Introduction to the FIFA 18 Russian Football Championship 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 Russian League 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) or special cards. 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 Russian League 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 Russian League squads are suggested, we added a link where you can check anytime the updated prices.

 
 

 
 
 
 

Best FIFA 18 Russian League 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 Russian League Squad Suggestion

 

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

Since the players of this league are all very cheap, it makes no sense to publish more than one squad. The difference between an unlimited budget squad and a low budget squad is just a few thousand coins.

📝 SUMMARY

Once again, Akinfeev is the best goalkeeper playing in Russia.

There are many centre backs with great defensive skills in this league but (almost) all of them are too slow. That’s the case of Andreas Granqvist, César Navas or Vasiliy Berezutskiy. The best CBs of the Russian League are
Branislav Ivanović and Vedran Ćorluka. However, both are slow and have high/high work rates. Dzhikiya, our third choice, is not suitable for this spot because he has also high/high work rates. Emanuel Mammana is not as good as all these players but at least he will not be out of position. The choices are not easier on the right side of the defence. Our preference goes for Mário Fernandes, but Smolnikov is also a decent right back. In our opinion, the other spot of the defence should be filled by Domenico Criscito.

For the defensive midfielder position we picked Noboa. He his decent in the defence and probably even better in the attack. We love to see players with hight/hight work rates and a very high stamina. He will give much more security to your back line. In front of him, Manuel Fernandes is responsible to assist hiis teammates. Promes and Shatov are the wingers.

Smolov is the best striker playing in Russia and Ari the best alternative to him.

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.
