Introduction to the FIFA 18 Ligue 1 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.

All of these steps are necessary to have; or it could mean that the team is not always well built as it could be. This article aims to help those that want to form a FIFA 18 Ligue 1 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.

We received thousands of comments about similar guides that we have published in previous years. Most of them have asked us to help improve their teams and the players they had. It’s important that the readers understand that this guide is simply guidance. It’s a theme too vast and the player combinations are almost infinite. Besides, there are various factors that influence the choices, like one’s style of play, the formations used, the available budget, the preferences or even the time spent playing. There’s still one uncertain component: a good player for someone might not be for another. If there was a better team everyone would fight to get it. Part of the fun of FIFA 18 Ultimate Team is this: everyone has their personal club and players.

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

✔️ Only Gold Players
In this guide we didn’t consider silver or bronze player. Most players don’t assume them to be a better option than gold players, so to simplify the guide’s analysis we didn’t include them. In the future we may come to publish guides exclusively talking about these 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 Ligue 1 and with their original attributes were considered.

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

✔️ Position Analysis
To make the comprehension of this guide easier we divided the players in 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 Ligue 1 squads are suggested, we added a link where you can check anytime the updated prices.

 
 

 
 
 
 

Best FIFA 18 Ligue 1 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.

The goalkeepers with most prestige in the Ligue 1 are Ruffier and Enyeama.

When choosing a good goalkeeper it’s not only down to his rating. There are two fundamental attributes for choosing a good goalkeeper: reflexes and diving.

The first measures a goalkeeper’s agility when making a save. Enyeama is one of the goalkeepers with best reflexes in the world.

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

In this attribute, Anthony Lopes and Mandanda are the best ones.

The most experienced Ultimate Team players know that another leaning factor on a goalkeeper’s performance without considering the remaining four attributes: height. The more tall a goalkeeper is, better his chances of having a clean sheet.

Yohann Pelé and Ciprian Tătăruşanu are the tallest ones.

Your goal will be in safe hands whether you choose Ruffier or Subašić. Our preference goes to the Saint-Étienne goalkeeper mainly because of his good handling.

Best FIFA 18 Ligue 1 Centre Backs

CB
 

A goalkeeper task is made easier if in front of him are quality central backs. Their function is to stop the opponent from getting dangerously close to your team’s goal.

Thiago Silva is still the highest rated centre back playing in France.

On a centre back, two attributes assume particular importance on their performance: defending and physical, which represents strength, stamina, aggression and jumping.

A player with good at defending will have an easier chance of dispossessing the opponent and avoid him reaching your box.

It’s the case of the Thiago Silva, Glik and Perrin. It’s really hard to get past them.

The physical attribute shows the old heading capability but also how likely the players are to win game with their body. This is a crucial attribute when looking for the best centre back.

In this chapter, Florentin Pogba is who stands out.

Defending and heading may be useless against fast opponents. It’s necessary to fight fire with fire. No one likes feeling impotent when seeing you get overrun by extremely fast players. Even though, in a way, centre backs aren’t that fast, every team needs one of these players with a high pace attribute.

Maxime Le Marchand is the fastest centre back playing in the Ligue 1.

Thiago Silva is obviously our number one choice for this position. He is the one with the best defending and dribbling stats.

The big question is: who will partner with him? There are no other quality options but, in our opinion, Perrin is the best one. Glik is so slow…

Best FIFA 18 Ligue 1 Right Backs

RB | RWB
 

Full backs have the role of troubling the job of wingers. In addition, good full backs also support their team mates on offensive manoeuvres.

Dani Alves is the most popular right back playing in Ligue 1.

Kévin Malcuit75LOSC LilleFRA

 

There are very important attributes for any right back: defending and pace.
Since they’re defenders they should have good defending capacities. This reduces a team’s risk of conceding.

In France, no one defends as well as Kenny Tete.

A flanked game tends to be faster than a game based in the middle of the field. The players that fill these spaces are obligated to be fast, both penetrating defensive and attacking moves of the team. Pace is one of the most important requirements for a good full back. Even in FIFA 18.

Kévin Malcuit is the fastest RB playing in this league.

