FIFA 18 ratings: 5 players who have been grossly underrated
FIFA 18 is almost here and before we dive into the dynamics of the game following its monumental release on 29th September, it is imperative to note that EA Sports has officially released the ratings of the top 100 footballers in the game this year.
There are some notable inclusions in the list, starting from the mid-80s and ending at an impressive 94 for Cristiano Ronaldo who yet again pipped Messi to the game's top spot. But what is also to be given due attention is the fact that there are several players who perhaps should have been rated higher this year but could not quite make the cut. Among these players are some big names that will certainly raise eyebrows around the world and their FIFA 18 rating does them no justice at all.
EA Sports obviously find it hard to accommodate every talented player among the top brass, but looking at the names on this list, fans will be left scratching their heads especially when Ultimate Team starts in full swing. These FUT ratings prove that it isn't easy to make it to the elite in FIFA 18:

#5 Douglas Costa - 82
Douglas Costa was once considered as the protege to Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery at Bayern Munich. While much was expected from the Brazilian, his Bayern career did not take off as many thought it would but the talent was there for all to see. Following several substitute appearances and lack of playing time, his move to Juventus seemed logical.
However, FIFA 18 rates him just 82 this year with his pace of 92 being the only driving force for the skillful winger. His 5-star skill moves are overshadowed by mediocre passing and average shooting. Certainly an underrated player!
