Team of the Week is back once again in FIFA Ultimate Team, and that it means it’s time for another round of predictions. So, here’s who we’re going for in TOTW 5.
With plenty of games under the belts of teams around the globe, leagues are still to take shape. Some teams are already looking over their shoulder, wary of relegation, while others are hoping to hit the heady heights of being champions.
In the Premier League, Liverpool got back to winning ways despite missing key players, coming back from a 1-0 deficit at home to Sheffield United while Real Madrid and Barcelona played out an electric first El Clasico of the season, with Madrid coming out as the victors.
Elsewhere, PSG trounced Dijon with a 4-0 drubbing in Paris, while Bayern Munich cruised past Frankfurt by a 5-0 scoreline. Players from each of these games feature in our predictions, so lets jump into it.
As for the stand out names this week, we’ve sprung for Robert Lewandowski and Kylian Mbappe. Lewandowski managed to rack up another hat-trick in Bayern’s 5-0 win, while Mbappe chipped in two goals in 20 minutes for PSG.
Aside from them, we’ve also given nods to Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy for his clean sheet and Man of the Match award against Man United, Patrick Bamford for his hat-trick against Aston Villa, as well as Paulinho for his goal and two assists for Guangzhou Evergrande.
There is also a nod for Ajax’s Lassina Traore. The young forward bagged five goals and three assists in Ajax’s 13-0 win over VVV Venlo.
