: Even a player that does not dribble allot can do the job with Rodrygo
Shooting: If you get in finishing position, he will definitely hit the target
Passing: the receiver will appreciate his passes :)
Defending: he is not a defender, but if you set "Come Back on Defense" will will do some rebounds as well
Physicality: he is not strong, but very quick and with very good stamina
Not a strong player, but with his speed and skills you won't feel it
Before you downvote please here me out first. There are definitely positives to this card but Rodrygo is unfortunately the most underwhelming card ive used this fifa. I packed him untradeable and thought to wait till the upgrade before making this review and have come to the conclusion that he just isnt worth 300k. Vinicius is twice the card and his 85 and 83 are cheaper. Also used neres and antony who were both amazing for me and would recommend over Rodrygo. This is what i thought about the card so u can decide whether hes worth it for yourself
Pace - he feels very fast espicially after the upgrade and acceleration is top tier
Passing - solid nothing crazy does the job
Dribbling - agility felt nice and skill moves come of nicely
Stamina - Perfect
Links - brazil + real madrid is super useful
Dribbling and strength - now these two toghether are one of the main issues with this card. Unlike insigne or other low strength cards, Rodryrgo ALWAYS had dribbling issues because of his strength. Any defender in a ten mile radius of Rodrygo would send rodrygo straight into a face plant to his high dribbling stats only felt good in certain situations. Not gonna lie really annoyed me espicially because i havent really had this problem with any other card similar to his
Shooting - sometimes maybe good sometimes maybe shit. Again its the card because ive used neymar who has low shot power yet he feels like he has insane finishing. Good accuracy on tight angles but those simple straight on angles are just always being saved.
Workrates - has to be said. attack positioning is good but of course it is affected by medium/medium
Price - 300k is super overpriced. If you need him for chem or are a Real Madrid fan then fair enough i guess but i wouldn't pay more than 120k for this card based on how much 83 vini is.
