The 2021/22 season has seen a lot of changes in world football. While some teams have been able to build on their performances from previous years, others have failed to live up to their own expectations.

This was not only reflected by the number of Special Cards received in FIFA 22, but also affects the ratings of the individual clubs in FIFA 23. Who will be the best team in the world in the upcoming game? Who has the strongest midfield? We – here at EarlyGame – predict the player ratings of some of the biggest European football clubs. We've also covered the top 100 players in FIFA 23, but that's another story.

Today it's all about: Champions League winner Real Madrid!

Real Madrid In FIFA 23

In the 21st century, there is not a single football club in the world bigger and more successful than Real Madrid. Many of the current players have already won the Champions League five times – almost all other clubs can only dream of these numbers.

In the 2021/22 season, they've won the prestigious Champions League trophy once more by beating Liverpool 1:0 in the final. For FIFA 23, this means upgrades, upgrades, and even more upgrades... right?

Transfers – OTWs

Real Madrid has already been able to strengthen themselves considerably in the transfer market and that even though the love story with Kylian Mbappé has been pushed back at least a few years. Aurélien Tchouaméni, one of the greatest French talents, was signed as a future midfield maestro, while the free transfer of Antonio Rüdiger should further stabilize their defense next season.

However, Real Madrid is also losing a number of players and, above all, club legends this summer. For Marcelo, Gareth Bale and Isco, the Real Madrid chapter is closed after the 2021/22 season. So, what's needed for the Los Blancos to defend their Champions League title? Do they have to buy a couple more players?

  • Aurélien Tchouaméni (CM) | FIFA 23 Rating: 82 OVR
  • Antonio Rüdiger (CB) | FIFA 23 Rating: 86 OVR

It really was an amazing year for Real Madrid. In LaLiga Santander, FC Barcelona was easily pushed into second place with a staggering 15-point gap – okay, to be honest, the Catalans were horrendous, but still.

In addition, Carlo Ancelotti was able to finish the season in style: They've beat Liverpool in the Champions League final. After Real Madrid had already knocked Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea FC and Manchester City out of the tournament, their win was definitely deserved. We therefor assume that it will be raining upgrades for the majority of their players in FIFA 23.

Karim Benzema In FIFA 23

Karim Benzema has – if you look at the entire 2021/22 season – probably been the best football player in the world. He was a vital part in Real Madrid winning the LaLiga Santander and played a huge role in their incredible Champions League run as well. So it's finally time for Benzema to join the elite circle of 90+ rated players in Ultimate Team. The Frenchman has certainly earned his upgrade for FIFA 23. EA listens and gives him a 91.

Vinicius Jr. In FIFA 23

Anyone who doubles his market value within a year has usually played a pretty decent season. Under Carlo Ancelotti, Vinicius Jr. has developed from a promising talent into one of the best wingers in Europe. Having already received quite a few special cards in FIFA 22, a hefty upgrade probably awaits the Brazilian in the coming year. We expect at least 84.

Aurélien Tchouaméni In FIFA 23

Aurélien Tchouaméni is simply a Future Star. For more than 80 million euros, the young Frenchman transferred from AS Monaco to Real Madrid this summer. Right now, it's still Modric, Kroos and Casemiro... but the midfield of the Los Blancos is more than stacked with Valverde, Camavinga and now also Tchouaméni for the next decade at least.

Prediction: What Real Madrid Could Look Like In FIFA 23

Carlo Ancelotti often used the 4-3-3 formation this past season. While many positions were almost always occupied by the same few players, only a world-class right-winger was missing from time to time. That's why Federico Valverde sometimes had to play there when Rodrygo wasn't available. Will Real Madrid strengthen this position in the summer? Would also make a lot of sense for FIFA 23...
