FIFA Mobile 22: Reviewing the La Liga TOTS Players

Choose only from the best players!

Team of the Season is finally here in FIFA Mobile 22. One of the most popular events in the FIFA Mobile calendar recognizes the best performers from each league season. This year, we have an event packed with challenges, rewards, and of course, brand new cards. With so much choice available, picking the best option takes a bit of thinking. We’re here with the TOTS Player reviews, where we look at each of the FIFA Mobile 22 TOTS starters from the major leagues, with this time being La Liga, analyzing their playstyles, and detailing their pros and cons.

The fourth league of the FIFA Mobile 22 TOTS event is the La Liga. A selection of players was selected from the top flight of Spanish football, and with a community vote, a squad was chosen. The league’s top 2 sides, Real Madrid and Barcelona took the spotlight, contributing 8 out of 11 starters, whilst Sevilla, Real Betis, and Athletic Club took the remaining slots.

All those calculations. All that time. All that effort. It all comes down to this. Choose wisely!

FIFA Mobile 22 La Liga TOTS Players

Ronald Araujo (CB)

FIFARenderZ Ronald Araujo
  • Overall: 94
  • Requirement: 28000 TOTS Community Points
  • Skill Boost: Tackling

Overview

Araujo broke through as one of Barcelona‘s important CBs having impressed new manager, Xavi. At 23 years of age, Araujo is still fairly young for a player in his position, yet has still shown maturity in his play. The Uruguayan made 30 league appearances last season, keeping 6 clean sheets and scoring 4 goals.

VSA

Araujo is a tall and strong defender who fairs decently in this mode. He is a persistent marker with quick reactions, and he moves quite fast around the pitch as well. However, Araujo seems more like a passive defender, rather than an aggressive one; he doesn’t really put pressure on attackers, and instead just bolds his position.

A disadvantage of this is that it gives more time for other players to make runs, or for a shooting chance to open up. Ideally, Araujo should be partnered with an aggressive CB to complement his passive nature.

H2H

Particularly due to the high pace, this is an all-around solid center-back for H2H. Araujo is quick to catch up with attackers, meaning he is fine in a back-four but can also operate on the sides of a back-three. In addition, this card also has good standing tackles and sliding tackles. On the flip side, the lack of aggression can be frustrating at times. Araujo has good strength, but he doesn’t use it to shake attackers, and this often results in the more agile dribblers slipping past quite easily.

Pedri (CM)

FIFARenderZ Pedri
  • Overall: 94
  • Requirement: 28000 TOTS Community Points
  • Skill Boost: Vision

Overview

After a Golden Boy winning season prior, Pedri suffered a bit of a setback in the 21/22 season. A hamstring injury meant that he could make just 21 appearances for his club all campaign. Nonetheless, Barcelona’s creative youngster put on some quality performances and tallied 4 goals and 1 assist. Pedri is certainly one to watch for the coming years.

VSA

As an attacking-minded CM, Pedri contributes to often to chances in VSA. His shooting isn’t all that special, though that is fair enough since his strengths lie elsewhere. In general, Pedri feels smooth on the ball and is a very fluid player all-round. He isn’t ideal for what VSA demands, but he does the job.

H2H

This is a great option for the Number 8 role, due to its smooth dribbling and accurate passing – both short and long. TOTS Pedri is a fantastic playmaker and can carry the ball well too. His small build and lack of strength will be a slight issue when out of possession, so it is important to have some defensive support behind this card. Other than that, this is a very solid addition to the team.

Iker Muniain (LM)

FIFARenderZ Iker Muniain
  • Overall: 95
  • Requirement: 42000 TOTS Community Points
  • Skill Boost: Long Shots

Overview

Muniain enjoyed a successful individual season with the Spanish outlet, Athletic Bilbao. He tallied 4 goals and 10 assists in 35 league appearances. Only two other players could beat Muniain’s assists total. The 29-year-old was introduced to football by none other than Athletic Bilbao’s youth academy and has now had an impressive 13 seasons in the senior squad

VSA

TOTS Muniain is a decent card for VSA, though perhaps not best for value. Muniain is a fluid dribbler with a great burst of speed. His shots are also quite good, particularly outside the box. However, the 3* weak foot is a bit of a let-down.

Considering that is one of the more important attributes of a wide player in this mode. All things considered, this card does the job and is quite fun to use in that regard, although for the price required, there may be much more appealing options for VSA.

