Introduction to the FIFA 16 Liga BBVA Guide


Building a team is the biggest challenge on FIFA 16 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 16. 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. 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 16 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 16 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 16 Ultimate Team BBVA teams are suggested, the prices considered are the ones of the date of the guide’s publication: October 2015. It’s natural that they have suffered some oscillations throughout the season, so we added a link where you can check the updated 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 24 titles. Atlético de Madrid (10), 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 Miranda (Inter), Mario Mandžukić and Sami Khedira (Juventus), Toby Alderweireld (Spurs), Raúl Jiménez (SL Benfica), Gerard Deulofeu (Everton), Pedro (Chelsea), Juanmi (Southampton), Fábio Coentrão and Lucas Silva (Marseille), Carlos Bacca (AC Milan) and Nicolás Otamendi (Manchester City). But, the biggest transfers out were Casillas, from Real Madrid to FC Porto, and Xavi Hernandez, from Barcelona to Al Sadd SC.

    These transfers didn’t necessarily make the Liga BBVA weaker. The Spanish teams spent more than 400 million Euros on strong reinforcements: Yannick Ferreira Carrasco Stefan Savić, Bernard and Filipe Luís (Atlético de Madrid), Rafael van der Vaart (Bétis), Deyverson (Belenenses), Bruma (Real Sociedad), Gaël Kakuta (Sevilla) Álvaro Negredo, Danilo Barbosa and Aymen Abdennour (Valencia) and Roberto Soldado (Villarreal). But the biggest signings of the season happened in Madrid. Danilo, Jackson Martinez and Mateo Kovačić have joined La Liga for 96 million Euros, almost a quarter 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.

    Best FIFA 16 Liga BBVA Goalkeepers


    Goalkeepers are the players that are used least on the field. Because of this they are also first ignored when building a team. Most players start their purchases with a forward, later they strengthen the midfield the defence and only later the goal. The truth is a good goalkeeper may be worth a lot of goals. They are a good investment because they are normally the most economically accessible players.

    The goalkeepers with most prestige in the Liga BBVA are Marc-André ter Stegen, Diego Alves 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.


    Claudio Bravo 83 FC Barcelona CHI
    Diego Alves 83 Valencia CF BRA
    Marc-André ter Stegen 82 FC Barcelona GER
    Jan Oblak 81 Atlético Madrid SVN
    Moyá 81 Atlético Madrid ESP
    Kiko Casilla 81 Real Madrid ESP
    Sergio Asenjo 81 Villarreal CF ESP
    Guillermo Ochoa 80 Málaga CF MEX
    Guaita 80 Getafe CF ESP
    Keylor Navas 79 Real Madrid COS
    Iraizoz 79 Athletic Bilbao ESP
    Mathew Ryan 78 Valencia CF AUS
    Gerónimo Rulli 78 Real Sociedad ARG
    Beto 78 Sevilla FC POR


    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 Ochoa.


    Diego Alves 88 Valencia CF BRA
    Guillermo Ochoa 87 Málaga CF MEX
    Claudio Bravo 86 FC Barcelona CHI
    Guaita 86 Getafe CF ESP
    Carlos Idriss Kameni 86 Málaga CF CAM
    Marc-André ter Stegen 85 FC Barcelona GER
    Mathew Ryan 84 Valencia CF AUS
    Sergio Asenjo 83 Villarreal CF ESP
    Keylor Navas 83 Real Madrid COS

    Jan Oblak 82 Atlético Madrid SVN
    Gerónimo Rulli 82 Real Sociedad ARG
    Mariano Barbosa 82 Villarreal CF ARG
    Javi Varas 82 UD Las Palmas ESP


    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 Moyá.


    Diego Alves 88 Valencia CF BRA
    Moyá 85 Atlético Madrid ESP
    Sergio Asenjo 84 Villarreal CF ESP
    Claudio Bravo 83 FC Barcelona CHI
    Marc-André ter Stegen 83 FC Barcelona GER
    Kiko Casilla 83 Real Madrid ESP
    Guillermo Ochoa 83 Málaga CF MEX

    Guaita 81 Getafe CF ESP
    Mathew Ryan 80 Valencia CF AUS
    Gerónimo Rulli 80 Real Sociedad ARG
    Rubén 80 Levante UD ESP


    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 Claudio Bravo’s weak point. Even though he can’t be considered a short goalkeeper, the truth is he’s 7 cm short of the mighty Iraizoz, this gold goalkeeper holds the title of tallest Liga BBVA Goalkeeper. None of the top goalkeepers has 1,90m or more.


    Iraizoz 191 / 6′3″ Athletic Bilbao ESP
    Kiko Casilla 191 / 6′3″ Real Madrid ESP
    Guaita 190 / 6′3″ Getafe CF ESP
    Mariano Barbosa 190 / 6′3″ Villarreal CF ARG
    Gerónimo Rulli 189 / 6′2″ Real Sociedad ARG
    Moyá 189 / 6′2″ Atlético Madrid ESP
    Sergio Asenjo 189 / 6′2″ Villarreal CF ESP
    Francesco Bardi 188 / 6′2″ RCD Espanyol ITA
    Diego Alves 188 / 6′2″ Valencia CF BRA
    Marc-André ter Stegen 187 / 6′2″ FC Barcelona GER
    Rubén 187 / 6′2″ Levante UD ESP
    Iván Cuéllar 187 / 6′2″ Sporting Gijón ESP
    Jan Oblak 186 / 6′1″ Atlético Madrid SVN
    Germán Lux 186 / 6′1″ RC Deportivo ARG
    Carlos Idriss Kameni 186 / 6′1″ Málaga CF CAM


    Now that Casillas is not playing in this league any more, the choice for the best Liga BBVA goalkeeper on FIFA 16 Ultimate Team is not easy. Diego Alves and Claudio Bravo are both great players.

