EA Sports’ Ratings Refresh campaign has come to an end and it’s seen a number of RB Leipzig players receive large boosts to their FUT 17 ratings. Two of their big-name stars Emil Forsberg and Naby Keita have been beneficiaries of the permanent update to their ratings, whilst unsung hero Bernardo has also benefited from a huge upgrade by EA Sports.
Scoring or assisting 17 goals in just 18 Bundesliga appearances this season, Forsberg has been one of the revelations of the campaign.
The Sweden international enjoyed an amazing run of providing eight goals in four games for the promoted side in November and December, as well as scoring two since the turn of the year. This consistent form has now been rewarded by EA, who have increased his FUT 17 rating by three to 79.

One of the breakthrough stars of the 2016/17 season, Keita has featured in all but two games this campaign as Leipzig look to put the pressure on leaders Bayern Munich.
The central midfielder has contributed to his side’s title challenge with four goals and seven assists, and his new FUT 17 rating now begins to reflect his importance at 78. Profound increases in his dribbling and passing values demonstrate where the Guinea international’s strengths lie.
Watch: The unstoppable rise of Leipzig's own midfield maestro Keita:
The Brazilian right-back fought his way into the Leipzig team early in the season following his arrival from Austria and has remained there ever since when fit. Not always a player who takes the plaudits, his efforts have not gone unnoticed by EA Sports, who have increased the 21-year-old’s rating by a massive ten points.
His club have been the surprise package of the season, and it appears that Bernardo has caught people cold too as all his values have increased substantially since the start of the campaign.
