Review Carrasco
By DeBanaan, 07-01-2022

I was done playing Leroy Sane 91 playing on LM, so I refreshed my whole team. Bought Acuna, Pau Torres and him to link him up with Kondogbia. I played around 30 games with Carrasco and I want to say that he is good but not wow. He does not feel clunky as his TOTW did. His shooting was an pain in the @ss the most easy tap-ins were missed by him, but sometimes he made good finesse-shots. That was also because all the keepers feel very bad, what a trash week of gameplay was this. Sometimes, Carrasco ran forward with no reason, even I put him on a stay back, because I am a very slow build-up player, enfin. Carrasco did sometimes glitch with his running because he runs with wide arms. His physicality was notthat bad but what that stat gave him. His passing is also not that special, no Riquelme passes :) I do not have much to say anymore because this card is not that special, just buy him if you like him. Or if your Belgian, Atletico-fan. Do not buy him if you are a rat, then you will be kinda disappointed. I used him because I am Atletico-fan.

  • Pace
  • dribbling (if you like to dribble with players with height)
  • Headliner, so upgradeable
  • Everything else, its not bad, but not great

Not-so-headlining Carrasco
By Blizzu, 02-01-2022

This might be the worst card I've tested in this year's game. Many may disagree with me, but there is something very off about this card. The worst thing about him is his dribbling. For a card with his stats he should be storming past his opponents like cones. Instead, his dribbling feels very clumsy and sluggish for some reason. Comparing to likes of Alessandrini's Winter Wildcard or even Embarba's one, he is in other league - and that's not in the positive way. Secondly, I've slapped a finisher on him to boost his shooting. The most surprising thing to me was his finishing, which was almost non-existent. He was missing very easy situations and left me pretty disappointed in a few occasions. Pace-wise he felt decent, exactly like I imagined. He was breezing past slower defenders but struggled against the likes of Hakimi. His passing was like a lottery, he made some very good passes but also butchered some easy looking ones, but in his defence I must admit it's a thing with almost every player in this FIFA, the passes feel very inconsistent.

Overall, this card is not a total waste of money - let's remember that he can still upgrade. But at the current state he feels almost unplayable and he missed my expectations.
