Introduction to the FUT 14 Brazilian Players 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 league is the Barclays Premier League and the most popular nationality is the Brazilian. 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 Brazilian players. 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 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 Brazilian teams are suggested, the prices considered are the ones of the date of the guide’s publication: January 2014. It’s natural that the prices have suffered some oscillations throughout the season, so they should only be considered as guiding prices.



    Brazilian Players


    The Brazilian national football team hegemony is huge. It is the only team that has participated in all World Cups, having a record high of five wins. The quality of Brazilian players is recognized throughout the world. There are players of this nationality in almost all professional leagues.

    Many of the best players in football history were born in Brazil: Pelé, Garrincha, Zico, Romário, Ronaldo, Sócrates, Falcão, Tostão and Jairzinho are some good examples. Ronaldinho and Kaká were two of the best Brazilian players in the last years. Currently, some of the biggest stars continue to be Brazilian players: Thiago Silva, David Luiz, Dani Alves, Hulk and Marcelo.

    The choices are a lot for which our guide will certainly be useful as to building a team with players from this nationality. The squads built with Brazilian players are good choices to who is looking quality players by a good price.



    FUT 14 Brazilian 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.

    The ratings of the many Brazilian goalkeepers have changed since FUT 13. Jefferson and Júlio César are the most popular but there are other good goalkeepers that should be considered.


    Jefferson 82 Campeonato Brasileiro Botafogo
    Júlio César 82 League Championship Queens Park Rangers
    Diego Alves 81 Liga BBVA Valencia CF
    Helton 81 Liga ZON SAGRES FC Porto
    Diego Cavalieri 80 Campeonato Brasileiro Fluminense
    Victor 79 Campeonato Brasileiro Atlético Mineiro
    Artur Moraes 79 Liga ZON SAGRES SL Benfica
    Fábio 78 Campeonato Brasileiro Cruzeiro
    Cássio 78 Campeonato Brasileiro Corinthians
    Gomes 77 Premier League Tottenham Hotspur


    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. Like Casillas, Diego Alves is the best of the world on this aspect.


    Diego Alves 90 Liga BBVA Valencia CF
    Jefferson 87 Campeonato Brasileiro Botafogo
    Júlio César 86 League Championship Queens Park Rangers
    Gomes 86 Premier League Tottenham Hotspur
    Helton 85 Liga ZON SAGRES FC Porto
    Victor 85 Campeonato Brasileiro Atlético Mineiro
    Fábio 83 Campeonato Brasileiro Cruzeiro
    Rafael 83 Serie A Napoli
    Muriel 83 Campeonato Brasileiro Internacional
    Vanderlei 83 Campeonato Brasileiro Coritiba


    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, Diego Alves is the best of the world. Only Buffon can be compared with him.


    Diego Alves 90 Liga BBVA Valencia CF
    Júlio César 83 League Championship Queens Park Rangers
    Helton 83 Liga ZON SAGRES FC Porto
    Victor 82 Campeonato Brasileiro Atlético Mineiro
    Gomes 82 Premier League Tottenham Hotspur
    Rafael 82 Serie A Napoli
    Jefferson 81 Campeonato Brasileiro Botafogo
    Cássio 81 Campeonato Brasileiro Corinthians
    Guilherme 81 Russia Premier League Lokomotiv Moskva
    Diego Cavalieri 80 Campeonato Brasileiro Fluminense


    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 Diego Alves’ weak point. Even though he can’t be considered a short goalkeeper, the truth is he’s 9 cm short of the mighty Guilherme, this gold goalkeeper holds the title of tallest Brazilian Goalkeeper. None of the four highest goalkeepers has more 1,90 m.


    Guilherme 197 Russia Premier League Lokomotiv Moskva
    Cássio 195 Campeonato Brasileiro Corinthians
    Vanderlei 195 Campeonato Brasileiro Coritiba
    Dida 195 Campeonato Brasileiro Grêmio
    Victor 193 Campeonato Brasileiro Atlético Mineiro
    Artur Moraes 192 Liga ZON SAGRES SL Benfica
    Diego Cavalieri 191 Campeonato Brasileiro Fluminense
    Gomes 191 Premier League Tottenham Hotspur
    Fernando Prass 191 Brazil Serie B Palmeiras
    Muriel 190 Campeonato Brasileiro Internacional


    The choice for the best Brazilian goalkeeper on FIFA 14 Ultimate team, is easy: Diego Alves. He has the best reflexes and diving of the world, and he is one of the fastest.

    For us, Helton is the best alternative to the Valencia’s goalkeeper. Jefferson is almost as good as he is but has worse kicking and is slower. Júlio César is our number four. Has good stats but he is really slow and he is the shortest one.

    For those who want a cheap goalkeeper, Gomes is a great choice. He is not as good as the four best Brazilian goalkeepers but he has a good diving, amazing reflexes and balanced stats.

    Best FUT 14 Brazilian Goalkeeper



    FUT 14 Brazilian 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.

    Thiago Silva and Dante are the Brazilian central backs with the best reputation. No other players can be compared to them.


