Introduction to the FUT 14 Liga BBVA Guide

 

Building a team is the biggest challenge in FIFA 14 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 14. 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 leagues are the Brazilians and 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 14 Ultimate Team based on players from the Liga BBVA. 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 14 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 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 14 Ultimate Team Liga BBVA teams are suggested, the prices considered are the ones of the date of the guide’s publication: December 2013. It’s natural that the prices have suffered some oscillations throughout the season, so they should only be considered as guiding prices.

     
     

     
     
     

    Liga BBVA

     

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

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

    Started in 1928, La Liga has only been conquered by nine clubs. The dominant clubs are Real Madrid and Barcelona, with a total of 33 and 23 titles. Atlético de Madrid (9), Atlético de Bilbao (8), Valência (6) and Real Sociedade (2) were the other teams that won more than once, while Desportivo da Corunha, Real Bétis and Sevilha only won the title once.

    As to last season, the Liga BBVA lost some good players such as Llorente (Juventus), Demichelis (Manchester City), Thiago Alcantara (Bayern FC), Toulalan (Monaco), Javier Saviola (Olympiakos), Roque Santa Cruz, Essien, Kaká, Ricardo Carvalho (Monaco), Callejón (Napoli), Albiol (Napoli), Higuain (Napoli), Álvaro Negredo (Manchester City), Jesus Navas (Manchester City), Tino Costa (Spartak Moscovo), Gago (Boca Juniors) e Soldado (Tottenham). But, the biggest out transfers were the move of Ozil from Real Madrid to the Gunners by 50 million Euros and the move of Falcao from Atlético Madrid to Monaco by 60 million Euros.

    These transfers didn’t necessarily make the Liga BBVA weaker. The Spanish teams spent 355 million Euros on strong reinforcements: Guilavogui (Atlético de Madrid), Bojan (Barcelona), Carvajal (Real Madrid), Kevin Gameiro (Sevilha) e Pabón (Valência). But the biggest signings of the season happened in Madrid and Barcelona. Gareth Bale and Neymar have joined to La Liga by 157 million Euros, almost half of the all money spent by the all Liga BBVA clubs this season.

    The choices are a lot for which our guide will certainly be useful as to building a team with players from this league. But, since it’s the league with better players, their prices are high. Only the Barclays PL players are more expensive than these ones. To the players with a limited budget, there are other better options.

     
     

     
     
     
     
     

    FUT 14 Liga BBVA 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.

    Despite his downgrade, Iker Casillas is still the more popular goalkeeper from Liga BBVA. Only Thibaut Courtois, Valdés and Diego López have a rating that can be compared. For having the best rating they are also the most searched by this league’s teams so they’re more expensive.

     


    MOST HIGH-RATED GOALKEEPERS
    Casillas 86 Spain Real Madrid
    Thibaut Courtois 84 Belgium Atlético de Madrid
    Victor Valdés 83 Spain FC Barcelona
    Diego López 83 Spain Real Madrid
    Diego Alves 81 Brazil Valencia CF
    Claudio Bravo 81 Chile Real Sociedad
    Andrés Fernández 80 Spain CA Osasuna
    Guaita 80 Spain Valencia CF
    Wilfredo Caballero 79 Argentina Málaga CF
    Beto 78 Portugal Sevilla FC


     

    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 Iker Casillas and Diego Alves. No one on whole FIFA 14 has better reflexes than they have.

     


    GOALKEEPERS WITH BEST REFLEXES
    Casillas 90 Spain Real Madrid
    Diego Alves 90 Brazil Valencia CF
    Thibaut Courtois 86 Belgium Atlético de Madrid
    Andrés Fernández 86 Spain CA Osasuna
    Wilfredo Caballero 86 Argentina Málaga CF
    Claudio Bravo 85 Chile Real Sociedad
    Guaita 85 Spain Valencia CF
    Victor Valdés 83 Spain FC Barcelona
    Javi Varas 83 Spain Sevilla FC
    Carlos Idriss Kameni 83 Cameroon Málaga CF


     

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

    Also in this aspect, Casillas and Diego Alves are the best on Liga BBVA. The Brazilian and Buffon are the goalkeepers with best diving in the world.

