This is the side of the game that a lot of the casual players forget. Defending is as much a part of FIFA 16 as it is real football, so whether your building an ultimate team, playing a career game or simply having a casual match against friends its still worth noting who are the best defensive players on FIFA 16. This list will show you the top 10 players with the best overall defence rating. Remember of course that this is overall defence rating, so some will be better at heading, some better at tackling and some better at defensive positioning, this you will have to find out on your own. There has to be some fun left in experimentation.
|Player||Defence Rating||Overall Rating||Team|
|Mats Hummels||88||86||Borussia Dortmund|
|Jerome Boateng||87||87||Bayern Munich|
|Sergio Ramos||87||87||Real Madrid|
|Philipp Lahm||87||87||Bayern Munich|
|Diego Godin||87||85||Athletico Madrid|
If you like a defensive style of play and your playing a casual game or a season mode then looking at the players above picking either Juventus or Bayern Munich will give you a great start. Each of those clubs have a defensive partnership with both players in the top 10 defensive players of FIFA 16. Also a point of note is there is only 1 premier league player in the top 10 and that’s Per Mertesacker. And while he has one of the best overall defensive ratings, a pace rating of only 31 does hamper him in certain situations. Something to consider when your building your ultimate team.
