FIFA 21 Ultimate Team is about defense as much as attack, even if it’s not so fun, and the key to any great defense is goalkeepers. The men between the sticks are the backbone of the team and picking the right player for the position is key in creating a great squad.

FIFA 21 Ultimate Team players love to focus on their attackers. It’s hard to match the satisfaction one feels after scoring a bullet from a fantastic build-up. But it’s a good idea to invest some coins in the defense as well, and it’s especially important to buy a good goalkeeper.

After all, it doesn’t matter how much you score. If you’re conceding goals regularly, you’ll have a harder time winning. To make things easier, we’ve compiled two lists that go over the best meta goalkeepers and a number of budget options for players who are low on coins.

These lists contain no special items and the prices for the players have been recorded from FUTBIN’s database.
