FIFA 18 may be on the horizon, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had with FIFA 17.
YouTuber BMOnus decided to find out what would happen if the best attacking players played against the best defensive ones.
To do this, he created both teams using FIFA 17 ‘s Career Mode. He then tracked their progress through a season – with the winner being the team who finished higher.
Let’s take a look at the line ups.
The attacking team, playing as Bournemouth, includes the likes of Mesut Ozil, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez.
Meanwhile, Jerome Boateng, Philipp Lahm and Marcelo are amongst the star players in the defending team – playing as Burnley.
So, who comes out on top?
At the halfway point, against all odds, it’s the defensive team that finishes higher – in third place behind Swansea and Spurs.
Bournemouth manage to get to 14th place – winning six matches from 19.
Can Burnley keep up the momentum?
They sure can.
Boateng’s men finish top of the league – winning 23 games from 38.
Bournemouth end up in ninth – winning 14 games.
So, there you have it. According to FIFA 17, a team including the likes of Ronaldo, Messi and Lewandowski perhaps isn’t as effective as you’d think.
But somehow we think it’s wrong this time.
