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)
Position(s): RB, CDM, CM
Club: Bayern Munich
Best stats: 94 stamina, 91 crossing, 87 short passing
Career Mode value: £43.2 million (Release Clause: £74.5 million)
Wage: £113,000 a week
FUT Price: 12k PS4 / 13k Xbox One
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
Career Mode value: £34.2 million (Release Clause: £72.7 million)
Wage: £185,000 a week
FUT Price: 10.75k PS4 / 11k Xbox One
Carvajal is a product of the Real Madrid youth system – at 27 years old, the defender is approaching/in his prime, so it’s no surprise he ranks so high in the top ten right back.
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
Best stats: 92 stamina, 90 sprint speed, 86 crossing
Career Mode value: £32.9 million (Release Clause: £63.2 million)
Wage: £135,000 a week
FUT Price: 29.5k PS4 / 29k Xbox One
Joao Cancelo has now made 11 appearances for Guardiola’s squad and surely there are many more to come.
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
Best stats: 94 sprint speed, 89 stamina, 86 shot power
Career Mode value: £23 million (Release Clause: £42.5 million)
Wage: £149,000 a week
FUT Price: 64k PS4 / 55.5k Xbox One
Kyle Walker is now in his third season with Man City and has won two Premier League medals, one FA Cup and two League Cups with the team – you could say he’s had a reasonably successful tenure in Manchester…

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)
Position(s): RB, CB
Best stats: 87 standing tackle, 86 sliding tackle, 86 interceptions
Career Mode value: £23 million (Release Clause: £43.6 million)
Wage: £131,000 a week
FUT Price: 9.6k PS4 / 13.5k Xbox One
Although Azpilicueta’s primary FIFA 20 position is right back, the Chelsea Captain has covered all manner of areas, including centre back, left back and even midfield.
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.
