Introduction to the FUT 15 Ligue 1 Guide

 

Building a team is the biggest challenge in FIFA 15 Ultimate Team. It doesn’t need to be the best team, even because the budget may not allow it, but it needs to be the player’s stature for him to obtain success.

When choosing which players to play with, you will have to look carefully at their attributes. Choosing a team based on ratings is one of the most common mistakes on FUT 15. It’s precisely this aspect that this guide focuses on. For each position, and focusing on the truly important attributes, we’ll show who are the best athletes to choose.

It’s also important that the player checks to see if the player he chooses fits the formations he likes to play in. For example, a good full back will be useless if the player only uses formations with three defenders. According to those formations, the player must be cautious to look at the work rates, trying 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 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 gathering players of the same nationality, while others decide to form a team of players from the same league. The most popular league is the Barclays Premier League. There are also more experienced players that can form hybrid teams without damaging the chemistry a lot.

All of these steps are necessary to have; it could be that the team is not always well built as it could’ve been. This article aims to help those that think or want to form a FIFA 15 Ultimate Team based on players from the Ligue 1. Even the ones have one, could take out some valuable conclusion from this guide that could help turn your team even better.

It’s important that the readers understand that this guide is simply guidance. It’s a theme too vast and the player’s combinations are almost infinite. Besides, there are various factors that influence the choices, like it’s 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 some criteria we chose and should be of everyone’s knowledge:

  • Only Gold Players
    • In this guide we didn’t consider silver or bronze player. Most players don’t assume them to be a better option than gold players, so to simplify the guide’s analysis we didn’t include them. In the future we may come to publish guides exclusively talking about these 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 Ligue 1 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 Ligue 1 teams are suggested, the prices considered are the ones of December 2014. It’s natural that the prices have suffered some oscillations throughout the season, so they should only be considered as guiding prices.

     
     
     
     
     

     
     
     
     
     

    FUT 15 Ligue 1 Goalkeepers (GK)

     

    Goalkeepers are the players that are less used on field. Because of this they are also the disdained 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. It’s good investment because they’re normally the most economically accessible players.

    Sirigu is the most popular goalkeeper of this league.

     

    MOST HIGH-RATED GOALKEEPERS
    Salvatore Sirigu 84 PSG Italy
    Stéphane Ruffier 83 Saint-Etienne France
    Steve Mandanda 82 Marseille France
    Cédric Carrasso 81 Bordeaux France
    Vincent Enyeama 80 LOSC Lille Nigeria
    Benoît Costil 78 Stade Rennais France
    Maarten Stekelenburg 77 AS Monaco Netherlands
    Kossi Agassa 77 Stade Reims Togo
    Danijel Subašić 76 AS Monaco Croatia
    Anthony Lopes 76 Olympique Lyon Portugal


     

    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.

    Enyeama is the goalkeeper with best reflexes in the world. Nobody is better than him.

     

    GOALKEEPERS WITH BEST REFLEXES
    Vincent Enyeama 90 LOSC Lille Nigeria
    Salvatore Sirigu 87 PSG Italy
    Stéphane Ruffier 86 Saint-Etienne France
    Benoît Costil 83 Stade Rennais France
    Anthony Lopes 83 Olympique Lyon Portugal
    Steve Mandanda 82 Marseille France
    Cédric Carrasso 82 Bordeaux France
    Kossi Agassa 79 Stade Reims Togo
    Maarten Stekelenburg 78 AS Monaco Netherlands
    Danijel Subašić 76 AS Monaco Croatia


     

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

    The three goalkeepers with higher rating are also the ones with better diving.

    GOALKEEPER WITH BEST DIVING
    Salvatore Sirigu 85 PSG Italy
    Steve Mandanda 83 Marseille France
    Stéphane Ruffier 82 Saint-Etienne France
    Maarten Stekelenburg 80 AS Monaco Netherlands
    Benoît Costil 78 Stade Rennais France
    Anthony Lopes 78 Olympique Lyon Portugal
    Cédric Carrasso 78 Bordeaux France
    Vincent Enyeama 77 LOSC Lille Nigeria
    Kossi Agassa 77 Stade Reims Togo
    Danijel Subašić 76 AS Monaco Croatia


     

    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.

