Who are the best in La Liga in FIFA 17? The biggest surprise is in the first position, although Barça’s trident is the best attack in the game…

Real Madrid and FC Barcelona have 18 of the 20 best players, according to FIFA, in the Spanish league. With nine presences from Real Madrid and eight from Barcelona, ​​the remaining 3 slots are occupied by three footballers from Atlético de Madrid. The best attack in FIFA 17 seems to be for FC Barcelona, ​​since their entire trident easily exceeds 90 PIR, although the best player in the Spanish La Liga is the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo. And it is also striking that only five of the 20 best players in La Liga are Spanish.

The Uruguayan defender, in addition to being the best player in La Liga excluding Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, ​​is the one with the best defensive skills.

7. Luka Modric – Real Madrid

The Welshman is among the best in La Liga in FIFA 17, highlighting above all the ability of Rhythm (PAC in English). This ability measures speed and acceleration, so Bale promises plenty of countering and unchecking.

The Brazilian is very close to Messi in FIFA 17, only weighed down by the physical. And he’s also one of the few 5-star skill move players.

2. Lionel Messi – FC Barcelona

The Argentine from Barça becomes the second best player in the Spanish League, according to FIFA 17. He surpasses Cristiano in dribbling and passing, but loses the duel in everything else. In overall assessment it is only one point apart, but with the importance of qualities such as physique, where there is a difference of almost 20 points, the comparison is going to be more uneven than it seems. That if, as a dribbler, Messi has no rival, although it is surprising that he does not have the 5 stars in skill movements (filigrees).

1. Cristiano Ronaldo – Real Madrid

For the first time in many years, Cristiano Ronaldo surpasses Messi in overall rating. Many already preferred the Portuguese for his physical superiority in previous versions in which he had a lower overall rating. But now it seems that the balance is going to be very much in favor of the Real Madrid striker, who is already the best player (not legend) in FIFA 17. Cristiano is also one of the few players with 5 stars in skill moves.

It is rumored that this year and for the first time, Cristiano surpasses Messi as revenge for EA Sports. FC Barcelona has signed a sponsorship agreement with KONAMI, the creators of PES (Pro Evolution Soccer). As you can imagine, Messi and the rest of the Barça players have ceased to be the covers and image of the EA Sports game. So it is also likely that FC Barcelona in general has been affected against Real Madrid in more details than at the individual level of the players are not appreciated.

In any case, we already know that the ratings are not only important, we have to test the players and see how they adapt to our way of playing. Speed ​​and physicality are very decisive for many players, while for others passing and dribbling prevail. Therefore the best in the league in FIFA 17 is also subject to subjective criteria.