     


    GOALKEEPER WITH BEST DIVING
    Diego Alves 90 Brazil Valencia CF
    Casillas 89 Spain Real Madrid
    Andrés Fernández 86 Spain CA Osasuna
    Claudio Bravo 84 Chile Real Sociedad
    Oscar Ustari 83 Argentina UD Almería
    Thibaut Courtois 82 Belgium Atlético de Madrid
    Victor Valdés 82 Spain FC Barcelona
    Javi Varas 82 Spain Sevilla FC
    Carlos Idriss Kameni 82 Cameroon Málaga CF
    Diego López 81 Spain Real Madrid


     

    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 Casillas’ weak point. Even though he can’t be considered a short goalkeeper, the truth is he’s 14 cm short of the mighty Thibaut Courtois, this gold goalkeeper holds the title of tallest Liga BBVA Goalkeeper. Diego López from Real Madrid and Casilla RCD Espanyol are both above 1,90 m.

     


    TALLEST GOALKEEPERS
    Thibaut Courtois 199 Belgium Atlético de Madrid
    Diego López 196 Spain Real Madrid
    Casilla 191 Spain RCD Espanyol
    Guaita 190 Spain Valencia CF
    Diego Alves 188 Brazil Valencia CF
    Wilfredo Caballero 186 Argentina Málaga CF
    Carlos Idriss Kameni 186 Cameroon Málaga CF
    Casillas 185 Spain Real Madrid
    Claudio Bravo 185 Chile Real Sociedad
    Moyá 185 Spain Getafe CF


     

    The choice for the best Liga BBVA goalkeeper on FIFA 14 Ultimate team, is easy.

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

    For those who frequently pass the ball to the goalkeeper, Claudio Bravo is a choice to be considered. Besides Casillas and Diego Alves, our suggestions are Courtois and then Valdés. The Belgian is the goalkeeper from La Liga with best handling and the Spanish is the one with best positioning.

    Best FUT 14 Liga BBVA Goalkeeper


     
     

     
     
     
     
     

    FUT 14 Liga BBVA 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.

    Sergio Ramos and Piqué are the central backs with the best reputation in the Liga BBVA. The remaining good players to consider because of experience are Puyol, Pepe and Mascherano, and by irreverence, Raphael Varane is the main one.

     


    HIGHEST RATED CENTRAL BACKS
    Piqué 86 Spain FC Barcelona
    Sergio Ramos 86 Spain Real Madrid
    Javier Mascherano 84 Argentina FC Barcelona
    Puyol 83 Spain FC Barcelona
    Diego Godín 83 Uruguay Atlético de Madrid
    Pepe 83 Portugal Real Madrid
    Adil Rami 82 France Valencia CF
    Raphaël Varane 81 France Real Madrid
    Miranda 81 Brazil Atlético de Madrid


     

    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.

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

     


    CENTRAL BACKS WITH BETTER DEFENDING
    Piqué 86 Spain FC Barcelona
    Javier Mascherano 85 Argentina FC Barcelona
    Puyol 85 Spain FC Barcelona
    Sergio Ramos 84 Spain Real Madrid
    Diego Godín 83 Uruguay Atlético de Madrid
    Jérémy Mathieu 83 France Valencia CF
    Pepe 82 Portugal Real Madrid
    Adil Rami 81 France Valencia CF
    Raphaël Varane 81 France Real Madrid


     

    On a game partially made difficult on stopping an opponent’s header in our box, possessing good heading is even more important on a central back than it was before. Allow him to be superior in your box when defending air balls but it’s also worth it on set pieces, like corners where a central backs jump may just be worth some goals.

    In this chapter Ricardo Costa and Sergio Ramos are the strongest ones. They are not very tall but they have the best heading and the best jumping. If you choose to not buy one of them, Diego Godín, Varane and Miranda handle it pretty well.

