La Liga has always been packed with incredible talent, and it’s proving to be a popular league yet again in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team. 

The likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona are famous for their superstar squads, and many FUT fans dream of building their teams around Lionel Messi, Antoine Griezmann or Eden Hazard. Unfortunately, this type of player typically costs an arm, a leg and requires unbelievable amounts of pack luck. 

For those of us with limited time and resources, we need to focus our attention on affordable overpowered players to help us compete on a budget. So, I’ve put together a list of the best cheap La Liga players on FIFA 20, with suggested signings for every position. 

Let the wheeling and dealing commence.

Best 11: Cheap Overpowered La Liga Starter Team for FIFA 20

PLEASE NOTE: each of these players comes with a suggested upgrade, but I recommend holding fire on these until the transfer market dies down. Otherwise, you’ll end up wasting more money than a Real Madrid side in transition. Be patient.

GK: Jasper Cillessen

Estimated Price: 1500 coins

Jasper Cillessen is a perfectly dependable goalkeeper on FUT, and you won’t want to spend too heavily on this position when first putting your team together. He’s an absolute steal at such a low price, and his diving, handling and reflex stats are more than adequate for a cheap starter squad. 

Possible Upgrade: Alphonse Areola

RB: Sergi Roberto

Estimated Price: 2000 coins

I’m actually a little surprised at how cheap Sergi Roberto is on FIFA 20. I know most players don’t really want to spend big on their right-back, but he’s got a respectable overall rating which is backed up with impressive passing and dribbling stats. His pace isn’t really ideal, but there’s no doubt he’s a great budget defender this year. 

Possible Upgrade: Álvaro Odriozola

CB: Gabriel Paulista

Estimated Price: 2000 coins

He’s back. Gabriel Paulista was an absolute monster for me at the back last year, so I’m pleased to say he’s every bit as good this time around. He’s just about quick enough for the fast pace of FUT, but it’s obviously his defending and physical stats which make him stand out. He’s an essential purchase for any cheap La Liga team. 

Possible Upgrade: José Giménez

CB: Nacho Fernández

Estimated Price: 1500 coins

Much like Paulista, Nacho has very impressive defensive stats, so he’s more than capable of staying solid at the back. He’s particularly good at interceptions and headed clearances, but his lack of pace means you need to get his positioning absolutely spot on. Basically, maybe you should lay off the sprint button with him. 

Possible Upgrade: Éder Militão

LB: José Luis Gayà

Estimated Price: 1000 coins

Without question, Gayà is La Liga’s best budget left-back. He’s quick enough to keep up with any pacey wingers, while also good enough at crossing to pose a real attacking threat. If you’re looking for the Spanish version of Andy Robertson, then this is probably the closest you’ll get for such a low price. 

Possible Upgrade: Marcelo

CDM: Geoffrey Kondogbia

Estimated Price: 950 coins

Okay, so I don’t think Geoffrey Kondogbia is as overpowered as last year, but he’s still a beast if you put him in the CDM role, He isn’t quick enough to be effective as a CM, but his unbelievable physicality makes him ideal for protecting that back-four. Don’t expect him to get on the scoresheet very often, but he’s the rock every team needs. 

Possible Upgrade: Casemiro

CM: Héctor Herrera

Estimated Price: 1000 coins

Nothing about Héctor Herrera seems that impressive, apart from the fact he’s so damn consistent. He’s an overpowered jack-of-all-trades player, with average stats across the board making him the most dependable member of your squad. When momentum can fluctuate so suddenly on FUT, adaptable players are essential.

Possible Upgrade: Saúl Ñíguez

CM: Thomas Partey

Estimated Price: 2000 coins

Oh yes. There ain't no party like a Thomas Partey. He’s good at just about everything: dribbling, shooting, defending, he’s an absolute animal in the centre of the park. His fantastic defensive attributes mean he could also serve as a CDM, which would leave you free to bring in a more attack-minded centre-mid. 

Possible Upgrade: James Rodríguez (CAM)

RW: Ángel Correa

Estimated Price: 2500 coins

He perhaps isn’t as fast as some other right-wingers, but Correa is one of the most technically gifted forwards in La Liga. His control, balance and agility allow him to wriggle his way through defences, compensating for his slight lack of pace and power. Having said that, he’s still pretty damn quick on his day.

Possible Upgrade: Ousmane Dembélé

LW: Thomas Lemar

Estimated Price: 3500 coins

Thomas Lemar is a similar sort of winger. Yes, he’s got a bit of pace in his locker, but it’s his dribbling and technical ability which really mark him out. It’s incredibly difficult to get the ball off him, and sometimes the opposition are left stranded as he cuts inside and bends one into the top bin. A great early signing. 

Possible Upgrade: Gonçalo Guedes

ST: José Morales

Estimated Price: 5000 coins

There are actually tons of great La Liga strikers in FIFA 20, but I’ve ended up sticking with Levante’s Morales. His pace is what really catches the eye here, and this will prove particularly important if you do end up opting for Lemar and Correa on the wings. Of course, his shooting and dribbling are also pretty good, which is why he can be so lethal in front of goal. 

Possible Upgrade: Iñaki Williams
