Liga BBVA Squad Guide for FIFA 14 Ultimate Team


Check out the review we made about the players from Liga BBVA, the main spanish football league.


Building a FIFA 13 Ultimate Team Liga BBVA Squad


FIFA 13 Ultimate Team is mainly based on building a good squad. But that’s not easy. Firstly, we have to choose a tactic for us to get adapted with. Then, we choose the players we want to hire according to the attributes that we consider important and how they can fit into our tactic. And, at last, we have to make everything that is possible to get a high chemistry.

To make this last step easier, most players start defining what kind of squad they’re going to build. Some choose to get players with the same nationality (brazilian squads are the most common), while others prefer to build one with players from the same league. There are also more experienced players that can build hybrid squads without prejudicing the chemistry too much.

However, we all feel some disorientation when we start building our squad. This article intends to help those who think about or intend to build a FIFA 13 Ultimate Team squad based in Liga BBVA players.

Obviously this article is merely guiding. It’s about an extremely vast theme in which player combinations are almost infinite. Besides that, there are lots of factors that influence the players’ choices, such as each one’s playing style, tactic, budget, preferred clubs or even the time spent playing. There’s also an uncertainty component: a good player for you may not be good for the other players. If there was a certain best squad, everyone would struggle to have it. Part of the FIFA 13 Ultimate Team joke is this: each one has his own club and players.


Liga BBVA and FIFA 13 Ultimate Team


The main football competition of Spain is considered the greatest league of the world. Started in 1929, La Liga is disputed by 20 clubs, of which Real Madrid has won 32 times and Barcelona 21 times.

By the high quality of the players in this league, it’s natural that this is one of the most represented league on FUT 13 squads. Also because of that, the practiced prices are extremely high (not as much as the Barclays PL). If you’re thinking of building a Liga BBVA squad, it’d be good that you had a fat wallet.

In relation to FIFA 12 Ultimate Team, FUT 13 lost some good players that used to play on Spanish League. Javi Martinez, Salvio, Afellay, Keita, Santi Cazorla, Diarra, Sahin, Granero and Altintop are good examples for that, but the biggest loss was actually Van Nistelrooy who has retired.

Although, the Liga BBVA got some massive signings in FIFA 13 Ultimate Team, too: Song, Saviola, Roque Santa Cruz, Essien, Modric, Cissokho e João Pereira.

As you can see, there are lots of quality choices. However, having a higher overall doesn’t mean that the player is better. It is necessary to analyze their attributes.

In this article we will analyze only the regular players, since the IF ones are extremely expensive and should be used only for an esthetic matter in most cases when the player has a lot of coins left.


To make the analysis easier, let’s consider six groups of players:

  • Goalkeeper (GK);
  • Central Back (CB);
  • Lateral Backs (RB, RWB, LB e LWB);
  • Central Midfielders (CDM, CM e CAM);
  • Medium Wingers (RM, RW, RF, LM, LW e LF);
  • and Attackers (CF e ST).

Let’s get going!


Liga BBVA’s Goalkeepers (GK)


Many players start their signings with an attaker. Then improve the midfield, the defense and, lastly, the goal. The truth is that having a good goalkeeper will make a difference several times for winning a match. And usually the investiment is not that significant.

The most wanted goalkeepers are Casillas, his rival Vistor Váldes, the brazilian Diego Alves and Diego López. They are the ones that have the best rating and also because of that are the most expensive ones.


Casillas 89 Spain Real Madrid
Victor Valdés 85 Spain FC Barcelona
Diego Alves 82 Brazil Valencia CF
Diego López 82 Spain Sevilla FC
Thibaut Courtois 79 Belgium Atlético de Madrid
Iraizoz 79 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao
Guaita 79 Spain Valencia CF
Roberto 79 Spain Real Zaragoza
Claudio Bravo 78 Chile Real Sociedad
Carlos Idriss Kameni 78 Cameroon Málaga CF
Sergio Asenjo 74 Spain Atlético de Madrid
Palop 74 Spain Sevilla FC
Joel 73 Spain Atlético de Madrid
Codina 73 Spain Getafe CF
Adán 73 Spain Real Madrid
Marc Martínez 61 Spain RC Deportivo
Villanueva 61 Spain Real Valladolid
Yeray 60 Spain RCD Mallorca


Although, the best overall doesn’t necessarily mean the best choice. There are two fundamental attributes for a good goalkeeper: reflexes and diving.

The first one measures the keeper’s agility when performing a defense. In this particularity, Madrid’s goalkeeper is the best among the others. Highlights also for Diego Alves for being one of those that have the best reflexes.


Casillas 92 Spain Real Madrid
Diego Alves 90 Brazil Valencia CF
Guaita 86 Spain Valencia CF
Carlos Idriss Kameni 86 Cameroon Málaga CF
Roberto 85 Spain Real Zaragoza
Dudu Aouate 85 Israel RCD Mallorca
Victor Valdés 84 Spain FC Barcelona
Andrés Fernández 84 Spain CA Osasuna
Claudio Bravo 83 Chile Real Sociedad
Cristian Darío Álvarez 83 Argentina RCD Espanyol
Casto 81 Spain Real Betis Balompié
Codina 79 Spain Getafe CF
Roberto 79 Spain Granada CF
Keylor Navas 78 Costa Rica Levante UD
Rubén 78 Spain Rayo Vallecano


The diving measures the capacity of a goalkeeper to perform a defense in the air. Also in this important aspect, Casillas outstands on the almost opponents. Diego Alves is the exception. He is a valid choice for who wants to save coins.


Casillas 91 Spain Real Madrid
Diego Alves 91 Brazil Valencia CF
Carlos Idriss Kameni 84 Cameroon Málaga CF
Victor Valdés 83 Spain FC Barcelona
Andrés Fernández 83 Spain CA Osasuna
Javi Varas 82 Spain RC Celta de Vigo
Diego López 81 Spain Sevilla FC
Guaita 81 Spain Valencia CF
Claudio Bravo 81 Chile Real Sociedad
Dudu Aouate 81 Israel RCD Mallorca
Casto 84 Spain Real Betis Balompié
Sergio Asenjo 81 Spain Atlético de Madrid
Keylor Navas 81 Costa Rica Levante UD
Roberto 80 Spain Granada CF
Rubén 79 Spain Rayo Vallecano


There’s one more characteristic in a goalkeeper that will be able to make a difference: his height. The taller he is, the bigger will be the chances to maintain the goal inviolable. This is Casillas’ weakness. He is one of the shortest goalkeepers on the Liga BBVA, 13 centimeters away from Thibaut Courtois and from Villanueva, the tallest keepers on Spanhish League.


Thibaut Courtois 198 Belgium Atlético de Madrid
Diego López 196 Spain Sevilla FC
Roberto 192 Spain Real Zaragoza
Iraizoz 191 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao
Guaita 190 Spain Valencia CF
Diego Alves 188 Brazil Valencia CF
Dudu Aouate 188 Israel RCD Mallorca
Gustavo Munúa 187 Uruguay Levante UD
Carlos Idriss Kameni 186 Cameroon Málaga CF
Cristian Darío Álvarez 186 Argentina RCD Espanyol
Villanueva 198 Spain Real Valladolid
Raúl 196 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao
Dani Hernández 196 Venezuela Real Valladolid
Joel 195 Spain Atlético de Madrid
Yeray 192 Spain RCD Mallorca


Iker Casillas is unequivocally the best goalkeeper on Liga BBVA. He is currently considered the best goalkeeper in the world. Out of the six main attributes for a goalkeeper, he is the best on three (reflexes, diving and speed). And two of them are the most important. If you like to pass the ball back to the goalkeeper, there are many players that develop this function well, like Claudio Bravo and Dani Hernández. Victor Valdes is unbeatable in positioning and Thibaut Courtois in handling.

