FIFA 23: Real Madrid Player Ratings

Outsider Gaming takes a look at the best Real Madrid player ratings in FIFA 23.


FIFA 23-Real Madrid

Real Madrid is one of the biggest clubs in the world, with some of the best players around. Riding high from their 14th UEFA Champions League win in May that saw them beat PSG, Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool, it is only right they are ranked high up in some of the best ratings in the last edition of EA’s FIFA series.

Having won 35 La Liga titles so far, they are the only team in the Spanish La Liga with the most league titles in history – their most recent copped in the 2021/2022 season. The predicted “fall” of Los Blancos after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo never happened. Instead, it gave birth to a new crop of stars and the development of already existing ones.


So, what are the Real Madrid Ratings currently? Below we take a look at the top seven players in detail, rounding it up with a table containing all the best Real Madrid players in FIFA 23.

Karim Benzema (91 OVR – 91 POT)

Team: Real Madrid
Best Position: CF
Age: 34
Overall Rating:
91
Weak Foot: Four-Star
Best Attributes: 92 reactions, 92 finishing, 92 positioning

It goes without saying that Karim Benzema is arguably one of the most underrated players over the last decade, though he has started getting his flowers. This reflects in his current FIFA 23 ratings, seeing how it has peaked. Being the best-rated FIFA 23 player with an overall rating of 91 and a 91 potential rating, the French superstar will be pretty chuffed with his numbers.

The talismanic frontman is the true definition of a striker, donning all the exceptional traits in that department. Most especially in shooting, reactions and positioning. With an 88 shooting rating, scoring becomes a walk in the park.


There are other areas where the Frenchman has upped his game. Two key ones being his dribbling, currently pegged at an impressive 87 and his impeccable passing ability placing him head and shoulders above his peers. With an 89 short passing rating, assisting should be a piece of cake.

Having clinched the Ballon d’Or, saying Benzema’s 2021/22 season was fantastic will be an understatement. With successive hat tricks in the UCL knockout stages, there was no stopping the French international last season. The striker was directly involved in 59 goals in 46 matches (44 goals, 15 assists).

Thibaut Courtois (90 OVR – 91 POT)

Team: Real Madrid
Best Position: GK
Age: 30
Overall Rating: 90
Weak Foot: Three-Star
Best Attributes: 89 handling, 90 reflexes, 88 positioning


Thibaut Courtois’ current overall rating of 90 is a slight upgrade from FIFA 22. The Los Blancos shot-stopper remains one of the best-rated goalkeepers not only in La Liga but across Europe and in FIFA 23.

With a handling rating of 89, very few shots will be able to make way past Courtois between the sticks. Topping it off with a 86 positioning rating, conceding goals becomes near impossible. The Beligian’s 88 reflex rating is also remarkable, allowing him to maintain his position as one of the best keepers in the game.

With the man-of-the-match award in the UCL final, there is no denying that Courtois was the best goalkeeper in the 2021/22 season. With 22 clean sheets in 53 matches, it is clear why the former Chelsea goalkeeper is considered as one of the best players in the current Real Madrid ratings.

Toni Kroos (88 OVR – 88 POT)

Team: Real Madrid
Best Position: CDM
Age: 32
Overall Rating: 88
Weak Foot: Five-Star
Best Attributes:
93 short passing, 93 long passing, 90 reactions

Making it at the high pecking order is of the Real Madrid ratings is one of German’s finest, Toni Kroos. The Real Madrid midfield has been one of the most compact over the years and Kroos has been an integral part of it. As a result of his consistency, the German maestro maintains an 88 overall rating and 88 potential rating from the 2022 edition of FIFA.

A 93 rating for both short and long passes is not only impressive, but mind-blowing. This goes to prove the former Bayern München player is a class of his own. Racking up 90 reactions makes it a breeze for the midfielder to make decisive runs and brilliant passes.

Last season, Kroos added a fifth Champions League title to his tally, and he did it in style. The German international was directly involved in 6 goals in 45 games last season. Expectations are high he would maintain that form this new season.

Luka Modrić (88 OVR – 88 POT)

Team: Real Madrid
Best Position: CM
Age: 36
Overall Rating: 88
Weak Foot: Four-Star
Best Attributes: 92 composures, 92 balance, 91 Agility

Asides Messi and Ronaldo, this is the only Ballon d’Or winner in the last decade has managed to prove again that age has nothing on him. The 36-year-old makes his way into this list of Real Madrid ratings with a comfortable overall rating of 88 and a potential rating of 88.

