The Bundesliga starts once more! We're excited and take a look at the FC Bayern Munich in FIFA 22. Which ratings will the German record champion get?

Julian Nagelsmann is the replacement for Hansi Flick as head coach of FC Bayern Munich. But what does that mean for FIFA? Do players get new positions? Bayern could not only become a real force in Ultimate Team.

Bayern Munich in FIFA 22: What It Could Look Like

After Nagelsmann's signature, many Bundesliga fans congratulated FC Bayern on further championships. We're also taking a look at a possible line-up for FC Bayern Munich in the future.

Nagelsmann is one of the most modern coaches in soccer. He often uses hybrid formations. It depends on whether the team is attacking or defending. So the formation is changed depending on the situation. In the attack, there is a 3-5-2 or 3-6-1 system, which then becomes a 4-4-2 or 5-3-2 in defense. In FIFA 21, the five players at the back were already quite popular and with who else Bayern has to offer, it could be popular in FIFA 22 as well.

It is quite possible that Nagelsmann would like to make another transfer for the right wing. Should Leroy Sané not work on his defensive skills, he could face competition on his position. Benjamin Pavard should rather be played as a right CB, since he is simply too slow as a wing-back.

FIFA 22 Rating Prediction: Bayern Munich

In FIFA 21, FC Bayern was rated rather unfairly. Some FIFA players claimed that this was due to the cooperation between FC Bayern and PES, because otherwise: why should the Champions League winner have been rated so badly? We give a prediction of what the ratings of FC Bayern Munich could look like in FIFA 22.

Manuel Neuer Rating FIFA 22

Manuel Neuer | Rating FIFA 21: 89 OVR | Rating Prediction FIFA 22: 89 OVR

Manuel Neuer had a mixed season. Despite many conceded goals, he could not be blamed for anything in the league. He had many good games, the second leg against Paris in the Champions League was simply world class.

At the European Championship, he wasn't able to shine and was unlucky in the game against Hungary. We therefore expect a strong 89 rating again.

Benjamin Pavard Rating FIFA 22

Benjamin Pavard | Rating FIFA 21: 81 OVR | Rating Prediction FIFA 22: 81 OVR

Bayern's right-back still plays an important role in the squad. Last season was just as mixed as Neuer's. Pavard often did not look good with the many goals he conceded.

Under Didier Deschamps, he was in the starting XI, but could not convince in the dress of the national team. His abilities are still noticeable, so when he gains a little bit of luck back, he also deserves an upgrade. For now, he stays with an 81.

Bouna Sarr Rating FIFA 22

Bouna Sarr | Rating FIFA 21: 77 OVR | Rating Prediction FIFA 22: 74 OVR

From a gold card down to silver! Sarr really did everything to get a downgrade. Sure, he had little playing time, but when he played, he couldn't convince at all. Transfer fail.

It is unlikely that the coming season will be better for him. The greatest hope for him will be that Bayern will not sign any RB and the French will be able to fight his way through.

Niklas Süle Rating FIFA 22

Niklas Süle | Rating FIFA 21: 84 OVR | Rating Prediction 22: 82 OVR

He had an extremely unfortunate season. Injuries threw Süle back again and again. But when he was fit, his performance was unacceptable. He will try everything in the coming season under Nagelsmann to prove himself again. Unfortunately, this year, he gets a downgrade.

Lucas Hernandez Rating FIFA 22

Lucas Hernandez | Rating FIFA 21: 82 OVR | Rating Prediction FIFA 22: 83 OVR

He was definitely the brightest spot in Bayern's defense. He performed well on the left as well as in the center and had the best passing values from the defenders.

Hernandez convinced with fighting spirit, a good build-up game and strong duel behavior. The upgrade is just a logical consequence.

Dayot Upamecano Rating FIFA 22

Dayot Upamecano | Rating FIFA 21: 79 OVR | Rating Prediction FIFA 22: 83 OVR

What a man! Upamecano has more than just stabilized the Leipzig defense. His outstanding duel values and the very strong build-up game convinced Bayern immediately. The speed that the young Frenchman brings to the field is also remarkable.

Bayern fans can really look forward to Upamecano! In FIFA 22, he'll be just as strong as in reality. With an 83, he will be found in many Ultimate teams.

Tanguy Kouassi Rating FIFA 22

Tanguy Kouassi | Rating FIFA 21: 71 OVR | Rating Prediction FIFA 22: 73 OVR

The central defender is slowly establishing himself in the Bayern team and is making further development steps. Will he even be the Boateng replacement? That would be one of many possibilities.

He got his first appearances last season, and we could tell that he's a real talent. In FIFA 22, we expect a slight upgrade to 73. He could be a recommendation for the career mode!

Chris Richards Rating FIFA 22

Chris Richards | Rating FIFA 21: 66 OVR | Rating Prediction FIFA 22: 74 OVR

And there's another central defender for the Bayern. Richards is the next talent which takes big steps in development. At TSG Hoffenheim (on loan), he was able to really improve himself last season. Under Sebastian Hoeneß, he got a lot of playing time.

It is questionable whether the American will stay at Bayern or go on loan again. Maybe he should join Hoffenheim for another season. 74 rating for him in FIFA 22!

Alphonso Davies Rating FIFA 22

Alphonso Davies | Rating FIFA 21: 81 OVR | Rating Prediction FIFA 22: 83 OVR

As strong as Davies is now, he has to at least get an 83. He's one of the best left-backs in the world, which is why we think an 81 rating is simply too low. Even if last season wasn't the best, we say: Give him an upgrade, EA!

