balance: think you`re right. his strength is not buli-level yet.
passing: wow, you`re even more right here
. he`s a young player, only 14 buli games. so I also tend to lower the passing values a bit.
isn`t his main position SM? and other position more AM than CM?
last week he came in for gebardt. same vs barca and Köln. perhaps an indication for SM, but might also be due to system changes, dunno.
based on this assumpution, I wouldn`t have thought on DEF>60 for him. but maybe you`ll be more confident about his position
