If you’re playing a match of the highest level in FIFA 22, the chances are that you’ll want to deploy a five-star team and all of their world-class players. This way, you can experience the epitome of football simulation gameplay.
In this article, you will find out which five-star teams are the best to play with in FIFA 22, starting with the very best of the bunch before working our way down to other top five-star teams to use.
Paris Saint-Germain (5 stars), Overall: 86
Best Players: Lionel Messi (93 OVR), Kylian Mbappe (91 OVR), Neymar (91 OVR)
Missing out on the Ligue 1 title to underdogs Lille last season seems to have banged the war drums at Paris Saint-Germain as they have been recruiting ferociously throughout the summer. Acquiring the reinforcements of Lionel Messi, Sergio Ramos, Gianluigi Donnarumma, and Georginio Wijnaldum on free transfers, Mauricio Pochettino’s side is looking even stronger this season.
The Parisians and their star-studded lineup are unsurprisingly the best rated team in the game, with arguably the greatest player of all time, Lionel Messi, moving to France to link up with former ‘MSN’ partner Neymar. The front three of Neymar (91 OVR), Mbappe (91 OVR), and Messi (93 OVR) is enough to cause any defender nightmares.
Les Rouge et Bleu also have an incredibly strong defense. With Donnarumma (89 OVR), Ramos (88 OVR), and club captain Marquinhos (87 OVR), it makes you wonder whether there is any hope of beating the French side. Even more impressive are the players on the bench, with stars such as Ángel Di María, Mauro Icardi, and Presnel Kimpembe at your disposal.
Manchester City (5 stars), Overall: 85
Best Players: Kevin De Bruyne (91 OVR), Ederson (89 OVR), Raheem Sterling (88 OVR)
Falling at the final hurdle in last season’s Champions League Final to Premier League rivals Chelsea, Manchester City still managed a successful season, winning the Premier League and the EFL Cup.
The likes of Ruben Dias coming to the club gave the Cityzens a massive boost to their defence, bringing in some much needed tightening up since previous captain Vincent Kompany parted ways with the club.
Despite not having a superstar striker of the same calibre as the rest of the team, players such as Kevin De Bruyne (91 OVR), Raheem Sterling with his blistering 95 acceleration, 94 agility, and 88 sprint speed, and the dominant Brazilian Ederson in goal make up for the lack of a natural striker.
Signing Jack Grealish in the summer has helped to bolster Manchester City’s attack even further, and he will be capable of making an impact either off of the bench or from the first whistle.
Bayern Munich (5 stars), Overall: 84
Best Players: Robert Lewandowski (92 OVR), Manuel Neuer (90 OVR), Joshua Kimmich (89 OVR)
Winning their ninth consecutive Bundesliga title in the 2020/21 season, Bayern Munich also achieved a landmark of 30 league titles in the German top flight. To add to those accolades, they also won the DFL-Supercup, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup in the same season. It’s safe to say that Die Roten will have another successful campaign this year.
Utilising the fast wide players such as Gnabry (85 OVR) and Coman (86 OVR) is crucial to winning games with Bayern. Getting past their man and crossing the ball into either the feet or the head of Polish legend Robert Lewandowski – with his 96 positioning, 95 finishing, and 93 reactions – will result in a goal nine times out of ten.
Being sure to use the club’s incredibly talented midfielders when trying to find openings for others is the key to securing victory in FIFA 22. With the sheer quality in the middle of the park with Kimmich (89 OVR), Goretzka (87 OVR), and club hero Müller (87) being part of the attack, there will be plenty of chances for Lewandowski to finish.
Liverpool (5 stars), Overall: 84
Best Players: Virgil van Dijk (89 OVR), Mohammed Salah (89 OVR), Sadio Mané (89 OVR)
After losing their star defender Virgil van Dijk for most of last season, Liverpool had to adapt a new gung-ho style of play due to their defensive frailties without the Dutch talisman. Even with this massive setback, the Reds managed to finish third in a very competitive Premier League season.
