Introduction to the FUT 15 Liga BBVA Guide


Building a team is the biggest challenge on FIFA 15 Ultimate Team. It doesn’t need to be the best team, because your budget may not allow it, but it is player’s stature that helps him 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 15. 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 you check to see if the player you choose fits the formations you like to play in. For example, a good full back will be useless if you only use a formation with three defenders. According to these formations, you 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. The most popular leagues are the Brazilian league and the Barclays Premier 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 15 Ultimate Team based on players from the Liga BBVA. Even the players that have a La Liga team, could take out some valuable conclusions from this guide that could help them make their 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 15 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 the criteria we chose and should be of everyone’s knowledge:

  • Only Gold Players
    • In this guide we didn’t consider silver or bronze players. 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 categories.
  • 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 Liga BBVA 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).
  • Prices at the date of publication of the guide
    • In the chapter where FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Liga BBVA teams are suggested, the prices considered are the ones of the date of the guide’s publication: November 2014. It’s natural that the prices have suffered some peaks and troughs throughout the season, so they should only be considered as guiding prices.



    Liga BBVA


    Arguably no league has as good players as the main football competition in Spain. The qualification for the champion is made through the points system. Whichever team gathers the most points wins the league. The first four classified gain access to the champions league in the following year, while the fifth and sixth qualify for the Europa League and the last three trade places with the first two promoted from the Segunda División and with the play-off winner. Every season starts in August and finishes in May, having 38 game weeks with 10 matches each, being a total of 380 matches per season.

    The Liga BBVA is the third most watched football league in the world and the best league classified in the UEFA league coefficients.

    Started in 1928, La Liga has only been conquered by nine clubs. The dominant clubs are Real Madrid and Barcelona, with a total of 33 and 23 titles. However, it was Atlético de Madrid (10) that won the the title last season. Atlético de Bilbao (8), Valência (6) and Real Sociedad (2) were the other teams that have won the league more than once, while Deportivo la Coruna, Real Bétis and Sevilla only won the title once.

    As of last season, the Liga BBVA lost some good players such as Ander Herrera (Manchester United), Filipe Luis, Fábregas, Thibaut Courtois and Diego Costa (Chelsea), David Villa (New York City FC), Alex Song (West Ham), Alexis Sánchez (Arsenal), Xabi Alonso (Bayern FC), Puyol (retired), Valdés, Guardado (PSV), Diego López and Adil Rami (AC Milan), Bojan (Stoke City), Morata (Juventus), Tello, Arián and Brahimi (FC Porto), Diego (Fenerbahce) and Fazio (Tottenham). But, the biggest transfers out were Angel Di Maria from European Champions Real Madrid to Manchester United for 75 million Euros.

    These transfers didn’t necessarily make the Liga BBVA weaker. The Spanish teams spent more than 400 million Euros on strong reinforcements: Cerci, Ansaldi, Oblak and Mandzukic (Atlético de Madrid), Douglas, Vermaelen and M. Ter Stegen (Barcelona), Javier Hernandez, K. Navas and Kroos (Real Madrid), Negredo, Rodrigo, André Gomes and Otamendi (Valência). But the biggest signings of the season happened in Madrid and Barcelona. James Rodriguez and Luis Suárez have joined La Liga for 160 million Euros, almost half of the all money spent by the all Liga BBVA clubs this season.

    There are many great player choices to make which will make an even better team for you to aim to build. But, since it’s the league with better players, their prices are high. Only the Barclays PL players are more expensive than these ones. To the players with a limited budget, there are other better options.

    FUT 15 Liga BBVA Goalkeepers (GK)


    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.

    The goalkeepers with most prestige in the Liga BBVA are the stalwart Iker Casillas, the new signing Marc-André ter Stegen and the Chilean National team goalkeeper Claudio Bravo. With having the best rating they are also the most searched for by this league’s teams so this makes them more expensive.


    Casillas 84 Real Madrid Spain
    Claudio Bravo 83 FC Barcelona Chile
    Marc-André ter Stegen 82 FC Barcelona Germany
    Beto 81 Sevilla FC Portugal
    Diego Alves 81 Valencia CF Brazil
    Guillermo Ochoa 80 Málaga CF Mexico
    Kiko Casilla 80 RCD Espanyol Spain
    Keylor Navas 79 Real Madrid Costa Rica
    Guaita 79 Getafe CF Spain
    Sergio Asenjo 79 Villarreal CF Spain


    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 Diego Alves and Casillas.


    Diego Alves 88 Valencia CF Brazil
    Casillas 87 Real Madrid Spain
    Claudio Bravo 85 FC Barcelona Chile
    Marc-André ter Stegen 83 FC Barcelona Germany
    Guillermo Ochoa 83 Málaga CF Mexico
    Przemysław Tytoń 83 Elche CF Poland
    Beto 82 Sevilla FC Portugal
    Kiko Casilla 82 RCD Espanyol Spain
    Sergio Asenjo 82 Villarreal CF Spain
    Keylor Navas 81 Real Madrid Costa Rica


    Diving is a fundamental attribute when choosing a goalkeeper. It measures the capacity for a goalkeeper to make a save when jumping.

    Diego Alves is also the best one with this attribute, with a slight advantage over Casillas.


    Diego Alves 88 Valencia CF Brazil
    Casillas 87 Real Madrid Spain
    Claudio Bravo 85 FC Barcelona Chile
    Marc-André ter Stegen 83 FC Barcelona Germany
    Guillermo Ochoa 83 Málaga CF Mexico
    Przemysław Tytoń 83 Elche CF Poland
    Beto 82 Sevilla FC Portugal
    Kiko Casilla 82 RCD Espanyol Spain
    Sergio Asenjo 82 Villarreal CF Spain
    Keylor Navas 81 Real Madrid Costa Rica


    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.

    This is Casilla’s weak point. Even though he can’t be considered a short goalkeeper, the truth is he’s 9 cm short of the mighty Przemysław Tytoń, this gold goalkeeper holds the title of tallest Liga BBVA Goalkeeper. None of the top goalkeepers has 1,90m or more.


    Przemysław Tytoń 194 Elche CF Poland
    Kiko Casilla 191 RCD Espanyol Spain
    Iraizoz 191 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Guaita 190 Getafe CF Spain
    Marc-André ter Stegen 189 FC Barcelona Germany
    Moyá 189 Atlético Madrid Spain
    Gerónimo Rulli 189 Real Sociedad Argentina
    Diego Alves 188 Valencia CF Brazil
    Jan Oblak 188 Atlético Madrid Slovenia


    The choice for the best Liga BBVA goalkeeper on FIFA 15 Ultimate Team is easy.

    In our opinion, even though he was downgraded again, Casillas is still the best choice. Besides being the best with one of the two most important attributes and the second best on the other, he’s also the fastest. For us, Claudio Bravo is the number two. He is the La Liga goalkeeper with highest total stats. Diego Alves is the best alternative to these players. Despite not having good positioning and decent handling, he is one of the best in the world in the two more important attributes. He is a huge bargain.

    Best FUT 15 Liga BBVA Goalkeeper



    FUT 15 La Liga Centre Backs (CB)


    A goalkeepers task is made easier if in front of him are quality centre backs. Their function is to stop the opponent from getting dangerously close to your team’s goal.


    Sergio Ramos 87 Real Madrid Spain
    Diego Godín 85 Atlético Madrid Uruguay
    Piqué 84 FC Barcelona Spain
    Diego Godín 84 Atlético Madrid Uruguay
    Miranda 84 Atlético Madrid Brazil
    Javier Mascherano 83 FC Barcelona Argentina
    Pepe 83 Real Madrid Portugal
    Miranda 83 Atlético Madrid Brazil
    Raphaël Varane 81 Real Madrid France
    Aymeric Laporte 81 Athletic Bilbao France


    With a centre back, two attributes assume particular importance on their performance: defending and the new attribute physical, which represents strength, stamina, aggression and jumping.

    A player with better defending will have an easier chance of dispossessing the opponent and avoid him reaching your box.

    It’s the case of the best rated player: Sergio Ramos. It’s really hard to get past him. The most experienced players are normally those who have a higher rating on this attribute. Piqué and Godín prove this.


    Sergio Ramos 87 Real Madrid Spain
    Piqué 86 FC Barcelona Spain
    Diego Godín 86 Atlético Madrid Uruguay
    Javier Mascherano 84 FC Barcelona Argentina
    Nicolás Otamendi 84 Valencia CF Argentina
    Pepe 84 Real Madrid Portugal
    Miranda 84 Atlético Madrid Brazil
    Raphaël Varane 83 Real Madrid France
    Aymeric Laporte 83 Athletic Bilbao France
    Iñigo Martínez 82 Real Sociedad Spain


    The new 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 Pepe, Sergio Ramos and Mikel Gonzalez are the strongest ones.