    In our opinion, Diego Alves is the best choice. Despite not having good positioning and decent handling, he is one of the best in the world in the two more important attributes. Claudio Bravo is the number two. He is the La Liga goalkeeper with highest total stats.

    Best FUT 16 Liga BBVA Goalkeeper



    Best FIFA 16 Liga BBVA Centre Backs


    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 ESP
    Piqué 85 FC Barcelona ESP
    Diego Godín 85 Atlético Madrid URU
    Pepe 84 Real Madrid POR
    Jérémy Mathieu 83 FC Barcelona FRA
    Javier Mascherano 83 FC Barcelona ARG

    Mateo Musacchio 81 Villarreal CF ARG
    Iñigo Martínez 81 Real Sociedad ESP
    Aymen Abdennour 81 Valencia CF TUN
    Thomas Vermaelen 80 FC Barcelona BEL


    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 ESP
    Diego Godín 87 Atlético Madrid URU
    Piqué 86 FC Barcelona ESP
    Pepe 86 Real Madrid POR
    Aymeric Laporte 86 Athletic Bilbao FRA
    Javier Mascherano 85 FC Barcelona ARG

    Aderlan Santos 84 Valencia CF BRA
    Marc Bartra 84 FC Barcelona ESP
    Shkodran Mustafi 83 Valencia CF GER
    Iñigo Martínez 83 Real Sociedad ESP
    Weligton 83 Málaga CF BRA


    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 Aymen Abdennour and Pepe are the strongest ones.


    Aymen Abdennour 84 Valencia CF TUN
    Pepe 83 Real Madrid POR
    Jérémy Mathieu 82 FC Barcelona FRA
    Mikel Gonzalez 82 Real Sociedad ESP
    Amaya 82 Rayo Vallecano ESP
    Michaël Ciani 82 RCD Espanyol FRA
    Sergio Ramos 81 Real Madrid ESP
    Daniel Carriço 81 Sevilla FC POR
    Adil Rami 81 Sevilla FC FRA
    Etxeita 81 Athletic Bilbao ESP
    Javier Mascherano 80 FC Barcelona ARG
    Shkodran Mustafi 80 Valencia CF GER
    Iñigo Martínez 80 Real Sociedad ESP
    Gurpegi 80 Athletic Bilbao ESP
    José María Giménez 80 Atlético Madrid URU


    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. Jérémy Mathieu and Nacho Fernández are also fast players.


    Sergio Ramos 79 Real Madrid ESP
    Raphaël Varane 79 Real Madrid FRA
    Jérémy Mathieu 76 FC Barcelona FRA
    Nacho Fernández 75 Real Madrid ESP
    Iñigo Martínez 74 Real Sociedad ESP
    Pepe 73 Real Madrid POR
    Aymeric Laporte 73 Athletic Bilbao FRA
    Marc Bartra 72 FC Barcelona ESP
    Bernardo 71 Sporting Gijón COL
    Marcos Angeleri 71 Málaga CF ARG
    Diego Godín 70 Atlético Madrid URU
    Thomas Vermaelen 70 FC Barcelona BEL
    Rúben Vezo 70 Valencia CF POR
    Shkodran Mustafi 69 Valencia CF GER
    José María Giménez 69 Atlético Madrid URU


    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 2 of 6 main attributes.

    Pepe and Jérémy Mathieu are without a doubt good players for this position but there are other cheaper solutions. Like, Iñigo Martinez. He is several times cheaper than Piqué, for example.

    Best FUT 16 Liga BBVA Centre Backs



    Best FIFA 16 Liga BBVA Right Backs

    RB | RWB

    Full backs have the role of troubling the job of wingers. In addition, good full backs also support their team mates on offensive manoeuvres.

    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 84 FC Barcelona BRA
    Juanfran 81 Atlético Madrid ESP
    Danilo 81 Real Madrid BRA
    Carvajal 81 Real Madrid ESP
    Tito 80 Rayo Vallecano ESP
    De Marcos 80 Athletic Bilbao ESP
    Arbeloa 80 Real Madrid ESP
    Coke 80 Sevilla FC ESP
    Mario Gaspar 79 Villarreal CF ESP
    Carlos Martínez 79 Real Sociedad ESP


    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 Danilo and other seven Spanish players defend better than him.


    Arbeloa 82 Real Madrid ESP
    Carvajal 81 Real Madrid ESP
    Danilo 80 Real Madrid BRA
    Mario Gaspar 80 Villarreal CF ESP
    Carlos Martínez 80 Real Sociedad ESP
    Barragán 80 Valencia CF ESP
    Tito 79 Rayo Vallecano ESP
    Coke 79 Sevilla FC ESP
    Dani Alves 78 FC Barcelona BRA
    Santiago Vergini 78 Getafe CF ARG


    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 is the fastest FUT 16 right back playing in La Liga. Dani Alves and Juanfran are the only ones that may also be considered fast players.


    De Marcos 89 Athletic Bilbao ESP
    Dani Alves 86 FC Barcelona BRA
    Juanfran 84 Atlético Madrid ESP
    Mariano 83 Sevilla FC BRA
    Damián Suárez 82 Getafe CF URU
    Carvajal 81 Real Madrid ESP
    Danilo 81 Real Madrid BRA
    Iván López 81 Levante UD ESP
    Mario Gaspar 80 Villarreal CF ESP
    Tito 78 Rayo Vallecano ESP


    Finally, Dani Alves has competition. It is not easy to choose between him and Danilo. The Madrid’s defender is more complete, but Dani Alves has better stats for his position. 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 them, 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 Juanfran or Carajal.

    Best FUT 16 Liga BBVA Right Backs



    Best FIFA 16 Liga BBVA Left Backs

    LB | LWB

    Left backs have exactly the same role of their team mates on the other flank. In other words, they try to make a winger’s job hard and participate in the team’s offensive manoeuvres.

