ANALYST

FC Barcelona is a popular choice in FIFA 22, with over a century of history and a massive fan base worldwide. They retain their 5-star rating in FIFA 22, with an 84 rated midfield. However, with the departure of Messi and due to the damages inflicted by the club’s management’s predecessors, the team continues to struggle.

A trio comprising of Pedri (81) and Frenkie De Jong (87) supported by Sergio Busquets (86) is the highlight of the squad in Messi’s absence.

There are only five teams in FIFA 22 Career Mode with a higher midfield rating than FC Barcelona, as shown in the list below.

Premier League runners-up Manchester United share their midfield ratings with Barcelona in FIFA 22. However, the presence of Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba in midfield, paired up with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho, will be a treat for any football enthusiast. Fred is the balancing piece for the team on defence, and the presence of Scott McTominay and Donny van de Beek on the bench gives players more options to experiment with the team.


4) Chelsea FC

Players: N'golo Kante (90), Jorginho (85)

Midfield rating: 85

Chelsea FC enjoyed Champions League success in 2021, after which they added Romelu Lukaku and Saul Niguez to their roster. The experienced pair of Kante and Jorginho has proved essential to the team’s success in the past. With the addition of Saul to the bench along with Kovacic and with the availability of Mount (83) and Havertz (84) as CAMs, players have more flexibility with adjusting formations with this squad in FIFA 22.


3) FC Bayern Munich

Players: Joshua Kimmich (89), Leon Goretzka (87), Thomas Muller (87)

Midfield rating: 85

This prolific midfield trio of Bayern Munich features members from the German Football Team and long-time teammates. The highly adaptive midfield is one of the driving forces behind the goal-scoring spree of Robert Lewandowski and syncs well with the fast wingers - Sane and Gnabry. Tolisso and the new addition of Sabitzer also prove essential to the team in FIFA 22.


2) Manchester City FC

Players: Kevin De Bruyne (91), Rodri (86), IIkay Gundogan (85)