    Stekelenburg is clearly the tallest goalkeeper playing in Ligue 1.

     

    TALLEST GOALKEEPERS
    Maarten Stekelenburg 197 AS Monaco Netherlands
    Salvatore Sirigu 192 PSG Italy
    Danijel Subašić 191 AS Monaco Croatia
    Kossi Agassa 190 Stade Reims Togo
    Stéphane Ruffier 188 Saint-Etienne France
    Cédric Carrasso 187 Bordeaux France
    Benoît Costil 187 Stade Rennais France
    Steve Mandanda 185 Marseille France
    Anthony Lopes 184 Olympique Lyon Portugal
    Vincent Enyeama 182 LOSC Lille Nigeria


     

    The choice for the best Ligue 1 goalkeeper on FIFA 15 Ultimate team, is extremely easy.

    In our opinion, Salvatore Sirigu is the best choice. Besides being the best in diving, he’s also who has the best positioning and he is the second tallest goalkeeper from Ligue 1. For us, Stéphane Ruffier is the best alternative to the French Champion. Steve Mandanda and Enyema are also good goalkeeper but they are much shorter.

    FUT 15 Ligue 1 Central Backs (CB)

     

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

    The two centre backs from the Brazil National Team are the best Ligue 1 players playing in this position.
     

    HIGHEST RATED CENTRAL BACKS
    Thiago Silva 87 PSG Brazil
    David Luiz 82 PSG Brazil
    Loïc Perrin 80 Saint-Etienne France
    Simon Kjær 80 LOSC Lille Denmark
    Marko Baša 80 LOSC Lille Montenegro
    Aymen Abdennour 80 AS Monaco Tunisia
    Nicolas Nkoulou 79 Marseille Cameroon
    Ricardo Carvalho 77 AS Monaco Portugal
    Hilton 77 Montpellier HSC Brazil
    Papy Mison Djilobodji 77 FC Nantes Senegal
    Milan Biševac 77 Olympique Lyon Serbia
    Marquinhos 77 PSG Brazil
    Samuel Umtiti 76 Olympique Lyon France
    Lamine Sané 76 Bordeaux Senegal
    Moustapha Sall 76 Saint-Etienne Senegal


     

    On a central back, two attributes assume particular importance on their performance: defending and heading.

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

    Thiago Silva is the player with best defending stat in the world.

     

    CENTRAL BACKS WITH BEST DEFENDING
    Thiago Silva 90 PSG Brazil
    Loïc Perrin 83 Saint-Etienne France
    Simon Kjær 82 LOSC Lille Denmark
    Marko Baša 81 LOSC Lille Montenegro
    David Luiz 80 PSG Brazil
    Aymen Abdennour 80 AS Monaco Tunisia
    Nicolas Nkoulou 80 Marseille Cameroon
    Marquinhos 80 PSG Brazil
    Milan Biševac 79 Olympique Lyon Serbia
    Hilton 78 Montpellier HSC Brazil
    Ricardo Carvalho 78 AS Monaco Portugal
    Moustapha Sall 78 Saint-Etienne Senegal
    Christophe Kerbrat 78 EA Guingamp France
    Samuel Umtiti 77 Olympique Lyon France
    Mexer 77 Stade Rennais Mozambique


     

    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.

    Aymen Abdennour is the centre back with best physical in Ligue 1.

