Niang Benzema
El shaarawy Asamoah Iniesta I.Williams
Evra Barzagli Umtiti IF Sergi
Sirigu

Already have the complete right side and benz is untradeable so would like to get good squad built around them and thought serie a to be most balanced to link up and provide support to Iniesta at cm

    First thought is the midfield is attacking, although Asamoah has HH. Both CM's are also very short.

    Personally I wouldn't used Umtiti either because of his HH.

    Possibly a more defensive mid like De Rossi.

    Haven't used Benz but Niang is very good. Also El Sha has 5* skills his year which I only found out a day or two ago.

    Played 50+ games with OTW Umtiti and have not had issue yet with H/H, actually prefer to have one step up with H/H and Barzagli with L/H to stay back more but could always swap in varane and danilo if that becomes issue, De Rossi may be worth a shot and would open up more options at CB besides straight Juve

    That's fair enough if it's working in your teams. De Rossi's not a bad shout because he gets the perfet link with El Sha meaning you don't even need a Serie A Cb and LB.

    Panic Bought it haha, kept the LB and CB cause the new reqs only let 6 from same league I believe so with the current setup I can't be bothered to come up with anything else

    My main concern would be that midfield. Asamoah is a beast, don't get me wrong, but he's going to struggle to hold down that midfield on his own, all the rest of the midfield don't offer much defensively.

    I don't know if you played last weekends league but it was brutal and most people would be on counter attack if 1-0 up, and in no time at all you will find yourself defending a 3 on 3 counter against Sterling, Martial, Rashford every other game.

    Played Niang and Asamoah in my second team. Everyone says the're beast and Asamoah indeed looks like one but they were both underwhelming for me.
