FIFA 20 has only been out for a little over a week now. But already, I’ve poured more hours into Pro Clubs and Ultimate Team than a 27-year-old would want to admit.
As it stands currently, my FUT squad is rather unremarkable. Having gotten lucky by packing an untradeable Clément Lenglet card upon release, my team features mostly mediocre to slightly-above-average cards such as 83-rated Alvaro Morata, 79-rated Vinicius Jr., and 83-rated Pablo Sarabia among others.
But on the bench, I have a very special card that is a true beast off the bench late in games — and that would be Alexandru Mitrita!
New York City FC’s DP winger only has a 75-rated base card, the lowest rating a gold player can have in FIFA. But his 81-rated in-form — earned with his first-half hat trick against Atlanta United last week — is a way better option than it would appear to be.
Despite only having three-star skill moves, Mitrita has an extremely useful 5-star weak foot making him a true threat in the box with either foot. The Romanian also has 90 pace — which is way overpowered at the time being — and despite having only 71 composure, Mitri is always a threat off the bench against an exhausted defense.
Obviously, with Mitri being both Romanian and an MLS player, it will be hard to squeeze into any kind of formidable Starting XI. But if you have 10k in coins you’re willing to part with, he’s absolutely worth the investment as a late-game substitute that can cause some chaos in the attacking third.
