As you can see this team is completely stacked, especially if you’re running a Premier League squad. There appears to be options for all kinds of different budgets. It is also really nice to see players like Ramos and Ribery given cards that call back to their glory days.

If you’re lucky you may be able to pack Ribery who is a complete forward who can really do it all, he is a dream player for anyone with a Serie A squad.

Take a look below for what Rulebreakers do, what makes them unique and the leaks prior to the official release of the cards. It is worth noting we should be getting a second, smaller drop, of cards on Sunday evening at 6PM BST / 1PM ET / 10AM ET.

FIFA 23 Rulebreakers Team 2 Leaks:

Popular FIFA Leaker FUTSheriff, has already begun to show off some of what we may see from Rulebreakers Team 2. If leaks are to be believed then Rulebreakers Team 2 already looks like it could compete with Team 1.

  • Franck Ribery (CF, Salernitana) – Franck Ribery is in the twilight of his career now at the age of 39, but any football fan remembers him at his best when he was on the wing for Bayern Munich. So, whenever he receives a special card in FIFA it’s a big occasion.
  • Davinson Sanchez (CB, Tottenham Hotspur) – Sanchez is already quick on FIFA 23, so once he has received his boost he is going to be a nightmare to get past. Don’t expect this card to be cheap though, he will come at a premium.
  • Sergio Ramos (CB,PSG) – Sergio Ramos’ first special in FIFA 23 will be a must have if you can fit him into your squad, especially when you also consider just how good his real face in-game.
  • Estupinan (LB, Brighton) – Right now in the Premier League there aren’t too many options for Left back, luckily EA should be fixing that with the introduction of an Estupinan Rulebreaker.
  • Thomas Meunier (RB, Borussia Dortmund) – The Bundesliga is by far the most neglected league in the game so far for specials, but this RB coming in will be huge bonus to anyone using a Bundesliga squad. He is also a greta link for Road to the Knockout (RTTK) Niklas Sule.
  • Dimitri Payet (CAM, Marseille) – It looks like the French league will be getting some good cards, if the leaks are to be believed. Payet and Sissoko will go perfectly in a team together, whilst Ramos will also slot nicely into the defence.
  • Moussa Sissoko (CDM, FC Nantes) – Sissoko, is always ouststanding on FIFA, so hopefully this new card will be the same. He is strong, has a greta body type for his position, he is pretty quick too.
  • Mikel Merino (CDM, Real Sociedad) – Merino is always a great starter player on FIFA Ultimate Team because he is cheap, but still very good defensively. If this is just an updated version of his normal card, then La Liga teams could be set for a while.
  • Thiago (CM, Liverpool) – One of the best midfielders in the premier league is looking to get a card, having a great season this seems pretty obvious that a promotional card was imminent.
  • Kai Havertz (CAM, Chelsea) – Havertz is fun player on FIFA 23, and his in-form from the international break was a popular card when it first come out. Now that taller players are more viable in game, we predict Havertz will be a great addition to your squad.
  • Emile Smith Rowe (LM, Arsenal) – What a season Arsenal are having, and when you’re doing well FIFA will always favour you in promos. Arsenal already have Odegaard and Jesus specials on the market, this Smith Rowe will slot in nicely.
  • Ezequiel Avila (ST, Osasuna) – Avila has been leaked, but we are unsure if he will be part of the promo in packs, or maybe even released as an objective. We will have to wait and see.
  • Ivan Toney (ST, Brentford) – The Brentford man is probably England’s second best striker now, and this card will make a great addition to any Premier League team.

FIFA 23 Rulebreakers Team 2 Predictions: 

There isn’t much to go on so far with Rulebreakers Team 2, but it is worth noting that Rulebreakers Team 1 has a lot of La Liga and Premier League players when compared to other leagues.

This leads us to thinking that we may see more Bundesliga, Serie A and Ligue 1 players in Team 2 than in Team 1.

Keeping that in mind, below is who we think would make good candidates for Rulebreakers Team 2: 

  • Thiago (CM, Liverpool) – Thiago is one of the best dribblers in the game, so naturally that could be nerfed a bit to make him a much more complete player. 
  • Franck Ribery (CF, Salernitana)– This is the only card we have seen leaked so far, but it could be the most exciting and in the promo, with just how good Ribery could be.
  • Emile Smith Rowe (LM, Arsenal) – We have now seen site of the Arsenal man in the leaks above, but with him looking set to release their are some great options on the left for Premier League squads.  
  • Moussa Sissoko (CDM, FC Nantes) – Every time Sissoko receives a card in FIFA, it is always so over powered when it releases. Now he is in Ligue 1, it will be no different and he will go a long way to getting some of the stars in that league into your team.
  • Mikel Merino (CDM, Real Sociedad) – We love Merino on FIFA because he is such an all rounder, but he doesn’t normally receive special. This could be a very exciting card if you have a La Liga team.
  • Sergio Ramos (CB,PSG) – Ramos used to be the best defender in the world, in recent years age and injuries have caught up with him so it is going to be incredibly exciting to have him back to his best in Rulebreakers Team 2. 
  • Kai Havertz (ST / CAM, Chelsea) – The Chelsea star could look to get a promotional card on Friday – having received an inform two weeks ago which propelled him to an 86, Havertz could look to get a boost here.