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


    Jordi Alba 84 FC Barcelona ESP
    Marcelo 83 Real Madrid BRA
    Filipe Luís 82 Atlético Madrid BRA
    Benoît Trémoulinas 81 Sevilla FC FRA
    Gayà 80 Valencia CF ESP
    Adriano 79 FC Barcelona BRA
    Balenziaga 79 Athletic Bilbao ESP
    Siqueira 78 Atlético Madrid BRA
    Jesús Gámez 78 Atlético Madrid ESP
    De la Bella 78 Real Sociedad ESP


    Now that Filipe Luis is back, himself, Marcelo, Jesús Gámez and Navarro are the four left backs with better defensive skills.


    Marcelo 81 Real Madrid BRA
    Filipe Luís 81 Atlético Madrid BRA
    Jesús Gámez 81 Atlético Madrid ESP
    Fernando Navarro 81 RC Deportivo ESP
    Jordi Alba 80 FC Barcelona ESP
    Balenziaga 79 Athletic Bilbao ESP
    Lucas Orbán 79 Valencia CF ARG
    Gayà 78 Valencia CF ESP
    Benoît Trémoulinas 77 Sevilla FC FRA
    Adriano 77 FC Barcelona BRA


    Jordi Alba is the fastest left back in the world. He makes his speed his biggest threat, differing from other players from this position. Excepting Nacho and Gayà, all other players are a lot slower.


    Jordi Alba 92 FC Barcelona ESP
    Nacho 90 Rayo Vallecano ESP
    Gayà 87 Valencia CF ESP
    Benoît Trémoulinas 85 Sevilla FC FRA
    Filipe Luís 82 Atlético Madrid BRA
    Marcelo 81 Real Madrid BRA
    Jonny 81 Celta Vigo ESP
    Toño 81 Levante UD ESP
    Balenziaga 80 Athletic Bilbao ESP
    Siqueira 79 Atlético Madrid BRA


    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. 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, Filipe Luís is probably the most interesting one. However, Gayà 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 FIFA 16 Liga BBVA Central Defensive Midfielders


    Many of the FIFA 16 Ultimate Team formations require some midfielders that have a natural aptitude to defend. Central defensive midfielders distinguish themselves for being especially aimed to help the more retreated line of their teams. According to their attributes and their work rates, they can also be useful for starting attacks. They are players that occupy a very strategic position in the field.

    With regard to the popularity, the supremacy of Busquets over all other Liga BBVA central defensive midfielders is extremely clear.


    Sergio Busquets 86 FC Barcelona ESP
    Grzegorz Krychowiak 82 Sevilla FC POL
    Iturraspe 81 Athletic Bilbao ESP
    Iborra 81 Sevilla FC ESP
    Camacho 81 Málaga CF ESP
    Trashorras 80 Rayo Vallecano ESP

    Baena 78 Rayo Vallecano ESP
    Casemiro 77 Real Madrid BRA
    Verza 77 Levante UD ESP
    Xavi Torres 76 Real Betis ESP


    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 are Busquets and Krychowiak.


    Sergio Busquets 83 FC Barcelona ESP
    Grzegorz Krychowiak 82 Sevilla FC POL
    Iborra 81 Sevilla FC ESP
    Iturraspe 80 Athletic Bilbao ESP

    José Cañas 75 RCD Espanyol ESP
    Casemiro 75 Real Madrid BRA
    Didier Digard 75 Real Betis FRA
    Trashorras 72 Rayo Vallecano ESP


    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, Grzegorz Krychowiak is the one that stands out. On the other hand there’s Abraham. The Spanish player rarely wins a physical brawl due to being the weakest central defensive midfielder from the main Spanish League.


    Grzegorz Krychowiak 87 Sevilla FC POL
    Camacho 84 Málaga CF ESP
    Iborra 83 Sevilla FC ESP
    Steven N’Zonzi 83 Sevilla FC FRA

    Didier Digard 79 Real Betis FRA
    Rubén Pérez 79 Granada CF ESP
    Xavi Torres 77 Real Betis ESP
    Iturraspe 76 Athletic Bilbao ESP


    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.

    Krychowiak is our favourite. He is strong, fast, 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, Camacho is a very interesting choice. He is our economic choice.

    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 Iniesta, Modric, James Rodriguez and Kroos.

    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.

    Kroos, Iniesta and Parejo have a great passing stat.

    Parejo 80 Valencia CF ESP


    Iniesta is the best player 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 not in our first choices because he 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 Parejo.

    Best FIFA 16 Liga BBVA Right Wingers

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

    The best wingers in the world play in Liga BBVA: Ronaldo and Neymar on the left side; Messi and Bale one the right side.

    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. Five gold players have pace over 90, being the highlighted Gareth Bale.

    Federico Cartabia 77 RC Deportivo ARG


    Just being fast doesn’t cut it to reach the opponents box, having good dribbling to surpass the opponents’ players that appear on the way.

    There are a lot of players gifted in dribbling, but no one can be compared to Lionel Messi. He has the best dribbling stat in the game.


    Lionel Messi 95 FC Barcelona ARG
    Arda Turan 87 FC Barcelona TUR

    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 Messi and Pedro Léon offer excellent quality passing. Bruma and Aleix Vidal, 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.


    Lionel Messi 86 FC Barcelona ARG
    Pedro León 86 Getafe CF ESP

    Lionel Messi is clearly the most indicated players to occupy this position in a team without budget restraints. He is the one with best pasing, shooting and dribbling. The only problem is his price. If you are rich but not so much, Bale is also a top-quality winger.

    For those that can’t pay so many coins, Carlos Vela and Turan might be an option, depending of how much important is pace to you. However, Sofiane Feghouli is much cheaper and almost as good as the Mexican player. That’s why he is our economic choice.

    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.

    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 best pace, passing, shooting and physical. 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 winger is also very expensive. Yevgen Konoplyanka is our third choice.

    There are no big differences between Nolito, Piatti and Jesé. Nolito is more balanced, Piatti is faster and Jesé is more expensive. Any of them is a good choice for low-budget squads.