     

    CENTRAL BACKS WITH BEST PHYSICAL
    Aymen Abdennour 86 AS Monaco Tunisia
    Moustapha Sall 85 Saint-Etienne Senegal
    Papy Mison Djilobodji 84 FC Nantes Senegal
    Oswaldo Vizcarrondo 82 FC Nantes Venezuela
    Lamine Sané 81 Bordeaux Senegal
    Thiago Silva 80 PSG Brazil
    Milan Biševac 80 Olympique Lyon Serbia
    Samuel Umtiti 79 Olympique Lyon France
    Christophe Kerbrat 79 EA Guingamp France
    Jean-Armel Kana-Biyik 79 Stade Rennais Cameroon
    David Luiz 78 PSG Brazil
    Marko Baša 78 LOSC Lille Montenegro
    Simon Kjær 78 LOSC Lille Denmark
    Loïc Perrin 76 Saint-Etienne France
    Nicolas Nkoulou 75 Marseille Cameroon


     

    Defending and heading may be useless against fast opponents. It’s necessary to fight fire with fire. No 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.

    Only Marquinhos and Nkoulou are faster than David Luiz and Thiago Silva.

     

    CENTRAL BACKS WITH BEST PACE
    Nicolas Nkoulou 79 Marseille Cameroon
    Marquinhos 79 PSG Brazil
    Thiago Silva 78 PSG Brazil
    David Luiz 77 PSG Brazil
    Samuel Umtiti 74 Olympique Lyon France
    Christophe Kerbrat 74 EA Guingamp France
    Papy Mison Djilobodji 73 FC Nantes Senegal
    Aymen Abdennour 72 AS Monaco Tunisia
    Loïc Perrin 71 Saint-Etienne France
    Lamine Sané 71 Bordeaux Senegal
    Jean-Armel Kana-Biyik 70 Stade Rennais Cameroon
    Mexer 69 Stade Rennais Mozambique
    Simon Kjær 66 LOSC Lille Denmark
    Marko Baša 65 LOSC Lille Montenegro
    Hilton 61 Montpellier HSC Brazil


     

    Thiago Silva intercepts everything that is at his reach. He is one of the fastest central backs of the world. He has his room in any team.

    David Luiz is our second choice. He looks like Thiago Silva but with a much worse defensive stat and work rate. Aymen Abdennour is our cheap alternative.

    FUT 15 Ligue 1 Right Backs (RB and RWB)

     

    Full backs have the role of troubling the mission of the wingers. Not only. In addition, good full backs also support their team mates on offensive maneuvers.

    There is no popular right back playing in Ligue 1.

     

    HIGHEST RATED RIGHT BACKS
    Gregory van der Wiel 77 PSG Netherlands
    Serge Aurier 77 PSG Ivory Coast
    Aïssa Mandi 75 Stade Reims Algeria
    Christophe Jallet 75 Olympique Lyon France
    Sébastien Corchia 75 LOSC Lille France
    François Clerc 75 Saint-Etienne France


     

    There are very important attributes in any right back: defending and pace.

    Since they’re defenders they should have good defending capacities. This reduces a team’s risk of conceding.

    The right backs playing in Ligue 1 are very balanced, even in defending stat.

     

    RIGHT BACKS WITH BEST DEFENDING
    Serge Aurier 76 PSG Ivory Coast
    Aïssa Mandi 75 Stade Reims Algeria
    François Clerc 75 Saint-Etienne France
    Christophe Jallet 74 Olympique Lyon France
    Gregory van der Wiel 73 PSG Netherlands
    Sébastien Corchia 73 LOSC Lille France


     

    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.

    Gregory van der Wiel and Serge Aurier are the only fast right backs playing in Ligue 1.

     

    RIGHT BACKS WITH BEST PACE
    Gregory van der Wiel 85 PSG Netherlands
    Serge Aurier 83 PSG Ivory Coast
    Sébastien Corchia 77 LOSC Lille France
    Aïssa Mandi 75 Stade Reims Algeria
    Christophe Jallet 74 Olympique Lyon France
    François Clerc 71 Saint-Etienne France


     

    Serge Aurier is undoubtedly the best right back playing on Ligue 1. He has the best shooting, dribbling, defending and physical stats. Gregory van der Wiel is the best alternative to him. Sébastien Corchia is our economic choice.

