Real Madrid’s FIFA 17 player ratings have finally been released, with PSG being the surprising omission. In terms of individual players, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo predictably lead the way with ratings of 94 and 93 respectively, but Suarez, Neymar, and Ibrahimovic don’t trail far behind, with ratings of 90, 90, and 91 respectively.
Here is a picture from twitter to show the Real Madrid player ratings.
In terms of Real Madrid themselves, fans might feel a bit miffed to see Bale so low after a brilliant La Liga campaign and a ‘Player of the Tournament’ worthy performance at the EUROs (an 89 might’ve been more appropriate).
Benzema and Keylor Navas can also feel snubbed (though they likely doesn’t care), as the Frenchman’s rating of 86 doesn’t truly reflect his elite standing as one of the top 3 strikers in world football, let alone his statistical brilliance in the goal scoring department in 2015/16, and Keylor Navas’ rating of 83 is simply inaccurate.
Aside from these two, the rest of the ratings seem quite fair. An argument can be made that Carvajal and Casemiro deserve to be rated much higher, but FIFA rarely ever holds defenders in high regards in terms of ratings, and they were never going to skyrocket the Brazilian’s ratings after half a season of great play.
Isco not being in either category should probably have made him higher, but FIFA was bound to snub him since he isn’t a regular starter for Los Blancos.
