BE CREATIVE: Use directed runs in FIFA 21 to take control of the runs your teammates make

FIFA 22 will likely be released between Friday, 24 September and Friday, 8 October, 2021, judging by the release in previous years.

Kick-off & Seasons

Whether you are playing locally against your friends or online, there are some teams that you should look to use.

Best

PSG - Our favourite from FIFA 21. With the likes of Neymar, Angel Di Maria, and Kylian Mbappe up top, PSG are always an attacking threat.

DEADLY DUO - Mbappe and Neymar are two of FIFA's best forwards

Presnel Kimpembe and Marquinhos are two mobile centre-backs, and the addition of Georginio Wijnaldum adds some much-needed mobility into central midfield.

Bayern Munich - Strong defensively, Bayern Munich's right-back is a problem area on FIFA 21 as Benjamin Pavard is not the quickest.

Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich are a top-class midfield pairing, while Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sane, and Kingsley Coman provide the pace around leading marksman Robert Lewandowski.

Liverpool - Despite a disappointing season by their lofty standards, Liverpool will still be a force in FIFA 22.

SQUAD GOALS - Liverpool's team is filled with international stars

Joe Gomez is a FIFA beast, van Dijk is one of the best defenders around, and Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are two of the best wingers in the game.

Avoid

Real Madrid - Hear us out. Eden Hazard is not the force he once was, their midfield is ageing (and slowing down) and Sergio Ramos is on his way out.

Ferland Mendy and Raphael Varane are two of the best in Ultimate Team, but aside from them, Real Madrid doesn't have enough players that fit the meta!

Career Mode

Whether you like re-building a squad or bringing through young talent, these teams are ideal for FIFA 22 Career Mode.

Best

Real Madrid - Yes, they are on this list twice. Their squad is well-suited to Career Mode with a great blend of star-quality and young talent.

PRODIGY - Rodrygo is one of the world's most promising young players

The likes of Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo will become world-class players, and there are plenty of other youngsters to nurture too.

Manchester City - Pep Guardiola has assembled an incredible squad filled with incredible players.

Not only will you have a sizeable war chest to work with, but there are also plenty of young guns with huge potential.

Inter - The Serie A champions boast a terrific squad with several players boasting a potential of 87+ or higher in FIFA 21.

CHAMPIONS - Can you help Inter retain their crown

Their transfer business will be key as they look set to lose a couple of players including Achraf Hakimi, so watch this space.

Avoid

Napoli - There are some classy players in the Napoli squad, however with just two players under the age of 23 they need an injection of youth.

Taking over the Napoli job will require a major overhaul, so if that is what you are looking for then they could be the team for you. However, for us they are one to avoid.
