FIFA 20 Weekend League: TOTW 12 Red Player Pick Guide - Van Dijk, Immobile, Dele & more

With Team of the Week 12 released into FIFA 20 Ultimate Team, and another set of Weekend League rewards coming out (Thursday 8am GMT), it’s time to consider who you want to take in your red player picks!

TOTW 12 on the whole looks rather disappointing, with only one standout player in Virgil Van Dijk, who locks up his first In-Form item of the FIFA 20 season!

However, with so many lower tier options, there are some great investments that can be made for the upcoming FUTMAS Promotion.

Top-Tier Selections

These are the top-tier picks from this Team of the Week. If you’re lucky enough to see one of these players, I’d be definitely looking to select them to get them into your squad.

Unfortunately, in TOTW 12, there’s only going to be one card to really look out for in your red picks, the big Dutchman himself, Virgil Van Dijk.


Virgil Van Dijk - 91 OVR

There are no arguments that Virgil Van Dijk is the best defender in world football at the moment, and this carries over to FIFA 20, with him being one of if not THE most dominant CB in the game at the moment.

Being 6’4” with his stocky build in game, coupled with 78 Pace, Van Dijk is a force in the defensive line, and this IF upgrade will only help make him even more dominant.

Upgrades to all of his defensive stats, including +2 Defensive Awareness and Standing Tackling will help him win the ball even more, and +2 upgrades to both Short and Long Passing will help make him even more useful when playing out of the back.

In terms of chemistry styles, I’d seriously consider putting an Engine on him to increase his Pace, Agility, Balance and Passing even more to make him the complete defender.


Mid-Tier Selections

These are the mid-tier picks from this Team of the Week. They’re not the best players you could get, but they’re certainly not bad selections either.

88 Immobile - 88 Rated in a top league makes him a decent card as SBC Fodder. Unfortunately with low Acceleration, Agility and Balance, he doesn’t quite fit the FUT 20 meta.

86 Alli - A great player for sure, however for a top tier meta player, I’d argue there are better options than Dele.

86 Fekir - 86 Rated with a good nation in a top league makes Fekir a great card for SBCs, however at RM he lacks pace to have an impact. I’d look to play him more centrally.

86 Carvajal - 86 Rated Spaniard in La Liga makes Carvajal a great card for SBCs. Unfortunately this year he lacks the pace as a full back to properly challenge the top wingers.

Low-Tier Selections

These are the low-tier picks from this Team of the Week. There’s no pretty way of saying this, consider yourself unlucky if these are the only options you’re receiving.