Dani Alves is the best choice for who needs a good Ligue 1 right back. However, if you need someone more focused on the defense, maybe you should try Meunier.

Best FIFA 18 Ligue 1 Left Backs

LB | LWB
 

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

On Ligue 1, there is a left back that stand out more than the other ones: Patrice Evra.

If you need someone with more attacking skills, you should try Kurzawa.

Best FIFA 18 Ligue 1 Defensive Midfielder

CDM
 

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.

Fabinho is clearly the most popular central defensive midfielder in Ligue 1.

Ibrahim Amadou75LOSC LilleCAM
Mathieu Bodmer75Amiens SCFRA

 

There are a variety of attributes in a central defensive midfielder that you have to give attention: defending, so that the first defender of team works; strength, so that you win all brawls in a prone area of the field; heading, to win possession in aerial moves like goal kicks; pace, so that you cover the most terrain on the field as possible; stamina, so they can equally participate in offensive and defensive moves (especially useful for players with high/high work rates); passing and possession so that he can properly start attacks. In our opinion the two first are the most important.

Normally using a central defensive midfielder is associated with having a deficit of elements in your defence. So, it makes sense that when you search for a player to occupy this position you’d want players that can defend.

Fabinho is a really good choice for teams that want to complicate an opponent’s game in the space between the midfield and the defence.

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

Again, Fabinho is one of the best on this side.

Fabinho is undoubtedly the best player for this position. He has the best dribbling and defending stats, and in the other four basic attributes is always the second one.

Lucas Tousart is our second choice. He is much cheaper than Luiz Gustavo but also a better player.

A lot of games are decided in the midfield and not close to the goals. The players that play in these zones are the ones that should create the game and define its rhythm.

Verratti is the most popular centre midfielder in this league.

Centre midfielders are responsible for discovering lines that break the opponents defence. Their passing quality has to be really good so they can assist forwards.

Marco Verratti has a great passing stat.

Once again, Marco Verratti is the best dribbler playing on the Ligue 1.

Verratti is the best one in the most important attributes, passing and dribbling, but also in the defensive ones. He is our first choice for this position.

Pastore is the second most popular CM, but our preference goes for Sanson, Seri and even Moutinho. They attack as well as the PSG midfielder but defend much better than he does.

Best FIFA 18 Ligue 1 Central Attacking Midfielders

CAM
 

An attacking centre midfielder is responsible for creating chances to score. He should have a good dribbling, a decent passing, a high long shot stat and a great vision.

Wesley Sneijder is the most popular CAM playing in this league.

How we explained, the central attacking midfielders need to have good passing stats, so they can assist forwards.

Sneijder is the CAM with best passing stat in France.

If a CAM is a good dribbler, he can make all the difference when the team is attacking.

Nabil Fekir is the best dribbler.

If you need a good CAM, maybe you should pick another league. Sneijder is OK but he will not make the difference in your team. Fékir is faster and stronger but can’t assist his team mates to goal as Sneijder does.

Best FIFA 18 Ligue 1 Right Wingers

RM | RW | RF
 

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

Ángel Di María is the most popular right winger playing in the Ligue 1.

There are three fundamental attributes for a winger: pace, dribbling and passing.

Pace is probably the biggest weapon of these players. They use it to evade opponents and getting to the other side, many times via sprints on the side lines.

Lucas is the only fast right winger on Ligue 1.

Just being fast doesn’t cut it to reach the opponents box, having good dribbling to surpass the opponents’ players that appear on the way.

There are a lot of players gifted in dribbling, including Lucas, Di María and Traoré.

When reaching the opponents box the winger has to decide what to do. Normally, they choose to cross to the forwards. That is why it’s important for them to have good passing.

Di María has the best passing stat.

To us, and probably to everyone, it is extremely easy to choose the best right winger from Ligue 1: Di Maria. The only exception is if you need someone even faster than him. In that case, Lucas will be perfect.

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

Neymar, the most expensive player in football history, is obviously the most popular on Ligue 1.

Neymar is clearly the best left winger. He is the one with the best passing and the best shooting stats.

