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.

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 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!
