Marcos Alonso FUT Showdown SBC Analysis

He may not be the best winger or left-mid in FIFA this year, but Marcos Alonso may be a solid Premier League LB if upgraded to a 91 rated card. His defending is solid, especially with a shadow chemistry style, and he has solid pace and dribbling with great passing outside of his poor vision. With 97 stamina as well, Alonso will be able to keep up with great wingers in FIFA throughout the game and even into extra time. If you play the five-back formations, he can also be a great tempo-pusher on the counter attack after winning the ball, and he can supply enough defense as a comeback on defense-style left-mid in a three-back formation.

While most of his stats don't scream out at you as a "meta" player, Marcos Alonso has some stats that can look great when upgraded. He links into other leagues and fills in as a superb end-game left back in the premier league. For his price, Alonso isn't the greatest card in the world, but is worth it for the upgrade potential and flexibility around the pitch.
