For all those players who plan to build a FIFA 17 Bundesliga squad, we’ve conducted an extensive analysis on the best players.
Here is our guide to the top German league in FIFA 17 Ultimate Team.
Introduction to the FIFA 17 Bundesliga Squad Guide
Building a team is the biggest challenge in FIFA 17 Ultimate Team. It doesn’t need to be the best team, this is because the budget may not allow it, but it needs to be the player’s stature for him to obtain success.
When choosing which players to play with, you will have to look carefully at their attributes. Choosing a team based on ratings is one of the most common mistakes on FUT 17. It’s precisely this aspect that this guide focuses on. For each position, and focusing on the truly important attributes, we’ll show you who are the best athletes to choose.
It’s also important that the player checks to see if the player he chooses fits the formations he likes to play in. For example, a good full back will be useless if the player only uses a formation with three defenders. According to these formations, the player must be cautious and look at the work rate. Try to relate them with the ones we advise in our Formations Guide.
Last but not least, it’s mandatory that you tune all of your team so that the individual and team chemistry will be as high possible. For this last step to be easier, the majority of the players start to define the type of team they’re building. Some choose to gather players of the same nationality, while others decide to form a team of players from the same league. There are also more experienced players that can form hybrid teams without damaging team chemistry a lot.
All of these steps are necessary to have; or it could mean that the team is not always well built as it could be. This article aims to help those that want to form a FIFA 17 Bundesliga squad. Even the players that already have a team based in this league, could take out some valuable conclusions from this guide that could help you make your team even better.
We received thousands of comments about similar guides that we have published in previous years. Most of them have asked us to help improve their teams and the players they had. It’s important that the readers understand that this guide is simply guidance. It’s a theme too vast and the player combinations are almost infinite. Besides, there are various factors that influence the choices, like one’s style of play, the formations used, the available budget, the preferences or even the time spent playing. There’s still one uncertain component: a good player for someone might not be for another. If there was a better team everyone would fight to get it. Part of the fun of FIFA 17 Ultimate Team is this: everyone has their personal club and players.
Another important point and that must stay very clear is that whoever is reading this guide, it’s about some criteria we chose and should be of everyone’s knowledge:
- Only Gold Players
In this guide we didn’t consider silver or bronze player. Most players don’t assume them to be a better option than gold players, so to simplify the guide’s analysis we didn’t include them. In the future we may come to publish guides exclusively talking about these qualities.
- Only Regular Players
In this guide we didn’t consider In Forms (IF). They’re extremely expensive and in most cases are not considered good value for money. They should only be used by players with generous budgets, that already have the best team possible and that want small upgrades.
- Only Normal Players
In this guide we didn’t consider players that have been transferred to other clubs or that have been reviewed (UP). Only players that started their season in the Bundesliga and with their original attributes were considered.
- Only Original Attributes
In this guide we didn’t consider changes made on a players performance such happens when applying training or chemistry styles cards.
- Position analysis
To make the comprehension of this guide easier we divided the players in nine distinct groups in order of their original position: Goalkeeper (GK), central backs (CB), right backs (RB and RWB), left backs (LB and LWB), central defensive midfielders (CDM) central midfielders (CM and CAM), right midfielders (RM, RW and RF), left midfielders (LM, LW and LF) and forwards (CF and ST).
- Fluctuation of Prices
In the chapter where FIFA 17 Bundesliga squads are suggested, we added a link where you can check anytime the updated prices.
The Bundesliga lives in the shadow of Premier League and La Liga but the truth is that it has many quality players.
The qualification of the champion is made through the made points system. Whichever team gathers the most points wins the league. The first four classified gain access to the champions league of the next year, while the fifth and sixth qualify to the Europa League and the last three trade places with the first two qualified of the 2. Bundesliga and with the play-off winner. Every season starts in August and finishes in May, having 34 game weeks with nine matches each, being a total of 306 matches per season.
The Bundesliga is the most watched sports league in the world and the third best league classified in the UEFA league coefficients.
Started in 1962, the Bundesliga has been conquered by twelve clubs. The dominant club is Bayern Munich, with a total of 24 titles. Borussia Dortmund (5), Borussia Mönchengladbach (5), Werder Bremen (4), Hamburger SV (3), VfB Stuttgart (3), FC Köln (2) and FC Kaiserslautern (2) were the other teams that won more than once.