From a character perspective, you can tell that the Croatian captain is composed. The fact that he can easily transcend that to the football field is what makes him special. Spotting a 92 composure rating, mistakes from the midfield will be a rarity.

More impressively, his 93 balance rating is also great if you love a possession-intensive type of play. Even better, his 91 agility rating makes him dangerous going forward. If you love hitting the bins, Luka Modrić is the player for you.

Modrić will be heading into the World Cup with a huge smile, thanks to an amazing 2021/22 season. Given that he is capped with one of the best assists in the UCL, the former Tottenham midfielder had everything to be proud about last season. With 15 goal involvement in 45 matches, you can tell the Croatian general put up quite a show.

Antonio Rüdiger (87 OVR – 88 POT)

Team: Real Madrid
Best Position: CB
Age: 29
Overall Rating: 87
Weak Foot: Three-Star
Best Attributes: 92 Aggression, 90 Strength, 88
Defensive Awareness

Antonio Rüdiger was the biggest steal of the summer transfer window. Getting a defender who is rated 87 in FIFA on a free transfer is a testament to how good Real Madrid can be when it comes to transfer business.

In this era of skilful and fast strikers, a dominant defender with aggression will always be a necessity. Having a 92 aggression rating, Rüdiger gives you just the right amount of force you need in your defence. However, aggression isn’t good enough without strength and Rüdiger has that locked down with a 90 strength rating. In terms of overall quality, the German centre-back is well-rounded and will certainly give you an edge on the defensive side of things.

Before his switch to Madrid this summer, the German superstar had a magnificent season with Chelsea. Considering his impressive nine-goal involvement in 54 matches, the Berlin-born superstar cemented his status as a Chelsea legend.

David Alaba (86 OVR – 86 POT)

Team: Real Madrid
Best Position: CB, LB
Age: 30
Overall Rating: 86
Weak Foot: Four-Star
Best Attributes: 88 Reactions, 87 Interceptions, 89
Defensive Awareness

Making a prominent spot in this Real Madrid ratings is David Alaba and the Austrian earned his way there. Alaba had an iconic season with Real Madrid and an even more iconic “chair celebration” in the Champions League. His performances last season earned him an overall rating of 86 and a similar potential rating.

The Austrian is one of the best defenders to grace the European football scene in the past decade. With a witty sense of play, it is easy to see why he was rated 88 in terms of reactions. Additionally, with his 89 defensive awareness, making interceptions and winning the ball shouldn’t be difficult if you have him on board. Summing it up with 86 interceptions and you have yourself a marvel of a defender.

The former Bayern defensive powerhouse made a switch to Real Madrid in 2021 on a free transfer and proved to be quite pivotal in the Los Blancos’ golden season. Seeing as he was able to record seven-goal involvement in 46 matches in his first season, it can only get better.

Vinícius Jr. (86 OVR – 92 POT)

Team: Real Madrid
Best Position: LW
Age: 22
Overall Rating: 85
Weak Foot: Four-Star
Best Attributes: 95 Sprint speed, 94 Agility, 92 Dribbling

For someone who scored the solitary goal in a tight Champions League final, it would have been a surprise if he didn’t get an upgrade. Getting an 86 overall rating and an even more impressive 92 potential rating, it is only a matter of time before Vinícius Jr completes his football takeover.

The young Brazilian is one of the fastest players in FIFA 23 with a 95 sprint speed rating. The 94 agility rating allows him a lot of body control and ball retention during his speed bursts. Furthermore, add the amazing 92 dribbling ratings and you have yourself the best young prospect in the game. It goes without saying that the dribbling gives the forward that “Brazilian flair” we have learned to love over the years.

After making a €45 million move from Flamengo, the first few seasons at Madrid did not go as well as he would have hoped. However, the tides have gotten better though especially with last season in focus. Considering that he was capped in 52 matches last season, it goes to show how impressive his game has grown to be especially for a 21-year-old.

Conclusively, Vinicius was directly involved in 42 goals in 52 matches last season. That’s no mean feat for a player of his age.