    Thiago Silva 87 Ligue 1 Paris Saint-Germain
    Dante 84 Bundesliga Bayern München
    David Luiz 82 Premier League Chelsea
    Miranda 81 Liga BBVA Atlético de Madrid
    Alex 81 Ligue 1 Paris Saint-Germain
    Danilo 80 Serie A Udinese
    Naldo 80 Bundesliga VfL Wolfsburg
    Luisão 80 Liga ZON SAGRES SL Benfica
    Réver 80 Campeonato Brasileiro Atlético Mineiro
    Maicon 79 Liga ZON SAGRES FC Porto
    Andrè Dias 78 Serie A Lazio
    Weligton 78 Liga BBVA Málaga CF
    Paulo Vinícius 78 Liga ZON SAGRES Braga
    Juan Jesus 78 Serie A Inter
    Leandro Castán 78 Serie A Roma


    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: Thiago Silva. It’s really hard to get past him. The most experienced players are normally those who have a higher rating on this attribute. Dante, André Dias, Naldo and Weligton prove this.


    Thiago Silva 87 Ligue 1 Paris Saint-Germain
    Dante 84 Bundesliga Bayern München
    Danilo 82 Serie A Udinese
    Naldo 81 Bundesliga VfL Wolfsburg
    Andrè Dias 81 Serie A Lazio
    Weligton 81 Liga BBVA Málaga CF
    Miranda 80 Liga BBVA Atlético de Madrid
    Luisão 80 Liga ZON SAGRES SL Benfica
    Réver 80 Campeonato Brasileiro Atlético Mineiro
    Maicon 80 Liga ZON SAGRES FC Porto
    Paulo Vinícius 80 Liga ZON SAGRES Braga
    David Luiz 79 Premier League Chelsea
    Alex 79 Ligue 1 Paris Saint-Germain
    Juan Jesus 79 Serie A Inter
    Leandro Castán 79 Serie A Roma


    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 Alex is the strongest one. Thiago Silva is not as tall or have so good heading but he is the Brazilian with best jumping. If you choose to not buy one of them, Felipe Santana, Paulo Vinícius and Leonardo Silva handle it pretty well.

    In the other hand, Naldo is the tallest but has the second worse jumping.


    Alex 86 Ligue 1 Paris Saint-Germain
    Paulo Vinícius 84 Liga ZON SAGRES Braga
    Felipe Santana 84 Bundesliga FC Schalke 04
    Leonardo Silva 84 Campeonato Brasileiro Atlético Mineiro
    Thiago Silva 83 Ligue 1 Paris Saint-Germain
    Miranda 83 Liga BBVA Atlético de Madrid
    Maicon 83 Liga ZON SAGRES FC Porto
    Dedé 82 Campeonato Brasileiro Cruzeiro
    Edu Dracena 82 Campeonato Brasileiro Santos
    Dante 81 Bundesliga Bayern München

    Lúcio 81 Campeonato Brasileiro São Paulo
    David Luiz 80 Premier League Chelsea
    Luisão 80 Liga ZON SAGRES SL Benfica
    Juan Jesus 80 Serie A Inter


    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.

    In a general way, the Brazilian central backs are very fast. Felipe Santana is the third fastest CB of the world. Thiago Silva is almost as fast but with better stats.


    Felipe Santana 81 Bundesliga FC Schalke 04
    Thiago Silva 80 Ligue 1 Paris Saint-Germain
    Manoel 80 Campeonato Brasileiro Atlético Paranaense
    Juan Jesus 79 Serie A Inter
    Marquinhos 78 Ligue 1 Paris Saint-Germain
    David Luiz 77 Premier League Chelsea

    Paulo Vinícius 65 Liga ZON SAGRES Braga
    Henrique 63 Brazil Serie B Palmeiras
    Maicon 62 Liga ZON SAGRES FC Porto


    Thiago Silva is probably the best central back of the world. He is the second Brazilian central back with best pace and the one with best defending. In FUT 14 he is really cheap. A great investment.

    Benefiting from their popularity and their characteristic for a good chemistry, David Luiz come up as being one of the first choices for teams based on Brazilian players. He is without a doubt a good player for this position but there are other cheaper solutions. Like, Felipe Santana and Miranda, the central backs that, excepting Thiago Silva, have best average between the three most important attributes we considered. Dante and Alex are interesting players but a bit slow.

    Best FUT 14 Brazilian Central Backs



    FUT 14 Brazilian 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.


    Dani Alves 84 Liga BBVA FC Barcelona
    Maicon 78 Serie A Roma
    Danilo 77 Liga ZON SAGRES FC Porto
    Rafael 77 Premier League Manchester United
    Mariano 76 Ligue 1 Girondins de Bordeaux


    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.

    Dani Alves and Maicon are the players that best fits this aspect.


    Dani Alves 79 Liga BBVA FC Barcelona
    Maicon 79 Serie A Roma
    Danilo 76 Liga ZON SAGRES FC Porto
    Rafael 76 Premier League Manchester United
    Mário Fernandes 76 Russia Premier League


    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 Brazilian right backs, Dani Alves is clearly the fastest one. He is the third fastest player of the world playing in this position. This is the weakest point of Maicon, the second Right Back with best rating.


    Dani Alves 90 Liga BBVA FC Barcelona
    Mariano 88 Ligue 1 Girondins de Bordeaux
    Leandro Salino 84 Hellas liga Olympiacos CFP
    Danilo 83 Liga ZON SAGRES FC Porto
    Rafael 81 Premier League Manchester United


    Dani Alves is undoubtedly the best Brazilian right back. He is the fastest and who has the best passing, dribbling and defending, important attributes in a full back. But he is also the most expensive.

