PES 2020 is one of the best instalments yet in the Pro Evolution Soccer franchise. PES fans will be delighted with some exciting new features and player upgrades that have been affected in the game. Check out our list of the 10 best right midfielders in the game below:
10. E. Višća
Country: Bosnia and Herzegovina
Club: Istanbul Başakşehir
Since making the move to İstanbul Başakşehir from Željezničar in the summer of 2011, Visca has been in sensational form. With 76 goals in 277 appearances, Visca is İstanbul Başakşehir’s all-time highest goal scorer. Last season, he became the first Bosnian player to be named player of the season in Turkey. Capable of scoring as well as providing for his teammates, Visca is one of the best players in his position. He’s rated 82 overall in PES 2020 with stats like 86 offensive awareness, 87 balance, 88 speed and 82 finishing.
Capable of playing as a right midfielder and as a central midfielder, Pizzi is a great addition to any team. Last season, Pizzi played 55 games for Benfica scoring 15 goals and providing a sensational 23 assists. At age 30, Pizzi may not be as fast as he was 5 years ago, but his ability to also play in central midfield means he can still have a long career playing top-flight football. After the phenomenal season he had, it’s only natural that he was upgraded to 82 on PES 2020. His in-game abilities include 85 ball control, 87 lofted pass and 85 curl.
8. Henrikh Mkhitaryan
Club: AS Roma
It hasn’t been a good season for Mkhitaryan has it? Despite starting 19 games and providing 6 goals and 4 assists, Mkhitaryan’s season was still significantly disappointing. With the incoming of Nicholas Pepe and the promotion of a few youngsters, Mkhitaryan was always destined to leave Arsenal and he finally got a move to AS Roma on transfer deadline day. When in form, the Armenian is a gifted footbalerl with incredible technical abilities. Despite being downgraded from 85 to 82 on PES 2020, his in game abilities are still good enough to win games. His best stats include 85 kicking power, 85 balance and 86 acceleration.
7. Juan Mata
Club: Manchester United
At age 31, it seems Juan Mata’s best days are behind him. The Spanish midfielder could only start 16 games last season with a less than impressive 3 goals and 2 assists to show for his efforts. On his day, Mata is as good as any midfielder in the world, although, those days don’t seem to happen as often as they used to. Despite his poor form, Mata is still a decent player and fans of PES 2020 will be contented with his 82 overall rating. His in-game abilities include 85 dribbling, 86 place kicking and 89 tight possession.
6. Daniel Caligiuri
Club: Shalke 04
By his standards, Daniel Caligiuri had a good season last year. Starting in all the 31 league matches he played in, Caligiuri scored 7 goals and assisted his teammates 3 times. Comfortable as a right midfielder and a wingback, the Italian’s versatility makes him a valuable weapon in the armory of any team. He keeps his 82 overall rating in PES 2020 with in-game abilities like 83 kicking power, 80 dribbling and 82 speed.
5. Pablo Sarabia
Pablo Sarabia’s upgrade to 83 overall rating in PES 2020 is proof of the Spanish midfielder’s impressive form last season. Capable of playing as a right winger or through the midfield, Sarabia scored a career-high 12 goals in all competitions last season. He added 13 assists to help Sevilla to a 6th place finish in La Liga. His form saw him earn a move to French giants PSG during the summer. Pacey and technically gifted, Sarabia’s most impressive abilities on PES 2020 are 87 dribbling, 86 balance and 86 speed.
4. Xherdan Shaqiri
Shaqiri didn’t play a major role in his first season at Liverpool, but he certainly did his part as the English giants strolled to a Champions League trophy and a second-place finish in the league. Despite starting just 11 games, Shaqiri contributed a decent 6 goals and 3 assists in the league. With the attacking trident of Mane, Salah, and Firmino ahead of him, Shaqiri will always find playing time difficult to come by, but his ability to contribute his quota whenever he’s called upon is surely a great asset to Liverpool. On PES 2020 Shaqiri is rated 83 overall with impressive abilities like 85 balance, 85 curl and 84 place kicking.
3. Juan Guillermo Cuadrado
Despite starting just 14 games last season, Juan Cuadrado is a technically gifted footballer who could add another dimension to the attack of any team around the world. His superior dribbling skills mean he’s a scary sight for many defenders. His ability to play as a wingback is also another reason to have Cuadrado in your PES 2020 team. If you do manage to get him, you’ll certainly enjoy his in-game stats like 85 dribbling, 87 speed and 83 kicking power.
Passionate, skillful, and pacey, Dudu is one of the bright lights to have emerged from the Brazilian league in recent times. In 2018, the winger scored 7 and assisted an impressive 14 times in 29 league appearances. Despite being stripped of the captaincy, Dudu has been a loyal servant to Palmeiras and many are still expecting him to make a big move to Europe in the near future. His 83 overall rating on PES 2020 is an upgrade on his 82 rating in PES 2019 and his key attributes in the game include 87 dribbling, 86 speed and 88 tight possession.
1. Florian Thauvin
Club: Olympique Marseille
Ever since he made his loan deal permanent, Thauvin has been in great form for Olympique Marseille. In 2017/2018, he scored 22 league goals and assisted 11 in 35 games. He followed that impressive individual performance up with an equally impressive 16 goals and 8 assists in 33 league games last season. Skilful, technically gifted, and a great finisher, Thauvin deserves his 85 overall rating on PES 2020 with the kind of performances he has produced in the last two seasons. His abilities in the game include 87 dribbling, 82 finishing and 86 ball control.
Depending on the kind of formation you love to deploy, a right midfielder with pace and decent technical abilities could come in handy. While the above players are not the fastest bunch in the game, their ability to play in several positions will definitely make them a useful addition to your PES 2020 team.
