Still the Real Deal? Real Madrid's predicted FIFA 22 ratings

With FIFA 22 imminent we're casting our eyes over the teams with player rating predictions.

Last season can't be called successful for a club of Real's standing. They topped the table for one match week only and ended trophy-less. On top of that, club captain Sergio Ramos won't be with them next campaign.

With all this in mind, here's what their team could look like on FIFA 22.

Karim Benzema (OVR 89 → 90)

KARRYING THE TEAM - Benzema scored 30 goals for Real

Benzema has been on fire all 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), and he has been rewarded throughout the season with multiple boosted cards.

We expect to see him get into the 90 club, and it wouldn't surprise us if he even hit 91.

REAL SOLID - Casemiro is the best CDM in the game

A mainstay in the heart of the midfield, Casemiro is probably the best CDM in the world at this moment (now that Kante has moved into a regular CM role).

His consistent performances and eternal presence will see him keep his high rating, potentially even hitting 90 due to a few more goal involvements this season.

BIG PRESENCE - Looking to be one of the best keepers

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 → 88)

KROOS CONTROL - Always dictating play

Relied on in the center 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.

Eden Hazard (OVR 88 → 87)

INJURY HAZARD - We want to see him on the pitch, not the bench

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, and that may help him keep hold of a high rating. We expect a drop off from his rating on FIFA 21, which could take even more of a hit if EA isn't in a generous mood.

Raphael Varane (OVR 86 → 87)

VARANE THE MAN - Will he stay loyal to Real though?

Next season he will have big boots to fill with Ramos leaving. He has deputized extraordinarily well with Ramos out injured for most of the season, and seems more confident taking charge of the defence.

The big question is whether he will be at the club next season or not, with transfer speculation surrounding him constantly.

Luka Modric (OVR 87 → 86)

STILL LOOKING GOOD - Modric will be 36 next season

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's had a decent campaign for Croatia this season too.

We expect a drop in rating because of his age, the 35-year-old's legs aren't what they used to be.

David Alaba (OVR 84 → 85)

MOVING FORWARD - Will Alaba see his position changed to a CM?

Madrid's biggest catch so far this 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, rumors being that he left for Madrid as he wants to play more as a CM.

Ferland Mendy (OVR 83 → 85)

BETTER BROTHER - Ferland is performing much better than his brother Benjamin

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 a nice rating increase and for this guy to be your go-to LB on Ultimate Team.

Marco Asensio (OVR 82 → 85)

ASCENDING THE RATINGS - Could Marco get a big boost this season?

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, we expect a deservedly big boost on FIFA 22.
