After the summer break, some of the European football leagues are back for the 19/20 season, and so is FIFA’s TOTW. To avoid terrible squads during FUTTIES and TOTS, EA Sports took a break from releasing them weekly. Here are our FIFA 19 Team of the Week 42 (TOTW 42) predictions.
How to Get Team of the Week Players
Team of the Week players can be found in any gold pack. If the player has a base silver card, they can also be found in silver packs, and the case is the same for players with base bronze cards in FIFA 19, but we don’t see them very often. If you don’t pack them, you will also be able to buy them from the transfer market.
What Team of the Week Players Are & What’s Different
Team of the Week players in FIFA 19 are just slightly upgraded versions of existing players in the game. They are awarded for good performances in real-world football and players’ rating gradually get higher as they get more and more in-forms. You’ll notice them due to the card being black rather than gold.
