FIFA 23 Kovacic Stats

Is Showdown Kovacic Meta?

No, even with an upgrade Kovacic would not be a meta midfielder. Overall his card lacks key stats such as pace and physical.

His attacking stats are not great to play him as an attacking midfielder and his defensive stats are too low to play as a defensive midfielder.

If you do complete him, put a shadow or hunter on him depending on where you will play him!

Is the FIFA 23 Showdown Kovacic SBC Worth Completing?

No. The item is generally not great and for 70,000 coins there is better value out there.

For example, OOP Ivan Perisic is a better option for 20,000 coins cheaper! And if you need a Croatian link he would also provide this.

There’s another showdown item from the Belgium vs Croatia game out now as well! Check out who it is and the cheapest way to complete it!
