FIFA 22 will soon fully launch on Oct. 1 and players around the world will start building their ideal team. The full-back position is very important. They’re a crucial part of the defense and include the left-back (LB) and right-back (RB) positions.

You’ll use full-back players while following any formation that has at least four defenders. These players must have higher stats in Defense and Dribbling, as expected, but it’s also good to keep an eye on their Pace since they cover a wide area.

Here are the top 10 left-back players in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team ranked by their overall (OVR) rating.

Even though Marcos Acuña has a higher OVR rating than Theo Hernandez and Ferland Mendy, we recommend you prioritize Hernandez and Mendy because of their high Pace. It depends on how you play and what your team needs, however.

Juan Cuadrado might be in the ninth slot, but he has a high-rated Pace, so he might be better than Carjaval, Pereira, or Navas, for example. Don’t only look at a player’s OVR rating when buying them, consider their stats and the way you play the game.