    Pepe 83 Real Madrid Portugal
    Sergio Ramos 82 Real Madrid Spain
    Mikel Gonzalez 82 Real Sociedad Spain
    Jérémy Mathieu 81 FC Barcelona France
    Gurpegi 81 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Javier Mascherano 80 FC Barcelona Argentina
    Aymeric Laporte 80 Athletic Bilbao France
    Iñigo Martínez 80 Real Sociedad Spain
    Miranda 79 Atlético Madrid Brazil
    Víctor Ruíz 79 Villarreal CF Spain


    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.

    The Madrid players are the fastest in Liga BBVA and some of the fastest in the world. But there are other fast players in La Liga. Pepe and Miranda are also fast players and possess good attributes, both players are a viable option for a defence based on the Liga BBVA.


    Sergio Ramos 79 Real Madrid Spain
    Miranda 76 Atlético Madrid Brazil
    Raphaël Varane 76 Real Madrid France
    Jérémy Mathieu 76 FC Barcelona France
    Iñigo Martínez 76 Real Sociedad Spain
    Pepe 73 Real Madrid Portugal
    Thomas Vermaelen 71 FC Barcelona Belgium
    Marc Bartra 70 FC Barcelona Spain
    Javier Mascherano 69 FC Barcelona Argentina
    Mateo Musacchio 69 Villarreal CF Argentina


    Sergio Ramos is our number one choice for this position. Fast and with good defending and attacking attributes, the Madrid’ defender is for that the without a chance most expensive of all central backs of the Liga BBVA. He is the better in 3 of 6 main attributes.

    Pepe and Miranda are without a doubt good players for this position but there are other cheaper solutions. Like, Jérémy Mathieu. He has the second best total points score.

    Best FUT 15 Liga BBVA Centre Backs



    FUT 15 Liga BBVA Right Backs (RB and 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.

    For all players with a good budget, to choose the best right back is something very simple. Dani Alves is by far the best one.


    Dani Alves 83 FC Barcelona Brazil
    Iraola 80 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Juanfran 79 Atlético Madrid Spain
    João Pereira 79 Valencia CF Portugal
    Carvajal 79 Real Madrid Spain
    Arbeloa 79 Real Madrid Spain
    Jesús Gámez 78 Atlético Madrid Spain
    De Marcos 78 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Coke 78 Sevilla FC Spain
    Montoya 77 FC Barcelona Spain


    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 our opinion, Dani Alves is the best right back of Liga BBVA but there are four Spanish players who defend better than him.


    Iraola 79 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Arbeloa 79 Real Madrid Spain
    Jesús Gámez 78 Atlético Madrid Spain
    Carlos Martínez 78 Real Sociedad Spain
    Dani Alves 76 FC Barcelona Brazil
    Juanfran 76 Atlético Madrid Spain
    Carvajal 76 Real Madrid Spain
    Coke 76 Sevilla FC Spain
    João Pereira 75 Valencia CF Portugal
    Allan-Roméo Nyom 75 Granada CF Cameroon


    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.

    De Marcos has changed his position to be the fastest FUT 15 right back playing in La Liga. Dani Alves, his team mate Montoya and the Portuguese João Pereira are the only ones that may also be considered fast players.


    De Marcos 90 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Montoya 88 FC Barcelona Spain
    Dani Alves 86 FC Barcelona Brazil
    João Pereira 85 Valencia CF Portugal
    Juanfran 83 Atlético Madrid Spain
    Carvajal 83 Real Madrid Spain
    Allan-Roméo Nyom 80 Granada CF Cameroon
    Iraola 79 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Hugo Mallo 79 Celta Vigo Spain
    Coke 78 Sevilla FC Spain


    Dani Alves is undoubtedly the best right back playing on Liga BBVA. He is one of the fastest right backs and has the best shooting, passing and dribbling. His weakest point is his work rate high/low. He is the only right back with a low defensive work rate. For many gamers, he is too attacking.

    If you don’t have enough coins to buy him, choose De Marcos. He has poor defensive stats but he is really fast and strong, which may be important too. If you are looking for someone with better defensive skills, you can try João Pereira, Juanfran or Carajal.

    Best FUT 15 Liga BBVA Right Backs



    Best FUT 15 Liga BBVA Left Backs (LB e 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.

    A team’s left flank has even less options than the right but that doesn’t necessarily mean it has less quality. There are two players that stand out in this position: Marcelo and Jordi Alba.


    Marcelo 82 Real Madrid Brazil
    Jordi Alba 81 FC Barcelona Spain
    Fábio Coentrão 79 Real Madrid Portugal
    Benoît Trémoulinas 77 Sevilla FC France
    Siqueira 77 Atlético Madrid Brazil
    Emiliano Insua 77 Rayo Vallecano Argentina
    Balenziaga 77 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Cristian Ansaldi 77 Atlético Madrid Argentina
    Antunes 76 Málaga CF Portugal
    Fernando Navarro 76 Sevilla FC Spain


    Now that Filipe Luis has moved, Alba, Insua and Navarro are the three left backs with better defensive skills.


    Jordi Alba 78 FC Barcelona Spain
    Emiliano Insua 78 Rayo Vallecano Argentina
    Fernando Navarro 78 Sevilla FC Spain
    Marcelo 77 Real Madrid Brazil
    Cristian Ansaldi 75 Atlético Madrid Argentina
    Fábio Coentrão 75 Real Madrid Portugal
    Siqueira 74 Atlético Madrid Brazil
    Balenziaga 74 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Antunes 73 Málaga CF Portugal
    Benoît Trémoulinas 73 Sevilla FC France


    Jordi Alba is the fastest left back in the world. He makes his speed his biggest threat, differing from other players from this position. All of them are a lot slower.


    Jordi Alba 92 FC Barcelona Spain
    Cristian Ansaldi 84 Atlético Madrid Argentina
    Antunes 84 Málaga CF Portugal
    Benoît Trémoulinas 84 Sevilla FC France
    Marcelo 81 Real Madrid Brazil
    Fábio Coentrão 80 Real Madrid Portugal
    Emiliano Insua 78 Rayo Vallecano Argentina
    Siqueira 78 Atlético Madrid Brazil
    Balenziaga 78 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    De la Bella 77 Real Sociedad Spain


    To choose the best Left Back from Liga BBVA is a hard task. Marcelo is slightly better than Alba in almost every stat, but the pace of the Spanish player can make the difference many times. Especially in FIFA 15. What he lacks in these attributes he highly compensates with his pace. That’s the main reason why we consider him the best Liga BBVA left back.

    Of all the remaining players, Fábio Coentrão is probably the most interesting one. However, Cristian Ansaldi is our cheapest choice. He doesn’t have the same efficiency as the others we referred too but he’s fast enough to cause some offensive damage and possesses decent skills.

    Best FUT 15 Liga BBVA Central Defensive Midfielder (CDM)


    Many of the FIFA 15 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.

    The supremacy of Busquets and Khedira over all other Liga BBVA central defensive midfielders is extremely clear.


    Sergio Busquets 85 FC Barcelona Spain
    Sami Khedira 84 Real Madrid Germany
    Iturraspe 80 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Grzegorz Krychowiak 79 Sevilla FC Poland
    Iborra 79 Sevilla FC Spain
    Manuel Iturra 78 Granada CF Chile
    Javi Fuego 78 Valencia CF Spain
    Camacho 78 Málaga CF Spain
    José Cañas 77 RCD Espanyol Spain
    Markel Bergara 77 Real Sociedad Spain
    Mohamed Sissoko 76 Levante UD Mali
    Daniel Carriço 76 Sevilla FC Portugal
    Papa Kouli Diop 76 Levante UD Senegal
    Fausto Rossi 75 Córdoba CF Italy


    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.

    The CDM with best defending stats is Khedira. Besides that, he is also one of the players that have better heading so he is a really good choice for teams that want to complicate an opponent’s game in the space between the midfield and the defence.


    Sami Khedira 83 Real Madrid Germany
    Sergio Busquets 81 FC Barcelona Spain
    Grzegorz Krychowiak 80 Sevilla FC Poland
    Daniel Carriço 79 Sevilla FC Portugal
    Iborra 78 Sevilla FC Spain
    Camacho 76 Málaga CF Spain
    Iturraspe 75 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    José Cañas 75 RCD Espanyol Spain
    Papa Kouli Diop 74 Levante UD Senegal
    Javi Fuego 74 Valencia CF Spain
    Markel Bergara 74 Real Sociedad Spain
    Manuel Iturra 74 Granada CF Chile
    Mohamed Sissoko 71 Levante UD Mali
    Fausto Rossi 69 Córdoba CF Italy


    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.

