FIFA 13 Ultimate Team Liga BBVA Squad

Liga BBVA Squad Guide for FIFA 14 Ultimate Team


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


Building a FIFA 13 Ultimate Team Liga BBVA Squad


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

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

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

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


Liga BBVA and FIFA 13 Ultimate Team


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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

Let’s get going!


Liga BBVA’s Goalkeepers (GK)


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

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


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


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

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

Diego Alves 90 Brazil Valencia CF

Victor Valdés 84 Spain FC Barcelona
Andrés Fernández 84 Spain CA Osasuna
Claudio Bravo 83 Chile Real Sociedad
Cristian Darío Álvarez 83 Argentina RCD Espanyol
Casto 81 Spain Real Betis Balompié
Codina 79 Spain Getafe CF
Roberto 79 Spain Granada CF
Keylor Navas 78 Costa Rica Levante UD
Rubén 78 Spain Rayo Vallecano


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

Diego Alves 91 Brazil Valencia CF

Casto 84 Spain Real Betis Balompié
Sergio Asenjo 81 Spain Atlético de Madrid
Keylor Navas 81 Costa Rica Levante UD
Roberto 80 Spain Granada CF
Rubén 79 Spain Rayo Vallecano


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


Thibaut Courtois 198 Belgium Atlético de Madrid
Diego López 196 Spain Sevilla FC
Roberto 192 Spain Real Zaragoza

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


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

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

Liga BBVA’s Centre Backs (CB)


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

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


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


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

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

Puyol 87 Spain FC Barcelona
Piqué 86 Spain FC Barcelona
Sergio Ramos 84 Spain Real Madrid
Pepe 84 Portugal Real Madrid
Adil Rami 84 France Valencia CF

Fontàs 77 Spain FC Barcelona
Lolo 76 Spain CA Osasuna
Ansotegi 75 Spain Real Sociedad
Rafa 74 Spain Getafe CF
Raúl Rodríguez 74 Spain RCD Espanyol


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

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


Sergio Ramos 88 Spain Real Madrid
Puyol 84 Spain FC Barcelona

Ricardo Costa 84 Portugal Valencia CF
Damien Perquis 84 Poland Real Betis Balompié

Íñigo López 87 Spain Granada CF
Mario 79 Spain Real Betis Balompié
Álvaro González 78 Spain Real Zaragoza
Samuel 78 Spain RC Celta de Vigo
Mikel Gonzalez 77 Spain Real Sociedad


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

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


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


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

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

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


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

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


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


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


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


Arbeloa 82 Spain Real Madrid
Dani Alves 79 Brazil FC Barcelona
Iraola 79 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao
Juanfran 79 Spain Atlético de Madrid
Jesús Gámez 79 Spain Málaga CF
Cristian Sapunaru 78 Romania Real Zaragoza

Filipe Luís 78 Brazil Atlético de Madrid
Jérémy Mathieu 77 France Valencia CF
Juanfran 77 Spain Levante UD
Aurtenetxe 75 Spain Athletic Club de Bilbao
Antonio López 75 Spain RCD Mallorca


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

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

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


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

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


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

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


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

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

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


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

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


Xavi 90 Spain FC Barcelona
Cesc Fàbregas 87 Spain FC Barcelona
Mesut Özil 87 Germany Real Madrid

André Santos 74 Portugal RC Deportivo
Anthony Annan 74 Ghana CA Osasuna
Apoño 74 Spain Real Zaragoza
Baena 74 Spain RCD Espanyol
De Lucas 74 Spain RC Celta de Vigo


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

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


Xavi 93 Spain FC Barcelona

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


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

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


Arda Turan 89 Turkey Atlético de Madrid

Masoud 86 Iran CA Osasuna
Emiliano Armenteros 78 Argentina CA Osasuna
Zurutuza 77 France Real Sociedad
Franco Vázquez 76 Argentina Rayo Vallecano
Anthony Annan 75 Ghana CA Osasuna


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

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

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


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

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


Ángel Di María 86 Argentina Real Madrid
Alexis Sánchez 85 Chile FC Barcelona

Reyes 81 Spain Sevilla FC
Camuñas 75 Spain RC Deportivo
Eliseu 75 Portugal Málaga CF
Gavilán 75 Spain Getafe CF


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

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

Juan Carlos 88 Spain Real Betis Balompié


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

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

Diego Castro 82 Spain Getafe CF


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

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

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

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

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

Liga BBVA’s Attackers (CF e ST)


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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

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

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

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


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

  • CM: Arda Turan 2.0k

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  6. can u rate my la logs team and tell me how to improve it
    Diego alves gk
    pepe piqué macharino CB
    song. Sergio busquet CDM
    Pedro LM. Jesus navas RM
    kaka cam
    soldano. higuaín. st
    who do u suggest I buy to make it better and keep it at 100 chemistry

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

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

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

    please some tips and maybe another formation

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  13. Can you rate my team

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

    regards nicklas

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

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

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

  20. Hi, great article, I ‘ve learning so much of FUT because of this, I have a problem, everytime that i want to play online or play against a friend squad or online or playing the TOTW, my ps3 freezes and what seems weird for me is that it only happens in FUT because I can normally play Online in other game modes without having a problem, so it would be awesome if you could help me with that, this is my team that I could manage to make by only playing offline and buying packs with fifa points.
    OVERALL 81


  21. O yh soz for asking to questions but can u also tel me a rm, lm, rb, lb another cb and another st all for the same liga bbva 25k squad. Thnx and gr8 article

  22. Great analysis
    I have a brazilian squad how much money will it give me
    GK Fábio
    CB Alex Silva, Réver, Edu Dracena
    RM Jorge Enrique CM Rafinha, Arouca LM Emerson
    CF Rafael Sóbis
    ST Luís Fabiano, Leandro Damião

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  27. Budget 30k any imptovements
    GK 82 Alves or lopez 3.0
    CB 81 Amorembieta 1.0
    CB 86 Mascherano 4.5
    CB 84 Rami 2.0
    CM 85 Busquets 4.5
    CM 83 Song 3.0
    RM 85 Navas 4.0
    LM 82 Guardado 1.5
    RW 85 Sanchez 2.0
    LW 85 Villa 4.5
    ST 85 Higuain 2.5
    Total: 33.0


    GK 82 Alvez 2.0
    LB 81 Coentrao 2.0
    CB 85 Pepe 7.0
    RB 80 Pereira 1.0
    CDM 85 Busquets 1.5
    LM 84 Pedro 4.5
    RM 85 Navas 3.0
    CAM 84 Kaka 2.0
    ST 84 Soldado 1.5
    ST 85 Higuain 2.5
    Total: 27.0

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

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

  29. whos betta modric or ,ata for ma team

    Xabi alonso
    Modric or mata

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

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

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

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

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

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

  31. Hey , can u rate my team and can suggest few improvements .

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

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

  33. Hello, First of all, continue the great job.. I’m a FAN! 😀

    i’ve been working in a BBVA squad, can you give me an opinion about this (i just have a 100k budget) so it’s complicated..

    Diego Alves
    J.Pereia – Pepe – Miranda – F.Coentrão
    Navas – Guardado
    Falcão – Higuain

    This is 4-1-2-1-2, but i’ve been thinking also in 4-2-3-1.. I dont KNOW! eheheh


    • Hi. It’s good to know.
      It’s seems that you are portuguese. If this is the case (great club anyway! :)), you can access the portuguese version of our website HERE.
      About the formation, it depends of your preferences and play style. You can take a look to our formations guide and decide which one seems better to you.
      For that budget we think that you already have the best team possible. The players that you chose are the same that we would choose. If you save some more coins you can try Modric or, even better, Ozil to Kaka place.
      Best regards!

  34. Hi, i really like your guide.

    I have a 45k budget, is not much but i need your help to build a mid-good cheap team, better than your 25k team. what can i improve? i don’t buy any player yet.
    I like keeping the ball and do a lot of passes. searching for the perfect moment to shoot or to make a deep pass to my striker for him to run to the ball. (sry bad english, i’m Chilean)

    Also, i don’t know if i will use 4-4-2 or 4-1-2-1-2, what do you recommend for my style of play? But i think i can play well in the 2 formations. They’re my favorites.

    That’s all, thank you and good bye :)!

    • Hi!
      The main difference between 4-4-2 and 4-1-2-1-2 is that in the first one you can play by the wings and in the second one you play more by the middle. It’s up to you to choose what is more familiar with your play style.
      About your team:
      Carlos Kameni, João Pereira, Pepe, Miranda, Filipe Luís, Alberto Costa, Arda Turan, Navas, Andrés Guardado, Soldado and Higuain.

  35. Hi, i need your help.

    I have a 35k budget and i don’t know what to use. I’m between 2 teams. My playstyle if very, very passy, and also i try a lot from outside the box. Sometimes i try crossing because i use my LM and RM a lot.


    Juan fran – Rami – Miranda – Filipe
    Feghouli – Song – Isco – Guardado
    Soldado – Negredo (what about Adrian? he is very fast, i dont know which ST will be Soldado’s partner.)

    and 4-1-2-1-2
    This is not very different than the first formation, but has a few changes:

    Juanfran – Miranda – Rami – Filipe
    Feghouli – Guardado
    Turan(Isco is a option too, what do you think?)
    Soldado – Negredo (Adrian)

    I would really apreciate your help. I really don’t know what to use. I have a 35k budget, but i haven’t bought any player yet. I just sell my Bundesliga team.

    • Hi.
      Nice to have you here with us.
      If you use your LM and RM a lot, you should buy the first team.
      If you use a lot of skills, buy Turan. Otherwise, Isco can be a option. But we still think that Turan is better and he will be cheaper now since he has a new UP card.
      Negredo is better ST than Adrian except on the pace. And pace is so important in FUT 13. It’s up to you to decide what is more important to you.

  36. Hi, which cheap CB (not pepe or sergio ramos) can you recommend me to replace Rami, i’m not comfortable with him because he is very slow and in my current division ii can’t do well in speed against good players with just Miranda.

  37. Hi, in my 4-4-2 i want a defensive CM and a offensive. I have arda turan for the offensive but i don’t know who is better for the defensive, busquets, medel, song or essien.. what do you think?

    • Hi.
      Usually we do the same thing. On our 4-4-2, one of the CM’s is more offensive and the other one more defensive. Between those players, Song and Essien defend better. Both have high defensive Work Rate which is very important. One is fastest and the other one attacks better.

  38. 4-1-2-1-2
    Gk – diego alves
    Rb – jao perieira , Juanfran
    cb – pique and pepe , mirallas
    lb – Alba
    cdm – Xabi , song
    LM Villa
    Rm – maria , navas
    CAm – Fabre , Ozil
    St – higuain , falcao , Benzema , Kaka
    Diego alves is my 1st team Gk , and if I buy valdez who should i play in my team ?
    I have pique , mirallas and pepe i want to buy another Cb whom i should i buy puyol or maschaerano ?
    I dnt have LM backup . Wht if I buy Lavezzi will he really bother my team ?

    • Hi.
      We prefer Diego Alves but Valdez is also good. Since all your players already have individual chemistry 9 (with right formations and positions), they will give the same chemistry points.
      Our suggestion is to play with both (one at a time :)) and decide who played better.
      Puyol or Mascherano ? For us Mascherano is better because he is mush faster than Puyol. Even with great heading, the Spanish is too slow.
      Lavezzi in that team will not affect the team chemistry and probably will not affect the individual chemistry of his team mates. But his individual chemistry will not be higher than 6 which means that he will not play everything he knows.

