FIFA 19 Serie A Squad Guide

FIFA 19 Serie A Squad Guide


For all those players who plan to build a FIFA 19 Serie A squad, we’ve conducted an extensive analysis on the best players. Here is our guide to the top Italian league in FIFA 19 Ultimate Team.


Introduction to the FIFA 19 Serie A Squad Guide

OTHER LEAGUES ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ??

Building a team is the biggest challenge in FIFA 19 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 19. 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 19 Serie A squad. Even the players that have a Serie A team, 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 and custom tactics 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 19 Ultimate Team is this: everyone has their personal club and players.

Remember that this year, we published separate Serie A guides for each position. You can visit them, clicking in the colourful links in the top of this page.

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:

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.

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.

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 Serie A and with their original attributes were considered.

In this guide we didn’t consider changes made on a players performance such happens when applying training or chemistry styles cards.

In the chapter where FIFA 19 Serie A squads are suggested, we added a link where you can check anytime the updated prices.


Serie A

FIFA 19 Serie A overview

The Serie A is one of the most competitive leagues in the world, but the football is not as spectacular as it is in UK, Spain or Germany.

The qualification of the champion is made through the made points system. Whichever team gathers the most points wins the league. The first three classified teams gain access to the champions league of the next year, while the fourth and fifth qualify for the Europa League and the last three trade places with the first three qualified from the Serie B. Every season starts in September and finishes in May, having 38 game weeks with ten matches each, being a total of 380 matches per season.

The Serie A is the second best league classified in the UEFA league coefficient.

Started in 1898, the Italian league has been conquered by sixteen clubs. The dominant club is Juventus, with a total of 34 titles. AC Milan (18), Inter (18) and Genova (9) are the other teams that have won numerous titles.

Serie A is a good choice for those who are looking for quality players, but don’t have a large budget. There is not many choices, but the players in Serie A are probably the best value for money.

FIFA 19 Serie A Squad Suggestions

Ideas to help you building your FIFA 19 Serie A Squad

The team suggestions that follow are simple graphic indicators of the Serie A articles already published. 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, custom tactics, 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 position guides published previously.

Handanovic is one of the best goalies you can use in FIFA 19. It’s natural to see him on our unlimited budget squad.

Chiellini and Alex Sandro are untouchables in any defence of this league. In our opinion, the other spots of the back line should be filled by Cancelo and Koulibaly. However, Manolas is also a great option. If you think that Napoli’s Centre back is not fast enough, even with the right chemistry style, then don’t be afraid to use the Roma’s defender. He is really fast and gives security to any defense.

Nainggolan, one of the most versatile FUT 19 players, is a CM but he is better than any other native CDM of Serie A. We love his high/high work rates and amazing stamina. In front of him, Dybala is another top-quality player, making this midfield the strongest point of this league.

Now something that you need to pay attention: who builds an unlimited budget Serie A squad shouldn’t pick a formation with wingers. We only did it because it’s our default formation, the one we use in every single guide. There are not many quality choices for this position. Cuadrado and Douglas Costa are the best ones. Matuidi, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Marek Hamšik and Miralem Pjanic are just a few examples of great players who have no room on this team because of the formation.

In the attack line, Ronaldo is obviously there but the other player depends on your preference. Generally speaking, Mertens is the first choice but only if you usually don’t cross to the box. In that case, Immobile and Higuaín may be a better choice.

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 team were based on the position guides that we have published before.

In goal, Szczesny is good enough to keep you safe.

Benatia and Manolas are great examples of how it is possible to build a great team without paying too much coins. Cancelo (again) and Dalbert fill the other spots.

The central midfield position of this team has to be assigned to Allan or Khedira. They build up the first barrier between your goal line and the opponent, making their physicality and defensive attributes count. Besides that, they start the attacks very well, thanks to their passings skills. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Marek Hamšik are not the cheapest alternatives to the two other spots on the midfield, but they add so much quality to this squad.

On the wings, Cuadrado is cheap enough to keep his spot on the team but El Shaarawy only appears here because there isn’t anyone better than him, excepting Douglas Costa, Insigne and Perisic, and all of them are too expensive to this budget. If you want to build a strong Serie A team without spending all your coins, you should try to find a formation without wings or, even better, someone from other league that won’t get low chemistry.