    There’s a lot of muscle between the central defensive midfielders of Liga BBVA. Once again, Khedira is the one that stands out. Only Grzegorz Krychowiak has better physical than him. On the other hand there’s Fausto Rossi. The Italian player rarely wins a physical brawl due to being the weakest central defensive midfielder from the main Spanish League.


    Grzegorz Krychowiak 87 Sevilla FC Poland
    Sami Khedira 86 Real Madrid Germany
    Mohamed Sissoko 84 Levante UD Mali
    Iborra 83 Sevilla FC Spain
    Papa Kouli Diop 82 Levante UD Senegal
    Daniel Carriço 81 Sevilla FC Portugal
    Camacho 81 Málaga CF Spain
    Javi Fuego 81 Valencia CF Spain
    Sergio Busquets 80 FC Barcelona Spain
    Markel Bergara 78 Real Sociedad Spain
    Iturraspe 77 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    José Cañas 74 RCD Espanyol Spain
    Manuel Iturra 74 Granada CF Chile
    Fausto Rossi 62 Córdoba CF Italy


    The two players with best ratings are the ones that can make this job with success. No other player can guarantee quality on the field.

    Khedira is our favourite. He is strong, aggressive and he offers much more defensive security. He has better work rates for that. He is the best central defensive midfielder in the most important attributes. Busquets is more tactical, better on the ball and play better in the opposite midfield.

    For those who want an element that offer defensive solidity to the team for a low price, Grzegorz Krychowiak is a very interesting choice. He is our economic choice.

    Best FUT 15 Liga BBVA Centre Midfielders (CM e 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.

    There is many quality in the Liga BBVA midfield. Some of the world’s best footballers play there. It’s the case of Xavi, Iniesta, Modric and James Rodriguez.


    Iniesta 89 FC Barcelona Spain
    Luka Modrić 87 Real Madrid Croatia
    James Rodríguez 86 Real Madrid Colombia
    Xavi 86 FC Barcelona Spain
    Toni Kroos 85 Real Madrid Germany
    Ivan Rakitić 83 FC Barcelona Croatia
    Isco 83 Real Madrid Spain
    Gabi 82 Atlético Madrid Spain
    Parejo 80 Valencia CF Spain
    Beñat 80 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Tiago 80 Atlético Madrid Portugal
    Éver Banega 80 Sevilla FC Argentina
    Mario Suárez 79 Atlético Madrid Spain
    Bruno 79 Villarreal CF Spain
    Xabi Prieto 79 Real Sociedad Spain


    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 Kroos and Iniesta have a great passing stat, Xavi is the one who does it better in whole world. In all leagues, only Pirlo may be compared with these three players in this attribute.


    Xavi 91 FC Barcelona Spain
    Iniesta 89 FC Barcelona Spain
    Toni Kroos 89 Real Madrid Germany
    Ivan Rakitić 87 FC Barcelona Croatia
    Parejo 86 Valencia CF Spain
    Luka Modrić 85 Real Madrid Croatia
    James Rodríguez 84 Real Madrid Colombia
    Trashorras 84 Rayo Vallecano Spain
    Éver Banega 83 Sevilla FC Argentina
    Beñat 83 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Isco 82 Real Madrid Spain
    Xabi Prieto 82 Real Sociedad Spain
    Granero 82 Real Sociedad Spain
    Illarramendi 80 Real Madrid Spain
    Gabi 80 Atlético Madrid Spain


    La Liga players supremacy is also showed through their dribbling. Iniesta and Modric are the two of the best dribblers in the world.


    Iniesta 91 FC Barcelona Spain
    Luka Modrić 89 Real Madrid Croatia
    Isco 86 Real Madrid Spain
    Xavi 85 FC Barcelona Spain
    James Rodríguez 85 Real Madrid Colombia
    Toni Kroos 84 Real Madrid Germany
    Éver Banega 82 Sevilla FC Argentina
    Rafinha 82 FC Barcelona Brazil
    Ivan Rakitić 81 FC Barcelona Croatia
    Sergio Canales 80 Real Sociedad Spain
    Jonas 80 Valencia CF Brazil
    Víctor Rodríguez 80 Elche CF Spain
    Parejo 78 Valencia CF Spain
    Xabi Prieto 78 Real Sociedad Spain
    Bueno 78 Rayo Vallecano Spain


    Iniesta and Xavi are the two best players in the attributes that we consider most important in this position. However, our preferences goes to James Rodriguez and Modric. They are much more balanced midfielders. James is one of the fastest players and with better shooting while the Croatian is a box to box player. Kroos is too slow for this game.

    Rakitic and Isco are cheaper players that can perform well their roles as centre midfielders.

    Our cheapest choice falls to Éver Banega.

    Best FUT 15 Liga BBVA Right Wingers (RM, RW e RF)


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

    The right side of the midfield was in earlier seasons one of the strongest points of Liga BBVA based teams. The move of Di Maria and Alexis Sánchez to the BPL have weakened this position. However, the passage of Gareth Bale from center to right side, came as a solution to this problem.


    Gareth Bale 87 Real Madrid Wales
    Carlos Vela 82 Real Sociedad Mexico
    Sofiane Feghouli 81 Valencia CF Algeria
    Susaeta 80 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Pedro León 79 Getafe CF Spain
    Raúl García 79 Atlético Madrid Spain
    Deulofeu 79 Sevilla FC Spain
    Reyes 77 Sevilla FC Spain
    Piti 77 Granada CF Spain
    Lassane Bangoura 77 Rayo Vallecano Guinea


    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 Liga BBVA is extremely well served in this chapter. Four gold players have pace over 90, being the highlighted Gareth Bale.


    Gareth Bale 94 Real Madrid Wales
    Deulofeu 91 Sevilla FC Spain
    Lassane Bangoura 91 Rayo Vallecano Guinea
    Aleix 91 Sevilla FC Spain
    Carlos Vela 86 Real Sociedad Mexico
    Susaeta 85 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Sofiane Feghouli 85 Valencia CF Algeria
    Nabil El Zhar 81 Levante UD Morocco
    Pedro León 75 Getafe CF Spain
    Portillo 75 Málaga CF Spain


    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 Deulofeu and Sofiane Feghouli the best.


    Sofiane Feghouli 86 Valencia CF Algeria
    Deulofeu 86 Sevilla FC Spain
    Carlos Vela 85 Real Sociedad Mexico
    Gareth Bale 84 Real Madrid Wales
    Lassane Bangoura 83 Rayo Vallecano Guinea
    Reyes 81 Sevilla FC Spain
    Nabil El Zhar 81 Levante UD Morocco
    Susaeta 80 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Piti 79 Granada CF Spain
    Portillo 79 Málaga CF Spain


    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 Gareth Bale and Pedro Léon offer good quality passing. Aleix and Lassane Bangoura, for example, could’ve been an option to consider filling this slot in virtue of their fantastic pace, but they are affected negatively for missing frequently passes to their more forward team mates.


    Pedro León 84 Getafe CF Spain
    Gareth Bale 83 Real Madrid Wales
    Raúl García 80 Atlético Madrid Spain
    Susaeta 79 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Reyes 78 Sevilla FC Spain
    Sofiane Feghouli 75 Valencia CF Algeria
    Carlos Vela 74 Real Sociedad Mexico
    Piti 74 Granada CF Spain
    Portillo 74 Málaga CF Spain
    Nabil El Zhar 70 Levante UD Morocco


    Gareth Bale is clearly the most indicated players to occupy this position in a team without budget restraints. He is the one with better pace, shooting and physical. is the third name in our list.

    For those that can’t pay so many coins, Carlos Vela may be an option. However, Sofiane Feghouli is much cheaper and almost as good as the Mexican player. That’s why he is our economic choice.

    Best FUT 15 Liga BBVA Right Wingers



    Liga BBVA Left Wingers (LM, LW e LF)


    The left wingers have exactly the same role as their team mates from the other side.

    Cristiano Ronaldo is clearly the best player for this position. Not only in the Liga BBVA, but in the whole world. Not even the change of Neymar to the left side of the field, brought less visibility to the Portuguese supremacy.


    Cristiano Ronaldo 92 Real Madrid Portugal
    Neymar 86 FC Barcelona Brazil
    Arda Turan 84 Atlético Madrid Turkey
    Pedro 83 FC Barcelona Spain
    Koke 82 Atlético Madrid Spain
    Antoine Griezmann 82 Atlético Madrid France
    Muniaín 80 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Cristian Rodríguez 79 Atlético Madrid Uruguay
    Ibai Gómez 79 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Pablo Piatti 78 Valencia CF Argentina


    Even though they’re fast, Nordin Amrabat and Neymar are far away from Ronaldo, the fastest gold left winger of the world.