As of last season, Bundesliga lost some good players such as Henrikh Mkhitaryan (Manchester United), Ilkay Gündogan and Leroy Sané (Manchester City), Granit Xhaka (Arsenal) and Loris Karius (Liverpool).
These transfers didn’t necessarily make the Bundesliga weaker. The German teams spent more than 500 million Euros on strong reinforcements: Ousmane Dembélé and Raphaël Guerreiro (Borussia Dortmund), Aleksandar Dragovic (Bayer 04 Leverkusen), Breel Embolo (FC Schalke 04), Jeffrey Bruma and Mario Gómez (VFL Wolfsburg), Douglas Santos and Alen Halilovic (Hamburger SV), Naby Keïta and Oliver Burke (Leipzig). But the biggest signing of the season happened in Munich. Renato Sanches, best young player of the Euro 2016 and Golden Boy Award winner, signed with FC Bayern for a starting transfer fee around 30 million pounds.
The choices are a lot for which our guide will certainly be useful as to building a team with players from this league. Bundesliga is a good choice to who is looking for quality players, but doesn’t want to spend so much coins as happens in Premier League and La Liga based squads.

Best FIFA 17 Bundesliga Goalkeepers
Goalkeepers are the players that are used least on the field. Because of this they are also first ignored when building a team. Most players start their purchases with a forward, later they strengthen the midfield, the defence and only later the goal. The truth is a good goalkeeper may be worth a lot of goals. They are a good investment because they are normally the most economically accessible players.
Manuel Neuer is the most popular goalkeeper in the world.
|MOST HIGH-RATED GOALKEEPERS|
When choosing a good goalkeeper it’s not only down to his rating. There are two fundamental attributes for choosing a good goalkeeper: reflexes and diving.
The first measures a goalkeeper’s agility when making a save. The best on this aspect are Neuer and Fährmann .
|GOALKEEPERS WITH BEST REFLEXES|
Diving is a fundamental attribute when choosing a goalkeeper. It measures the capacity for a goalkeeper to make a save when jumping.
In this attribute, it is Neuer the best one. Again…
|GOALKEEPER WITH BEST DIVING|
The most experienced Ultimate Team players know that another leaning factor on a goalkeeper’s performance without considering the remaining four attributes: height. The more tall a goalkeeper is, better his chances of having a clean sheet.
The Bundesliga goalkeepers are very tall. From the 20 goalies, fifeen have at least 190cm. Koen Casteels is the tallest one, 14cm taller than Yann Sommer.
|Koen Casteels||197 / 6′6″||Wolfsburg||BEL|
|Ralf Fährmann||196 / 6′5″||Schalke||GER|
|Jonas Lössl||195 / 6′5″||Mainz||DEN|
|Diego Benaglio||194 / 6′4″||Wolfsburg||SUI|
|Manuel Neuer||193 / 6′4″||Bayern||GER|
|Timo Horn||192 / 6′4″||Köln||GER|
|Marwin Hitz||192 / 6′4″||Augsburg||SUI|
|Sven Ulreich||192 / 6′4″||Bayern||GER|
|Jaroslav Drobný||192 / 6′4″||Bremen||CZ|
|René Adler||191 / 6′3″||Hamburg||GER|
|Bernd Leno||190 / 6′3″||Leverkusen||GER|
|Roman Weidenfeller||190 / 6′3″||Dortmund||GER|
|Lukáš Hrádecký||190 / 6′3″||Frankfurt||FIN|
|Rune Almenning Jarstein||190 / 6′3″||Berlin||NOR|
|Felix Wiedwald||190 / 6′3″||Bremen||GER|
The choice for the best Bundesliga goalkeeper on FIFA 17 Ultimate Team is really easy.
Besides being the best Bundesliga goalkeeper in the two most important attributes, Manuel Neuer is also the the one with best positioning, diving and kicking in the entire game.
Bernd Leno and Ralf Fährmann are very similar in the most important attributes. However, Leno is faster ans much better with the ball in the feet and for these reasons he is our second choice.
Despite being the shorter goalkeeper from Bundesliga, Sommer is our economic choice. He is a better choice than Bürki and Baumann to keep your goal safe.
#1 Manuel Neuer
#2 Bernd Leno
#3 Ralf Fährmann
#4 Yann Sommer
#5 Roman Bürki
Best FIFA 17 Bundesliga Centre Backs
A goalkeeper task is made easier if in front of him are quality central backs. Their function is to stop the opponent from getting dangerously close to your team’s goal.
