Introduction to the FIFA 19 Ligue 1 Squad Guide

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 Ligue 1 squad. Even the players that have a Ligue 1 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 Ligue 1 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 Ligue 1 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 Ligue 1 squads are suggested, we added a link where you can check anytime the updated prices.

 
 
 

Ligue 1

FIFA 19 Ligue 1 overview

The Ligue 1 is the fifth best league classified in the UEFA league coefficient. It became more popular in the last years because of the high investments made by Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain which brought well-known players like Thiago Silva, Ibrahimovis and Neymar to the French fields.

The qualification of the champion is made through the made points system. Whichever team gathers the most points wins the league. Every season starts in August and finishes in May, having 38 game weeks with ten matches each, being a total of 380 matches per season.

Started in 1932, the French league has been conquered by nineteen clubs. Saint-Étienne won it by ten times. The last one was in 1981. Marselha (9), Monaco (8), Nantes (8), Paris Saint-Germain (7) and Lyon (7) are the other big names of this competition.

Ligue 1 is a decent choice for who wants to avoid expensive players from the three main leagues. However, Serie A is still much better value for money.


 
 
 
 

FIFA 19 Ligue 1 Squad Suggestions

Ideas to help you building your FIFA 19 Ligue 1 Squad

The team suggestions that follow are simple graphic indicators of the Ligue 1 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.

Buffon is the natural choice to the goal. Thiago Silva and Kimpembe are both untouchables in the defence. We can’t say the same about Meunier, because in the bench there is Dani Alves, and Kurzawa, who is ‘only’ a decent player.

Since there isn’t Fabinho, Matuidi or any good CDM, it’s Verratti who fills this position. He helps the back four and tries to start the attacks, while Fékir is responsible to assist Cavani and Depay.

On the wings, we have the two best players from the Ligue 1: Neymar on the left and Mbappé on the right.

Excepcionally, we have another suggestion for Ligue 1 squads with unlimited budgets. In this alternative squad, we replaced Fékir by Depay, adding Di María to the right wing and Mbappé to the first line of the attack. You can minimize the chemistry loss applying a RW-RF item to Mbappé and ST-CF CF-CAM items to Depay.

📝 SUMMARY

The choices for this more affordable team players was based on position’s guide published previously.

In the back line, Buffon and Thiago Silva are too expensive to a medium budget squad. They were replaced by Anthony Lopes and Marquinhos. Meunier, Kimpembe (what a nice surprise) and Kurzawa keep their spot in this team.

In the midfield we have three good players. Rabiot builds up the first barrier between your goal line and the opponent, making his physicality and defensive attributes count. Fékir and Draxler are the other two. They have better attacking skills.

In the attack, Di Maria and Niang have the mission to assist Depay.

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

📝 SUMMARY

Once again, this affordable team was based on analysis made on previous guides.

European champions Anthony Lopes is our choice for the goal. Kehrer, Perrin, Sidibé and Kurzawa complete the defence.

In the midfield, Sanson and Tousart are two balanced players ready to help the attack but also able to give security to the back line. Traoré and Niang fill the wings in order to assist Balotelli and Dembélé who have both been chosen for their combination of pace and finishing stats.
