FIFA 22 will be released on October 1, and much like the fans, we're beginning to speculate about the new ratings. In our FIFA 22 Rating series, we will gradually introduce you to the possible strengths of the top teams. Who's improving? Who's getting worse? In this article, we'll make predictions for the FC Barcelona players in FIFA 22.

Every year the same exciting question arises: Since Messi will not extend his contract and leave Barcelona we're in pain. Barca without Messi. No one can imagine.

For obvious reasons, people want to know about the strength one of the most popular clubs in FIFA. Indeed, as Barca famously boast, they're More than a Club, and they've been especially energized by the charisma of Lionel Messi in recent years. Probably the best player we've ever seen in the sport.

After they finishd 3rd and Messi left, the new season can be a disaster. How strong will Barca get to be FIFA 22? We'll show you the ratings of the most important players.

Griezmann, Agüero, And Co. - How Will They Be Rated In FIFA 22?

Ok, so how is our prediction made? Well, we follow the players and teams within the FIFA ecosystem, but we also follow the teams in real life and FIFA will reliably come to a consensus between both.


We'll show you the current overall rating and the possible new one and briefly describe why we believe that players will improve, worsen or stay the same. Let's go!

Marc-Andre ter Stegen Rating FIFA 22

Marc-Andre ter Stegen | FIFA 21: 90 OVR | Predicted Rating FIFA 22: 90 OVR

In our opinion, the German goalkeeper remains as highly rated as he was last season. Barca conceded too many goals this season - but this was not due to the goalkeeper.

Frenkie de Jong Rating FIFA 22

Frenkie de Jong | FIFA 21: 85 OVR | Predicted Rating FIFA 22: 88 OVR

The central midfielder made strong appearances at Barca. He also played convincingly in the EUROs, although the Dutch were taken out of it surprisingly early. We think he will increase his potential to 92 for Career Mode.

Sergio Agüero Rating FIFA 22

Sergio Agüero | FIFA 21: 89 OVR | Predicted Rating FIFA 22: 86 OVR

The striker has definitely become less relevant (if that's not too mean to say), and his 33 years are worrying us. That said, there's no question that he can still help Barca on the pitch.

Sergio Busquets Rating FIFA 22

Sergio Busquets | FIFA 21: 87 OVR | Predicted Rating FIFA 22: 86 OVR

In the Spanish national team, Busquets is the solid cleaner. That's how we know him. But lose a point of strength anyway because his performance in the Barca kit was less impressive. He's also 32 years old, and not getting any younger...

Antoine Griezmann Rating FIFA 22

Antoine Griezmann | FIFA 21: 87 OVR | Predicted Rating FIFA 22: 86 OVR

So far, you still don't have the feeling that Griezi has really arrived at Barca. After Messi is gone, maybe he will step up. In any case, we believe his OVR will suffer as a result of the performance.

Jordi Alba Rating FIFA 22

Jordi Alba | FIFA 21: 86 OVR | Predicted Rating FIFA 22: 85 OVR

The left-back is a real institution with the Catalans, and for good reason. However, his downgrade is also age-related (32 years).

Memphis Depay Rating FIFA 22

Memphis Depay | FIFA 21: 85 OVR | Predicted Rating FIFA 22: 85 OVR

Really strong free transfer for Barca. After his failure at Manchester United, the Dutchman picked up speed at Olympique Lyon and has now arrived in Spain. However, we still don't think he will improve in FIFA 22. To do this, he must first deliver in LaLiga.

Gerard Pique Rating FIFA 22

Gerard Pique | FIFA 21: 86 OVR | Predicted Rating FIFA 22: 85 OVR

Even the old warrior from central defense gets a downgrade from us. On the one hand because of his 34 years of age, on the other hand because he was mostly injured last season.

Philippe Coutinho Rating FIFA 22

Philippe Coutinho | FIFA 21: 83 OVR | Predicted Rating FIFA 22: 82 OVR

Do you remember how sick the Brazilian was at Liverpool? Yes, we miss it too. We can only wish him a good coming season.

Ousmane Dembélé Rating FIFA 22

Ousmane Dembélé | FIFA 21: 83 OVR | Predicted Rating FIFA 22: 83 OVR

If you judge Dembele only on the basis of his performance in the past season, he should actually have lost one strength point. But anyone who has seen the French play knows about his talent.

Clement Lenglet Rating FIFA 22

Clement Lenglet | FIFA 21: 85 OVR | Predicted Rating FIFA 22: 85 OVR

Although he was the most reliable center-back for Blaugrana last season, we don't think he can improve. At the age of 26, however, he has not yet reached the limit, let's see what he can do.

Samuel Umtiti Rating FIFA 22

Samuel Umtiti | FIFA 21: 83 OVR | Predicted Rating FIFA 22: 81 OVR

Ouch, the 2018 world champion has not even been in the France squad recently, and his market value is only 8 million euros ... so yeah....we think he'll get a decent downgrade in FIFA 22.

Sergi Roberto Rating FIFA 22

Sergi Roberto | FIFA 21: 83 OVR | Predicted Rating FIFA 22: 83 OVR

Although the full-back was mostly out and missed the European Championship, we assume that he will not be downgraded. His stats are just too solid when he's at full strength. An upgrade is certainly not an option, though.

Miralem Pjanic Rating FIFA 22

Miralem Pjanic | FIFA 21: 85 OVR | Predicted Rating FIFA 22: 83 OVR

Whaaaat? The swap with Arthur was bad deal for Barca? Hard to believe. Well, actually, everyone knew. That only came about anyway because both Juve and the Catalans had to improve their numbers. And Pjanic did not make it to regular strength last season. In FIFA 22 he will probably be downgraded.

Ansu Fati Rating FIFA 22

Ansu Fati | FIFA 21: 76 OVR | Predicted Rating FIFA 22: 77 OVR

Giving a prediction for Fati is really difficult. He's still a long way from exhausting his potential. However, the 18-year-old was out with an injury for most of the season. But he's getting the upgrade because he scored four goals and one assist in seven league games and shone with one goal and three assists in three Champions League appearances.

Pedri Rating FIFA 22

Pedri | FIFA 21: 77 OVR | Predicted Rating FIFA 22: 80 OVR

The 18-year-old celebrated terrific performances at the European Championships for Spain. And his market value is now 80 million euros! We believe that he will definitely get a big upgrade in FIFA 22 and will reach the 80s mark.
