New week and new predictions for the FIFA 9 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.
Usually when we talk about Argentina, we rather think of the many stars who play in attack. However, it was Aston Villa goalkeeper Emeliano Martinez who stood out against Uruguay. The selection of Messi earned three points from this difficult duel thanks to the excellent performance of his goalkeeper.
Few realistic options this week on the goalkeeping side, so our choice is Craig Gordon. The Scottish goalkeeper had a very solid game against Moldova, allowing Scotland to maintain their second place in their group behind the untouchable Denmark.
While La Liga started the season on FIFA with few viable wing options, the Spanish league now appear to be adding a new card a week. This time it's left-back Jose Gaya, following his fine performance in La Roja's 1-0 win over Greece.
So generally, we don't list a silver card in our predictions. However, with the Talent Manager event currently linked to the Bundesliga, we consider it interesting to list here a card that could be very interesting in this game mode. Indeed, if Hincapié obtains a significant boost, he could become a solid DC, or even a meta card if featured.
One of the most prominent players in Europe in recent months, Lucas Paqueta continues to see his rating rise following his solid performance with Brazil. The Olympique Lyonnais player is establishing himself more and more as one of the bosses of this team. Note that he is one of the favorites for the title of player of the month in Ligue 1, a special card above 86 could be interesting.
If the IF version of TOTW 1 must have given some people nightmares when the game was released, this second special map should be a little less difficult to counter given the current teams. However, Sarr, author of two goals with Senegal, should be a very good super sup on FIFA 22.
The English selection continues its good year 2021 with a new card against Albania. The lions won the game with a fairly brutal score of 5-0, including a hat-trick from Harry Kane. Apart from his three goals, the Tottenham striker also contributed with an assist.
Speaking of a brutal score, it is difficult to miss the card produced by France on Saturday evening. The reigning world champions planted 8 goals in Kazakhstan, securing their ticket to Qatar. Among the scorers, Kylian Mbappé panicked the counters with four goals and an assist. The price of this card is likely to be completely crazy…
Merih Demiral, Bologne, Serie A
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 8, our choice is Merih Demiral, the central defender of Bologna. Turkey logically crushed Gibraltar 6-0 and Demiral was one of the scorers for his selection.
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 9 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 9 will be officially unveiled on Wednesday at 19 p.m.