Obviously, Casillas isn’t available for all wallets. Victor Valdés is also an excellent goalkeeper and is worth the quarter. If you want even a cheaper alternative, choose Diego Alves. He is almost as good as Casillas in the most important attributes and defending penalties is his specialty.

Liga BBVA’s Centre Backs (CB)


A goalkeeper’s job becomes easier if quality centre backs are playing right ahead. Their role in the match is to stop the opponents from getting near the goal.

Six out of ten best central backs of the game play in the Liga BBVA. Sergio Ramos was promoted in FUT 13 to best centre back of Liga BBVA. The Portuguese Pepe and his rivals Mascherano, Piqué ans Puyol are other quality defenders from the Spanish League.


Sergio Ramos 87 Spain Real Madrid
Javier Mascherano 86 Argentina FC Barcelona
Piqué 86 Spain FC Barcelona
Puyol 86 Spain FC Barcelona
Pepe 85 Portugal Real Madrid
Adil Rami 84 France Valencia CF
Amorebieta 81 Venezuela Athletic Club de Bilbao
Raúl Albiol 81 Spain Real Madrid
Daniel Alberto Díaz 80 Argentina Atlético de Madrid
Ricardo Carvalho 80 Portugal Real Madrid
Cala 74 Spain Sevilla FC
Mikel Gonzalez 74 Spain Real Sociedad
Rafa 74 Spain Getafe CF
Álvaro González 74 Spain Real Zaragoza
Fontàs 73 Spain FC Barcelona


For a centre back, two attributes are of particular importance: defending and heading.

A player with a good defending will take the ball from the opponent and prevent him to reach the box more easily. This is Mascherano, Piqué and Puyol’s case, the three best players to perform this function. A cheaper alternative to a good defense is the french Valencia’s Adil Rami.


Javier Mascherano 87 Argentina FC Barcelona
Puyol 87 Spain FC Barcelona
Piqué 86 Spain FC Barcelona
Sergio Ramos 84 Spain Real Madrid
Pepe 84 Portugal Real Madrid
Adil Rami 84 France Valencia CF
Amorebieta 82 Venezuela Athletic Club de Bilbao
Daniel Alberto Díaz 82 Argentina Atlético de Madrid
Ballesteros 82 Spain Levante UD
Raúl Albiol 81 Spain Real Madrid
Fontàs 77 Spain FC Barcelona
Lolo 76 Spain CA Osasuna
Ansotegi 75 Spain Real Sociedad
Rafa 74 Spain Getafe CF
Raúl Rodríguez 74 Spain RCD Espanyol


Having a good heading is very important for a centre back because it allows him to win balls in the air while they’re thrown in his box. But that’s not all. Also on attacking free kicks, such as the corner, it is normal to see centre backs going into the opponent’s box to try their lucks.

In this chapter there’s a player that crushes the competitors: Sergio Ramos. He is, with a large advantage, the player who has the best heading in the Liga BBVA. In case you can’t buy one, Puyol, Ricardo Costa and Adil Rami are also very good. In the opposite way there are Mascherano and Ballesteros. Although they have excellent defendings, they have poor headings (70 and 72 respectively), so they must be players you have to avoid buying for your La Liga squad.


Sergio Ramos 88 Spain Real Madrid
Puyol 84 Spain FC Barcelona
Adil Rami 84 France Valencia CF
Ricardo Costa 84 Portugal Valencia CF
Damien Perquis 84 Poland Real Betis Balompié
Pepe 82 Portugal Real Madrid
Daniel Alberto Díaz 82 Argentina Atlético de Madrid
Lopo 82 Spain Getafe CF
Piqué 81 Spain FC Barcelona
Diego Godín 81 Uruguay Atlético de Madrid
Íñigo López 87 Spain Granada CF
Mario 79 Spain Real Betis Balompié
Álvaro González 78 Spain Real Zaragoza
Samuel 78 Spain RC Celta de Vigo
Mikel Gonzalez 77 Spain Real Sociedad


One of the commonest characteristics on centre backs that dissatisfy us players is their slowness. No one likes to feel impotent by seeing extremely fast players easily passing through our defense. That’s why the defenders’ speed is also an important factor.

Some Liga BBVA’s good centre backs are slow. Puyol, Adil Rami and even Piqué don’t exceed 62 on the speed stat. Martín Demichelis is the half of it (!). Pepe and Miranda can be good choices if speed is important to you. If money is no problem to you, bet on Sergio Ramos. He is the fastest.


Sergio Ramos 79 Spain Real Madrid
Miranda 75 Brazil Atlético de Madrid
Pepe 74 Portugal Real Madrid
Héctor Moreno 71 Mexico RCD Espanyol
Ekiza 71 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao
Miguel Flaño 69 Spain CA Osasuna
Javier Mascherano 68 Argentina FC Barcelona
Geromel 68 Brazil RCD Mallorca
Víctor Ruíz 67 Spain Valencia CF
Juan Daniel Forlin 67 Argentina RCD Espanyol
Oier 73 Spain CA Osasuna
Álvaro González 72 Spain Real Zaragoza
Cadamuro 71 Algeria Real Sociedad
Ramalho 71 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao
Cala 69 Spain Sevilla FC


Sergio Ramos is definitely the best central defender in the Liga BBVA. He is the fastest, has the best heading, the best dribbling and the best shooting. This should be enough to put him in your squad. But he’s got one problem: his prohibitive price for many players. Many players like to put a slower centre back that is more secure alongside another that compensates on speed. Depending on this factor, bet in one of these three players to be his partner in defense: Pepe for a very fast defense, Puyol for a more static element but with better defensive attributes or Piqué for a middle ground.

For limited budgets there are other quality solutions. A double of Miranda e Adil Rami guarantees a solid defense by having high attributes of defending and heading at a low price.

Liga BBVA’s Side Defenders (RB, RWB, LB, LWB)


The side defenders have the function of making the opponents’ wingers’ jobs harder. But that’s not all. Complementarily, the good side defenders also support their team’s wingers on offensive plays.

On Liga BBVA, Dani Alves found the concurrence of João Pereira and Arbeloa on the right side of the defense. On the opposite side, Marcelo, hos teamate Fábio Coentrão and Jordi Alba are the top rated ones.


Dani Alves 84 Brazil FC Barcelona
Arbeloa 80 Spain Real Madrid
João Pereira 80 Portugal Valencia CF
Iraola 78 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao
Juanfran 78 Spain Atlético de Madrid
Jesús Gámez 77 Spain Málaga CF
Cicinho 74 Brazil Sevilla FC
Damià 74 Spain CA Osasuna
Hugo Mallo 74 Spain RC Celta de Vigo


Marcelo 83 Brazil Real Madrid
Fábio Coentrão 81 Portugal Real Madrid
Jordi Alba 81 Spain FC Barcelona
Filipe Luís 79 Brazil Atlético de Madrid
Monreal 79 Spain Málaga CF
Eric Abidal 78 France FC Barcelona
Aurtenetxe 74 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao
Casado 74 Spain Rayo Vallecano
Antonio López 73 Spain RCD Mallorca


Since they are elements of the defense, in these players the defending is a central attribute. On the right side, Arbeloa is the best. On the left side, Marcelo and Abidal are who have this attribute more developed. Still, any of them stays behind the best centre backs of the Liga BBVA in this FIFA 13 Ultimate Team.


