FIFA 23 Serie A Squad Guide

Squad Suggestions

Building a team is the biggest challenge in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team. It doesn’t need to be the best team since the budget may not allow it, but it needs to be a team designed for your style and needs.

When choosing which players to play with, you must look carefully at their attributes. Choosing a team based on ratings is one of the most common mistakes. For each position, and focusing on the critical attributes, we’ll show you the best players to choose from.

It’s also important to check if the player you choose fits the formations you like to play in. For example, a good full-back will be useless if the player only uses a formation with three defenders.

Last, it would help if you tried to get the maximum chemistry possible. Most of the players base their squads on a single league or nation, but the most experienced ones can build hybrid teams without hurting chemistry.

To cover the needs of as many players as possible, we suggest three squads with different budgets and formations. But, please, keep in mind that we are not saying these are the best formations for this league. They are the generic formations used in all our squad guides.

Disclaimer Notes

This guide is based on our perception of the game, which may differ from yours. It should only be used as an orientation since it’s impossible to build a team that fits everyone. Besides that, there are several factors we don’t know that influence the choices, such as budget, formation, custom tactics, instructions, style of play, and player preferences.

Another vital point that must stay very clear to whoever is reading this guide, it’s about some criteria we used:

  • Only Gold Players
    Silver and bronze players are not taken into account in this guide. Most of them are not good enough to replace the gold ones.

  • Only Regular Players
    This guide does not consider IF and special items, including Icons and FUT Heroes. Most of them can’t be considered good value for money and should only be used by players with a reasonable budget.

  • Only Normal Players
    Upgraded or transferred items are not taken into account in this guide. Only players who have started their season in Serie A and with their original attributes were considered.

Unlimited Budget Squad

FIFA 23 Serie A Squad

The choice for this team’s players was based on the analysis made in the position guides. Please look at those guides to understand why we picked player A instead of player B.

Maignan is our natural choice for the goal. He is much better than the other goalkeepers playing in Italy.

In our opinion, Tomori and Škriniar are, without a doubt, the best center-backs in this league. They are solid and fast, and only de Vrij defends as well as them.

On the right side of the defense, you will have to make your first big decision. Not because you are unsure about the best player, but because Cuadrado is the best right back and the best right midfielder playing in Serie A. In our opinion, you should leave him as RB because there are no suitable replacements for this position, while you have some decent RMs.

Theo Hernández, supported by his amazing pace, has no competition on the left side of the defense.

No one is better than Tonali giving you the security to the back line. He is the fastest defensive midfielder but also one of the best in the other face stats, which means he is also ready to support the attack. In front of him, Dybala is one of the best players in this league. Among all the attacking midfielders from Serie A, he has the best shooting, passing, and dribbling skills.

Lozano is an excellent option to fill the right side of the midfield. Chiesa is even better on the opposite side, leaving Rafael Leão out of the starting eleven.

In the attack, Immobile and Lautaro are better than Lukaku, but you may have a different opinion based on your play style and preferences.

We used this formation not because we think it’s the best for this league but because it’s the default formation we use in all our league guides. Formations that won’t feature the CM position have the downside of not giving the chance to include one of the best players: Barella.

If you use these players, you won’t need a manager on your team since he will be useless while wasting contracts.

Medium Budget Squad

The choices for this more affordable team were based on the analysis made in the position guides. If you want to understand our choices, read those guides.

On the defense, Škriniar and Cuadrado are cheap enough to remain on our squad. Kim Min Jae and Spinazzola are the best replacements for Tomori and Theo Hernández. If you are unsure about the Napoli defender, give him a try. He performs very well on the pitch. If he doesn’t convince you, replace him with Bremen.

For the center of the midfield, we have chosen Tonali. He’s strong, defends well, and is a good player to start the attacks. Just like the Milan player, Sergej Milinković-Savić has both good defensive skills but is also strong on the attack giving more freedom to Pogba.

Lozano on the right and Rafael Leão on the left are perfect for assisting Lautaro, a striker who will score many goals.

This squad was built with players whose price was under 15k coins on the release date. However, if you still have room in your budget, Tomori would significantly improve this squad.

Low Budget Squad

The choice for this team’s players was based on the analysis made in the position guides. To understand why these players were selected, please read those guides.

Once again, Rui Patrício is our choice for the goal. It won’t be because of him that you will lose. Dumfries, Gosens, Kim Min Jae, and de Roon complete the defense.

In the midfield, Piotr Zieliński and Hakan Çalhanoğlu complement each other well. Zaniolo on the right and Rebić on the left fill the wings to assist Osimhen and Deulofeu.

This squad was built with players whose price was under 1k coins on the release date. There is room for improvement, but you will need to save some coins. If you still have some space in your budget, Handanovic, Bastoni, Di María, and Muriel are players who would improve this squad a lot.

If you use these players, you won’t need a manager on your team since he will be useless while wasting contracts.