    Best FUT 15 Ligue 1 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 on the team’s offensive manoeuvres.

    Maxwell is probably the left back most popular playing in Ligue 1.

     

    HIGHEST RATED LEFT BACKS
    Maxwell 77 PSG Brazil
    Layvin Kurzawa 76 AS Monaco France
    Lucas Digne 76 PSG France
    Henri Bedimo 76 Olympique Lyon Cameroon


     
     

    There is no much difference between the way how the left backs from Ligue 1 defend.

     

    LEFT BACKS WITH BEST DEFENDING
    Maxwell 75 PSG Brazil
    Layvin Kurzawa 75 AS Monaco France
    Lucas Digne 74 PSG France
    Henri Bedimo 74 Olympique Lyon Cameroon


     
     

    Bedimo is the fastest left back playing in France.

     

    LEFT BACKS WITH BEST PACE
    Henri Bedimo 82 Olympique Lyon Cameroon
    Lucas Digne 80 PSG France
    Layvin Kurzawa 79 AS Monaco France
    Maxwell 74 PSG Brazil


     

    Our favourite to play in the left side of the defence is Henri Bedimo. Maxwell is better in four of the six main attributes, but the Lyon’s player is faster, defends almost as well and is great in other important stats like strength, stamina and aggression.

    Best FUT 15 Ligue 1 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.

    Toulalan, Matuidi and Thiago Motta are the three most popular CDM playing in Ligue 1.

     

    HIGHEST RATED CENTRAL DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDERS
    Jérémy Toulalan 83 AS Monaco France
    Blaise Matuidi 83 PSG France
    Thiago Motta 82 PSG Italy
    Rio Antonio Mavuba 81 LOSC Lille France
    Maxime Gonalons 80 Olympique Lyon France
    Jérémy Clément 77 Saint-Etienne France
    Grégory Sertic 76 Bordeaux Croatia
    Idrissa Gueye 76 LOSC Lille Senegal
    Didier Digard 76 OGC Nice France
    Alaixys Romao 75 Marseille Togo


     

    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 on 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 a 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.

    Matuidi is the CDM who has the best defensive skills in Ligue 1.

     

    CENTRAL DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDERS WITH BEST DEFENDING
    Blaise Matuidi 84 PSG France
    Maxime Gonalons 80 Olympique Lyon France
    Jérémy Toulalan 79 AS Monaco France
    Jérémy Clément 79 Saint-Etienne France
    Thiago Motta 78 PSG Italy
    Rio Antonio Mavuba 78 LOSC Lille France
    Idrissa Gueye 75 LOSC Lille Senegal
    Didier Digard 75 OGC Nice France
    Grégory Sertic 73 Bordeaux Croatia
    Alaixys Romao 72 Marseille Togo


     

    The area of the field occupied by the central defensive midfielders is the one where most ball dispute happen. Strong players will have a higher probability of winning the ball.

    There are four Ligue 1 defensive midfielders with better physical than Matudi.

     

    CENTRAL DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDERS WITH BEST PHYSICAL
    Alaixys Romao 85 Marseille Togo
    Thiago Motta 84 PSG Italy
    Geoffrey Kondogbia 84 AS Monaco France
    Maxime Gonalons 83 Olympique Lyon France
    Blaise Matuidi 82 PSG France
    Jérémy Toulalan 82 AS Monaco France
    Didier Digard 80 OGC Nice France
    Rio Antonio Mavuba 78 LOSC Lille France
    Jérémy Clément 77 Saint-Etienne France
    Grégory Sertic 76 Bordeaux Croatia


     

    Blaise Matuidi is our first choice for this position. He is not only the fastest and who has the best defending and dribbling stats. He is a very balanced player with an amazing stamina (95) and a good work rate to play everywhere.

    Toulalan and Thiago Motta are too slow. We prefer Maxime Gonalons, our economic choice.

