LATEST - Great Eight

With the official ratings now coming in, we have eight stats confirmed for Barcelona.

Robert Lewandowski (91 OVR) and Pedri (85 OVR) have been joined by Marc-Andre ter Stegen (88 OVR), Frenkie de Jong (87 OVR), Sergio Busquets (85 OVR), Jordi Alba (85 OVR), Memphis Depay (85 OVR) and Jules Kounde (84 OVR), who all make the Top 25 La Liga players.

These match the leaked ratings supplied after Xbox One users gained full access to the upcoming game for a limited time thanks to a typical EA blunder.

Although some of the players that are yet to be announced could still change before full release, the ratings for Barca players were as follows:

  • Lewandowski (91 OVR)
  • ter Stegen (88 OVR)
  • de Jong (87 OVR)
  • Busquets (85 OVR)
  • Jordi Alba (85 OVR)
  • Pedri (85 OVR)
  • Depay (85 OVR)
  • Kounde (84 OVR)
  • Kessie (84 OVR)
  • Pique (83 OVR)
  • Dembele (83 OVR)
  • Raphinha (83 OVR)
  • Araujo (83 OVR)
  • Torres (82 OVR)
  • Christensen (82 OVR)
  • Dest (77 OVR)
  • Inaki Pena (72 OVR)

Top Players

It was a trophyless season for Barcelona in 21/22, although their league form in 2022 did mean they finished 2nd in La Liga.

In what will go down as a fairly disappointing campaign, Barca's late form should see several young stars earn upgrades in FIFA 23.

Robert Lewandowski (OVR 91)

TOP TARGET - Lewandowski is a mighty signing for Barca

Despite being in financial dire straits, Barcelona is still making plenty of moves in the transfer market, with one of the world's best coming over from Bayern Munich to the Catalan club.

Robert Lewandowski had another phenomenal campaign but has seen his rating drop from 92 OVR to 91 OVR for reasons we don't understand.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen (OVR 88)

SAFE HANDS - ter Stegen will still be top-class despite a downgrade

German goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen was one of FIFA 22's top goalkeepers, but he has got a downgrade this time.

Barcelona's number one was rated 88 OVR in FIFA 22's latest squad update, and that is how he will start life in FIFA 23.

Frenkie de Jong (OVR 87)

ALL ACTION - de Jong's pace and technical ability makes him a FUT favourite

Dutch midfielder Frenkie de Jong was strongly linked with a move away, but while he remains a Barca player he will keep his 87 OVR.

The 25-year-old boasts all the attributes of a quality box-to-box midfielder and should be hugely popular early on in the FUT 23 cycle.


Barca's financial woes have been well-documented, so it is surprising to see them splashing the cash this summer.

It's been risky business, making sure they balance the books by offloading many players.

FAN FAVOURITE - Kounde will be a very popular FUT card

  • Robert Lewandowski (91 OVR)
  • Jules Kounde (84 OVR)

  • Raphinha (83 OVR)

While none of Barcelona's more experienced stars look set for an upgrade next season, their youngsters do, including a massive one for teenage sensation Pedri.

FUTURE STAR - Pedri is set to be a Career Mode sensation with a massive potential

22-year-old centre-back Ronald Araujo is also leaked to be in line for a big upgrade in FIFA 23.


After a turbulent season, it will be no surprise to see some of Barca's older stars taking a hit to their FIFA 23 rating.
