FIFA 20: 10 Biggest FIFA 20 Player Downgrades – Naldo, Sanchez & Matic

FIFA 20: 10 Biggest FIFA 20 Player Downgrades – Naldo, Sanchez & Matic

Thanks to EA slowly revealing the new FIFA 20 database, we can give you our opinion on the top 10 player downgrades in FIFA 20. We will include Alexis Sanchez, Matic, Naldo and some other players who we believe you will be surprised to see their FIFA 20 rating.

10. Sergio Ramos (-2 OVR)

Sergio Ramos his FIFA overall drop from a 91 FIFA 19 rating to a 89 FIFA 20 rating. These 2 rating points are quite significant for a player who was in the top 10 players in FIFA 19 and now has fallen outside this bracket. His pace and defending have taken the largest hits, despite the drops he still is one of the best CBs on FIFA 20.

9. Luis Suarez (-2 OVR)

Luis Suarez has lost a lot of pace in FIFA 20, 7 points in total. This will significantly reduce his price on FIFA 20. Also, Suarez has seen a 3 point reduction in his dribbling but given that everyone wants a relatively fast striker his price should be significantly lower.

8. Toni Kroos (-2 OVR)

Saying that Toni Kroos has taken a hit on pace would be highly insufficient. Toni Kroos has seen an anhilation of his pace, from 67 in FIFA 19 to only 45 in FIFA 20. This is a 22 rating drop in his pace which is an unbelievable decrease. His price will be significantly lower than in FIFA 19 and will probably be cheaper than other lower rated La Liga midfielders such as Rakitic or Frenkie de Jong.

7. Iniesta (-4 OVR)

Iniesta has seen his FIFA 20 rating fall by 4 rating points. Comparing the individuals stats, the card doesn’t look much worse. He has lost 5 pace, but for a CM his pace isn’t horrific. What goes against him is his terrible 59 stamina.

6. Bastian Schweinsteiger (-4 OVR)

Bastian Schweinsteiger is a true German legend, but his FIFA 20 card looks pretty schlecht if you ask us. In FIFA 20, Schweinsteiger has a position change to CB. His pace is reminiscent to Per Mertesacker when he used to play but his defending and physical starts are not great. It’s sad to see that his defending stat has dropped by 3 points despite now being a CB.

5. Mario Gomez (-5 OVR)

Mario Gomez used to be the number 1 German striker not too many years ago. In reality, not many used his card in FIFA 19 and not many will use his card in FIFA 20. Hopefully, EA could give Gomez a throwback card in FIFA 20.

4. Nemanja Matić (-5 OVR)

Nemanja Matić has lost 5 rating points in FIFA 20. His overall went from 86 in FIFA 19 to only 81 in FIFA 20. His card could be quite nice in a FIFA 20 starter squad, especially since he is 6ft 4.

3. Gianluigi Buffon (-5 OVR)

Buffon did not play too many games for PSG last season, but one remembers the calamitous game in the Champions League against Manchester United that saw them eliminated from the competition. If you want a cheap keeper with amazing positioning, Buffon is still a good shout.

2. Alexis Sanchez (-5 OVR)

Alexis Sanchez has seen a massive fall from grace, from being an 89 rated player in FIFA 18 to only being an 82 rated player in FIFA 20. He also only has 71 stamina in FIFA 20, which along with his pace doesn’t make him a great winger. Hopefully, he can get his confidence back under Conte and start scoring goals again. A few special cards or an SBC and he will be a nice card to use in a Serie A team.

1. Naldo (-6 OVR)

Naldo is the most significant downgrade in FIFA 20. He has seen a massive 10 rating drop in pace and 6 rating drop in defending. Naldo is still a 6ft 6 man mountain and would be a good choice in a Brazilian FIFA 20 starter squad.