    Though Jérémy Mathieu is one of the tallest central backs he’s far behind on the Liga BBVA list of players with good heading. He isn’t an isolated case: the tallest central back in the league, Federico Fazio has dreadful heading and a terrible jumping. A player to avoid at all cost, even for his low speed.

     


    CENTRAL BACKS WITH BETTER HEADING
    Ricardo Costa 87 Portugal Valencia CF
    Sergio Ramos 86 Spain Real Madrid
    Adil Rami 84 France Valencia CF
    Diego Godín 83 Uruguay Atlético de Madrid
    Miranda 83 Brazil Atlético de Madrid
    Raphaël Varane 82 France Real Madrid
    Mikel San José 82 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao
    Lopo 82 Spain Getafe CF
    Piqué 81 Spain FC Barcelona


     

    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.

    The major difference between Piqué and Sergio Ramos is their pace. The Madrid’s player is the fastest of Liga BBVA and one of the fastest in the world. But there are other fast players in La Liga. The second on the list is Iñigo Martínez, a cheap option. Pepe and Miranda are also fast players and possess better attributes, in a way that either one of these two present themselves as a viable for a defence based on the Liga BBVA.

     


    CENTRAL BACKS WITH BETTER PACE
    Sergio Ramos 80 Spain Real Madrid
    Iñigo Martínez 77 Spain Real Sociedad
    Miranda 76 Brazil Atlético de Madrid
    Jérémy Mathieu 76 France Valencia CF
    Pepe 74 Portugal Real Madrid
    Loukas Vyntra 74 Greece Levante UD
    Raphaël Varane 70 France Real Madrid
    Héctor Moreno 70 Mexico RCD Espanyol
    Mikel Gonzalez 69 Spain Real Sociedad
    Javier Mascherano 68 Argentina FC Barcelona


     

    Piqué intercepts everything that is at his reach. But, if the style of play of the team is to concede extremely fast counter-attacks we don’t advise him. He’s an extremely slow defender that compromises the team in fast attacks. For that 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.

    Benefiting from their popularity and their characteristic for a good chemistry, Puyol, Pepe and Mascherano come up as being one of the first choices for teams based on the main Spanish League. They are without a doubt good players for this position but there are other cheaper solutions. Like, Miranda and Varane. The Brazilian has the second best average between the three most important attributes we considered.

    If you are searching for someone really cheap, choose Iñigo Martínez. He is the number three of that list.

    Best FUT 14 Liga BBVA Central Backs


     
     

     
     
     
     
     

    FUT 14 Liga BBVA 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.

    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.

     


    HIGHEST RATED RIGHT BACKS
    Dani Alves 84 Brazil FC Barcelona
    Juanfran 79 Spain Atlético de Madrid
    Jesús Gámez 79 Spain Málaga CF
    João Pereira 79 Portugal Valencia CF
    Iraola 78 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao
    Carlos Martinez 78 Spain Real Sociedad
    Arbeloa 77 Spain Real Madrid
    Carvajal 77 Spain Real Madrid
    Montoya 77 Spain FC Barcelona
    Cristian Sapunaru 76 Romania Elche CF


     

    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.

    Juanfran is the players that best fits this aspect. The only other players that offer any type of competition are Jesús Gámez and Dani Alves.

     


    RIGHT BACKS WITH BETTER DEFENDING
    Juanfran 81 Spain Atlético de Madrid
    Jesús Gámez 80 Spain Málaga CF
    Dani Alves 79 Brazil FC Barcelona
    Iraola 78 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao
    Arbeloa 78 Spain Real Madrid
    Cristian Sapunaru 78 Romania Elche CF
    Sergio Sánchez 78 Spain Málaga CF
    Carlos Martinez 77 Spain Real Sociedad
    João Pereira 76 Portugal Valencia CF
    Antonio Rukavina 76 Serbia Real Valladolid


     

    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.

