Bayern Munich Midfielder Is One Of The Hidden Gems On FIFA 19

Each year on FIFA we have several hidden gems come along on Ultimate Team and one that is already going to do absolute bits on this year's game is Bayern Munich's Leon Goretzka.

The 23-year old midfielder joined the dominant Bundesliga champions on a free transfer from Schalke this summer and notched a goal and assist in his first league start against VFB Stuttgart.

And after his FUT card started doing the rounds, he looks like a must-have player when FIFA comes out at the end of the month.

Goretzka was rated 82 at the start of FIFA 18, with 84 pace, 80 dribbling, 73 pace and 79 pace. But his form throughout the season led to various in-forms and upgrades, as well as a big improvement on FIFA 19.

He's only gone up to achieve an overall rating of 83 but his stats are actually ridiculous. 87 pace for a central midfielder is complete and utter filth, while stats 81 passing and dribbling, 76 shooting and 78 defending complete a very fine card.

To top it off, it also looks like to have four-star skills and four-star weak foot.

FIFA enthusiasts over on Reddit are already calling the card "illegal" and predicting him to go for some serious cash on the market. With what he brings to the table, you're talking some serious big bucks and so you could be onto a winner if you pack him.

Another man who promises to be deadly on FIFA 19 is Real Madrid's Marcelo. The Brazilian is widely recognised as the best left-back in the world and his 88-rated card is so good he could probably play any position on the pitch with relative ease.

Just look at those stats. 90 dribbling, 83 passing, 82 pace and 81 dribbling. Plus, according to a leak, Marcelo has been listed as a potential five-star skiller in FIFA 19 which would just be the icing on the cake.
