Player of the Month (POTM) awards are back in FIFA 22, giving fans the opportunity to choose which real-life player’s performances deserve a boosted Ultimate Team card. Here are all the nominees and winners for Ligue 1.

A new FIFA Ultimate Team season is upon us, and FIFA 22 players have already been busy taking part in monthly votes to determine which in-form players deserve Player of the Month (POTM) cards in their respective leagues.

POTM cards pack more of a punch than Team of the Week (TOTW) cards, which only provide modest stat improvement. So, as you’d expect, they’re highly sought-after and can be unlocked by completing a squad-building challenge (SBC).


Here’s everything you need to know about the Ligue 1 POTM in FIFA 22, including how to vote, who the nominees and winners are, and more.

  2. Select Ligue 1
  3. Scroll through the candidates and make your choice
  4. Hit vote

Ligue 1 POTM: September nominees & winner

After missing out on September’s award, Lyon midfielder Lucas Paqueta has gotten recognition for his early season effort by winning the Ligue 1 POTM for October.


Two assists across the month, as well as plenty of good set-ups for his side to keep them in the top 5 race has finally given the Brazilian star the nod for a FIFA 22 upgrade.

Paqueta’s October Ligue 1 POTM card is a +5 upgrade on his base card, and also has a big positional swap from CM to ST. He has well-rounded stats, but his 79 Pace (and three-star weak foot) does limit him from being up front — it might be worth swapping him back to more of a CAM or CM position.

With that being said, with 88 Dribbling and 89 Stamina, Paqueta’s POTM card has the right stats in the right places. Paired with a Shadow to maximize his Pace and Defending, he’s a lethal midfielder in any side.


It’s not the cheapest of cards though — it’ll set you back 135,000 to 150,000 coins depending on platform, with three squads of fodder needed to fill it out.

However, you have until December 18 to decide whether you want to pick up the Lyon star.