    Between all of the right backs of Liga BBVA, Dani Alves is the fastest one. His team mate Montoya and the Portuguese João Pereira are the only ones that may be considered fast players.

     


    RIGHT BACKS WITH BETTER PACE
    Dani Alves 90 Brazil FC Barcelona
    Montoya 88 Spain FC Barcelona
    João Pereira 86 Portugal Valencia CF
    Juanfran 83 Spain Atlético de Madrid
    Carvajal 83 Spain Real Madrid
    Hugo Mallo 81 Spain RC Celta de Vigo
    Iraola 79 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao
    Antonio Rukavina 78 Serbia Real Valladolid
    Valera 76 Spain Getafe CF
    Jesús Gámez 74 Spain Málaga CF


     

    Dani Alves is undoubtedly the best right back playing on Liga BBVA. He is the fastest one and has the best shooting, passing and dribbling. His weakest point is his heading but with a work rate high/low he will not be at the defence many times.

    If you don’t have enough coins to buy him, choose Juanfran or João Pereira. They are very similar, but the Spanish defends better and the Portuguese attacks better. The only good reason for a such big difference in their prices is because one is a rare card and the other not.

    Best FUT 14 Liga BBVA Right Backs


     
     

     
     
     
     
     

    Best FUT 14 Liga BBVA Left Backs (LB e LWB)

     

    Left backs have exactly the same role of their teamm ates on the other flank. In other words, they try to make a winger’s job hard and participate on 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: Marcelo, Jordi Alba and Filipe Luís.

     


    HIGHEST RATED LEFT BACKS
    Marcelo 83 Brazil Real Madrid
    Filipe Luís 82 Brazil Atlético de Madrid
    Jordi Alba 82 Spain FC Barcelona
    Fábio Coentrão 79 Portugal Real Madrid
    Emiliano Insua 77 Argentina Atlético de Madrid
    Adriano 77 Brazil FC Barcelona
    Eliseu 76 Portugal Málaga CF
    Antunes 76 Portugal Málaga CF
    Damià 75 Spain CA Osasuna
    Fernando Navarro 75 Spain Sevilla FC


     

    Marcelo and Filipe Luis’ joint experience in the Liga BBVA, contribute decisively to make these two the two best defending left backs in the league.

     


    LEFT BACKS WITH BETTER DEFENDING
    Marcelo 81 Brazil Real Madrid
    Filipe Luís 81 Brazil Atlético de Madrid
    Emiliano Insua 80 Argentina Atlético de Madrid
    Jordi Alba 79 Spain FC Barcelona
    Fábio Coentrão 76 Portugal Real Madrid
    Adriano 76 Brazil FC Barcelona
    Damià 76 Spain CA Osasuna
    Fernando Navarro 76 Spain Sevilla FC
    Eliseu 75 Portugal Málaga CF
    Antunes 74 Portugal Málaga CF


     

    Jordi Alba is the fastest left back in the world. The second one also plays in Spain: Eliseu. They make their speed their biggest threat, differing from other players from this position. All of them are a lot slower.

     


    LEFT BACKS WITH BETTER PACE
    Jordi Alba 92 Spain FC Barcelona
    Eliseu 89 Portugal Málaga CF
    Antunes 84 Portugal Málaga CF
    Filipe Luís 83 Brazil Atlético de Madrid
    Marcelo 82 Brazil Real Madrid
    Fábio Coentrão 81 Portugal Real Madrid
    Balenziaga 79 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao
    Damià 78 Spain CA Osasuna
    De la Bella 78 Spain Real Sociedad
    Emiliano Insua 76 Argentina Atlético de Madrid


     

    To choose the best Left Back from Liga BBVA is a hard task. Marcelo is slightly better than Alba in almost every stats, 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. Even so, our preference goes to Marcelo by being a more balanced player.

