90 - Headliners
5.0
Cracked (like in real life)
By iamdavidstamm, 02-01-2022

So,I'm a massive Porto-Fan and this guy has to be one of the best players I've seen around here (and I've seen Deco, Falcao, Hulk, Pepe, James, Moutinho, etc.). It's not going to be a biased review, but he's in my team for sentimental value. Turns out, he's much more than that. I loved his 83-Card, since he was lightning quick, very good on the ball and literally perfect as a winger. I had a lot of wingers (Vinícius Jr., Son, Ljungberg, Sané, etc.), but he was my favourite. It's the way he moves without the ball and how he can stop the ball after sprinting like hell. His long shots are cracked and his finishing (even with an "Engine"-Chemistry Style on) is brutal. The only bad thing, for me, is that he hasn't got 5 star skill moves (undeserved, he's an absolute baller on the ball).

  • Pace
  • Shooting (Finishing and Long Shots)
  • Dribbling (Very agile, since he has the lean body type)
  • Off the ball movement
  • Very aggressive
  • Stamina
  • Not having 5 star skill moves
  • Will leave Porto and I will cry

The Monster that is Diaz
By spikedmartini, 25-04-2022

Luis Diaz Headliner (89)

Chem Style Used: Engine


Bit of a surprise card really. I was casually strolling through futbin.com’s “Popular Player” section when I stumbled across the card. At the time of the promo, he was still a Porto player so I took absolutely no notice of the card but suddenly it became a Must Have for my All-Liverpool XI 


Bought at 245k with possible upgrades in the future it seemed a no-brainer. So, it was.

Currently on 335 Rivals/FutChamps games and sitting on 247 Goals with 178 assists he has proven to be a monster at times. Playing primarily as a LW with cameo appearances at CAM, he has consistently been a threat in front of goal and has been surprisingly effective as an out-ball when stationed out-wide.


This is a card I would recommend to anyone that asks. Personally, have not played with a LW this FIFA that gets close to his output and with potential upgrades still a possibility he is a card I could see in my team until TOTS is released. He will create chaos if used to run in behind the line and he will score goals. I compare him regularly to the Mahrez Headliner card from FIFA 21, but Diaz is a monster in his own right. 


STAND OUT FEATURES

At time of writing his pace is sitting at 96 that translates very well into the game when combined with his Insane Dribbling and Aggression. Only 78 Aggression and 77 Strength seems a bit low for the number of balls he was able to retrieve from contact situations. He is one of those “sticky” players where the ball repeatedly falls back to him from tackles and ricochets. He was always a pressing machine and dispossessed multiple Defenders. Diaz has been impressive for Liverpool FC so far and his quick feet and sharp movement in-game will cause chaos similar to his performances in real life.

PASSING

Being very anal about it but often will misplace an easy pass and struggles with Long Passing.


FINISHING

I thought long about this one as the card has on several occasions bagged 5 goals in a game leading to several rage quits but FINISHING is one instance where I feel he might let you down on the rare occasion.

Base 88 FINISHING seemed a fair rating with a couple of sitters missed that left me confused.

Nice winger to use
By simonteroddeGOAT, 08-01-2022

I played with him 66 games so far and I decided to review him, because he is very underrated. He has very good workrates to work with and his bodytype is perfect for on the wing. He brings good physical with him and he has a very good shot for a winger. You could link him perfect with the 86 Uribe-card and it's a nice duo to use. Luis Diaz his dribbling is also very good, the only thing that's a bit annoying is the balance statt.


I used him in the following formations: 4231/4321/4222


  • Pace
  • Shooting
  • Dribbling overal
  • Balance is not that good
  • Passing could be better
