THE BEST FIFA 20 LIGUE 1 DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDERS

Many of the FUT formations require some midfielders that have a natural aptitude to defend. Central defensive midfielders distinguish themselves for being especially aimed to help the back line. According to their attributes and their work rates, they can also be useful to start attacks. They occupy a very strategic position in the field.
You need to look at several attributes when choosing a central defensive midfielder: defending, to be able to support the back line; strength, to win possession more times; heading, to win the ball in aerial moves like goal kicks; pace, to cover as many spaces as possible; stamina, so he can equally participate in offensive and defensive plays (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 ones.

Usually, defensive midfielders are chosen to help the defence. So, it makes sense that they have high defensive stats. The area of the field occupied by CDMs is the one where most ball disputes happen. Strong players will have highest probabilities of winning the ball.

THE BEST FIFA 20 LIGUE 1 CENTRE MIDFIELDERS

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 chances and set the pace of the game.
Centre midfielders are responsible for discovering lines that break the opponent’s defence. Their passing quality has to be really good so they can assist forwards.

Good dribbling skills allows the team to move forward, creating potential problems to the other team.

His outstanding dribbling and passing skills, makes Verratti one of the most important players of Ligue 1 midfield. Aouar is also an interesting player but he is not good at the defence. If you want someone able to help the back line, Paredes and Herrera are who you are looking for.

THE BEST FIFA 20 LIGUE 1 ATTACKING MIDFIELDERS

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 stat.

Draxler and Sarabia are two great options for this position. They have the best dribbling stats and they are also in the top for shooting and passing stats. For low-budget squads, we reccomend Payet.

THE BEST FIFA 20 LIGUE 1 RIGHT MIDFIELDERS

Wingers are usually responsible for giving game width in the attack.
Pace is probably the biggest weapon of these players. They use it to escape opponents. However, to be fast isn’t enough to reach the opponent’s box. A good dribbling stat will help you to surpass the opponents’ players that appear on the way. When reaching the opponent’s box, the winger has to decide what to do. Normally, he decides to cross and that’s why it’s so important to have good passing stats.

Di María is by far the best right midfielder playing in France. He has the best dribbling and passing stats, the two most important attributes.

Thauvin and Gelson Martins are the best alternatives. The first one shoots and assists better his teammates, while the Monaco’s midfielder is faster and has a better dribbling including 5 star skills.

THE BEST FIFA 20 LIGUE 1 LEFT MIDFIELDERS

The left wingers have exactly the same role as their team mates from the other side.
Pace is probably the biggest weapon of these players. They use it to escape opponents. However, to be fast isn’t enough to reach the opponent’s box. A good dribbling stat will help you to surpass the opponents’ players that appear on the way. When reaching the opponent’s box, the winger has to decide what to do.

Neymar is obviously the best left winger of this league but you probably won’t have enough coins to buy him. If this is the case, Bamba, Gradel and Onykuru are decent replacements.
