FIFA 16 Ultimate Team™ – Team of the Week

Posted May 18th at 7:00am.

Each week FIFA Ultimate Team assembles the best players from international and club competition around the world. This collection of players is available to challenge in FUT.

On Saturday, Werder Bremen defeated Eintracht Frankfurt by the score of 1-0 and avoided a potential relegation playoff battle. Keeper Felix Wiedwald played the hero, earning the clean sheet. Although Bremen avoided the relegation playoff, Eintracht Frankfurt finished in 16th spot and now must defeat 1. FC Nürnberg to stay in the 1. Bundesliga.

Gonzalo Higuaín made Serie A history on Saturday when he scored a hat-trick in Napoli’s 4-0 win over relegated Frosinone. With those three goals, he became the first player in Italy to score 36 goals in a single season, breaking the previous tally of 35.

On Sunday, SL Benfica retained the Liga NOS title for the third straight season following their 4-1 win over Nacional. Nicolás Gaitán played the hero, scoring twice and assisting on another.