        • Hey after completing my targeted team , with all your suggestion i have only 8000 coins left now , as you in Lm position David Villa is the only option and guardado as backup and in Rm position Di maria and jesus nava , i play jesus navas in Lm as Vila ‘s backup then the chemistry is only 6 and its will hurt ihis game play , so bbuying iniesta for something around 130 k will be gud option ? as it wil take more then 2 weeks or to earn so much coins ?

          • Hi. Iniesta is a gret player, everybody knows that. But he is not fast enough for most of the gamers. If it is not a problem to you, go ahead. It’s better than playing with someone that has individual chemistry 6, for sure.

    • I have a another general problem with my fifa 13 , i have 14 friends and out of them 8 plays fifa ultimate team , but in my friends squad its showing onnly 5 of them i have asked the rest 3 they said , every1’s else squad is showing except mine , what can be the solution ?

        • hi, pace and crossing is a major priority in my team . dat is the only reason why i am not preffering vila . who would be the better option ? dont tel me ronaldo as he is out of reach !
          Regarding the problem , yes they are in PC and i have removed and added one of my friends still its not working ., is there any way to contact Ea in this matter ?

          • To contact EA read our article about it.
            If you want pace and passing, why not try Guardado? He is good on that.
            There are other player that seems to be good. Some gamers give us very good feedback about him: Eliseu UP. He has pace 92! You should try him.

          • hey, I tried to contact Ea but there are no option of contact unliker mention in your step 5 . After seleting the console and type of problem , they are showing some previous questions datz it . Is it no available in India or what ?
            Apart from the problem , Wjat is the meaning of top squad and what is its significance ? I have a top squad of 188 is it good enuf ?

          • Hi.
            As we wrote on our article, the contact options may vary depending of your region. We don’t know which ones are available on India. On UK, for example, all contact options are available.
            The Top Squad is the quality of a club according to the chemistry and classification of your strongest squad. For us, it is useless. But 188 is fine. You can learn more here.

  39. Hello
    I am playing 4-3-3, and i looked through your analysis. It really helped me to build a squad. At the moment I am searching for a right winger. Is Navas better than Sanchez?

  40. Hi,
    awesome page!!! I really appreciate your efforts, but can you help me by giving me advices so I can build a better squad? Tanks you.
    I currently play a 4-2-3-1 with:
    GK: Diego Alves
    CB: Pepe – Rami/Miranda (I have them both but which one is better?)
    LB: Filipe Luís
    RB: João Pereira
    CDM: Busquets – Song/Khedira (which two to choose?)
    CAM: Ozil – Modric
    CF: Callejon
    ST: Higuain
    This is my current squad and I only have 10k (nothing) but planning to save more. QUESTION: Could you tell me which players to use currently and which one of the best to buy later by order of importance for my squad?
    Thanks for detailed answer 🙂

    • Thanks for your support.
      We really like to see that you spend a lot of coins on a good CB. Most of players only want to buy attackers. Pepe is awesome and he will give you safety to your back line.
      If you are conceding lots of goals on counters, you should use Miranda. Otherwise, Rami defends better.
      We don’t know what is your play style and your preferences but, in our opinion, you should use Song instead of Khedira. He is faster and, since Busquets is a bit slow, you should put a fast player to help him on fast plays.
      In our opinion you can place Ozil as CF and buy Turan UP to CAM. This is the priority number one. Xabi Alonso is the second and Alba the third.

      • Waw, thanks for your quick reply. Ok, first, I play quick passes so quick play and I have the same problem EVERY match: I am playing in the first online division of FUT (it is the fifth consecutive time I stay in it), and when I play matches, I almost ALWAYS score first but always fail to keep the lead especially in the second half when the player pushes all of his team to the attack, I always take from him the ball but as soon as I take the ball from him or if I shoot to clear the danger, my opponent ALWAYS get the ball and score, so by my defenders mistake, so maybe Miranda is faster for me… And if you can give more tips I would be grateful.

        Second, you told me to change Ozil position to CF and put in CAM Turan which I already have as a sub :p (with Kaka and Thiago) so should I put Turan?

        For the players I should buy, you told me Alonso and Alba. I was planning to have them but I don’t know if I will ever have the time or the Patience to get money for Ramos or even for Benzema… Any advice on how should I plan my next buying plans considering my problems and my wishes?
        Thanks 🙂

        • Hi.
          You can change your formation or you players but the most important thing is how you play. You need to be calm.
          Almost everytime we score first, we win the match. When it happens, we analyse the opponent and adapat our strategy. If he seems to be good, we fall back our lines and play on counter. If he seems to be weak, we continue to attack because we believe that we will score again soon. You need to be confident and focus. Mental factors are very important on FUT 13. And, of course, Miranda will help you to fix this problem.
          We don’t have sure if Ozil CF and Turan CAM will work for you, but we believe that is a good decision. You will need to try and see if it is a good improvement or not.
          The best way to plan our buys is to do it one by one. Find who is more important to your team and buy him. Ramos and Benzema are expensive and should keep them for later.

          • Hi,
            I finally bought Benzema and my next players will surely be Alba and Alonso.
            But could you tell me what is the best formation in attack that I should have with my players? I thought of:
            For CAM: Modric-Ozil /Turan/Kaka
            For CF: Higuain /Benzema/Callejon/Ozil
            For ST: Benzema / Higuain

          • Yes, I kept the 4-2-3-1, but when I bought Benzema, I thought of reputting Ozil as CAM with Modric , in CF Higuain and in ST Benzema. (In the previous comment, I meant by the “/” the subs and by the “-” the other CAM)

          • Hi, it seems very good in attack. Now I need to fix my defense. I will buy this weekend Jordi Alba. But for CDM, you told me about Alonso, but I am worried about his pace because often Song or Busquets come to assist in attacks or in counter attacks so if Alonso comes, he will never go back at time :p this is why I don’t know if I should put Fabregas as CDM? I know his position is far from being CDM because of his defense but I don’t know, I guess you understood my problem. Thanks in advance.

          • We understand. If you want someone to help the defence, Busquets, Fábregas and Essien shouldn’t be the better option since they don’t have high defensive work rate. It’s true that Xabi is a bit slow but he is a very good player. If it is a problem to you, you can try Song. He has balanced attributes and he is fast enough.

          • I already have Song. I decided (tell me if it is good) to replace Busquets by Alonso and keep Song as CDM this way I have a good paced CDM and a very strong CDM (even if slow) because with Busquets they will be two slow CDM.
            Thanks for all of your advices and sorry for asking a lot.

          • Hi,
            my squad is now excellent! Thanks. I am winning most of my matches but losing them by DNF because my connection is very bad… EA should not consider I lost by DNF if I was Winning the match… 🙁
            Anyway, I came herefor asking what should I do with the coin I am gaining now (17 k) ? I am planning for Ramos since my squad is very good but it will take me a looot of time… Do you have any other advice or waiting for Ramos is the best thing to do?
            Thanks again.

          • Hi.
            About your DNF, you can try to use wired coonection, to open router ports to FIFA 13 or, in last case, to get NAT 1.
            Ramos is extremely expensive. If you play a lot, as it seems, you should check if you have enough managers to get 50% contract bonus. Then, you should check if the players on your bench can play as good as the start eleven. Only the, you should think on Ramos.

          • Hi,
            Thanks for your detailed answer, but I already have all of these :p
            The problem is not actually my connection, but the electricity cutting down and although I put the modem/router on the UPS, it still cut down so I need to buy another modem(I already put it on DMZ).
            Yes, I have a good bench(Kameni-Filipe Luis-Varane-Rami-Juanfran-Khedira-Manu del moral-Callejon-Kaka-Turan-Carlos Vela for his pace very useful offline), always winning offline in any difficulty when I when to rest my first team . And I already have 50 % contracts with managers.
            So I guess I should now consider saving money for Ramos. What do you advise me to play offline when I want to rest my first team after online division?

  41. My team is:
    GK Hart, RB Maicon, CB Vermalen and Kompany, LB Cole, LM Nani, RM Valencia, CDM Yaya Toure, CAM Silva, ST Aguero and Balotelli.

    I want to sell it and get a La liga squad should I do this and who should I get?

    • Hi!
      You are posting your BPL team on BBVA post ? 🙂
      If you want, you can read our BPL guide.
      Our suggestions depend of your play style and preferences. We do not know if you are going well with RVP, for example.
      Anyway, we will try to help you with our opinion.
      The first thin that we are a bit concern is about your CB’s. Both are great CB’s but both are a bit slow. You should try to buy a fast CB as Vermaelen.
      If you save more coins, you should try to invest on Touré. Both your CM’s are attacking and most of the times is very usefull to have one CM with good defensive attributes and Work rate.

  43. He guys.
    Great website you have! And very nice to see how much effort you put in reacting to peoples questions. Keep up the good work!

    Since I am also working on a BBVA team (433). This is what I already bought:

    — Falcao–Di Maria
    — — Fabregas

    When my old team is sold my budget will be around 95/100 k. So with this coins I ll have to full in at least 3 positions.
    What would you advice?
    I was thinking of Buying Iniesta or Xavi and go cheap with the other positions..
    Thanks a lot

    • Thanks a lot.
      It depends of your play style and preferences. We think that you already have very good players.
      If you buy Xavi, our suggestion is to buy Xabi and one of the following: David Villa, Pedro, Guardado or Eliseu UP.
      If you buy Iniesta, our suggestion is to buy Xabi and Modric (Ozil is better but more expensive too).

  44. Hi I play a 5-2-2-1 and have this team
    Gk casilias
    Lb marcelo
    RB Alves
    Cb pepe piqué poyul
    Cm xavi and ozil
    Rf di Maria
    Lf iniesta
    St 89 falcao

    Res David villa xabi frebregas rammi solado Valdes and navas

    Any changes I could make to improve I have 50k spare plus how much could I sell them for? Also I know the formation is different but it works for me I was wondering if you know any similar ones because I just don’t have enough attacking space always end up with 3 past the half way line which doesn’t help most my games end with 1 goal difference eg 2-1.

    • You already have a fantastic team. You can not improve it much more since Messi and Ronaldo are too expensive.
      You have a good bench too. With that money you can buy Benzema or save for Sergio Ramos.
      The only way to improve this team is to make it an hybrid. We don’t think you need it but you can try.
      About the formation, read our guide to know which one is better to you.

  45. hi ! I want a LM who can crosses great . Will Iniesta be a good option ? I have vila and guardao crrently . But their vila r crosses arent perfect enuf . and Guardado , well this lad can run but because of poor work rate , shooting and passing do not make m,uch hell of a difference n my team . What if the the individual chem of certain player is 7 or 8 . How it affects their game ?

  46. My team is a hybrid BBVA/Budsliga
    GK- Neur
    CB- Pepe, Hummel
    CDM- Xavi Alonso, Schweinsteiger
    CAM- Modic, Götze
    CF- Ozil
    ST- Bensema

    Bench- Victor Valdes, Higuain, Essien, Khedira, Fabio Coentrao, Sergio Ramos, Puique

    i Currently have 150k who would you recommend me to buy for this hybrid team.

    • Hi.
      We must to say this: your team is one of the most original and most stronger that we ever find. And you have a good bench. Congratulations. Very good work.
      Just one question: all your player have individual chemistry 9?
      It is very difficult to suggest players to improve your squad since you already have the good ones. Did you tried Casillas? He is probably better than Neuer but for the chemistry he is not so good. If you don’t know who to buy, you can start buying IF players (Pepe, for example).