    After several downgrades, Maicon is not any more our second choice. He is a balanced player but Mariano and Danilo are now probably better choices.


    Brazilian Players Guide for FIFA 14 Ultimate Team - RB

    Best FUT 14 Brazilian Right Backs



    Best FUT 14 Brazilian Left Backs (LB e LWB)


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

    There are only two players that stands out in this position, both playing in Madrid: Marcelo and Filipe Luis.


    Marcelo 83 Liga BBVA Real Madrid
    Filipe Luís 82 Liga BBVA Atlético de Madrid
    Alex Sandro 79 Liga ZON SAGRES FC Porto
    Maxwell 77 Ligue 1 Paris Saint-Germain
    Adriano 77 Liga BBVA FC Barcelona


    Marcelo and Filipe Luís are also the players with best defending. Alex Sandro, that plays by FC Porto, is the number three of this list.


    Marcelo 81 Liga BBVA Real Madrid
    Filipe Luís 81 Liga BBVA Atlético de Madrid
    Alex Sandro 79 Liga ZON SAGRES FC Porto
    Maxwell 77 Ligue 1 Paris Saint-Germain
    Adriano 76 Liga BBVA FC Barcelona


    The three players with best defending are also the ones with better pace. The difference between Filipe Luis, Marcelo and Alex Sandro is very small.


    Filipe Luís 83 Liga BBVA Atlético de Madrid
    Marcelo 82 Liga BBVA Real Madrid
    Alex Sandro 82 Liga ZON SAGRES FC Porto
    Siqueira 81 Liga ZON SAGRES SL Benfica
    Fábio 77 Premier League Manchester


    To choose the best Brazilian Left Back is an easy task. Marcelo has the best passing, dribbling and defending stats. The choice seems to be obvious but the truth is that in FUT 14 Filipe Luis is much better than before and he is now a good player for who can not afford Marcelo. He has the same defending, better pace and higher stamina.

    Of all the remaining players, Alex Sandro is our cheapest choice. For who is looking a RB with good shooting, Adriano is a smart choice.

    Best FUT 14 Brazilian Defensive Midfielder (CDM)


    Many of the FIFA 14 Ultimate Team formations require some midfielders that have a natural aptitude to defend. 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 Luiz Gustavo, Filipe Melo and Ramires over all other Brazilian central defensive midfielders is extremely clear.


    Luiz Gustavo 81 Bundesliga VfL Wolfsburg
    Felipe Melo 80 Turkey Süper Lig Galatasaray SK
    Ramires 80 Premier League Chelsea
    Fernando 79 Liga ZON SAGRES FC Porto
    Elias 78 Campeonato Brasileiro Flamengo
    Jean 77 Campeonato Brasileiro Fluminense
    Fernando 76 Ukraine Wyscha Liga Shakhtar Donetsk
    Willians 76 Campeonato Brasileiro Internacional
    Ralf 75 Campeonato Brasileiro Corinthians
    Pierre 75 Campeonato Brasileiro Atlético Mineiro


    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 CDMs with best defending stats are Luiz Gustavo and Fernando. Filipe Melo is also a good choice since he joins good defending stats to the best heading. Any of these three players are good choices for teams that want to complicate an opponent’s game in the space between the midfield and the defence.


    Luiz Gustavo 83 Bundesliga VfL Wolfsburg
    Fernando 83 Liga ZON SAGRES FC Porto
    Ralf 81 Campeonato Brasileiro Corinthians
    Felipe Melo 80 Turkey Süper Lig Galatasaray SK
    Pierre 80 Campeonato Brasileiro Atlético Mineiro
    Elias 77 Campeonato Brasileiro Flamengo
    Fernando 77 Ukraine Wyscha Liga Shakhtar Donetsk
    Ramires 76 Premier League Chelsea
    Willians 76 Campeonato Brasileiro Internacional
    Rômulo 76 Russia Premier League Spartak Moskva


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

    There’s not a lot of muscle between the Brazilian defensive midfielders. Once again, Felipe Melo, Fernando and Luiz Gustavo are the ones that stand out. On the other hand there’s Ramires. The Chelsea’s player rarely wins a physical brawl due to being the weakest Brazilian central defensive midfielder.


    Felipe Melo 87 Turkey Süper Lig Galatasaray SK
    Fernando 80 Liga ZON SAGRES FC Porto
    Luiz Gustavo 79 Bundesliga VfL Wolfsburg
    Souza 79 Campeonato Brasileiro Gr
    Fernando 75 Ukraine Wyscha Liga Shakhtar Donetsk

    Willians 74 Campeonato Brasileiro Internacional
    Rômulo 74 Russia Premier League Spartak Moskva
    Jucilei 71 Russia Premier League Anzhi Makhachkala
    Elias 70 Campeonato Brasileiro Flamengo


    Felipe Melo is our choice to play as defensive midfielder. He is better than Luiz Gustavo. However, the Wolfsburg’ player should be used by who is looking for a more defensive player.

    Ramires is a different player. He is like a fake defensive midfielder. He works very well in a box to box system. In the whole world, no other player that plays in the same position has better pace. He is also the player with the best stamina in FUT 14. Among all the Brazilian defensive midfielder, he is who has the best dribbling and passing. However, he is too weak physically to play as defensive midfielder. We suggest to use him as CM.

    Among the cheap players, Elias is our choice. He is good attacking and defending.

