FIFA 15 has finally been released to millions of fans around the world, joining the many real football seasons that are currently under way. With the game launched and a few Matchday roster updates released, it's a good time to take a look at the best teams in the game.

 

1. Real Madrid: 87 ATT, 85 MID, 82 DEF, 84 GK

 

Bayern Munich just edges Madrid in terms of overall squad ratings, but the players on the Spanish giants are extremely effective during gameplay. The speed and shooting threat of Ronaldo (94 overall) and Bale are unmatched, and Bayern's extremely good real-life squad doesn't translate to FIFA as well as Madrid's.

 

Pace and dribbling skill up front are combined with great passing midfielders (Kroos, Rodriguez, and Modric is an absurd combination, just as in reality) and a strong defense. Casillas may have declined and now sits at an 84 overall, but he's still capable of making very good saves. Varane has room to improve from his 81 rating, but with Ramos partnering him, this team is the best in the game from front to back.

 

2. Bayern Munich: 87 ATT, 87 MID, 83 DEF, 90 GK

 

Bayern's glittering array of talent is nearly unmatched, and everyone knows the threat Robben poses.

Yes, those ratings are ridiculously good, and do look better than Madrid's on paper. As stated, though, the attributes of some of Bayern's best players don't quite translate to FIFA as well as Madrid's. Ronaldo is the most effective player in the game, and his direct pace and power are much more likely to influence a match than Mueller's intelligent movement and clutch nature--skills more difficult to translate to player-controlled gameplay.

 

3. Barcelona: 88 ATT, 84 MID, 82 DEF, 82 GK

 

Though the club has fallen somewhat from the state of consistent dominance shown for several consecutive years, the roster is still very strong. The new-look attack, in particular, is arguably the best front three in world football. Suarez may be banned in Career Mode to reflect his real-life suspension, but the 89 rated striker can combine with Neymar (86) and Messi (95) when you face an opponent. 

 

4. Chelsea: 84 ATT, 82 MID, 82 DEF, 86 GK

 

Eden Hazard highlights the Chelsea roster, which is strong in every area and has the most in-form striker around.

 

The London club has some fantastic players, but the overall scores come in just under the other big clubs. Eden Hazard's rating has risen to 89, and Diego Costa (87) is currently the most dangerous striker on the planet. Oscar and Willian's relatively lower ratings bring the attack score down somewhat, but they can be very effective on the pitch--particularly Willian's pace.

 

5. Manchester City: 84 ATT, 82 MID, 80 DEF, 82 GK

 

The reigning Premier League champions have slipped somewhat in terms of performance and impressiveness, but the strength of the roster still beats PSG to the top five. Aguero and Dzeko are a great striker combination, and it will be hard to get through the midfield pairing of Yaya Toure and Fernandinho.
