Andrés Iniesta- Barcelona & Spain
FIFA 15 Rating – 89
Predicted FIFA 16 Rating – 87
Andrés Iniesta has enjoyed another successful season as Barcelona look to win a La Liga, Spanish Cup and Champions League treble. League appearances have been limited to only 19 starts with one assist and Champions League games providing four assists in nine games. Iniesta is a playmaker who controls the tempo that Barcelona play at. Comfortable and composed on the ball and always looking for a creative pass, Iniesta possesses a fantastic football intuition and his ability to find space is legendary. At the age of 31, Iniesta is now being used more sparingly by Barcelona as they look to prolong his ability and stamina for as long as possible. In recent years, the pairing of Iniesta and Xavi was easily the best midfield partnership in European football and they will both be difficult for Barcelona to replace.
Iniesta has made 102 appearances for Spain, winning a World Cup and two European Championships. He has been used sparingly in qualifying for Euro 2016 so far, but will be aiming to be part of the squad should Spain likely make the finals and which will see them aiming for a third consecutive European Championship title.
Iniesta and Barcelona will be hoping for further success in season 2015-16 as they again look to compete at the highest level both domestically and on the European stage.
