Barcelona are the reigning La Liga champions, but have not started the defence of their title in the best way.
Ernesto Valverde’s men look some way off the side which romped to the title last season through the kind of performances that saw them keep their 5 star rating in FIFA 20.
Undoubtedly one of the best teams in the game, Barcelona have the privilege of calling on the likes of Lionel Messi and Frenkie De Jong. But what have EA Sports rated the duo, and the rest of the Barcelona squad?
We’ve got you covered. Read on for Barcelona’s FIFA 20 player ratings and stats in full, as well as some tips.
Squad list is based on players in latest downloadable update at time of publication.
Barcelona’s FIFA 20 ratings: Goalkeepers
Marc-Andre ter Stegen has been in the headlines recently about his place – or lack of one – in the German national team. But the goalkeeper is an absolute titan in FIFA 20, with a rating of 90 that makes him the second-highest-rated Barcelona player.

Barcelona’s FIFA 20 ratings: Defenders
In La Liga last season, Barcelona conceded 36 goals in 38 games, and boast some of FIFA 20’s best defenders. Gerard Pique leads the way with a rating of 88, but he is joined by Jordi Alba, Samuel Umtiti and Clement Lenglet in being above 84.
Player to poach: Jean-Clair Todibo is a relatively new addition to the Barcelona squad, but the centre-back has the potential to become one of the upper-echelon defenders in the game. Starting with an overall of 71, the French teenager could raise as high as 86 if you play your cards right.
Barcelona defender ratings for FIFA 20: Gerard Pique (88), Jordi Alba (87), Samuel Umtiti (86), Clement Lenglet (85), Nelson Semedo (82), Sergi Roberto (82), Junior Firpo (79), Jean-Clair Todibo (71), Moussa Wague (71), Sergio Akieme (67), Jorge Cuenca (65), Chumi (65), Ronaldo Araujo (65).
Barcelona’s FIFA 20 ratings: Midfielders
Summer signing Frenkie de Jong has taken a big boost from his initial FIFA 19 rating of 77 as a result of his incredible season with Ajax. The Dutchman’s new score of 85 sees him come in quick as Barcelona’s third-best midfielder in game.
Player to poach: Riqui Puig was the talk of Barcelona last season and his potential has been carried over to FIFA 20. The central midfielder starts out with a rating of 71 – decent enough, but not at the level of Barcelona’s other players. Use this to your advantage, and you could be reaping the rewards of his final potential rating of 87.
Barcelona midfielder ratings for FIFA 20: Sergio Busquets (89), Ivan Rakitic (86), Frenkie de Jong (85), Arthur (84), Arturo Vidal (84), Carles Alena (76), Riqui Puig (71), Carles Perez (71), Hiroki Abe (70), Ludovit Reis (70), Alex Collado (65).
Barcelona’s FIFA 20 ratings: Forwards
Barcelona’s attack is pretty boring in FIFA 20. There’s just 94-rated Lionel Messi, the best player in the game, and Antoine Griezmann and Luis Suarez, both of whom come in with ratings of 89. Who would want to pick from a trio like that?
Player to poach: There aren’t too many options to poach in Barcelona’s latest line of forwards. Messi, Griezmann, Suarez and Ousmane Dembele are all certain to cost close to £100m. But of the remaining options, Abel Ruiz, is certainly not a bad one. The striker starts the game at 68 rated, but can grow to 84. Although this isn’t exactly the level of his Barcelona teammates, it would prove good business for a 4-star team, or make for a tidy profit on a future sale.