    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.

    Luis Suárez and Karim Benzema are the BBVA forwards with best shooting. This means the best forwards are the ones that are best at shooting.

    Jump, strength and stamina are the ingredients to the new physical attribute, very important when we are analysing the best forwards: jump to score with the head; strength to dispute the ball with the opponents; and stamina to sprint in direction of goal at any time of the game.

    That’s here where we see that Jackson Martinez is a great player. His team mates Griezmann and Ángel Correa, for example, are almost in the bottom of this list.

    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.

    Thievy Bifouma and Nordin Amrabat are the fastest ones.

    Messi has moved to the left side but the attack of Liga BBVA is still very strong.

    Suárez is the best Liga BBVA forward, without any discussion. He has the best passing, shooting and dribbling. However, he is expensive forcing many players to choose another forward.

    It is not easy to choose between Karim Benzema and Jackson Martinez. It depends of your play style: the Frenchman is better for link up play, while the Colombian striker is perfect for counter attacking football. In a general way, our preference goes to Jackson Martinez: he has better work rates, is stronger, his heading stats are better and he helps the team mates more often.

    Griezmann is our fourth choice. His attributes are better to play as a CF or even as a CAM.

    Far from these strikers quality, Nordin Amrabat 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 (1): 4-1-2-1-2 with unlimited budget, 4-3-3 with 100k budget and 4-4-2 with a 25k budget.

    (1) These formations were chosen because they are the most popular ones. It doesn’t mean that they are the best formations for this league.

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

      In our opinion, Diego Alves is the best Liga BBVA goalkeeper. He is often criticized for having a bad positioning but the other two good goalkeepers, Bravo and Ter Stegen, are not much better.

      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. On the right side, Dani Alves isn’t better player than Danilo but he is probably better right back. 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 Danilo. 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.

      For the CDM position, we made our most questionable choice: Krychowiak. We know that many of you would prefer to play with someone more popular, like Modric or Busquets, but no one gives more security to your defence as he does. And in FIFA 16 it is extremely important to defend well in the midfield. For the next position, James Rodriguez is the most balanced player. Griezmann can also be used in this position.

      On the wings, the team have the two best players in the world: Messi and Ronaldo. It is a waste to leave players like Neymar and Bale out of this team. However, since there isn’t many people that can afford Ronaldo and Messi, the most likely is to be these two to stay out of the team.

      If your budget allows you, Luis Suárez is the obvious first choice for the attack line. You have two players to join him: Benzema if you have a patient play style or Jackson Martinez if you prefer counter attacks.

      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.

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

      As we already have explained, Diego Alves is our first choice to the goal.

      Pepe and Mathieu complement each other very well in a fast and strong defence. Danilo shows his amazing stats in the right side, while Filipe Luís replaces reasonably well Alba and Marcelo in the opposite side.

      The central midfield position has to be Grzegorz Krychowiak’s. The Sevilla’s player 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 Konoplyanka beats the concurrence on the left wing, Turan or Vela could equally fill with quality the opposite side. It all depends if you need someone fast or not.

      Over the attack line, Jackson Martinez is an excellent choice.

      If you still have some room in your budget, Alba is a player that would improve this squad a lot.

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

      Sergio Asenjo was a nice surprise this year. You shouldn’t miss this cheap and high-quality goalkeeper.

      Iñigo Martínez is probably the ‘best value for money’ you will ever find in Liga BBVA. He is slightly worse than Pepe but his price is several times lower. Aymen Abdennour, De Marcos and Trémoulinas are the three other defenders.

      On the midfield, Enzo Pérez and Parejo complete each other well. Nolito is our choice to the left side. Because he is not a rare card, he is strongly undervalued. However his performance remains the same. Feghouli, another very cheap player, fills the right wing in order to assist Amrabat and Rodrigo.

    1. Hi im using 4-4-3 attack bbva .

      This are my squad first 11.

      Alba pique ramos alves
      Iniesta modric rodriguez
      Neymar suarez turan

      Any suggestions in improving my squads?


    2. Hey Rodrigo,

      actually I’m constructing a 4-2-3-1 BBVA-Serie A hybrid. I’m really undecided about the CAM and CDM positions. At the moment I have:

      Lichtsteiner – Barzagli – Miranda – Alex Sandro
      Marchisio – Nainggolan (or Krychowiak or Khedira or a Spanish or another Italian?)
      Koke – Griezmann – Isco (or Rakitic or Pjanic or an Italian or another Spanish on the wings?)
      Jackson Martinez

      What do you think about my squad?

      Really looking forward to your suggestions and feedback!

      1. Hi! I love hybrid squads.
        To me it looks ok with Krychowiak and Isco but it depends of your play style and preferences. Try it. You can always change if it doesn’t work as you want.

    3. Hello! How are You rodrigo? Thanks for the advices in the past.

      So I have tried to play 4-3-3(2) like you said. Sometimes it works sometimes not.

      Yeah I love counterattack.. playing fast .. not so much dribbling.

      Now my squad:

      Aduriz (TOTS) 91
      GRIEZMANN 84
      RW :
      Atsu ( I love his speed)
      Alexis Vidal
      Krychowiak ( inf 83)
      CB :
      Jordi Alba
      Dani alves
      Oblak (TOTS 89)

      SO the question: what should I buy to have a strong team or what formation to get for counterattack? I am in div 5 so .. I need some advices.

      Thanks. Looking forward for you answers .

    4. Current bbva team consists of 4-1-2-1-2(2)
      Gk-de gea
      Although Prem gk still Spanish. Passing and build up play is spot on as I prefer playing short passes down centre this formation is very effective.

    5. I want to improve my squad, can you help. My current squad is:
      Formation: 442
      ST: Lukaku(TOTS) and Diego Costa
      CM: Bruno(TOTS) and Fabregas
      LM: David Silva
      RM: Mata
      CB: Pique and Morgan(TOTS)
      RB: Juanfran(TOTS)
      LB: Jordi Alba
      GK: De Gea
      I was thinking 97 TOTS Oblak in place of De Gea and Aguero. Could you suggest a suitable replacement for Mata.