    Best FUT 14 Brazilian 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 a lot of quality in the Brazilian midfield. Many of these players have a rating higher than 80. Diego is the number one.


    Diego 84 Bundesliga VfL Wolfsburg
    Hernanes 83 Serie A Lazio
    Ronaldinho 82 Campeonato Brasileiro Atlético Mineiro
    Kaká 82 Serie A Milan

    Bernard 80 Ukraine Wyscha Liga Shakhtar Donetsk
    Zé Roberto 79 Campeonato Brasileiro Grêmio
    Juninho 78 Campeonato Brasileiro Vasco da Gama


    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.

    Who knows, never forgets. It’s the case of Ronaldinho, the Brazilian player with better passing. Alex, from Coritiba, is the number two.


    Ronaldinho 86 Campeonato Brasileiro Atlético Mineiro
    Alex 84 Campeonato Brasileiro Coritiba
    Diego 83 Bundesliga VfL Wolfsburg
    Hernanes 83 Serie A Lazio

    Jadson 80 Campeonato Brasileiro São Paulo
    Renato 80 Campeonato Brasileiro Botafogo
    Kaká 79 Serie A Milan


    Among all the Brazilian players, Coutinho is who has better dribbling. However, Ronaldinho may be a better choice because he is one of the few that know how to perform all the skills.


    Coutinho 88 Premier League Liverpool
    Diego 87 Bundesliga VfL Wolfsburg
    Ronaldinho 87 Campeonato Brasileiro Atlético Mineiro

    Alex 82 Campeonato Brasileiro Coritiba
    Renato Augusto 82 Campeonato Brasileiro Corinthians
    Zé Roberto 82 Campeonato Brasileiro Grêmio


    It is not easy to choose the best Brazilian midfield in FUT 14. To us, Hernanes is the best one because he is the most balanced. Diego has the highest rating but he is only our second choice. There are other seven good players that can be used depending of your needs.

    Ronaldinho is a great player for who is looking for a skilly player. If his low pace is a problem, Bernard, Fernandinho, Coutinho and Óscar may be good alternatives. Unfortunately the four players are very weak physically. Paulinho has good defensive attributes and can be used as a CDM. With Kaka it is the opposite. The Brazilian AC Milan should only be used by those who want an attacking player.

    Our cheapest choice falls to Anderson and Jadson. Both may play very well as centre midfielders. The player of São Paulo is a 5 stars skills.

    Brazilian Right Wingers (RM, RW e RF)


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

    There are only four gold Brazilian right wingers, but two of them are top players: Hulk and Lucas.


    Hulk 84 Russia Premier League Zenit St. Petersburg
    Lucas 82 Ligue 1 Paris Saint-Germain
    Alan 79 Liga ZON SAGRES Braga
    Danilo Dias 76 Liga ZON SAGRES Marítimo


    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.

    In the world and for this position, only Juan Cuadrado and Jakub Blaszczykowski have better pace than Óscar. Hulk and Danilo Dias are also very fast players.


    Lucas 92 Ligue 1 Paris Saint-Germain
    Hulk 86 Russia Premier League Zenit St. Petersburg
    Danilo Dias 84 Liga ZON SAGRES Marítimo
    Alan 77 Liga ZON SAGRES Braga


    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.

    Lucas has the best dribbling among all the Brazilian players. No one can be compared to him in this aspect.


    Lucas 88 Ligue 1 Paris Saint-Germain
    Hulk 83 Russia Premier League Zenit St. Petersburg
    Alan 81 Liga ZON SAGRES Braga
    Danilo Dias 79 Liga ZON SAGRES Marítimo


    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.

    Lucas, Hulk and Alan have a passing very similar. Our choice is Hulk because he has the best crossing.


    Hulk 79 Russia Premier League Zenit St. Petersburg
    Alan 79 Liga ZON SAGRES Braga
    Lucas 78 Ligue 1 Paris Saint-Germain
    Danilo Dias 72 Liga ZON SAGRES Marítimo


    The side change by Lucas brought competition to Hulk. In the most important attributes, both are very similar. However, the Zenit’s player is much more balanced: he is very strong and aggressive, has an amazing stamina and his shots are very strong.

    Alan is slightly better than Danilo Dias, making him our economic choice.

    Best FUT 14 Brazilian Right Wingers



    Brazilian Left Wingers (LM, LW e LF)


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

    Willian is clearly the best Brazilian player for this position. No one can be compared with him.


    Willian 83 Premier League Chelsea
    Osvaldo 77 Campeonato Brasileiro São Paulo
    Fernandinho 75 Campeonato Brasileiro Atlético Mineiro
    Joãozinho 75 Russia Premier League FC Krasnodar


    Willian has an amazing pace but Osvaldo is even faster. He’s pace is higher than 90.


    Osvaldo 90 Campeonato Brasileiro São Paulo
    Willian 88 Premier League Chelsea
    Fernandinho 85 Campeonato Brasileiro Atlético Mineiro
    Joãozinho 79 Russia Premier League FC Krasnodar


    Ribéry is clearly the most highlighted left winger in this chapter. In the world and for this position, no one has better dribbling. Reus e Elia have good dribbling too.

    Excepting Joãozinho, all the Brazilian Left Wings have good dribbling. Willian is the best one.


