In this article we’ll be looking at the best 4.5-star teams to use on FIFA 22. Beginning with an in-depth look at the top seven teams, information will be provided on how they’re doing in real life alongside analysis on some of the best players on the teams.
There are 21 4.5-star teams on FIFA 22 and we’ve got them all listed here.
Tottenham Hotspur (4.5 Stars), Overall: 82
Best Players: Harry Kane (OVR 90), Heung Min Son (OVR 89), Hugo Lloris (OVR 87)
The hot topic for Spurs this summer was whether star forward Harry Kane would stay or leave. In the end, he opted to stay for at least another season, though his departure seems to be very much still on the cards at some point.
Tottenham finished seventh last season, their worst ranking since the 2008/2009 season. It means that this season they’ll be playing in the newly formed Europa Conference rather than the Champions League or Europa League like they’re used to.
Spurs’ attacking prowess make them a constant threat on FIFA 22, with Harry Kane, Heung Min Son, and either Lucas Moura or Steven Bergwijn all providing dangerous options up front. The physicality of Højbjerg in the middle of the park also allows Dele Alli to bound forward and join the attack.
Harry Kane’s 90 rating is the best in the team, and is closely followed by Heung Min Son’s 89 rating. Hugo Lloris is a great last line of defence with an 87 rating, while HØjbjerg follows with 83.
Inter (4.5 Stars), Overall: 82
Best Players: Samir Handanovič (OVR 86), Milan Škriniar (OVR 86), Stefan de Vrij (OVR 85)
Inter Milan won their first Serie A title for eleven years last season, with an impressive 12 points separating them from second-placed AC Milan. The attacking duo of Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez scored 49 goals between them last season, but with Lukaku moving to Chelsea, Inter will need to find goals elsewhere moving forward.
Milan were shrewd in their transfers this summer, bringing in players with known experience in Serie A such as Joaquín Correa, Hakan Çalhanoglu, and Edin Džeko. They also strengthened at centre back by signing Zinho Vanhuesden, and did likewise on the right-hand side with Denzel Dumfries.
The Italian side is well-balanced in ability and age; they have a number of talented young players such as Allesandro Bastoni and Nicolò Barella, but also have plenty of experience in the form of Arturo Vidal, Džeko, and goalkeeper Samir Handanovič.
Martinez is the big threat up top, partnered with the experienced Džeko, with these two rated 85 and 83 respectively. The three centre backs, Stefan de Vrij (85), Milan Škriniar (86), and the younger, 80-rated Bastoni make for a solid back line with both height and defensive ability.
Sevilla (4.5 Stars), Overall: 82
Best Players: Alejandro Gómez (OVR 85), Jesús Navas (OVR 84), Marcos Acuña (OVR 84)
Sevilla struggled to make a Champions League run last season, losing to Borussia Dortmund in the last 16 after finishing fourth in La Liga. The four-time Europa League winners have started well this season, however, remaining unbeaten through their first handful of games.
Sevilla have spent money in all areas of the pitch over the summer. Centre forward Rafa Mir and right winger Erik Lamela have been brought in to strengthen the attack, while Thomas Delaney will help out in the midfield and full backs Gonzalo Montiel and Ludwig Augustinsson reinforce the defence.
Sevilla are solid defensively with the 84-rated Jesús Navas and Marcos Acuña as full backs. New signing Alejandro Gómez provides creativity in the midfield, and is well-supported by 24-year-old, 82-rated striker Ahmed Yasser En-Nesyri.
Borussia Dortmund (4.5 Stars), Overall: 81
Best Players: Erling Haaland (OVR 88), Mats Hummels (OVR 86), Marco Reus (OVR 85)
Borussia Dortmund haven’t won the Bundesliga in nine years, though the eight-time German champions have continued to win in the German Cup, lifting that trophy three times in ten years. What was once a two-horse race in the German division has become much more of a level playing field in recent years, as other teams such as RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt continue to improve.
Dortmund brought in centre forward Donyell Malen from PSV over the summer for £27 million. They will be hoping that the frontman can continue the form he showed in the Eredivisie, where he scored 19 goals in 32 games. Could he also be the replacement for Erling Haaland should he move on next summer?
Haaland, who has an overall rating of 88, is the standout star and the player around which the team is organised. Alongside him is Marco Reus, a player with an 85 rating and who provides great attacking support for Haaland. Defensively, centre back Mats Hummels and left back Raphaël Guerreiro form the base of a solid back half, with those players rated 86 and 84 respectively.
RB Leipzig (4.5 Stars), Overall: 80
Best Players: Petér Gulásci (OVR 85), André Silva (OVR 84), Angeliño (OVR 83)
Leipzig’s unique transfer policy and financial investment has allowed them to propel themselves up the football league in Germany since the club was founded in 2009. They were promoted to the Bundesliga for the first time in 2016 and found themselves in second by the end of that season.
The high turnover of players allows Leipzig to spend most summers. This summer, centre back duo Dayot Upamecano and Ibrahima Konaté left for a combined £74.25 million.
Consequently, Leipzig were able to bring in fellow Bundesliga forward André Silva, Angeliño, Joško Gvardiol, and Ilaix Moriba, all for less than the fee the two prior players went for.
New signing Silva leads the way for RB Leipzig with an 84 rating, and is ably supported by 82-rated Dani Olmo and 81-rated Emil Forsberg. Angeliño could be a wildcard player with the ability to play almost anywhere on the pitch courtesy of his balanced ratings. The left back is almost as efficient as a winger or a defensive midfielder, depending on how you want to play.
Villareal CF (4.5 Stars), Overall: 80
Best Players: Parejo (OVR 86), Gerard Moreno (OVR 86), Sergio Asenjo (OVR 83)
Winners of the 2020/2021 Europa League, Villareal lifted their first major piece of silverware this summer following a penalty shootout win against Manchester United. The Spanish team have never finished higher than second in La Liga, which they achieved in the 2007/08 season when they fell short of Real Madrid.
Villareal have strengthened their forward line this summer with the purchase of left winger Arnaut Danjuma and centre forward Boulaye Dia. They also signed centre back Juan Foyth from Spurs.
Villareal’s standout stars are Dani Parejo, an 86-rated central midfielder, and striker Gerard Moreno, who is also rated 86 overall.
These are the two players to base your game around when playing with Villareal. The Spanish duo are the two best attacking options on the team, though Paco Alcácer can pop up with a goal with 85 finishing. The four-four-two formation Villareal play with requires a patient build up, as they lack the speed to score on the counter-attack.
Leicester City (4.5 Stars), Overall: 80
Best Players: Jamie Vardy (OVR 86), Kasper Schmeichel (OVR 85), Wilfred Ndidi (OVR 85)
Leicester City shocked everyone in 2016 by winning the Premier League, the first such title in the club’s history. The trio of N’golo Kanté, Riyad Mahrez, and Jamie Vardy propelled the Foxes to that historic win, but of that group, only Vardy remains.
Since then, Leicester City haven’t been able to crack the top four, having finished fifth in the previous two seasons.
The three big money signings for Leicester this summer were centre forward Patson Daka for £27 million, defensive midfielder Boubakary Soumaré for £18 million, and centre back Jannik Vestergaard for £15.84 million.
Leicester City play four at the back, with two holding midfielders in the 85-rated Wilfred Ndidi and 84-rated Youri Tielemans. Vardy leads the line with an 86 rating, while James Maddison tucks in behind with an 82 rating. The speed of recent acquisition Daka, who boasts 94 sprint speed and 92 acceleration, could be valuable from the bench.
