Find out here who are the current best and young centre-backs in the FIFA 20 career mode based on their overall ability, potential and market value.
A top centre-back is a must for anyone hoping to win trophies in FIFA 20’s Career Mode. To find someone capable of filling the role, however, is easier said than done. Unless you have a huge transfer budget in place, of course.
Two critical attributes that a central defender must excel in are defending and physical. Someone with a strong rating in defending will more likely be able to dispossess an opponent and guard the goal. While the physical attribute assesses if the player can win possession with his body.
Over the years we’ve seen some truly great players star in central defence such as Ronald Koeman, Franco Baresi, Jaap Stam and Alessandro Nesta.
Who is the best centre-back in FIFA 20?
Virgil van Dijk is the best centre-back in FIFA 20 on a rating of 91, making him the fourth-best player overall. The Liverpool star’s best stats are in marking (93), stand tackle (93), and strength (92). He also intercepts the ball well and is a leader in the backline.
Although the Dutchman won’t come cheap for any gamer hoping to sign him. A transfer value of €90m makes him the game’s most expensive defender, and fourth in the overall list.
But FIFA 20 indicates the 28-year-old Van Dijk still has a good few seasons left in him, with a bit of potential to still unlock.