    Cristiano Ronaldo 93 Real Madrid Portugal
    Neymar 90 FC Barcelona Brazil
    Nordin Amrabat 88 Málaga CF Morocco
    Muniaín 87 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Jesé Rodríguez 87 Real Madrid Spain
    Pablo Piatti 87 Valencia CF Argentina
    Montañés 86 RCD Espanyol Spain
    Antoine Griezmann 85 Atlético Madrid France
    Pedro 84 FC Barcelona Spain
    Ibai Gómez 82 Athletic Bilbao Spain


    Ronaldo and Neymar are clearly the most highlighted left wingers in this chapter. In the world, only Ribéry and Hazard have as good dribbling skills as these two BBVA players. Turan and Pedro have good dribbling too.


    Neymar 92 FC Barcelona Brazil
    Cristiano Ronaldo 91 Real Madrid Portugal
    Arda Turan 86 Atlético Madrid Turkey
    Muniaín 85 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Pedro 84 FC Barcelona Spain
    Jesé Rodríguez 83 Real Madrid Spain
    Antoine Griezmann 83 Atlético Madrid France
    Ibai Gómez 83 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Diego Castro 82 Getafe CF Spain
    Nolito 82 Celta Vigo Spain


    Koke is clearly the best fitted passer between the remaining left wingers. His team mate Ardan Turan is also better on passing than the super player Cristiano Ronaldo.


    Koke 85 Atlético Madrid Spain
    Arda Turan 83 Atlético Madrid Turkey
    Cristiano Ronaldo 81 Real Madrid Portugal
    Andreas Ivanschitz 79 Levante UD Austria
    Pedro 78 FC Barcelona Spain
    Cristian Rodríguez 78 Atlético Madrid Uruguay
    Antoine Griezmann 76 Atlético Madrid France
    Vitolo 76 Sevilla FC Spain
    Nolito 74 Celta Vigo Spain
    Pablo Piatti 73 Valencia CF Argentina


    Ronaldo is the most expensive player in the game. His price prohibits him from lots of budgets, proving the worth of the player. He’s without a doubt the best Liga BBVA left winger and, for many people, the best player in the world. Among all the Liga BBVA left wingers, he is the one with better pace and shooting. But there is more: he has the best shooting of the game and he is one of the few that can perform any skill.

    For those that don’t want to pay as many coins for the captain of Portuguese National Team, the alternative is Neymar. The Brazilian is also very expensive.

    Turan, Griezmann and Pedro are decent players by a much more fair price. Turan, the cheapest of the three, is almost as good as the others and for that reason our economic choice. He is really great on passing and dribbling but a bit slow, so be sure to apply him a chemistry style to boost the pace.

    Best FUT 15 Liga BBVA Left Wingers



    Liga BBVA Forwards (CF and ST)


    The forwards are the players on which fall the most responsibility of scoring goals.

    Two of the three most expensive FUT 15 players are forwards that play on Liga BBVA, which shows very well the high quality for this position. The three times Golden Boot winner Lionel Messi is the player with the highest rating in the whole game.


    Lionel Messi 93 FC Barcelona Argentina
    Luis Suárez 89 FC Barcelona Uruguay
    Karim Benzema 85 Real Madrid France
    Negredo 83 Valencia CF Spain
    Mario Mandžukić 83 Atlético Madrid Croatia
    Javier Hernández 81 Real Madrid Mexico
    Giovani dos Santos 81 Villarreal CF Mexico
    Carlos Bacca 81 Sevilla FC Colombia
    Rodrigo 80 Valencia CF Spain
    Alessio Cerci 80 Atlético Madrid Italy
    Aduriz 80 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Kévin Gameiro 79 Sevilla FC France
    Ikechukwu Uche 78 Villarreal CF Nigeria
    Agirretxe 77 Real Sociedad Spain
    Roque Santa Cruz 76 Málaga CF Paraguay


    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.

    Lionel Messi and Luis Suárez are the BBVA forwards with better shooting. This means the best forwards are the ones that are best at shooting.


    Lionel Messi 89 FC Barcelona Argentina
    Luis Suárez 87 FC Barcelona Uruguay
    Karim Benzema 84 Real Madrid France
    Negredo 83 Valencia CF Spain
    Mario Mandžukić 82 Atlético Madrid Croatia
    Javier Hernández 80 Real Madrid Mexico
    Giovani dos Santos 81 Villarreal CF Mexico
    Carlos Bacca 82 Sevilla FC Colombia
    Rodrigo 80 Valencia CF Spain
    Alessio Cerci 78 Atlético Madrid Italy
    Aduriz 81 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Kévin Gameiro 79 Sevilla FC France
    Ikechukwu Uche 78 Villarreal CF Nigeria
    Agirretxe 75 Real Sociedad Spain
    Roque Santa Cruz 74 Málaga CF Paraguay


    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.

    That’s here where we see that Manzukic is a great player. Lionel Messi and Javier Hérnandez, for example, are in the bottom of this list.


    Mario Mandžukić 87 Atlético Madrid Croatia
    Felipe Caicedo 84 RCD Espanyol Ecuador
    Nabil Ghilas 82 Córdoba CF Algeria
    Negredo 82 Valencia CF Spain
    Luis Suárez 79 FC Barcelona Uruguay
    Aduriz 78 Athletic Bilbao Spain
    Roque Santa Cruz 76 Málaga CF Paraguay
    Karim Benzema 74 Real Madrid France
    Alessio Cerci 74 Atlético Madrid Italy
    Agirretxe 74 Real Sociedad Spain
    Hélder Postiga 74 RC Deportivo Portugal
    Ikechukwu Uche 74 Villarreal CF Nigeria
    Rodrigo 71 Valencia CF Spain
    Charles 70 Celta Vigo Brazil
    Raul Rusescu 69 Sevilla FC Romania


    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.

    Cerci and Rodrigo have brought more speed to the Liga BBVA forwards. Messi has now competition on this chapter. In the whole game, the only striker faster than him is Oduro.


    Lionel Messi 93 FC Barcelona Argentina
    Alessio Cerci 87 Atlético Madrid Italy
    Giovani dos Santos 86 Villarreal CF Mexico
    Rodrigo 86 Valencia CF Spain
    Javier Hernández 86 Real Madrid Mexico
    Ikechukwu Uche 86 Villarreal CF Nigeria
    Karim Benzema 84 Real Madrid France
    Luis Suárez 83 FC Barcelona Uruguay
    Iago Aspas 82 Sevilla FC Spain
    Carlos Bacca 81 Sevilla FC Colombia
    Kévin Gameiro 80 Sevilla FC France
    Manu Del Moral 79 SD Eibar Spain
    Mario Mandžukić 75 Atlético Madrid Croatia
    Nabil Ghilas 75 Córdoba CF Algeria
    Negredo 74 Valencia CF Spain


    Gareth Bale and Neymar have moved to other positions but the attack of Liga BBVA is still very strong.

    Messi is the best Liga BBVA forward, without any discussion. However, he is extremely expensive forcing many players to choose another forward. If you have a good budget, Luis Suárez is the perfect alternative. He has the best average between the three most important attributes we considered. Even better than Messi.

    Benzema is our third choice. He is far from the quality of Messi and Luis Suárez but he is much better than any other forward playing in the main football league of Spain.

    Far from these strikers quality, Rodrigo is our cheapest choice.

    Liga BBVA Team 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 50k budget and 4-4-2 with a 10k budget.

        PC: 16,278 million coins (15429k + 849k)


    • Summary
    • The choice for this team’s players was based on analysis made in the previous chapters.

      Iker Casillas has been downgraded but he is still the best Liga BBVA goalkeeper.

      Sergio Ramos keeps on being the boss of the defensive foursome for all and a few more reasons. His weakest point is his attacking work rate and that’s why someone more defensive should play next to him. That’s the case of Pepe, who is better than Miranda not only in this point but also in his amazing physical stat. On the right side, Dani Alves does not have any competition. However, it is important to keep in mind that the Brazilian player looks more an attacker than a defender. If you are looking for someone with better defending work rate, you should try another right back. In the left side, it’s difficult to choose between Alba and Marcelo. To us, what makes the difference is the great Alba’s pace, something so important in FIFA 15.

      In Liga BBVA, there is no one as good to keep the defence well protected as Khedira. Not even Busquets. For the next position, James Rodriguez is the most balanced player. The FIFA 15 game play style is better to him and Modric, than to Iniesta and Xavi.

      On the wings, the team have two of the best players of the game: Gareth Bale and Ronaldo. In the right side no one can be compared with the ex-Spurs player. In the left side, it is a waste to leave a player like Neymar out of this team. However, since there isn’t many people that can afford Ronaldo, the most likely is to be the Portuguese to stay out of the team.

      If your budget allows you, of course, Messi and Luis Suárez are the obvious choices for the attack line. They are the players who score more goals per game. For lower budgets, Benzema is a interesting player.

