The addition of Headliners cards to FIFA Ultimate Team has given us a golden opportunity to get a very useful and competitive player for free: Matheus Cunha.
The Brazilian forward of Hertha BSC is a very complete player who has all the important facets that a forward needs to be decisive for his team. Furthermore, he has the advantage that his attributes can be further improved depending on his performance in real life as a headliners card.
Beyond the fact that Cunha does not have any attributes with outstanding points, he has very balanced statistics that are above the average of most forwards in the game. For example, he has 86 points of pace that make him a fast player, especially if you use hunter chemistry style that makes his acceleration and sprint improve to 95 and 96 points, respectively.
Similarly, his shooting stats are quite profitable. He has 88 finishing points, 84 shot power and 85 long shot points, more than decent points for a good FUT striker if we take into account his speed too.
In addition, with the hunter chemistry style his definition rises to a spectacular 98 points that will allow you to make the most of every scoring opportunity. Cunha also has four stars in weaker foot.
Although he may not seem like it, Cunha is a physically strong player with his 1.83 meters and 75 points of strength. In addition, he has very good dribbling points with 84 to overtake opposing defenders and protect ball possession when necessary.
However, it should be noted that Matheus Cunha does not have the best passing attributes. He only has 80 vision points and 82 short passing points, so he will not help you to make difficult passes in depth or to build plays on long possessions.
This should be taken into account because it can be a problem when playing against defenders who do not leave many spaces or against teams that play with a counter attack style.
Matheus Cunha allows you to save money.
Nobody has coins to spare in FIFA 21. The free purchase of Matheus Cunha will allow you to save and use the coins you have for other things. In fact, you could sell FIFA Coins for real money and use that money to buy FIFA Points or whatever you want.
In conclusion, Matheus Cunha’s card is quite correct and you can get a lot out of it in FIFA Ultimate Team, especially if you are still in the phase of building your team and you don’t have top-level players in your squad.
Of course, you must put Hunter as a chemistry style to be able to exploit his full potential. In addition, his Brazilian nationality will make it easy for you to introduce him into your team no matter what league he is from.
Finally, if you do not think that Cunha meets the conditions to be a starter in your team, you can also use it from the bench. His great acceleration will allow him to take advantage of the exhaustion of the defenses and be lethal in the counterattacks, so don’t underestimate him under any circumstances.
