FIFA 17 Ultimate Team: Best Teams

Knowing the best teams to play with makes for a great gaming experience. And when it comes to FIFA 17, finding out what they are can very well help you get the winning edge.

If you’re still unsure of what team to play for, here’s a list of the best teams in FIFA 17 for you to choose from. Here you’ll also find out the best players that place each team at the top.

Take a look:

Atletico Madrid

A Spanish professional football club, Atletico Madrid is a Champion’s League runner-up. Not the best team at the moment, but there are lots of potential. So if you’re playing in this team in FIFA 17, you’ll want to have a few overpowered superstars to be competitive and beat the other teams. You may want to try Alessio Cerci and Nicolás Gaitan. But to make your team a real winner, you’ll want Yannick Carrasco, Antoine Griezmann and Fernando Torres on your side. Torres and the speedy Kévin Gameiro can help the defence. And you can complete the backline with Diego Godín, David Luiz, Juanfran and José María Giménez.

PSG (Paris Saint-German)

Paris Saint-German, or popularly known as PSG, may seem like a less competent team compared to others. But don’t let it deter you. It can still be one of the powerhouse squads in the latest installment of FIFA. Edinson Cavani is good to lead the line and with Jesé Rodríguez as a capable understudy to fill in on the wings, you’ll get a promising start. Put Ben Arfa in the starting line-up and watch as his awesome footwork stuns the opposing team. You can take advantage of his great skills and affinity for long shots. Then add in Ángel Di María and you’ll get a A++ team.

Manchester United

Manchester United may be deemed as an overrated team by some. But no doubt they know how to step to the penaty spot. With Eric Bailly, Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, United can very well be a force to be reckoned with. Bailly is one fast player, and together with Smalling they make a very fast team. The two of them can easily deal with the usual jet-heeled forwards playing in the opposing team. On the other hand, Ibrahimovic can be a monster on the pitch and may very well change the way you build your attacks, with Anthony Martial being a viable option to team up with him. And thanks to David De Gea, who was hailed as one of the best goalkeepers in the world, United was able to last the season last year in the BPL. So with all these players in place, United is no doubt a team to look out for.


Chelsea had a good record in the past installments, including the last FIFA 16. With Michy Batshuayi, N’Golo Kanté and David Luiz just being added to the team, FIFA 17 may even be a better season for Chelsea. While it seems that Luiz has already lost his edge, but he’s still a good defender, and partnered with Kurt Zouma, they have a shot against opposing forwards defined by their pace. It also doesn’t hurt that Chelsea has great wingers like Willian Borges da Silva, Eden Hazard and Pedro Rodriguez. And with strikers like Diego Costa, Loïc Rémy – and the addition of Batshuayi – the squad definitely has athletic aerial presence in place.


Players like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Marco Reus, with their blistering pace and prowess, no doubt make Dortmund a team to beat in FIFA 17. Mario Götze is known to create space and thread through-balls. Then add in the promising Ousmane Dembélé and André Schürrle to the mix, and you get a potent attacking force in this FIFA installment. No doubt you can count on Aubameyang, Schurrle and Reus to create consistent attacks and deadly counters without any additional support on the break, considering Aubameyang is one of the fastest players in the game. With these players in Dortmund’s roster, opposing teams surely have their work cut out for them.

Manchester City

Manchester City just added Kevin De Bruyne to an already stacked line-up, which only makes them the fifth best team in the game. De Bruyne and İlkay Gündoğan make for a superb partnership in midfield, with the former also having the skills to act as a second striker. He can smoothly play alongside Sergio Agüero. These players are definitely putting competition for City. And if City’s real-life form carries on, you will likely get noteworthy live update stat boosts for these players.


This Italian team is definitely the top four in this list. Juventus boasts of having high IQ players that can make moves and create depth. With the introduction of Dani Alves, Miralem Pjanić and Gonzalo Higuaín – plus the second year on loan for Juan Cuadrado – the squad has successfully made up for the loss of notable players such as Pogba, Morata and Zaza. The departure, fortunately, still left the team enough flexibility when it comes to formation. What’s more, the power of the engine room behind Paulo Dybala and Higuaín up front should lead to plenty of chances of winning.

Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich is one of the top FIFA 17 teams. But to make them nab the best spot, you’ll have to come up with a great strategy and set them up with a formation that suits them. This way, they’ll be able to go toe-to-toe with Real Madrid. New signing Mats Hummels sure offers a promising start, giving a solid foundation of the best back line. What’s more, the raw stats of Renato Sanches prove that his combative and excellent playing style is the right fit for the squad.

Real Madrid

No doubt the second spot is reserved for Real Madrid. One of the elite teams to use in FIFA 17, this squad is filled with world class players all over the pitch, not to mention the fact that they have the highest rated player in the game as their captain. None other than Cristiano Ronaldo of course. Since Real has a lot of powerhouse players, it’s a very popular team to use in FIFA. With this squad, you can use the pace of Ronaldo and Gareth Bale plus the all-around skills of Karim Benzema. These players will give you an effective three-man attack and you’ll get the best out of their star-studded line-up.


Real Madrid may boast of having the highest rated player but Barcelona is by far the best team in FIFA 17. Like Real, it boasts of having the best players in the world: Lionel Messi, Neymar Jr., and Luis Suárez. Which is probably why their attacking prowess is unmatched by any other team in the game. With Samuel Umtiti being newly added into the back line, it will strengthen the side in all the right ways. The quality of their front three is also irrefutable – nabbing the second, third and fourth most highly-rated players in the game. So who wouldn’t want to play in this squad?

Our final thoughts

Having the best team on your side is important. And now you probably know which to choose. Maybe you’ll get the highly promising Bayern or either the powerhouse squads of Real or Barcelona? Well, whatever the case, it’s best that you know what strategy and formation to use. Because no matter how popular or great your choice is, it’s useless if you don’t know how to properly utilize them.
