Introduction to the FIFA 18 Liga NOS Squad Guide

 

Building a team is the biggest challenge in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team. It doesn’t need to be the best team, this is because the budget may not allow it, but it needs to be the player’s stature for him to obtain success.

When choosing which players to play with, you will have to look carefully at their attributes. Choosing a team based on ratings is one of the most common mistakes on FUT 18. It’s precisely this aspect that this guide focuses on. For each position, and focusing on the truly important attributes, we’ll show you who are the best athletes to choose.

It’s also important that the player checks to see if the player he chooses fits the formations he likes to play in. For example, a good full back will be useless if the player only uses a formation with three defenders. According to these formations, the player must be cautious and look at the work rate. Try to relate them with the ones we advise in our Formations Guide.

Last but not least, it’s mandatory that you tune all of your team so that the individual and team chemistry will be as high possible. For this last step to be easier, the majority of the players start to define the type of team they’re building. Some choose to gather players of the same nationality, while others decide to form a team of players from the same league. There are also more experienced players that can form hybrid teams without damaging team chemistry a lot.

This article aims to help those that want to form a FIFA 18 Liga NOS squad. Even the players that already have a team based in this league, could take out some valuable conclusions from this guide that could help you make your team even better.

Another important point and that must stay very clear is that whoever is reading this guide, it’s about some criteria we chose and should be of everyone’s knowledge:

✔️ Only Gold Players
In this guide we didn’t consider silver or bronze player. Most players don’t assume them to be a better option than gold players, so to simplify the guide’s analysis we didn’t include them. In the future we may come to publish guides exclusively talking about these qualities.

✔️ Only Regular Players
In this guide, we didn’t consider In Forms (IF). They’re extremely expensive and in most cases are not considered good value for money. They should only be used by players with generous budgets, that already have the best team possible and that want small upgrades.

✔️ Only Normal Players
In this guide, we didn’t consider players that have been transferred to other clubs or that have been reviewed (UP). Only players that started their season in the Liga NOS and with their original attributes were considered.

✔️ Only Original Attributes
In this guide, we didn’t consider changes made on a player’s performance such happens when applying training or chemistry styles cards.

✔️ Position Analysis
To make the comprehension of this guide easier we divided the players in ten distinct groups in order of their original position: Goalkeeper (GK), central backs (CB), right backs (RB and RWB), left backs (LB and LWB), central defensive midfielders (CDM), central midfielders (CM), central attacking midfielders (CAM), right midfielders (RM, RW and RF), left midfielders (LM, LW and LF) and forwards (CF and ST).

✔️ Fluctuation of Prices
In the chapter where FIFA 18 Liga NOS squads are suggested, we added a link where you can check anytime the updated prices.

 
 

 
 
 
 

Best FIFA 18 Liga NOS Goalkeepers

GK
 

Goalkeepers are the players that are used least on the field. Because of this they are also first ignored when building a team. Most players start their purchases with a forward, later they strengthen the midfield, the defence and only later the goal. The truth is a good goalkeeper may be worth a lot of goals. They are a good investment because they are normally the most economically accessible players.

Many of the FIFA 18 Ultimate Team formations require some midfielders that have a natural aptitude to defend. Central defensive midfielders distinguish themselves for being especially aimed to help the more retreated line of their teams. According to their attributes and their work rates, they can also be useful for starting attacks. They are players that occupy a very strategic position in the field.

FIFA 18 Liga NOS Squad Suggestions

 

The team suggestions that follow should serve merely as orientation because it’s impossible to build a team that fits everyone. They depend on various factors we don’t know such as budget, formation, style of play and player preferences.

To try and explore the needs of the maximum player as possible we suggest two teams with different budgets and formations: 4-1-2-1-2 with unlimited budget and 4-4-2 with a low budget.

📝 SUMMARY

Liga NOS has good goalkeepers. Your goal will be in safe hands whether you choose Rui Patrício or Iker Casillas. Both have improved cards.

Felipe, Mathieu and Ricardo Pereira are untouchables in the defence. Alex Telles is also a good defender but it’s not easy to choose between him and Grimaldo. There are other players with good defensive and physical skills but they are usually too slow. It’s the case of Sebastián Coates and Jardel.

Liga NOS has two good defensive midfielders. Danilo Pereira, our favourite, is faster and a more complete players, while William Carvalho is more creative. For the CAM position, Pizzi is the best one. We love his high/medium work rates and amazing stamina.

Who builds an unlimited budget Liga NOS squad should use a formation with wingers. There are quality choices for this position. On the right, Gelson Martins is a extremely fast 5 starts dribbler. It’s incredible how a player like him is so cheap. On the left side, Acuña is less popular than Brahimi but gives more options to the team.

Jonas and Bas Dost are the perfect pair to the attack. The Brazilian striker plays much better than his stats show. Crossing to the Dost’s head is for sure one of the best ways to score with this team.

This is a extremely cheap squad. Since many of these players already received an IF or special affordable card, you can easily improve it.

Once all the players reach maximum individual chemistry via loyalty (achieved by each player after 10 matches for your club or by being pack pulled) you can go without a manager for your squad. They’ll be of no use while wasting contracts.

📝 SUMMARY

The cards of this league are so cheap that there is no big difference between what you pay for the unlimited budget squad and the low budget squad. However, the first one is much better than the second one. We strongly recommend you to build the unlimited budget squad we published.

In the goal, Júlio César will try to keep your goal safe, with the help of Paulinho, Lisandro López, Jardel and Konan..

In the midfield, you will need someone able to help the the back line. Samaris is the perfect man for that job, giving more freedom to Herrera do what he likes to do. If you want a more attacking player, picks Bruno Fernandes instead of him.

In the attack, the wingers Salvio and Rafa (can be replaced by Cervi) have the mission to assist Raúl Jiménez and Welthon.

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