Lazio’s Luis Alberto has his FIFA 20 Ultimate Team starting XI revealed

Luis Alberto’s star studded Ultimate Team has been revealed by one of his FIFA 20 opponents, but there’s no place in his lineup for any of his Lazio teammates.Β 

Many pro footballers plying their trade in Italy, and more broadly across the world, will have a lot more time on their hands due to the current global situation – and one past time the former Liverpool man appears to enjoy is FIFA.


Alberto not only boasts his own 99 rated card, which is a telltale sign you’re playing against a pro as EA SPORTS only distribute these to accounts associated with the players, but a number of other major stars of the game made the cut as well.

Lazio’s Stadio Olimpico is on FIFA 20, so maybe Alberto plays at the stadium in Ultimate Team.

The Spaniard had made room for Sergio Ramos at right back, but that card doesn’t play on the same side of the field to Alberto, who is on the left with Alex Sandro’s Player Moments special card (91) sitting behind him in defensive support.


This card can be obtained by completing a promo Squad Building Challenge. For those who would like to complete it, here’s a useful guide on how to do so.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at the team in-full.

Luis Alberto’s FIFA 20 Ultimate Team

  • GK: Thibaut Courtois (90)
  • CB: Paolo Maldini (95)
  • CB: Rafael Varane (89)
  • RB: Sergio Ramos (93)
  • LB: Alex Sandro (91)
  • CDM: Luis Alberto (99)
  • CDM: Lionel Messi (96)
  • CAM: Ronaldo (94)
  • CAM: Ronaldinho (95)
  • CAM: Patrick Vieira (92)
  • ST: Kylian Mbappe (98)

Just played against Luis Alberto πŸ™‚ from FIFA

As the snap above shows, courtesy of Reddit user longusdongus-1102, while Alberto might not have picked any of Lazio’s players, he did opt for one of Serie A’s greatest ever defenders in Paolo Maldini. Not to mention the eye watering forwards in Mbappe, Ronaldinho and Ronaldo (R9).


One thing that’s quite interesting is his position for Messi, who looks to be operating in a defensive midfield position based on the loading screen graphic.

However, we suspect him and Vieira will swap with in-game tactics – a decision that might have been made for chemistry. Either that, or Luis wants to see how the Barcelona legend would operate in a different role altogether.

So, there you have it! That’s what the latest version of Luis Alberto’s team looks like in FIFA and we imagine in the coming weeks, he’ll be spending even more time on the game mode. You never know, you might be the one to face him next.


FIFA 21 TOTW 2 live: Lewandowski, Haaland, Kane, Saint-Maximin, more

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

The full Team of the Week #2 in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team!

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.Β

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!
