Kylian Mbappe vs Erling Haaland: The winner across every FIFA 23 in-game attribute

Kylian Mbappe vs Erling Haaland: The winner across every FIFA 23 in-game attribute

The debate of who is better between Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe will go on for years to come.

It can be hard to properly compare top quality players who apply their craft in different leagues and countries, but, one way to see the difference between the two is to look at the opinion of EA Sports through their FIFA ratings.

In terms of overall rating, the gap between the two stays the same as last year. The new edition of FIFA still has Kylian Mbappe at an overall of 91, three ratings higher than Erling Haaland at 88, though, when looking deeper, it can be interesting to compare the two stat by stat.

Using EA Sports’ Ratings Database, we can check each in-game stat to see who comes out on top and wins the most individual battles.

It’s unsurprising that Mbappe leads the way in pace.

He’s always had the ability to speed past a defender while the sheer difference in Haaland’s acceleration (82) and sprint speed (94) suggests he takes an extra few seconds to reach his top speed. Though, his dominating strength is shown with a huge difference in stats.

Who is better on FIFA 23? Mbappe or Haaland?

Final scores: Mbappe – 19 vs Haaland – 9

It seems that EA Sports believe that Mbappe is the better player out of the two, without there being much competition between them.

This may come as a surprise, especially given Haaland’s recent move to Manchester City where he has ripped up the Premier League.

This doesn’t suggest Haaland’s FIFA 23 card is poor by any means and he’s bound to score bundles of goals for any player’s Ultimate Team.