      1. Hi. You already have a top squad.
        Pique NIF? In that case, why you not try Sergio Ramos?
        Oblak and Aguero will be great additions. About Mata, maybe you could try Pedro IF.

    6. Hi!
      I created this team for the la liga tots tournament!
      I have a very(VERY!) low budget, I have no money after I have made this team.(Like 4k)
      This is the team: What do you think?

      Diego Alves GK
      Marc Bartra CB
      Vermaelen CB
      Nacho(77 rated one, 90 pace) LB
      Danilo RB
      Krychowiak CDM
      Jese LM
      Koke CAM
      Feghouli RM
      Amrabat ST
      Jackson Martinez ST

      what do you think? should I sell someone and buy someone else?

    7. Hey Rodrigo,
      How are you?
      Kindly I would like ur opinion and advise in my new team am going to buy.
      Liga bbva,4-2-2
      Griezmen (INF 87 rating)
      Benzema(gold or INF 87 depending on what left of money after I buy all the rest players)
      CM:Rodriguez – Rakitic(85 rating)
      CB: Ramos – Pique(OR Bartra 81 rating)
      GK: De Gea (I have him already)
      What do you think and what suggestions from you to replace?
      Waiting for ur advise ,it really matter for me..thanks

        1. Thanks Rodrigo,
          I bought Martinez (gold) instead of benzema and vela instead of fegholi.
          I have coins to buy CB..but the problem with godin will not match with De Gea.
          I should buy a Spain player and the only options is Pique,bartra and Inigo Martinez.
          I can buy inform bartra (86 def)

    18. Salut Rodrigo .
      I have tried a thousand teams in fifa 16 fut and a just find one who is compatible with my gameplay ….
      gk : de gea
      rb : carvajal
      cb: Martinez (Bayern – inform 85) , ramos
      lb: Jordi alba
      cm : iniesta , modric
      cam : rodriguez
      rw: vela
      lw: konoplianka
      st: benzema

      I play a 4-3-3- ataking formation .
      Can I improve my squad ? The back line and midfield is very good , but in attack I have many problems in scoring goals .
      What can I do ? If you have an answer for me , I will appreciate 🙂 .
      The formation is good ?
      Should i play with 2 strikers ? But i have to change the formation ….
      Please help me 🙂 !
      Thank you very much for your time !

      1. Hi.
        As we always say, formation depends mainly of your preferences and play style.
        You have a very decent and balanced team. You don’t have weak points but maybe your next buys should be Benzema and Sergio Ramos.

    19. Hola Rodrigo!
      Mi plantilla de La BPL es la siguiente:
      Lloris (probé a courtois y no me gusto)
      Cazorla (probé a David Silva y no rindió)
      Willian-Kane TIF- Alexis.
      Que me recomiendas mejorar? Quizás digas la delantera, pero probé con Costa y también a Sturridge y ninguno rindió como Kane TIF, tiene 75 goles en 71 partidos.
      Los suplentes son: Clyne-Cahill-Alberto Moreno- Matic-Schneiderlin-Eriksen-Shaqiri-Benteke(sus números entre partidos jugados y goles marcados en mi club son increíbles)-Depay

        1. Ok thanks. Your Guides aré the best. I organise my squad thanks to your guides, my brother the same With your Serie A guise and my cousin so With your Liga BBVA guide. Thanks four your work.

    20. I Apologize. What I had meant to say before was that the players on the left side of the slash was my first squad, and the players on the right were subs. I was asking for any tips on who to buy. Also, LOVE your squad guides, Rodrigo. (P.S. Formation is 4-3-3(2) )

    22. Hi. I play on FIFA 15 New Season, so I have FIFA 15 players too. How would this squad work?

      Cbs: Ramos and Pepe/ Martinez
      Lb: Alves/ Marcelo
      Rb:Dani Alves/ De Marcos
      Cdm/ Krychowiak/ Busquets

        1. Ok done! Tyvm. Some tip about chemistry styles? Im terribly bad dribling so basically i make passes and run to reach the goal.

    23. Hello Rodrigo, thanks for your advice.
      I have a 4-1-2-1-2 formation
      GK- Diego Alves
      CBs- Pepe, Godin
      RB- Carvajal
      LB- Jordi Alba
      CDM- Grzegorz Krychowiak
      RM- Carlos Vela
      LM- Yevgen Konoplyanka
      CAM- Koke
      STs- Jakson Martinez, Griezman
      I am saving coins to get a good player, wich player should I get first to improve my squad? And wich players should I change next?

      1. You have a nice team. In my opinion there are 3 good additions you can give a try: James Rodriguez (as soon as possible!), Sergio Ramos (to replace Godin) and Benzema (best affordable BBVA ST).

    24. Hi Rodrigo
      i have 400k and i play 4-1-2-1-2(2)
      do you think the best team by this formation would be a BBVA
      and do you think that this team would be the best?
      GK Alves
      RB Dani
      CB Ramos
      CB Pepe
      LB Alba
      CDM Krychowiak
      CM Iniesta
      CM Modric
      CAM James
      ST Benzema
      ST Suarez
      or do you think a team from another league with this budget would be better?

    25. Hey Rodrigo. I played 4-3-2-1 formation.

      GK: De Gea
      LB: Alba
      CB: Ramos
      CB: Pique
      RB: Dani Alves
      CM: James
      CM: Modric
      CM: Iniesta
      LF: Neymar
      ST: Benzema
      RF: Bale

      Chemistry is 100 and rating is 86
      How can I increase my rating? And what you should change about this team?

      1. Hi.
        Why do you want to increase your rating? A better rating doesn’t mean a better team.
        Your team is great. When you have more coins, buy Suárez. I also think that Piqué is not the second best CB.