Icardi is the ST of this team but, if you don’t have enough coins to buy him, you can replace him by Alejandro Gómez.

If you still have some room in your budget, Perisic would improve this squad a lot.

Once again, the choice for this team was based on our previous guides.

Donnarumma is cheap enough to keep his spot in the team. Kasdorp, Vrij, Juan Jesus and Criscito complete the defence.

In the midfield, Daniele De Rossi and Bonaventura complement each other well. The first one is strong, quick and aggressive, while the other one is a player that usually pushes forward to assist his colleagues. Castillejo and Perotti fill the wings in order to assist Lautaro Martínez and Luís Alberto.


Follow our tips and you’ll become more successful on FIFA 19 Ultimate Team with your Serie A Team.

  1. Hi Rodrigo. I have a difficult question. im playing 4-3-2-1(2)
    GK Sirigu tots
    LB alex sandro CB Chiellini, koulibaly RB Cancelo tots
    CDM naingolan, de paul inform
    LM douglas costa ucl road to final
    CAM dybala RM Messi
    ST Icardi

    now the peoblem is that i dont score with icardi i dont know why, im getting good chances but no one scores >.< i played your laliga guide before and i did well at least 1/2 goals per game with griezman. is there any way to improve them with some tactics i dont understand? or may i should go for another ST? BTW my chem is on 99 cause the argentina triangle on the right site
    cheers ado

    1. Hi! I used to play with a Serie A squad and Icardi was by top scorer. If he isn’t working with you, maybe you should try another player. We all have different game-styles with different needs. Maybe Aguero, for example, could work better with you. Custom tactics, instructions and styles could help but if it is not working now, it is easier to change the player than trying to find out the perfect setup. Cheers

  2. Hi Rodrigo,

    I am looking for an expert serie A guy, seems you are my man. Plenty of good info here, looking forward to your comment.

    Serie A is really offering some great opportunities, but – thats the downside – makes it really harder to decide on the 11 guys send out on the pitch. As I am already arguing with my serie A team, I think about making a hybrid team, but I am still undecided. I hope you can give your two cents. My team (4-3-3 below or 4-2-3-1):

    GK: Szczesney IF (88)
    RB: Calabria (FS)
    LB: Sandro (86)
    CB: Koulibaly (87), Skriniar Headliner (88)
    CM/CDM: De Rossi SBC (90), Hamsik SBC (91) or Khedria Futmas (87)
    CAM: Mostly Dybala (89), Sometimes Gomez IF (87), maybe Hamsik SBC in the future
    LW: Douglas Cost (86), I am thinking about Kluivert FS or Cervinho (FUT Birth.) as an alternative
    RW: Best (90)
    ST: Chiesa (84) or Martinez FUT swap (84)

    Subs: Dost Scream (84), Isco Futmas (91), Mata SBC (89), Manolas CL (86), De Jong (90), Falcao (89), Pjanic IF (87), Bonaventura Carniball (87), Hulk IF (84), De Bruyne (91); Suarez (91), Jordi Alba TOTGS (87), Müller Carniball (87)

    My problems:
    1. Defense: Make defense better: maybe Nesta (90; then I need to sell some guys) or make an upgrade on Koulibaly? Some say, that De Rossi should move to CB position, havn`t done that yet.
    2. Midfield CM/CDM: I think De Rossi is fine as CDM/CM, not sure if Matuidi is better than Khedira Futmas, Nainggolan (85) didn´t work for me (don`t no why), didn`t try savic, got luis alberto IF and he is no alternative for me.
    3. Midfield CAM: Dybala gets pushed of the ball very often (maybe I am lacking skills), I hope Hamsik is better at CAM, then Dybala moves to ST
    4. ST: Dybala is mostly fine, but i am missing some alternatives. I had mertens in 4-2-3-1 as RCAM, but was very disappointed (maybe not the best position for him) and can not afford mertens carniball right now. Insigne is LW and small (nice one, but not a game changer).