    Willian 88 Premier League Chelsea
    Osvaldo 84 Campeonato Brasileiro São Paulo
    Fernandinho 80 Campeonato Brasileiro Atlético Mineiro
    Joãozinho 73 Russia Premier League FC Krasnodar


    Willian is clearly the best fitted passer between the remaining left wingers. Osvaldo and Fernandinho have bad passing skills.


    Willian 78 Premier League Chelsea
    Joãozinho 76 Russia Premier League FC Krasnodar
    Osvaldo 67 Campeonato Brasileiro São Paulo
    Fernandinho 66 Campeonato Brasileiro Atlético Mineiro


    Willian is the best Brazilian Left Winger. He has the best dribbling and passing, two of the three most important attributes. Fernandinho and Osvaldo have a bad passing while Joãozinho is slow and has a poor dribbling.

    Osvaldo is better than Fernandinho but he is too expensive for his quality. The winger of Atlético Mineiro is our economic choice.

    Brazilian Forwards (CF e ST)


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

    There are good Brazilian forwards but no one is as good as Neymar. Surprisingly, he was one of the players who got a downgrade compared to FUT 13, but he is still the best striker.


    Neymar 84 Liga BBVA FC Barcelona
    Diego Costa 83 Liga BBVA Atlético de Madrid
    Fred 82 Campeonato Brasileiro Fluminense
    Jonas 81 Liga BBVA Valencia CF
    Lima 80 Liga ZON SAGRES SL Benfica
    Luís Fabiano 80 Campeonato Brasileiro São Paulo

    Rafael Sóbis 76 Campeonato Brasileiro Fluminense
    Welliton 76 Campeonato Brasileiro São Paulo
    Kléber 76 Campeonato Brasileiro Grêmio


    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.

    Lima has the best shooting. Among all the Brazilian forwards, he is the one with the best power shot and has the second long shot stats.


    Lima 82 Liga ZON SAGRES SL Benfica
    Neymar 80 Liga BBVA FC Barcelona
    Fred 80 Campeonato Brasileiro Fluminense
    Diego Costa 78 Liga BBVA Atlético de Madrid

    Rafael Sóbis 74 Campeonato Brasileiro Fluminense
    Willian 74 Campeonato Brasileiro Cruzeiro
    Thiago Ribeiro 74 Campeonato Brasileiro Santos


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

    Leandro Damião is the best choice for who is looking a player with good heading. Like Fred, he is one of the tallest, with better jumping and that has the best heading accuracy. In the bottom of this list is Neymar.


    Leandro Damião 84 Campeonato Brasileiro Internacional
    Fred 82 Campeonato Brasileiro Fluminense
    82 Campeonato Brasileiro Atlético Mineiro
    Borges 81 Campeonato Brasileiro Cruzeiro

    Leo Baptistao 70 Liga BBVA Atlético de Madrid
    Leandro 68 Brazil Serie B Palmeiras
    Luiz Adriano 67 Ukraine Wyscha Liga Shakhtar Donetsk


    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.

    Neymar is one of the ten fastest forwards of the world. Due to his high price, Alexandre Pato is used many times as alternative. Emerson and Leandro are also fast players, but they are not great in the other attributes.

    Leo Baptistao 77 Liga BBVA Atlético de Madrid
    André 77 Campeonato Brasileiro Vasco da Gama


    Neymar is the best Brazilian forward and one of best in the whole world. He is the fastest, has the best dribbling, the best passing and has 5 stars skills and 5 stars weak foot. He can also plays as CF and CAM. However, he is a bit 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, Leandro Damião is the best one for who wants a player with good heading, Alexandre Pato for who wants a player really really fast and Lima for who is looking for a finisher. Diego Alves can also be an option. He has a bit of everything.

    Far from the quality of these four players, Jô and Welliton are our cheapest choices.

    Brazilian Team Suggestions


    A lot of people think that this is the most important part of the guide. It’s not. The thing that is really important to know is how to choose player based on their role and style of play that fits each player. And that is made in the previous chapters. The team suggestions that follow are simple graphic indicators of what we wrote previously. They should serve merely as orientation because it’s impossible to build a team that fits everyone. They depend on various factors we don’t know such as budget, formation, style of play and player preferences.

    To try and explore the needs of the maximum player as possible we suggest three teams with different budgets and formations: 4-1-2-1-2 with unlimited budget, 4-3-3 with 50k budget and 4-2-2 with a 12k budget.

    • Budget
    • 452,9 k coins (423,2 + 29,7k)

    • Summary
    • The choice for this team’s player was based on analysis made in the previous chapters.
      In goal, Diego Alvesr is probably one of the best goalkeeper of FUT 14. In centre back position, Thiago Silva is unquestionable. Even with a risky high/medium work rate, we have chosen David Luiz as the other CB since in this formation there is a CDM helping the back four. To that position, we have picked Felipe Melo instead of Ramires, because the Chelsea’s player is too weak physically. The fullbacks are probably the best of the world. Dani Alves is untouchable on the right side, while on the left Marcelo only has competition from Filipe Luis.
      Hernanes is the most balanced Brazilian player to play as CAM, but the choice can be different according to the play style. Ronaldinho, Kaká, Diego, Bernard, Fernandinho, Coutinho and Óscar are good choices.
      The two wingers are irreplaceable, the same happens with Neymar and Dieo Costa in the attack. These four players are the most expensive.