Arbeloa 82 Spain Real Madrid
Dani Alves 79 Brazil FC Barcelona
Iraola 79 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao
Juanfran 79 Spain Atlético de Madrid
Jesús Gámez 79 Spain Málaga CF
Cristian Sapunaru 78 Romania Real Zaragoza
Marc Bertrán 77 Spain CA Osasuna
Chica 77 Spain Real Betis Balompié
Allan-Roméo Nyom 76 Cameroon Granada CF


Eric Abidal 81 France FC Barcelona
Marcelo 80 Brazil Real Madrid
Fábio Coentrão 78 Portugal Real Madrid
Jordi Alba 78 Spain FC Barcelona
Filipe Luís 78 Brazil Atlético de Madrid
Jérémy Mathieu 77 France Valencia CF
Juanfran 77 Spain Levante UD
Aurtenetxe 75 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao
Antonio López 75 Spain RCD Mallorca


But a side defender shouldn’t only defend. If you like them to go to the opposite box and perform perfect crosses, then it’s interesting for you to know who does it well.

If Iraola has good crosses on the right side, on the left side Jérémy Mathieu, Marcelo and Siqueira can cross even better. Dani Alves, Jordi Alba, Monreal and Capdevilla also have a very good performance in this chapter.


Iraola 84 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao
Dani Alves 83 Brazil FC Barcelona

João Pereira 82 Portugal Valencia CF
Arbeloa 78 Spain Real Madrid
Sergio Sánchez 78 Spain Málaga CF

Jérémy Mathieu 89 France Valencia CF
Marcelo 87 Brazil Real Madrid

Monreal 84 Spain Málaga CF
Capdevila 84 Spain RCD Espanyol
Ivan Obradovic 79 Serbia Real Zaragoza
Casado 78 Spain Rayo Vallecano
Antonio López 78 Spain RCD Mallorca


A side defender is much more dynamic than a centre back because he fulfills a double mission of defense-attack and because the game tends to be faster on the wings. That’s why it’s important for them to be fast players.

There are many fast side defenders in the Liga BBVA of FIFA 13 Ultimte Team. Dani Alves exceeds 90 of pace, while Jordi Alba gets the same but on the left side. João Pereira and Juanfran are also fast players.


Dani Alves 90 Brazil FC Barcelona
João Pereira 86 Portugal Valencia CF
Juanfran 85 Spain Atlético de Madrid
Valera 78 Spain Getafe CF
Iraola 76 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao
Jesús Gámez 74 Spain Málaga CF
Nélson 89 Portugal Real Betis Balompié
Cicinho 85 Brazil Sevilla FC
Hugo Mallo 83 Spain RC Celta de Vigo


Jordi Alba 90 Spain FC Barcelona
Marcelo 83 Brazil Real Madrid
Fábio Coentrão 82 Portugal Real Madrid

Filipe Luís 81 Brazil Atlético de Madrid
Aly Cissokho 81 France Valencia CF
Brayan Angulo 84 Colombia Granada CF
Evaldo 83 Brazil RC Deportivo
Casado 82 Spain Rayo Vallecano


For the right side of your FIFA 13 Ultimate Team Spanish League squad, Dani Alves is the strongest player. He is the fastest, the second best defender and the second with the best cross. Although, he’s also very expensive. It is given more value to the offensive capacity than the defensive, so João Pereira is the right guy.

On the left side, Marcelo can be considered as a well balanced side defender. He’s fast, defends well and crosses with precision. There are others who also develop this function well, but no one as good as the brazilian. Jordi Alba is our second choice for this position.

Liga BBVA’s Midfielders (CDM, CM e CAM)


The players that play on the middle of the field are responsible for helping in the defensive aspects, but mainly for assisting the advanced players of their team. They are the ones who should study the match and define its rhythm.

Some of the best midfielders in FIFA 13 Ultimate Team play on Liga BBVA, such as Xavi, Fàbregas, Ozil, Xabi Alonso or Modric.


Xavi 90 Spain FC Barcelona
Cesc Fàbregas 87 Spain FC Barcelona
Mesut Özil 87 Germany Real Madrid
Xabi Alonso 87 Spain Real Madrid
Luka Modric 86 Croatia Real Madrid
Sergio Busquets 85 Spain FC Barcelona

Alexandre Song 83 Cameroon FC Barcelona
Jérémy Toulalan 83 France Málaga CF
André Santos 74 Portugal RC Deportivo
Anthony Annan 74 Ghana CA Osasuna
Apoño 74 Spain Real Zaragoza
Baena 74 Spain RCD Espanyol
De Lucas 74 Spain RC Celta de Vigo


The midfielders are responsible for finding out the lines that break the opponent’s defense. Their passing quality must be very good so they can assist the attackers.

Although Xavi is the the one who has the best passing ability in the whole FUT 13, there are many other good solutions, such as Fàbregas, Xabi Alonso and Modric.


Xavi 93 Spain FC Barcelona
Cesc Fàbregas 90 Spain FC Barcelona
Xabi Alonso 88 Spain Real Madrid

De Lucas 80 Spain RC Celta de Vigo
Trashorras 80 Spain Rayo Vallecano
Víctor Pérez 78 Spain Real Valladolid
Apoño 77 Spain Real Zaragoza
Borja Oubiña 77 Spain RC Celta de Vigo


The passing is the most important attribute in a midfielder but it’s not the only one. These players must have a good vision and, if possible, a good shooting. Xavi is the king on the first one and Kaka on the second.

A good dribbling allows you to take the team ahead, possibly creating unbalances. Also in this characteristic Xavi is well rated. Even better just Arda Turan and Ozil.


Arda Turan 89 Turkey Atlético de Madrid
Mesut Özil 88 Germany Real Madrid
Xavi 87 Spain FC Barcelona
Luka Modric 87 Croatia Real Madrid
Isco 87 Spain Málaga CF
Kaká 85 Brazil Real Madrid
Cesc Fàbregas 84 Spain FC Barcelona

Thiago 83 Spain FC Barcelona
Sergio Canales 82 Spain Valencia CF
Masoud 86 Iran CA Osasuna
Emiliano Armenteros 78 Argentina CA Osasuna
Zurutuza 77 France Real Sociedad
Franco Vázquez 76 Argentina Rayo Vallecano
Anthony Annan 75 Ghana CA Osasuna


Xavi is the best midfielder of the Liga BBVA for being the one who highlights the most on the attributes that are really important for his position. There are some cheaper options, but the choice between Fàbregas, Ozil, Xabi Alonso and others depends on your style of play.

If you often shoot outside the box, Kaka and Fabregas may be the best choices. If you like to advance with the ball on your feet, Ozil and Turan can be the right ones. No quality lacking.

Liga BBVA’s Wingers (RM, RW, RF, LM, LW e LF)


The wingers are responsible for widening the offensive moves of their team. They’re normally the most explosive players.

