All Ultimate Team players are looking for the best players in each position. Today, we're going to show you which central defenders are the strongest in FIFA 22. To do this, we divided the whole selection into three price categories, so that there really is something for everyone.
Note: This is about the best in-game, i.e. meta-players. We already did the highest-rated CBs.
FIFA 22 FUT: Meta Center Backs
The best central defender you can get in Ultimate Team is Maldini. But since very few of you are likely to have a cool 2 million lying around in your club, we're going to show you alternatives that are not as expensive as Maldini, but who are also OP - at least for their price range.
In the higher price range, we have Rio Ferdinand. The Englishman was by far the best defender in the game in FIFA 20. This year, he will shine again as a meta card. So if you have 500k (Mid Icon) - 700k (Baby) over, you should get the legend. Otherwise, the next best alternative is Varane (300k).
Among the averagely priced players, it's Marquinhos from Paris Saint-Germain who we think is the meta CB. 81 pace and 89 DEF make the Brazilian indispensable. In terms of price, he's an outstanding solution: you should be able to find 80k easily if you gamble regularly and take out good SBCs.
Who do we have in the cheapest class for you? St Juste. And yes, he might not be the best of the bunch, but what else can you do when money is tight? For 2-3k, you can't go wrong. So treat yourself to St. Juste and maybe there's something left over for Lacroix as a second CB...
