Introduction to the FIFA 19 LaLiga 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 LaLiga squad. Even the players that have a LaLiga 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 LaLiga 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 LaLiga 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 LaLiga squads are suggested, we added a link where you can check anytime the updated prices.

 
 
 

LaLiga

FIFA 19 LaLiga overview

Arguably no league has as good players as the main football competition in Spain. The qualification for the champion is made through the points system. Whichever team gathers the most points wins the league. The first four classified gain access to the champions league in the following year, while the fifth and sixth qualify for the Europa League and the last three trade places with the first two promoted from the Segunda División and with the play-off winner. Every season starts in August and finishes in May, having 38 game weeks with 10 matches each, being a total of 380 matches per season.

The LaLiga is the third most watched football league in the world and the best league classified in the UEFA league coefficients.

Started in 1928, LaLiga has only been conquered by nine clubs. The dominant clubs are Real Madrid and Barcelona, with a total of 33 and 25 titles. Atlético de Madrid (10), Atlético de Bilbao (8), Valência (6) and Real Sociedad (2) were the other teams that have won the league more than once, while Deportivo la Coruna, Real Bétis and Sevilla only won the title once.

There are many great player choices to make which will make an even better team for you to aim to build. But, since it’s the league with better players, their prices are high. Only the Premier League players are more expensive than these ones. To the players with a limited budget, there are other better options.

FIFA 19 LaLiga Squad Suggestions

Ideas to help you building your FIFA 19 LaLiga Squad

The team suggestions that follow are simple graphic indicators of the LaLiga 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 analysis made on previous guides.

Courtois is the natural choice to the goal. However, you will be in safe hands if you use replace him by Oblak.

Sergio Ramos keeps on being the boss of the defensive foursome. His weakest point is the attacking work rate and that’s why someone more defensive should play next to him. That’s the case of Varane. These two are getting better and better every year. Marcelo imposes himself at the left back position, while at right back Carvajal is good enough to take the position. You can also use Nelson Semedo in case you need more pace.

To the midfield you have basically two options: Modric as CAM and Casemiro as a CDM; or Modric as a CDM and Isco as a CAM. It’s up to you to decide how you will use the Madrid’s midfielders Casemiro, Modric, Isco and even Kroos for these two spots. In our opinion, you should only follow the second option if you have an attacking style. Modric is originally a box to box CM but he can play at high level on the CAM position. Besides that, Casemiro will give you much more security to your defensive line. Not even Kroos has the defensive skills he has.

One of the good things that happened to this league was the new position of Messi. Thanks to that, Bale has now room on our starting eleven, and Coutinho can play on the opposite side. The two spots of the attack are obviously for Lionel Messi and Luis Suárez, an amazing goal machine.

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 goal, Navas is perfect for this squad. He is leveled with the best goalkeepers of this league, except in his height.

Giménez and Paulista are both fast and solid defensively. Carvajal is the only player who keeps his spot on this team while Filipe Luís’s assertiveness completes our defending foursome.

To the central position of the midfield, our preference goes for Kondogbia, since he has the muscle that every midfield needs and also for his balanced attacking and defensive skills. Saul and Rakitic complete the midfield.

Lemar and Dembélé are two very popular young players with guaranteed place in this team.

Over the attack line, Rodrigo is our first choice. He’s fast, has good skills and was one of the most important upgrades on this league. However, if you need someone stronger and with better heading stats, you should try Diego Costa.

If you still have some room in your budget, you should try Promes. He was one of the most pleasant surprises on this year. Alba and Kroos are even more expensive but they would improve this squad a lot.

📝 SUMMARY

The choice for this budget team was based on analysis made previously.

Asenjo is our choice for the goal. However, if you have a few more coins, upgrading to Neto would be a good improvement. Sergi Roberto, Gabriel Paulista, Nacho Fernández and Theo Hernández complete the defence.

In the midfield, Thomas Teye Partey and Rafinha complement each other well. The first one is strong, quick and aggressive, while the second is a player that usually pushes forward to assist his colleagues. The Portuguese wingers Gelson Martins and Gonçalo Guedes fill the wings in order to assist Gameiro and Mariano who have both been chosen for their combination of pace and finishing stats. This team could be cheaper if we wanted but for a small effort you can add players like Paulista, Partey and Mariano who will make a huge difference in the way your team will play.

  1. Love your guides!
    I am currently playing a decent PL squad.

    Firmino
    Mane Eriksen Lucas (potm)
    Fabinho Dembele
    Robertson van dijk Sanchez tripper
    Alison

    I guess the market value is about 4-500k as Lucas and Dembele Are untradeable.

    The problem is that upgrading my team is really expensive now. I think I could get a really good La liga squad instead. Would you recommend trying it out? Would be your best squad minus the attacking three.

    • Thank you.
      In my opinion, Serie A still has the best value for money teams. Prices are still very high and for that reason, you have two options: you keep with the team you have for a few more weeks; or you buy one from another league.
      Your PL team looks nice.

      • Thanks for the reply!
        I ended up with a hybrid, using La Liga defence and Brazillian attack for now.

        Using:

        Firmino
        Coutinho. Lucas POTM
        IF Talisca
        Paulinho. Casemiro
        Luiz Godin. Ramos. Carvajal
        Oblak
        Its working out great. I find the chinese league Brazillian a great value for coins spent.

        However, my luxury problem now is that I sant to keep Lucas and the defence, but still upgrade the squad. I packed Aubameyang from Squad battle rewards and am above 300k og I sell him. I am considering going for Isco and Griezmann/ Suarez. Which would boost the attack, but loose 2 chem for Lucas. There are no la liga right wingers comparing to him except for Bale atm.

        Another option is 4-4-2 and using Aubameyang with firmino as right striker. I know he might be better than both Suarez and Griezmann.

        If I do that, i can switch Paulinho with Saul/Kroos and get a full La liga squad except for Lucas. Do you see any other good options?

  2. Did you change your guide style?I like the old one better when you included top 5 players per position.What do you think?

  3. Are you gonna do a Hybrid squads guide? That will be amazing. I wanna try it, but Idk where to start. I got my La Liga squad with Telles and Martial…
