FIFA 16 predictions: Edinson Cavani
Edinson Cavani – Paris St Germain & Uruguay
FIFA 15 Rating – 86
Predicted FIFA 16 Rating – 87
Edinson Cavani has had another stellar season with Paris St Germain, spearheading the attack for the French champions both with, and without, the talismanic Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Cavani has scored 16 goals for PSG in 34 league appearances and an impressive strike rate of six goals in ten matches in the Champions League as PSG reached the quarter finals.
With Ibrahimovic suffering with a number of minor injuries and suspensions this season, Cavani has been a reliable source of goals for the team as they successfully regained their French title. Being utilised either through the centre or on the left, Cavani is a lethal finisher but also holds the ball up well, linking play with his teammates.
Cavani is an experienced international player with Uruguay, having scored 25 goals in 71 appearances for his country. He regularly partners Luis Suarez in attack providing Uruguay with a world class striking partnership.
Entering his third season with PSG, Cavani will be looking to continue his good form at both domestic and European level as PSG look to make a real impact in the Champions League. With both Ibrahimovic and Ezequiel Lavezzi also in fine form, it may be that next season PSG finally make that impact.