H2H

Because of his quality dribbling and playmaking ability, Muniain performs much better in H2H than in VSA. His control over the ball in tight spaces and that burst of speed allow him to move into dangerous attacking positions. Since Muniain possesses a good long shot and an eye for a killer pass, he is a reliable card to use throughout an attack. One thing of note though, is that Muniain may be outpaced in long-distance runs. For those that play a counter-attacking style in H2H, this card is not ideal. Muniain functions more like a wide playmaker, floating around the box and creating chances, and possibly taking long-range shots.

Eder Militao (CB)

FIFARenderZ Eder Militao
  • Overall: 95
  • Requirement: 42000 TOTS Community Points
  • Skill Boost: Marking

Overview

Militao made 50 appearances in all competitions for Real Madrid last season, keeping 17 clean sheets. He helped his side to an impressive 3 trophies – the Supercopa, the La Liga, and the UCL. At 24 years old, Militao is still young for a defender and will be looking to add more titles to his name in the coming years.

VSA

TOTS Militao is a perfect defender for VSA, because of his completeness. He has all the minerals to succeed in this mode – pace, quick reactions, and great strength. Militao can tackle the ball cleanly and his positional awareness cuts off passing options, so all in all, he is a really tough defender to get past.

H2H

As established, Militao is a complete defender and works really well in H2H as well. His standing and sliding tackles are clean and he can shake attackers with his strength. This card is versatile for H2H, in that he can play in any defensive set-up. He has the pace to cover for himself in a back two, and can also do a fantastic job in a back three.

Ousmane Dembele (RW)

FIFARenderZ Ousmane Dembele
  • Overall: 96
  • Requirement: 67000 TOTS Community Points
  • Skill Boost: Ball Control

Overview

Dembele struggled to set an impression after his big-money move to Barcelona back in 2017/18. However, in the past season, Dembele enjoyed much better performances. In just 15 starts, Dembele scored once and registered an impressive 13 assists, finishing the season as La Liga’s top assister.

VSA

This card is built very well for scoring VSA chances. Dembele can hit with both feet and has a very accurate and powerful shot. On top of that, he feels very quick on the ball and has a swift turn. All these things are important for attackers in VSA, in order to keep that momentum going and to keep the chances flowing. This is the ideal type of right-winger for this mode, and there aren’t many cards in that category.

H2H

Because of his rapid speed, slick dribbling, and ability to go onto either foot, Dembele can be a deadly winger for H2H. Furthermore, the final pass is reliable too, as is the shot, so all in all, this is a very good RW. However, Dembele isn’t the best physicality-wise and doesn’t fair well when pressed by multiple players or by the stronger defenders. Avoiding such situations should be something to consider when using this card in H2H.

Luka Modric (CM)

  • Overall: 96
  • Requirement: 67000 TOTS Community Points
  • Skill Boost: Long Passing

Overview

Real Madrid had arguably the most successful season, winning the domestic title and the Champions League. This was Modric’s 10th year in the La Liga, and yet again, he was a key driving force in Real Madrid’s title charges. The Croatian scored twice and added 8 assists in 28 league appearances, whilst adding another 4 assists in 13 UCL appearances. As an important midfield asset to the title-winning team, Modric fully deserves a place in the FIFA Mobile 22 La Liga TOTS.

VSA

This card gets the job done in this mode, nothing stand-out but no issues either. Modric’s shot-taking is reliable and impressive for a central midfielder. He feels agile on the ball and has a smooth turn as well. All in all, Modric probably won’t really make a significant difference to the attack in VSA, which is fair enough, considering his strengths evidently lie elsewhere.

H2H

Modric proves to be much more useful in H2H than in VSA. His passing is very impressive and is one of the key positives of this card. At short-range, Modric’s passes are weighted properly and can quickly convert into chances.

Equally, his long-range passes are also very convenient, helping quick counter-attacks. In addition, Modric is a fluid dribbler and has good control over the ball. Physically, Modric isn’t great, so having defensive support around him would be recommended. This is a great playmaker that can also carry the ball well and even take some good long shots.

Nabil Fekir (CAM)

FIFARenderZ Nabil Fekir
  • Overall: 97
  • Requirement: 111000 TOTS Community Points
  • Skill Boost: Dribbling

Overview

Fekir played a key role in Real Betis‘ 5th place finish. He scored 6 goals and assisted another 8, recording his best tally for goal contributions in all his time at the Spanish club. This will be a season to remember for Real Betis fans, without a doubt. The last time they reached as high as 5th was all the way back in 2004/05.

