FIFA 13 Ultimate Team: Bundesliga Team of the Season Cards Revealed

0 of 2

    Just days before the 2012-13 Champions League final on May 25, FIFA 13's Ultimate Team mode is ready to reveal its Bundesliga Team of the Season cards.

    Following on from the Most Consistent and Premier League Team of the Season selections is an arrangement of cards that celebrates the best players from Germany's top division.

    This is the fourth Team of the Season reveal from a total of eight, the rest of which will arrive across the coming weeks. These card variations represent the best overall statistical performances of each individual included in Ultimate Team, meaning they're likely to be rather costly. All will enter packs at 1 p.m. ET on May 22.

Analysis

2 of 2

    As expected, a stunning year for the Bundesliga is capitalised on with a Team of the Season selection of utmost quality.

    It's particularly staggering to see an entire midfield of players rated 90 and over, with the likes of Marco Reus, Toni Kroos and Jefferson Farfan on the bench at 91, 89 and 89 respectively.

    It's safe to say this is likely to be the strongest Team of the Season reveal, especially when you consider the vital attributes of each card.

    Silver users will be particularly excited to see such amazing variations for Ömer Toprak and Daniel Carvajal. Although both are rated 74 overall (the top mark for a silver card), their most important stats compete with the gold standard 80s. Expect these, like many of the other cards, to cost an absolute bomb.

    Arjen Robben's late run of form wasn't enough to see him included. Ilkay Gundogan and Marc-Andre ter Stegen may have also been included after posting excellent seasons. Overall, EA Sports seem to have the selection pretty spot on.