If you can not pay his price, you have three high-quality alternatives: Lemar, Payet and Draxler. Depay is also a very interesting player. It’s incredible how someone of this quality may be so cheap.

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

Cavani is the most popular striker playing in France.

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

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

Falcão has the higher shooting stat.

Jump, strength and stamina are the ingredients to the new physical attribute, very important when we are analysing the best forwards: jump to score with the head; strength to dispute the ball with the opponents; and stamina to sprint in direction of goal at any time of the game.

Mitroglou has the best physical stats.

Depending on the style of play and formation, having good shooting and heading may not be enough for a striker. Especially in games that privilege counter-attack, pace is a very important attribute.

Kylian Mbappé is the fastest striker in Ligue 1.

Cavani and Mbappé are two good players that complement each other very well. The first one is a goal machine, while the other one has a bad header but a lot of pace.

Far from the quality of these two, you have Falcão and Balotelli. Both have weak points. The first one needed more pace, while the Nice’s striker needed better work rates.

FIFA 18 Ligue 1 Squad Suggestions

Ideas to help you building your FIFA 18 Ligue 1 Squad
 

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

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

📝 SUMMARY

The choice for this team’s players was based on the analysis made previously.

Your goal will be in safe hands with Ruffier.

Thiago Silva and Perrin are both untouchables in the defence. The only players that have not their place in this team guaranteed are Dani Alves, because of his poor work rates, and Evra, because his lack of attacking skills.

Fabinho helps the back four and tries to start the attacks, while Verratti is responsible to assist Cavani and Mbappe.

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 choices for this more affordable team players was based on analysis made previously.

In the goal, Stéphane Ruffier is good enough to keep your goal safe.

Marquinhos and Perrin are good examples of how it is possible to build a great team without paying too much coins. Evra and Dani Alves fill the other spots.

The central midfield position of this team has to be of Fabinho. He builds up the first barrier between your goal line and the opponent, making his physicality and defensive attributes count. Besides that, he starts the attacks very well, thanks to his passings skills. Sanson and Seri complete the midfield.

In the attack, Di Maria and Lemar have the mission to assist Falcão.

If you still have some room in your budget, Cavani and even Matuidi are players that would improve this squad a lot.

  1. Hi
    I was wondering, do you guys take work rates into account? (Because of Cavani and Kane (when i was reading your prem guide) were 2nd and 5th respectivly but they both have high/high work rates and balloteli having low/low work rates)
    And how much do you guys think People should take work rates into account when building teams.
    Thanks
    P.S:Excuse any english mistakes

  2. Thanks for your guide one more time. I have a specific question, I have the full unlimitted budget squad and with the same 4121 formation you describe here, how do you recommend to decide who is best fit to become 23rd guy in the team? I was wondering in general, do you pick a versatile player? A CM to be able to play almost in any midfield place? I am thining of Sanson, but I also like to add a 5th ST… What do you think? Thanks!

  3. You didn’t include Keita Balde on the left wing. Do you really think he is that bad or did you just forget him ?

  4. why Ruffier > Subasic?

    Overal Ruffier 85 = 85 Subasic
    Diving Ruffier 82 < 84 Subasic
    Reflex Ruffier 87 = 87 Subasic
    Height Ruffier 188 < 191 Subasic

    Im not saying Subasic is better, just asking why Ruffier is?

    • Hi. As we said in the guide, it isn’t easy to choose between them.
      Goalkeepers are the easiest players to analyze because they only have 6 attributes and height. In a common player, you have to analyze dozens of in-game stats but with GK you only need to focus on these stats. The rating is not important. In our opinion, the two most important are reflexes and diving. Subasic is slightly better in one of these. The third one is handling. In this case, Ruffier is much better. That’s why we think he is better.

  5. Nice guide

    I have around 40/50k to spend on a team, what league would you suggest out of la liga, calico A or Ligue 1?

    • Maybe Liga NOS. You only need 15k to build the best team from this league but then you can upgrade it with many IF cards (Ricardo Pereira, Casillas, Rui Patricio, Bas Dost, etc). We will publish a guide about this league on Sunday. Maybe you should wait to see and take your decision.
