Atletico Madrid’s young star Joao Felix has revealed his own FIFA 20 Ultimate Team starting lineup – showing off his star-studded squad live on YouTube. 

After making waves for Benfica during the 2018/19 season, Joao Felix was the talk of the footballing world – linked with a wide range of clubs in the transfer market. The 20-year-old eventually joined Atletico Madrid for an eye-watering €126 million – the fourth-most expensive fee ever for a player.

Since joining Atleti, the Portuguese has had a fine start to life in the Spanish capital, helping Diego Simeone’s side to sixth place in La Liga and a quarter-finals spot in the Champions League – defeating holders Liverpool in the process. Like many other footballing stars, Felix is a fan of FIFA, occasionally live streaming EA SPORTS’ game on YouTube.

Felix has made further waves since joining Atletico Madrid.

During his March 27 broadcast, the Atletico Madrid star took some time to show off his incredibly high-powered starting lineup that includes legends like Pele, Maradona, Ronaldo, and Maldini. 

Like plenty of other professional stars, the youngster even has his own 99-rated custom card that proves you’re actually playing against Joao Felix – should you have the chance to drop in to a game against him.

Joao Felix’s FIFA 20 Ultimate Team Starting XI

  • GK: Jan Oblak – 92
  • LB: Alex Telles – 89
  • RB: Nelson Semedo – 87
  • CB: Paolo Maldini – 94
  • CB: Eder Militao – 86
  • CM: Juan Roman Riquelme – 92
  • CM: Ruud Gullit – 93
  • CAM: Pele – 98
  • CAM: Joao Felix – 99
  • CAM: Maradona – 97
  • ST: Ronaldo – 96

Unlike some of his other fellow professionals, there aren’t many spots for current day players in Felix’s squad. He has, though, made room for teammate Jan Oblak and fellow Portuguese international Nelson Semedo. 

Some fans might also point to the fact that he could upgrade his team by dropping Militao and Alex Telles, for other icons, but they are still pretty useful cards in their own right.

If you want to win in FUT Champions, you need a good squad, and if you want a good squad, you need these five players.

The weekend’s coming up, which means that FIFA 21 players need to start preparing their squads if they hope to compete in FUT Champions. This week’s Team of the Week (TOTW) includes some great options.

Here are the five best players to get for your squad:

5. TOTW Ederson

If you want a Goalkeeper with great reflexes and kicking, TOTW Ederson is almost a must. Manchester City’s Keeper boasts an impressive 89 Reflexes stat along with an incredible 94 Kicking. This helps him make accurate Goal Kicks that don’t get intercepted.

He’s slightly more agile than the 90-rated Alisson, and a little cheaper too.

4. Kevin De Bruyne

De Bruyne is still a staple for any FUT Champions team. He is the best central midfielder in the game at 91 overall. His passing skills are unrivaled. He has an overall 94 in crossing, 94 in short passing, and 93 in long passing.

This helps De Bruyne find teammates and get the ball to them in great positions to score. It doesn’t hurt that he’s also a great shot himself.

3. Neymar

If you’re playing a formation with wingers, Neymar is your man. His 94 Acceleration, along with his 96 agility and 95 in Dribbling, helps him outrun and get by his opponents.

He has excellent chemistry with Kylian Mbappe (if you have him) as well as other Ligue One Uber Eats or Brazilian players. If you can afford him, he’s well worth the investment.

2. Virgil van Dijk

Van Dijk is the best defender in the game. It’s a lot easier to score in FIFA 21 than it was in 20, and FUT Champions players know how to abuse the mechanics of the game.

This makes having great CBs extremely important, and none do the job better than Van Dijk. Make sure to give him the Shadow Chemistry Style and watch him shut down the opposing strikers.

1. TOTW Rashford

Rashford’s TOTW card is going for over 600,000 on the transfer market, and for good reason. His 92 Pace stat and his 85 Shooting stat make him one of the most lethal strikers on the market. Combine that with his 5-star skill moves and 86 dribbling and he’s an absolute menace.

He pairs great with midfielders like De Bruyne who can get the ball to him while he’s making a run.