      Once all the players reach maximum individual chemistry you can go without a manager for your squad. They’ll be of no use and still spend contracts.

        PC: 69.1k coins (49.6k + 16.5k)


    • Summary
    • The choice for this team’s players was based on analysis made in the previous chapters.

      Claudio Bravo is the number two in the best La Liga goalkeepers list. Ter Stegen, that is making his début in Liga BBVA does not reach the level of the Chilean goalkeeper not even of Diego Alves, who stands out for having the most important attributes much developed.

      Pepe and Miranda complement each other very well in a fast and strong defence. De Marcos shows his amazing pace in the right side, while Fábio Coentrão replaces reasonably well Alba and Marcelo in the opposite side.

      The central midfield position has to be Khedira’s. The German builds up the first barrier between your goal line and the opponent, making his defensiveness and physicality count. Rakitic and Isco, which still have maximum individual chemistry even playing as CM, complete the midfield.

      While Velas beats the concurrence on the right wing, Griezmann or Pedro could equally fill with quality the opposite side.

      Over the attack line, Rodrigo and Ceri are excellent choices. They’re very similar. The Italian may have better stats but not for a striker. His work rates is also worse.

      If you still have some room in your budget, Casillas, Alba, Modric and Benzema are players that would improve this squad a lot.

        PC: 14.5k coins (8.4k + 6.1k)


    • Summary
    • The choice for this team’s players was based on analysis made in the previous chapters.

      Diego Alves is one of the most expensive players in this squad but he’s most likely to be seen as an investment of certain return.

      Iñigo Martínez is probably the ‘bets value for money’ you will ever find in Liga BBVA. He is slightly worse than Pepe and Miranda but his price is several times lower. That’s what happen with Ansaldi too: because he is not a rare card, he is strongly undervalued. However his performance remains the same. João Pereira and Vermaelen are the two other defenders.

      On the midfield, Krychowiak and Éver Banega complete each other well. The first one is a defensive midfielder, and the second is an experienced player that’s usually more advanced and is used to assisting his colleagues. Turan and Feghouli, another player that it is very cheap, fill the wings in order to assist Carlos Bacca and Ikechukwu Uche.

    11. hello Rodrigo
      Now Danilo has gone to Real Madrid which would be both more good players for the right side in terms of regular and alternate, Dani Alves, frames or Danilo?

    12. i’m playing just 3 defenders at the back( i hav ramos pepe and pique)(3-4-2-1)
      pepe ramos pique

      pedro iniesta rodriguez vela

      neymar benzema bale

      also is ramos good at centre or should i shift him

      and also any other suggestions?

    13. I really like your blog. I really appreciate your efforts in trying to making it as good as possible.
      I’m a new Fifa player and I’m just wondering – how can I afford Messi or ronaldo ?
      Since I’m new I’ve only bought busqets,xavi,mascherano,pique and David Silva. How will I manage to bug good players like bale and Suarez ?

      1. It is not easy. You need to play to learn yourself how to do it. But Messi and Ronaldo are two players very hard to buy in the first year of FUT.
        In our opinion, the best way to get enough coins to buy them is with tading.

    14. how would you rate bravo IF over alves IF stats wise bravo seem s much more balanced however going back down to 6ft could be and issue.

      alves always seems to fumble easy shoots for them to score from an open goal!

    15. Hi, I would like to share my squad:
      GK: Ter Stegen
      LB: Coentrao
      CBs: Piqué, Miranda
      RB: De Marcos
      CDM: Toni Kroos
      LM: Jesé Rodríguez
      CAM: James Rodríguez
      RM: Deulofeu
      STs: Benzema, Griezmann
      Coach: Pochettino with BBVA license
      What do you thinks, boys?

    16. Thanks for the reply. If I’d use Ramos 3 out of 4 defenders would have a high attacking workrate, which seems a little vulnerable to me. Would you recommend a more defensive Rb when using Ramos?

      I likely will try Miranda, however I am curious about your opinion regarding Mascherano and possibly Juanfran. Yes, I do like those green links and proper workrates.

      1. Yes, if this a problem to you, don’t choose Dani Alves. All the other RB have more suitable WR.
        Both are good. But there are other better choices like you can see in our guide.

    17. Hi,

      I am using the following players for my Liga BBVA team in a 4-1-2-1-2 (2) formation;

      Gk Casillas (Bravo)
      Lb Marcelo (Alba)
      Cbl Pepe
      Cbr Mascherano
      Rb Alves (De Marcos)
      Cdm Khedira (Krychowiak)
      Cml Modric (Kroos)
      Cmr Iniesta
      Cam Rodriguez (Rakitic)
      Stl Benzema (Uche)
      Str Rodrigo

      My most doubts are for my Cbr and Rb. I’d consider players like Miranda, Godin and/or Juanfran. Further I am not sure whether or not I should fit in Xavi somewhere in my team.

      Feedback would be highly appreciated!

    18. Hello rodrigo
      Fire with a 4-1-2-1-2 formation.
      For the forward position I have
      First team:
      ST: Benzema
      ST: Giovani dos santos
      Replacements Resevas:
      ST: Rodrigo
      It was among Cerci or Mandzukic.
      What would be the best of both ?, or some better segerencia for front ?
      Even I do not have enough coins to Luis suarez.

    19. My team comment wath I need to upgrade pls

      ter stegen




      Just to said pls give option for the left defensemen pls 2 k max

      Thank You

    20. Hello rodrigo
      I have the following equipment and 400000 coins. I wanted next, recommend signings, according to guide me be wanting to be achievable, because Christian and messi are prohibitive. Bale, Luis Suarez and Neymar, what would be the order of purchases to get the maximum gradually ?.

      First Team

      GK: Casillas
      RB: Dani Alves
      CBR: Pepe
      CBL: Sergio Ramos
      LB: Jordi Alba
      CMR: James Rodriguez
      CMC: Sami Khedira
      CML: Modric
      RW: Carlos Vela UP
      LW: Antoine Griezmann UP
      ST: Benzema

      Substitutes and reservations:
      GK: Claudio Bravo
      RB: De Marcos
      CBR: Varane
      CBL: Miranda
      LB: Marcelo
      CMR: Xavi, Isco UP
      CMC: Busquets
      LMC: Iniesta
      RW: Feghouli
      LW: Pedro
      ST: Giovani dos santos

      As midfielders wanted to know if it’s better or Rakitic Iniesta and Xavi and isco UP I say to choose the better alternate for Modric and James Rodriguez that according to the guide are the best holders no ?.

      A greeting and thanks.

        1. hello
          My background is a 4-3-3.
          I want to buy one of these three coming so idk if’d better save for gareth bale or Luis Suarez or buy neymar (86) which is cheaper and you could buy now, inluso saving a little more could have neymar UP.

          As for midfielders an alternative to isco up as this has some work indexes H / L and in some cases it is better to someone with more defensive index. Between Xavi and Rakitic, Which is better ?.

    21. Hi Rodrigo, for CB I have Sergio Ramos, IF Otamendi, Varane and Pepe. In a pack now I got SIF Godin, which looks like a beast, but he has only 69 in pace (71 sprint speed though). You think I should keep him or sell him? If I keep him, which of my CB should I sell? The think I like of Godin is his M/H, there are very few CB in La Liga with M/H which is the reason I have Pepe despite being awful with the ball in his feet.

    22. What Foramtion is best with Messi, Saurez, and Neymar ?

      Been using 4-3-3’s formations

      GK: Casillas
      LB: Marcelo
      CBs: Ramos, SIF Godin
      RB: IF Carvajal
      CM’s: SIF Rakitic, IF Kroos or (Iniesta & Modric)
      LW: Neymar
      RW: Messi
      ST: Saurez

      Any Suggestions on a better Formation ?
      Thanks for your time.

      Shawn Monk

    23. tbh I tried all the 5 leagues I think that this is just the best squad even though I haven’t spent much on it.

      GK: Tyton (So good idk why)
      LB: Jordi Alba
      CBs: Varane, Godin
      RB: Juanfran
      CDM: Khedira
      LM: Greizman
      RM: Vela
      CAM: Isco
      STs: Benzema, Dangda

      lol idk why but I’m using Dangda…what do you think is the best replacement for him? Well he’s been scoring goals but his passing is ridiculously inaccurate and his dribble is so bad.
      I was thinking of james but i have isco…

      I feel that the passing as a whole is bad, I find it very hard to get the ball to the attackers without getting intercepted. Any suggestions?

    24. Rodrigo I know you use only normal players not IF. But only looking at the stats, which one you think is better, Casillas or IF Diego Alves?