    • Budget
    • 51,9k coins (34,3k + 17,6k)

    • Summary
    • The choice for this team’s players was based on analysis made in the previous chapter.
      In goal, the goalkeepers are the same because they are really cheap. In the centre of the defence, Miranda and Felipe Santana ensure quality and speed by a low price. The full backs are still very fast but much cheaper. On the midfield, Ramires places on the centre helping the attack and the defence. Hernanes and Diego are the natural choices to the other two spots. On the attack, Lucas gives even more speed to the right side, while on the left Osvaldo tries to hide the lack of good Brazilian players to this position. The man of the goals is Diego Costa. He is a more balanced choice than Lima, Leandro Damião and Pato.

      ST: Welliton (0.5k)


    • Budget
    • 11.7k coins (6.3k + 5.4k)

    • Summary
    • The choice for this team’s players was based on analysis made in the previous chapter.
      In goal Diego Alves would be a great additional investment but we have chosen to give the spot to other goalkeepers. After the Valencia’s player, Gomes is the greatest best value for money. In front of him, Juan jesus and Manoel close the path to goal with the precious help of Elias. The Flamengo’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. Mariano and Rafinha are the full backs.
      The biggest new of this team is the double Alan / Fernandinho that with their pace and dribbling above the average give width to the attack. On the last third of the field, Lima and Leandro Damião complement each other. The first one is better on the ground, while the second is better by the air.



    Hybrid Squads


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

    To build hybrids squads with this nationality is an easy task since there are Brazilian players in the whole world. The team with greatest quality is the result of the combination of Brazilians with the BBVA. Neymar, Marcelo, Dani Alves and Diego Costa are key players in this connection.

    Building a good Hybrid team based in the BPL and in Brazilian players is also possible. Willian, David Luiz, Óscar and Ramires are essential in this hybrids.

    On an inferior level, and besides the Brazilian league, the players of this nationality still connects reasonably with other leagues, especially with the Bundesliga. Dante, Diego, Luiz Gustavo and Felipe Santana have their role in these hybrids.

    Follow our other league guide to easily build your hybrid team.

    Excellunt guide….n’ waitin’ for Serie A guideee


    Now I’m a fan or yours! I hope i found your site long time ago!! Good guide. 🙂 hats off from the PHilippines.


    Hello Rodrigo, another great guide!
    I decided to build a Brazilian team too: I find it great and cheaper than many other teams.
    The only annoying thing is that, since there are no Brazilian coachs, I don’t manage to have 10 chemistry for every player 🙁


    Hello,great guide but I would like to know which chemistry styles to put on these players
    4-1-4-1 formation
    Gk-Diego Alves
    Lb-Dani alves/Danilo
    Cb-David Luiz
    Cb-Thiago silva
    Rb-Felipe luis
    Cdm-Felipe Melo
    St-Pato/LimaLeandro damio?
    If you could also give me so advice please,many thanks Jono


    Gk: glove or cat
    Lb&Rb: shadow
    Cbs: anchor
    Cdm: Pas & Def +3 (guardian i think)
    Cms: catalyst/artist (artist is my preference)
    Lm&Rm: catalyst
    St: Hunter/Finisher/Sniper/Marksman, deadeye if you pass with st a lot


    lol adi is the best lb of Brazil in game and anyone talk her


    Amazing site, very helpful. I was wondering if you had the time if you could suggest a hybrid team worth about 1mil coins. I like to counter and play stingy defense.


    Thanks for this guide.
    I just want to say that for me, Diego Alves is very disappointing and Jefferson (after more than ten matches) is much better.


    In my brazil team I play 4-2-3-1 (2) my defence is Diego Alves, Dani Alves, Silva, MIranda, Marcelo and my attacking quartet Hulk, Neymar, Willian and Costa. For the middle 2 cdm im going with upgraded Felipe Melo but cant decide on his partner. Options are 1: Alex Song who I can fit in with a 10 chemistry, tho Willians chemistry drops to 8. 2: Hernanes, though im unsure his defensive stats are strong enough or 3: David Luiz, I realise he’s a cb but I think his stats suit the position really well and his chemistry would be a reasonable 7 with all around him 10? What do you think or do you have any other suggestions?


    Hi my friend its me again!

    St: Pato and Costa
    LM: Osvaldo
    RM: hulk
    CDM: leiva and melo
    LB: felipe luis
    Cb: david Luiz and miranda
    Rb: maicon

    Is my formation applicable with my team? If no, whats your best preference? Any changes that I need?

    Cheers and thanks!
    Maleko from PH


    Diego Alves has SIF card now! Yay! Might be pretty good.


    First I want to tell that your guide is very good.

    My team now:
    Dani Alves (juanfran)Sergio Ramos (varane)Pepe (Miranda) jordi alba(marcelo)

    Di Maria(Pedro) iniesta(song) fabregas (or modric) griezeman(guardado)

    Neymar (Costa)Benzema

    This team is worth around 600k and i have also 400k extra Coins

    I want to build a team with thiago Silva and Ramos in defence and aguero and neymar in the attack.i can’t find a team with 100 chemistry.could you help me please with find the richt players?

    Bas van Gorp

    Hello there,
    I’ve never seen such a detailed guide, thank you so much. My budget is around 45K and I find it difficult to choose a CAM, a LW/LM and a second CDM. My playstyle is a little bit defensive. I often seem to get less posession than my opponent, but still manage to beat him 3-0.

