SBCs and Objectives
The boosted cards haven't just come to packs, with more released via SBCs and Objectives.
During the Ligue 1 TOTS week, the following players have dropped:
- Hamari Traore (OVR 92) - OBJ
- FUT Champions TOTS Lois Openda (OVR 90), Fantasy FUT Hero Jean-Pierre Papin (OVR 93) & FUT Champions TOTS Chancel Mbemba (OVR 90) - OBJ
- Flashback Presnel Kimpembe (OVR 91) - SBC
GK - Brice Samba (OVR 93)
Lens has kept the meanest defence all season, conceding just 28 goals in 36 games.
Their new arrival Brice Samba has played every minute of the campaign, keeping a joint-league high of 14 clean sheets along the way and also with the second-best save percentage in the league!
RWB - Jonathan Clauss (OVR 93)
French wing-back Jonathan Clauss beat Moroccan superstar Achraf Hakimi to the hotly contested right-back position in the Ligue 1 TOTS.
The experienced full-back has been excellent for Marseille this season having registered nine assists in the league - the joint-most of any defender.
CB - Facundo Medina (OVR 94)
Another mainstay from the Lens defence, Facundo Medina has been a rock all season.
As well as being defensively sound, he has popped up with two goals and three assists during the campaign.
CB - Marquinhos (OVR 95)
World-class Brazilian defender Marquinhos has once again been the best centre-half in the French league and was duly rewarded with a TOTS inclusion.
Marquinhos, who was part of the FUT 22 TOTS XI, has helped Paris Saint-Germain keep 13 clean sheets during the 2022/23 campaign so far.
LB - Nuno Mendes (OVR 93)
PSG has kept the third-best defence in the league this season which has seen them claim yet another Ligue 1 title (unless there is a major turnaround in goal difference).
Their rapid Portuguese left-back has been a constant attacking threat, providing six assists and grabbing a goal too!
CM - Seko Fofana (OVR 93)
Seko Fofana will no doubt be a popular inclusion among Ultimate Team fans as his special items are usually incredibly overpowered.
The box-to-box centre-mid has been arguably Lens' most influential player, helping his team climb to second in the Ligue 1 table.
CM - Marco Verratti (OVR 94)
Italian midfielder Marco Verratti continues to pull the strings at the heart of the PSG midfield.
The mini-maestro averages nearly 100 passes per 90 minutes, more than anyone else in the league.
CM - Renato Sanches (OVR 92)
The Ligue 1 TOTS was always going to be dominated by PSG players, but we've been treated this year with a Moments version included for Renato Sanches.
He has only managed five league starts all season, with another 16 cameo appearances from the bench, but his upgrade will please the FUT community massively, with it likely to sell for a mint on the market!
LW - Neymar Jr (OVR 96)
Neymar Jr is the first of three Paris Saint-Germain attackers in the Ligue 1 TOTS, with all three stars at the top of their game this season.
Despite making just 18 starts in another injury-ridden season, the Brazilian has managed to register 13 goals and 11 assists domestically.
ST - Lionel Messi (OVR 98)
The second PSG forward to feature is, of course, none other than the 2022 World Cup-winning captain, Lionel Messi.
He leads the assists chart with 16 and has nabbed 15 goals in Ligue 1 so far too, with the little Argentine magician still absolute magic.
ST - Kylian Mbappe (OVR 97)
Arguably the most dangerous forward in world football, Ligue 1's top goalscorer Kylian Mbappe was once again a shoo-in for the TOTS this year.
Now the France international captain, Mbappe has netted 28 goals in 32 matches in the league. Oh, and he has five assists too.
Ligue 1 TOTS Release Date
Unlike the other major league releases, there were no nominees or votes for the Ligue 1 TOTS side.