    Hybrid alternatives:
    Tulip style:
    Integrate De Jong as CM (FS) with Tagliafico LB (UCL 86; need to buy) and Kluivert LW (need to buy) on the left side?

    Belgian choclate:
    Integrate Hazard as LW (91) with Mertens and Nainggolan (don´t know if this is worth a try)

    French/Argentina connection:
    Integrate Messi as ST (that are a lot of coins) with Dybala CAM, and Dembele IF LW (86) and Matuidi (85) behind Dembele (french/french)

    A lot of alternatives, not easy to decide. Maybe you can give some pointers.

    Thanks and cheers

    1. Hi. In fact, my first team is based on Serie A.
      1) Forget De Rossi. Chiellini is better than him. If you are not happy with your CBs, maybe you should save for an ICON.
      2) I had to play around 50 matches with Naingollan until I understand how I could take the best from him. Matuidi is also a decent choice.
      3) Again: Dybala is probably the best CAM of this league. I understand your point but no one is better than him. In my opinion, Mertens is ana amazing ST and that’s where he needs to play.
      4) Give a try to Icardi. He is my best scorer.
      About you hybrids the third one is too expensive. The second one is the cheapest one and I would try that.

  3. I am fan of Milan, my team now is:
    GK: Donarumma (SIF,86) – Reina (83)
    DR: Cancelo (81)- Vrsaljko (UCL,82)
    DC: Manolas (85) – Skriniar (85)
    DC: Juan Jesus (SBC,84) – Romagnoli (82)
    DL: Ghoulam (IF,84) – Cristico (81)
    CDM: Milinkovic (85) – Bonaventura (82)
    CDM: Nainggolan (85) – Allan (82)
    RW: Cuadrado (84) – Blade Ketia (80)
    LW: Perisic (86) – Calhanoglu (Halloween,81)
    CAM: Mertens (87) – Gomez (84)
    ST: Belotti (IF,84) – Zaza (82)
    When I use Calhanoglu to startup, I will take him and CAM to switch their position, he is too slow but excellent in shoot with both feet.
    But I have questions about:
    1. Suso (SIF,86) is good, but may cause the formation too narrow as his is good in shooting not crossing. Should I buy it.
    2. I like 2 CDM, Nainggolan, Milinkovic, Matuidi, Bakayoko(IF,83). 2 of them?
    3. Who is better in CAM, Hamisk, Mertens, Gomez (IF, 86)
    4. Is Sandro & Cancelo (IF,84) necessary?
    As budget is limited, how could I upgrade my team?

    1. 1. No.
      2. Nainggolan + Matuidi
      3. I would use Mertens as ST but if you don’t, you need to use him as CAM. His brilliant.
      4. Sandro is much better than any other LB. Cancelo is our favourite as RB. They do not play in crucial positions but try to use them if possible.

  4. Hi what do you think about my Seria A ? Do you reccomend something to do better? Formations or players
    GK: Handanovic UCL live 89
    CBs: Koulibaly IF 90 – Chiellini IF 90
    LB: Alex Sandro RB: Florenzi
    CMs: Hamšík SBC 91 – Naingolan 85
    LW: Costa 88 UCL live
    RW: Cuadrado 87 UCL live
    STs: Mertens IF 88 – Insigne IF 89

      1. Florenzi is amazing across his low rate, his stamina is awesome in game and he stops 90%attacks at wing, i want him as ucl live 🙂

        1. If you like Florenzi, I think Florenzi UCL Live is best choice. Roma have won 1st leg, and probably beat Porto again. The Florenzi may increase to 88 and become the best DR in game.

    1. Hi there. What can I do to improve on my Seria A team? Formation 4-2-3-1
      GK- SIF Donnarumma
      RB- CL Cancelo
      CB- koulibaly
      CB- swap reward Juan Jesus
      LB- Alex Sandro
      CDM- Nainggolan
      CDM- Matuidi
      RM- Cuadrado
      LM- future star Justin Kluivert
      CAM- SIF Gomez
      ST- OTW Ronaldo

  5. Hey man, loved the guide.
    I’m a bit stuck on how to structure my team and dont know a decent formation that would work for it.
    RB- Florenzi (UEFA), CB- Koulibaly and Chiellini, LB – Alex Sandro
    CM – Dybala and Nainggolan
    RW + LW – Jose CAllejon (TOTW) and Insigne
    ST – Mertens and Immobile
    Anything i can add or takeaway? Or decent formations that may help?
    Thanks in advance

    1. Thank you. Your team looks great (in fact, it is very similar to mine). Assuming that you have a GK, you can try Dybala on the midfield but there is no much more you can do to improve it without spending a fortune.