    GK: Diego Alves, loved him and especially his cat-like reflexes.
    CB: David Luiz and Dante. I’ve used Dante before and I never manage to get past David Luiz. For me, they’re the closest you can get to a unbeatable giant.
    LB: Marcelo & Maicon. I don’t know why I chose these guys, but they’ll do the job.
    RM: Hulk, I always look for wingers with pace and strength combined.
    CDM: Fernando and Felipe Melo. I’m not sure about these two though. Fernando was amazing for me and Felipe Melo looks amazing. Never used him though. I did use Luiz Gustavo and he was amazing. Only downside is his strength.
    CAM: Diego or Bernard. I hate Ronaldinho’s lack of pace and I think Oscar is just too weak. And yes, so does Bernard but you got to love his pace, considering he’s a CAM.
    LM/LW: The perfect option would be Willian and I’m saving for him. I like strength and pace combined like I said before, which leads me to Caiuby or Locomotiv Moscow’s Maicon. Only downside? They’re silver players.
    ST: Diego Costa. I have him on my current team, next to Aubameyang. He is amazing and his decent pace combined with his amazing strength is amazing.

    Can you give me advice about the best CAM, LW/LM and CDM, taking my playstyle in consideration. I am pretty skilled in defending but I’m not really a so called ‘killer’ at scoring goals.

    I’ll provide a link with my current team. Should I swap it for a Brazilian one or should I keep it?

    My apologies for this endless post and too detailed explanation, but thank you in advance.

    Greetings from the Netherlands,


    Nice guide Rodrigo !
    Now, I’m getting a question. Should i buy striker first ? GK first ? or even a CB first ?
    Help me please ! sry for bad english

    Callum Simpson

    Hey ! Great guide I found it very useful. I just switched to a top level Brazil team I had a French league team but I saw my IF’s dropping in value very quickly and I have lost a bit of money from selling them. Could you explain why this happens , also how I can get all of my players to have 10 chemistry !?

    Many thanks ! Keep up the good work


    Why is Ramires the sub for Felipe Melo? Shouldn’t Luiz Gustavo be there? He is a better CDM than Ramires (though Ramires is a much better CM).


    To make an hybrid i should necessarily use Salino, how is he?


    Hello Rodrigo. Awesome job from you! As a player with canaries I agree with you with every tip.

    …My Brazil team is:
    Diego Alves
    Dani Alves—Thiago Silva—David Luiz—Marcelo
    Felipe Melo/Paulinho
    Bernard — Hernanes/Ramires
    Hulk — Lima — Neymar

    I’m using a formation 4-3-3 (no. 5)
    But my only problem is Neymar, which card is ST… for me, clearly the best ST is Lima, because of his power shots and heading. Neymar is used to be a left winger because of his stats .. 🙁 His chemistry is only 4, which is very bad. What do you think about changing the formation to 4-3-2-1?
    All players could have chemistry 10, but Neymars’ will be rised to 7, which is not so bad.
    Do you think that chemistry is so so important for player to play better, or his stats affect this issue the same way?
    Thanks for reply.


    Yeah and important thing is that my style that I never change is playing with 3 attackers = 2 wingers + striker ..


    I’m using the 4-2-3-1(2) formation and I had costa as my striker but now that they have made costa Spanish I don’t know who to replace him with.
    Here is my team:
    Gk: Diego Alves
    Rb: Alves
    Cb: luiz, Silva
    Lb: Marcelo
    CDM: Ramires, upgraded Felipe Melo
    CAM: upgraded Oscar
    LM: Willian
    RM: Hulk
    ST: ?

    Please let me know who’s the best striker for my team and give me tips to improve my team. Thanks


    Hi Rodrigo! I see that you are using database stats of players in your guides. Are you aware that the ingame stats (that you see in pause menu “team management”) of most players differ from those in the databases?

    Thanks for your awesome guides!

    Especially now that Oscar received an upgrade, you can use him to make an amazing BPL hybrid team. My current team:

    RB: Dani Alves
    LB: Marcelo
    CB: Thiago Silva, David Luiz
    CDM: Felipe Melo
    CAM: Oscar
    LM: Willian
    RM: Hulk
    ST: Samuel Eto, Sergio Aguero

    Only Hulk suffers from chemistry in this squad.


    Ive been playing around with the 352 formation what team would you suggest for this formation love the site keep up good work


    opps sorry with 400k budget


    I like to pass around alot and cross when i cant get through the middle starting to learn how to dribble better i try to get out on the break so i can get 1 on 1 with goalie dont really have a certain type of thing i do but i pefer atleast one attacker to be strong since im not so great at dribbling yet no league preferences my first year playing fifa thanks again! And i have a 400k budget


    i know i said 352 but i also like this


    Are there still any Brazilian Diego Costa cards available? Because searching through the market, I can only find Costas who represent Spain. He switched national teams in Sept/ Oct last year. But are there any BRA cards on the market, does anyone know?


    Why is David Luiz in CB position instead of Dante? Hummels was fast enough for a 4xx formation and Dante is faster. David Luiz has bad defending stats. Isnt Dante a better choice?


    Do you think it is possible to make a hybrid of all 5 major leagues with all 10 chemistry?


    My team plays a 41212 formation and the players are
    Gk Diego alves
    Rb dani alves
    Lb Marcelo
    Cb thiago silva Dante
    Cdm up felipe melo
    Lm Willian
    Rm hulk
    Cam hernanes
    St Alexandre pato Lima
    Any suggestions besides neymar and Diego costa cause of budget and nation change respectively


    hi man.

    i seem to have a problem finding costa as a brazil. when i look for him he is spain???