Jérôme Boateng is the centre back with best reputation in Bundesliga. He’s becoming better and better every year.
|HIGHEST RATED CENTRE BACKS|
On a centre back, two attributes assume particular importance on their performance: defending and physical, which represents strength, stamina, aggression and jumping.
A player with good at defending will have an easier chance of dispossessing the opponent and avoid him reaching your box.
It’s the case of the two best rated players, Boateng and Hummels. It’s really hard to get past them. The most experienced players are normally those who have a higher rating with this attribute.
|CENTRE BACKS WITH BEST DEFENDING|
The physical attribute shows the old heading capability but also how likely the players are to win game with their body. This is a crucial attribute when looking for the best centre back.
In this chapter Boateng and Papadopoulos are the strongest ones.
|CENTRE BACKS WITH BEST PHYSICAL|
|Kyriakos Papadopoulos||84||RB Leipzig||GRE|
Defending and heading may be useless against fast opponents. It’s necessary to fight fire with fire. No one likes feeling impotent when seeing you get overrun by extremely fast players. Even though, in a way, centre backs aren’t that fast, every team needs one of these players with a high pace attribute.
David Abraham and Boateng, always him, are the fastest centre back playing in the Bundesliga.
|CENTRE BACKS WITH BEST PACE|
Jérôme Boateng is our number one choice for this position. Fast and with good defending and attacking attributes, he is for that the without a chance most expensive of all central backs of the Bundesliga.
The big question is: who will partner with Boateng? It isn’t easy to decide. Hummels is usually the most used, because he is the Bundesliga centre back with the best passing and dribbling stats. In fact he is a great player but, in our opinion, he’s not fast enough. Naldo and Sokratis are the best choices. They are much faster and have better physical stats. If you just need someone to help avoid conceding goals Sokratis, the cheapest of these three, is the right man for that job: he has more suitable work rates, jumps much much better (yes, twice!), is more aggressive, strong and in better shape.
#1 Jérôme Boateng
#4 Mats Hummels
#5 Ömer Toprak
Best FIFA 17 Bundesliga Right Backs
RB | RWB
Full backs have the role of troubling the job of wingers. In addition, good full backs also support their team mates on offensive manoeuvres.
Philipp Lahm, back to this position, is the most popular right back playing in Bundesliga.
|HIGHEST RATED RIGHT BACKS|
There are very important attributes for any right back: defending and pace.
Since they’re defenders they should have good defending capacities. This reduces a team’s risk of conceding.
In Germany, no one defends as well as Lahm.
|RIGHT BACKS WITH BEST DEFENDING|
A flanked game tends to be faster than a game based in the middle of the field. The players that fill these spaces are obligated to be fast, both penetrating defensive and attacking moves of the team. Pace is one of the most important requirements for a good full back. Even in FIFA 17.
Brosinski is the fastest Bundesliga right-back in FIFA 17 Ultimate Team. Besides him, only Caiçara and Weiser may be considered reasonably fast.
|RIGHT BACKS WITH BEST PACE|
|Theodor Gebre Selassie||77||Bremen||CZ|
The right-backs are probably the most difficult choices of this league. Piszczek and Lahm are clearly the best players to this position but the one you should use depends of your needs. You should pick the Dortmund’s player if you use your right back to attack. If you don’t, then you need to play with Lahm. He is an amazing player but not fast enough, even applying him the right chemistry style, to play in the wing. Like his work rates show, he is a top defender but don’t expect from him much more than that.
If you don’t have enough coins to buy them, try Weiser, our economic choice.
#1 Philipp Lahm
#2 Łukasz Piszczek
#3 Mitchell Weiser
#4 Daniel Brosinski
#5 Júnior Caiçara
Best FIFA 17 Bundesliga Left Backs
LB | LWB
Left backs have exactly the same role of their team mates on the other flank. In other words, they try to make a winger’s job hard and participate in the team’s offensive manoeuvres.
