LIGUE 1 SQUAD

This page helps you to build your FIFA 20 Ligue 1 squad.

FIFA 20 LIGUE 1 SQUAD SUGGESTIONS

For all those players who plan to build a FIFA 20 Ligue 1 squad, we’ve conducted an extensive analysis on the best players and suggested squads for different budgets.
Building a team is the biggest challenge in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team. It doesn’t need to be the best team, since the budget may not allow it, but it needs to be a team designed for your style and needs.

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. For each position, and focusing on the truly important attributes, we’ll show you who are the best players to choose.

It’s also important to check if the player you choose fits the formations you like to play in. For example, a good full-back will be useless if the player only uses a formation with three defenders.

Last but not least, you should try to get the maximum chemistry possible. Most of the players base their squads on a single league or nation, but the most experienced ones are able to build hybrid teams without hurting chemistry.
This guide is based on our perception of the game, which may be different from yours. It should only be used as an orientation, since it’s impossible to build a team that fits everyone. Besides that, there are several factors we don’t know that influence the choices, such as budget, formation, custom tactics, instructions, style of play and player preferences.

Another important point that must stay very clear to whoever is reading this guide, it’s about some criteria we used:

Only Gold Players
Silver and bronze players are not taken into account in this guide. Most of them are not good enough to replace the gold ones.

Only Regular Players
IF and special items are not taken into account in this guide. Most of them can’t be considered good value for money and should only be used by players with a good budget.

Only Normal Players
Upgraded or transferred items are not taken into account in this guide. Only players who have started their season in this league and with their original attributes were considered.
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 Paris Saint-Germain which brought well-known players like Thiago Silva, Ibrahimovic 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 (8) and Lyon (7) are the other big names of this competition.
Don’t forget that we have published separate guides for each position.

The choice for this team’s players was based on the analysis made in the position guides. To understand why we picked player A instead of player B, please take a look at those guides.

Keylor Navas, the Ligue 1 goalkeeper with best reflexes and diving, is the natural choice for a squad with unlimited budget.

In our opinion, Marquinhos and Kimpembe are the best centre-backs of this league. However, Thiago Silva is still a great player and should be used in 5xx formations or when you don’t need fast CBs. Meunier and Bernat are the right choices for fullbacks.

Di María and Neymar are the obvious choices for the wings but in the centre, things get much more complicated. Draxler and Verratti are probably the two best midfielders but since we are using a formation with one CDM, we had to include Gueye. We also believe that Depay plays better as CAM than Draxler, leaving the most advanced spots for Mbappe and Ben Yedder. However, you can also use Depay as ST and Draxler as CAM. If you often cross to the box, we suggest to replace Yedder by Cavani.

Once all players have reached 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.

MEDIUM BUDGET SQUAD

To cover the needs of as many players as possible, we suggest three squads with different budgets and formations.
Please, keep in mind that we are not saying that these are the best formations for this league. They are only generic formations used in all our squad guides.

The choices for this more affordable team were based on the analysis made in the position guides. To understand why we picked player A instead of player B, please take a look at those guides.

The five players of the defence we used on the unlimited budget squad are cheap enough to repeat their presence on the medium budget squad.

On the midfield, Gueye gives security to the back line, while Verratti and Draxler are responsible to create goal chances. Di María and Bamba, the weakest player of this team, play on the wings from where they try to assist Depay.

LOW BUDGET SQUAD

To cover the needs of as many players as possible, we suggest three squads with different budgets and formations.
Please, keep in mind that we are not saying that these are the best formations for this league. They are only generic formations used in all our squad guides.

The choice for this team’s players was based on the analysis made in the position guides. To understand why we picked player A instead of player B, please take a look at those guides.

Ruffier is our choice for the goal. He is one of the most solid players of this team. Atal, Djiku, Diallo and Marçal complete the defence.

On the midfield, Ander Herrera and Thiago Mendes complement each other well. Bamba on the left and Baldé Diao on the right fill the wings in order to assist Moussa Dembélé and Benedetto. However, if you still have a few coins on your account, you should try to improve this squad with Sarabia and Draxler.