  47. my team:
    rating: 84
    chemestry: 100
    manager: Del Bosqué: Spain €3.000

    GK: Diego Alves: rating:83 – Brazil – Valencia CF €2.000

    • Hi.
      Very good BBVA team. We only want to give you a suggestion, if you don’t mind. We know that you play with 2 CDM’s but your CB’s, Puyol and Mascherano, are a bit slow and can compromise your team. When you got some more coins (7k maybe), you can replace the weaker one by Pepe. He is one of our favourites CB’s of FUT13.

      • ok thanks,
        I think I’ll buy Pepe instead of Puyol when I have enough coins.
        Sergio Ramos is just the ULTIMATE defender, but he’s to expensive for me.

  48. Hi I have jordi Alaba in lb ,song in CDM ozil in cam and falco in ls . In lm I have villa who isnt quick so if I buy hazard or bale and aplly right formation what will be the chemistry .?
    Ozil , falco and alba has yello formation with alba having chem 9 and rest 2 7 .

  49. Why would you not choose Essien over Xabi Alonso? He’s faster, is a better dribbler, defender, and header, and also has a high DWR. The only thing Xabi has on him is passing (88 vs. 82).
    and regardless…Essien is one of the most under-valued players in the game.

    • Hi.
      It’s true that Essien is a very good player for that position but we still think that Xabi is a bit better. He has several attributes better than Essien. And some of them very important for his position: vision, marking, positioning and balance. Some of them are not so important: ball control curve, long shots, long pass, short pass, free kick, tactaware, penalties. Essien has high defensive/attacking work rate which sme times can be a bit dangerous since he get out of position often.

      • Nice…I think I’m going to give Xabi a try. Here is the root of my dilemma:

        I am basically looking for a CDM to base my team around. I really like the, which is what I’ve used forever. Until now, I have used Essien as the center CM because of his relative versatility on defense and in passing (dont really shoot much with him). However, I have raised the funds to upgrade, and have purchased Toure to replace him. My team is a hybrid BPL/BBVA, so a player from either league would fit nicely. Who would you recommend in that position?

        • Hi.
          First of all: we don’t say that Xabi is better than Essien for your team. It depends of your play style. We only explained why we chose him for our BBVA squad. Both play well in that position.
          For us, Touré is by far the best player in that position.

  50. 70k budget bbva team plz
    on ps3
    i don’t know what improve of the 25k budget team you had

    i prefer 4-4-2 .. is cheaper and i like to play a lot with my LM and RM

  51. I am planning to spend 40K-50K on making a Liga BBVA team. I already have several players in 4-2-3-1 formation from my other teams: Ozil (CAM), Kaka (CAM), Khedira (CDM), Jesus Gamez (RB) and Insua (LB). Can you suggest the players that I should get, including the bench players?

  52. i play 41212 midfield is where i am struggling can u advice

    ST Callerjon ST: Higuain
    LM : Simao CAM: Kaka RM : Navas
    CDM: Busquests
    LB: Coentrao CB: Miranda CB Albiol RB: Abidal
    Gk: Alvez

    I dont have much of a budget as i have just spent on this so any cheap players available that i could possible make this better?

    • Hi. Nice Team for your budget.
      Your midfield? Let’s see.
      If you are not happy with Busquests, you can get Song or Essien. Both are much cheper than Busquests.
      If you are not happy with Kaka, you can get Turan UP for less money.
      If you are not happy with Simão, you can get Guardado or Eliseu Up for less money.
      If you are not happy with Navas… impossible! 🙂

  53. Haha Navas was my first pick in the squad.. Kaka is to slow for my fast tempo attacking style. but i need that holding CDM as i get hit on the counter a lot and agree with you in many occasions with Miranda pure class for the price tag..

  54. hello their, currently i have a 4-5-1 bbva side of:
    GK – Valdez
    CB – Piquet, Pepe
    LB/RB- Juanfran, Coentrao
    CDM – Alonso
    RM – Navas
    LM – Pedro
    CAM- Fabregas, Ozil
    ST – Falcao
    i would like to get iniesta, xavi but i have not yet got the sufficient amount of coins to afford them. Would you recommend any changes to my line up. All advice will be taken on board 🙂

    • Hi.
      Please, try to not use caps. We edit your comment.
      We don’t know what are your play style and preferences. It isn’t easy to help you without that.
      In our opinion, Joao Pereira is bettre than Juanfran and Diego Alves better than Valdez. But it is only a opinion.
      If you are having problems with Falcão, you can try Benzema.
      Good squad by the way.

  55. Hi again 🙂 I decided to sell my precious BPL squad and try out a good BBV team since I finally have 250k+ (once aguero and them sell)

    I seemed to enjoy playing with the 4-4-2 formation you gave me the idea of trying and that seemed to be alright for the most part. Wanted to know, if I make the transition to a BBV team, is 4-4-2 a better formation or 4-1-2-1-2
    I sort of have an idea of who to use but just wanted to check with you guys since you have given me wonderful advice in the past!
    GK: Diego Alves?
    LB: Jordi Alba
    CB: (L/R) Pique/Pepe
    RB: Joao Pereira
    LM: Iniesta – might buy him from BFP (If not who would you recommend?)
    CM: (L/R) Xavi (If I have enough) / Xabi Alonso
    RM: Angel Di Maria
    ST: (L/R) Falcao/Benzema

    My budget is about 250k-275k Thanks!

    • If you are going well with 4-4-2, keep with it. 4-1-2-1-2 also fits very well with a BBVA squad but we recommend to keep with the formation that are working for you.
      About your team, it seems almost perfect. Yes, Diego Alves is the second better GK on BBVA (Casillas is first but too expensive for your budget). If you don’t get enough money to Xavi, try Ozil.
      For the bench, you can try to get Miranda, Navas, Modric, Guardado and Higuain.

      • I actually ended up buying Casillas 🙂 BUT I HAVE NO XAVI! I instead got Michael Essien because he was 1k so I am not waiting till I have enough to get Xavi – unless I use buyfifaplayers. Started off rocky with no goals but then I bought a squad fitness & moral and things seem alright for now. For the bench is it best to have 1 player for each area? For instance Navas to replace Iniesta or Dimaria?

        • Hi.
          We recommend to have on the bench/reserves, 1 gk, 1rb, 1lb, 2cb, 2cm, 1rm, 1lm, 2 st and +1 of your preference.
          By the way: did you bought by buyfifaplayers ? everything went well ? If you buy again, do it by the banner of our website. We will be helping us to pay servers.

          • I see, yes everything went smoothly with their transaction. I bought Walcott for $5 to test it out and then bought rooney for $25 ( to get 85k )

            Now here’s the big question. Is it better to buy Xavi (~60k)??? OR would it be better to get about 90k (buying rooney from the banner) and just buying EVERYONE FOR THE BENCH? What do you think, would it be worth it to get Xavi and navas ( for about 90K ) – or instead of Xavi, also get everything else on my bench and just use Ozil, Fabregas, Modric in his place?

            Now for the bench, here is who I have so far.
            GK: ?
            CB: Miranda, ?
            RB: ?
            LB: ?
            CM: Michael Essien – ( In the actual line-up I have Modric/Alonso )
            LM: ?
            RM: ?
            ST: ?

          • Thanks for your feeback.
            We think that is more important to have a good bench since rotation is one of the keys of FUT 13.
            We suggest, Carlos Idriss Kameni as GK, Juanfran as RB, Fábio Coentrão as LB, Navas as RM, Guardado as LM (or Eliseu UP) and Higuain as ST.

        • Sorry a double reply! I managed toget about 90k. I bought Xavi to put into my suad!! On my bench I have: lb: fabio coatrao cb: (2) varane/miranda rb: juan fran lm: guarado cm: (2) modric/essien rm: navas st: (1) higuain

          should i get one more back up st? woulf jose calejon or soldado be a good backup with higuin? I have 17k left, also should i save up to replce ozil with essien for my bench? Is a back up keeper worth it? if so, im guessing diego alves is the beat back up gor casillas?

          MAIN SQUAD: gk: casillas
          lb: jordi alba
          cb: pique/pepe
          rb: joao pereria
          lm: iniesta
          cm: xavi/xabi alonso
          rm: dimaria
          st: falcao/benzema

          • Hi.
            Of course you need a GK back up. You should not apply fitness cards anymore to anyone. Diego Alves is a real good choice.
            You don’t need a extra st back up. But we recommend to buy one. Soldado or Calejon are good Higuain back up’s. Yes, save up to replace Ozil.

          • Thanks again! I have everyone that I need except Ozil/ Diego Alvez ( back up keeper )

            Starting to get used to using “different” people than the same people every game – sort of a rocky start but I am getting used to it. Quick question, why Guarado and not David Villa?

  56. Hi, I am the guy from Peru:
    I managed to solve my problem of not been able to play online so now i am in division 1 and my team is the following:
    ——————–Diego Alves———————–
    Joao Pereira—–Pepe————-Mascherano—–Jordi Alba
    ——Di Maria——–Ozil——————-Villa——-
    DT: Vicente del Bosque
    I was wondering how can i improve my team i currently have 40,000 in the bank
    Regards from Peru

    • Hi again, Carlo.
      You have a very nice BBVA team.
      You missed your CDM. In our opinion, your strikers are the weakest players. Our suggestion is to spend all your money in Benzema. You will get without nothing, but your attack will be just great. If you play a lot with crosses to the area, Falcão is an option too.

  57. Hey Guys.

    Making a 41212 BBVA team, and I know pretty much who I’m gonna buy

    CB:Pepa, Sergio Ramos
    LM:Iniesta/David Villa
    RM:DI maria
    CDM:Xabi Alonso
    ST:Falcao, Benzema

    But who would you recommend for my RB? Dani Alves is way expensive and I don’t think I need a RB with such OP stats?? Any RB with pace and good defending is perfect because the RB/LB stay in defense in 41212, thanks

  58. Hi.
    After reading this article, I am planning a ‘Dream Team’ for the 4-4-2 formation. Although all players are not 4-4-2, I can put formation cards. I am not sure if my Dream Team is the best so can you please tell me which players I should change from the Dream Team?

    Dream Team:
    GK: Casillas
    LB: Marcelo
    RB: Dani Alves
    CB: Sergio Ramos and Puyol
    CMs: Xavi/Fabregas/Ozil/Alonso (any 2)
    LM: Ronaldo/Iniesta/Villa (any 1)
    RM: Di Maria/Sanchez/Navas (any 1)
    STs: Messi/Falcao/Benzema (any 2)

    Can you please tell me if I should make any changes and also tell me which ones I should choose from the options.

    • Hi again.
      In our opinion, Pepe is much better than Puyol, as we already said. But it’s up to you. At least, give him a try.
      CM’s: we prefer Xavi + Ozil
      LM’s: we prefer Ronaldo
      RM’s: we prefer Di Maria but Navas is also very very good
      ST’s: we prefer Messi and Benzema
      Do you have enough coins to buy for all this players?!

      • No I don’t have enough coins :p But i will be looking at the cheaper players first, earn money, then establish the best players. I just neede help in figuring out the best players. Thanks.

          • Who would you recommend for cheap players to start with? Players with an average rating of 82+ should do fine, right? Who would you recommend? I already have some 82+ players. They are: Diego Forlan, Fernando Llorente, Riccardo Montolivo, Sergio Busquets, Alexandre Song, Medhi Benatia, Danny, Matias Fernandez, Stephane Sessegnon. I already have these 82+ players. Who should I get for LM, LB, CB, RB and GK who is 82+? Never mind the formation.

