We’re big fans of the FIFA video game series here at AtléticoFans, and with the games becoming more and more realistic, more stock has been put into the ‘ratings’ that each player is given in the different game modes.
With the latest edition of the series, FIFA 16, out in the next few weeks, it’s interesting to see how the Atlético players stack up, and whether or not they get the recognition they deserve.
Our joint-best player going into last season was Arda Turan, who is of course now sidelined until January after deciding to join Barcelona. The Turk was rated 84. He’s down a point to 83 this year.
He was tied with Diego Godín. The Uruguayan is now the best player going into the new season and has been elevated to 85.
Defenders who are rated better than Godín? Mats Hummels, Giorgio Chiellini raise some eyebrows.
Atlético’s best new signing? That honour goes to Jackson Martinez, who slots in as the second-best Atlético player on 84.
Antoine Griezmann sits just behind him on 83. Luciano Vietto comes in at a 79 rating, the same as Fernando Torres, whilst Ángel Correa is a promising 76.
Our goalkeepers are both given a score of 81, both improved on last season. Oblak’s recent success has seen him gain four points to draw level with Moyá.
The closest defender to Godín is the returning Filipe Luís, who is way behind on 82.
Here’s the full list:
Goalkeepers: Moyá (81), Oblak (81)
Defenders: Godín (85), Filipe Luís (82), Juanfran (81), Savic (81), Giménez (78), Gámez (78), Siqueira (78)
Midfielders: Koke (83), Tiago (81), Gabi (80), Óliver (79), Carrasco (78), Saúl (76), Thomas (71)
Attackers: Martínez (84), Griezmann (83), Vietto (79), Fernando Torres (79), Ángel Correa (76)
