Full-backs have become a vital part of modern football, and FIFA 23 Ultimate Team reflects that. With this in mind, we’ve put together the best full-backs you should buy in FIFA 23 to take your squad to the next level.
FIFA 23 Ultimate Team is all about crafting the best possible squad full of the biggest names that football has to offer. With modes likes Divison Rivals and FUT Champions set to be more competitive than ever, it’s never been more important to fill your team with quality in every position.
Strikers and midfielders often get the headlines, but an underrated position that players often forget about is full-back. Choosing the right player on either side of the defense opens up plenty of doors tactically, both in attack and defense.
So, with the game just weeks away from release, we’ve put together our predictions for the best full-backs in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team.
Best meta full-backs in FIFA 23
The role of a full-back has changed drastically over the years. In the past, they were pure defenders whose main role was to help the center-backs and keep opposing wingers at bay. Now, left and right backs are expected to push higher up the pitch, whip in crosses, and support the attack.
Depending on your formation you may have different expectations for your full-backs, but, luckily, FIFA 23 has you covered with plenty of great options. While there are some lower-rated players that will be viable in the early weeks, your best bet is to stick to players who have the best overall stats in that position.