            So summing it all up into 3 questions: Are 82+ players good enough for a starter team? If yes, who do you recommend for LM, LB, CB, RB and GK? If no, what and who do you recommend?

            Sorry but I forgot to mention my budget. On 82-84 players, I am not willing to spend more than 10k. I know I won’t be able to find many players under 10k but it is possible (I but Busquets and Song for 750 each). It just depends on good marketing strategy. Anyways, so a lower class 82+ team for less than 10k and plus the details given above

          • The rating isn’t the most important. We already said that. Eliseu UP, for example, is below the 82 rating but play more than most of them.
            If you want a cheap good team, why not making the we show you on this article (25k budget)? You will be able to buy it much cheaper now.

        • I already have good strikers and midfielders for the starter team so I will be looking at defense. From defense, I already have a good CB (Benatia) and a good RB (Arbeloa). For the other CB and LB I can look for someone better than the 25k team. I am lookig for Coentrao for LB but I do not know the price for Coentrao. For Cb I will stick to your team and go for Rami. Thanks. I will get back when I buy those 2 players.

        • I also had one more question:

          Some players have a box on their rating. As in you can find Coentrao normal and Coentrao with a box over 81. What does the box mean?

          • Red box means out of contract or injured.
            If the box has other colour it means that they applied at least one training card on that player. You can find on that card which attributes were improved.

          • Thanks for the info! About the prices, I just earned 7k in 8 matches so I can finally buy at least 2 good players. I still want to buy Puyol/Pique because I think the attributes I want are better in them. Is Puyol for 9000 a good deal? If no then how much would be fine? Can you also tell me Marcelo’s price

          • Although I am building a BBVA team, I bought Sneijder. Yes, he is not from BBVA but I bought him for 4.3k which I think is a good deal, is it?
            I use a PS3

          • 2 more questions (sorry for asking so many):

            1) Is there a formation changing card for LM to CM or RB to CB (basically right or left to centre or vive-versa)?

            2) For 4-4-2, how many of each type do you recommend in the subs? (how many STs, CBs, GKs, etc)?

            Please answer in the reply

          • 1) No. Only RB-RWB; LB-LWB; RM-RW-RF; LM-LW-LF; CDM-CM-CF-CAM-ST.
            2) It depends of how you play and which players you have. In our opinion, in subs/reserves we should have one players for each position. To the 23th player you can improve the position that you think is weaker.

          • For subs I am planning 1 GK, 1 CB, 1 CM, 1 ST, 1 LM, 1 RM, and 1 LB/RB. I read most of your articles today and thought that I can change some players from BBVA and put some BPL players such as Cole, Vidic, David Silva, and Rooney. Wouldn’t that be the ULTIMATE team? Yes it will affect chemistry but it will still be 100 (i think). Is that right?

          • Yes. Hybrid squads are very difficult to build but they are the best that someone can have. You can have hybrid squads with 100/11×9 chemistry.
            When you asked subs we thought that you mean subs/reserves. Your subs look good.

          • I bought Coentrao for 4k. Good deal I think because his value is 4.5k so I just saved 500 coins. I played some more matches and I have 2870 coins with me now. A lot of my players have lost their contracts or have been injured. I do not want to spend a lot on contracts and fitness cards so I bought a Bronze pack. I used the players from that pack and also the contracts from that pack. Is this a good idea?

          • Hi.
            Try to save coins for a while. Don’t waste them on more players for a time. You need to buy rare gold managers. They will help you to get contracts much cheaper. Learn more HERE.
            AS soon as possible, try to buy some players to back up the first eleven. Rotation is one of the keys of FUT 13.

          • Hi again.
            I was buying defenders and a keeper for my starter team. Here are the players (and the prices I bought them for) for the defenders and keeper:

            LB: Coentrao (4000)
            CB: Rami (1200)
            CB: Mascherano (6100)
            RB: Arbeloa (900)
            GK: Diego Lopez (2300)

            There is the starter defenders and keeper. Do you think they were all good deals?

          • Hi again. There are somethings I would like to discuss about my starter team.

            League: From my starting 11, 7 are from Liga BBVA, 1 from Liga do Brazil, 1 from Russian League, 1 from Turklig and 1 from Serie A.

            Nationality: I have 5 from Spain, 1 from Portugal, 1 from France, 1 from Argentina, 1 from Uruguay, 1 from Russia and 1 from Netherlands.

            Links: In my 4-1-2-1-2 formation, there are 10 absent links, 8 weak links and 1 strong link.

            Because of this, I am having a very low team chemistry (59) but a high Team rating (83). Here is my starting 11:

            GK: Lopez
            LB: Coentrao
            CBs: Rami, Mascherano
            RB: Arbeloa
            CDM: Busquets

            This is my defense. I think it is strong. My defending has all weak bonds except one strong bond.

            Midfield and Attack:

            LM: Zhirkov
            RM: Borja Valero
            CAM: Sneijder
            STs: Forlan, Llorente

            Borja Valero is actually a CM but playing him as RM connects together my striker, CDM and RB who are all Spanish and results in better chemistry)

            ATT: 82
            MID: 83
            DEF: 82

            I don’t know whether this is good enough for a starter team. Is it?

            To increase the chemistry, what should I do?

          • DeeJay-00 you are not going in the right direction. Sorry but your chemistry is not bad. It’s awful!
            We know that you have some knowledges about FUT and that’s why we don’t understand why you are building a team with very low chemistry.
            For a starter team you don’t need so high team rating. You need, at least, chemistry 90. Read our guide about chemistry. We explain everything there about how to improve the chemist on your team.

          • I just bought soldado and kaka. When I am playing kaka as CAM, team chemistry is 63. But when I play him as LM (which is not his natural position), team chemistry becomes 68. Why?

          • Hi.
            Now my main CAM is Kaka. My sub is Sneijder. I have 3 other CAMs: Danny, Sesegnon, Fernandez. Out of these 3, I want to keep only 1. Which one should I keep?

  59. Right now my lineup is this (
    Fabregas, Silva, Gerrard
    Alonso, Toure
    Marcelo, Pepe, Silva, Maicon

    I am looking to find faster players on the outside CAM positions, but players who are also still decent passers/dribblers/shooters. Who would you guys recommend from the BPL and BBVA? 1 player from each league would fit nicely as well as 2 from BPL.

  60. Other than Messi, who would you recommend at CF in 4-2-3-1? I have Higuain, Soldado, Vela combo at ST, but I am planning to upgrade ST to Benzema and Falcao in the next couple of weeks. I cannot afford Messi, who seems like a natural fit for the CF down the road, but who are the next best options? Reus and Van der Vaart did really well at the CF position on my other teams, but I want to use someone from Liga BBVA.

      • Thanks for your response. I think that your reasoning for using Xavi at CF is sound. I will give it a try once I have enough money to buy him. I will also try Ozil at CF. I played him at the CAM, but he is not great defensively so putting him at CF makes perfect sense. I won’t even have to change his CAM card because I get 9 chemistry with him at CF.

  61. Hi I have a liga bbva/bpl hybrid team ad I was wondering what you think of it?
    St- Christiano Ronaldo
    St aguero
    Cm ozil
    Cm podolski. Cb pepe
    cb Ramos
    Rb dani Alves
    lb Jordi alba(I tried Marcelo)
    Rm di marie
    Lm IF gaurdado. Don’t worry about a budget

    • It seems wonderful.
      Assuming that you have Casillas as GK, and money is not a problem, we just want to say 2 things:
      – With Ronaldo as ST, do you still have individual chemistry 9? If not, he will not play everything he knows;
      – we think that Podolski is the weakest player of your team. Why not adapt Messi to that position? It is a good option if you defend well, since Messi and Ozil will not help the back four.

  62. Sorry yes I do have Casillas, and I think he has 6 chem but cannot say for sure. An one more: is IF messi worth it?
    And I don’t really defend very well

    • Casillas is che 9 for sure. We think that you are talking about Ronaldo. If he only has individual chemistry 6, you should pay attention to him. He will not play as well as he knows.
      About Messi, he will fits very well on your team. But in our opinion, IF’s are a waste of money. Not a good value for money.

  63. read you article wonder what you think of my team
    toty casillas
    dani alves
    sergio ramos
    IF pepe
    toty marcelo
    toty xabi alonso
    IF pedro
    toty iniesta
    IF messi
    falcao UP

  64. What about Ronaldo I have 1.4 mill and I want to make a good la liga team and I want to have Ronaldo in there….. And what players should I get for my la liga team formation 4-3-3?

    • Nobody knows. We believe that Ronaldo will be always more expensive than Messi. It happened in other FUT’s. In June, Ronaldo will probably costs more than 1M.
      About your team, use the unlimited budget team of this article with Ronaldo as LF, Di Maria as RF and Messi as CM.

  65. Hi, I have a 580k budget, please can you suggest a team for me, I do not mind which formation. I would like string pacey defense, good pacey, passers and shooters in midfield and just a clinical finisher who can produce a bit of magic up front. P.S do you think la liga is best choice?


  66. Hi there!
    I’m starting a BBVA team with the 4-3-3 formation.
    Could you please tell me what players should I get, trying not to be with a impossible budget (like Ronaldo, messi, casillas). I like it fast, in particullar on transitions.
    Really nice article btw. Keep it up.

  67. How much chemistry would this be?

    Llorente —— Soldado
    Pedro ———-Navas

  68. How much would Pedro and Navas together cost?

    Also, although all players are from the same league, they all are not from the same nation so this is causing only weak links. Can you suggest a starter team with better chemistry from what is shown below? Also, how much would this team cost?

    Llorente ——————— Soldado
    ————Lopez (Madrid)———–

    • 10.5k to PS3 and 6.5k to XBox 360.
      You don’t need another team. If they all play in the same league you already have chemistry 100 (with right formations and positions). Just check if everybody have individual chemistry 9 (or at least 7).
      Something luke 38k on PS3.

      • Of the above team, I bought all players except Pedro and Navas for 23600. What would be the best price for Pedro and Navas?

    • Also, does applying fitness cards make it permanent or only for one match? If it is only for one match then how can we keep a permanent increase in fitness?

    • I ended up buying Guardado and Joaquain. These are bringing the chemistry to around 75. The problem is that NONE of my players are adapted to 4-1-2-1-2 so how much will it cost to buy 11 4-1-2-1-2 formation changing cards?

        • Sorry my chemistry is 83. My strikers have chemistry 9 so do LM and RM. My CDM and LB have a chemistry of 8. My RB has 7. This should be OK, right? The problem is my CAM, he (Kaka) has only weak bonds causing a chemistry of 6. My CBs and GK also have a chemistry of 6. My CAM, CBs and GK formation is red so won’t formation cards make it 9? Also have much would 4 of 4-1-2-1-2 formation cards cost?

          Instead of buying 4 formation cards, there is one more alternative:

          I will buy the formation card only for Kaka. I will replace Rami with Pique and Diego Lopez with Valdez. This will cause strong connection between CDM, CBs and GK and is bound to form a chemistry of 9 for each.

          So please answer these questions:

          1) Is the chemistry for my strikers, LM, RM, CDM, RB and LB fine?
          2) Which is a better alternative? Buying formation cards or buying Pique and Valdes?

          If formation cards are a better alternative:
          1) Will formation cards make the CAM, CBs and GK to have a chemistry 9?
          2) How much would 4 formation cards cost?