    25. i was thinking of using some of my ligue 1 players (brought to build your affordable squad which is great btw!) to make a liga bbva ligue 1 hybrid sof far:

      gk sirigu
      lb alba/marcelo
      cb ramos/pepe
      cb silva/david luis
      rb alves/auyier
      cdm matiud/khedira
      lm neymar/pedro
      cam rodrgiuez/modric
      rm lucas/hamouma
      st benzema/ IF greizmann
      st lacazette up/cavani

      i have 8 chemistry minimum by when i gain loyalty and using a french manager with liga bbva. what do you think of 1st team and subs? thanks!

        1. Thanks I wouldn’t have a clue what to do without your site!

          you mentioned in your hybrid article that you believe subs made don’t effect either their individual or overall chemistry is that still the case?

            1. In your opinion who would you use out of casillas or sirigu?

              Attributes wise casillas is marginally better in everything except positioning and gets me better chemistry for ramos without impact silva

    26. Squad
      Gk Casillas
      Rb Dani Alves
      Cb Sergio Ramos
      Cb Sif Godin
      Lb Jordi Alba
      Cdm Enzo Perez/ khedira
      Cm Modric
      Cm Iniesta
      Cam James Rodriguez
      St Suarez
      St Sif Griezmann
      Any suggestions?

    27. No about the team as a whole. I put in brackets that he doesn’t affect the chemistry because I knew you would have said something considering it’s a spanish squad with one french player.
      Point of the question is for an opinion on the squad lol.

    28. Hello Rodrigo
      My current team at this point in time is
      NAVAS……….COSTA………..RIBERY (doesn’t affect chemistry)


      just a few opinions and thoughts would be appreciated, regards, Ben

    29. Gk casillias
      Rb alves
      Cb Ramos
      Cb mascherano
      Lb alba
      Cm busquets / kroos
      Cm James / modric
      Cm Iniesta/xavi
      Lm neymar
      Rm bale/feghouli
      St greizmann/benzema
      What do you think?
      Any changes regards

    30. Rishi Adusumilli

      Hey Rodrigo, this is my squad
      Formation: 4321 Platform:PC

      Ter Stegen (GK)

      De Marcos (RB)——Ingio Martinez (LCB)——-Miranda (RCB)——-Alberto Moreno (LB)

      Modric (RCM)——-James Rodriguez (CM)——-Isco (RCM)

      Bale (RF)—————-Pedro (LF)
      Dos Santos (ST)

      I have about 120k now, what kind of upgrades would you recommend(other than dos santos who’s scored 50 goals in 60 games for me, I’m surprised he wasn’t even considered in your report).

      Also should I make immediate defence/midfield upgrades or save for Neymar whose about 250k on the pc market

      1. Hi.
        Dos Santos is good but Benzema, for example, is even better for most of the gamers. Don’t know if it is your case or not.
        In my opinion, the first buy should be Alba and then Casillas.

    31. Hi Rodrigo what do you think about Otamendi UP? They give him a nice pace upgrade, you think he’s usable with 71 pace? 85 defending and 83 strength, he looks pretty good to me…

      1. I was just about to ask that the only thing im worried about is his work rate M/M along side ramos

    32. Hello again
      Now he has departed updates winter.
      I’ve noticed isco up and carvajal up and I doubt if they would be better than xavi or de marcos respectively.
      Which one would you choose to isco up or xavi?
      And carvajal up or de marcos ?.
      I say to sell and buy these as substitutes for modric and james rodriguez and dani alves respectively.

      A greeting and thanks.

    33. Hi Rodrigo currencies have to sign right now neymar or sergio ramos, can only sign one of the two, I have the following equipment which one I recomedarias first sign ?.
      I have the following equipment:

      First team:

      GK: Casillas
      RB: Dani Alves
      CBR: Pepe
      CBL: Miranda
      LB: Jordi Alba
      CMR: James Rodriguez
      CMC: Sami Khedira
      LMC: Modric

      LW: Pedro
      ST: Giovani dos santos

      a greeting

    34. where would you rate Torres at a st? i have benzema rodrigo and dos santos is he worth replacing either Rodrigo or dos santos?

        1. fair play, im struggling with the quality of rodrigo and dos santos they are ok but im looking to improve.

          who do you think is better IF/SIF greizmann or saurez?

          bearing in mind i cant then use griezmanns up card as lm, however i do have turan (catalyst) and pedro.


    35. Second Inform De Gea is probably the best GK I’ve played with in FUT 15. He stops almost everything. He has won me many matches. In one match he stopped 23 shots and around 5-6 shots were sure goals. I won that match 2-0.. Can you tell whether he will be upgraded on February 13th or not?

      Thank You

    36. Hey….. plz hlp
      Gk- casillas,bravo
      Rb-dani alves, carvajal
      Plz tell whome to keep and whom to sell…and lw in an area of concern for me along with gk these places i perform realy bad….. and i am plannig to buy suarez will it help… any suggestions… plz help thanks

    37. Liga BBVA Team

      I don’t like any of the RM players. Any other advice? I have ~ 700K


      GK – Bravo/Alves
      RB – Iraola/Carvajal (I know Iraola isn’t super fast, like his D and passing).
      CB- Miranda/Varane ( I have an untradable Pique but he’s too slow).
      CB- Pepe /Varane
      LB – Marclo/Tremoulinas
      CDM- Enzo Perez(transfered in)/Khedira (I also have Busquets, I like to bring in a 2nd CDM late).
      LM – Koke/Turan (I like Koke, I know he isn’t fast)
      CAM – Rodgriguez/Iniesta
      RM – Vela/Ferghuli/Susaeta/Garcia – I don’t like ANY of them.
      ST1 – Benzema
      ST2 – Negredo/Mandzukic/Rodrigo/Cerci

      I was thinking about replacing Alves with Casillas, maybe adding Sergio Ramos. Just sold Alves as I don’t like Low defensive Workrate. Never happy with Mandukic out of position.

      Maybe going for Suarez if his price drops a little bit, but was going to wait.


      1. Hi.
        Casillas is a good buy but don’t expect miracles from him.
        Sergio Ramos is a must buy. If you don’t like any of the RM, you will have to put a player out of position there, which is something we don’t recommend.
        Suarez is a bit expensive. Maybe you should go for the other improvements first.

    38. Hey Thank you Rodrigo.. Do the IF cards perform better than the NIF cards? I have SIF De Gea who stops almost every shot that comes at him but on the other hand SIF Rakitic performs the same as his NIF card. TOTY kroos plays a lot better than his Normal card

    39. I play with a BBVA hybrid
      GK-SIF DeGea(85)
      CB-Pique/SIF Godin
      CB-Sergio Ramos
      CDM-TOTY Kroos
      LCM-SIF Rakitic(85)

      I feel mandzukic plays better than Benzema ingame. I cant afford suarez so Mandzukic is the best choice for me. He has played 200matches and scored around 190goals. I use Falcao as a sub. He is great too. Can you post a BPL guide. This BBVA guide is very good

    40. Hello Rodrigo who do you think would be better in a hybrid Di Maria, Rodriguez or Yaya Toure as a CAM i personally think Toure what do you think

    41. Hi Rodrigo, which would you choose between IF Isco (85 rating) and James Rodriguez? Also for a CM between IF Rakitic (85 rating) or Iniesta?

    42. hello rodrigo
      First thanks for making this possible guide.
      I have these midfield players with these styles of chemistry, play with a 4-3-3 system.
      First team:
      CMR: James Rodriguez: engine
      CMC: Khedira: Powerful
      LMC: Modric: Maestro

      Substitutes and reservations
      CMR: Xavi: engine
      CMC: Busquets: Powerful
      LMC: Iniesta: Maestro

      I have read the guide formations posted on this site, and the most important attributes in terms of the 4-3-3 system midfielders is:
      CMR: Pace, Dribbling
      CMC: passing, defending
      LMC: Pace, Dribbling

      I have also read the guidance of consumables, and as for the CM and CAM RECOMMEND styles chemistry of Artist or Maestro.
      So what cres that would be the best styles of chemistry to apply to James rodriguez, iniesta, modric, and xavi ?, according to these data, because according to the guide formations is more important the pace and dribbling and according to the consumable is more Maestro important artist or not increase the pace.

      A greeting and thanks !!

      1. Hi Gabriel.
        We recommend to choose players with high stats and those attributes (pace, dribbling and passing, defending) and then use styles only to fine tune. The styles you apply depends of the player you choose. In your case, for example, maybe you should choose a boost in pace to Khedira because he already has good defensive stats.

        1. Hello again rodrigo.
          Then as the shot is not as important but would be interesting Style applied chemistry of motor xavi, james rodriguez, iniesta and modric ?. I made havia modric and iniesta maestro because they have worse statistics chute that rhythm, but more importantly the pace, passing and dribbling in that case it would be better to change to engine ?. For best would put shadow busquets powehouse ?.

