Let’s play FIFA 18: Barcelona vs. Chelsea

Simulating and playing Chelsea’s next Premier League match on FIFA 18. Can the virtual Blues beat the virtual Blaugrana?

In this series, I will use FIFA 18 to simulate as well as play the next Chelsea FC match -- with the difficulty on the highest level, because much like Chelsea FC, I occasionally like to make things difficult on myself for no reason whatsoever.

My shot at glory (with commentary):

For the starting lineup I have the following to take on the Blaugrana:

Courtois | Rudiger, Christensen, Azpilicueta | Alonso, Kante, Drinkwater, Moses | Hazard, Morata, Willian

I probably cared a bit too much about this matchup. As the game continued I became pretty invested in winning and frankly didn’t take it so well when that didn’t go my way. There were a plethora of chances that I missed out on, making for a tough ending and a difficult result in both my gameplay and the simulation.

As always, this simulation also features the same lineups as above.