    Of all the remaining players, Eliseu is our cheapest choice. He doesn’t have the same efficiency as the others we referred but he’s fast enough to cause some offensive damage and possesses a good work rate to support the defence. The also Portuguese Fábio Coentrão is an interesting player too.

    Best FUT 14 La Liga Central Defensive Midfielder (CDM)

     

    Many of the FIFA 14 Ultimate Team formations require some midfielders that have a natural aptitude to defend. Central defensive midfielders distinguish themselves for being especially aimed to help the more retreated line of their teams. According to their attributes and their work rates, they can also be useful for starting attacks. They are players that occupy a very strategic position in the field.

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

     


    HIGHEST RATED CENTRAL DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDERS
    Sergio Busquets 85 Spain FC Barcelona
    Xabi Alonso 85 Spain Real Madrid
    Sami Khedira 84 Germany Real Madrid
    Alexandre Song 83 Cameroon FC Barcelona
    Mario Suárez 79 Spain Atlético de Madrid
    Bruno 79 Spain Villarreal CF
    Javi Fuego 78 Spain Valencia CF
    Camacho 78 Spain Málaga CF
    Iborra 77 Spain Sevilla FC
    Iturraspe 77 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao


     

    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.

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

     


    CENTRAL DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDERS WITH BETTER DEFENDING
    Sami Khedira 84 Germany Real Madrid
    Sergio Busquets 83 Spain FC Barcelona
    Alexandre Song 83 Cameroon FC Barcelona
    Xabi Alonso 81 Spain Real Madrid
    Mario Suárez 80 Spain Atlético de Madrid
    Bruno 79 Spain Villarreal CF
    Javi Fuego 78 Spain Valencia CF
    Papa Kouli Diop 78 Senegal Levante UD
    Camacho 77 Spain Málaga CF
    Iborra 76 Spain Sevilla FC


     

    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’s a lot of muscle between the central defensive midfielders of Liga BBVA. Once again, Khedira is the one that stands out. On the other hand there’s Iturra. The Chilean player rarely wins a physical brawl due to being the weakest central defensive midfielder from the main Spanish League.

     

    STRONGEST CENTRAL DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDERS
    Sami Khedira 89 Germany Real Madrid
    Alexandre Song 86 Cameroon FC Barcelona
    Papa Kouli Diop 86 Senegal Levante UD
    Iborra 85 Spain Sevilla FC
    Mario Suárez 84 Spain Atlético de Madrid
    Sergio Busquets 78 Spain FC Barcelona
    Xabi Alonso 77 Spain Real Madrid
    Javi Fuego 76 Spain Valencia CF
    Iturraspe 76 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao
    Mikel Rico 76 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao


     

    Out of all the choices that are necessary to make when creating a Liga BBVA team, the central defensive midfielder is probably the most difficult one. The four players with best ratings are the ones that can make this job with success. No other player can guarantee quality on the field.

    Despite having the higher rating, Busquets is the the weakest from the four players. Xabi Alonso is amazing on ball control, passing and vision but he is not good on pace, stamina and other physical attributes. As we already showed, Khedira is the best central defensive midfielder in the most important attributes. However, it is not enough to make him our first choice. Our favourite is Song, who is almost as good as the German on defending, heading and strength. He has amazing physical stats and he is much faster than most of CDMs.

    Best FUT 14 Liga BBVA 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 is many quality in the Liga BBVA midfield. Some of the world’s best footballers play there. It’s the case of the Spaniards Xavi, Iniesta and Fàbregas.

     


    HIGHEST RATED CENTRAL MIDFIELDERS
    Xavi 89 Spain FC Barcelona
    Iniesta 89 Spain FC Barcelona
    Cesc Fàbregas 86 Spain FC Barcelona
    Luka Modric 85 Croatia Real Madrid
    Isco 84 Spain Real Madrid
    Beñat 82 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao
    Xabi Prieto 81 Spain Real Sociedad
    Ivan Rakitic 81 Croatia Sevilla FC
    Koke 81 Spain Atlético de Madrid
    Verdú 80 Spain Real Betis Balompié


     

    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.

