New week and new predictions for the FIFA 14 TOTW 22 Team of the Week. As usual, EA will offer new IF cards based on the results of the best players from the past week. The novelty for FIFA 22 obviously lies in the presence of a Featured card, put forward by EA, which will give a double boost to a card 80 and below. We therefore present to you our predictions for the new cards which will be available in the packs from Wednesday at 19 p.m.
The English championship may have been played out this week (we know, we are just halfway through the season) with two draws for Chelsea against two wins for Man City. One of the key men this week is none other than Jordan Pickford, the Everton goalkeeper gave everything to bring a point to his club, including nine saves.
You must have seen the stats of this incredible match between Real Madrid and Cadiz… Benzema's teammates shot 36 times without managing to score a single goal, ending the match with the score of 0-0. Only had to work on 9 saves, Ledesma is a clear favorite for a TOTW card this week.
We are going to be frank, after several predictions, we hesitated to place Juan Cuadrado here since it seems that EA has a very particular desire to deprive Serie A players of a good right defender. A new scorer for Juventus, the Colombian player has been deserving of a special version for a few weeks now...
Sacred week for Manchester City who scored 11 goals in two games. The reigning champions should therefore obtain two TOTW cards (yes yes it is possible) and our first choice is Joao Cancelo. The Portuguese full-back missed November's player of the month award in favor of TAA, but he should console himself with an IF card on the right this time around.
Stuttgart will long remember its match against Serge Gnabry. The German player scored a hat-trick in addition to two assists, for a 5-0 victory over Bayern Munich. This TOTW card should be playable without being Meta, but it's a plus especially if he finishes POTM at the end of the month.
Speaking of cards, it's hard for EA to ignore Manchester City's win over Leeds. The defending champions won the game an incredible 7-0, creating plenty of options among City's players. Our choice is KDB, named player of the match, with two goals in particular.
After being ignored last week, Rafa should finally get a first IF release this year. The Portuguese player contributed four assists and a goal in Benfica's 7-1 win. Although he has a special target card, Rafa could be a good option in TOTW.
Injured last month, the young Norwegian star is already back for Borussia! Author of a double during the week, Erling Haaland could get his first FIFA 22 TOTW card there, after having collected special cards for two years.
One of the big new features of FUT mode on FIFA 22 is to implement a Featured card in the Team of the Week. For the TOTW 14, our choice is Gabriel Martinelli. The Arsenal Brazilian scored two goals against Leeds and one against West Ham this week, making him a good choice for an IF release.
TOTW cards are often interesting at high level but also for DCEs as well as to achieve specific objectives in friendly match mode. Therefore, even on players whose overall rating would be quite low, it is necessary to know how to get these TOTW cards on FIFA 22.
The first source is obviously the transfer market, where you can find a player's TOTW cards in the special versions of their cards. Be careful, however, because the IF cards sell for much more than the basic version.
A second source remains the game's Gold packs, which have these special cards for one week (from Wednesday to the following Wednesday at 19 p.m.). So be careful because once this week is over, it will be impossible to drop them in packs.
Additionally, Team of the Week cards can be obtained as FUT Champion (WL) rewards based on your rank. If this year, the rewards could change since it will be possible to obtain your packs at the end of all your matches (rather than on Thursday), EA should not remove the presence of the TOTW cards.
Finally, specific TOTW Packs will be present during the DCE season, even if these are often unprofitable because they are totally random.
If the cards of the players selected in the Team of the week are often good sources of investment, it is also possible to earn credits via the TOTW. Indeed, there are several methods to speculate on the market.
So, the easiest and regular way is to bet on the normal Gold cards of the current TOTW players. These are not present in the packs during the week, limiting the quantity of cards. If a player is looking to use these cards for DCEs or for their team, the prices can spike a lot. So buy the cards in anticipation of this rise, speculating on TOTW's predictions. This technique will mostly work in the early months of the game, until around the end of December.
In addition, another method is to analyze future good TOTW cards and thus speculate on the cards related to them. For example, if Haaland receives a Team of the Week card, it's likely players will be looking to incorporate him into their FUT roster. Thus, they will also seek to link this new card with other Bundesliga players, Dortmund players or even Norwegian players in order to create the best possible links. It is therefore possible to invest in cards allowing perfect links, just before the release of the new Team of the week. This technique will come in handy with the release of special maps later in the season, until around mid-March, before which time Team of the Week starts to look less interesting on FIFA 22.
Note that these two strategies require good anticipation of the market, but also finding the right timing. Often the cards to buy go up quickly, so you need to plan ahead who to buy. Also, this bull run won't last long, so it's necessary to play for a few days and quickly sell your cards.
So much for our predictions of the new FIFA 14 TOTW 22 Team of the Week players. If as often EA will seek to muddy the waters by selecting slightly more obscure profiles, we are confident that the majority of the players listed above will be available. as a special card from the launch of FIFA 22. As a reminder, the TOTW 14 will be officially unveiled on Wednesday at 19 p.m.