With Mané and Salah, both rated 89 overall, as the main attacking threat, and Roberto Firmino playing as a false nine, the team thrives when going forwards and finding space. Firmino’s ability to beat his man (90 ball control and 89 dribbling) creates havoc for opposing defenders.
Not short of defensive power, Liverpool also have two of the best full-backs on FIFA 22 with Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold both rated 87 overall. When you add in the midfield partners of Thiago (86 OVR) and Fabinho (86 OVR), and the combination of Virgil van Dijk (89 OVR) and goalkeeper Alisson (89 OVR) at the back, you have a recipe for a title-winning team in FIFA 22.
Manchester United (5 stars), Overall: 84
Best Players: Cristiano Ronaldo (91 OVR), Bruno Fernandes (88 OVR), Paul Pogba (87 OVR)
After 12 long years of waiting, the legendary forward Cristiano Ronaldo has made his return to Old Trafford, lining up alongside fellow countryman Bruno Fernandes and former team-mate Raphael Varane – also a new signing for the Red Devils this summer.
Manchester United will be looking to build on their much-improved finish of second place in the Premier League last season. With the pace and dribbling abilities of Jadon Sancho (91 agility, 85 acceleration, 78 sprint speed) and Marcus Rashford (84 agility, 86 acceleration, 93 sprint speed) on the wings, Cristiano Ronaldo will have plenty of opportunities to utilise his 95 jumping, 90 heading accuracy, and 95 finishing.
When you add in the prospect of 88-rated Bruno Fernandes playing the ball either into feet or in behind for the pacey players to latch on to, adding a player with the technical abilities of 87-rated Paul Pogba to the team just doesn’t seem fair on your opponents in FIFA 22.
Real Madrid (5 stars), Overall: 84
Best Players: Karim Benzema (89 OVR), Casemiro (89 OVR), Thibaut Courtois (89 OVR)
Missing out on the La Liga title to bitter rivals Atlético Madrid last season, Real Madrid had a relatively quiet transfer window in the summer. Although the signing of Austrian defender David Alaba (84 OVR) did go slightly unnoticed, the capture of midfielder Eduardo Camavinga (78 OVR) was a great bit of business.
With Gareth Bale (82 OVR) revitalised and back after a season on-loan at Tottenham, it seems that Los Blancos may be getting back into their groove. Eden Hazard (85 OVR) will also be at your disposal down the flank, and youngsters Rodrygo (79 OVR) and Vinicius Jr (80 OVR) will improve as the season goes on, hoping to stake their claim as a first choice on the wing.
Karim Benzema (89 OVR) spearheads the attack and is an excellent target man on FIFA 22, boasting 89 heading accuracy and 90 finishing. Casemiro has seen his overall rating increase to 89 off of the back of a very impressive season. Luka Modrić (87 OVR) and Toni Kroos (88 OVR) also continue to prove their class in the middle of the pitch.
Atlético Madrid (5 stars), Overall: 84
Best Players: Jan Oblak (91 OVR), Luis Suárez (88 OVR), Marcos Llorente (86 OVR)
Winning La Liga last season with Luis Suárez as their top goal scorer will bring a smile to the face of the Atléti fans, and a tear to the faces of the Barcelona fan base after the striker was seemingly forced out of the club. Further strengthening this summer, Antoine Griezmann returns to the club following a spell at the Camp Nou. Known for their ‘never die’ attitude, Diego Simeone has turned Atlético Madrid into title contenders.
Despite Jan Oblak being given a massive 91 rating in FIFA 22, and Atlético’s reputation for being a tough team to break down defensively, this season may feel a lot more attacking when playing with the Colchoneros due to the talents at their disposal. Suárez (88 OVR) and Griezmann (85 OVR) spearhead the attack, while Koke (85 OVR) and Llorente provide different options going forward.
