FIFA 22 is imminent and player ratings are coming out fast!
Real Madrid only topped the table for one match week and ended trophy-less last season, clearly not good enough for a club of their standing.
Here's how their team is looking ahead of FIFA 22's release.
Latest news - Ratings get confirmed
EA announced that ratings were coming, and dropped the best 22 players in FIFA 22!
Benzema, Courtois and Casemiro all made an appearance before the rest of their teammates, so how will the rest turn out?
First OTW confirmed
"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 as we think he will receive an OVR of 84.
Karim Benzema (OVR 89)
Benzema was on fire all of last season, so much so he couldn't be left out of the France squad any longer.
His contribution of 30 goals in all competitions for Real is miles ahead of any other player, the next being on 7.
That wasn't enough to see him reach a 90 OVR rating though.
Casemiro (OVR 89)
A mainstay in the heart of the midfield, Casemiro is no longer the best CDM in the game now that Kante gained a 90 OVR.
His consistent performances and eternal presence saw him keep his high rating, and he could potentially hit a 90 OVR in the future with a few more goal involvements.
Thibaut Courtois (OVR 89)
The giant goalkeeper will once again be one of the best in the game.
Consecutive seasons keeping 21 clean sheets for Real show his worth, but he hasn't been outstanding enough to claim the best keeper in the game outright.
Toni Kroos (OVR 88)
Relied on in the centre of the pitch, the man is still one of the best in midfield. His game has never been about pace, so even though he is ageing we don't expect a drop-off in rating just yet.
At national level, he was going strong too but has since announced his retirement.
Luka Modric (OVR 87)
How much longer can this man keep performing? The joint most appearances outfield for a Real player shows just how crucial he is to the team, and he had a decent campaign for Croatia last season too.
The 35-year-old maintains his high rating for FIFA 22.
Eden Hazard (OVR 85)
An injury-struck season means Real still hasn't seen the best of what Hazard has to offer. Another injury in the Euros won't help either.
Everyone knows how good this guy can be, be he can't keep hold of such a high rating.
David Alaba (OVR 84)
Madrid's biggest catch over the summer transfer window, joining free from Bayern Munich, who sealed another Bundesliga trophy. In that season only Neuer and Muller appeared more for the club, showing what a loss he will be for them, but what a gain for Madrid.
He may get a position change as well, rumours being that he left for Madrid as he wants to play more as a CM.
Carvajal (OVR 85)
A great rating for the right-back, putting him at one of the best in the game.
He only made 13 LaLiga appearances last term but still managed four assists.
Ferland Mendy (OVR 83)
Mendy is taking over well from a position that has been held by Marcelo for so many years now.
Always a handful, his pace makes him tricky to get past and lethal getting forward. Expect this guy to be your go-to LB on Ultimate Team.
Marco Asensio (OVR 83)
Asensio has matured into a great player, with Hazard's injuries letting him get much more game time than many would have expected.
A favourite pick under Zidane, and with real natural ability, can he keep his place under a new manager?
