FIFA 22 TOTW 13 Prediction: LW Mbappe, Barella & Tielemans

Written by Stakester

The Mbest striker in the game should get a new card, plus an upgrade for Nicolo Barella.

After a disappointing TOTW 12, this week’s team should give you some more motivation to get through a sweaty weekend of FUT Champs. We’ve got three big names from three of Europe’s top leagues, giving you three pretty desirable TOTW items for different budgets. So here are the highlights for our FIFA 22 TOTW 13 Prediction:

Mbappe Concept Card

Top tier: Kylian Mbappé 

The French superstar faced his old club Monaco at the weekend, and combined with Lionel Messi to score the decisive second goal. It’s hard to believe both of them are playing for Paris Saint Germain – it really gives Ligue 1 an Ultimate Team feel.

It would be Mbappe’s second in-form card, so there isn’t a huge amount of room for upgrades – but he would receive that top tier 99 pace stat. There’s a lot of noise about a potential position change; Messi played as a false 9 at the weekend, pushing Mbappe wider. He scored from the left hand side too, curling a shot into the far bottom corner – something we can definitely see him doing for your squad if you’re lucky enough to pack him!

IF Barella Concept Card

Mid/top tier: Nicolo Barella

This Serie A star should receive his second IF card this week – also for a standout performance against his former club – after registering two assists in Inter’s 4-0 win over Cagliari. Barella’s first IF was really strong in the early game, so hopefully this updated version should give Serie A players another chance to use the midfield maestro.

With boosted pace and physicals, Barella should be able to get around the field and cause some real havoc. Decent passing means he can play those crucial balls in the final third, too. If you run a 4-4-2 or 4-2-2-2 and you need a box-to-box midfielder, Barella might just be your guy.

Tielemans Concept Card

On a budget? Youri Tielemans

Leicester got back on track at the weekend, thrashing Newcastle 4-0 at the King Power. Youri Tielemans was central to the win, scoring twice and dominating the middle of the pitch. His IF card won’t be top tier, but with good shooting and passing he offers a decent option if you’re playing on a budget.

It’s his first Team of the Week card, so despite his 86-rated RTTK Europa League item, he’ll still be an 86. We can expect different boosted stats though, so he should feel different to use (and hopefully offer a bit more!) 

Gabriel Concept Card

Gabriel

Arsenal’s Brazilian CB scored and announced that he’s going to be a dad on Saturday – just a normal day at the office then! Arsenal may have started out badly this season, but they are quietly putting together some results and look a much better outfit already.

Let’s be honest, you’re probably going to be an Arsenal fan if you want this guy in your team. He’s a bit slow and those passing stats aren’t too clever, but if you’re building an Arsenal past & present, or just starting out in FUT then he could make a great addition to your squad.

The best of the rest

This week, we’ve got a Manchester United keeper, a penalty expert and a former Manchester City defender. The outfielders aren’t likely to be super usable at the higher end of FIFA 22, but they at least represent some SBC fodder.

  • 86 De Gea
  • 86 Jorginho
  • 85 Angeliño
