10 teams we can't wait to use on FIFA 19

FIFA 19 is just around the corner, but football in Europe’s top five leagues has been in full swing since last month – leaving us raring to go with the console classic. Here’s who we’re keen on...

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

Juventus

Juventus have a pretty stacked squad this season, which will likely translate to them being the best team on FIFA 19.

With an attack that features the goalscoring prowess of cover star Cristiano Ronaldo, plus the insane skills of Paulo Dybala, Douglas Costa, Juan Cuadrado and Federico Bernardeschi, there’s a lot of fun to be had with the Bianconeri.

We’ve already had a feel of them in the demo, and Juventus’s attack is as deadly as it looks on paper – especially if you have a penchant for tricks, what with the presence of multiple five-star skillers in the team.

Juve’s midfield and defence are quite solid as well, with Blaise Matuidi, Miralem Pjanic, Giorgio Chiellini and Joao Cancelo among others available for selection.

Crystal Palace

Palace have a strong lineup in this year’s iteration. Wilfried Zaha got handed a much-deserved five-star skill rating along with improved pace, dribbling, shooting and passing stats after his dizzying exploits over the past few seasons in the Premier League.

The Eagles aren’t just Zaha FC on FIFA, though, with the likes of Andros Townsend, Jordan Ayew and Christian Benteke also capable of putting the ball into the back of the net with regularity.

One player we’re keen to use is German playmaker Max Meyer, whose stats make him the perfect CAM to unlock defences with on FIFA.

Real Madrid

No Ronaldo, no party? We beg to differ. Los Blancos were expected to suffer following CR7’s surprise switch to Juventus, but they’ve made a strong start in La Liga this season and remain a powerhouse on FIFA.

Judging by their respective stats, the likes of Gareth Bale, Mariano, Marco Asensio and Karim Benzema offer oodles of creativity and power up front. Alternatively, you could utilise Brazilian sensation Vinicius Junior in place of any of the aforementioned attackers, since he brings plenty of pace and trickery to the table.

Isco, Luka Modric, Casemiro and Toni Kroos offer you control of the middle of the park, while Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane remain one of the best defensive double acts in the game. With 90-rated Thibaut Courtois in goal, meanwhile, opponents will have a hard time finding the back of the net.

PSG

Neymar’s custom rainbow flick is reason alone to get excited about using PSG on FIFA 19. The skill looks as flashy as it does in real life, and when executed perfectly at the edge of the 18-yard area it can open up space for a shot (as well as frustrating your opposition into a controller-throwing frenzy).

PSG are a much better side than they were in FIFA 18, and have a stronger midfield following Adrien Rabiot’s rating boost from 80 to 83.  

Kylian Mbappe also was handed a similar boost by EA plus a five-star skill rating after impressing in the 2018 World Cup, but amid all the rating boosts and new skills, what’s really changed PSG is Gianluigi Buffon’s arrival.

The Italian veteran’s presence in goal is something PSG have missed in previous FIFAs, with the likes of Kevin Trapp and Alphonse Areola often failing to save what many might consider easy shots. As such, this is the best PSG have ever been on FIFA, and we can’t wait to get going with them.

Sevilla

Quincy Promes’s transfer to Sevilla was enough to get the FIFA community talking about what could be one of the most overpowered teams in La Liga this year. The Dutchman – who packs 90 pace, 83 finishing and a five-star skill rating – can be deployed alongside the speedy Luis Muriel and Frenchman Wissam Ben Yedder, the latter of whom boasts a five-star weaker foot that allows him to strike the ball cleanly whichever side he’s on.

Los Rojibancos also have quality midfielders in their ranks such as Franco Vazquez, Argentine mainstay Ever Banega and creative midfielder Pablo Sarabia, all of whom possess passing and dribbling stats rated 80 and above.