    Even though Xavi, Iniesta and Fàbregas share the top table of the players with best passing skills, the first one stands out by being who does it better in whole world. In all leagues, only Pirlo may be compared with these three players in this attribute.

     


    CENTRAL MIDFIELDERS WITH BETTER PASSING
    Xavi 92 Spain FC Barcelona
    Iniesta 91 Spain FC Barcelona
    Cesc Fàbregas 90 Spain FC Barcelona

    Trashorras 84 Spain Rayo Vallecano
    Koke 83 Spain Atlético de Madrid
    Granero 83 Spain Real Sociedad


     

    Iniesta and Xavi’s supremacy is also showed through their dribbling. Only Isco can be compared with these two players in this aspect.

     

    CENTRAL MIDFIELDERS WITH BETTER DRIBBLING

    Adrián 85 Spain Atlético de Madrid

    Ander Herrera 84 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao
    Muniaín 84 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao
    Cesc Fàbregas 82 Spain FC Barcelona


     

    Modric and Isco are cheaper players that can perform well their roles as central midfielders. The Croatian is a box to box player while the Spanish has natural attacking tendencies.

    Our cheapest choice falls to Koke. Even though he isn’t good defensively, the Spanish is fast dribble and is a good passer.

    Liga BBVA Right Wingers (RM, RW e RF)

     

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

    The right side of the midfield was in earlier seasons one of the strongest points of Liga BBVA based teams. The move of Navas to the BPL and the downgrade of Alexis Sánchez have weakened this position. The passage of Pedro from left to right side, came as a solution to this problem.

     


    HIGHEST RATED RIGHT WINGERS
    Ángel Di María 86 Argentina Real Madrid
    Pedro 85 Spain FC Barcelona
    Alexis Sánchez 82 Chile FC Barcelona

    Patrick Ebert 80 Germany Real Valladolid
    Pedro León 79 Spain Getafe CF
    Lassane Bangoura 76 Guinea Rayo Vallecano
    Augusto Matías Fernández 76 Argentina RC Celta de Vigo
    Isaac Cuenca 75 Spain FC Barcelona


     

    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.

    On the Liga BBVA, only the young player Lassane Bangoura is faster than Di Maria. They are the only players with a pace over 90.

     


    FASTEST RIGHT WINGERS
    Lassane Bangoura 91 Guinea Rayo Vallecano
    Ángel Di María 90 Argentina Real Madrid
    Alexis Sánchez 87 Chile FC Barcelona

    Sofiane Feghouli 84 Algeria Valencia CF
    Patrick Ebert 80 Germany Real Valladolid
    Isaac Cuenca 77 Spain FC Barcelona
    Pedro León 76 Spain Getafe CF
    Augusto Matías Fernández 73 Argentina RC Celta de Vigo


     

    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 player gifted in dribbling, being Di Maria, Vela and Feghouli the best. The Argentine adds to the good dribble, the best crossing of whole FUT 14.

    Patrick Ebert 80 Germany Real Valladolid
    Pedro León 79 Spain Getafe CF
    Jose Carlos 77 Spain Rayo Vallecano


     

    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 Di Maria, Pedro Léon and Patrick Ebert offer good quality passing. Lassane Bangoura for example could’ve been an option to consider filling this slot in virtue of his fantastic pace, but he’s affected negatively for missing frequently passes to his more forward team mates.

     


    RIGHT WINGERS WITH BETTER PASSING
    Pedro León 84 Spain Getafe CF
    Ángel Di María 83 Argentina Real Madrid

    Isaac Cuenca 74 Spain FC Barcelona
    Carlos Vela 73 Mexico Real Sociedad
    Augusto Matías Fernández 73 Argentina RC Celta de Vigo


     

    Di Maria and Pedro are clearly the most indicated players to occupy this position in a team without budget restraints. Our preference goes toward the Madrid’s winger that is the best on four of the six main attributes and help the defence more due to his work rates high/high.

