The Best Strikers in the World - Picking the Perfect Pair

Matchday Mobile is here SOON. As players start collecting and winning new cards to build their ideal squad, we’re going to focus on what makes the perfect pair up front. Matchday has thousands of officially licensed footballers to use in game. Each one has both an OVR (Overall Rating) and four sub stats we have unofficially christened the ‘Core Four’.

Creating the ideal dynamic duo isn’t necessarily as simple as picking the highest OVR FWDs, namely Kylian Mbappé (92 OVR) and Erling Haaland (91 OVR). While of course this phenomenal pairing can overwhelm many a defensive line, are they truly complementary players? (And what does that even mean?)

Criteria for the Perfect Pair Up Front

Although there is no player that excels in every category, we’ve carefully picked out a few pairings to give you an idea of what might work best within Matchday Mobile.

Vinícius Júnior & Lionel Messi

Erling Haaland & Caroline Graham Hansen

Mariona Caldentey & Victor Osimhen

Julián Álvarez & Kadidiatou Diani

These are some of our picks for dynamic duos in Matchday Mobile. Do you agree with our pairings? Perhaps you've spotted a potentially unstoppable combination that we missed? We want to hear your thoughts and see your favourite duos! Tell us which pro pairing you’d make and why, on the Matchday Discord server.