        1. True, but i think de gea is better then alves, so then i need a spanish defender as pique. or do you think somebody else? I will buy suarez if i have more coins but for now the money-box is empty… Some other changes?

    26. I hae Neymar – Suarez – Bale as the front trio. Should I buy Ronaldo for Neymar or Messi for Bale first?

    27. Hii rodrigo,
      Can you suggest me a good central back for my team. I have a budget of around 50k.I was thinking about mascherano as I already have matheiu. Or should I go with Pepe? Or any other suggestion.

    28. Hi Rodrigo
      I have 85k coins
      As the prices have gone down,
      Could you suggest me a team of any league?
      It would be very helpful
      Hybrid would be even better

    29. I’m in the process of building the ultimate rated team, but still with great chemistry – Any suggestions ?? Other than the whole Barca team…. 🙂

    30. My team currently(4-3-3):
      GK – C.Bravo & M.Ter-Stagen
      RB – Juanfran & ____
      CB – Pepe, J.Mathieu, S.Savic & _____
      LB – Filipe & ____
      CM – Koke, Tiago, Rafinha, M.Kovacic, S.Roberto & _____
      RW – A.Turan, A.Vidal & L.Vasquez
      LW – Jese.R & D.Cheryshev
      ST – F.Torres & L.Vietto

      Building a squad of just Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Barca players

      Currently saving for either improved CM or ST


        1. Thanks, i have since upgraded and changed my XI…(and added some none Barca, RM & AM players)



    31. Formation 442
      Adriano/De Marcos
      Bernardo/Inigo Martinez
      Camacho (have money for rare one but he is just amazing now with my budget)/Perez
      Fifa 16 mobile android
      Any suggestion at that price

    32. akshredder14

      thanks you and mind regards to you and your website.

    33. Hi, this is my Liga BBVA Team at the moment:

      (4-3-3 – not decided on which one yet)

      GK – Digo Alves
      CBs – Godin and Mathieu
      LB and RB – Tremoulinas and Danilo
      CDM – Krychowiak
      CMs – Rakitic and Isco
      LW – Konoplyanka
      RW – Turan
      ST – Griezmann

      Can you suggest which 4-3-3 to play and any improvements?

    34. If pace was not a factor, which duo would you choose in front of 1 CDM Busquets,

      Kroos – James – Iniesta – Modric

    35. What do you think about Mascherano instead of Mathieu? i got mascherano, should i sell him to get math?

    36. Hi i have a serie a team but im getting pretty bored and not winning that many matches. my team is
      -lichsteiner, miranda, barzagli, sandro
      -hamsik, marchisio, naingolan
      -candreva, higuain, anderson
      and a pretty good bench, only players i can improve on is getting pogba and chiellini in this league.
      Any suggestions for what league I should start with? I was thinking liga bbva so I could have realistic targets to buy in the future like modric etc.
      Is this the right league and what team would you pick that would cost roughly the same one as I have currently?

    37. Hi, I am thinking to make a Liga BBVA squad for my ultimate team I was wondering who I should put RF,ST and LF I have a medium budget btw around 200K

    38. My team is
      Pique Godin dani Alves Marcelo
      Busquets Rakitic Isco
      Konoplyanka turan
      How can I improve it

    39. Hi Rodrigo,
      Great guide, really made me think about the changes I should do in my squad…most of the players are from your list but if you have time to respond, who do you think thet are the two players I should go for next if I have the following squad:
      I don’t really have funds right now but I plan to play, make coins and buy players from now on rather then opening packs and hoping to get a good player. I am really unlucky when it comes to cards unfortunately…

    40. Hey Rodrigo. I have a question I have my team playing in a 4-3-2-1 formation. I really believe I have really good strong solid players.

      GK: Neuer
      LB: Marcelo
      CB: Serigo ramos
      CB: pepe
      RB: dani alves
      CM: James
      CM: Modric
      CM: Iniesta
      LF: Neymar
      ST: Benzema
      RF: Bale
      Substitutions: De gea, pique, Xavi, Mata, Diego costa, Fernando Torres, Isco..
      Chemistry is 100 and rating is 86
      My really two important questions are how can I increase my rating? And what other formation is as good as 4 3 2 1
      Thank you.

    41. Hey Rodrigo!
      Don´t know how to improve my Squad. I´m really struggling in Liga 3 and i hope you can help me optimizing my Squad which is already good i think. I´m using the 41212-2 Formation which worked pretty well until now.

      GK: Alves
      RB: Danilo/Juanfran
      CB: Pepe/Mascherano
      CB: Godin
      LB: Filipe Luis/Trémoulinas
      ST: Benzema/Amrabat
      ST: Griezmann/Martinez

      I´m thinking about getting Mathieu or Varane cuz of their Pace. Mascherano is doing a good Job but i think in combination with Pepe or Godin there are better choices.
      Ramos is still too expensive and out of choice.
      Then there would be Marcelo as a LB for 15k. But he hasn´t much better stats than filipe luis so should i invest 5k more to get Jordi Alba?
      I just wanna know what your next step would be to improve this Squad.
      Aaaaaand i´m to silly to play with Martinez i think. 1 header out of 10, Dribbling isn´t as good as i thought, his shooting could be better and what i´m most angry about is that he is often loosing the Ball to fast. Sometimes i´m much better with playing Amrabat xD Is there another choice for Martinez? What about IF Gameiro?
      Thanks for your Guides ^^

      1. Yes, you need to get Alba. Good value for money.
        The next step is on the defence. Maybe Alba first and then a new CB.
        I love Martinez so I am not the best guy to help you to feel better.

    42. Hey what do you think about adding DE GEA to this squad? I’m a new player in fut and wondering if it’s a good option to add player from other league?

      Thanks for this topic, i build whole squad beside ronaldo on your advice.

