Best archetypes

Attackers

  • Cheetah (Pace)
  • Finisher (Shooting)
  • Maestro (Dribbling)

There’s not a whole lot of explanation needed here for this set. This set of archetypes boosts pace, shooting, and dribbling. All three are key components to scoring, so having added boosts should certainly come in hand.

Midfielders

  • Cheetah (Pace)
  • Architect (Passing)
  • Finisher (Shooting)

OR

  • Guardian (Defense)
  • Acrobat (Physical)
  • Architect (Passing)

This will obviously depend on what kind of midfielder you want to be out on the pitch. If you’re going for a offensive bent, go with the former. That one should gel nicely as an attacking midfielder. Or, go with the latter. That set should help tremendously with defense.

Defenders

  • Guardian (Defense)
  • Bull (Physical)
  • Cheetah (Pace)

If you’re looking for more a Varane-like build for Pro Clubs, this unit should be of assistance. This set boosts the Pace, and well as making it easier to win ball battles, as well as tackle and take the ball away.

Best perks

Attackers

  • Skilled Dribbler
  • Poacher
  • Clutch Finisher

This set was a bit of a tough call, but we’ll go with three that will help with dribbling, inside shooting, and boost stats in tense situations. If you want more of a faster build, consider swapping out one for the Active First Touch perk. This one boosts ball control, acceleration, and speed.

Midfielders

  • Distance Shooter
  • Threaded Pass
  • Tireless Runner

OR

  • Tireless Runner
  • Chase Down
  • Precision Pass

Offensive-minded midfielders should like the former set, which boost passing, pace, and shooting. Distance Shooter grants 5* Weak Foot ability, and Tireless Runner grants the Second Win and Solid Player traits.

Defensive-minded mids, on the other hand, can opt for the latter one. This one also boosts pace and passing, but also helps with recovery and chasing back after a possession change.

Defenders

  • Last Defender
  • Lock Down
  • Physical Strength

Defenders need to be strong, so this group should be of help. Physical Strength boosts strength and ball control when jostling, shielding, or heading the ball. Last Defender boosts attributes if you are the last one back, and don’t sleep on Lock Down. This one provides a boost, for 15 minutes after your team scores a goal.
