Take a look at who we recommend below.

Luiz Felipe (OVR 80)

According to EasySBC, Luiz Felipe is the man to put in the Marauder Evolution in FC 24. The Italian will have a 90.3 Meta Rating after the upgrade and with a Shadow attached. With 88 PAC, 94 DEF, and an array of top PlayStyles, he looks a total beast. However, he does play in the Saudi Pro League, so could be tough to link to your main squad.

Juan Foyth (OVR 80)

Juan Foyth is a top meta option to put through the EVO and can also link to some brilliant cards released for La Liga so far this season. Block, Anticipate, Slide Tackle, and Bruiser PlayStyles also elevate his card above others. Able to play RB, RWB, CB, and CDM, he will be easy to fit into any formation.

✓ Dave’s Tips

Juan the Man

We can’t look past Juan Foyth as the best player to upgrade in the Marauder EVO. He has an incredible mix of attributes and PlayStyles, as well as linking with other top cards. Add a Shadow and your reward will be a player with a 90.0 Meta Rating!

Benjamin White (OVR 80)

Arsenal’s Ben White has fantastic stats after the Marauder Evolution in FC 24. With a Shadow, he has 88 PAC and 95 DEF, and also boasts 86 DRI! He is let down slightly by a lack of PlayStyles, but still has Block and Long Ball Pass.