Some high quality wingers play in the spanish championship. Di Maria, Aléxis Sánchez and Jesús Navas on the right side, Cristiano Ronaldo and Iniesta on the left side are good examples.


Ángel Di María 86 Argentina Real Madrid
Alexis Sánchez 85 Chile FC Barcelona
Jesús Navas 85 Spain Sevilla FC
Joaquín 80 Spain Málaga CF

Pedro 84 Spain FC Barcelona
Andrés Guardado 82 Mexico Valencia CF
Reyes 81 Spain Sevilla FC
Camuñas 75 Spain RC Deportivo
Eliseu 75 Portugal Málaga CF
Gavilán 75 Spain Getafe CF


Getting away through the side line until the opponent’s goal is something commom on a winger. In order to do that with success, they need to be fast players. That’s why the speed is one of the most important attributes for the players on this position.

Four wings of Liga BBVA have a pace above 90.. Jésus Navas on the right side and Cristiano Ronaldo on the left side are the fastest. In the spanish league, only Messi is better.


Jesús Navas 92 Spain Sevilla FC

Roland Lamah 90 Belgium CA Osasuna
Juan Carlos 88 Spain Real Betis Balompié


But in order to get close from the opponent’s goal, the speed may be enough. The wingers will face the opponents and will have to use dribbling to surpass them.

Liga BBVA’s left wingers combine their speed with a great dribbling. Cristiano Ronaldo and Iniesta, two of the greatest palyers of the world, are better than the best right wingers, Aléxis Sànchez, Di Maria and Joaquín.


Alexis Sánchez 88 Chile FC Barcelona

Andrés Guardado 85 Mexico Valencia CF
Pablo Piatti 84 Argentina Valencia CF
Fabián Orellana 84 Chile Granada CF
Diego Castro 82 Spain Getafe CF


When arriving in the opponent’s box, the wingers have to decide what to do. Most times, they choose to assist the attackers. That’s why it’s important for them to be good on passing.

For the right wingers this is their weakness. Except for Di Maria, the players with the best passing are those that have a lower overall.

On the left side, Iniesta is the best choice. Still, Ronaldo and Pedro are players with a passing capacity very well developed.


Xabi Prieto 83 Spain Real Sociedad
Ángel Di María 82 Argentina Real Madrid
Pedro León 82 Spain Getafe CF
Jesús Navas 80 Spain Sevilla FC

Andrés Guardado 76 Mexico Valencia CF
Duda 82 Portugal Málaga CF
Gavilán 74 Spain Getafe CF
Adrián González 74 Spain Rayo Vallecano


Di Maria, Sánchez and Navas are the right wingers of quality. Any of them has superb pace, good dribbling and fantastic passing. But there are only three. There are actually fast wingers but they are relatively weak on dribbling and passing. The affordable prices reflect this lack of quality.

On the left side play two world football stars: Ronaldo e Iniesta. The quality of the first one is attested by the fact that he is the most expensive of all FUT 13 players. But if the Portuguese is an super complete wing, Iniesta has flaws. Although he is an outstanding player, Iniesta is not very fast and his shot is far from fantastic. In this position there are no other players in Liga BBVA which can be compared to these two..

Liga BBVA’s Attackers (CF e ST)


The attackers are the ones that play on the last third of the field alongside with the opponents’ defenders. The only requirement for them is to be able to score goals.

Lionel Messi is the best attacker in FIFA 13 Ultimate Team and probabily the best player of the world. In fact, he gives much brightness to Liga BBVA. Except for Messi, Falcão and Benzema, there are not any forward in the spanish league with the same quality that the players of other positions.

Javi Guerra 74 Spain Real Valladolid

Nélson Oliveira 74 Portugal RC Deportivo
Theofanis Gekas 74 Greece Levante UD


If attackers are supposed to score goals, then shooting is the most important attribute for them.

Falcão and Benzema are good strikers but the best one is Messi. Of the twelve attackers who best shoots in FIFA 13 Ultiamte Team, only the Argentine belongs to the Liga BBVA.

Güiza 72 Greece Levante UD


The attackers don’t use only their feet to score goals. Knowing how to head the ball can make a lot of difference. If you’re a player who often crosses the ball to the box, then this attribute is indispensable.

Aduriz and Llorente have better heading than the most wanted players, such as Messi, Benzema and Higuaín. But the player with best heading is Falcão. Vidic is the only player that can do better than the colombian in whole FUT 13.

Christian Stuani 80 Israel RCD Mallorca
Agirretxe 78 Italy RCD Espanyol


Shooting and heading are the most important attributes for an attacker. Although, according to each one’s tactic and game style, there are those who prefer attackers that take advantage on their speed to surpass the opponent’s defense.

In the Liga BBVA, Messi is the fastest attacker. José Callejón is also very fast. Falcão and Higuaín are both much more slower. Llorente, who has a great heading, is so slow that his purchase should be avoid.

Jonathan Pereira 90 Montenegro Rayo Vallecano
Iago Aspas 80 Nigeria Granada CF
Odion Ighalo 80 Spain RC Celta de Vigo
Ángel 79 Spain Málaga CF
Javi Guerra 78 Spain RCD Mallorca


For who is able to afford him, Messi is the indispensable attacker. Although he hasn’t a fantastic heading, Messi is superb on all the other attributes. For the second attacker, the choice should vary between Falcão and Benzema. If your game style privileges the pace, then the french is better. If your game style privileges the heading, then you should choose the colombian. Soldado and Negredo are the cheapest players that will be able to develop the same functions although with less quality.

Liga BBVA’s Gold Squads Suggestions for FIFA 13 Ultimate Team


As the players were already presented, it’s time for us to try putting together the best ones in the same squad. Since this task depends a lot on the tactic you use, we are going to introduce one squad suggestion for each of the most popular tactics. We’ll show one in 4-1-2-1-2 considering an unlimited budget and another in 4-4-2 considering a maximum budget of 25k coins. In the construction of these squads we chose carefully the players that better fit on the positions according to the attributes we consider more important, which we already explained in this article.


Liga BBVA’s Squad for FIFA 13 Ultimate Team with an Unlimited Budget:

  • GK: Iker Casillas
  • CB: Sergio Ramos
  • CB: Pepe
  • RB: Dani Alves
  • LB: Marcelo
  • CDM: Xabi Alonso
  • CAM: Xavi
  • RM: Di Maria
  • LM: Cristiano Ronaldo
  • ST: Lionel Messi
  • ST: Karim Benzema

No doubt this is a great squad. If there were any doubts, the fact that it is valued as around four million coins helps to ensure that.

On the goal there is the undoubtedly best goalkeeper from the world. To the bench, we recommend Diego Alves instead of Victor Valdes. Right ahead it was chosen to put two fast defenders. Sergio Ramos is the first choice and Pepe wins the place to Piqué because his pace makes up for the slight disadvantage in the defensive attributes and heading. The side defenders are players that defend well but attack even better. They’re fast and know how to cross to the box. Jordi Alba and João Pereira are the alternatives for these positions. Xabi Alonso is on of the midfielders that best defends so that his selection to the defensive middle position remains natural. The fantastic Xavi plays in front of him. He is a bit slow but he has the best vision and the best passing in the whole FUT 13, knows how to dribble and is able to find out all the spaces in order to isolate his attacking teammates. Di Maria is the chosen one to occupy the right side of the attack because of his speed, dribbling capacity, passing and crossing. Navas is a option to the place of the argentine. On the opposite side, Cristiano Ronaldo is undoubtedly because he’s the best or the second best player of the world. On the attacking front, Lionel Messi is a natural choice and to make him company there is Benzema. The french beats Falcão because, although the colombian has a perfect heading, the spanish champion is much faster. If you cross a lot to the box, Falcão should be a better option.


