Best Midfielders in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team
Choosing the right midfielder for your team comes down to what you require from the player. Some players are pretty versatile and can both stop attacks or start them. Others are better at the Destroyer role, stopping the opposition from building too much momentum. The easiest way to go about choosing a midfielder in FIFA 23 is to look not just at their overall rating but also at their important stats. For example, if you need a midfielder that has the vision for a precise through ball, you should opt for a player with a high passing stat. Toni Kroos and Luka Modric are perfect examples of this role. Other midfielders, such as Casemiro, might be more defensive-minded. So, cards such as his will have higher physical and defense stats.