    From the most popular there’s also Alexis Sánchez. That even though has good stats, he is not much better than Vela or Feghouli, our economic choices.

    Liga BBVA Left Wingers (LM, LW e LF)

     

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

    Cristiano Ronaldo is clearly the best player for this position. No one can be compared with him. The change of Iniesta to the central of the field, brought even more visibility to the Portuguese supremacy.

     


    HIGHEST RATED LEFT WINGERS
    Cristiano Ronaldo 92 Portugal Real Madrid

    Giovani dos Santos 79 Mexico Villarreal CF
    Ibrahim Afellay 79 Netherlands FC Barcelona
    Gonzalo Castro 79 Uruguay Real Sociedad


     

    Even though they’re fast, Cristian Tello and Andrés Guardado are far away from Ronaldo, the fastest left winger of the world.

     


    LEFT WINGERS WITH BETTER PACE
    Cristiano Ronaldo 93 Portugal Real Madrid

    Antoine Griezmann 81 France Real Sociedad
    Diego Perotti 81 Argentina Sevilla FC
    Pizzi 81 Portugal RCD Espanyol
    Diego Castro 81 Spain Getafe CF


     

    Ronaldo is clearly the most highlighted left winger in this chapter. In the world, only Ribéry is better than him. Turan and Giovanni dos Santos have good dribbling too.

    Cristian Tello 83 Spain FC Barcelona
    Ibrahim Afellay 83 Netherlands FC Barcelona
    Gonzalo Castro 83 Uruguay Real Sociedad


     

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

    Giovani dos Santos 76 Mexico Villarreal CF
    Reyes 76 Spain Sevilla FC
    David Villa 74 Spain Atlético de Madrid


     

    Ronaldo is the most expensive player of the game. His price is 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 of the world. Among all the Liga BBVA left wingers, he is the one with better dribbling, pace, heading and shooting. But there is more: he has the best shooting of the game and he is one of the few that can perform any skill.

    For those that don’t want to pay as many coins for the captain of Portuguese National Team they have David Villa, Turan and Guardado. Only Ronaldo is better than the Mexican player on the average of the the three most important attributes we considered. Turan is really great on passing and dribbling but too slow for this position. David Villa is the most expensive of these three players but not the better one. We suggest him for who is looking for a player with good shooting skills and a wonderful penalty taker. Physically he is too weak.

    Liga BBVA Forwards (CF e ST)

     

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

    Three of the eight most expensive FUT 14 players are forwards that play on Liga BBVA, which shows very well the high quality for this position. The three times Golden Boot winner Lionel Messi is the player with the higher rating in the whole game. The big signings Neymar and Gareth Bale are the other two players.

    Morata 76 Spain Real Madrid


     

    To score goals shooting is necessary. If either by foot or head, the most important attribute for a forward are: shooting, heading and pace.

    Most goals are scored with the foot so good shooting is a necessary attribute for a forward.

    Lionel Messi is the second best shooter of FIFA 14 Ultimate Team. Only Cristiano Ronaldo is superior. Besides his team mate Neymar, Bale and Benzema possess an above average shot. This means the best forwards are the ones that best shooting.

    On FUT 14, knowing how to head gained another importance. Plenty of goals are born like this.

    Unlike with shooting there’s no proportionality between players with high ratings and players with good heading. Of the four more popular only Bale and Benzema appears in the list of 10 forwards with better heading. Neymar is the second last of this list. Aduriz is the number one.

     


    FORWARDS WITH BETTER HEADING

    Rubén Castro 66 Spain Real Betis Balompié


     

    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.

    Bale and Neymar have brought more speed to the Liga BBVA forwards. Messi has now competition on this chapter. In a way, the 21 Forwards of this league are fast players, but not as fast as Bale. Among all the FUT 14 forwards, only Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is superior.