  6. Hi Rodrigo. I have been building a seria A team with a 433(4) formation. I spent most of my coins now, but will start to save more soon. The team behaves wonderful at least on my level, so I am not sure what to do with the next coins I may save.
    RB:Florenzi CB:Koulibaly CB:Manolas LB:Alex Sandro
    CM:Milinkovic-Savic CM:Nainggolan
    RW:Bernardeschi ST:Higuain LW:Douglas Costa
    I am not sure if Mautidi can be better CM than Milinkovic-Savic. Or if buying any of the top 3 CB will make a lot better than Kouli or Manolas which are great. I know Cuadrado will improve the RW, I will go for him first. But other than that not considering CR7 or Dybala, I cannot see anything to improve. Do you agree?

    1. Hi. There is (almost) always room for improvement.
      In my opinion, Chiellini is better than Manolas (yes, it will make a difference). Matuidi and Savic are too different: the first helps the defence, while the other one scores many goals and also assists his teammates. It depends on how much attacking you want to be. I also agree that Cuadrado is much better than Bernardesch. Later, you can also think in Cancelo and Handanovic. However, keep in mind that, if the team is playing the way you want, you should be careful with your improvements.

      1. Thanks for the advice. I will save for Chiellini. Savic looks good there even if he’s not too defensive, Nainggolan balances the midfield well for now.

  7. Hi, I currently have a serie A squad and I play a 4-3-2-1. I Have
    Champs league Perin (GK)
    Alex sandro (LB)
    Chiellini (CB)
    Skriniar (CB)
    Vrsaljko (RB)
    Matuidi (CM)
    Khedira (CM)
    Hamsik (CM)
    Douglas Costa (LW)
    Mertens (ST)
    TOTW Jao Cancelo (RW)

    I have not had much luck with this team. Should i look to replace anyone or try out a different formation? Any suggestions?

    1. I would drop Joa to RB. Get either cuadrado or balde for your RW or even Verdi. Maybe get rid of khedira and get nainggolan. Good luck!

  8. Hello, I am unsure on where I can go to make my Serie A team better knowing that I can’t afford Ronaldo.

    Iam currently running a 4-3-3 (2)

    GK: Handonavich

    Defence: ICN Roberto Carlos (86), Chiellini, koulabali, Cancelo

    CDM: Nainggolan

    CM: hamsik, Dybala

    Forwards: Insigne, Mertens, Costa

    Subs: Matuidi, CL callejon, M.Savic, Pjanic, Bonucci, Manolas, Cuadrado

    Please let me know where you think I can improve? Whether it be in player selection or formation or both.

    Thanks a lot!!!

    1. Hi. I have a team very similar to yours, so I know what you are feeling. It’s not easy to improve it without spending many coins on ICONS or special/IF cards, which most of the times are not good value for money.

  9. Hello, Rodrigo!

    Thanks for a great guide.

    I’d like to ask for your advice. So, now I have 3-4-2-1 formation and the following squad:
    GK Handanovic
    CB Benatia – Chiellini – Koulibaly
    LM Douglas Costa
    CM Pjanic – Hamsik
    RM Cuadrado
    CAM Dybala
    ST Immobile – Higuain

    Sub + Res: GK Szczesny CB Manolas, Bonucci, De Vrij LM Insigne CM Matuidi, Milinkovic-Savic, Joao Mario (IF) RM Callejon CAM Mertens ST Icardi, Lasagna (Swap Reward).

    I’m thinking of changing formation to 4-1-2-1-2 but not sure because of average wing backs. But I’m rather tired of playnd 3 CBs..