    Best FUT 15 Ligue 1 Central Midfielders (CM e CAM)

     

    A lot of games are decided on 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 are just a few centre midfielders playing in Ligue 1. João Moutinho is the most popular one.

     

    HIGHEST RATED CENTRAL MIDFIELDERS
    João Moutinho 83 AS Monaco Portugal
    Yohan Cabaye 81 PSG France
    Marco Verratti 80 PSG Italy
    Javier Pastore 79 PSG Argentina
    Clément Grenier 77 Olympique Lyon France
    Yoann Gourcuff 77 Olympique Lyon France
    Florent Balmont 76 LOSC Lille France
    Gueïda Fofana 75 Olympique Lyon France
    Etienne Didot 75 Toulouse FC France
    Renaud Cohade 75 Saint-Etienne France
    Clément Chantôme 75 PSG France


     

    Central midfielders are responsible for discovering lines that break the opponents defence. Their passing quality has to be really good so they can assist forwards.

    João Moutinho, Cabaye and Pastore are the three Ligue 1 midfielders with best passing skills.

     

    CENTRAL MIDFIELDERS WITH BEST PASSING
    João Moutinho 83 AS Monaco Portugal
    Yohan Cabaye 82 PSG France
    Javier Pastore 81 PSG Argentina
    Clément Grenier 81 Olympique Lyon France
    Marco Verratti 80 PSG Italy
    Yoann Gourcuff 80 Olympique Lyon France
    Florent Balmont 78 LOSC Lille France
    Etienne Didot 78 Toulouse FC France
    Renaud Cohade 77 Saint-Etienne France
    Clément Chantôme 77 PSG France
    Gueïda Fofana 69 Olympique Lyon France


     

    As it happens with passing, on dribbling Pastore and Moutinho are again in the top 3.

     

    CENTRAL MIDFIELDERS WITH BEST DRIBBLING
    Marco Verratti 84 PSG Italy
    Javier Pastore 83 PSG Argentina
    João Moutinho 82 AS Monaco Portugal
    Clément Grenier 79 Olympique Lyon France
    Yohan Cabaye 78 PSG France
    Yoann Gourcuff 78 Olympique Lyon France
    Florent Balmont 75 LOSC Lille France
    Renaud Cohade 75 Saint-Etienne France
    Clément Chantôme 73 PSG France
    Etienne Didot 72 Toulouse FC France
    Gueïda Fofana 71 Olympique Lyon France


     

    João Moutinho is for us the best centre midfielder of Ligue 1. He has a great stamina (91) and he is the best one in pace and passing. Cabaye is our second choice. He is fast, has a good dribbling and good passing but, just like the Portuguese player, he is too weak. Verratti is our economic choice.

    Best FUT 15 Ligue 1 Right Wingers (RM, RW e RF)

     

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

    Lucas is the only right winger from Ligue 1 with good international reputation.

     

    HIGHEST RATED RIGHT WINGERS
    Lucas 82 PSG Brazil
    Romain Hamouma 78 Saint-Etienne France
    Florian Thauvin 77 Marseille France
    Kamil Grosicki 76 Stade Rennais Poland
    Daniel Wass 75 Evian Thonon FC Denmark
    Lucas Ocampos 75 AS Monaco Argentina
    Yann Jouffre 75 FC Lorient France


     

    There are three fundamental attribute on 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 through sprints on the side lines.

    Lucas is a player really really fast.

     

    FASTEST RIGHT WINGERS
    Lucas 93 PSG Brazil
    Kamil Grosicki 89 Stade Rennais Poland
    Romain Hamouma 84 Saint-Etienne France
    Florian Thauvin 83 Marseille France
    Lucas Ocampos 80 AS Monaco Argentina
    Daniel Wass 77 Evian Thonon FC Denmark
    Yann Jouffre 74 FC Lorient France


     

    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.

    If Lucas’ pace was not enough, his dribbling should be enough to convince any one to use him.

