FIFA Ultimate Team - Team of the Week

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 FIFA Ultimate Team.

Although Bayern München dropped their first points of the season after Tuesday’s 1:1 draw with SC Feiburg, they have started the 2013/14 campaign in a similar fashion to last year, winning. On Saturday, Bayern easily defeated Numberg 2:0 with Philipp Lahm helping to set-up both goals in the second half.

The Serie A season started over the weekend and Napoli sit atop the standings thanks to a commanding 3:0 win over Bologna. Slovak international Marek Hamšik scored twice for the club from Naples which have been pegged by many as a viable threat to win the Serie A title this season.

Arsenal’s Lukas Podolski scored twice to help the London side win their first match of the season, defeating Fulham 1:3 at Craven Cottage. Unfortunately for the Gunners, Podolski suffered a minor injury in a match on Tuesday against Fenerbahçe of Istanbul, which will keep him sidelined for the next three weeks.