    So, could you, please, tell me what is the right way to move to new formation and if there are possible implrovements to the current one.

    Thanks in advance.

    P.s. I’ve read about Mertens as ST, but I usually make a lot of crosses, that’s why I use him as CAM in rotation with Dybala.

    1. Hi. Except Ronaldo, no one is a better ST in the Serie A than Mertens. I understand your point, but have him on the bench doesn’t make sense to me either.
      Maybe you should try 41212 (2). In that case, you will need Cancelo and, if possible, Alex Sandro. Good luck.

      1. Thanks, I will try 41212 (2), if possible, could you suggest squad for this formation?

        Ronaldo is too expensive, unfortunately.

        1. Handanovic, Cancelo, Alex Sandro, Chiellini, Koulibaly, Matuidi, Nainngolan, Dybala, Hamsik, Dybala and Mertens. You can also use Pjanic, removing Matuidi from the team and using Nainggolan as CDM.

        2. Hello Ilya! Put Icardi in front he is crazy good! I play with a lot of crosses too and have a 4-3-3 formation my wingers are Perisic and Cuadrado all three of them score lots of headers!

  10. Hi I wanted your opinion on where to improve my squad. I’m running a 4-2-4
    GK: Lafont (FS)
    RB:Calabria (FS) cb:Chiellini cb:Koulibaly lb: Alex Sandro
    CM:Nainggolan CM:Fabian (TOTW)
    RW:Cuadrado ST:Dybala ST:Mertens

  11. Hello,
    I’ve got a tricky team looks like this:
    4 2 3 1
    Donaruma IF 86
    ICN R. Carlos, de Vrij SBC, Chiellini, Cancelo for def
    Naingollan, UCL Pjanic, for def mid
    Dybala, Mertens, Ilicic IF for att mid
    Immobile ST
    I would like to replace Ilicic and Immobile taking in consideration i have Hamsik and Higuain as subs plus J. Rodriguez….i can’t affor Ronaldo so any suggestions would be awesome

      1. That’s actually something that never came to my mind and the chem loss is also insignificant. Cheers mate you’re the best

      2. I bought the two and i can say they’re absolute monsters scoring ratio doesn’t go below 1 GpG. I’m playing Aguero as ST, Icardi RCAM, Dybala CAM and finally Mertens LCAM and it’s a perfect attacking combination. So cheers again mate for the great suggestion!!!!

          1. New status of the team …..i replaced Icardi with de Bruyne …100% chem ….mid league monster. Fut Champs almost 30/30, but i kind of suck at the game so i got only 22 hahahha. Hope this will help anyone with similar teams. Cheers

  12. Hey, Thanks for the guide it really helped me. I want to make some upgrades, but i dont have coins for big players like dybala and ronaldo can you suggest something. My formation is 4-2-3-1
    Khedira FUTMAS (CDM)
    Mertnes (LAM)
    Higuain (CAM)
    Mandzukic (RAM)*Must Change*
    Immobile (ST)

    1. Hi. Yes, Mandzukic can’t play in that position. I love Icardi but he will not play at his best as a CAM. You have the option to buy Matuidi for CDM and place Nainggolan as CAM but you probably will want someone faster. In any case, you should also think in Hamsik for that spot.

  13. Hi rodrigo, i am using this 4-4-1-1 formation and i want to change this formation. Except the 4-2-4, can you please suggest me any other formation and the players i should use.

    GK: Handanović
    CB: Chiellini
    CB: SBC Skriniar
    LB: Alex Sandro
    RB: Cancelo
    CM: UEL Hamsik
    CM: Naingolan
    LM: Douglas Costa
    RM: Cuadrado
    CF: Mertens
    ST: Icardi

  14. I am struggling to upgrade my team, I have this so far but want some inform players to boost it a bit more.
    I play 4-2-2-2
    POTY Versajko koulibaly chielleni Sandro
    Naingallan 88viera
    Dybala mertens
    POTY Ronaldo immobile

    Was looking at europa league hamsik or inform koulibaly something along them lines any help is appreciated

    1. Hey, my friend also has a team along the lines of yours. I would suggest inform koulibaly, inform suso is also very good for subs. I would also recommend inform 86 cancelo as right back.