    43. Hey Rodrigo, im thinking about selling my BPL team and go for a BBVA team built around Konoplyanka, do you think it’s worth it? I have all this to sell + a some more reserves and subs, so an extra 5-7k there maybe and around 10k coins already.

      GK: Begovic
      RB: Kyle Walker
      CB: mangala & Okore
      LB: Azpilicuata
      CMR: Fernandinho
      CMC: Wijnaldum
      CML: Wilshire
      LW: Nasri
      RW: Shaqiri
      ST: Remy

      Thanks in advance!

    44. Hi and thanks for the answer. And what about the goalkeeper? Casillas or Diego Alves is better in your opinion?

    45. Ηi Rodrigo which one do you think is best as a cdm? Fifa15’s Khedira or Fifa 16’s Krychowiak? I currently have Fifa 15 new season on mobile since Fifa 16 is incompatible with my device. I really don’t know which of the Liga BBVA squads you have published is best for this version. Fifa 15’s or Fifa 16’s? Thanks.

    46. Hello author or authors of this guide. Someone must tell you this:
      This is the best and beautifulest guide on this topic i’ve found on whole internet.
      Really thank you for this.

      Best informations here. Not every fan of FIFA (including me) have idea about “in game quality” of players. Im talking about this – The stats doesnt means everything and you describe this in the best possible way.

      I can see that you have really great experience and thats why im going right now tell about this site to all my friends. And im going to read other topics.

      Really good job…many many thanks 🙂
      With love – Marcus

    47. i have a question about GK. i think positioning is the most important attribute of all. than reflexes and diving. if the GK stand in the right place, it can compensate the lack of reflexes. this will make asenjo the best GK. am i thinking wrong ?

    48. Hey can you give me any ideas to improve my 433 formation team?

      GK: Casilla
      LB: Moreno
      CB: Bartra IF
      CB: Laporte
      RB: De Marcos

      CM: Isco
      CM: Banega
      CAM: Koke

      LW: Konoplyanka
      ST: Correa
      RW: Carrasco IF

      1. Too tough to choose. I love them both for different reasons.. godín is out and out defender where as ramos has great attacking prowess

    49. My current squad is a 4 1 2 1 2 (2)
      Gk bravo
      Lb alba
      Cb ramos
      Cb inform godín
      Rb Alves
      Cdm busquets
      Cm iniesta
      Cm modric
      Cam Rodriguez
      St benzema
      St martinez.
      Let me know what you think. My favourite player is martinez. The bloke is just a tank. The inform godín is amazing too..

    50. Hi Rodrigo!
      Pedro Leon has good ratings to be cm or cam
      Like he has 86 passing 75 shooting and pace
      But he is RM, is there any way I can convert him to cm or cam?

      1. You can use him as CM if you want. AS you can see here, he can get chemistry 7 after 10 matches if you use a manager of his league or nationality. Individual chemistry 7 is the minimum we recommend.

    51. My 4321
      GK: Diego Alves
      RB: Dani Alves
      CB(r): Pepe CB(l): Ramos
      LB: Alba
      CM(r): Modric (I like him more than James cuz Modric is more balanced) CM(l) Iniesta CM(c) Krychowiak is better Defensive, but Busq is better ball player and i can’t decide (I thing to get IF Krychowiak)
      RF: Bale LF: Neymar ST: Suarez
      Bench: Bravo, Carvajal, Pique, Filipe Luis, Perez, Rakitic, Turan as RF (can play as LF, as RF and as ST verry good)
      Okay before i start trading for Messi and Ronaldo, do you have something to improve?

    52. Hey Rodrigo. Nice article!
      I have a simple question, which CAM would you recommend for a 4-1-2-1-2 formation? I can not affort neighter James or Iniesta.


        1. I can not afford him either. :/
          I’m thinking of Koke, Banega or Rackitk.
          What do you think?

    53. Hi rodrigo
      Your guide has helped me a lot
      But I was wondering why afe are perices almoat half in xbox one than in ps4?

    54. Do you think Pepe and Mathieu are better than Varane and Laporte and what is the best RM/RW apart from Bale and Messi?

    55. Thanks a lot this was super helpful!

      I recently earned enough to buy suarez, so now I’m struggling on which formation to use, currently I’m playing in a 4-3-3, here’s that team:

      I’ve been using griezman when martinez’s fitness is down, but now that I have three strikers that I love playing with I was wondering if I should switch to a 4-1-2-1-2, here’s that team (without a cdm yet):

      I like both formations since I like playing with pacey wingers, but I can’t decide what to do, basically this is the decision I’m struggling with, either I keep the 4-3-3, sell griezman/martinez and that will give me enough to buy modric, or I switch to the 4-1-2-1-2 and sell a cm for a cdm, any input on this or beyond is really appreciated!
      Thanks 🙂

      1. Hi.
        The formations should be chosen according to your play style and not your players.
        In my personal opinion, the 41212 team is more balanced. The other one is too risky.

    56. Do you think Pepe and Mathieu are better than Varane and Laporte and also Feghouli or Vela?

    57. Hello,

      thanks for your time and effort for these guides!

      I just started playing and i only have 13k, from which league should i make my starter squad? Also, is it the best to stick with 1 league? Otherwise i can imagine it costs you alot of money when you need to switch to another league because there are better players over there.


    58. Hi,Rodrigo
      Can you built me a 300k liga bbva starting 11 squad?
      As for formations I am not sure so I leave it to your judgment.

        1. Thanks a lot. Which team with unlimited budget do you think is the best? BBVA OR Premier League?

    59. Hi, great guides you’ve made! I’ve been reading the BPL and serie A too for the lower budget squads. I was wondering if you could tell me which league is the best to start. I only have 7k now, so I just started playing. Is it the best to stick with one competition? I can imagine it will be expensive if you start in the serie A and need to change to BPL because there are better players over there. Im still doubting which competition to start, dont want to make a big mistake now :l

    60. Hi Rodrigo
      I’m currently playing with a bbva Team using 4-3-3(4) formation:
      Diego lopes
      Was thinking about using griezmann as a cam or is it better isco for that position

        1. thanks for the team.
          u would recommend turan over fehouli and vela though?
          also i meant a site for current pc prices.