Liga BBVA Squad for FIFA 13 Ultimate Team with a 25k Coins Budget:

  • GK: Carlos Kameni 0.5k
  • CB: Miranda 0.5k
  • CB: Adil Rami 1.5k
  • RB: Juanfran 6k
  • LB: Filipe Luís 0.5k
  • CM: Alberto Costa 1.0k
  • CM: Arda Turan 2.0k
  • RM: Sofiane Feghouli 1.0k
  • LM: Andrés Guardado 2.0k
  • ST: Soldado 4k
  • ST: Negredo 1k

Building a 20k coins squad, in this case, doesn’t mean forming a weak squad. The important thing is to select the players with the characteristics you’re looking for.

In the Liga BBVA, only Casillas and Diego Alves have better reflexes and diving than Kameni. The Cameroonian is very cheap for his quality. Guaita is a valid alternative to goalkeeper position. For his price, Adil Rami is an authentic pearl on the defending line. He defends and heads well. His weakness is the pace. That’s why Miranda has joined to be his defending teammate. If you don’t wanna the french on your defense, try Raúl Albiol. Juanfran, the chosen to right-back, is even faster. On the opposite side, Filipe Luís is a player with good qualities except for his shooting and heading, the less important attributes on a side defender. Arda Turan and Alberto Costa have excellent dribbling and passing qualities. Isco can take this position too and if you want a midfielder more defensive, you should try Essien or Song. The wings are also very good. Feghouli and Guardado have good pace, dribbling and passing. Joaquín on the right side and Simão on the left side are our second choices. On the attacking front, both are excellent attackers. Both have good shooting and heading but Soldado is faster.

Wow greay job !!! Keep it up

Dec 16, 2012 12:01 am

Thanks. We will publish more League guides.

Dec 18, 2012 3:13 pm

A very nice analysis of the players although I have to disagree with bits of it. I play with a BBVA team, and i’m surprised you didn’t talk more about Pepe. His strength, aggression, tackling and fairly high speed make him arguably the best defender I’ve used.
Secondly, you should give Ozil more credit- in game he’s amazing.

Dec 19, 2012 12:01 pm

Hi! Good to have different opinion. But, in the Pepe case, our opinion is the same. If you pay attention to our best BBVA 11 Choice, Pepe is there. We love him. But we still think that Sergio Ramos is a bit better. Pepe is one of the best FUT 13 defenders, for sure. About Ozil, we respect your opinion. Ozil is a great player but he have a lot of competition in BBVA squad.

Dec 31, 2012 8:00 am

Good la liga squad and formation for 85K? Selling my EPL squad.

Jan 1, 2013 5:16 pm

It depends of your formation, your style of play, your budget, your preferences, etc… The best for us can be the worse for you.
You can try something like: Diego Alves, João Pereira, Pepe, Miranda, Jordi Alba, Xabi Alonso, Turan, Navas, Guardado, Soldado and Higuain

what team schould I buy for 50k

Jan 1, 2013 8:30 pm

It depends of your formation, your style of play, your budget, your preferences, etc… The best for us can be the worse for you.
You can try something like: Diego Alves, João Pereira, Adil rami, Miranda, Filipe Luis, Xabi Alonso, Turan, Navas, Guardado, Soldado and Higuain

Jan 2, 2013 4:56 pm

Hey, i was wondering if you know any websites where i can get free coins?

Also do you know any formations that are good for crossing and counter attacking. because i love crossing and counter attacking. thanks!

Jan 3, 2013 12:00 am

Free coins is like Santa. It doesn’t exist. Read more here. You can join us on facebook if you want. We make some giveaways once in a while.
The best way to chose your formation is to try them all. You shpuld also try to read our formations guide.

Jan 4, 2013 1:18 pm

Hi my squad currently is 3-4-1-2
Cassilass -gk
Piqué, Ramos, puyol -Cb
Iniesta- Lm
Xavi, Silva -Cm
Di Maria – Rm
Fabregas – Cf
Falcao, Benzema -St
Is there anyway I can improve the attack force but still keep 100 Chemistry? Or any other improvements? Possibly a hybrid? Cheers

Jan 4, 2013 5:52 pm

Hi. If you are thinking on a hybrid squad take a look to our BPL/BBVA hybrid squad on MY FUT 13.
There is a improvement that you can do in your defence: buy Pepe. He is much better than Piqué and Puyol. It is a really good advice. Believe us.
You already have a good attack. Messi is too expensive but Aguero can play as right ST. We are not sure but we think that he will keep 9 on chemistry. And your team chemistry will be 100 for sure.

Jan 5, 2013 1:14 pm

Hi. I bought Pepe and since I’ve played with him he’s been amazing. Much better than piqué cheers for the advice. Do you think the chemistry would remain at 100 if I had Rooney as a centre forward and RVP and agüero as strikers?

Jan 8, 2013 10:18 pm

I do not test your chemistry but we are almost sure that you will keep your chemistry on 100%.

Jan 7, 2013 5:29 pm

why did you go for benzema and not falco his got excellent heading you will score my goals with falco

Jan 7, 2013 8:18 pm

Both are good choices. The french is much faster and that’s why we chose him. If you cross a lot to the box, Falcão should be a better option. In our MY FUT 13 team we have Falcão, for example. It depends of your style of play. We chose Benzema for this team because most of the players preferes the pace.

Jan 8, 2013 5:41 pm

My team is 3412
Gk Valdes
Cb mascherano piqué Pepe
Lm iniesta
Cm xavi and silva
Rm Di Maria
Cf Rooney
St agüero RVP

Do you think I should save up for robben as a rm and Lahm as a cb and would that leave me with 100 chem?

Jan 8, 2013 10:47 pm

You can save for both but almost sure you will loose the 100 chemistry. Instead Lahm as a CB, why not Sergio Ramos ?

Jan 9, 2013 4:39 pm

Hi, I’m in the process of buying a BBVA team with a rough budget of 300-330k. I know the players I want pretty much but I have no idea on the formation. I’m thinking for either 4-1-2-1-2 or 3-5-2. I know with 3-5-2 I might need fast CBs but I just don’t think Ramos is worth 110k+ (plus I wouldn’t be able to afford him.

Jan 9, 2013 10:20 pm

Choosing the right formation is not a easy thing. It depends of your style of play, your preferences, etc… It’s up to you. If you don’t want Sergio Ramos you can try Pepe. He is much much cheaper and fast enough to that formation.
In our opinion, 4-1-2-1-2 is a better formation to BBVA. But it is only an opinion.

can u rate my la logs team and tell me how to improve it
Diego alves gk
pepe piqué macharino CB

Pedro LM. Jesus navas RM
kaka cam
soldano. higuaín. st
who do u suggest I buy to make it better and keep it at 100 chemistry

Jan 10, 2013 12:56 pm

It depends of your style of play, your preferences and, of course, your budget. The best for us can be the worse for you.
You already have a fantastic GK. Pepe is wonderful, one of our favourites. The others CB’s are a bit slower. Everything else seems oK.
We can suggest you Xabi Alonso and Falcão but we do not know if you have enough coins.

