New week and new predictions for the FIFA 23 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.
For once, the choice seems absolutely simple and logical. Alban Lafont had a great game in FC Nantes' surprise 3-1 victory over PSG. The championship leader broke his teeth on the French goalkeeper, who notably stopped a penalty from Neymar.
Again a great performance, Andrea Consigli was the main architect of Sassuolo's victory against Inter. Milan indeed lost 2-0 but this result would not have been possible without the various saves by the Italian goalkeeper.
Sacred season for Rennes which remains in ambush for a place on the podium. The club won once again, with a very wide success 4 to 1 against Troyes. Among the best players of the match, we find Meling, the Norwegian was the author of two assists.
A second Real Betis card a week after Nabil Fekir's TOTW? We believe that EA always likes to surprise players. Here it was Alex Moreno who was decisive with a goal and a good overall performance, which should give him a solid card but not as good as his WW.
Expected as one of the new stars of the Premier League, Jadon Sancho was rather disappointed at the start of the season with Manchester United. However, the England international has found his rhythm with the Red Devils, making two assists against Leeds United. Note that its OTW version will receive an upgrade if it is present in the TOTW 23.
Although the Featured Cards have long been snubbed by EA in TOTW 23, the studio has started ramping up the picks a few weeks ago. Therefore, it would not be surprising to see Savanier get a new TOTW card and an upgrade on his Vedettes following his winning goal last weekend.
The change of scenery seems to have paid off for Aubameyang. The former Gunners really made an impression with a magnificent hat-trick, allowing Barça to win the match 4-1. However, his TOTW card will not be interesting on the Meta aspect.
What a match and what a performance from Spurs! The duel between Manchester City and Tottenham kept all its promises with a rather incredible finish, resulting in a goal from Kane in stoppage time. The English striker should therefore receive a second TOTW.
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 TOTW 23, our choice is Jurrien TImber, the central defender of Ajax. The latter scored the only goal of the match, most certainly securing him a spot in Team of the Week 23. Besides, his card could be Meta in 84.
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 23 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 22 will be officially unveiled on Wednesday at 19 p.m.
