Butragueño..The poor mans Giovinco

So been using Giovinco in a hybrid 30k squad , and I have been blown away by his NIF card. His agility, ball control, trickery and finishing is messi like. After 6 games I have 9 goals and 5 assists but even those stats don't do him justice, he has terrorized the DEF in every single game. So here are my questions..


Has anyone done the SBC challenge for his 86 rated card recently and if so how many coins did you spend?


Thanks in advance..

    WOW. I was expecting at least double. If thats the case and I can get that 86 rated card for anything under 80-100k I am so starting that SBC right now. I almost feel like starting Giovinco appreciation thread... :smirk:

    Just so you know it's taken 4 days to get the players I have at prices I'm happy with and use a lot of players out of position or position chahged.

    Thanks again for the advice. I really appreciate it. I just started the Chicago fire team and am looking around for bargains. This is definitely gonna take some days.

    hmmm interesting topic :) anyone is using him? I was thinking to do 4312 with Butragueno Dybala and Rui Costa on CAM but with Giovinco i can do SBC Giovinco Bergkamp/Butra and Costa on CAM ;) i compare Butra with Gio and WOW! They looks almost the same pace same, long shots Giovinco is better Finishing ofc on Butra site but FK Specialist, FK accuracy 91 on Giovinco, passing giovinco is better stamina same hmmmmm looks decent!

    final team will look like this

    oh ok i made reconnaissance and its rly f*cked to buy some players for example SK City you need 3x CM one is not a problem because its gold but get 2 more its mission impossible or pay 10k each ... probably other clubs have same problem so its probably 20k-30k each club if you dont have patience... ;/

    He is absolutely immense

    Even better that you can afford legends to link with him, I'm hamstrung a little with having him in a full Italian team but he is absolutely class. Well worth the 150K or so it cost me. I did make a fair bit back from the packs too so it's not all bad

    I have him, to be honest he's pretty ordinary for me, although that might be because he doesn't fit my style of play.

    He's incredibly quick, but needs a little bit of space in front of him to be useful dribbling wise, if he has that space his dribbling's good. Passing he's not great, missing easy passes, although once in a while he'll pull off a gorgeous through ball. Shooting is good, although not as good as his stats say.

    I had no patience and spent 170k. There were a lot of price fixes on players. Sporting KC was insanely expensive. I can say though that after using him for 38 games the difference is noticeable and I am glad I spent the coins to get him. When you do compare him to Butragueno the cards are almost identical and he's worth 1 MILLION COINS! The only downside is the League Gio is in but he makes up for it with Italian links IG.


    Regarding your concerns Cadey 5 gave me advice to mix and match positions.

    For example: If there is a price fix on a silver cm player at lets say 7k just buy a cheap striker from that same team and use ST-CF/CF-CAM cards to get around those price fixes. Another thing I did was if the CB's were price fixed I just put a GK/LB/ST bronze card in one of those slots and still managed to get the required chem and rating required.

    Hope that helps..

    yeah i saw that on LA Galaxy that cm players are fixed but its easy to make from keane or dos santos CAM

    maybe you know that "easy" teams that you can spend on them 2k-3k-4k on team? i will made it in first attempt

    Do you use Instructions on him? Also what tactics are you using? I play Possession and walk the ball up pass it to Gio near the box and just zig zag/skill/LT past defenders for the goals

    I wrote down how much I spent on each club. Here is a list of the 10 cheapest.

    5,400 Real Salt Lake
    5,600 Sounders
    6,550 Vancouver
    7,400 Philadelphia
    7,650 Montreal
    8,150 San Jose
    8,650 Toronto
    9,450 D.C
    9,450 Galaxy
    9,800 Houston


    One way to not get overwhelmed is start with squad builder and only choose bronze players for the side. Most MLS teams have a handful of bronze cards and they are almost always 150-200 coins so buy those up. Then use squad builder and search for gold players but choose the cards to not replace your existing team as to not loose those bronze concept cards. After all that just search for silver cards on the formation page and fill in the gaps.

    The bronze and gold players should have taken up a decent amount of positions only leaving you with some silvers to get. Some will be price fixed but most you can get for a reasonable price.

    I am one player from finally doing it :D its cost me somewhere been 70-100k so think I did well, I've managed to get the sporting players for ab average of 2k under max still stupidly over priced but I'm satisfied.

    Thats awesome dude.. Congrats. When you consider the similar stats to Butragueno and he's a milli. 100k is highway robbery

    I would compare him more to a Greiz with a 4* weak foot if you look at base card stats and work rates still half the price though.

    I don't use instructions or special tactics because I'm lazy as balls haha

    He's at CAM, and I play a passing game focused on triangles using wing backs for width, Ultra-Attacking with 5-2-1-2. I've personally found his dribbling to be pretty mediocre unless he has a yard of space, where it because quality.

    It's probably just my play style tbh. Also I'm only in Div 5 haha

    150k for the whole lot maybe? I've got 4 players left to get and that is a completely rough guess as I've not had more than 40k at a time and have done it bit by bit
