Ronaldo in, Messi benched in Di Maria's FIFA 18 Ultimate Team Squad Battle side

The Argentina captain has had to make way for the PSG man, who clearly prefers the right wing all to himself!

Another week, another new featured Squad Battle in FIFA 18's Ultimate Team — and this time around it's Paris Saint-Germain's Angel Di Maria doing the draft.

Having played alongside — and against — a massive list of stars throughout a storied career, the Argentine knows a thing or two about who he'd like to line up beside as his choices show.

Former Real Madrid team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo leads the line in a 4-3-3 formation, with Neymar on the left and Di Maria himself on the right side of the forward line.

As such, there was no space for national compatriot Lionel Messi, who has to make do with a spot on the bench!

Di Maria's squad

A midfield of Andrea Pirlo, Marco Verratti and Andres Iniesta make up a formidable engine room, while the tricky winger can call upon the services of none other than Diego Maradona from the bench should the starting XI need assistance.

It's unlikely that they would, however, with the solid backline including Sergio Ramos and Gerard Pique being backed up by the one and only Gianluigi Buffon between the sticks.

Additionally, Di Maria's own card is a boosted version rated at 99, meaning there will be little time to waste in getting the ball back from the Argentine's ultra dangerous squad.

Still, it could be worse — there could be four 99 cards like Bayern's from last week...

Happy trails, gamers!
