There’s something very, very strange about Chiellini and Barzagli’s FIFA cards

Giorgio Chiellini and Andrea Barzagli are the backbone of the Juventus defence.

While there’s not much to separate the two in terms of ratings – Chiellini has 88, Barzagli 86, a closer look at their stats reveals something very interesting.

Despite the pair both having the same pace rating, one is actually faster than the other.

Let’s take a closer look at their stats, courtesy of Futbin.


Barzagli’s ratings are on the left, Chiellini’s on the right.

Both have the same scores on pace and acceleration – but their sprint speeds are different.

Gamers on the FIFA Reddit, were quick to discuss how this could have happened.

Some believe the ratings are rounded up – which could explain the discrepancy. Others state factors such and agility and weight could have had an impact – although this seems unlikely.

Either way, it’s an interesting case.
