FIFA 20: TOTW 1 Prediction (Ultimate Team of the Week 1) – Mane, Reus, Son & more

FIFA 20 may not arrive for another two weeks, but you can actually start playing FIFA 20 Ultimate Team this week, thanks to EA Access.

The add-on will grant you 10 hours of free gameplay to the
new EA Sports title, giving you a chance to get a headstart online.

Therefore, the first Team of the Week for FIFA 20 will be revealed on Wednesday 18th September, with EA Access commencing on Thursday 19th.

A squad of 23 in-form boosted players will be available, and
you can challenge them on FUT 20 for a coin bonus. Of course, you can hunt for
them in packs from the FUT Store or trade them on the transfer market.

RealSport predicts who could make the starting 11 from this
week’s action.

Maurizio Sarri sat in the Juventus dugout for the first time after missing the first few games of the season with Pneumonia. He didn’t see the Piemonte club take victory however, and had to rely on seven saves from Wojciech Szczesny to hold on to a 0-0 draw with Fiorentina.

Szczesny’s solid display should see his 86 overall rise to 87
on Ultimate Team.

Over in Portugal, Porto had to rely on a late goal from centre
back Ivan Marcano to take all three points against minnows Portimonense. Alex
Telles had been sent off n the 94th minute, but four minutes later Marcano
buried Jesus Corna’s ball into the middle.

The Spaniard’s 79 base card is set to improve to an 82
in-form item.

Nacho Monreal returned to Spain after leaving Arsenal after
seven seasons, and he scored on debut for new club Real Sociedad in a 2-0 win
over league leaders Atletico Madrid. The Basque club are now up to seventh in
La Liga, with two wins in their first four games.

Left back Monreal should see his 79 rating rise to an 81
in-form.

Nicolas Tagliafico is becoming one of the finest left backs
on the planet, and his stock is only going to rise further after netting twice
in Ajax’s 4-1 win over Heerenveen. After some of his teammates made high-profile
moves this summer, expect the Argentine to be among the next to make a big-money
move.

An 82 overall for Tagliafico should rise to 84 on the back of his brace.

Gerard Moreno may have been moved out wide in Villarreal’s
clash at Leganes, but the forward didn’t let that stop him from netting a
brace. It was El Submarino Amarillo’s first victory of the campaign,
bringing them up to tenth in the table.

Moreno’s 81 overall looks likely to improve to an 83 in-form,
with his position moving from ST to RM.

We all knew Frenkie de Jong was a huge talent, but could he
make the step up to Barcelona? Well, the £66 million signing bagged a goal and
assist against Valencia (5-2), justifying the move and his FIFA 20 85 overall.

An 85 overall for the Dutchman should be nudged up to 86 in
Week 1.

Marco Reus just keeps coming up trumps for Borussia Dortmund.
The German international scored twice as BVB saw off Bayer Leverkusen 4-0, taking
his tally to the season to four.

An 88 overall for Reus should rise to an 89 in-form as he
looks to chase down the 11 FUT items he picked up last season.

Sadio Mane looks to be getting better and better in a Liverpool
shirt. The Senegalese international ended last season on 26 goals, and he
already has six in six games this term, netting a brace in the Reds’ 3-1 win
over Newcastle.

An 88 overall for Mane should creep up to an 89 in-form in the first FUT 20 Ultimate Team.

Real Madrid are looking to bounce back after last season’s
problems, and a win over Levante (3-2) has got them back on track this term. A
brace from Karim Benzema as well as their injury problems easing gives Galacticos
fans confidence ahead of their Champions League campaign.

Benzema’s 87 overall should rise to an in-form 88 this week.

climb to fifth in Serie A.