Matt a
Jan 10, 2013 10:55 pm

I have 52k would I have enough for one of them

Jan 10, 2013 11:32 pm

With the TOTY market crash, the prices should be lower on friday and sunday. You can try to buy one of them on that date: Falcão if you are not scoring many goals or Xabi if you your opponents are scoring many goals.

Matt a
Jan 10, 2013 11:57 pm

thanks I just bought xabi for 10k how much should I pay for falco

Something like 28k.

Jan 17, 2013 5:49 am

Loved your analysis. It was very thorough. My squad is a 433 liga BBVA. Im not sure who to put in RW. Di Maria or Jesus Navas? My striker is falcao, and left wing David Villa. Thanks.

Jan 17, 2013 9:10 am

Di Maria is better player but if pace is really important to you Navas is your player. We play with both. Di Maria in some matches and Navas in others. And we have Falcao too.

Jan 19, 2013 1:46 pm

hello my team is in 433
st falcao
lw di maria rw is simao if
lcm is modric cm is xabia alonso rcm is fabregas
lb is marcelo cbs are pepe and pique rb is joao pereira
gk is valdes

please some tips and maybe another formation

Jan 19, 2013 10:50 pm

BBVA is probably the best league to buid our squad. It is cheaper than BPL but has lots of players with quality.
You have one of best defences you can have. Of course, if you were rich you could buy Casillas and Dani Alves, for example, but it’s true that they are too expensive for the small improvement they give to your team. If you have coins enough, you can try to buy Sergio Ramos in order to get the perfect defence.
The other sector are OK too. You have a nice team.

Jan 19, 2013 5:24 pm

hi can u rate my team
d alves
And pls tell me your suggestion

Jan 19, 2013 11:24 pm

To be honest, we don’t like your CB’s. They are OK if you defend most of the match but if you want to attack, you will need fast CB’s. Pepe can be a good option. We know that his rating is only 85 but he plays much better than Puyol and Mascherano. In our opinion, of course.
You have a good midfield, with pace RM/LM. If you collect some more coins you can try to find a better partner to Higuain.
In general you have a good team but which can be improved.

Jan 20, 2013 2:10 am

so can u suggest any gud parter for higuain whos umder 40000 even i think that soldado is slow and thanks for suggestion

Jan 20, 2013 2:57 pm

You can give a try with Falcão. If heading is important, he is the best one.
Benzema is a bit more expensive but is also a good choice.

Jan 20, 2013 4:56 pm

so how much should falcao cost me and btw why modric gets tired so fast coz when i play with him with full energy his energy becomes around 40 in 2 or 3 mattch

Jan 20, 2013 11:27 pm

Falcao will cost you something between 35k and 40k.
The Modric issue is more complex. There are players that get tired faster. Modric isn’t one of that players since he has 83 of stamina. They can get tired faster if they suffer many faults. Maybe it happened. Maybe not.
The normal is a player decrease from 100 to 90 in 3 matches.

Jan 21, 2013 4:21 pm

i think u r a fut administator i completed my manager quest and i am supposed to geta gold pack i didnt get it that was 2 months before i didnt know what to do when i came here to find my solution i thought ill ask u about this can u help me in any way

Jan 21, 2013 11:25 pm

It should be EA to help you. Try to contact them. Find here how to do it.

Jan 23, 2013 9:49 pm

Can you rate my team

Dani alves, Sergio Ramos, pepe, jordi alba
Alonso, iniesta, xavi, di Maria
Falcao, benzema 4 1 2 1 2

Jan 23, 2013 10:22 pm

Superb :)
Liga BBVA have good players and is cheaper than BPL.
You have the best GK and CB’s that you can have in FUT 13 (maybe only Thiago Silva can be better). Dani Alves and Jordi Alba are very fast RB/LB’s. Alonso is perfect to CDM. The midfielders are great. And you have the best striker of BBVA (except Messi). You have 7 players that were elected to TOTY.
Better only if you buy Messi and Ronaldo.
But attention: sometimes the players with higher rating are not the best to us. If you don’t like Di Maria, try Navas. He is faster.

Jan 24, 2013 10:55 pm

I have a question about the priority of getting players. I have a 4-1-2-1-2 squad that goes
Benzema. Falcao
Iniesta. Di Maria
Xabi Alonso
Marcelo – Pepe – Sergio Ramos – Pereira

I am thinking my next move should be for either xavi (CAM) or Dani Alves (RB) . I have about 50k right now, so would it be best to get 20k more coins and grab xavi, or keep saving and get alves? Or is there someone else I’m completely missing?

Jan 24, 2013 11:06 pm

We love your team. You have the best GK’s and a really good defence. Midfield are amazing and ST’s are some of the betters.
You are not missing anything else.

Jan 26, 2013 4:20 am

r there any cheap if players from any league that play gud

Jan 26, 2013 11:55 pm

IF players are always very expensive. Tey are not good value for money. We only recommend them if you are very rich, want to improve your team and there is no any regular player for that position that you like it.

Jan 27, 2013 4:14 pm

is there any player i can replace him with this squad 4-2-2-2 alves mascherano puyol coentrao periera alonso fabregas ozil modric falcao and higuain and wh is betta d alves or valdes

Jan 28, 2013 10:09 am

Hi. For us, Valdes isn’t better than Alves and he is more expensive.
You have a nice team but we think that Mascherano and Puyol shouldn’t play together. They are too slow. There are one BBVA CB that is much better than both: Pepe. You should try him. It’s cheap, we love him and connects very well with João Pereira. And a new Alves card is coming…

Jan 27, 2013 10:33 pm

Hi my current team is 4-4-2 I have

Victor Valdes,
Mascherano, Puyol, Pique, Pepe
David Villa, Cesc Fabregas, Xabi Alonso, Ozil
Fernando Torres, Benzema

How can I improve my top squad score? 185
and how would you rate my team?

Jan 28, 2013 12:00 pm

We think that Top Squad Score doesn’t matter for anything. But if you improve your chemistry it will raise.
We don’t understand one thing in your team: why you don’t use LB/RB’s ? In a 4-4-2 it’s important to have fast RB/LB’s and you don’t have. It damage your chemistry too. BBPL have great players for these positions: João Pereira, Dani Alves, Marcelo, Jordi Alba, etc…
The same happens on your midfield. You use CM/CAM’s to RM/LM postions and it isn’t good. On the right side, for example, you have Sanchez, Navas and Di Maria. You should do something about it immediately.

Jan 28, 2013 4:43 pm

if i replace lahm for periera will my chenistry go down and when will alves catd come

Jan 28, 2013 8:10 pm

We don’t recommend to do that. In a 4-2-2-2 Lahm don’t connect with anyone of same league or same nationality. It means that his individual chemistry will be not higher than 6. It affects a lot the way he will play. João Pereira with 9 is much better than Lahm with 6.
Alves will be released very soon. This week for sure. You can view the full updated list here.

Jan 30, 2013 4:56 am

I need some fast defenders bc I like to attack alot and sometimes my CB’s come up Also and get burned on the way back. What should I do???

Jan 30, 2013 12:56 pm

Assuming that you have a BBVA based squad, you should try Pepe and Sergio Ramos. The first one is fast enough and a very good defender. The second is a bit expensive.

Jan 30, 2013 10:47 pm

106k in the bank, have no team right now. What players would you suggest? I like fast. very fast.