          Thanks and regards

    43. hey there
      i dont know which league i have to choose :/ blp or bbva ?
      thanks for repost

    44. Hi !
      If someone an idea for my second center forward :


      GB Casillas
      LB Alba
      CB Ramos / Pepe
      RB Alves
      CDM Khedira
      CM Iniesta/Modric
      CAM James Rodrigues
      ST Benzema and ??? (suggestions please 🙂 )

    45. Hi,

      I’m currently running this line-up, and my question is if u would do anything different:


      GK: Casillas
      RB: Alves
      CB: Godin (86)
      CB: Ramos (94)
      LB: Alba
      CDM: Khedira
      CAM: Messi
      RM: Bale
      LM: Neymar
      ST: Suarez
      ST: Ronaldo (as LF)

      Subs that can be uses: All from la liga incl. Miranda (84)

      I’m using Ronaldo as ST as i feel i get more out of him in that pos than the LM.
      Should i actually use Ronaldo on LM and Messi as ST instead?

    46. Hi Rodrigo, i have this squad :
      4-3-3 (4)
      GK : Casillas
      LB : Alba
      CB : SIF Godin
      CB : Pique
      RB : Dani Alves
      CM : Iniesta
      CAM : SIF Isco
      CM : James Rodriguez
      LW : Neymar
      ST : Benzema
      RW : IF Feghouli

      But i’m confused right now, I have 1.9 million coins, should i get TOTY Iniesta/Kroos or Suarez, Bale and Ramos ? What do you think ?

        1. I guess you are right, i’m going to buy those 3 players then. Shiny blue cards are just tempting me.

    47. Suggestions for this team

      GK- Bravo (Casillas, ter Stegan)
      LB- Alba
      CB- Miranda (Varane, Mascherano)
      CB- Godin (Pique)
      RB- Alves
      CDM- Khedira
      CDM- Busquets (Kroos)
      LM- Neymar (Griezmann)
      CAM- Xavi (Iniesta, Rakitic)
      RM- Deulofeu (Vela)
      ST- Benzema (dos Santos, Cerci)

    48. Hey Rodrigo, is there any site that show fifa 15 prices for PC. the sites like futhead or futwiz

        1. this one looked good, but i couldn’t search for players like on futwiz is there any one you can?

    49. If I only have one fast CB in 3-4-1-2 formation, should I place him at the middle or on one side?

    50. Suggestions for this team

      GK- Bravo (Casillas, ter Stegan)
      LB- Alba
      CB- Miranda (Varane, Mascherano)
      CB- Godin (Pique)
      RB- Alves
      CDM- Khedira
      CDM- Busquets (Kroos)
      LM- Neymar (Griezmann)
      CAM- Xavi (Iniesta, Rakitic)
      RM- Deulofeu (Vela)
      ST- dos Santos (Benzema, Cerci)

      What about this team?


      Arda Turan
      Rodrigo (Mandzukic)

    52. Hi Im fairly new to FUT, I have built an ok Liga BBVA squad on a small budget so far but looking to save up to bring so top players in. could you have a look at my squad and suggest where i should improve first?

      Fromation: 4-2-1-2

      GK: ter stegen

      LB: coentrao
      CB: Godin, Pique

      LM: turan
      CAM: xavi

      ST: Mandzukic, negredo

      subs: griezmann, mascherano, fergouhli, busquets, rakitic, rukavina, radu

      remember i will either have to sell current players or save up to buy new players!

        1. who would you recommend ramos is obviously top choice but quite expensive, also who would you recommend for ST benzema?

            1. i have bought miranda and pepe! who out of godin, pique and mascherano would you suggest i sell? when the markets prices are back up after toty

    53. Hi, if you apply a shadow chemestry to Mascherano that boost his pace and defending stats you would still insist in not using him? Pepe is better than him for sure, but a guy like Miranda is better than Mascherano in heading and pace, but Mascherano is better than Miranda in so many important stats for a defender like positioning, agression, standing tackle, reactions and especially interceptions, Mascherano has a beast rating on interceptions of 92 against 81 of Miranda.

      Miranda also has really poor passing stats, for a CB is useful to have decent short passing, like Mascherano has at 78 vs 64 of Miranda. Finally you said ball control is also important in a CB and Mascherano has 82 against a poor 64 of Miranda.

      I don’t get it why so few people use Mascherano, if you learn how to use it he really is a great player you just boost his pace and then the only negative aspect of him is his heading.

      My CB’s would be Sergio Ramos and Pepe and on the bench Mascherano and Varane. Mathieu

      1. Hi.
        Chemistry Styles don’t have an effect so big as many people thinks. Even with a pace boost he is much slower than Miranda and that’s really important in FIFA 15. We don’t say that he is not a good player. We just think that Miranda is better for most of the gamers.

    54. Thanks for the article. It helped me a lot.

      I play with 4-(1-2)/3-1-2 formation. Here’s my La Liga team –

      GK: Bravo/Casillas
      LB: Alba
      CBs: Ramos, Miranda/Mathieu (Pique and Masche can be outpaced easily)
      RB: Alves
      CDM: Khedira
      CMs: Iniesta, Modric
      CAM: James Rodrigues
      STs: Suarez, Rodrigo (fastest ST after Messi in Liga)/Benz

      I prefer faster players in this game. Obviously, I don’t have enough money for Messi or Ronaldo, otherwise I would have both. How can I ever get either? Bale and Neymar don’t fit in my formation as I prefer playing from the center and occasionally from the wing (Alba and Alves are good on wing), I also play 2 STs to have an option when either one gets the final ball. And what do you think about my formation and team? Any suggestion would be appreciable. Thanks again.

    55. Rate my team! Please make suggestions!

      ST: Negardo
      LW: Turan
      RW: Thomas Muller (saving up for vela)
      CM: Khedira, kroos, Parejo (saving up for someone else)
      LB: Coentrão
      CB: Pique, mascherano
      RW: Irola
      GK: Ter stegen (saving up for casiallas


      1. Hi.
        I think you need faster CB’s. I also believe that Thomas Muller don’t have the maximum individual chemistry possible.
        You can follow the suggestions of our guide to improve your team.

    56. Alexander Holmström


      My Fut team is a La Liiga based squad with 3 Bundesliga players. I always use the 4-3-2-1 formation. This squad may sound a bit odd for most people but because of Robben’s incredible performance I’ve won the division 1 title a couple of times. I play a passive game until i get the ball and when i get it i don’t like to take it slowly. Normally i just pass, but of course not always I pass to any of my attackers and dribble past defenders straight away. If that’s not working i put in Keita Musa and Martins for pace and mostly often i score a lot of goals and win my matches. My coach is from Netherlands and his League is La Liiga. Evert player in my team got 10 Chem except the attackers, Traore 7, Robben 6 and Aubameyang 6 aswell.
      My Chemistry is 99. Since I’ve won the title i feel that my team is almost completed, however that 99 chemistry instead of 100 is really annoying, do you have any suggestions what i could do? I just want to know an opinion from a real pro! 😉

      I hope you’ll come up with different options what i might could do.
      Thanks on beforehand!

      Attackers: LF Traore, ST Robben , RF Aubameyang

      Middle fielders: CM Isco , CM Khedira, CM Kroos

      Defenders: LB Jordi Alba, CB Mathieu, CB Mirandra, RB De Marcos

      Goalkeeper: Casillas

      1. Hi.
        I will not suggest any changes because if you are winning, then it’s all what matters. Sergio Ramos, for example, seems an obvious one.
        About 99 chemistry it isn’t something you should be concerned. It is almost the same thing. Maybe you should apply a Bundesliga card to your Netherlands coach. It may be more useful than La Liga since most (or all) your La Liga players already have Individual Chemistry 10.

        1. Alexander Holmström

          Yea, you’re right, I should probably not care when I’m winning.

          Sergio Ramos you say, one of the best if not the best defender in the world, I’ll probably buy him later on when I get more money. By the way how about Mathieu. He’s one of my favorites, and since I’m often playing against high level squads Mathieu always seem to be that guy for me who can take the ball from elite attackers. When I’ll buy Sergio Ramos do you think Pepe should be his partner, Miranda or Mathieu just wanted to know your opinion what you would do and why?:) And secondly why do you prefer Varane over Mathieu, just wondering:)
          Finally i just wanted to add that this whole article was very great and I think the fact that whether you have played Ultimate team for a long time or not, everyone can pick upp something from it, however when I read about midfielders I read about Kroos and it was said;”Kroos is too slow for this game.”
          Yea he is slow but he got other stats that is incredible. Why don’t you like Kroos? For me he is a big part of my game and the absolute best when it comes to passing and corners, not to forget his shooting which is pretty solid for a midfielder.