    Felt like sharing the “most improved” leagues. The leagues that have received the most IFs this year. Only Gold IFs counted cuz i dont follow silver players. No TOTY or TOTS, just TOTW.
    1) BPL: 80 IFs
    2) BBVA: 61 IFs
    3) Serie A: 53 IFs
    4) Ligue 1: 42 IFs
    5) Bundesliga: 38 IFs

    So EA, i know you’ll probs never see this, but give the Bundesliga more IFs! 🙂


    Hi Rodrigo,

    Just a quick question. I have Dante and Luiz as my centre backs and am looking to buy Thiago Silva as a replacement for one of them. In your opinion, which one should I replace?

    My squad right now is almost the same. I play with a 4-2-3-1 formation. Diego Alves; Dani Alves, David Luiz, Thiago Silva, Marcelo; Luis Gustavo, Felipe Melo; Willian, TOTY Firmino, Hulk; Neymar. Any way I can improve my team? or what chemistry style would help? every info is appreciated. Thanks. By the way, keep up the good work. I used this site last year too. it’s pretty awesome


    Also, I like to play a slow build up play by passing around trying to find space. but I also counterattack sometimes. what formation do you suggest? or any changes in style?

    Nice one! I bought my FIFA 14 copy yesterday, and i’m already addicted to it! I’ve been searching for tips websites, and your’s is a great one! (sorry for the poor english, i’m brazillian). I’m building a BR team for myself, and i already started buying a few good players. I’ve got Diego Alves, Dante, Lima and Bernard. My favorite real life br player is Hulk, so i really want him on my team, and i’m glad he’s as good in the game as he’s in real life (except for weak foot, he’s like 2 stars in FIFA, but he’s AT LEAST a 4 stars in real life).
    I’m already following your FB page. Cheers, man!


    A very informative guide. Thanks

    Just one question. I have build a brazilian and bundesliga hybrid squad but the problem is i cant find a brazilian coach. I thought i would find a brazilian coach and would give him a bundesliga card so everybody will get the manager bonus point. Can u help me and guide me?


    Ok i’ll keep that in mind. So one thing, if the manager is german and i give him a Campeonato do Brasil card so all the brazil players will get the bonus point? Bec some of my brazil players are from la liga, others are from epl etc?


    Thank you very much. You solved my problem. I hope u dont get annoyed by my so many questions cuz i wana ask u one last question:) . I have Deigo as Cam and i also have TOTS Raffael as cam but i want to use one of them as a CM and the other as a Cam. Would u help me and tell me whih one should i change to CM? Diego or Raffael?

    Diego stats
    76 pac. 87 drib…. 78 shot…. 52 defence…. 83 pas…. 62 heading

    TOTS Raffael stats
    82 pac….. 90 drib…. 80 sho…. 58 def…. 78… Pas… 71 heading


    Hello Rodrigo,

    i sell my serie A squad and i try now build brasilian squad, i have now:

    GK: Alves,Helton GLOVE
    CB: Silva, Luiz, Dante, Miranda – ROCK
    LB: Marcelo, Filipe Luiz – BACKBONE
    RB: Maicon – ROCK, Danilo – SENTINEL
    CM (CDM): Melo (upg), Paulinho, Ramires – BACKBONE
    CAM: Hernanes, Oscar (upg) – MAESTRO
    RM/RW: Hulk – HAWK, Lucas – CTA
    LM/LW: Willian – ENGINE
    CF: Pato, Lima, Fred – HAWK

    i have a little bit problem, i dont know which Formation i can use. I tried 3-5-2, but i become a lot of goals from crosses (wings – cross – head). I like play counter and 2 strikers (mayby wings?), i try 4-2-3-1 (2), but here ist only one striker and brasilian striker are not to strong ( mayby fred – slow, but pato, he is only quick,..) and i would like use HULK as RW, because his shooting are incredible. I think HULK – RM is bad decision, because i can not 100% used his shooting. Mayby one formation with LW/RW? What do you think?


    So since there is no Ukrayina Liha…I’ve been trading Bernard for a while, bidding 1300 and selling for 1900. And I’ve just realized that he is 5* skills and 4* weak foot. So with 91 pace, 76 passing (reasonable enough) 86 dribbling, 4* WF, 5* skills, and a price tag of only 1300 coins, he seems to be very underrated to me. Could you help me build a Ukrayina Liha/Liga BBVA hybrid in 4-2-2-2? For the front 4 I’m thinking either:
    1) Modric, Eduardo, Wellington Nem/Alex Teixeira IF (at ST)/Neymar, Bernard
    2) Neymar (CAM), Wellington Nem, Alex Teixeira IF (ST), Bernard
    Or 3) Bernard, Wellington Nem, Neymar, Iniesta


    What do you think of :

    GOL – Fabio
    DEF – Dedé / Miranda
    LB – Adriano
    RB – Danilo
    MID – Everton Ribeiro / Fernandinho / Ramires
    ATA – Diego Costa / Lucas / Fernandinho


    Thanks a lot for the guide. Its the best I have found on internet. I will check the other guides as well.
    Hats off from Bangladesh.

    St: pato and Lima
    Diego alves
    Alex ac Milan
    Filipe Luiz
    Maicon Roma