          If Valdes and Pique are a better alternative:
          1) What would be their price on PS3?

          Also, is there another alternative?

          • Hi.

            1) Sure. You can’t have more than individual chemistry 9 (in fact you can have up to 11 but it is the same that having 9);
            2) Probably your team will be better with Piqué/Valdes.

            1) Probably yes. But, once again, read our Chemistry Guide please. You will find all the answers there.
            2) Something like 5k each one.

            1) 15k and 17k

            We are getting problems building your squad because you didn’t read our Chemistry Guide. Or at least, you didn’t understand.
            There you will find some solutions for your problems. For example: maybe you can apply a formation card 4-2-2-2 to your CB’s, any 4-x-x to your GK and 4-4-1-1 to your CAM. These cards are much more cheaper (+- 1k) and can be enough to get individual chemistry 9.


          • I read the chemistry guide and got a fair idea but the tables are confusing.

            I will buy the formation cards as they are cheaper.

            I will tell you when I get all the cards.

  69. I’ve got about 600,000-700,000 coins to buy 11 players for liga bbva 4-1-2-1-2 formation on Xbox, who would you recommend as I keep buying and selling and getting nowhere on a new team.


    • It depends of your play style and preferences.

      Our suggestion:
      GK: Iker Casillas
      CB: Sergio Ramos
      CB: Pepe
      RB: João Pereira (or Dani Alves if you have enough coins)
      LB: Marcelo
      CDM: Xabi Alonso
      CAM: Xavi
      RM: Di Maria
      LM: Iniesta
      ST: Ramadel Falcão
      ST: Karim Benzema

  70. Is there anyone you would recommend as a ST instead of falcao as I find him useless. I got modric CAM and benzima as one ST

  71. OK. So now I have successfully built a Liga BBVA squad.

    Here is the squad in the form of Position : Name : Chemistry:

    GK: Lopez (Madrid): 8
    LB: Coentrao: 8
    CB: Rami: 8
    CB: Mascherano: 8
    RB: Arbeloa: 7
    CDM: Busquets: 8
    LM: Guardado (UP 82): 9
    RM: Joaquin: 9
    CAM: Kaka: 8
    ST: Soldado: 9
    ST: Llorente: 9

    My total chemistry is now 91. Thank you so much! You got me from a bad team to a great team with a good chemistry. I cannot buy many things now as I am broke (only 66 coins) after buying the cards.

    But how can I improve in any way with an improvement budget of 15-20k?

    • Cool!
      Now you should save coins for rare managers and other useful things.
      As soon as you play with this team, you will understand what are the weaknesses.
      For example: if you are conceding many goals, try to save to Pepe; if the problem is in the attack, Higuain can help you with that.

  72. I got all these 11 players plus the 4 formation cards for a total of around 29-30 thousand. Do you think these 11 players and 4 formation cards are worth that much money or have I simply wasted my money?

  73. Also, I need substitutes and reserves as well. These also should be from Liga BBVA.

    Out of the 7 substitutes and 5 reserves, I would like:

    2 GK
    2 CB
    1 LB
    1 RB
    1 CAM
    1 CDM
    1 LM
    1 RM
    2 ST

    Who would you recommend for the following positions from Liga BBVA with a budget of 15000?

    I already have a CDM (Song) so who would you recommend for the other positions?

  74. I am focusing on 7 of he players I will buy for the subs and reserves. These 7 are:


    Do you suggest any changes? What will be the prices of each of these players and any changes which you suggest, if any?

  75. I took some cheaper options:


    I am yet to buy Susaeta and Reyes but in the auction house they come for more than 1000. What would be the best price I will find them for?

    Also, I did not buy a Spanish manager. I bought a Gold manager with the same formation which increases the chemistry buy 10 and was enough to reach 100.

  76. I bought Reyes (700) and instead of Susaeta I bought Feghouli for 900. Now I need a spare CAM. Now I have from Liga BBVA (my squad and sub/reserve):

    GK: Diego Lopez and Guaita
    LB: Coentrao and Monreal
    CB: Rami, Mascherano and Albiol
    RB: Arbeloa and Iraola
    CDM: Busquets and Song
    LM: Guardado and Reyes
    RM: Joaquin (UP) and Feghouli
    CAM: Kaka (need someone else)
    ST: Soldado, Llorente and Negredo

    Who should be the other CAM?

  77. I bought Turan (the non UP 80) for 800. It is a good deal. So now I have a great team and back up for each position.

    2 questions:

    1) I now need a lot of contracts. What do you think is the most efficient way of getting contracts and which contract is value for money?

    2) Now I have 18 gold players who are not from Liga BBVA and LOTS of bronze players from packs (42 of them). The packs also gave me 28 kits, 14 badges and 3 stadiums. What should I do with them? I also got 10 staff members. Should I use them?

    Sorry this is bpl bbva but can we have your opinion on it

  79. What do you feel is the formation that fits the best Liga BBVA talent? I am comfortable with most formations and I have used 4-2-3-1 formation with Liga BBVA successfully, but I find that I cannot take advantage of excellent wide midfielders (Di Maria, Navas, etc) without losing chemistry. I don’t mind rebuilding the team in another formation if that can allow me to take better advantage of the available talent. Thanks!

  80. Thanks for a quick response. I was actually considering 4-1-2-1-2 even though it is more expensive. I should have around 300K coins after I sell my team so Messi and Ronaldo are out of reach, but I should be able to afford good players. I definitely want to have Pepe, Benzema, Xabi Alonso and Ozil (at least as a sub) as I had great experience with them. Do you have any suggestions for the squad on 300K budget?

    I will add that in terms of my playing style, I like gradual build up with short/medium passing and controlling possession, but I also don’t mind varying my approach depending upon what the opponent is doing. I don’t mind using speed and dribbling (particularly on a counter following a turnover), or crossing the ball, or taking an occasional long distance shot.

  81. Hi I have 3 teams and my liga bbva is my highest rated and I want to know if it was actually worth all the coins. Here it is.
    ———Diego Alves——–
    —-Xabi Alonso–Fabregas–
    David Villa————–Jesus Navas
    Plz respond thx

    • Hi.
      It depends of your play style, budget and preferences.
      In our opinion, you can improve it. Pepe is much better than any of the three CB’s you have. You should think replacing Puyol by him.
      Also, Modric can be replaced by Ozil but it depends of your preferences. Ozil os more atacker and Modric defends better.

  82. Hey ,
    For my Liga BBVA squad if i buy neur/ lloris / buffon , what would be the individual chemistry ? And how much will it affect the game play . Presently i have diego alves and kameni , as casillas is not less than 200k so just thinking buying a cheaper classy GK .

  83. I have a Bpl/ La liga hybrid
    I play 4-3-3 with casillas alba ramos vidic konko(rb)
    Ozil silva alonso
    Bale dimaria benzema
    Obviously i firstly need a good rb which i cant figure out, i have nearly 160k and might buy maicon or alves. What do you suggest on that?
    Also if u look at my squad i dont have a clinical finisher as such, benzema is the only player in
    my squad with shooting above 80 and although he is great even his shooting is 83
    I like long shots and score
    a lot of goals with even di maria and ozil from nearly 35-40 yards who have a shooting of 79 and 75 so i feel with a good finisher i can I get many more goals. Aguero is quick but again with 84 shooting, the best options are rvp and rooney but they are slow. What do you think?
    And do you think xavi will be better than alonso? Obviously he is but my midfield lacks that defensive strength if i take alonso out, but ofcourse xavi is the best but im confused (i even like to keep the ball to myself and alonso is slow with average dribbing so i tend to lose possession) so should i buy xavi or not?

    • The answers to your questions are not easy.
      The first thing that we want to know is if you are OK with Vidic. He is a awesome defender but he is slow. If you are not getting troubles with him, keep him. Otherwise you can try Pepe. He’s very good and much more cheaper. Another thing that concern us is Vidic individual chemistry. He probably don’t get more than 6 and that is too bad.
      Maicon is not a good option since his individual chemistry will be too low. You must pay attention to that: individual chemistry is more important than team chemistry. Learn more about it HERE.
      You can spend lots of coins in Dani Alves and you will get a very good RB. But you can try João Pereira too. He is very good and much more cheaper. He is our suggestion for that position.
      Yes, Xavi could be a good signing. He has medium defensive Work Rate.
      About the ST we think that Aguero is the right man. He is fast and his shoot is good too. And he has another good thing. He will improve the Bale chemistry. Without a BPL striker, Bale will get low individual chemistry. If you want to keep Benzema, David Villa can be a good addition, since his long shoot is one of the bests.

  84. According to the post marcelo is preferred over jordi alba in LB , I want to know the reason behind marcelo being superior to alba !

    • Hi.
      Marcelo is better in our opinion. But yours can be different. It depends of your play style, formation and preferences.
      Alba is much faster but it is the only thing that the Spanish is better than Marcelo. The Brazilian is better on the other 5 main attributes.
      There are some attributes that Marcelo is much much better, like Shot Power, Strength, Agility and Long Pass. Most of the gamers that play with both choose Marcelo.

  85. Hi again!

    I need help in choosing my reserves. Until now here are my Starters and Subs:

    Mains: Llorente and Soldado
    Sub: Negredo

    Main: Kaka
    Sub: Turan

    Main: Guardado
    Sub: Reyes

    Main: Joaquin
    Sub: Feghouli

    Main: Busquets
    Sub: Song

    Main: Coentrao
    Sub: Monreal

    Main: Arbeloa
    Sub: Iraola

    Mains: Mascherano and Rami
    Sub: Albiol

    Main: Lopez
    Sub: Guaita

    I need reserve players for each position so please reply with the player names and prices and the total cost.

  86. Here is what I bought:

    GK: Roberto
    CB: Diaz
    LB: Luis
    RB: Juanfran
    LM: Pedro
    RM: I don’t know as Susaeta doesn’t seem worth the money.
    ST: Higuain

    CAM and CDM I don’t know so can you recommend a CAM or CDM for me?

  87. Hai. I must say, these are great articles you’re producing.. yet I find myself seeking more guidance. (If you’d be so kind as to oblige)
    My current squad is comprised, entirely, of Spanish players.. yes, I’ve gone by Nationality. However, only a few are from other leagues due to my poverty. I need improvements, but where and who? I’ve only played FUT for just under a week, however I know I’ll start laying bricks when Online Seasons becomes a challenge and I want to be prepared. Here’s my squad..

    Thanks in advance.

    • Hi. Thanks!
      For your first squad, you are going well.
      The attack is very good but we think that you should improve your defence. It is hard to help you without knowing your play style, preferences and budget.
      Probably you don’t have much coins, but you should try Miranda as CB. He is a really good value for money. He is fast and defends very well. You could also try Héctor Moreno. He’s not so good but he is better than the two that you have right now.
      Good games!

  88. Can you suggest a 6000 improvement for this squad?

    (Players in the form of “Main – Sub – Reserve”)

    GK: Lopez – Guaita – Roberto
    RB: Arbeloa – Juanfran – Iraola
    CB: Mascherano, Rami – Diaz – Albiol
    LB: Coentrao – Monreal – Luis
    CDM: Busquets – Song – Fuego
    RM: Joaquin – Feghouli – Pedro Leon
    LM: Pedro – Guardado – Reyes
    CAM: Kaka – Turan – Verdu
    ST: Higuain, Soldado – Llorente – Negredo

    Can you rate my squad and tell me what you think is the weakest along with some improvements of a 6000 budget (only spanish players from BBVA)?

