I decided to complete Clauss' sbc because of my team that mostly has French players (as you can see in my squad below).
Many of you will ask before completing his sbc: "Is he better than Hakimi?" The answer is: yes.
His pace is a little bit weaker, but don't worry, applying an Anchor chemstyle will help boosting his pace.
So, let's head into the review.
I had no problems with his pace at all and it's not a surprise. He can outrun every winger, and that's the main thing that comes to my mind when I want to replace one of my fullbacks. So don't worry, he will be as fast as like Mbappé. He has no problems with accelerating and sprinting as well.
I haven't shot with him yet, but I don't think it will happen in the future either, as I use him as RB.
Quite consistent passing, I must say. In this game the passing is so much important than last year, so many of you will have a look at his passing stats. I had no problems with his passing at all - sometimes, his long passes were quite long, but other than that his passing is decent.
He has 95 agility which is a very good stat for him. His dribbling is so so good. Even though he has 3* skills, you can dribble him as much as you can, he's very fast on the ball.
Applying an Anchor chemstyle for him will boost his defending stats, which is very important for him as his default defending stats are 80 rated. But ignoring that, his defending is very good. As I mentioned, he can outrun every winger and can get the ball from them easily. Standings tackles are so op for him, he can tackle everyone in the box as well.
His stamina is 99... I don't think I have to say anything on that. He won't get tired after 90 minutes. I guarantee you. As for the physical abilities, he's not the strongest and the most aggressive player on the wings, but I don't think he needs to be. With anchor, his strength is 85 and his aggression is 83. I think these are very good stats for a fullback. He won't have problems thaking the ball from the opponent, as I mentioned a few times already.
All in all, I can only say that if you don't have a better fullback and you have the opportunity and a Ligue 1/French team, complete him as soon as you can. He's gonna be upgraded for sure in the future, and he's a quality fullback to have in your team.
- Pace (he's fast)
- Very good dribbler
- Long passes (sometimes)
- 3* weak foot
- 3* skill moves
I have been using his 84 card for over a month and I can honestly say that is has been the best RB I've ever used. I've tried all good RB cards from top 5 leagues (except last cards, but anyway) and Clauss somehow the best of them. His stats don't seem very good (he isn't the fastest RB. he isn't the tallest RB. he isn't the best at defending), but he is a beast, trust me. So, when I saw this SBC incoming, I was ready to spend all my money for him because I'm sure that it's an endgame card. (When I saw his price I was a little bit scared because I've thought that everyone will complete this beast). Use this card with anchor chemstyle (the only one and excellent option).
He is very quick and can catch everyone (with anchor his pace is 98).
The most important thing for RB/LB about dribbling is agility and he has 95 agility. Balance is not so good, but I haven't felt it in game. He can also do some runs and his ball control feels good.
I use him with "stay back" instruction and his defending is great. Interceptions, tackles are always successful.
99 stamina, come on. If you want to hear something about him strength, it feels much better than 75. He can push wingers really well.
- His heading
He easily wins air battles with wingers who has the same height as him, but loses all with tall players. In game you won't feel it very much because RB players don't really have to be tall.
Noticed a guy gave him a 2.5/5, don't listen to him. Clauss is incredible at everything, including defending. I had an anchor chem style on him and played him on 7 chem. He's truly the best RB I've used and gone up against this year. Usually RBs don't change games, but this guy does. He makes the interception, and makes great forward runs.
Feels incredible on the ball
Can kinda shoot
3 Star Skills
hes very agile and his def awareness seems way higher than 78. He was a very good addition to my team and the price of 100k was way too low. I read some reviews about him and saw some guys hate him and say he is bad but thats not true he is insane for me at least. If u have this card u should give it try or another try.
-almost never out of position
for me it seems sometimes his strength
Got this guy to link Kimpembe and Aouar together as a replacement for Hakimi, Hakimi is truly one of the greatest Right Backs in this game but I now have found a card that can replace him! He is such a good card to get not only for value, but that he can get upgraded and also is French, he is for certain the best French Right Back in the game. He is amazing defensively and is as fast as all the fastest attackers this year, Mbappe and Vinicius struggle against this guy.
- Some of the best pace I’ve seen in this FIFA, easily catches up to the fastest attackers like Mbappe and Vinicius
- Amazing at tracking runs from attackers with his intelligent AI for defending
- Good Tackling and Physicality
- Feels good on the Ball
- 3 Star Weak Foot
- 3 Star Skill Moves
- Not good at shooting
