The 2019/20 season may be suspended around the world, but with more than a third of the campaign in the books, EA SPORTS have more than enough to pick from for the upcoming Bundesliga Team of the Season ⁠— but who will they choose?

In years past, the FIFA developers have had it relatively easy. Most of their end-of-year TOTS releases are based around real-life lineups chosen by journalists and fans around the world. This year, however, the season may not be over.

With uncertainty swirling around the top leagues, and when they return, it’s likely EA will still stick to the usual annual schedule. Last year, the squad came out in late May. This time, all signs point to the same drop date as well – with details on TOTS packs having seemingly been leaked. 

Lewandowski has made seven Bundesliga TOTS in a row -- can he make it eight?

The current Bundesliga season may not have been entirely played out yet, but there have still been standout players across the board. After languishing in the top eight for much of their campaign, Bayern Munich has surged into first.

Dortmund, Leipzig, and Mönchengladbach are close behind, and with them has come a host of heroes. From breakout stars Erling Braut Håland and Timo Werner, to strike stalwart Robert Lewandowski, there’s plenty of picks here’s ours.

FIFA 20 Bundesliga Team of the Season (TOTS) predictions

  • Yann Sommer (94)
  • Achraf Hakimi (92)
  • Dayot Upamecano (94)
  • Joshua Kimmich (96)
  • Kai Havertz (94)
  • Marco Reus (98)
  • Serge Gnabry (96)
  • Erling Braut Håland (97)
  • Jadon Sancho (96)
  • Timo Werner (97)
  • Robert Lewandowski (98)
  • Péter Gulácsi (92)
  • Christian Günter (91)
  • Christopher Nkunku (89)
  • Alphonso Davies (91)
  • Marcel Sabitzer (91)
  • Filip Kostić (92)
  • Thomas Muller (93)
  • Robin Quaison (93)
  • Thorgan Hazard (94)
Marco Reus has overcome extended injuries to return to his dominant best in 2019/20 with Dortmund.

There’s plenty of stars in the 20-player TOTS we have went with, that’s for sure. As well as expected top-class picks like Dortmund hero Reus, and joint assist leaders Sancho and Muller, there’s plenty of representation across the board.

Leipzig defensive duo Upamecano and Gulácsi both slot into the back-side of the team, while on-loan Hakimi has earned his place with 10 assists for Dortmund in 46 appearances this season.

Quaison has also shone for Mainz. The Rhineland-Palatinate squad has struggled to stay out of the relegation zone for much of 2019/20. Their Swedish striker has played a big role in keeping them out with 12 goals, though.

Schalke 04 also notably finds no luck in our predicted Team of the Season. The blue-washed Rhine-Westphalia club sits in sixth ⁠— 14 points behind arch-rivals Dortmund ⁠— but have again had no stand-outs. Last year they also had zero.

Håland is a strong shoe-in for a Bundesliga TOTS card after scoring nine in eight for Dortmund after swapping from Salzburg mid-season.

So there you have it ⁠— our predictions for FIFA 20’s upcoming 2019/20 Bundesliga Team of the Season. Keep in mind, considering everything going on with global sport at the moment, these may come a little later than usual.

This is just who we believe gets the tip for a spot in the illustrious end-of-year stat-hiking lineup. Think we missed someone big, or have slotted a player too high in the rankings? Let us know at @UltimateTeamUK on Twitter.

EA SPORTS have released the second batch of Team of the Week players in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and it looks like there are some exciting cards up for grabs this week.

Following the completion of another busy game week across football’s top-flight leagues, a new set of TOTW players has been released, featuring some huge names and valuable cards.

Dexerto made a number of predictions earlier in the week, included at the bottom of this article, so let’s see how they stacked up with leaks and ultimately, the official team as well.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2

Just as with the first Team of the Week, the second TOTW squad is stacked with top talent, such as the likes of Lewandowski, Courtois, Kane, and Haaland. While not as high-rated as those studs, the likes of Milan’s Hernandez and Newcastle’s Saint-Maximin should also draw a lot of attention as being “meta” players.

Here are some of the players you might be interested in:

  • Erling Haaland (86)
  • Robert Lewandowski (92)
  • Harry Kane (89)
  • Thibaut Courtois (90)
  • Ben Chilwell (84)
  • Theo Hernandez (83)
  • Jack Grealish (83)
  • Ollie Watkins (81)
  • Allan Saint-Maximin (83)
  • Renato Sanchez (82)
  • Marcel Halstenberg (84)

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2 leaked

Ahead of EA SPORTS confirming the full TOTW #2, the full squad was claimed to have been leaked – and the leaker even managed to get his hands on the same image that EA would end up tweeting out.

When did TOTW 2 go live in FIFA 21?

EA SPORTS revealed this next FIFA Team of the Week squad at 6PM (UK time) Wednesday, October 7, 2020. As per usual, they were announced and droped into packs at 6pm BST / 12pm CT / 1pm EST / 3am AEST.

These boosted player upgrades are now being announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21, unlike other years where we knew about them three hours prior.

FIFA 20 Team of the Week 32 predictions

What a week! Competitions around the world have come back for the 2020/21 season, soon after the end of last year’s staggering campaign. The back-to-back nature of these seasons, it seems, is going to lead to some exciting games.

The biggest news from the Premier League this week was Aston Villa and Tottenham each dolling out huge defeats for Liverpool and Manchester United respectively. Ollie Watkins scored three and assisted one as he led the Villans to a 7–2 victory over the champions, while Heung Min Son was unplayable against United.

There were a number of other standout performances across the weekend too. Neymar Jr. was at his electric best against Angers, while FIFA 21 cover star Erling Haaland kept up his goalscoring record in a 4–0 win over Freiburg on Saturday.

Here are our TOTW 2 predictions, so let’s see how many we got right this week!
