FIFA 21: The best defenders for your FUT Team from the Bundesliga

Like every year, the FUT mode is the most popular in FIFA 21. Gamers worldwide are passionate about sending the best possible team to the Weekend League every weekend. Many of them rely on a squad from different leagues. But for fans of the Bundesliga, it can also be interesting to build a team only of players from the German league. We will show you the best options for your FUT squad consisting exclusively of players from the Bundesliga. Besides, we offer you strong low-cost alternatives if the first choice is a bit too expensive for you.

In the following, you can see which defenders from the Bundesliga you should have on your Shopping List in FUT 21.



Mats Hummels (Borussia Dortmund)

The best at this position is Mats Hummels. The World Cup winner has a strong total value of 86. Also, his low price for his strength makes him extremely interesting. For only 9,400 coins, you get one of the best central defenders in the game. Only his weak value in passing makes Mats Hummels vulnerable in the FUT Game.


David Alaba (FC Bayern Munich)

You have to pay a lot more for the defender of the German record champion. Even though he does not have such a significant weakness in his card as Mats Hummels, the Austrian only has an overall rating of 84. Nevertheless, with 58,000 coins, he is considerably way more expensive than his former teammate Mats Hummels.


Niklas Süle (FC Bayern München)

Like David Alaba, Niklas Süle has an overall rating of 84. The German international is particularly well suited to the job as an inside defender because of his height and strong physique. In the offensive, however, he has strong weaknesses. His weak value in the area of shooting makes him not useful for the offensive. You have to pay 6,800 coins for Süle.

Even though you can get two top central defenders for an acceptable price with Mats Hummels and Niklas Süle, you can get them even cheaper without sacrificing much in terms of quality.


Matthias Ginter (Borussia Mönchengladbach)

For only 2,300, you get the German international Mathias Ginter. With a strong 82 points in the overall ranking, you get a strong central defender who has already won the World Cup. Ginter was a member of the German national team in 2014.


Lukas Piszczek (Borussia Dortmund)

Would you like a little more experience? Lukas Piszczek is no longer the youngest, but he still has a strong 80 points overall. Also, he can be bought at a lower price than his former colleague Matthias Ginter.


Martin Hinteregger (Eintracht Frankfurt)

Martin Hinteregger has developed into a solid defender in the Bundesliga. First active with Borussia Mönchengladbach, then with FC Augsburg, he now plays for Eintracht Frankfurt. The Austrian has been able to convince with good performances over the years. EA Sports rewards him with a strong total value of 80. If you want to have him in your team, you have to invest much less than Lukas Piszczek or Matthias Ginter, making him even more impressive in the FUT Game.


Lars Bender (Bayer 04 Leverkusen)

The highest-rated right-back in the Bundesliga is Bayer 04 Leverkusen's Lars Bender. The defender has 82 total points. His strengths, however, clearly lie in the defence. Due to his lack of pace and shooting strength, he is of little use offensively.


Thomas Meunier (Borussia Dortmund)

On the other hand, Thomas Meunier from Borussia Dortmund is very balanced. The new signing from Paris has a total strength of 82. It is noticeable that Meunier's values are very evenly distributed, and hardly any particularly strong or weak values can be found.


Benjamin Pavard (FC Bayern München)

The Frenchman also convinces with excellent values in the defence similar to Lars Bender. However, he is hardly useful for the offensive. Lack of pace is his greatest weakness. Nevertheless, the world champion is top in the defence. An overall score of 81 makes Pavard an exciting player.

Also, there are cheap alternatives for your team in the right defender position, who know how to convince with quality.


Pavel Kaderabek (TSG 1899 Hoffenheim)

With an overall rating of 80, Pavel Kaderrabek is almost as good as the top players. However, he is available at about half the price of them. This makes the TSG 1899 Hoffenheim player a real alternative on the right-wing.


Stefan Lainer (Borussia Mönchengladbach)

Stefan Lainer of Borussia Mönchengladbach is somewhat more expensive than Kaderabek. Nevertheless, the Austrian with a strong 80 points can be a useful reinforcement for your FUT team.


Danny Da Costa (Eintracht Frankfurt)

Danny Da Costa from Eintracht Frankfurt turns out to be a real bargain. The defender has an overall rating of 78 and is by far cheaper than Kaderabek and Lainer.



Marcel Halstenberg (RB Leipzig)

The strongest left-back in the league plays for RB Leipzig and is called Marcel Halstenberg. An overall rating of 82 makes the German international the strongest left-back in the Bundesliga. Similar to his colleagues on the right Pavard and Bender, he also has difficulties in offensive play. His pace and shot values are not particularly strong. A plus point for the German international, however, is his price. Only 2,500 coins have to be paid for him.


Alphonso Davis (FC Bayern München)

With 81 points, the young Canadian is only one point weaker than Marcel Halstenberg. Last season's Champions League winner has his great strength in pace. With a score of 96, he is one of the fastest players in FIFA 21. However, at 64,000 coins, he is way more expensive than Marcel Halstenberg.


Nico Schulz (Borussia Dortmund)

With an overall strength of 80, Nico Schulz is one of the best right-backs in the Bundesliga. Like Alphonso Davis, he shines above all with pace. Here he can boast a value of 87.

Even though Marcel Halstenberg, the best right-back, is not very expensive, there are still attractive, inexpensive alternatives on the right side.


Ramy Bensebaini (Borussia Mönchengladbach)

One of them is Ramy Bensebaini from Borussia Mönchengladbach. Through strong performances in the pre-season, Bensebaini could put himself into the focus. In FIFA 21, he has a value of 79. Besides, he is cheaper than Halstenberg, which makes him a real alternative at the left backside.


Jose Angel Esmoris Tasende (RB Leipzig)

Marcel Halstenberg's team-mate has a strong overall rating of 80. Compared to Bensebaini or Halstenberg, however, his signing is much more cost-intensive.