      • It is only one squad, it is just that I have kept a sub and reserve for each position as I am prone to injuries and red cards. So taking it as one large squad, what improvements do you reckon I should make?

        Just to let you know my Joaquain is UP and I have a normal and a UP Turan. For improvement here is what I planned:

        GK: Valdes
        CB: Pique
        LB and RB: No improvement as the only improvement is Dani and Marcelo who are too expensive.
        CDM: Is there anyone better than Busquets?
        CAM: Please recommend someone better than Turan UP
        RM: Navas
        LM: Villa
        ST: Benzema

        Please tell me if I should make some changes and recommend a better CDM and CAM.

        • Hi.
          Having a sub and a reserve for each player is like having 2 squads. 🙂 We think that you will not need that. But it’s up to you.
          About your improvements:
          Valdez is a huge signing. RB, you have João Pereira. LB, you have Alba. CB we think that Pepe is much better than Pique. CDM you can try Xabi. CAM, you have Ozil (more attacking) or Modric (more defending). RM, LM and ST are perfect. Benzema is a really good player.

          • What do you think should be my priority in buying the players? Who should I save up for first?

          • Can you please tell me the price that each of the improvements come for? Also, the price which I can find in the market (like players worth 2000 can be found for 1700)?

            How much will I have to save up in total to buy all the imrpovements?

          • I was gone for a long time but I am back now. I have bought Navas and Ozil.

            Soldado – Higuain
            Pedro (LW CARD) – Navas
            Coentrao – Rami – Mascherano – Arbeloa

            I do not want to improve my defense yet, I want to do that last. I am now thinking of buying Falcao. I am not sure whether I should buy Villa or not. What do you suggest.

            Also, after buying Falcao, I will improve defense, in which I cannot choose between Pepe and Pique and the goalkeeper.

            Please help

  89. can you suggest me a liga bbva squad
    my budget is 100k and in 451 formation i like a good striker and playmakers
    i hope you can help

    • Hi.
      You can try something like: Diego Alves, João Pereira, Pepe, Miranda, Filipe Luiz, Xabi Alonso, Navas, Eliseu UP, Ozil, Modric and Higuain )falcão if you have enough coins – we don’t know if you play on PS3 or XBox360).

    • Hi Thomas.
      We don’t have much to say since your team… is perfect! We love it. Really…
      The only thing that we could change is Ashley Cole on Clichy place but probably you prefer the pace of the French player.
      With that coins you can improve the bench in order to rotate de players, one of the secrets to FUT success. We suggest Diego Alves, Pepe, Cole, Navas, Bale and Tévez.

  90. Hello there.
    I been using 433, Liga BBVA team:

    GK TotY Casillas
    LB TotY Marcelo
    LCB IF Pepe
    RCB Ramos
    RB Alves
    LCM Xabi Alonso
    CM Xavi
    RCM Fabregas
    LW Iniesta
    ST Messi
    RW IF Di Maria

    to be totally honest the attacking fluency is great but it’s disgusting to defend with. Offense is direct and simple from wings midfield. But I lose concentration when I defend using the 4-3-3 ..I know how to defend but it’s not working.
    My bench and reserves are:
    LB IF (83) Alba
    CB Pique
    RB IF Adriano
    CM Ozil
    LW IF David Villa
    RW IF Pedro
    ST Falcao

    CB Miranda
    CM IF Benat
    CM IF Busquets
    ST Benzema

    ..thinking of switching to 4-1-2-1-2 ..

    • Hi.
      You have an amazing team.
      We agree with you. Probably your problem is your formation. 4-3-3 is a very offensive formation. You have awesome players on your defence and with the right formation they will play much better.
      Changing to 4-1-2-1-2 seems to us a really good move. Go ahead!

      • 4-1-2-1-2 has already been working wonders without the squad being full chemistry to the formation..
        I have literally just finished switching my main squad into a 41212 with 9 chemistry, I subsequently have cut my losses with the team of the year Casillas (I recommend people not buying him until his price tag is lower).
        Squad right now is:

        GK Valdes
        LB IF Alba
        LCB Ramos
        RCB Pepe
        RB Alves
        CDM Xabi Alonso
        LM TotY Marcelo (at 7 chemistry o.O)
        RM IF Di Maria
        CAM Ozil
        LS ..Ronaldo (at 5 Chemistry)
        RS Messi
        😀 :’)

        • Hi.
          Wonderful team.
          Just two notes:
          1) Ronaldo will not play everything he knows but if you are winning why to change him?
          2) Ozil is a great player but, if he don’t play as you wish, you can try other solutions like Benzema, Aguero(?), etc…

  91. Hi, I need help with my BBVA team. I currently have formation as 4-4-1-1.
    Benzema (ST) Kaka (CF) Tello (RM) Di Maria (LM) Modric (CM) Ozil (CM) Alba (LB) Pereira (RB) Pepe (CB) Pique (CB) Valdes (GK). I want to know if this squad is good or can do with some changes or change of formation.

  92. Hello. I recently sold my bpl team as it wasn’t performing, and huge thanks for the advice you gave me about David silva, Kompany etc..

    All together I had around 150k and bought this bbva team.
    451- my style of play is attacking with lots of possession.

    Diego Alves
    Jordi alba – Pepe -Piqué – Pereria
    Cm – Xavi
    LM- Pedro
    RM – Sanchez
    CAM- Ozil, Modric
    ST- Falcao

    I have around 30 k once again, is there any improvements? And is this a decent team for the money spent?

    Many Thanks.

    • Hi.
      We think that you have a great team.
      Our concern is about Sánchez. He is realy good but did you try Navas and Di Maria? The Argentinian is superb!
      To ST position you have one more great player: Benzema. If you need someone with good heading, Falcão is your man. But if you prefer someone more balanced, the French is a better choice.

  93. Just sold my bpl team and have £630k to spend on bbva squad. Thinking of using 3-5-2. What team do you suggest? Happy to consider 4-1-2-1-2 but think player will cost too much. Thanks

    • We think that 4-1-2-1-2 will be not so expensive as you think. And it is a better formation for BBVA squad.
      You can try something like: Casillas, João Pereira, Pepe, Piqué, Marcelo, Xabi, Di Maria, Iniesta, Xavi (or Ozil), Benzema and Falcão.

  94. Hey guys!

    I´m currently planning my next squad. I´m very eager to try the 3-5-2 formation. I also find that in the Liga BBVA there are a lot very good and rather cheap players. So I fooled around with some constellations. Attackingwise I´ve found very nice combinations but at the back I can´t find the right players for the three CB positions. Of course there´s Ramos, Pique and Pepe but for now I´ll have to find a cheaper solution. And these cheaper solutions are mostly very slow!

    So I tried a hybrid squad. I found that in the BPL there are very strong and cheap defenders like Vermealen, Verthongen.
    But I wasn´t able to get good chemistry. That seems to be very difficult to achieve in this formation since there are soo many links in midfield…

    My prerequisites for the squad are:
    – It should cost too much. Average player cost something between 3k-6k
    – I´d like to take advantage of the Liga BBVA´s cheap but still very high rated players
    – I´d like to have a strong central CB and a slighly faster CBs on his side
    – Individual chemistry should be 8 or 9
    – Also I didn´t find anyone matching Guardado as LM outside the Liga BBVA

    Here´s where I´m at:

    Higuain – Soldado
    Guardado – Modric – Jesus Navas
    Song – Khedira
    ? – ? – ? (Mascherano maybe…?)

    These are just my spanish favorites. I´m aware that if this will become a hybrid squad, I will have to sacrifice some of them in order to achieve good chemistry.

    For more visually orientated people, here´s the link ;))

    I´m looking forward to hopefully a lot of suggestions here. Would be glad to receive your tips 🙂



  95. Hi , need a pacy CDM for my squad ! I prfer song , but recently saw the attributes of MEDEL (IF) will he be a gd player ? or any other suggestion ? Coins isnt a matter !

  96. There is a striker from arsenal named Lucas Podolski who I think is completely underrated and is worth his 7k price

  97. Hi,
    thanks for your advices.
    I recently changed my formation from 4-2-3-1 to 4-1-2-1-2 because I don’t know why I couldn’t defend at all with the 4-2-3-1. Now it is much better with 4-1-2-1 but I’ve lost a lot of coins rebuilding the squad especially with that formation. It is now : Diego Alves – João Pereira – Pepe – Ramos – Alba – Alonso – Di Maria – Higain CAM – Guardado – Benzema – O. Martins
    I am planning to buy now the updated Falcao.
    Then, who should I buy? Should I replace Guardado with somebody like IF Pedro? Should I replace Higuain with Ozil although their pace is pretty the same but one is better at shooting and one at dribbling.
    Then I can consider boosting my defense in summer because I need a lot of coins for Daniel Alves or Casillas.
    Thanks for help.

    • Hi.
      Yes, Daniel Alves and Casillas are expensive but they can hold a bit more. After buying Falcão, Guardado is your weakest player. Did you ever think buying Iniesta? We know that he is not much fast but pace is not everything. Regards

      • I bought Falcao (UP). I will start saving for Daniel Alves.
        However, what do you think of buying Jesus Navas at LM (Chemistry 5)? Will he be better than Guardado or Pedro IF1 ? Because I prefered Navas between all wingers excluding Di Maria, it is just the chemistry that is 5… (Will this really make him worse than Guardado or Pedro IF1??)

          • First thanks for your very fast reply. Yes.. I expected that but the fact is that Navas is so much better than any LM in la Liga excluding Ronaldo (price) and Iniesta (doesn’t match my style) that I thought even with the 5 chemistry it won’t hurt me a lot. Pedro IF1 is first MUCH more expensive, better at shooting, weaker at pace but as LM I prefer pace since the 2 ST and the CAM are more likely to score than middle wingers. I don’t really get what the chemistry thing means since it is abstract (and your chemistry guide is so long :p ) but he is spanish and has green links with Alonso and Alba plus my team’s chemistry will still be 100.
            I read the chemistry test on fifaaddiction (shorter than yours :p ), they didn’t find a big difference with my case plus I’ve read this, it will only make me lose one additional contrat : “You can change your formation and player positions after the game starts and chemistry isn’t affected” so replacing Guardado with Navas at the beginning ..
            What do you think? Thanks for your help.

          • Yes. It is one of our advice´s. You can make a substitution and the chemistry will not be affected.
            You gave us a good advice to us too. In your opinion, the chemistry guide is too long. We will probably do something about it in future. In fact, we think that is the best FUT article ever written but probably there are many players that think like you. We will try to make one a bit more simple and shorter.

  98. I would love your opinion on CDM in a 4-1-2-1-2, is xavi worth the money? alternatively who would you choose between fabregas, alonso and essien?

    • First, if you want a good CDM, I won’t recommend you buying Xavi or Fabregas since in that position, I won’t think of buying a player that is good in attack because I really need him as a very good defender and not attacking with my other 5 players. Alternatively, Xavi would be a good choice as a CAM like in the photo above.
      So, for CDM, I would not buy Essien : I had first Song which is very good at defending with his good pace and defensive skills and now, I switched to Alonso since he’s a more complete CDM (taller, better at defending, can play the role of a transition between defense and attack).
      That’s from my experience.

    • Sorry for my mistake but actually Song is taller :p (184 cm > 183 cm for Alonso). I f the only thing that you want is pace, there is Lassana Diarra but I really prefer Song (taller and almost better in all the other things) and as I told you the top CDM for me is Alonso.

  99. whenever i am cliking offline season , my fifa is getting forcce close , what can be the prblm , pls help !