    2. What a team! You probably love Immobile because I can’t find any other reason to see him in a team like this one. That should be your priority. The Hamsik and Koulibaly cards you have talked don’t represent an important upgrade.

  15. Hey rodrigo, I have recently made a pretty good seria a team with a mediuim budget I would say.

    I play a 4-1-2-1-2 wide. My team reads from left to right,
    Handonovic, Kolarov(LB), Manolas(CB), Empty(CB), Cancelo(RB)
    Naaingolan(CDM), Peresic(LM), Cuadrado(RM), Hamsik(CAM), Immobile(ST), Mertens(ST)

    I will put koulibaly in the cb empty spot once i have enough coins, after I do this what are your suggestions for my full backs along with my midfielders. I play a lot of through balls, and take a lot of finnese shots near the 18 usually playing long balls if I am playing on the wing. What are your suggestions.

    1. Hi. Yes, Koulibaly would be awesome. Cancelo is great but Alex Sandro is probably too expensive to the left side. right? In that case, Dalbert can play on that spot while you are saving more coins. On the midfield, I believe the only change you can try is Douglas Costa or Insigne to replace Perisic.

      1. Hey rodrigo, thanks for the reply, I looked at the possible options of replacing perisic, I might go with Costa, I am very ambitious from outside the 18 with finesse shots, will douglas costas shot get interfere with my play style.

        1. I played dozens of matches with him (probably hundreds) and I’m still not convinced. That’s the only player that still has something to prove to me. I keep rotating between him and Insigne. He’s (just) decent outside the box.

          1. Ok I did get douglas costa, but I am wondering about switching to a prem league team, with all my players and handonovic being untraedable can you make me a starting 11 with the same value of my current club

  16. Hi. I have these players:
    GK: Szczesny
    DF- Cancelo, Albiol, Manolas, Kolarov/Dalbert
    Rest of them are s*it from other leagues.
    I want to play 4-1-2-1-2 and sometimes to swap in 4-2-3-1 or something similar.
    As CDM, should i buy Matuidi or Nainggolan?
    As CAM, which is the best CM to play CAM?
    As CM, should i play with Cuadrado and Costa as CM (NOT RM OR LM)? And should i buy Savic and Pjanic / Nainggolan to replace them sometimes? I saw that Savic is cheap, but i dont know what should i chose between Pjanic and Nainggolan.
    And as ST, should i buy Immobile, Icardi or Mertens? (2 of them)\
    ~220k to spend.
    Thanks to yall!

    1. Hi. Forget Albiol. You have plenty of better options on this league (Koulibaly, for example). Matuidi is great to play as CDM. Pick Nainggolan. Icardi and Mertens are two great ST in this case.

  17. José Magalhães

    Hey I would like to know what you think I should get next, my team is as follows:
    (they are ordered left to right)
    Normal 433
    Gk – Szczesny
    Defenders: Kolarov, Manolas, Koulibaly, Cancelo
    Midfielders: Mertens, alejandro gomez, matuidi
    Attackers : balde diao (if-83), bakayoko (if-83), Mbappe

    So basically in-game bakayoko switches with mertens.
    I’ll be waiting for a response 😉

  18. Hi! I have 600k and want to build a Serie A XI, who should I go for? I’m used to playing 4-3-3 with an CAM but should I change to 4-1-2-1-2?? Thanks!

    1. Hi. Keep the formation you are used to, and only try another one if it doesn’t work (be sure to adjust the instructions and the tactics first).
      You can try something like Handanovic, Cancelo, Koulibaly, Chiellini, Alex Sandro, Naingollan, Matuidi, Dybala (CAM), Cuadrado, Diego Costa (or Insigne) and Mertens.

      1. I hv exacly the same team only i have choose for better header higuain st and mertens as cam, is that good or do i really hv to get dyabala instead?

        1. It depends on your play style. If you cross a lot to the box, you have made good choices. Otherwise, Mertens is a better ST than Higuain. Dybala is great but too expensive when compared with Mertens or other skilled players.