Joshua Kimmich Rating FIFA 22

Joshua Kimmich | Rating FIFA 21: 88 OVR | Rating Prediction FIFA 22: 89 OVR

What a leader Kimmich has become! It's actually just a matter of time before he will take over the captain's role. He's an indispensable part of Bayerns midfield and wasn't pushed back by his injury at all.

You remember, don't you? Kimmich was substituted against Leverkusen before Christmas and won the decisive duel - Bayern scored the winning goal and conquered the top of the table. Kimmich delivers every game, an upgrade is a must!

Marc Roca Rating FIFA 22

Marc Roca | Rating FIFA 21: 77 OVR | Rating Prediction FIFA 22: 75 OVR

A disastrous season for him. Until now, it is not clear why Bayern signed him. For the Spaniard, it's also about proving himself in the coming season. Maybe he gets his chance under Nagelsmann.

In FIFA 22, however, he won't make any difference. He can't stand out in the squad with a 75 rating. Maybe a candidate for career mode?

Leon Goretzka Rating FIFA 22

Leon Goretzka | Rating FIFA 21: 84 OVR | Rating Prediction FIFA 22: 86 OVR

Many of the impressions about Kimmich can also be linked with Leon Goretzka. Attitude, mentality and also development at Bayern are improving. Most Bayern fans will probably understand when they read that the contract talks are currently stalling.

Goretzka really deserves an upgrade. We estimate his rating to be 86. In FIFA 22, he will be one of the strongest midfielders due to his complete values.

Marcel Sabitzer Rating FIFA 22

Marcel Sabitzer | Rating FIFA 21: 83 OVR | Rating Prediction FIFA 22: 84 OVR

Bayern fans had to wait a long time for more new transfers, now the time has come: Marcel Sabitzer is moving from RB Leipzig to Bayern Munich. He strengthens the midfield of Julian Nagelsmann and should bring his offensive qualities in the Munich game.

His last season in Leipzig was very convincing. The Austrian was a leader and showed his qualities in front and in the defense. He could be found practically anywhere. That's why we believe that a strong 83 is now followed by an 84 in FIFA 22.

Kingsley Coman Rating FIFA 22

Kingsley Coman | Rating FIFA 21: 84 OVR | Rating Prediction FIFA 22: 86 OVR

In recent years, Coman has become more and more important for Bayern. Should Salihamidžić not manage to extend his contract, it would be a major loss. The Frenchman has become more dangerous, his speed and dribbling strength combined with his assists make him a complete winger.

If he weren't injured as much, he would probably have an 88 rating. He should get an upgrade to 86, his performances were definitely strong enough for that.

Leroy Sané Rating FIFA 22

Leroy Sané | Rating FIFA 21: 85 OVR | Rating Prediction FIFA 22: 84 OVR

What can I say? Last season was just a disaster. Whether in the Bundesliga, the Champions League or the European Championship, Sané's performance was far too weak. Although his scorer points are not that bad, we can't remember a single 1v1 he won. And when it comes to passing and fighting spirit, Sané is surprisingly poor.

The pressure on the winger increases. He has to take action next season, otherwise it will be very uncomfortable. He won't get a strong card in FIFA. Probably a deserved downgrade. We estimate him to be an 84.

Serge Gnabry Rating FIFA 22

Serge Gnabry | Rating FIFA 21: 85 OVR | Rating Prediction FIFA 22: 84 OVR

Gnabry's season wasn't much better than Sané's... surprisingly. But even at the European Championships, he did not show his usual qualities.

Bayern need strong wingers in their system, so it becomes very important that Sané and Gnabry find their way back to their old strengths. Like Sané, Gnabry is downgraded to an 84. The master chef was absent last season.

Thomas Müller Rating FIFA 22

Thomas Müller | Rating FIFA 21: 86 OVR | Rating Prediction FIFA 22: 89 OVR

Where is the big upgrade, EA? After another astonishing season at Bayern, Thomas Müller really deserves an upgrade. We think he could even get a rating of 89! But we all know how this game is played... if you have no exclusive partnership with EA, your players are rated badly. Fingers crossed for Thomas and Bayern.

Jamal Musiala Rating FIFA 22

Jamal Musiala | Rating FIFA 21: not featured | Rating Prediction FIFA 22: 76 OVR

What a huge talent Musiala is, is shown by the fact that he was not even featured in FIFA 21. Last season he was cheeky, fast, technically strong and extremely dangerous at Bayern – one of the rising stars of Germany. We expect a 76, but the trend will go on in the coming years! And it's also a big recommendation for career mode...

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting Rating FIFA 22

Eric Maxim Choupo Moting | Rating FIFA 21: 75 OVR | Rating Prediction FIFA 22: 78 OVR

Who would have expected Choupo-Moting to be such a good transfer. At the beginning, he was underestimated by everyone. Not only were the two PSG games a highlight, he was also always there when Lewandowski needed a break.

Commitment, fighting spirit, body language – the striker impressed at every moment on the pitch. Choupo-Moting will get an upgrade to 78.

Robert Lewandowski Rating FIFA 22

Robert Lewandowski | Rating FIFA 21: 91 OVR | Rating Prediction FIFA 22: 93 OVR

Wow. It's really hard for me to sum up his season in a few words. There is no other way to put it: he's the best striker in the world, if not the best player. I don't think I have to say much about his outstanding performance and the broken Gerd Müller record.

Let's keep this short: Lewandowski should get a 93. After this season, there are no reasons why he shouldn't be the best player of the game. But again... there is the contractual situation with EA. That's why we're really curious to see whether or not EA will be fair and grant him the best rating in the game.

Here are some more predictions for FIFA 22!