          Kind Regards

          1. Hi.
            1) If you play with Sergio Ramos, Pepe needs to be his partner. Ramos has high attacking work rate and Mathieu too. Pepe is medium. You can not have two CB’s with high attacking work rate because you need players in your defence.
            2) Varane has medium attacking WR which is really important. Besides that he is much better in several important attributes for his position: sliding tackle, short passing, heading, jumping, ball control…
            3) BBVA has great midfielders. You have other options besides Kroos. Obviously, he will be a good player for many gamers but for most of the community there are better players for this position in this league.

    57. Omar Hernandez

      my current line is 4-2-3-2-2(2)

      do you think i need to change anything on this line up to make it better, even formation? i own busquets but he got

    58. My team 4-3-3 took me forever to build, but its worth it.
      GK: Casillas
      RB: Dani Alves
      CB: Sergio Ramos and Pique
      LB: Marcelo
      CM: Modric, Iniesta, Xavi
      RW: IF Feghouli
      ST: Suarez
      LW: Neymar Jr

    59. Just wondering how would you rate Javier Hernandez in Fifa 15 I am thinking of putting him in my hybrid

    60. Thanks for the advice just one question. Why isn’t mascherano in your top CB’s section? And what do you think of him in general. I’ve experemented with him at CDM and I kinda of like the results do you think this is a bad idea?

      1. Hi.
        He has great defensive skills but, in our opinion, he is too slow. Pace is very important in FIFA 15 and it is important to use fast defenders because your opponents will use fast forwards. He may be better in a 5xx formation and can also be used as CDM because pace is not so important in this position.

    61. Hi,
      I am currently playing with a 4-2-3-1 formation :
      GK: Casillas
      CBs: Miranda, Pepe
      LB: Alba
      RB: Alves
      CMs: Iniesta, Khedira
      CAM: Rodriguez
      LM: Griezman
      RM: Vela
      ST: Benzema

      Do you have any advise for this team? Is there a RM better than Vela? ( one there is not Bale that is too expensive). And who do you think is better for this formation as LM? Griezman, Pedro, Turan or Koke?

      1. Sebastian Rojas

        If you want a good RW you may think on Jesus Navas is spanish and better than Vela

    62. To people who likes to play in 4-3-1-2 formation like me, best possible squad in my opinion is this:

      GK: Bravo
      RB: Alves
      CB: Mascherano and Mathieu
      LB: Alba
      CM: Khedira in the center, Iniesta and Modric
      CAM: James Rodriguez
      DC: Benzema and Giovani

      For GK Casillas is better but more expensive and only slightly better than Bravo so not worth it.

      For CB if you have more coins, Sergio Ramos next to Mascherano would be ideal. Pepe is a great option aswell, but I prefer Mathieu, faster and with better passing. Miranda passing stats are too bad for me.

      Modric and Iniesta are absolute beast in the midfield.

      Rakitic as CAM is also a great choice, but his pace is a bit slow for that position.

      I tried both Giovani and Rodrigo and I can say Giovani is better, even though Rodrigo is stronger. Mandzukic is not fast but is really strong and also has a h/h work rate, so I recommend him aswell.

    63. Hi,
      I am getting 1.5 Million Coins soon and I was wondering which is a better value league, BPL or BBVA? I’d prefer using the BPL because I am English and I know all the players but if there is a big difference in price, I may go for Liga BBVA. Thanks in advance!

    64. I want to make a hybrid with bbva and either bpl or bundesliga. Which league do you think is more appropriate for this hybrid and what are the key players that i should buy?

    65. Thanks for answering, my team would be then

      Bravo, Alves, Ramos, Mascherano, Alba, Khedira (slightly better than Busquets, so I bought him) Xavi, Modric, James, Benzema and Mandzukic.

      I have Giovani on the bench but Mandzukic has scored 101 goals in 95 games with me, he’s not very fast but has good shooting and is really strong. Very rare when he loses one on one with defenders.

    66. Another question, from this five top player which is the cheapest one? Ramos, Iniesta, Neymar, Bale or Suarez?

    67. You’re right, Im trying to buy Ramos but he is really expensive. I prefer Ramos with Mascherano. Miranda is really bad in passing.

      Which one is better, Rodrigo or Giovani dos Santos? They have very similar stats.

    68. Current squad: 4-3-1-2

      GK: Bravo
      RB: Dani Alves
      CB: Godín and Piqué
      LB: Alba
      CM: Busquets, Kroos and Arda Turan
      CAM: Rakitic
      ST: Mandzukic and Benzema


    69. Giovani dos Santos is an absolute beast. Pretty much a poor man’s Messi but he is averaging a goal a game for me coming to 300 games. Plays better than Rodrigo in game.

    70. can’t wait for the january transfer period! Probably some good players will change leagues and we can improve or change our squad again.
      Great team, but I’ll stick with my BPL squad, at least it’s affordable. Prices for BBVA stars are too crazy, it’s almost impossible to build unlimited budget squad without investing “real money”.
      Between 8 and 16 million and then just regular rare cards, not even TOTY or TOTW cards…

        1. But without Messi, Ronaldo, Bale and Suarez you’re running out of good strikers or forwards very fast in the BBVA. On the other hand in the BPL even Agüero (the best striker) and Hazzard are affordable. And how about Diego Costa, Falcao, Rooney, Van Persie and Di Maria… All good players and with some trading possible to buy. All of them together are cheaper than Messi, Ronaldo or Bale.
          With my BPL team I beat any team on highest level. I think that’s not possible with a BBVA team without at least one of the big players. Even on left and right wing there are no really good alternatives for Bale and Ronaldo… BPL do have good options.

          1. benzema, mandzukic, rodrigo, cerci, dos santos, uche are very good strikers and most of them are very cheap though. neymar is as expensive as hazard and he is good. has 5 star wf and 5 star skills. and those wingers of BPL are fast, but none of them is compareable to bale or cr7. and if you just need pace, the BBVA is not the right ligue for you. but the good thing about FUT is, that you dont have to concentrate on only one ligue. you can build hybrids and make the best out of both. i cant wait to test aguero next to bale 🙂

            1. You’re right about hybrid squads. How do you want to fit Agüero with Bale and keep good chemicistry for Agüero? You already have a red link between him and Bale.
              Any good Argentinian midfielders in BBVA to connect him too and keep 10 chem?
              Perhaps use Falcao with James or even Diego Costa with Spanish players.
              In fifa 14 I hooked up Agüero with Di Maria in a BBVA squad, however in fifa 15 Di Maria is a BPL player.

            2. @ferry: in a 433 it is pretty easy. aguero st, hazard lw and toure or an other man city player as cm and aguero is on 10 chem (with loyalty).

            3. @ferry: of course i need more bpl players than just aguero to make a 100chem hybrid with bale 🙂 about 40/60

    71. I feel that Alves’ stats are better than Bravo’s stats and he should be a more preferred keeper than the Chilean. I also feel he is a huge bargain in being cheaper than most GKs of his quality, if not all.
      P.S. I haven’t actually tested them out so pls feel free to differ in your opinions.

      BTW why is the comment I posted earlier missing. Is it some server error or is the fault with my impatience. Pls. Forgive me if my comment on the same subject is appearing two times as i am posting this with anticipation that the other one is not going to be posted when i refresh this page.

      1. Hi.
        Thank you for your comment.
        Every year I one of those who say that Diego Alves is one of the best goalkeepers in the game. But this year, I think Bravo is better. I played with both and the Chilean GK was my favourite.
        In fact, goalkeepers doesn’t have many secrets because they only have six attributes. Diving, reflexes and handling are the most important ones. Comparing all these stats, you find that Bravo is a much more balanced GK. He is no good as Diego in reflexes and diving, but in everything else he is better.

        1. Thank you for your reply. I appreciate your insight on their attributes.
          It is indeed true that goalkeepers hide no secrets. Their 6 attributes show us how good they are in game.
          Just like you, i am also a fan of Diego Alves every year. I supported him now based on my FUT 14 experience where he was my second choice BBVA keeper after Casillas. He made some amazing saves and saved my skin numerous times with 90 diving and 90 reflexes. Now with just a reduction of 2 points. I expected him to be just as good. But experience trumps prediction.

          But with Casillas being just around 20k, he is becoming an affordable option to buy, with just a little bit of trading. The price might reduce even further if he plays the Euro qualifiers as woeful as his WC 2014 performances, which i hope does not happen with him being the keeper of the class he is.
          He can guard the goal better than the other two and will be good return for money.

          P.S. For your next guide, just try to make it of a nation which is performing really worse at the qualifiers. We will be able to get players of good quality and also prices will reduce after some angry fans discard their players for bargain prices. (Just kidding!)

    72. im just wondering how do you rate benat. as a center mid. i personally loved him in any 3 man midfield. Insane free kicks+high long shots+hyper link with de marcos

    73. Hi great guides. Just wondering when you will be doing the bundesliga and serie A squad guides as these are the two that my team are made of. Thanks