     

    RIGHT WINGERS WITH BEST DRIBLLING
    Lucas 87 PSG Brazil
    Romain Hamouma 80 Saint-Etienne France
    Florian Thauvin 79 Marseille France
    Lucas Ocampos 77 AS Monaco Argentina
    Kamil Grosicki 76 Stade Rennais Poland
    Yann Jouffre 75 FC Lorient France
    Daniel Wass 73 Evian Thonon FC Denmark


     

    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.

    And the player with best passing skills is… Lucas.

     

    RIGHT WINGERS WITH BEST PASSING
    Lucas 76 PSG Brazil
    Yann Jouffre 76 FC Lorient France
    Romain Hamouma 75 Saint-Etienne France
    Daniel Wass 75 Evian Thonon FC Denmark
    Florian Thauvin 74 Marseille France
    Lucas Ocampos 74 AS Monaco Argentina
    Kamil Grosicki 71 Stade Rennais Poland


     

    To us and probably to everyone, it is extremely easy to choose the best right winger from Ligue 1: Lucas. The Brazilian player is the best one in all the most important attributes. Romain Hamouma is our economic choice. He is cheaper than Florian Thauvin and better than him in all the six basic attributes.

    Best Ligue 1 Left Wingers (LM, LW e LF)

     

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

    Lavezzi is the most popular left winger playing in Ligue 1.

     

    HIGHEST RATED LEFT WINGERS
    Ezequiel Lavezzi 82 PSG Argentina
    Dimitri Payet 78 Marseille France
    André Ayew 78 Marseille Ghana
    Yohan Mollo 76 Saint-Etienne France
    Romain Alessandrini 76 Marseille France
    Franck Tabanou 75 Saint-Etienne France
    Divock Origi 75 LOSC Lille Belgium
    Wahbi Khazri 75 Bordeaux Tunisia
    Serge Gakpé 75 FC Nantes Togo


     
     

    Alessandrini and Gakpé are both even faster than Lavezzi.

    Serge Gakpé 69 FC Nantes Togo
    Divock Origi 67 LOSC Lille Belgium


     

    Ezequiel Lavezzi is the best left winger of Ligue 1. For those that don’t want to pay so many coins for the PSG’s winger, Romain Alessandrini is a good alternative. Ayew is not as fast as Alessandrini or Gakpé but he is better in almost everything else, including strength, stamina and aggression, reason why he is our economic choice.

    Best Ligue 1 Forwards (CF e ST)

     

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

    Ibrahimovic is the biggest name of Ligue 1.

     

    HIGHEST RATED FORWARDS
    Zlatan Ibrahimović 90 PSG Sweden
    Edinson Cavani 86 PSG Uruguay
    Dimitar Berbatov 81 AS Monaco Bulgaria
    Alexandre Lacazette 79 Olympique Lyon France

    Cheick Diabaté 75 Bordeaux Mali
    Darío Cvitanich 75 OGC Nice Argentina
    Martin Braithwaite 75 Toulouse FC Denmark
    Lucas Barrios 75 Montpellier HSC 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.

    Only Cristiano Ronaldo has better shooting than Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

     

    FORWARDS WITH BEST SHOOTING
    Zlatan Ibrahimović 91 PSG Sweden
    Edinson Cavani 85 PSG Uruguay
    Dimitar Berbatov 82 AS Monaco Bulgaria

    Darío Cvitanich 75 OGC Nice Argentina
    Cheick Diabaté 75 Bordeaux Mali
    Martin Braithwaite 74 Toulouse FC Denmark
    Lucas Barrios 74 Montpellier HSC 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.

    Once again, Ibra is the player with best physical.

     

    FORWARDS WITH BEST PHYSICAL
    Zlatan Ibrahimović 86 PSG Sweden

    Michy Batshuayi 67 Marseille Belgium
    Valère Germain 65 AS Monaco France
    Dimitar Berbatov 62 AS Monaco Bulgaria
    Wissam Ben Yedder 59 Toulouse FC France


     

    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.

