FIFA 22 TOTW 3 predictions ft. Salah, Lemar, Embolo, more

Another weekend of football has wrapped up and that means another Team of the Week for FIFA 22. Here are our predictions for Week 3.
FIFA 22 TOTW 3 predictions ft. Salah, Lemar, Embolo, more

It was a big weekend of football and some giants of the game found themselves humbled, with FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and PSG all registering defeats.

It's a set of results that has sure made our FIFA 22 Team of the Week 3 predictions extra... well unpredictable, but this also offers the chance for some less fancied names to snatch a place in our predictions.

One player who does not require snatching is Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian forward has already previously appeared in a Team of the Week in FIFA 22 and after his incredible goal against Man City on Sunday, he should surely deserve an honourable mention for TOTW 3.

Also in the Premier League, Andros Townsend made the headlines after scoring against Man United (and at Old Trafford no less) adding further salt to the wound. This came after he performed Ronaldo's trademark celebration following a goal that earned his side a draw.

In LaLiga, the game of the weekend was surely Atletico's 2-0 defeat of FC Barcelona, with Koeman seemingly unable to stop the rot at the club. Two players were standout performers, Thomas Lemar and Luis Suárez, both of whom scored and assisted one another.

We've chosenLemar for our TOTW but it could have gone either way. You can check out all our predictions below.