Jan 31, 2013 4:25 pm

Diego Alves, João Pereira, Pepe, Miranda, Fábio Coentrão, Navas, Modric, Song, Andrés Guardado, Falcão and Higuain.

Jan 31, 2013 6:06 pm

Hi first off, great articles
was wondering what you would do in my situation – I have approx 550k coins to create my bbva squad here is what I have come up with so far


pereia – pepe – ramos – marcelo
Pedro IF – iniesta
benze – falcao

However this puts the price of the squad approx 150k over my limit for the squad the easy solution would be to just replace ramos with someone else, but I just think the combination of ramos + pepe is sooo strong
Do you have any ideas how I could reduce the price of my squad or do you have any ideas about the squad in general?

regards nicklas

Jan 31, 2013 9:52 pm

Hi. Thank you so much!
We love BBVA because it is cheaper than BPL but have better players.
If you asked us to build the best BBVA team, except Ronaldo and Messi, we would build this one. It’s perfect for your formation and almost perfect for your budget. :)
We agree with you: the combination of Pepe + Ramos is sooo strong. They are the CB’s of our team. But if you don’t have enough money…
Our suggestion: Sell Pedro SIF (IF 2) and buy Navas. You save almost 70k with this. Sell Xavi and buy Fábregas or Ozil. You save another 70k with this. We know that it isn’t the same thing, specially with Xavi, but you can go saving more coins and buy Xavi and Pedro later.

Feb 1, 2013 12:54 am

Thanks for the response ill give it a go! Looking forward to new articles!

Feb 1, 2013 3:11 am

ohh one more thing, if you are doing an iteration of the league overviews, you should really consider having a look into work rates. From my own and my friends experience a player with beneficial work rates for his position often feels alot better than his stats might imply
again cheers for the league reviews, I use these as my bible 😀

Feb 1, 2013 10:49 pm

You are absolutely right. We will analyse the Work rates with more careful in next guides. Our experience is the same of yours.
Thanks again.

Feb 1, 2013 10:39 pm


Feb 1, 2013 1:57 am

Hi. I have 60k in the bank. (I know that is not alot) but I was wondering in a 3-4-3 what players I could put together. Thanks!

Feb 1, 2013 10:47 pm

Something wrong here.
Two days ago you had 106k and we suggest you a team. Now you are asking a new suggestion to 60k ?
Diego Alves, João Pereira, Pepe, Miranda, Fábio Coentrão, Navas, Modric, Song, Andrés Guardado, Soldado and Higuain.

Feb 1, 2013 4:38 am

Hi, great article, I ‘ve learning so much of FUT because of this, I have a problem, everytime that i want to play online or play against a friend squad or online or playing the TOTW, my ps3 freezes and what seems weird for me is that it only happens in FUT because I can normally play Online in other game modes without having a problem, so it would be awesome if you could help me with that, this is my team that I could manage to make by only playing offline and buying packs with fifa points.


Feb 1, 2013 10:58 pm

From Peru ? Wooooo! :) So far!
We can’t help you about the PS3 freezes that you have. You should contact EA to help you: https://help.ea.com/en/article/welcome-to-the-new-and-improved-ea-help-center
We know that some players have solved their freezes problems cleaning the PS3 cache but it didn’t work with all of them. You can try it.

About your team, it seems that you like fast players. We suggest João Pereira to RB. He is cheap and much better (and faster!) than Juanfran.
You will need more coins to improve your team. You already have a good team for your budget.

Feb 3, 2013 9:43 pm

hi can you please tell me the subs for the 25k liga bbva team

Feb 4, 2013 12:46 am

RM Jorge Enrique CM Rafinha, Arouca LM Emerson
CF Rafael Sóbis

Feb 6, 2013 12:49 am

If you want to know wxactly how much worth your team, try to consult a FUT database.

Feb 6, 2013 12:59 am

Im trying to find a formation and players that fit to me.
I like speed, through passes, shooting from far away, only 3 defenders and I don’t care if hybrid or players from the same team, leage or nationality

Feb 6, 2013 1:23 am

It should be easier if you show us your ideas. Give us a scratch of your team.

Feb 6, 2013 1:25 am

I have no team

Feb 6, 2013 11:19 am

We mean a scratch of what you are thinking for your team.

Feb 6, 2013 5:18 pm

Here is my 41212 squad:
Dani alves, Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Jordi alba (IF)
di Maria, Pedro (IF)
Messi, Benzema

I cant afford Ronaldo. Pedro works for me sometimes, but other times I feel as though he is non-existant in my team probably due to his work rates. Any other suggestions? I also use Eliseu from time to time mainly due to his speed and decent defensive stats.

Also with Eliseu he has a decent shot on him, I have pulled of some insane shots, I also really like his strength, he tends to push a lot of defenders off of him, that is my other complaint about Pedro, he is fairly weak

Not sure if this is worth it, but I could sell my IF Pedro, and IF Alba, pick up regular Alba and then just use Eliseu and then trade in my 94 Messi for 95 Messi?

Feb 6, 2013 7:19 pm

Congratulations. You have a wonderful team.
A player with best rating does not have to be the best. It seems to be the case. If you feel that Eliseu is better player for your team than Pedro, then do not hesitate. Sell IF Pedro and buy Eliseu.
The main question is: what you will do with that money? We do not agree to upgrade Messi. It is too expensive. You have other better things to do with these coins (saving for Ronaldo when his price drop, for example).

Feb 6, 2013 7:18 pm

This is what im thinking of
CBAlbiol CB Díaz CB Varane
LM Guardado CM Costa CM Banega RM Joaquín
LW Tello ST Soldado LW Susaeta
Aprox. how much will it cost and what improvements should I do

Feb 8, 2013 12:30 am

Sorry for the delay. We didn’t see your comment.
It is a nice time for a low budget. To know how much it will cost you check a FUT database like http://ultimatedb.nl/

Feb 7, 2013 7:06 pm

Carlos Vela is Mexican, not Spanish. Check the table with fastest strikers.

Feb 7, 2013 10:03 pm

Thank you so much!
It’s absolutely true. We already updated his nationality.
It’s good to have users like you that alert us for this kind of things. Sorry about it.

Feb 7, 2013 7:23 pm

hi do you think i should get turan as a CAM insted of a CM as he is much cheaper as a CAM

Feb 7, 2013 10:05 pm

If in your formation you need a CM, then you should try to buy Turan as CM. You should try to keep his chemistry high. Otherwise, he will not play the best he knows.

Feb 8, 2013 6:03 pm

Could I put a position changer on turan from cam to cm???

Sure. If you have a CAM player, you can apply him a cam-cm card to make him a CM.

Feb 8, 2013 2:24 am

If I have a 50k budget would this be good if you can tell me any improvements plz do
GK Diego Alves
CB Amorembieta CB Díaz CB Rami
CM Costa CM Essien
RM Feghouli LM Guardado
RW Joaquín IF LW Tello
ST Higuaín
I didn’t know who to put on RM and RW

Feb 8, 2013 11:57 am

Hi. 50k is a very good budget for some improvements.
Pepe, Pepe, Pepe. Buy Pepe. Really. He can be a very expensive player for your team but the 15k that he costs are very well spent. Miranda is a very cheap player and, in our opinion, is better than Diaz and Amorembieta, specially in teams with 3 defenders.
If you like pacey players, Navas is the man that you are looking for to RM/RW position. He costs 7k, which means that you will keep with something like 28k.
You can also try Fábregas, Xabi and David Villa.