  100. Any budget improvements you can suggest?


    Benzema (ST) Higuan (ST)
    Xavi (CAM)
    Iniesta (LM) Di Maria (RM)
    Xabi Alonso (CDM)
    Marcelo (LB) Pique (CB) Pepe (CB) Joao Pedro (RB)
    Casillas (GK)

    Subs -Torres, David Villa, Pedro, Navas, Mascherano, Puyol & Diego Lopez

  101. Hello! last week with a limited budget of around 30k, I bought this squad:

    ———–Diego Alves————–
    ——-A. Song——Busquets———

    Now, I have 30k and I intend to buy one of xabi, ozil, fabregas. Who do you think I should buy first and who will get replaced in my squad?

    Just some advice to you, I use Adrian as ST. You will keep wondering why when higuain is available less than 5k in the auction. The reason why I prefer adrian is bcs he’s very fast and very good at dribble. 85 pace 85 dribble. Adrian is the 1st choice for any gamer that loves counterattack style with limited budget. only 73 shooting? doesnt matter. just buy some shooting card. until the time I wrote this, Adrian has scored messi-like 57 goals in 45 appearance.

    • Hi.
      We agree with you. Some players are better for some gamers than others. It’s the case of Adrian. But we do not agree with buying training cards. They are too expensive for only one match effect.
      Ozil is our choice.

    • Hey,
      I started my Liga squad like you, but if you liked Adrian, you may like O. Martins for his 93 pace (78 DRI 74 SHO)

  102. hi ! please rate my BPL and L BBVA hybrid and also suggest if there is any improvement .
    Gk : Cassilas , Diego alves
    RB – Jao Pereiera , Juanfran
    CB – Ramos , Pepe , Maeschaerano
    LB – Marcelo , Jordi ALba
    CDM- Medle (IF) , SOng
    RM – DI maria , Jesus Navas
    LM – Hazard , Iniesta
    CAM – silva , nasri , Ozil
    ST – Benzema , Falcao , Tevez
    I am now planing to buy aguero and dani alves .

    • Hi.
      What can we say about your team? It’s fantastic. We don’t know if you got individual chemistry 9 for all but you can’t improve much more.
      Aguero should be your first improvement. Also, you can test if Bale, Xavi and Toure fit on your team.

      • Hi , in my team only hazard gives chem of 7 and medel gives 7 else all gives 9 . Hazard is awesome , is bale better than hazard . I tired xavi but he his too slow , i like pacy players instead . Toure ? Well my defence is a complete spanish one , willmhe bit a gud option ?
        I have plans to buy thiago silva in recent future , what can u say abt him ?

        • Thiago Silva is one of the best.
          Usually, gamers say that Bale is better as LM and Hazard as LW/LF. We agree with them. But if you are OK with Hazard, keep him.
          Touré is one of our favourites. He is really good. But you have to test the chemistry.

          • Hi , after buying aguero , i will get my hand on dani alves as rb weakest spot in my team , i dnt feel jaonpereira’s presense in my team :p
            Then i will but silva and mbale as u r suggesting , toure , ya i understand he is on of the best cdm around but he will affect my chemistry alot .

  103. Hi,

    Please can you suggest a 60k team that I can make in the 3-4-3 formation.
    I play a lot on the wings and also play lots of through balls through the middle and long shots from midfield. Ideally, I would like fast LM and RM as well as defence as I like to push up a lot so need players to keep up with counter attacks. I am on XBOX and any of your help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks. 🙂

  104. Hi ! Can u pls tel me in my 4-1-2-1-2 formation . Benzema in rs and aguero in ls , hazard in lm and di maria in rm , in cam when i play dsilva benzi gives chemof 7 while when i play nasri benzi give chem of 9 . What do u say nasri + benzi 9 or dsilva + benzi 7 ?

  105. How can I improve my squad


    Ivonovic. Terry. Puyol. Pepe. Fabio C.

    Kaka. Alonso. Fabregas.

    Higuan. Villa.

  106. HI. Can you rate my team?
    GK-Diego Alves
    RB-IF Adriano
    RM-Di Maria
    ST-IF Soldado

  107. can you rate my team and who can I make it better, I play with 433
    GK Casillas (Alves)
    RB Dani Alves (alba)
    CB Pique, Ramos (Pepe)
    LB Marcelo
    CM Xavi özil Iniesta (fabregas and alonso)
    RW Di maria (Navas)
    ST 89 Falcao (Benzema)
    LW Guardado

    I know iniesta is LM and I use him in CM I don’t like him in LM because he is so slow and he is just pretty good in CM

    • Hi. Welcome to our website.
      You have a wonderful squad.
      But we have some questions. Do you think that Piqué and Falcão UP are better than Pepe and Benzema ? We asked this because most of FUT 13 players have a different opinion. If pace is not very important to you and if you cross a lot to the head, it may be OK like this. Otherwise, think about it.
      Guardado is your weakest player. He is very fast but he is not so good in other things. In BBVA, a part of Iniesta and Ronaldo, you have no other great options as you do on the right side.
      We have no other suggestions.

  108. this is my team in 4-1-2-1-2 formation
    deigo alves
    jordi alba – mascherano – pepe – perriera
    xabi alonso
    david villa – jesus navas
    benzema – higuain

    i dont have much money so should i sell ozil to get di maria and do you have any other suggestions for my team

    • Hi.
      Navas is a good player and Ozil too. In our opinion you should keep with both. But it depends of your play style and your preferences.
      You have a quality very balanced team. With your budget you can not improve it much more. Try to save some coins to buy Di Maria, Piqué and Falcão.

  109. my team 4-5-1
    GK: diego lopez
    LB:fabio coentrio
    CM:xabi alonso
    RM:di maria

    works for me all the time 🙂

  110. Hi I have a 4-2-3-1 bbva squad nd I got most players that u recommended I have 30k but in my formation the CAM act like the wingers nd what I’ve read from what I winger should have my right side CAM or winger is thiago nd he doesn’t have those really great winger atributes what’s a good CAM that has all the winger atributes?

    • Hi!
      If you have enough coins, Modric can play well as winger. He has good pace, passing and dribbling. Ozil is also a great player for that position but he is much more expensive.
      If you want some one really cheap, you can try Isco. He is better than Thiago.

  111. I used to have a prem squad but I decided to change to la liga but I don’t know how I can improve my squad, this is what I have got already:
    Rb pereira
    Cb pepe
    Cb mascherano
    Lb alba
    Cm xavi
    Cm modric
    Cm Ozil
    Rw navas
    Lw villa
    St falcao 89 rated

    I have recently got modric and he makes a lot of counter attacks and scores some amazing goals.

    • Hi!
      Moving to La Liga is a smart move since you have cheaper players.
      About your team, you already have a very nice one.
      We can give you some suggestions but it depends of your budget, play style and preferences.
      Dani Alves and Ramos are probably too expensive but there are other players that you can try.
      On the goal, Diego Alves is very good. He is probably better than Valdez since he has better reflexes and diving, two of the most important GK attributes.
      Piqué is also a good option to Mascherano. Also, Marcelo is not so fast as Alba but is a better LB, the same happens with Navas and Di Maria. Finally, if you cross a lot to the head of your ST, Falcão is your man. Otherwise, try Benzema. He is one of the best FUT 13 Strikers.

  112. You should think about editing the costs a bit, as they’ve completely dropped over the past month. Ive spent about 7k on my team, and I was wondering if you could tell me where to start improving first? Heres my team:

    Diego Lopez (GK)
    Arbeloa (RB)
    Amorebieta (CB)
    Rami (CB)
    Abidal (LB)
    Busquets (CDM)
    Joaquin (RM)
    Guardado (LM)
    Turan (CAM) 86 rated version
    Higuin (ST)
    Soldado (ST)

    • You are right. But the prices will continue to drop and we can not edit it all the time. The article has the date of when it was published, so the prices are on that moment. Hope you understand this. Sorry.
      About suggestions, it depends of your play style, preferences and budget. If you do not want to spend much money, you can start by trying Miranda and João Pereira. If you have some more coins on your pocket, maybe you can invest them on Modric and Navas.

  113. Hi Here is my BBVA squad
    I play a 4-5-1
    LM David Villa Cam Xavi Cm Alonso Cam Ozil Rm Dí Maria
    LB Marcelo CB Pepe CB Puyol RB Dani Alves
    GK Diego Alves

    What can i do to improve my team?
    By the way i have about 75k right now.

  114. I run a 4312 and I like to cross the ball and cut to the middle to shoot, here’s my team:

    Lb: Marcelo
    Cb: puyol
    Cb: pepe
    Rb: arbeol
    Lcm: fabergas
    Cm: alonso
    Rcm: modric/ozil
    Cf: modric/ ozil
    St: folcoa
    St: benzema
    Or what about fabergas at cf?
    I was wondering should I put ozil at cf and modric at cm? Or the other way around? Thanks!

    • Hi.
      You need a GK: 🙂
      In our opinion Puyol is too slow. You can try Piqué to his place or even Mascherano if you don’t need some one with good heading. Sergio Ramos is the expensive choice and Miranda the cheap one.
      We think that Ozil should be your CF. But you can try it with Fabregas too. Modric is better as CM.

  115. Hi, i’d like to do a 4-3-3 mixing Barcelona and Real Madrid with a budget of about 150k. I generally like fast players (especially LB and RB). Can you give me advices please. Thank you

  116. I used to have a BPL but wanted to change. What can i do to improve? (I play 4-5-1
    I have
    ST Falcao (Higuain)
    LM David Villa (Pedro)
    CAM Xavi and Ozil (Kaka and Fabregas)
    CM Xabi Alonso (Modric)
    RM Di Maria (Navas)
    LB Marcelo
    CB Puyol and Pepe (Pique and Mascherano)
    RB Dani Alves (Pereira)
    GK Victor Valdes (Diego Alves)

    • It depends of your play style, preferences and budget.
      Casillas, Ramos, Messi and Ronaldo are probably too expensive to you (and for almost everyone).
      You already have the best team you can have… except Benzema. We love him.

      • Thanks for the advice. Right now i have about 80k do you think Ramos would be worth the money? Or Iniesta?

        I will look into purchasing Benzema if you really recommend him.

        • Hi.
          Iniesta is the second best LM/LW of BBVA. But if you only like fast players, maybe he is not the best guy to you.
          We can’t say if Ramos would be worth the money because 100k can be a lot to you but not to another gamer. What we can say is that he is one of the 5 best defenders of FUT 13. For sure.
          About Benzema it depends of how you play. He is a bit like Aguero. Fast, strong and with good shot. Falcão is not so good, except with the head.

  117. Hi, please can you recommend me a team for 200k. I would like the formation to be 5-2-2-1 as I play quite sweaty, so need solid defence with good interceptions, fast Wing backs and fast attackers to counter attack as quick as possible. I am on Xbox, and please can you take the market crash into consideration for the prices.
    Unless you think there is a formation better for sweaty counter attacks, then can you suggest a team in that formation instead. Thanks

  118. Hi, what do you think to my team?

    GK: Valdes
    CB: Sergio Ramos
    CB: Pepe
    CB: Pique
    LM: Iniesta
    CDM: Xabi Alonso
    CDM: Fabregas
    RM: Di Maria
    CAM: Xavi
    ST: Falcao
    ST: Benzema

    How can I improve it?

  119. my team currently is
    joao pereira, pepe, mascherano, alba,
    di maria, iniesta,
    falcoa (89), benzema
    my team plays ok but i was wondering if you think i should change anything to make it better.