    Messi is the best Liga BBVA forward, without any discussion. However, he is extremely expensive forcing many players to choose another forward. That choice is subjective because it depends of the play style of each player. In our opinion, Garth Bale is the most balanced one. He is very fast, has good dribbling and good defensive stats. He plays better as a CAM than as a ST. He has the best average between the three most important attributes we considered. Even better than Messi.

    For those that don’t have the money to pay for him, there is a new player that came this season to spice up the Spanish League: Neymar. Even though he isn’t a cheap player, he should be one of the first choices of any player that doesn’t cross to the box all the time. Neymar is one of the few with 5 stars on skills and on weak foot.

    Far from Benzema and Diego Costa quality, Rúben Castro is our cheapest choice. The Spanish may cause a lot of damage on the opponents defence. If you only want a cheap forward with good heading, choose Aduriz.

    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 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, 4-4-2 with 100k budget and 4-3-3 with a 20k budget.

    • Summary
    • The choice for this team’s player was based on analysis made in the previous chapters.
      In goal, Casillas is still our favourite. In centre back position, Pepe wins over Piqué in the first squad because the Spanish pace and his work rates may compromises the team in fast attacks. Sergio Ramos is unquestionable and he already has a risky high/medium work rate. We suggest to use Piqué only on formations that use 5 defenders. The full backs chosen were fast enough and equally balanced. Dani Alves is the only good choice for the right side, while on the left side Marcelo should only be passed over in favour of Alba for those who want even more speed.
      The two wingers are untouchable, the same happens with Messi in the attack. Neymar is not in this team because in this formation we believe that Bale is better than him as a ST and Iniesta as a CAM. For those that don’t cross to the head or for those who wants a fastest midfield, Neymar can take the place of Bale or Iniesta. Xavi can also be placed on a high quality midfield.

      • Summary
      • The choice for this team’s players was based on analysis made in the previous chapter.
        In goal, Diego Alves is a cheaper alternative to Casillas. In the defence Piqué takes the place of Sergio Ramos. If you don’t feel safe with his pace and work rates, give a try to Miranda.
        The full backs are still very fast but much cheaper.
        On the midfield, Fàbregas is a good investment but to choose who will play with him is a bit harder. On a 442 formation it may be a good option to use someone more defensive, like Song, but if you want to try something more risky, try Modric. Pedro and Guardado are to us the best choices to the wings while on the attack we suggest the Benzema and Diego Costa.

      • Summary
      • The choice for this team’s players was based on analysis made in the previous chapter.
        In goal Diego Alves is a true penny saver. In front of him, Pepe and Miranda close the path to goal with the precious help of Song. The Barcelona’s player is a very useful element in these types of formation for giving defensive security in midfield and setting free team mates to start attacks. João Pereira and Luís Filipe are the full backs. They are both a case of good value for money. The biggest new of this team is the double Koke / Herrera that with their pace, dribbling, and above average passing give width to the attack. On the last third of the field, Vela and Guardado are great players that support the striker Ruben Castro. For who likes to cross to the box, Aduriz is a better option. This position is the one that, for who have more coins, should invest. Diego Costa, for example, would be perfect on this team.

       
       

       
       
       
       
       

      Hybrid Squads

       

      Building a hybrid team is not usually an easy task. The biggest difficulty is finding key player to join between different leagues.

      The Liga BBVA has the better average ratings. Because of that it’s more prone to allow the build-up of hybrid teams with other leagues. The team with greatest quality is the result of the combination of BBVA and BPL. David Silva, Mata, Navas, Soldado, Negredo and Torres are key players in this connection. There are also Belgium defenders like Kompany that can connect really well with Thibaut Courtois and let’s not forget that there is also the perfect connection between Aguero and Messi.

      Building a good Hybrid team based in the BPL and Bundesliga is also possible. Javi Martinez, Dante and Diego are essential in this transiction, as it may happen with Khedira and Benzema.

      On an inferior level, the BBVA still connects reasonably with other leagues, especially with the Serie A (Llorente, Joaquín, Valero, Tevez, Higuain, Milito).
