How to choose the Best Defenders

 

In this article we will suggest the best defenders for FIFA 18 Career Mode that you should be able to use in your club. Keep in mind that the best players for us may not be for you. It depends on your club, other players, formation, transfer budget, wages budget, play style, preferences, etc…

To select the best players, we have mainly into consideration their stats, potential and age. TThat’s why a few old players are not in this list. Someone who will not be playing for more than two seasons in our club is not such a good buy as someone who will play for five or six seasons.

 

In our website we suggest defenders of three categories:

✔️ Best of the Best
Ideal for unlimited wallets or for who wants the best.

 
✔️ Best Deals
Decent defenders that you can find at good prices or be ending their contracts.
 
✔️ Best Young
Under 23 defenders with great growth. Potential future top players.

Varane must be the first buy in any major club. As simple as that. He is already one of the best defenders but the most impressive is his potential.

AYMERIC LAPORTE
Nationality: France 🇫🇷
Club (first season): Athletic Bilbao
Rating: 84
Potential (1): 89
Age: 23

Another young French centre back playing in Spain. We suggested you to buy Varane as soon as possible. However, buying Laporte is also crucial, especially while he is playing for a less popular club.

SERGIO RAMOS
Nationality: Spain 🇪🇸
Club (first season): Real Madrid
Rating: 90
Potential (1): 90
Age: 30

If you are playing with Real Madrid, then you just need to keep your centre backs because you already have the best of the best. Sergio Ramos is a beast. He is one of the fastest and also scores a lot of goals. Who doesn’t want a player like him? Chiellini, Godin and Thiago Silva were were not included in this top because they are too old but Sergio Ramos is young enough to play a few seasons more.

BEST CHOICE

CARVAJAL
Nationality: Spain 🇪🇸
Club (first season): Real Madrid
Rating: 84
Potential (1): 87
Age: 25

Carvajal is strong, fast, defends well and he’s only 25 years old. If you want the best right back, you need to sign him.

NELSON SEMEDO
Nationality: Portugal 🇵🇹
Club (first season): FC Barcelona
Rating: 81
Potential (1): 87
Age: 23

If Barcelona paid €30 million for a right back, that’s because it’s a very good player. Yes, Nelson Semedo is great in real life and one of the best in this game. It won’t be easy to convince Barcelona to sell him.

HECTOR BELLERÍN
Nationality: Spain 🇪🇸
Club (first season): Arsenal
Rating: 81
Potential (1): 88
Age: 22

Bellerín is the right back with the highest potential, which should mean something. He’s only 22 but already a great buy for any club. If you love pace, you found the player you will want for your club.

JOSHUA KIMMICH
Nationality: Germany 🇩🇪
Club (first season): FC Bayern
Rating: 81
Potential (1): 87
Age: 22

Kimmich isn’t fast but a great defender. He only needs one chance to proof how good he is. Who knows if it won’t be him to ‘replace’ Lahm?

SERGE AURIER
Nationality: Ivory Coast 🇨🇮
Club (first season): Paris Saint-Germain
Rating: 81
Potential (1): 85
Age: 24

It is very difficult to find a top-quality player like Aurier. He simply can’t play bad. His potential in FIFA 18 is much lower than it was in FIFA 17 but he still is a good addition to your club.

BEST CHOICE

DAVID ALABA
Nationality: Austria 🇦🇹
Club (first season): FC Bayern
Rating: 86
Potential (1): 88
Age: 25

This is probably the easiest choice we have made in our guides. Alaba will be the best player in his position until he retires, which will take more than 10 years to happen.

ALEX SANDRO
Nationality: Brazil 🇧🇷
Club (first season): Juventus
Rating: 86
Potential (1): 88
Age: 26

It is not normal to see so many young full backs with high potential. Alex Sandro is just one of the best examples. With him in your team you don’t need anyone else. Hype!

MARCELO
Nationality: Brazil 🇧🇷
Club (first season): Juventus
Rating: 87
Potential (1): 87
Age: 29

We suggested you Alaba and Alex Sandro but, if you want the best player possible to play now, Marcelo is who you need. He will not improve his skills much more and he won’t play 10 more seasons, but at least you will have the best left back in the world.