          1. It depends of your play style. If you don’t need someone fast, use Turan.
            FUTBin was good for PC prices but it is not working any more. Don’t know any other reliable website with PC prices.

    61. hey rodrigo,
      is there any site for current fifa 16 prices like futbin is for xbox one and ps4?

    62. Hi, and what a great guide! I only have one question. I have 1.5m coins, messi or ronaldo? I will never be able to afford both so have to choose. Btw, working on the “unlimited” squad you suggested. (Exept one of the superstars) hehe.

    63. Azinuddin Karim

      Hi Rodrigo,

      I have this team now in a 433(2) following your guide:

      Danilo Inago Abdennour Gaya
      Parejo Krychow Perez
      Feghouli Amrabat Konoplyanka

      Whats should be the 2 most important upgrades for me to consider next? CB, CM, ST or another position?


      1. Probably CB (Pepe, for example) and ST. However, if you don’t have enough coins to buy a good striker, like Jackson Martinez, then you may try Koke because he is cheap and will be a good addition to your midfield.

    64. How about using Rodriguez as a striker, using position change cards?
      He has good shooting stats

          1. Hi.
            Thank you for sharing your team through the Web App.
            Your team is great but if I was you, there are two things I would like to do:
            1) Apply a ST-CF and then CF-CAM to James. Even reaching team’s chemistry 100, you need to get good individual chemistry and he doesn’t.
            2) Replace Piqué for Ramos. He will be a good addition to your defence.

    65. Great article, I love these league guides.

      Here’s my BBVA squad for the moment, I like Raul Garcia better than Parejo, he’s better in every stat except passing.

      I’d like to add Lacazette, but he messes up the chemistry, could I use him as a sub without affecting the chem?


        1. Cheers!

          Lacazette looks like a beast, great stats for a cheap price.

          I was not sure about the chemistry thing, searching the net gave me mixed answers.

    66. Hey Rodrigo. Nice article. I have the following team (4-1-2-1-2):
      I’m struggling with the top 3. I like Amrabat, but Torres and Banega don’t complete to convince me. Any suggestion? I though swaping Banega for Koke and Torres for Rodrigo. What do you think? I can not afford James or Jackson yet.

    67. Which league gives you the best squad for an approximately 200K budget? BBVA or BPL?

    68. Hi,my team is the following
      Danilo Mathieu Pepe Alba
      Rakatic Isco
      Martinez Griezmann

      I’m gonna trade up for Dani Alves,where would be the next place you traded up?i was thinking Modric in for Isco.

          1. In my opinion, IF cards are not good value for money. They are too expensive for the small improvement.
            However, if you have many coins, that card will be the best CDM in the Liga BBVA for the coming months.

            1. I picked him up for less than 30k so I don’t think he’s too expensive,when do you think the prices in players will drop?iv managed to trade a bit of cash through selling my players at a 10-15% profit when I’m not playing the game and buying them back but other than daily fluctuation the majority of prices have stayed the same (some going slightly up or down).Do you think there will be a big price drop soon?or just when toty cards get released?

            2. OK, in that case you have the best CDM playing on Liga BBVA.
              Except for the top players, prices are going down. It is expected a bigger price drop in FUTUnited (November), Black Friday (last week of November) and Xmas (16Dec-2Jan). And TOTY, of course.

    69. Thanks rodrigo for nice suggestions….I havent tried Krychowiak yet…. will do soon….
      I think Oblak is far better than others….. except Diego Alves

    70. What do you think about my squad
      Diego alves
      Lichtenstainer-juan jesus-pepe-tremoulinas
      Parolo-alvaro pereryra-enzo perez

    71. Great work as always.

      When will you be releasing a Serie A guide?

      I am currently playing with a Serie A team of

      Lichtensteiner Chiellini Barzagli Alex Sandro
      Nainggolan Marchisio
      IF Insigne IF Bacca Cuadrado

    72. Great job with this guide but in the future do you mind changing formations to which is best for the league and budget

      1. Yeah I agree, for example you could get rid of the CDM and Jackson Martinez to put in Iniesta and Modric

      2. Hi. Thank you.
        We use these three formations because they are the most popular ones. In that way, we are covering as much people we can.
        Besides that, this is a guide to analyse players. As we always says, formation should be decided according your play style and preferences, and not based in a league.
        We appreciate your suggestion but we will not add more/other formations to future guides. However, we will add to our ‘to-do list’ an article about the best formations for each league.

        1. i understand and btw the best formations for each league sounds great do you have any idea which would be the best formation for the liga bbva and bpl I’m thinking of making one of those teams and i can adjust
          my playstyle so don’t worry about that (just as long as its not a formation with 5 at the back or 3 at the back with the acception of the 352)

    73. Hi Rodrigo

      at the moment I have a liga bbva team in 41212 of
      Sts-Aduriz (I like to have an areal threat) and Amrabat
      Cam- Kobe
      Cdm- Krychowiak
      Lm- Piatti
      Rm- Feghouli
      Cbs- abdennour, mustafi
      Rb- danilo
      Lb- filipe luiz
      Gk- diego alves
      How can I improve this squad with players of the same price as the players above? Thanks!

      1. Great cheap squad! You can not improve it much more without spending more coins.
        We just have one suggestion: Iñigo Martinez instead of Mustafi. He is slightly expensive, but he is a really good value for money.

        1. Hi Rodrigo,
          I have upgraded to this team and changed formation to 4231 wide:
          Cam: koke
          Rm/lm: feghouli/piatti
          Cdms: Krychowiak/Nzonz
          Lb/rb:filipe luis/danilo
          Cbs:abdennour/ mathieu
          Gk: diego alves
          When I get more coins which positions would be best to improve and with which players?
          Thanks in advance!
