Got SIF Costa for my TOTW loan player and he is unstoppable....Benteke is 100k cheaper though... Anybody used both?

    Benteke is an absolute animal you would not regret getting him believe me
  • I mean I think they would be the same however costa can just be the little edge to win you a games over benteke(such as aggression,and positioning) which are stuff that just come along with a higher rated player

    Bentekes pace and dribbling stats just cut it for me tbh, has a lot of traits too. If you check FUTBIN and do a compare, not tried Costa personally but can only vouch for Bentekkers. What formation do you use?
  • Benteke is a bloody BEAST for his price

    Pace / Power / Shooting are all top notch the guy is the first player ive used who regularly outjumps a GK and is great on the ground aswell. He will score from anywhere in the box with that shot power and even has great long shots too

    Works great alone aswell as a 2man combo and he creates alot too which i found surprising DEFINATELY 10/10 i refuse to sell him even tho id make near 50k profit (Snapped up for 111k during TOTGS Lighting rounds)

    He has the distance shooter trait and you really can tell can't you, I play 4321 with Martial and IF Shaquiri either side of him and he's just incredible

    I also scooped up a Costa at min bin.....I have him listed on the trade pile for a profit now though. If he doesn't sell I will give him a go too.....

    thoughts on the RM? Mane is serviceable....thinking about upgrading to Mahrez.

    His NIF was ok for me....I got on with Sane and Mane much better though.

    I use SBC Costa and he is insane. I've went from div 3 to 1 with him leading the attack so far. 26 in 28 games and 14 assists.

    Yeah I only had his SIF loan player for 3 games....6 goals. His hold up play is whats most impressive in that formation above. I threw on min bids for both him and Benteke and got them both....now I don't know who to keep lol

    SIF Benteke is a quality card, single handedly carried me to 33 wins in the weekend league. ;)

    Used both. Both are grrat cards. Costa has slightly better positioning and finishing but Benteke has a better all round game especially if you put hunter on him. Benteke is like 90% Ibrahimovic (no skill move) whilst Costa is like 120% of his normal version. To me Benteke is a better player because he can offer you better aerial threats and, in a way, flawless except no skill move. Costa on the other hand is a pure finisher.

    The fact that SIF Benteke is available such a low price is insane. Snap him up. It is a win win situation --- both on court performance and investment.

    Use engine ;) shot dont need anything engine boosts everytbing he needs curve aigilty balance
  • Jeez louise. 5 goals in 4 games for SIF Bentekers. Feels absolutely amazing. Even his link up play was class. Strangely he didnt win as many headers as i thot he would but his finishing is total class either foot and yeah jus everything. Wow, early days but wow.

    Playing with SIF Benteke, just shielding the ball is fun. I have hawk on him, and his strength is like that of a Marvel villain.

    Tried both, not a fan of Benteke. SBC Costa is the best striker I've used in all of my FIFA's, he can literally do everything.

    Benteke missed a few sitters and struggled to head anything for me. He did go 5 in 5 but SBC Costa is on a whole different level.
