Having a high-tier defensive line is essential to ensuring you do not concede loads of goals in EA FC 24, and by having some of the best CBs in the game, you can achieve this.
Central defenders are one of the most critical positions on FC 24, as they are the heart of your backline. They will be the players who engage with your opponent’s attack most often.
So, let’s dive into the Top 10 Meta CBs you want in your Ultimate Team. However, first, you must know what makes a CB great in UT.
What Makes a CB Meta in EA FC 24 Ultimate Team?
In EA FC 24 Ultimate Team, the meta CBs will have a combination of the following:
- High Pace
- 77 or higher.
- High Defending
- 84 or above.
- Good Defensive PlayStyles
- Anticipate, Jockey, Block & Intercept are the most important to look for.
While some CBs in the game may be higher rated and numerically be the “best,” the Overall is irrelevant.
For example, Wendie Renard, an 88 OVR defender, would not be deemed a meta player due to her low 53 Pace. A player like William Saliba, who has a 83 OVR, would be better suited as he has 82 Pace.
