Zinchenko receives a Showdown card in FUT


The Showdown cards are back in FIFA Ultimate Team and Oleksandr Zinchenko has just received a new special card with more than interesting attributes that has already caught the attention of many players for its virtues.
This card has been added because of the match that Manchester City will play against Borussia Mönchengladbach on February 24 for the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League, which is why another Patrick Hermann Showdown card has also been added in this game mode.
But, today we will talk about Zinchenko’s card. As you may already know, if the English team wins the match this card will receive +2 points in its attributes and if both teams tie it will only receive an increase of +1 point.
Zinchenko is a LB with an offensive vocation.
Zinchenko Showdown’s pace hits full marks with Shadow chemistry style. This is a very positive factor so that he can easily fulfill his responsibilities both in offensive and defensive phase.
On the other hand, if we decide to apply Anchor as chemistry style, he could suffer against forwards who are very fast and powerful, so it is best to use Shadow as the chemistry to get the most out of him.
As for his defense, Zinchenko has 83 points of interceptions, 84 points of intelligence, 85 points of steal and 81 points of sweeps. His defensive work rate is medium, which implies that he could suffer when he have to defend if you decide to withdraw your team to protect a result.
Also, Zinchenko can suffer against prodigious and tall players, since he only has 70 points of strength and measures 1.75 meters. If he is up against a forward like Lukaku or Lewandowski they can easily shake him off with a good push.
Let’s talk about the good, his attack.
Zinchenko has a good 89 short passing points and 85 vision points, which will allow him to filter good passes from the wing and build plays perfectly with the left winger of your team.
His dribbling is also more than decent, although he has only three stars of skillful movements and that can play a trick on him. However, if we take into account his high speed and good dribbling points, he can become a very dangerous winger for the opposing defense.
Regarding his shots, he has 82 power shot points and 63 finishing points. Although these numbers are not outstanding, for a side they are more than correct and even allow him to score goals if he is totally free against the goalkeeper.
Unfortunately, this Zinchenko Showdown card has only 85 Stamina points and can drastically decrease his performance if we force him to go too high and low during the match.
Therefore, it is better to use Zinchenko in formations such as 4-3-3 that have a winger who can accompany him and do not leave the responsibility of attacking on the wing alone to him.
Zinchenko is a very good offensive LB, but he has serious flaws on the defensive end that the more conservative users won’t like. However, choose to buy FIFA Coins to add him to your team could be a wise decision due to his excellent qualities in attack.