  120. can you rate my team

    • Hi.
      Next time try to not use CAPS, please.
      We don’t know your play style, preferences and budget. So, it is harder to give you good advices.
      If you had enough coins to buy Neymar and Marcelo, maybe you can invest in some great players much more cheaper.
      Dede and Ramires are not so expensive and could be great improvements to Sidnei and Kaka places.

  121. can you rate my team and suggest better players, but at the moment i don’t have much money
    gk: diego alves (kameni)
    lb: fillipe (abidal) rb: joao pereira (juanfran) cb: pepe, rami (miranda, amorbieta)
    cdm: busquets (song)
    lm: david villa (pedro) rm: navas (sanchez)
    cam: kaka (turan)
    st: higuain, soldado (negredo)

    and can you also suggest another sub striker, i like them to be reasonably pacey

  122. Thanks a lot for a such nice work!

    Could you please suggest how can I improve my team without buying Messi, Ronaldo etc.? Formation 4-1-2-1-2. All players are in exact positions and in right formation. Chemistry 100. All individual chemistry 9.
    GK Valdes/Alves
    LB Marcelo/Alba
    RB Pereira/Arbeloa/Juanfran
    CB Pique/Pepe/Mascherano
    CDM Xabi/Song
    LM Guardado/Eliseu
    CAM Ozil/Modric/Turan
    RM Di Maria/ Navas
    ST Falcao/Benzema/Higuain

    P.S. how it’s possible to improve Morale to 100 without buying cards? And how important moral level is to player’s overall performance? What is the minimal level 60, 70 or more?


    • Hi. Thanks for your comment.

      First of all, you already have a great team for your budget. You have the best players for your position. We will not suggest any others since we already noticed that you love fast players and you already have the fastest ones.
      The only suggestion that we can make is about RB. You don’t need 3. Maybe you can change Arbeloa by Miranda. He will be your fourth CB.
      We know that Casillas, Dani, Messi and Ronaldo are very expensive. But do you have enough coins to buy Xavi. He is a good player.

      To keep morale always on 100 is must to win all the matches. You don’t need to do it. More than 70 is good. Check if you have a stadium with +8 and if you play at home.
      We can not say how much it is important but maybe affects 30% and the chemistry 70% of your player performance.


      • Thanks, for proposals!
        As I play with 2 CB’s so I need only 3 for rotation Pepe/Pique/Mascherano. And for RB I have 3 because I’m not sure which one should be sold Juanfran/Arbeloa -> one is better in defence, another is faster. Same situation in CAM position Turan/Modric -> one is with better dribbling and shooting, another with better passing and faster.

        I’ll try to take Xavi as you proposed. This will be next improvement. he will be main CAM and Ozil on bench. Later on I’ll try to have Iniesta as LM and the final shot will be Ramos to be stronger in defence but much later 🙂

        P.S. : So you think the best pair in RB would be Pereira/Miranda?

        Have a nice day!


  123. thanks i started a bbva 4-1-2-1-2 and i already had Llorente ST, Turan CAM, Toulalan CDM, Guardado LM and still have 25k

    • I tried the team but th players were to slow plz suggest me faster players

      ST Higuain (OK) ST Llorente (Tooooo slow)
      CAM Turan (Slow for his position)
      LM Guardado RM Navas (Both are very fast)
      CDM Toulalan (OK)
      LB Coentrao CB Pepe CB Miranda RB Pereira (All are very fast)

      And i still have 10k

  124. what can i upgrade
    ST Higuain 16 goals in 8 matches ST Soldado 8 goals in 4 matches
    CAM Modric
    LM Guardado RM Navas
    CDM Sergio Busquests
    LB Coentrao CB Carvalho CB Pepe RB Pereira
    GK Alves

  125. Great article as ever. I am trying to build a 442 la liga team and for most part it is very clear but there is just one question.

    For LM in a La liga team, other than Ronaldo (too expensive) and Iniesta (too slow), who would you recommend as the LM? (please include IF card if possible?) I would appreciate if there are several choices.

    • Hi Victor.
      Thanks for your comment.
      Firstly, you have Pedro and David Villa. Both have IF cards. Villa is better, especially if you often use these players to shoot, but Pedro is slightly faster. They are LW so you probably will need to use a LW>>LM card.
      The cheapest good choice is Eliseu UP. He is very fast and with decent attributes for a LM. Isco SIF is also a good choice but our favourite is Guardado IF: excellent pace, decent price, good work rates to a LM on most of formations, amazing dribble and also good shooting and passing.

      • Thanks very much, there’s indeed a lot of choices!! I will certainly try them over. Pity Ronaldo is over the top too expensive!!

  126. I have got a team can i make the team better with players under the team100k?
    Gk diego alves

  127. Hi. My team has a 4-1-2-1-2 formation.
    My players are:
    Diego Alves
    Jordi Alba
    Fabio Coentrao
    Xabi Alonso
    Isco IF or Pedro (LW)
    Di Maria
    Which players should I buy?
    Im thinking of Iniesta, and also of Xavi Hernandez but their pace isn’t good, and they are expensive… Pleaae help me ! Thanks

  128. Hi

    Can you give a review on my 4-1-2-1-2 squad and tips to improvise the team. and also suggest me for some subs

    cb pepe, miranda
    rb juanfran
    lb fabio contrao
    cdm xabi

    lm pedro
    rm sanchez

    • It is not possible to help without knowing how you play, which budget you have, what are your preferences…
      You have a nice team for your budget. But you need a GK. 🙂
      Some players that can fit very well in this team: Diego Alves, João Pereira, Modric and Navas.

  129. Hi:)
    I ve got a budget of 50 k and i dont know for which player i should save money for(casillas,alves,ramos,iniesta)
    My team


    • Hi.
      It depends of your play style and preferences but maybe you may think in Pepe and Silva. Any of the four players you suggest are good players but, in our opinion, Pepe is a must have. He will give speed to your CB’s.
      We also think that Alves is better than Valdes but it’s up to you.
      If speed is not much important to you, Iniesta should be your next buy.

  130. Hi I play 4-3-3, and got very lucky with a gold pack so I have 200k to spend to improve my squad, I mostly have 55-60 possession and when my opponent outplays me I tend to swap Cazorla and Nasri for Ramires and Fellaini, I was thinking about buying Vidic or are there other areas that I easily can improve and have overlooked?

    Joe Hart
    Sagna Vermaelen Kompany Ashley Cole
    Nasri Toure Cazorla
    Walcott Aguero Hazard

    • Maybe you should have posted in BPL guide.
      You already have a very nice team.
      Vidic seems to be a good buy but pay attention to his pace. He is a bit slow.
      Maybe you may spend some coins on David Silva and on some players to the bench: Tévez, Mata and RVP, for example.

  131. Hi! I have a 60 k budget and want to try a 5-2-2-1 liga bbva squad any advices? The reason I chose this formation is because I like the deadly forwards in front and that in liga bbva the midfielders are pretty slow so the 4-3-2-1 doesn’t work.

  132. Mi formacion es 4-1-2-1-2 y mi once es: Kameni, iraola, ricardo costa, cisokho, javi martinez(pivote) por delante a ambos lados susaeta y barkero, mediapunta beñat y arriba ruben castro y bojan….Que le parece? Que jugadores me recomiendas y porque? Jugadores de media menos de 84.

  133. my team is gk courtois blue 86 overall cb pepe and mascherano lb marcelo rb joao perrreira cm benat IF 83 lm isco IF 81 RM Di Maria Cam ozil and modric st benzema my formation is 4-5-1

  134. i have a liga bbva team with pepe and varane in cb, arbeola in rb, fabio conentrao in lb,xabi alonso essien khedira all in cm, modric in cf and i have benzema and falcao both in strike. anyway i could improve this team???

  135. What do u think about this team? And how could I improve it

    Arbeloa Pepe Piqué Contreao
    Xabi alonso
    Di Maria pedro
    Higuain Benzema

    • Hi!
      With that budget you can not improve much more.
      We prefer Diego Alves but Valdez is also a good GK. The same happens with João Pereira / Arbeloa and Kaka / Ozil. If you cross a lot to the head of your striker, Falcão would be a good addition.

  136. I can’t decide whether to pursue IF and TOTM/Y’s or start a new sqaud. I already have a Serie A squad. Thoughts on improving my BBVA team would be appreciated:
    ST: Benzema & Falcao (88)
    LM: Iniesta
    RM: Di Maria
    CAM: Xavi
    CDM: IF Xabi Alonso (88)
    CB: Ramos & Pique
    LB: Marcelo
    RB: Jordi Alba
    GK: Casillas

    Bench: Negredo IF (85), Varane TOTY (82), David Villa (LM), Victor Valdes, Cesc Fabregas, Jesus Navas, Khedira, Adriano IF (78), Arbeloa


  137. Hi,

    it has been a long time I didn’t visit your website but now I needed some help and found them, thanks.

    However, I have a really important suggestion, I know it isn’t easy but can you make an option so that the comments DON’T load all? For example, 10 comments displayed with pages related only for the comments, Page 1 we find the latest 10 comments, page 2 the comments from 11to 20…
    Or a button that loads all of these comments.

    It would make your page much more nice to users.

  138. This is a good squad ?
    Alba-Pepe -Mascherano-Pereira
    Falcao -Benzema
    GK Diego Alves

  139. Hi,
    My team has changed a lot this summer.
    What do you think about it :
    Alves-Mascherano-Ramos-Alba tots
    Pepe totw (in game i put mascherano here because mascherano has 5 chemistry here instead of 7)
    Di maria totw Cristiano ronaldo
    Benzema (i don t think xavi would fit with my play style)
    Aguero(9 chem). Leo messi
    And I also put cristiano and messi as st in game and aguero cam.
    I think it is the best squad i can have (of course i can t afford messi or cr7 IF). Maybe Neymar instead of benzema but i only have 90k.

    • Amazing team.
      It will be too dificult to get a better one.
      About Benzema vs Neymar, it depends of your play style. If you prefer strong players choose Benzema. If your prefer a skill player, choose Neymar.

  140. I play on PS3 but I decided to start a team on ios and prices r about a bit more then PC so Xavi costs 130K Iniesta costs 100K Cristiano Ronaldo 2M and Lionel messi 2M so those guyz e out of the question Casillas and dani Alves r also put cuz Alves is 100K and Casillas is 80K here’s wat I hav
    Maicon Puyol Pepe Cole
    Alexis Pedro
    Higuain Benzema
    PS this team has 100 Chem how can I make this team better.

    • What a great team!
      You can try Diego on the goal (for us is better than Valdez), Marscherano on Puyol place and Navas on the right. These are only some suggestions. We already have a good team.

  141. Hey, I read your article pretty nice and informative write up on Fut13. I have two 4-2-2-2 team based on La LIga/Spanish players.




    In the first team i need a replacement for Costa to partner Benzema. Can you suggest.

  142. Hey. I currently have a 3-5-2 bbva squad (fifa 13)
    Pepe-CB pique-CB Ramos-CB
    Alonso-CDM xavi-CDM
    Di Maria -RM David villa-LM
    Falcao-ST Benzema-ST

    I currently have 30k and was thinking of getting iniesta. However, I was thinking of putting him as CAM instead of lm. Villa is a class player. His shot is incredible and he is faster than iniesta. I think iniesta is more suited to the more central role. I went on futhead to check chemistry and it had 97, but with a manager, it will be 100. Do you think this would be a good idea?