  19. Hi admin and fellow futfanatics! My team is at the moment a Serie A based 3 – 5 – 2

    Gk: buffon
    Cb: Chiellini, Bonucci, Florenzi
    Mid: Diego Costa, Pjanic, Milincovic-Savic, Cuadrado
    Cam: Hamsik
    ST: Icardi, Immobile

    Subs: perisic, mertens, insigne, nzonzi, bonaventura, belotti, jose callejon

    I have a hard time deciding who goes where. Often the small fast players never win duells and get tackled easily. Therefore they end up on the bench. I have tried Douglas costa on RM and perisic LM. It works but there are no cards to make it go with the chem. I dream about Ronaldo and dyabala, but they are just to expensive.

    Do you have any suggestions to what I can do to settle with my team?

    1. Hi. I play with a Serie A squad, so your issues are familiar to me. I believe that Matuidi or Nainggolan could be good improvements to your midfield, keeping Cuadrado on the right and D Costa on the left (in fact, Insigne he as good as he is).

  20. Hi, can someone help me, my team is now 4-1-2-1-2
    Sirigu GK
    Bonucci and Skriniar CB
    Ghoulam TOTW LB
    Joao Cancelo RB
    Sami Khedira FUTMAS CDM
    Keita Balde TOTW LM
    Rigoni FUTMAS RM
    Milinkovic-Savic CAM
    Mertens and Immobile ST

    subs is:De Vrij, Hysaj, Perisic, Parolo(Europa TOTGS), Dalbert, Calhanoglu(Hallowen)

    and i want to buy dybala to CAM, and I need some sugesstions what playes to change or maybe formations… if someone have time to answer formations and best player change.

    1. Hi @Hrco2409
      I got to Gold 1 with this in fut champs

      I would change formation to 4-4-2 personally sell bonnuci and get manolas, get Cuadrado for RM, get Szczsney instead of Sirigu.

      Cancelo Manolas Benatia Dalbert
      Balde Savic Allan Persic
      Mertens Gomez

      What console are you on, if you want and you are on Xbox add MM7Games21 and I can tell you everything that you need to know.

      Hope this helps,

      1. Tony2001Gamer

        @Rodrigo Lopes (Admin) can you make me a 200k Serie A team please I have got UEFA Europa League Savic (UNTRADEABLE) and Naingolaan (UNTRADEABLE) and suggest chem styles

      2. @Rodrigo Lopes (Admin) Can you please build me a squad with Heung min son, roberto firmino and Arias, all futmas. I have around 500k, and if it helps i have tottenham dembele UCL and have gotze flashback + Lerma swap player + Lucas POTM + Zaha Futmas. Only thing i need in the squad are the first 4, the other ones can maybe help you a little. I would like a pacy attack too.

  22. Hi, can somebody give me advice about who to buy next?
    My current Team: 4-1-2-1-2

    GK: Handanović
    CB: Benatia
    CB: Manolas
    LB: Alex Sandro
    RB: Cancelo
    CDM: Pjanić
    LM: Douglas Costa
    RM: Cuadrado
    CAM: Mertens
    ST: Gómez
    ST: Lasagna [84] – Swap Deals Reward

    I am thinking about Dybala, Chiellini, Cancelo TOTW or Nainggolan.. but I don‘t know which one i should buy first for my Team. Or would you buy someone else first?

  23. Hi is pjanic worth adding to my midfield formation is 4–1-2-1-2
    Gk- Donarumma
    Rb- florenzi
    Lb- Sandro
    Cb- chillinie
    Cn- manolas
    Cdm- matudi
    Cm _ niangollan
    Cam – Gomez
    St – mertens
    St – insignie

    1. Go for allan as CDM and use merterns as CAM he is great and you can try Ciro immobile, or Bellotti IF as ST.

  24. Hi you say you use 4-2-4. What would be your unlimited team and subs using that formation

      1. My team is
        Untradable cl costa

        I have a second team prem which I could sell n go one team n but dybala n chiellini

  25. FORMATION 4-3-3
    GK – Szczesny (84)
    RB – Cancelo (86)
    CB – Manolas (85)
    CB – Skriniar (85)
    LB – Kolarov (82)
    CM – Savic (85)
    CM – Pjanic (86)
    CM – Hamsik (87)
    RW – Cuadrado (84)
    ST – Immobile (87)
    LW – Perisic (86)
    My current team feels solid but i’m not a fan of immobile. Can you recommend a pacey striker with decent shooting and dribbling? I have tried Mertens as ST but his strength is far too low. I would also appreciate recommendations for other positions.

