Who’s excited for Team of the Year?! I am! I have packs coming out of my ears, and thanks to EA’s generous pack blunder, I now have even more chance of bagging one, but for now in FIFA 18 we have yet another Team of the Week. And after the last couple of weeks I must say, this one is lacking. We have a great card in Gareth Bale, who has his first in form of the season, being converted to a Striker. Other than that however, nothing screams out to me. We have Ciro Immobile, who truly deserves this card after netting 4 times in half an hour, and Kalidou Koulibaly who could be a beast. but are these players worth opening packs for and risk missing out on a TOTY next week? I guess that is up to you!Anyway, here are my Key Picks:
Gareth Bale 89 > 90 RW > ST
Real aren’t off to the best start this season, and Bale has not had the career that most expected so far in their colours. However this card is incredible! 96 sprint speed, 93 acceleration, 91 dribbling and 89 finishing. As a striker this card will be outrageous. If you’re lucky enough to have Ronaldo to play on Bale’s left then you will score A LOT of goals. Here’s hoping his recent form will continue and we may get to see even more crazy stats over the latter half of the season.
Kalidou Koulibaly 84 > 86 CB
Serie A seems to be a go to for a lot of players this year, especially when it comes to the Weekend League. I am not looking forward to running into this brick wall of a defender moving forward. His base card is already a beast, but now his 94 strength will batter most strikers in the game. Add to that 90 stand tackle and 89 interceptions and we have a very good defender. And with a respectable 79 sprint speed he is certainly no slouch!
