For a long time, there was a battle for the title of best football game’, with EA Sport’s FIFA franchise and Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer wanting to become the title of choice for fans. But things have progressed, it’s definitely the FIFA franchise that has won out to become one of the most loved games. Alongside the likes of Grand Theft Auto’s online mode and Fortnite, FIFA ranks as one of the most trusted games for online play.

Recently, of course, there was the release of the latest game in the franchise. FIFA 22 has been well received but like with any representation of sport in digital form, the iterative changes can make the gameplay experience different. We all have our own favorite teams, not always the ones which we support, but those which just click with our style of play. Then next year, you head back to them and it just feels different. So, we take a look at some of the teams to choose in FIFA 22 to help you get the most wins, and more importantly have the most fun playing with, too,

Napoli

For players of the Ultimate Team mode on the game FIFA 22, they’ll be well aware of the abilities of Lorenzo Insigne and Dries Mertens. The pair form a deadly partnership worthy of any team. But this year, the sum of those two along with their colleagues in the Gli Azzuri, make a tough side to beat. The strength of the defensive pair of Konstantino Manolas and Kalidou Koulibaly almost typify the stereotypical Italian defense-first, style of football. But the pace of Insigne and Mertens is the perfect opposing force to that solidity at the back. It’s so easy to go from defense to attack with devastating effect

Bayern Munich

With FIFA 22 each annual update of the game, there’s always a player that stands out in a team and just makes things tick. Most of the time, you’d head to the icon on the game case. Whilst Kylian Mbappe is this year’s cover star, the one who’s making real noise in this year’s game is Polish striker, Robert Lewandowski. He’s deadly in front of goal this season, more than ever in fact. Then add Leroy Sane and Kingsley Coman out wide, the defensive nous of Joshua Kimmich in front of Manuel Neuer in goal. It’s almost a dream team. As of this writing, the football odds at Ladbrokes have Bayern as 4/1 second favorites to win the Champions League, which speaks to just how interesting this club has been of late in real life. This is over our next team, who are chockfull of world superstars.

Paris St Germain

Kylian Mbappe as we said is the cover star this year and his character in the game is one potent attacking weapon. His pace and power are the perfect foil for the one who many see as the best player ever, Lionel Messi. Oh and Neymar Jr., Gianluigi Donnarumma, Marco Veratti, we don’t need to go on. They are statistically the best team on the game, but in reality, they aren’t the favorites for the Champions League, according to the latest odds, lagging just behind Bayern as the third choice. But with these players in their armory, it’s almost impossible to think they won’t be right up there. And that’s why they are also a definite fun choice for players of FIFA 22.

Borussia Dortmund

Dortmund has been a solid choice for players over the past few years, they’re like the old dependable favorites. The parts change, but the sum of those always seems to come up with the goods. Erling Haugland, who has started this season in the Bundesliga in devastating form is just as good in the game The guile of Marco Reus in midfield, and the evergreen Mats Hummels at the back give players a solid spine. Which is perfect to build your winning team around
