Defending was not only hard on FIFA 18, but might be even harder on FIFA 19 Ultimate Team. Expect glitches and other bugs like the kick-off glitch to exist right from the release of game.
To be well prepared we at the start of the new season we made a summary of the best defenders on FIFA 19 Ultimate Team. Keep in mind its not only about the overall rating, but also about the specific stats of the player. Some of them might haver lower ratings, but will be easier to play with and stronger than their actual rating. Also check out or methods on how to get free coins on the game.
- Virgil Van Dijk (FC Liverpool)
For those who want to start a Premier League team should definitely get Van Dijk in their team. He isn’t only fast, but also has great stats on defending and physics. With 1,93m he has the perfect height a defender needs. This makes him not only fast, but also very efficient when it comes to tacklings. He won’t let the strikers run through and has enough agility to outpace even FUT Icons or player like Cristiano Ronaldo.
2. Jerome Boateng (FC Bayern Munich)
Boateng is pretty classy and one of the best german defenders in the game. If you are about to build an Bundesliga team he is a must-have player. Super strong defending stats and decent pace will make him a wall in your defense.
3. Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid CF)
This is not a surprise. He is not only the best defender in La Liga, but in the whole game. Winning one tackling after another and the best part is he is scoring actual goals after corners. He is a real best when it comes to header. Believe me, you want a player like this in your team.
4. Bonucci (AC Milan)
For fans of the Serie A you will have the choice between some fantastic defender, but Bonucci is the best choice for you. Great defending stats paired with a fantastic agility and some decent pass stats will make him the one and only defender you need when it comes to an Italian team. His price is cheaper as usual as he is not playing for Juventus Turin and in the Serie A the prices are lower than usual as well.
5. Rio Ferdinand (FUT Icon)
You must be extremely lucky or very rich if you want to get Rio Ferdinand, but believe me it is absolutely worth it. Not only as he has awesome stats, but you can also use him as a hybrid connected with up to 5 other players (GK, CD, RB/LB, CM, CDM). Have you ever checked the teams of some top player in the Weekend League? All of them got Rio Ferdinand. It has a reason why they pick him – and its worth it.
