FIFA 20 Ligue 1 TOTSSF Predictions | Team of the Season So Far

The 2019/20 Ligue 1 season may have been officially ended, but with a third of the season still in the books, EA SPORTS have more than enough to pick from for the upcoming Ligue 1 Team of the Season — so who will they choose?

At the moment, all hype in Ultimate Team is geared towards the new Team of the Season So Far format ⁠— the first of which was a fan-voted team. Next came the Premier League squad, complete with Virgil van Dijk, Sergio Aguero, and more.

It stands to reason Ligue 1 wouldn’t be far off, either. Some predictions have put the potential Bundesliga team up next in the order, but others have tipped the French league’s all-star performers to be the next to receive boosts.

FIFA 19's Ligue 1 TOTS -- based on the full 2019/20 season -- was loaded with high-rated stars from the French league.

In the past, EA have had it relatively easy in choosing the season-ending team. Most of their past TOTS releases have been based around lineups chosen by journalists and fans around the world. This year, some seasons still look to continue, and others have been scrapped. 

There is still a clear picture in regards to the best performers in Ligue 1, though, including stars from pacesetters Paris Saint-Germain. The French capital’s deadly strike force of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar Jr, and Angel Di Maria will make it in.

Close behind PSG sit Marseille, Lille, and surprise package Rennes, all of whom boast their own season heroes too. Dimitri Payet, Boubacar Kamara, Hamari Traoré, and Victor Osimhen all have a chance. Here are our predictions.

FIFA 20 Ligue 1 Team of the Season (TOTS) predictions

  • Keylor Navas (95)
  • Juan Bernat (90)
  • Marquinhos (93)
  • Thiago Silva (94)
  • Dimitri Payet ⁠(93)
  • Idrissa Gueye (94)
  • Angel Di Maria (95)
  • Neymar Jr (99)
  • Moussa Dembélé (93)
  • Wissam Ben Yedder (95)
  • Kylian Mbappe (98)
  • Steve Mandanda (90)
  • Hamari Traore (88)
  • Hassane Kamara ⁠(89)
  • Jordan Amavi (90)
  • Téji Savanier ⁠(87)
  • Morgan Sanson (90)
  • Houssem Aouar (93)
  • Islam Slimani (91)
  • Victor Osimhen (92)

There’s a stack of top-class talent lining up in this potential Team of the Season, that is for sure. With regular stars like Thiago Silva and Payet ⁠— as well as FIFA 20’s terror Wissam Ben Yedder ⁠— there’s plenty of representation.

There have also been a few breakout stars etching their names in the history books, too. Lyon’s young striker Moussa Dembélé 16 goals this season, just two off Ben Yedder and Mbappe, while Islam Slimani notched a hefty eight assists.

Veteran shot-stopper Steve Mandanda books his place in our Ligue 1 TOTSSF predictions, with a league-high 12 clean sheets. He may be joined in the defensive picks by other French stars from this season like Jordan Amavi and Houssem Aouar too.

Paris Saint-Germain sensation Kylian Mbappe is a shoe-in for a high-rated TOTSSF card in FIFA 20.

So there you have it ⁠— our predictions for FIFA 20’s 2019/20 Ligue 1 Team of the Season So Far. EA have not released any kind of clear schedule for these teams, so there’s no solid way to know when upgraded cards are coming – or if any of our picks will be included!

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 a brand new Headliners SBC for an 86-rated version of Rangers defender James Tavernier. So, here’s how you can complete the Squad Building Challenge. 

Headliners have been in FIFA Ultimate Team for a few years, and they work in a similar way to One to Watch cards. If a player who has a Headliners card then gets a new special card which is higher rated, the Headliners version is automatically upgraded.

In FIFA 21, there have been two teams of Headliners released so far, with a few Squad Building Challenges – SBCs – thrown in for good measure too.

The newest SBC centers around Rangers right-back James Tavernier. The 29-year-old defender, who has had two in-forms in Ultimate Team already, has been bumped all the way up to an 86. So, here’s how you can get your hands on him.

James Tavernier Headliners SBC in-game stats & requirements

As you can see above, the boosted stats make Tavernier a pretty decent card to pick up, even if you haven’t built an SPFL or Rangers team. He can seamlessly fit into any team with English defenders, or ICONS, of course.

However, as you might expect, he doesn’t come all that cheap. You’ll have to build two teams to get Tavernier – each containing at least one Team of the Week player.

You can find the requirements for both, below:


  • Number of English players: Min 1
  • Number of in-form players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 83
  • Team Chemistry: Min 75

Top Form:

  • Number of in-form players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 85
  • Team Chemistry: Min 65

James Tavernier Headliners SBC cheapest solutions

Speaking of his actual price tag, according to FUTBIN, the total cost for Headliners Tavernier is between 180-190,000 coins, depending on whether you’re on Xbox, PlayStation, or Origin on PC.

However, to try and get you under that somewhat lofty price tag, we’ve got the cheapest solution for each part of the SBC below.

Now, unlike the Player of the Month SBCs like Bruno Fernandes, you won’t have a full month to get the coins and cards needed to get yourself a Tavernier.

The card is only available in Ultimate Team until January 21, so make sure you act fast. And, let us know how you find Tavernier in-game by tweeting us a review over at UltimateTeamUK.
