Introduction to the FIFA 19 Bundesliga Squad Guide

OTHER LEAGUES 🇬🇧 🇪🇸 🇩🇪 🇮🇹 🇫🇷 🇵🇹
 

Building a team is the biggest challenge in FIFA 19 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 19. 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 19 Bundesliga squad. Even the players that have a Bundesliga team, 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 and custom tactics 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 19 Ultimate Team is this: everyone has their personal club and players.

Remember that this year, we published separate Bundesliga guides for each position. You can visit them, clicking in the colourful links in the top of this page.

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:

1 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.

2 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.

3 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 Bundesliga and with their original attributes were considered.

4 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.

5 FLUCTUATION OF PRICES
In the chapter where FIFA 19 Bundesliga squads are suggested, we added a link where you can check anytime the updated prices.

 
 
 

Bundesliga

FIFA 19 Bundesliga overview

The Bundesliga lives in the shadow of Premier League and La Liga but the truth is that it has many quality players.

The qualification of the champion is made through the made points system. Whichever team gathers the most points wins the league. The first four classified gain access to the champions league of the next year, while the fifth and sixth qualify to the Europa League and the last three trade places with the first two qualified of the 2. Bundesliga and with the play-off winner. Every season starts in August and finishes in May, having 34 game weeks with nine matches each, being a total of 306 matches per season.

The Bundesliga is the most watched sports league in the world and the third best league classified in the UEFA league coefficients.

Started in 1962, the Bundesliga has been conquered by twelve clubs. The dominant club is Bayern Munich, with a total of 28 titles. Borussia Dortmund (5), Borussia Mönchengladbach (5), Werder Bremen (4), Hamburger SV (3), VfB Stuttgart (3), FC Köln (2) and FC Kaiserslautern (2) were the other teams that won more than once.

Bundesliga is a good choice to who is looking for quality players, but doesn’t want to spend so much coins as happens in Premier League and La Liga based squads.

FIFA 19 Bundesliga Squad Suggestions

Ideas to help you building your FIFA 19 Bundesliga Squad

The team suggestions that follow are simple graphic indicators of the Bundesliga articles already published. 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, custom tactics, 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 guides published previously.

If there are undoubted players in this team, Neuer is certainly one of them. It is clear his superiority.

Boateng and Alaba are untouchables in any defence of any league. In our opinion, the other spots of the defence should be filled by Kimmich and Hummels. However, you may have a different opinion, especially if you like fast players. It isn’t the case. Both are slow but they are great with the ball on their feet – amazing passing and dribbling stats for someone playing in these positions.

This league has always a top quality player for each position, who is much better than all the other ones. The exception is the defensive midfielder, where Javi Martínez is not good enough. In fact, his main problem is pace. Our suggestion is to use a centre midfielder with defensive skills, like Witsel or Tolisso. We know that Goretzka is not perfect for this position but he has the minimum required attributes and using him as a CDM, leaves the CAM spot to James Rodriguez.

Who builds an unlimited budget Bundesliga squad usually chooses a formation with wingers, to take advantage of the high quality of Robben and Reus. Obviously, the same applied to Lewandowski in the attack. Depending on your play style, you can use Muller or Werner to the other spot.

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 team were based on the position guides we already have published.

Most of the cards of the previous team are too expensive to be used in the medium budget squad. In fact, only Kimmich is still in the starting eleven. Hrádecký, Naldo, Vogt and Roussillon are far from the same quality but they allow you to save many coins.

The central midfield position of this team has to be of Witsel. He builds up the first barrier between your goal line and the opponent, making his physicality attributes count. Tolisso and Thiago complete this interesting midfield.

In the ultrasonic attack, Bellarabi and Coman have the mission to assist Timo Werner. We believe he is the right choice for this formation, instead of using Muller, who is more expensive and not so good when alone in the attack.

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

📝 SUMMARY

Once again: the choice for this budget team was based on the position guides published previously.

Lukáš Hrádecký and Piszczek are cheap enough to keep their sports in the team. Toprak and the twins Bender complete the defence.

In the midfield, Delaney and Götze complement each other well. The first one is strong, quick and aggressive, the second is a player that usually pushes forward to assist his colleagues. Bellarabi and Bailey fill the wings in order to assist Volland and Plèa.

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.

  1. Hi Rodrigo,

    Would you replace Goretzka with Guilavogui’s fut swap card I can’t decide if he’s quality or not?

  2. Hi Rodrigo,

    Gotze has been released this week as Flashback Card. Would you add him on your first squad? If yes, replacing Muller as ST or James as Cam?

    Secondly, do you prefer Goretzka or Kroos as CDM?

    Thank you so much!
