New Galactico David Alaba confirmed as FUT 22 Ones to Watch star

Hype for FIFA 22 is building by the day, especially with the Beta available now for a select few players.

We have more Ultimate Team news today too, with the first Ones to Watch player confirmed for FIFA 22.

Ones to Watch

Ones to Watch cards have featured in the past couple of Ultimate Team seasons, and they will be the first set of special cards on the new game.

The cards included are selected from the top summer transfers and are given dynamic ratings that increase with every selection in Team of the Week.

MEGA STAR - Messi could be the best OTW player ever

We have seen loads of top-class players on the move this summer, with PSG especially active bringing in Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos among others.

Barcelona new boys Memphis Depay and Sergio Aguero could also feature, but it is another new arrival in La Liga that our focus is on...

CONFIRMED - Alaba will be a FUT 22 Ones to Watch star
"Arguably Europe’s best and most versatile defender, Alaba will be sporting the Galactico’s shirt this season after a summer move to Real Madrid.
"If the Austrian defender takes his impressive form from EURO 2020 into La Liga, it’s likely his OTW FUT card will see upgrades and increased ratings throughout the season."

While we don't know his official ratings, we can certainly speculate!


We would expect Alaba to receive a rating between 83-84 OVR at the beginning of FIFA 22.

His position could be a talking point though. Alaba is mobile and a very popular choice at centre-back, but he is more than capable of playing full-back or in central midfield.

NUMBER ONE - First in the OTW promo is Alaba

It all depends where Real Madrid utilise him over the opening weeks of the season, and we see it at centre-back.

Madrid has lost Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane this summer, so a pairing of Eder Militao and David Alaba seems likely.
