The major difference between FIFA & PES is that the former takes an arcade-like approach while the latter is a simulation of real football. Also, Konami, the publisher of PES franchise, has not been able to acquire the rights to licensed leagues & teams compared to its competitor Electronic Arts (EA). FIFA has acquired the rights to official football clubs, brands & more that let FIFA to use actual team names, actual player names, jerseys, etc. So, FIFA looks more real as compared to PES. 
Konami has improved graphics of PES 2022 & its gameplay is smoother. In terms of realism, PES 2022 has done things right with its graphical animations & they have precisely shown the fluidity of football. 

FIFA 21 beats eFootball PES 2021:

FIFA 2021 was amazing with its powerful attacking play, real graphics & footballer similarities, along with many modes to keep fans hooked & busy for longer periods.
We expect more from Electronic Arts with FIFA 2022. FIFA 21 transition from PS4 & Xbox One to PS5 & Xbox Series X, which was a good move from EA because Konami on the other hand released an update for PES known as eFootball PES 2021 season update which was available for low cost. They did not transition to next-gen consoles & did not launch a full game which surprised many fans. FIFA 21 easily won against eFootball PES 2021 because it delivered what fans wanted.

PES Series Successes & Failures:

PES series was once the top football game series. It launched on PS1 & was a most popular football game on both PS1 & PS2. Then things went wrong with Konami. The series flopped when Konami transitioned to PS3 & Xbox 360, & FIFA took the lead. Konami must avoid past mistakes & provide authentic gameplay on PS5 & Xbox Series X. They did not launch eFootball PES 2021 on PS5 & Xbox Series X, so it will be a difficult challenge for Konami to transition to next-gen hardware. They took a break of 1 year to deliver what fans are expecting from them.