    This is the weakest point of Ibrahimovic. Six other strikers are faster than him.

     

    FORWARDS WITH BEST PACE
    Martin Braithwaite 89 Toulouse FC Denmark
    Alexandre Lacazette 87 Olympique Lyon France

    There is a top forward on Ligue 1: Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Swedish player is the best forward of this league. He is the one with better shooting, passing, dribbling, physical, ball control, shooting power, strength, long shooting, skills…

    If you don’t have enough coins to buy him, you may try Cavani. In previous years he had a bad work rate but now things are much better. Our economic choice is Alexandre Lacazette.

    Ligue 1 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 player based on their role and style of play that fits each player. And that is made in the previous chapters. 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 25k budget and 4-4-2 with a 5k budget.

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

      Sirigu is still the best Ligue 1 goalkeeper. He links very well with David Luiz and Thiago Silva, which is great if you are thinking to build a hybrid squad. Bedimo and Aurier ae the other two defenders.

      In Ligue 1, there is no one as good to keep the defence well protected as Matuidi. He is the player with higher stamina in the game. For the next position, João Moutinho is the most balanced player.

      On the wings, the team have two great players for affordable prices: Lucas and Lavezzi. In this league, no one can be compared with them.

      If your budget allows you, of course, Ibrahimovic and Cavani are the obvious choices for the attack line. For lower budgets, Lacazette 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.

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

      Ruffier is the number two in the best Ligue 1 goalkeepers list. Abdenhour is, in our opinion, the third defender of this league but his work rates
      are not good to play with David Luiz, and for that reason we have chosen Nkoulou to take the Thiago’s spot. The fullbacks are cheap enough to be kept in the team.

      The central midfield position has to be Matuidi. The French player builds up the first barrier between your goal line and the opponent, making his defensiveness and physicality count. João Moutinho and Cabaye complete the midfield.

      While Lucas beats the concurrence on the right wing, Lavezzi do it in the opposite side.

      Over the attack line, Cavani is a great choice, especially now that he has decent work rates.

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

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

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

      Nkoulou is probably the ‘bets value for money’ you will ever find in Ligue 1. Umtiti, Kurzawa and Corchia are the three other defenders.

      On the midfield, Gonalons and Verratti complete each other well. The first one is a defensive midfielder, and the second is a young player that’s usually more advanced and is used to assisting his colleagues. Hamouma and Ayew, another player that it is very cheap, fill the wings in order to assist Traoré and Batshuayi.

    1. Do you think IF Toulanlan is much better than Mangala as his price suggests? Is he worth the number of coins?
      Who do you think would be a better pairing with Koscielny?

      1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

        No. As you can see here, IF cards are not good value for money. For me, Mangala is better. He is good to play with Koscielny.

    2. Hi there, I’m trying to make a ligue 1 team.
      For a 4-1-2-1 (2) formation who would you prefer at CAM
      2nd In-form Payet (CAM 81) or IF Pastore (CM 81)?
      and do you think payet is better value for money considering their current price ranges?
      Many thanks 🙂

        1. would you recommend any other players over payet for that position in ligue 1 or who are french? (other than say, pogba, matuidi, cabaye?)

        The unlimited budget one but with J. Moutinho as CDM and Cavani as CAM.

    9. Great guide Rodrigo, I had almost exactly same team.

      Only two differences, both on the bench: I had Loic Perrin instead of Nkoulou. Nkoulou is much faster, but Perrin is better at tackling, interceptions, marking and heading.

      And it was difficult to pick between Ayew and Alessandrini. Ayew has much better stamina also better passing stats although Alessandrini has decent crossing. I went with Alessandrini because a winger has to be fast, unlike a centre back where I prefer defending and physical over pace. Alessandrini also is better at skills and weak foot, which is important to me since I tend to go inside with the wingers.
