FIFA 23 TOTW 1 Predictions?
These cards are form based, so you can often make a pretty good guess at who is in lime for a boost after the first round of games.
For example, Tottenham Hotspur forward Heung-Min Son bagged himself a hat-trick at the weekend. An in-form for him is all but guaranteed. We also believe Real Madrid Central Midfielder Valverde is likely a special after his performance in the Madrid derby.
The other players that performed very well this weekend just gone are Robert Lewandowski and Kevin De Bruyne. If all of the above players get an in-form as we predict, then the first Team of the Week of FIFA 23 is going to be incredibly highly rated.
