FC 24 Serie A Defenders

The Best Centre Backs

The presence of skilled central defenders in front of a goalkeeper greatly facilitates their task. These defenders play a crucial role in preventing the opposing team from approaching your team’s goal in a dangerous manner.

Two attributes are particularly significant for central defenders: defending and physicality. A player with strong defending abilities has a higher likelihood of successfully dispossessing opponents and preventing them from reaching the penalty area. The physical attribute measures the players’ ability to use their bodies effectively in winning possession.

The Best FC 24 Serie A Centre-Backs

Global Overview (CB)

There are plenty of quality center-backs in this league, but in our opinion, Tomori and Bremer are the best ones. They are very strong, fast, and only three other players defend as well as they do. Our preference goes to Tomori, who is faster, but Bremer is also impressive.

If you’re looking for options that are a bit below the quality of these two, you can also consider Bastoni and Casale. There is also Smalling, who is a good defender but too slow for most teams.

The Best Right Backs

The role of Serie A right backs is similar to their counterparts on the opposite flank. Their primary objective is to make it challenging for opposing wingers and actively contribute to their team’s offensive strategies.

Defending and pace are crucial attributes for any right back in the Italian League. As defenders, they need to possess strong defensive abilities to minimize the risk of conceding goals.

Given the nature of play on the flanks, which tends to be faster than the central areas of the field, right backs need to be quick, capable of both defensive and attacking movements, and able to penetrate the opposition’s defenses. They play a vital role in supporting the team’s overall gameplay.

The Best FC 24 Serie A Right-Backs

Global Overview (RB, RWB)

Finally, Serie A has a right-back that matches its quality. Di Lorenzo is the full-back everyone will want. Fast, with good passing and dribbling, the Italian is also very competent in defense.

Alternatively, we suggest you go for the speed and passing quality of Cuadrado or the strength of Dumfries.

The Best Left Backs

The role of left backs in Serie A is similar to their counterparts on the opposite side. They strive to make it difficult for opposing wingers and actively participate in their team’s offensive strategies.

Defending and speed are essential attributes for any left back in Serie A.

As defenders, left backs need to possess strong defensive abilities to minimize the team’s vulnerability to conceding goals. Given the faster pace of play on the flanks compared to the center of the field, left backs must be quick, adept at both defensive and attacking movements, and contribute to the overall team gameplay through their incisive runs and defensive contributions.

The Best FC 24 Serie A Left-Backs

Global Overview (LB, LWB)

There is more quality on the left side of the defense than on the right side, which isn’t difficult. However, there are only 16 left-backs from which to choose. It’s easy to agree that Theo Hernández is the best left back in four of the six face stats: pace, dribbling, defense, and physical.

If you can’t pay Hernandez’s price, we suggest you try Spinazolla. He is also very fast, good at dribbling and 4/4 skills and weak foot.