VSA

This card suits VSA incredibly well and is a great option for the CAM role. Fekir is a very smooth dribbler with an agile turn, and also has an incredible shot in his locker. His weak foot was good enough as well, more often than not. All things considered, this is a well-rounded card that will definitely prove useful for this mode.

H2H

Fekir performs pretty much as well in H2H as in VSA. This is a very fun card to use in-game, due to its agile movement and satisfying burst of pace. Fekir is a dangerous attacker in the final third too, with a brilliant shot and impressive playmaking skills. He has impressive strength over the ball too, despite his fairly small build. Overall, this is a complete attacker and there is little to nothing to complain about.

Thibaut Courtois (GK)

FIFARenderZ Thibaut Courtois
  • Overall: 97
  • Requirement: 111000 TOTS Community Points
  • Skill Boost: Reflexes

Overview

Courtois ensured he ended the season on an absolute high with a sensational MOTM performance in the UCL final. Throughout Real Madrid’s Champions League run, and in the league as well, Courtois made countless key saves to keep his team in the game. He ended the campaign with 16 clean sheets, with only 1 other keeper in Spain’s top division bettering that tally.

VSA

In this season of FIFA Mobile, goalkeepers aren’t worth dwelling on when building VSA teams. As such, Courtois doesn’t really do anything special to justify the huge price tag. He can do the basic well, but struggles with shots other keepers usually struggle with. Until something changes in this aspect of the game, “value for overall” is more important than almost everything else when picking keepers for VSA.

H2H

The possible difference-maker for keepers in this mode, as opposed to H2H, is the quality of distribution, and in fairness, Courtois is not too bad at it. His kicks are usually quite more accurate than most keepers, and his long throws are useful when attempting fast counter-attacks.

Jules Kounde (CB)

FIFARenderZ Jules Kounde
  • Overall: 98
  • Requirement: 163000 TOTS Community Points
  • Skill Boost: Defending

Overview

Kounde has emerged as one of Europe’s most sought-after defenders, and he is only 23 years old. Another stellar campaign from the French youngster helped Sevilla to a solid 4th place finish. There’s no doubt, that a bunch of Europe’s big teams will be chasing Kounde for his signature in the coming seasons.

VSA and H2H Gameplay

This is an utmost complete defender for both VSA and H2H and there is little TOTS Kounde can do to improve. As expected, he is a formidable defender that is very tough to get past. In addition to that, Kounde also has great speed to catch up with attackers, and reliable ball-playing skills too. This card can easily slot into a defensive setup with few issues.

Vinicius Junior (LW)

FIFARenderZ Vinicius Junior
  • Overall: 98
  • Requirement: 163000 TOTS Community Points
  • Skill Boost: Agility

Overview

Vinicius Junior made his breakthrough this season, emerging as one of the best talents in Europe. At 21 years of age, Vinicius netted 17 times and assisted a further 10 for his teammates. In Real Madrid’s impressive UCL-winning run, Vinicius was one of the key cogs, scoring 4 and assisting another 6. The Brazilian has a long career ahead of him, and it is exciting to see what more he can go on to achieve.

VSA and H2H Gameplay

As expected, this is a brilliant and enjoyable card to use. Vinicius has incredible speed and fantastic dribbling, in addition to a deadly shot. However, that’s kind of all there is to it. This is a standard attacking winger and whilst it is probably one of the best in that role, however, there isn’t anything that gives it an edge; that’s the kind of thing that differentiates cards at the top-end. TOTS Vinicius is a card that excels at the foundations but lacks that special factor to make it worth the price.

Karim Benzema (ST)

FIFARenderZ Karim Benzema
  • Overall: 98
  • Requirement: 173000 TOTS Community Points
  • Skill Boost: Finishing

Overview

Benzema had a season that every player in the world dreams of having. With a series of incredible performances both in the league and in Europe, Benzema earned the respect of countless football fans across the planet. He guided his team to the La Liga title, and the UCL title, recording 42 goals and 14 assists – all in just 44 matches.

VSA and H2H Gameplay

TOTS Benzema is the complete striker that can suit close-to-any playstyle. Benzema’s goal-scoring ability is obviously off the charts, but what stands out is how he is solid in all aspects. He is very strong and can physically take on most defenders, but he is also quite quick and smooth with the ball too. In addition to all of that, Benzema can pull off some impressive through balls – a skill which is rare amongst strikers and is surprisingly quite useful to use in H2H. All in all, there are barely any weaknesses in this card and it could very easily slot into almost any team.
