High ratings for CBs?

Recommended Posts

I see CBs such as Laporte, Hummels etc. have ratings during the season of 7.80 on average, along with 8+ Player of the Match awards. 

When I keep a clean sheet my CBs get around 7.2-7.5, so how are the ones above so high? Thanks!

Who knows?

They are playing for different teams who will be using different tactics to yours and will face opposition that will probably play differently than if they played you.

7.2-7.5 match ratings are good match ratings, just be happy with the clean sheet :).

Whether those leagues are loaded and also whether they're simulating matches in full detail will have an influence as well.

One other thing that can be going on, which I've noticed for any aerially excellent CB, is that they win lots of headers that get classed as key when defending on corners, which helps with the ratings.  And then of course they're going to make loads of interceptions, because they're good defenders playing on good teams and they'll be taking control of a lot of hoofed balls and breaking up desperate counterattacks from inferior teams.  Add to that a couple of passes hitting their pacy forwards or midfielders on the break, and there's your 7.8 game in, game out.

At least you're not in Ligue 1 in my current save.  PSG's star player is a Welsh regen who doesn't have less than a 12 in ANY stat, and he plays CB.  He pulls some pretty high ratings too.
