The gaming experts at GamesRadar.com have evaluated the teams in FIFA 22 and deduced that Bayern Munich is the game’s best squad using a pretty simple evaluation system.

Will that have any correlation on the real life pitch? That remains to be seen, but here is the rationale for Bayern Munich’s top-shelf rating:

Bayern Munich: 258

Attack: 92

Midfield: 85

Defence: 81

If you have Robert Lewandowski (92) in your team, the chances are your attack is going to be very potent. A supporting cast of Thomas Muller (87), Leroy Sane (84) and Serge Gnabry (85), with Kingsley Coman (86) on the bench for additional firepower, gives the Bavarians a deadly strikeforce.

The double-pivot of Leon Goretzka, whose recent time in the gym has not gone unnoticed with 88 strength, and Joshua Kimmich in a 4-2-3-1 forms the team’s nerve centre.

If you have a need for speed, Alphonso Davies is the third fastest player in FIFA 22 with a 96 rating in acceleration and sprint speed. Coman has a sprint speed of 93 and Sane weighs in with 89. In goal, they still have one of the best: Manuel Neuer is rated 90 overall. Good luck getting past him.

The other squads in the top 10 include:
