Life as a fullback is about so much more than defending in modern football – those who play there must have supreme athleticism as they are required to both attack and defend in kind, which means a hell of a lot of running.
Tackling, dribbling, crossing, and even shooting skills are all a necessity for a top right back. Luckily, RealSport is here to help you find the right man.
How to choose the best right backs (RB & RWB) for FIFA 20 career mode
Here we are looking at the best right backs (RBs & RWBs) with a rating of at least 78 and a potential of at least 82. As we’ve mentioned, right backs require a high level of skill to perform for top teams, so be ready to part with some serious cash to secure these defenders’ signatures.
For a full list of ALL the best right backs (RB & RWB) on Career Mode, look at the table at the end of this page.
Joshua Kimmich (OVR 86 – POT 89)

Career Mode value: £43.2 million (Release Clause: £74.5 million)

It’s fair to say that Kimmich has never been better than he is now – the German man has now amassed almost 200 appearances for Bayern and has been elected as Club Captain this season, at just 24 years of age.
Kimmich’s in-game stats suit the modern attacking fullback down to a tee – his 85 ball control and 86 aggression means he is unlikely to be dispossessed, whilst his 87 short passing and incredible 91 crossing demonstrate his attacking capabilities.
Dani Carvajal (OVR 85 – POT 86)
Club: Real Madrid
Best stats: 90 stamina, 85 sliding tackle, 84 aggression

His strongest stats may have a focus on defending, with 83 defensive awareness and 84 aggression, but his 83 sprint speed, 84 crossing and 84 ball control show that he is just as capable in attack as defence.
Joao Cancelo (OVR 84 – POT 89)
Club: Manchester City

Career Mode value: £32.9 million (Release Clause: £63.2 million)

Again, Cancelo has fantastic attacking attributes with 86 crossing and 85 dribbling. His defensive stats are decent enough (79 defensive awareness and 80 standing tackle), but if you sign him on Career mode, his tackling and positioning are areas to work on.
Kyle Walker (OVR 84 – POT 84)
Club: Manchester City

Career Mode value: £23 million (Release Clause: £42.5 million)

Despite being nearly 30 years old, the Englishman’s physical attributes are superb, as he possesses 89 stamina and 94 sprint speed. Walker’s 84 standing tackles and 81 crossing means he can both defend and attack alike.
Cesar Azpilicueta (OVR 84 – POT 84)

The Spaniard possesses very strong defensive stats of 85 defensive awareness, 87 standing tackles and 86 sliding tackles. His only let down as a fullback is his 68 sprint speed - if you sign him, you may want to consider playing him as a CB.
Trent Alexander-Arnold (OVR 83 – POT 89)
Best stats: 90 crossing, 83 standing tackle, 82 ball control
Career Mode value: £28.8 million (Release Clause: £59 million)

Ricardo Pereira came in to the Leicester side in the summer of 2018 and has been integral to the club’s current surge in form as they sit at second in the Premier League.
In FIFA 20, the Portuguese defender is a bit of a speed merchant (86 sprint speed, 85 acceleration) and will dispossess most attackers he comes up against with his 84 standing tackles. For his price, he is a no-brainer on Ultimate Team.
Nelson Semedo (OVR 82 – POT 87)
Best stats: 92 sprint speed, 91 stamina, 87 agility
Career Mode value: £23.4 million (Release Clause: £49.7 million)
Wage: £135,000 a week

Barcelona paid over £35 million for Semedo when he was just 22 years of age, demonstrating just how exciting a prospect the young Portuguese fullback is.
Semedo’s standout FIFA 20 stats are his physical attributes as his 91 stamina and 92 sprint speed reveal that he is well equipped to dominate the right side of the pitch. With 87 potential, he can become a vital player in your Career Mode squad.
Thomas Meunier (OVR 82 – POT 82)
Position(s): RB, RM
Best stats: 92 stamina, 85 strength, 83 standing tackle

He may not be the fastest right back on FIFA 20, but with 85 strength and 83 standing tackles, he’s unlikely to lose many 50/50 tussles. The Belgian defender makes for a relatively affordable squad player on both Career Mode and Ultimate Team.
Sergi Roberto (OVR 82 – POT 83)
Position(s): RB, CM, RM
Best stats: 89 stamina, 84 short passing, 83 crossing
Value: £19.8 million (Release Clause: £42.1 million)
Wage: £140,000 a week

Sergio Roberto has proven a reliable servant to the Catalonian team over his years of service and can interchange between right back and central midfield.
To be honest, the Spaniard’s been a bit hard done by on FIFA 20, as his real life performances have been of better quality than his 82 in-game rating. However, his 84 short passing and 83 vision reveals that he can do a fantastic job a as a ball playing defender in your squad.
