FIFA 21’s FUT Champs event goes live every weekend allowing players of all skill levels to compete for rewards. The question is, which meta players should you buy and how much do they cost?
The Weekend League is an event FIFA players look forward to competing in every weekend. The goal is to see how many wins a player can pick up in 30 online FUT Champs matches. The more wins you get, the better the rewards they receive at the end of the event.
As expected, FUT Champs matches are taken very seriously by much of the community, and competitors look for any advantages they can to pick up more wins. Well, one of the best methods for winning more games is to own the right cards before the Weekend League begins.
Each week we’re going to pick seven players you should consider adding to your squad before this weekend’s FUT Champs event, and include them here in this list. All prices in this article have been taken from FUTWIZ and are relevant at the time of writing.
Best FIFA 21 players to buy for FUT Champs
Price: 5k – 7k
Valverde is a great midfielder with a set of well-rounded stats. His standout attributes are his pace, acceleration, and physicality on the ball. On top of this, with 77 defense he makes a great option for CDM if necessary. At 5-7k, it’s hard to find a better midfield player for the price. Take a look at your squad and see if you can find a space for him, because you won’t regret it.
Price: 69k – 100k
Another Real Madrid player, Mendy is a great addition to any defense and offers amazing pace and physicality. Playing without speedy full backs in this game is a crime, but that’s where the Frenchman has you sorted.
It’s also worth noting that he would make an incredible pairing with Valverde in your squad. There’s no denying that Mendy is on the pricier side, but if you have the coins, he’s a great investment ready for the Weekend League. Many meta players are also French, so connections are strong with this one.
Price: 11k – 14k
If you’re looking for a clinical finisher and don’t want to spend too many coins, look no further than Dembele. Not many have a better combination of sprint speed, acceleration, and finishing for this price – with five star weak foot to boot. He’s guaranteed to add a spark to your team.
Price: 156k – 230k
In FIFA 21, Rashford does it all. With great pace and clinical finishing ability, Rashford is a solid pickup for this weekend’s FUT Champs event. An issue with some players is their ability to maintain energy throughout an entire match, with Rashford that’s never a worry as his card has an impressive 87 stamina. If you’ve got the coins, splash out on this speedster.
Price: 62k – 90k
Joe Gomez is a center half that can keep up with strikers and bully them off the ball. If you find your defense is getting outpaced, or possibly carved open a little too easily, Gomez might be the solution. He pairs speed with physicality and can be a menace for strikers to deal with. Again, Gomez isn’t cheap but he’s a worthwhile pickup if you can afford him.
Price: 200k – 260k
Another Real Madrid player, Varane is a center-half you can always depend on. Like Gomez, Varane’s 82 pace means he can keep up with strikers and thwart dangerous attacking play. His 87 defending stat makes it difficult for strikers to get past him and his ability to intercept the ball is one of his standout attributes. Consider picking him up for the Weekend League if your defense is lacking.
Price: 98k – 120k
If your team is lacking firepower in front of goal then Werner may be the perfect pickup before this weekend – if you don’t have him already. With 91 pace and 85 shooting, Werner will consistently put the ball in the back of the net and just seems to have an aura about him this year.
Sometimes it feels more difficult to nudge him off the ball than other strikers of a similar profile. For just over 100k, he’s great value and someone you should consider adding to your squad.
Hopefully, these players will aid you in FUT Champs this weekend and get you as many wins as possible. For more guides and all the latest FIFA news, stick with here at Dexerto.