What is navas position

Feb 8, 2013 8:08 pm

Navas is a RM but you can find him as RW or RF too.

Feb 8, 2013 8:46 pm

Ok thanks and wat should i do about RW

Feb 8, 2013 9:33 pm

We suggest Sánchez.

Feb 10, 2013 11:04 pm

Budget 30k any imptovements PLAYER PRICE (K) GK 82 Alves or lopez 3.0 CB 81 Amorembieta 1.0 CB 86 Mascherano 4.5 CB 84 Rami 2.0 CM 85 Busquets 4.5 CM 83 Song 3.0 RM 85 Navas 4.0 LM 82 Guardado 1.5 RW 85 Sanchez 2.0 LW 85 Villa 4.5 ST 85 Higuain 2.5 Total: 33.0 or GK 82 Alvez 2.0 LB 81 Coentrao 2.0 CB 85 Pepe 7.0 RB 80 Pereira 1.0 CDM 85 Busquets 1.5 LM 84 Pedro 4.5 RM 85 Navas 3.0 CAM 84 Kaka 2.0 ST 84 Soldado 1.5 ST 85 Higuain 2.5 Total: 27.0

Feb 10, 2013 11:17 pm

We don’t recommend the defence of your second team. They are all great players but you will loose a lot on individual chemistry putting a RB and a LB on CB position.
And there are other strange things: for example, why Navas has different prices for the same position?
We think that the first team is better but you should try replace Amorembieta by Pepe. We know that it is higher than your budget but 5k coins isn’t so difficult to get. And the GK is Alves.

Feb 11, 2013 12:05 am

Thanks, in betwen pepe and pereira goes rami 2.0k so the final price is 29.0 and i cant aford pepe on the first team

Feb 11, 2013 12:41 am

You will love him!

Feb 11, 2013 2:36 am

whos betta modric or ,ata for ma team

Xabi alonso
Modric or mata

Feb 11, 2013 10:05 am

It isn’t a easy choice. If money is a problem for you, you should choose Modric. He is much cheaper and play so well as Mata. The spanish is a bit faster and have better shooting. Modric defends better, has better passing, a better weak foot and a better attacking work rate.
You should see what is more important to you.

Feb 12, 2013 9:38 pm

Someone said earlier about choosing ozil over xavi. Is xavi really worth the loss in pace? I dont feel confident playing with Xabi and Xavi because of their pace.

Currently, my squad looks like the one you posted without Ronaldo or Messi or Ramos(Miranda is my cheap alternative at the moment).

Feb 12, 2013 11:29 pm

Great squad you have!
We understand your concerns. Pace is so important on FUT 13! But we still think that Xavi is the best player for that position. In our opinion, pace isn’t the most important thing in a CAM. But, if your play style is different from our, you can prefer a faster player.
Miranda is a cheap alternative but if you save some more coins (a lot!) you will see that Sergio Ramos is a wonderful team mate to Pepe.

Mar 18, 2013 8:29 am

Correct you are about Ramos and I never doubted that. My Ramos and Pepe are a force to be reckoned with. Although I have a tip for everybody making a La Liga team from someone that plays soooo many games with just this team. I thank FifaUteam for giving me an idea on how to start my team but there was a couple changes I did that I think some of you will find more favorable than what FifaUteam has posted.
First, most of you including myself cant afford the great Messi and Ronaldo. So in LM I use Simao/Iniesta and for a striking partner to Benzema I use Falcao and Obafemi Martins.
Marcelo helped me score some great goals but I decided to sell him and get Second In Form Monreal. The reason was because I was left with only one defender with high defending work rates(PEPE). That proved difficult to deal with even with the help of pacey defenders like Alves/Pereira and Ramos.
Earlier I said that Ozil was probably better than Xavi because of pace but Xavi is a player that i can say was gold well spent. I ended up selling ozil and getting Modric to be the sub for Xavi. Modric( Better long passing than ozil, better short passing than ozil, cheaper and has a 4 star weak foot) is just a beast.
One more thing fellow community… IF Gary Medel is the best CDM for La Liga. For a CDM, I care more about how he can support my defense instead of my attacking players. Why Medel? He has 98 aggression, 89 Interceptions, 90 Reactions and a killer 93 standing tackle. You cant argue with those stats. At least I cant.
Thank you FifaUteam and I hope that this helps fellow readers.
P.S Next player I’m going after is IF Pepe. I cant wait to try…

Mar 18, 2013 10:30 am

Thank you very much for your feedback. It will help the community for sure.
Just some notes: on our guide we didn’t include IF and UP players. For Simao place you also have Eliseu UP. He plays very well. And yes, Pepe IF is very good. We love him.

Feb 13, 2013 8:43 pm

Hey , can u rate my team and can suggest few improvements .
Gk – diego alves

lb – Alba
cdm – Xabi
LM Villa
Rm – maria , navas
CAm – Fabre , modric ( will ozile be better ? )
St – higuain , falcao
Pls suggestas and rate

Feb 13, 2013 8:53 pm

You have a nice BBVA team.
For us, João Pereira is better than Juanfran.
Miranda can be the good fast and cheap CB that you are looking for.
Ozil seems better but Modric defends much better (medium defensive WR). It’s up to you do decide what is more important to your team.
If you save more coins, you can try Benzema.

Feb 14, 2013 3:46 am

Thanks for the quick reply . Generally in Cam fabregas plays for my team , and as you know modric gets tired very early , so he is just as a backup . Cam in my team genarally plays a role of the 3rd striker . Will ozil overpower fabregas in performance ?

Feb 14, 2013 4:20 am

I have only Diego Alves as a Gk , pls suggest me a backup Gk .

Feb 14, 2013 5:14 pm

If you want someone extremely cheap you can try Carlos Kameni.

Feb 14, 2013 5:13 pm

Maybe. You should try Ozil.

Feb 15, 2013 5:02 am

Thanks bro for your suggestion . I bought ozil last day , he is better as a striker then fabregas .
My next target is Benzema . In the mean time , about a gk , i can afford Valdez he comes around 15k having diego alves in the first squad , will valdez be worthwhile ?

Feb 15, 2013 11:54 pm

Yes, he will. We suggest you a cheap GK but if you have enough coins go ahead with Valdez.
Nice to see that you enjoyed Ozil.

Feb 14, 2013 6:39 pm

Hi, I’m in the process of buying a BBVA team with a rough budget of 80k – 100k, I’m thinking of playing a 4-3-3 formation, could you recommend a starting 11 for this price range and formation please thank you

Feb 15, 2013 11:49 pm

Diego Alves, João Pereira, Pepe, Miranda, Fábio Coentrão, Navas, Modric, Ozil, Andrés Guardado, Soldado and Higuain 4-4-2

Feb 16, 2013 5:57 pm

Thanks that is brilliant but I notice you advised 4-4-2 and I really wanted a squad recommendation for 4-3-3, is there any chance you could advise on 4-3-3 squad please if not thank you very much for the 4-4-2 squad

Feb 16, 2013 8:17 pm

Sorry. We forgot that you said that you want a 4-3-3 team.
We suggestion for that budget is: Diego Alves, João Pereira, Pepe, Miranda, Fábio Coentrão, Modric, Xabi Alonso, Ozil, Sánchez, David Villa and Higuain
