FIFA Ultimate Team - Team of the Week

Each week, FIFA Ultimate Team assembles the best players from international and club competition around the world. This collection of players is available to challenge in FIFA Ultimate Team.

In one of two Moscow derbies taking place over the weekend, CSKA defeated Lokomotiv 1:2. Captain and goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev made an incredible save on a penalty in the 74th minute. Although Lokomotiv would score on the ensuing corner, teammate Ahmed Musa gave the visitors a crucial 3 points by adding a goal only eight minutes left in the match.

The Belgium league is underway and Racing Genk are currently atop the table after comfortably defeating Oostende 3:0. Highly sought-after defender Serigne Kara was absolutely stunning in the backfield and a huge reason why the visitors could not score. Fans of the club would love to improve upon last year’s 3rd place finish and perhaps win the league for the second time in four seasons.

Elias was the hero for Flamengo as he scored in injury time to help the club salvage a point against Botafogo. While the club from Rio de Janeiro is currently hovering near the bottom of the table, the season is still very young and there is still time for them to contend for the league title.
