Virgil Van Dijk Vs Nemanja Vidic: The 29 FIFA Stats That Could Decide Who Is The Better Player

Virgil Van Dijk Vs Nemanja Vidic: The 29 FIFA Stats That Could Decide Who Is The Better Player

Nemanja Vidic and Virgil van Dijk have been put into a head-to-head FIFA stat comparison battle to determine who holds the better overall attributes.

And now SPORTbible has decided to settle that debate by using Futhead to do a side-by-side comparison of Van Dijk and Vidic's in-game stats.

With Vidic not featuring as an icon in FIFA 20, the 38-year-old Serbian's 89-rated FIFA 12 base card has been used instead.

Van Dijk, who was one of the cover stars for FIFA 20, has a 90-rated Ultimate Team base card in the latest entry in EA Sports' popular series.

Each player is awarded one point if they win a certain stat category, while a tie awards each footballer a 0.5 score.

Posted below is a head-to-head comparison of Vidic and Van Dijk's stats in FIFA.
