The Best FIFA 19 Serie A Defensive Midfielders


Many of the FIFA 19 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.

World’s Champion Matuidi is by far the most popular defensive midfielder.

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.

De Rossi and Matuidi are the ones who defend better.

Riccardo Montolivo Milan ITA 73

Ivan Radovanović Chievo Verona SRB 72
Soualiho Meïté Torino FRA 71

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.

Again, Matuidi and De Rossi are among the best on this side.

Matuidi is undoubtedly the best player for this position. Serie A fans should be happy to see a player of this class playing in Italy. There is no other CDM as fast as he is which makes him even more special.

If you don’t have enough coins to buy him, you can try to sign the old good Daniele De Rossi or Marco Parolo.

The Best FIFA 19 Serie A Centre Midfielders


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.

It’s in midfield that there’s more quality in the Serie A. Some of the world’s best footballers play there. It’s the case of Hamšík, Pjanić, Milinković-Savić and Nainggolan.

Blerim Džemaili 77 Bologna SUI
Antonín Barák 77 Udinese CZ


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.

Even though Hamšík has a great passing stat, Miralem Pjanić is the one who does it better.

A Centre midfielder usually needs creativity. Good dribbling allows the team to move forward, creating potential disequilibrium’s.

Once again, Miralem Pjanić is the centre midfielder with best dribbling stat in the Serie A.

Nainggolan is our favourite centre midfield from Serie A. He can play in any position of the midfield. He knows how to attack and how to defend. Who doesn’t like to play with high stamina and high/high work rates players? The only problem is his price. As alternative to him, if you want a CM to play as a CDM, we suggest you Allan. Khedira and Emre Can can also play that role.

In other hand, if you need someone more attacking, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Marek Hamšik are perfect. Pjanic has better passing and dribbling stats but he is not as good in the other attributes.

The Best FIFA 19 Serie A Central Attacking Midfielders


An attacking centre midfielder is responsible for creating chances to score. He should have a good dribbling, a decent passing, a high long shot stat and a great vision.

No other CAM can be compared to Paulo Dybala in this league.


Paulo Dybala 89 Juventus ARG
Borja Valero 81 Inter ESP
João Mário 81 Inter POR
Adem Ljajić 80 Torino SRB
Valter Birsa 80 Chievo Verona SVN
Gastón Ramírez 79 Sampdoria URU
Riccardo Saponara 78 Sampdoria ITA
Ante Ćorić 76 Roma CRO
Camillo Ciano 75 Frosinone ITA


How we explained, the central attacking midfielders need to have good passing stats, so they can assist forwards.

Valero is usually the CAM with best passing stat in Italy but this year he was caught on the top by Dybala.


Paulo Dybala Juventus ARG 84
Borja Valero Inter ESP 84
Valter Birsa Chievo Verona SVN 80
João Mário Inter POR 79
Gastón Ramírez Sampdoria URU 79
Riccardo Saponara Sampdoria ITA 77
Adem Ljajić Torino SRB 76
Ante Ćorić Roma CRO 73
Camillo Ciano Frosinone ITA 72


If a CAM is a good dribbler, he can make all the difference when the team is attacking.

In the world, only Messi, Neymar, Hazard and Isco have better dribbling stats than Dybala.


Paulo Dybala Juventus ARG 91
Borja Valero Inter ESP 84

Valter Birsa Chievo Verona SVN 82
Riccardo Saponara Sampdoria ITA 81
Ante Ćorić Roma CRO 80
Gastón Ramírez Sampdoria URU 79
Camillo Ciano Frosinone ITA 76


Dybala has no competition. He is the fastest CAM, the one with best passing and shot stats, and also the Serie A player with the best dribbling stat. The only question you may have is: in which position you will use him?

Try to avoid all other CAMs and pick a CM to play in this position.

The Best FIFA 19 Serie A Right Wingers


The wingers are responsible for giving game width in the attack. They’re normally very explosive players.

José Callejón and Juan Cuadrado are the most popular right wingers playing in the Serie A.


Juan Cuadrado 84 Juventus COL
José Callejón 84 Napoli ESP
Samu Castillejo 83 Milan ESP
Federico Bernardeschi 82 Juventus ITA

Alen Halilović 76 Milan CRO
Iuri Medeiros 76 Genoa POR
Joel Campbell 76 Frosinone COS
Rômulo 76 Genoa ITA
Andrea Conti 75 Milan ITA


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.

Keita Baldé is the fastest right winger in Italy.


Keita Baldé Inter SEN 92
Juan Cuadrado Juventus COL 91

Iuri Medeiros Genoa POR 73


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, being Cuadrado the best.


Juan Cuadrado Juventus COL 87
Suso Milan ESP 86

Joel Campbell Frosinone COS 78
Rômulo Genoa ITA 77
Manuel Lazzari SPAL ITA 75
Andrea Conti Milan ITA 75


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.

Suso is the right midfielder who has the best passing on this league.

Cuadrado should be your first option for this position if you are building a Serie A squad. He’s fast, has an amazing dribbling and he is a 5-stars skiller.

Most of the community uses José Callejón as alternative to Cuadrado but, in our opinion, Simone Verdi is better than him. And cheaper too…

In our opinion, only three players are good enough for this position: Douglas Costa, who is the fastest one; Perišić, who is not so fast but stronger; and Insigne, who is the most balanced from these three. We don’t recommend any other player, except for low budgets squads.

  1. Matthew Pitt

    I had Insigne and he was rubbish in fut. Couldn’t do anything with him. Constantly lost the ball as wasn’t strong enough.

  2. Lee Mcglinchey

    No put nainggolan in cam as cheaper option to dybala that’s what I have done in my team

  3. There is no really good CAM in Serie A except the expensive Dybala. I would say that a CM will do much better in this position. Considering Hamsik, Bonaventura or even Gomez (he is CF so no position change needed.