    1. Hi. I’m not fan of Immobile either. To be honest, my greatest scorer is Icardi. He may not be the best (he isn’t) but for sure the best value for money.
      However, in your case, maybe Dybala as ST would be who you are looking for. I also recommend Koulibaly, Chiellini, Handanovic, Matuidi and Douglas Costa.

    2. What chem styles do u have on your team @sheryar and @Rodrigo Lopes (Admin) can you make me a 200k Serie A team please I have got UEFA Europa League Savic (UNTRADEABLE) and Naingolaan (UNTRADEABLE)

  26. Curious on what route you would go with if you were in my shoes. I am debating between continuing with my Serie A squad or trying to switch over to a La Liga side. My reasoning is that other squads I have been playing lately are getting some very overpowering defenders and with “Shadow” they are equally as fast to my attackers but my attackers lack any strengths to hold them off (martens, insigne) or are slower and weaker than them (immobile, icardi).

    My playing style is to sit in on defense with the strong back 4 and 2 CDM holding the middle of the park then breaking out on a counter with my CAM and 3 attackers sitting up the pitch.

    I currently have a budget of 170,000 coins, and a squad with over 500 players which I could easily sell off or use for the Toni Kroos SBC right now.

    Current Squad Starters (4-2-1-3): Handanovic, Cancelo, Koulibaly, Chiellini, Sandro, Matuidi, Nainggolan, Dybala, Insigne, Mertens, Costa
    Subs/Reserves: Immobile, Cuadrado, Skriniar, Costa, Icardi, Hamsik, Callejon, Benatia, Florenzi, Bonucci, Miranda, Kolarov, Pjanic.

    Possible La Liga 11 to start (4-1-2-1-2): Oblak, Sergi Roberto (already have), Godin, Umtiti, Filipe Luis (already have), Kroos, Casemiro, Modric, Isco, Rodrigo, Diego Costa
    Reserves already in my squad: Vidal, Lemar, Guedes, Martins, Mariano

    With my coins, players, and current squad I should at least be able to get that la lirg side if not a few upgraded players like Ramos, Varane, Bale…

    OR should I continue with my Serie A side and just work for an Icon or two in the attacking positions?

    1. Hi.
      First of all, let me say that my personal team is basically the one you are using. I had the chance to build a squad from other leagues but I decided to keep with my Serie A squad. Usually, I think we should go for the squad with as many NIF cards as possible. However, this Serie A squad is pretty good (I play in 424) and it may work better than your suggested LaLiga squad. Sell the players you don’t want (do it fast because prices are dropping) and save coins to make a few adjustments. There will be always chances to improve it. For example: right now you can get Insigne ST 90, which is ana amazing card (yes, too expensive but other cheaper alternatives are also available).

  27. Hi, you mention building the best Serie A team, you wouldn’t necessarily play diamond.
    What formation would you play which who where?
    Currently playing 4-3-3 just be interesting to know your thoughts.

    1. Hi. To be honest, my main squad is from Serie A and I use wingers. 🙂 I play in 424 and I’m loving it. However, it depends on your style.
      4312 looks to be an interesting formation to try using Serie A players.

    1. Hi. We are strongly committed to providing the best user experience possible. Can you please provide more details or eventually a screenshot of your issue? What premiership teams were you talking about?

  28. Pawel Miszewski

    Great guide, it helped me a lot with serie a squad grow stronger. Any chance for update with upgrades of colored cards please?

  29. Great review –

    Brozovic is a very good addition and absolutely underrated this FIFA but his card is very good! You didn’t mention Perisic at all or Keita Balde and Lautaro who are also good cards

  30. Hi, great guide, useful as always. Just a little mistake in the intro: the first FOUR team qualify for Champions League.
