FC 24 Ligue 1 Squad Guide

Squad Suggestions

Building a team in FC 24 Ultimate Team can be a challenge. It’s not necessary to have the best team if your budget doesn’t allow it, but it’s crucial to create a team that suits your style and needs.

When selecting players, it’s essential to carefully consider their attributes. Choosing a team solely based on ratings is a common mistake. We will guide you through the best players for each position, focusing on their key attributes.

It’s also important to ensure that the players you choose fit the formations you prefer. For example, having a skilled full-back won’t be beneficial if your chosen formation only includes three defenders.

Additionally, maximizing chemistry is crucial. While many players build squads based on a single league or nation, experienced players can create hybrid teams without sacrificing chemistry.

To cater to different player preferences and budgets, we recommend three squads with varying formations and budgets. However, please note that these formations are not necessarily the best for the Ligue 1 but are generic formations used across our squad guides.

Disclaimer Notes

This guide is based on our perception of the game, which may differ from yours. It should serve as a general orientation rather than a definitive solution, as it’s impossible to build a team that suits everyone’s preferences. Additionally, there are various factors that we are unaware of that can influence choices, such as budget, formation, custom tactics, instructions, play style, and individual player preferences.

It’s important to clarify certain criteria that we used in this guide:

  • Only Gold Players:
  • We have not considered silver and bronze players in this guide. Most of them are not capable of replacing the gold players in terms of quality.
  • Only Regular Players:
  • This guide does not take into account In-Form (IF) and special items, including Icons and FUT Heroes. These items are often more expensive and may not provide good value for players with limited budgets.
  • Only Normal Players:
  • Upgraded or transferred items are not considered in this guide. We have only included players who started the season in the Ligue 1 with their original attributes.

The selection of players for this team was based on the analysis provided in the position guides. Please refer to those guides to understand why we chose player A instead of player B.

In goal, Donnarumma is our top choice. He outperforms Keylor Navas in almost every key attribute, and he is also 11cm taller.

The decision to go with Marquinhos and Kimpembe in the center of the defense is straightforward, even though this year there are two good alternatives: Skriniar and Lucas Hernández. Hakimi and Nuno Mendes are the only quality options for fullbacks.

As a defensive midfielder, the chosen one is Kondogbia. Strong defensively and extremely robust, you may only want to replace him if you desire someone faster. In that case, Zakaria and Ugarte are options to consider.

In front of him, the ideal would be to have Verratti, but unfortunately, the Italian doesn’t have CAM as one of his secondary positions. Therefore, the role falls to Savanier, a player who may not be impressive but gets the job done.

Also on the wings, we face the issue of not being able to have Dembélé and Asensio in the same team due to position restrictions. Therefore, we are forced to replace the Spaniard with Terrier, an average player.

In the attack, Mbappé is a confirmed choice as long as you can afford his price, and we believe Kolo Muani should play alongside him. He is very skilled with the ball at his feet and also one of the fastest players in this league. This year, Ligue 1 lost many good players, which is why this team appears weaker compared to the one we published in FIFA 23

The selection of players for this team was based on the analysis presented in the position guides. Please refer to those guides to understand why we chose one player over another.

Keylor Navas fits within our budget, so the goal is in very capable hands with him.

The same applies to the center-backs. This league boasts four excellent center-backs, and two of them are affordable: Skriniar and Lucas Hernández. You may not have the same level of quality in the full-back positions, but Frankowski and Tagliafico won’t disappoint.

In the center of the field, Verratti imposes his class, accompanied by Khèphren Thuram. While Bourigeaud would typically fill this position, we believe that the player from Nice offers more defensive solidity, which is welcome in a formation that lacks any CDM.

Finally, Terrier and Asensio are good choices to play on the wings, with the most advanced position reserved for Ben Yedder, a community favorite.

This squad was assembled with players whose prices were under 15k coins at the release date. If you have extra coins to spare, you can invest in Kimpembe to make it even stronger.

In goal, Anthony Lopes is a cost-effective and quality option, and the same applies to Frankowski and Tagliafico in the full-back positions. The defense is solidified with the additions of Danso and Djaló.

In midfield, Savanier complements Thuram well, balancing the more attacking characteristics of one with the more defensive attributes of the other.

The wings are entrusted to Ito and Terrier, responsible for serving the duo of Wahi and Embolo in the front attack.

This squad was assembled with players whose prices were under 1k coins at the release date. If you want to enhance it, you can acquire Skriniar and Asensio.

Apart from the most popular players, the prices in this league are low. That’s why there aren’t many differences between the medium and low-budget squads.

If you use these players, you won’t need a manager for your team since they will be of no use and will consume contracts.
