A new week means another juicy FIFA 19 Totw article from yours truly!


PSG’s little Argentine maestro is probably this weeks standout card (Along with Gimenez) for those of us looking at who to buy from the list of this weeks selection. Di Maria got a rare start for PSG last weekend and repaid the faith shown in him with a goal and a goal making play, as Paris Saint Germain came out 4-1 winners in the Ligue 1 fixture. With an 87 rated card and 5* skill moves, the left winger’s card is very finely balanced with almost every in-game attribute being above 80 (except defending). The overall rating for each key stat is as follows 88 pace, 88 dribbling, 81 shooting, 86 passing, 72 physical. Pointing out a weak spot of the card would be a modest 76 finishing and 65 strength, the 2* weak foot could also be a deal breaker for some. In my opinion, it’s still a good card and has nice links to the likes of Messi, Aguero, and Higuain.

Atletico Madrid’s Uruguayan center back was a rock at the heart of the backline and led by example when his international compatriot Diego Godin went off injured. Atletico Madrid kept a clean sheet and beat Getafe 2-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano last Saturday. Gimenez’s fine performance has been rewarded with an 86 rated card and some very nice looking stats for a defender. With a rating of 70 pace, 87 defending and 86 physicality. Gimenez offers a strong, and aggressive approach whilst being incredibly acrobatic with his 94 jumping stat, it should make the center back a desirable choice for La Liga teams.

The French forward had a scintilating game for Real Madrid last weekend, scoring a brace and proving to be a menace for the Espanoyl defence as Los Blancos came out 4-2 victors. Benezema of late is arguably in his best form for many years and is starting to shine in CR7’s absence. For me, I have no idea how Benzema’s inform card is rated 86 when he actually only has 2 in-game stats over 86! (Vision & Ball control) the card doesn’t look great if I’m honest with ratings of 78 pace, 82 shooting, 79 passing, 83 dribbling and 77 physicality. Unless you’re a fan of the player specifically, I think the card will be SBC fodder as there’s much better value for the coins out on the market. (Ben Yedder)