David Alaba is the big name for this position. Ricardo Rodriguez is also used by many Ultimate Team fans.
|HIGHEST RATED LEFT BACKS|
|Abdul Rahman Baba||78||Schalke||GHA|
If you need someone to defend, you need to pick Alaba.
|LEFT BACKS WITH BEST DEFENDING|
|Abdul Rahman Baba||74||Schalke||GHA|
Alaba, Baba and Wendell are much faster than any other left back.
|LEFT BACKS WITH BEST PACE|
|Abdul Rahman Baba||86||Schalke||GHA|
David Alaba is, in our opinion, the best left back playing in Bundesliga. He is one of the best left backs of FIFA 17, and that’s why he is widely used in hybrids squads.
Just like in previous years, Ricardo Rodriguez is still our second choice. He’s far from the Alaba quality but he costs several times less.
Wendell is fast and has a decent passing, making him the best alternative to the two most popular left backs from the Bundesliga.
#1 David Alaba
#2 Ricardo Rodríguez
#4 Marcel Schmelzer
Best FIFA 17 Bundesliga Defensive Midfielder
Many of the FIFA 17 Ultimate Team formations require some midfielders that have a natural aptitude to defend. Central defensive midfielders distinguish themselves for being especially aimed to help the more retreated line of their teams. According to their attributes and their work rates, they can also be useful for starting attacks. They are players that occupy a very strategic position in the field.
With regard to the popularity, the supremacy of Xabi Alonso, Luiz Gustavo and Lars Bendter over all other Bundesliga central defensive midfielders is extremely clear.
|HIGHEST RATED CENTRAL DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDERS|
|Per Ciljan Skjelbred||78||Berlin||NOR|
There are a variety of attributes in a central defensive midfielder that you have to give attention: defending, so that the first defender of team works; strength, so that you win all brawls in a prone area of the field; heading, to win possession in aerial moves like goal kicks; pace, so that you cover the most terrain on the field as possible; stamina, so they can equally participate in offensive and defensive moves (especially useful for players with high/high work rates); passing and possession so that he can properly start attacks. In our opinion the two first are the most important.
Normally using a central defensive midfielder is associated with having a deficit of elements in your defence. So, it makes sense that when you search for a player to occupy this position you’d want players that can defend.
Luiz Gustavo, Bender and Guilavogui are really good choices for teams that want to complicate an opponent’s game in the space between the midfield and the defence.
|CENTRAL DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDERS WITH BEST DEFENDING|
The area of the field occupied by the central defensive midfielders is the one where most ball disputes happen. Strong players will have a higher probability of winning the ball.
Baumgartlinger is the best on this side.
|CENTRAL DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDERS WITH BEST PHYSICAL|
|Per Ciljan Skjelbred||75||Berlin||NOR|
If you are used to read our players reviews, you already know that we hate slow players. Sometimes, when a player has amazing stats we make an effort to like him. That’s not the case of Xabi Alonso. This man is slower than our grandma!
Luiz Gustavo is the most balanced defensive midfielder of this league. He will offer security to your back line. However, if you need someone more focused in the attack, we suggest you Rode and Bender.
CENTRE DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDERS
#1 Luiz Gustavo
#2 Sebastian Rode
#3 Lars Bender
#4 Josuha Guilavogui
#5 Xabi Alonso
Best FIFA 17 Bundesliga Centre Midfielders
CM | CAM
A lot of games are decided in the midfield and not close to the goals. The players that play in these zones are the ones that should create the game and define its rhythm.
Arturo Vidal is by far the centre midfielder most rated in the Bundesliga.
|HIGHEST RATED CENTRE MIDFIELDERS|
Centre midfielders are responsible for discovering lines that break the opponents defence. Their passing quality has to be really good so they can assist forwards.
Passing stat is very balanced between the centre midfielders of Bundesliga.
|CENTRE MIDFIELDERS WITH BEST PASSING|
A Centre midfielder usually needs creativity. Good dribbling allows the team to move forward, creating potential disequilibrium’s.
In this league, only Robben and Ribery have better dribbling than Götze and Thiago.
|CENTRE MIDFIELDERS WITH BEST DRIBBLING|
|Koo Ja Cheol||81||Augsburg||KOR|
Arturo Vidal is undoubtedly the best player for this position. He is strong, fast and with great stats for all other attributes, including amazing stamina and work rate. He can play as CAM, CM or even CDM.
Our second choice is Renato Sanches. If you are asking why we have chosen a 78 rated player, that’s because you haven’t tried him yet. He is a beast, one of the best surprises this year. There is a casting issue with the Golden Boy winner: he is not a CAM or a CM. In the best of chances, he is a CDM. With his high/high work rate, amazing stamina, strength and aggression the best you can do is to give him freedom to play every where.
