SBC Cost: ~75,000 Coins

Worth it? 50/50. For an 89 rated Diego Costa card, with 96 Physical, you can’t fault the value of this SBC. However, a major issue includes his poor agility and balance, coupled with his 2* skill moves.

Diego Costa In-Game Stats & Player Analysis

Diego Costa, when looking at face stats, looks to be an incredible card, however there is an issue with regards to his agility and balance.

Firstly, his main attribute will be his insane physicality. With 99 Strength and 99 Aggression, this card will be a handful for any defenders, and will be very difficult to get off the ball.

With 95 Finishing, 93 Shot Power and 94 Positioning and 97 Composure, there’s no doubt for me that Costa will be an incredible finisher in front of goal.


Unfortunately the main downside to this card is how clunky he will feel on the ball. Despite having okay pace, his 65 Agility and 59 Balance are very key stats for FIFA 20’s meta, and only having 2* skill moves will hurt him further.

A Sniper chemistry style will help improve his stats somewhat, however there isn’t a chemistry style to improve his 2* Skill Moves unfortunately.

Being Spanish in La Liga, there are tonnes of ways you can link Diego Costa into your team.


Outside of icons, there are a number of good strong links you can use to get Costa on chemistry. The new Headliners cards in 87 Saul and 87 Moreno are both interesting new cards you can use, plus fellow Spaniard 87 Iago Aspas is another strong striking option.