Draxler and Thiago are both great players. You should pick them according to your needs: the Wolfsburg player is more suitable to the CAM position, while the Spanish midfielder plays better as CM. The same applies to Gonzalo Castro and Mario Götze, in a slightly lower qualitative level.
For lower budgets, we also recommend Çalhanoglu and Goretzka, our economic choice.
#1 Arturo Vidal
#2 Renato Sanches
#3 Julian Draxler
#5 Gonzalo Castro
Best FIFA 17 Bundesliga Right Wingers
RM | RW | RF
The wingers are responsible for giving game width in the attack. They’re normally very explosive players.
Arjen Robben is the right winger most popular who play in Bundesliga.
|HIGHEST RATED RIGHT WINGERS|
|Pablo De Blasis||76||Mainz||ARG|
There are three fundamental attributes for a winger: pace, dribbling and passing.
Pace is probably the biggest weapon of these players. They use it to evade opponents and getting to the other side, many times via sprints on the side lines.
The Bundesliga is well served in this chapter. Three gold players have pace 90 or higher, being the highlighted Heller. In other hand, the age of Robben costs him a decrease of 6 points.
|FASTEST RIGHT WINGERS|
|Pablo De Blasis||81||Mainz||ARG|
Just being fast doesn’t cut it to reach the opponents box, having good dribbling to surpass the opponents’ players that appear on the way.
There are a lot of players gifted in dribbling, but in Bundesliga no one can be compared to Robben.
|RIGHT WINGERS WITH BEST DRIBLLING|
|Pablo De Blasis||82||Mainz||ARG|
When reaching the opponents box the winger has to decide what to do. Normally, they choose to cross to the forwards. That is why it’s important for them to have good passing.
Only Robben offers good quality passing.
|RIGHT WINGERS WITH BEST PASSING|
|Pablo De Blasis||70||Mainz||ARG|
Robben is clearly the most indicated players to occupy this position in a team without budget restraints. He is the right winger with best passing, shooting and dribbling in this league. The only problem is his price.
For those that can’t pay so many coins, Bellarabi is the best alternative. He is really fast and has a great dribbling stat.
If you want to save your coins, don’t waste them on Dembelé. He’s more popular than Herrman, Traoré or Vierinha but his skills don’t justify the extra money you have to pay for him.
#1 Arjen Robben
#2 Karim Bellarabi
#3 Patrick Herrmann
#4 Ibrahima Traoré
Best FIFA 17 Bundesliga Left Wingers
LM | LW | LF
The left wingers have exactly the same role as their team mates from the other side.
Reus and Ribéry are the two most popular left wingers playing in Bundesliga.
|HIGHEST RATED LEFT WINGERS|
|Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting||78||Schalke||CAM|
The left wingers of the Bundesliga are even faster than the ones of the right side.
|LEFT WINGERS WITH BEST PACE|
In the world, only four players have better dribbling than Ribery.
|LEFT WINGERS WITH BEST DRIBBLING|
|Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting||83||Schalke||CAM|
|Emil Forsberg||80||RB Leipzig||SWE|
Franck Ribéry and Marco Reus have passing stats very similar.
|LEFT WINGERS WITH BEST PASSING|
There is an old rule for FIFA videogames: the cover athlete receives a bonus in his stats. We are not saying that Reus is not a great player, but probably we didn’t needed to test him to know that he is better than Ribery and Douglas Costa. Between these two, our preference goes to the younger one, mainly because of his pace.
It’s incredible to see so many quality players for this position in the Bundesliga. Not even Schürrle is in the top 5.
Like in FIFA 16, Kostić and Fabian Johnson are great options for low budget teams.
#1 Marco Reus
#2 Douglas Costa
#3 Franck Ribéry
#4 Yevgen Konoplyanka
#5 Kingsley Coman
Best FIFA 17 Bundesliga Forwards
CF | ST
The forwards are the players on which fall the most responsibility of scoring goals.
Lewandowski is in his career’s top-form.
|HIGHEST RATED FORWARDS|
To score goals shooting is necessary. If either by foot or head, the most important attribute for a forward are: shooting, heading and pace.
Most goals are scored with the foot so good shooting is a necessary attribute for a forward.
The most rated forwards are the ones that best shooting: Lewandowski and Aubameyang.
|FORWARDS WITH BEST SHOOTING|
Jump, strength and stamina are the ingredients to the new physical attribute, very important when we are analysing the best forwards: jump to score with the head; strength to dispute the ball with the opponents; and stamina to sprint in direction of goal at any time of the game.
Most of the best Bundesliga strikers don’t have good physical. It’s not the case of Raúl Bobadilla.
|FORWARDS WITH BEST PHYSICAL|
|Franco Di Santo||75||Schalke||ARG|
Depending on the style of play and formation, having good shooting and heading may not be enough for a striker. Especially in games that privilege counter-attack, pace is a very important attribute.
Aubameyang is the fastest player in the game.
|FORWARDS WITH BEST PACE|
|Timo Werner||90||RB Leipzig||GER|
|Franco Di Santo||73||Schalke||ARG|
Having Lewandowski and Aubameyang together in the same team is so hype! The Bayern’s striker is better in almost everything but who doesn’t want to try the fastest player of the game? Aubameyang is even better this year! Thomas Müller is a very balanced forward, but far from the quality of these two.
There is a lack of quality strikers for medium budget squads. The best three we found were Javier Hernández, Hahn and Volland. Our preference goes for the first one, mainly because of his pace. Hahn is faster than him and also has very interesting stats but his work rate medium/high is not the best one for a striker.
#1 Robert Lewandowski
#2 Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
#3 Thomas Müller
#4 Javier Hernández
#5 André Hahn
FIFA 17 Bundesliga Squad Suggestions
A lot of people think that this is the most important part of the guide. It’s not. The thing that is really important to know is how to choose players based on their role and style of play that fits each player. The team suggestions that follow are simple graphic indicators of what we wrote previously. They should serve merely as orientation because it’s impossible to build a team that fits everyone. They depend on various factors we don’t know such as budget, formation, style of play and player preferences.
To try and explore the needs of the maximum player as possible we suggest three teams with different budgets and formations: 4-1-2-1-2 with unlimited budget, 4-3-3 with medium budget and 4-4-2 with a low budget.

The choice for this team’s players was based on the analysis made previously.
If there are undoubted players in this team, Neuer is certainly one of them. It is clear his superiority.
Boateng and Alaba are untouchables in any defence of any league. In the right side you can use Lahm, if you want to keep your goal safe, or you can play with Piszczek, if you need someone able to attack. In our opinion, the other spot of the defence should be filled by Sokratis or eventually by Naldo. Hummels is too slow to take this position.
It is very unusual to see a 78 rated player in the starting eleven of an unlimited budget squad but Renato Sanches deserves it. He is better than any other native CDM of this league. In front of him, Vidal is another player with high/high work rate and with an amazing stamina, making this midfield one of the most feared.
Who builds an unlimited budget Bundesliga squad must use a formation with wingers. Robben, Reus, Ribéry and Douglas Costa are four of the best wingers in the game. Aubameyang and Lewandowski are the perfect pair to the attack. They complement each other very well.
Once all the players reach maximum individual chemistry via loyalty (achieved by each player after 10 matches for your club or by being pack pulled) you can go without a manager for your squad. They’ll be of no use while wasting contracts.

The choices for this more affordable team players was based on analysis made previously.
Most of the players of the previous team are too expensive to be used in the medium budget squad. Sokratis and Renato Sanches are the only two who keep been elected to the starting eleven. Leno, Naldo and Ricardo Rodriguez don’t have the same quality but they allow you to save many coins.
The central midfield position of this team has to be of Renato Sanches. He builds up the first barrier between your goal line and the opponent, making his physicality attributes count. Thiago and Draxler complete the midfield.
In the attack, Bellarabi and Konoplyanka have the mission to assist Javier Hernandez. If you need a stonger striker, use Adrián Ramos.
If you still have some room in your budget, Douglas Costa is the player that would improve this squad a lot.

The choice for this budget team was based on analysis made previously.
In the goal, Yann Sommer is a decent very cheap goalkeeper. Brosinski, Bender, Dragović and Wendell are the four other defenders. Any of them is a great value for money.
On the midfield, Luiz Gustavo and Junuzović complement each other well. The first one is strong, quick and aggressive, the second is a player that usually pushes forward to assist his colleagues. Herrman and Kostić fill the wings in order to assist Hahn and Volland.
