FIFA 21 Ultimate Team is underway, and everyone is busy grinding away on Squad Battles and Division Rivals to build their dream team. But everyone has to start somewhere, and an excellent place to start is our list of “cheap beasts.”

All players have their unique strengths and weaknesses. Naturally, some are more expensive than others, and it’s hard to find FIFA 21 players who are good bang for buck. FUTBIN is an excellent resource, but it can be daunting trying to rummage through all the data.

Here’s a list of some of the cheap beasts we’ve found, including how much they cost and a little bit about what makes them so good.

FIFA 21 Ultimate Team cheap beasts

Hwang Hee Chan (OVR 77) LM – 950 Coins

Hwang Hee Chan is an absolute gun.

He’s been impressive in real life, to the point where he’s earned himself an OTW Card in FIFA 21. But his base card is amazing as well.

It has 79 Dribbling, 95 Shooting, and 71 Passing, which is decent. But what really makes him stand out is his whopping 93 Pace.

Cucurella (OVR 81) LM – 950 Coins

Cucurella doesn’t have one stat that stands out among the rest. But with 81 Pace, 79 Dribbling, 78 Passing, and 74 Physicality, he’s pretty good all-round.

The downside, however, is his dismal 67 Shooting. But considering he only costs 950 coins, he’s a decent early pick-up for a La Liga squad.

Sébastien Haller (OVR 81) ST – 1300 Coins

Premier League players are more expensive than other leagues, and that’s what makes Sébastien Haller all-the-more appealing.

It’s hard to find a striker in the league who is quick, accurate, strong, good at dribbling, and still affordable.

Haller costs a mere 1300 coins and has 82 Physicality, 80 Shooting, 75 Dribbling, and 70 Pace. All in all, this makes him a certified cheap beast in a starter squad.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic (OVR 83) ST – 1500 Coins

The man, the myth, the legend.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is 39 years old and might not be as polished as he used to be. But he’s still an incredible striker, and now that his FUT value has plummeted, he represents great value.

His 88 Shooting is superb, and although he’s slow, he’s pretty good in all the other areas.

It’s hard to find a striker who can shoot as well as him, and for as little as 1500 coins, he’ll strengthen your squad’s attack quite a bit.

Marco Asensio (OVR 82) LW – 1700 Coins

Marco Asensio has it all. He isn’t the strongest midfielder by any stretch of the imagination, but what he lacks in strength, he makes up for in other areas.

He has 83 Dribbling, 81 Passing, 80 Shooting, and 79 Pace, which means he’s a good all-rounder to have for 1700 coins.

Giovani Lo Celso (OVR 82) CM – 2000 Coins

Giovani Lo Celso is surprisingly cheap considering he’s one of the faster CM’s in the Premier League. For 2000 coins, he has an impressive 85 Dribbling, 82 Passing, 77 Shooting, and 77 Pace.

He is decently strong as well with 73 Physicality. All in all, he’s a good pick-up considering how slow some of the other CM’s are.

Willian (OVR 82) RW – 2200 Coins

Willian has slowed down quite a bit in recent years, but he’s still one of the quicker RW’s in the Premier League.

For 2200 coins, he offers 85 Dribbling, 82 Pace, 80 Passing, and 79 Shooting, which is decent value. Of course, he isn’t the quickest winger you can find, but his ball control is almost flawless.

Hirving Lozano (OVR 80) RW – 3000 Coins

Hirving Lozano is one of the quickest RW’s in the Serie A, let alone the game.

He has an impressive 93 Pace on top of other decent stats including 81 Dribbling, 75 Shooting, and 71 Passing. He’s a little more expensive than the other cheap beasts on this list, but only because of how absurdly fast he is.

And with that, our list of FIFA 21 cheap beasts is complete. It boasts a good range of players across different leagues, so there’s sure to be something for everyone.

How to complete FIFA 21 Marquee Matchups SBC Week 4: solutions, cost

Marquee Matchups are back once again in FIFA 21, with two of Europe’s biggest derbies taking centre stage – Barcelona vs Real Madrid and Schalke vs Borussia Dortmund. 

Ever since the Marquee Matchups SBCs were added to FIFA, they’ve typically focused on the biggest games of the weeks. Though, sometimes like in Week 3, you’ve got to look elsewhere. 

After many clubs across the globe let their players depart for international duty, and the Marquee Matchups focused on four European matchups, club action is back for Week 4 – with the focus on some interesting clashes.

These include the first El Clasico of the season between Barcelona and Real Madrid, as well as the first Revierderby between Schalke and Borussia Dortmund. So, let’s get right into it. 

Barcelona vs Real Madrid

First off, the standout game from this round of Marquee Matchups is undoubtedly the Clasico but don’t worry, you won’t need to give up a Messi, Benzema, Hazard, or Ansu Fati to complete this SBC.

No, instead, you just need a player from either club, as well as some others from La Liga to get you to a squad rating of 75. According to FUTBin, this part of the SBC group will cost between 4,000 and 8,000 coins. 

  • Min #1 player from Barcelona or Real Madrid
  • Min #2 players from La Liga Santander 
  • Max 3 leagues
  • Min 75 Squad Rating 
  • Min 85 Team Chemistry

Schalke vs Borussia Dortmund

Moving on and sticking with the other derby – Schalke and Borussia Dortmund. Again, for this SBC, you’ll need a player from either side.

You’ll also need to use players from at least four different clubs while also achieving a Team Chemistry of at least 80. Again, it’s not too expensive, and should set you back between 5,000 and 9,000 coins if you need to start from scratch.

  • Min #1 player from Schalke or Dortmund
  • Min #4 different clubs
  • Max 3 in same league count
  • Min 75 Squad Rating 
  • Min 80 Team Chemistry

Southampton vs Everton

Aside from those two games, there is also an SBC for the matchup between Everton and Southampton – seeing as the Blues are, as of writing, topping the Premier League table. 

You don’t need players from either side, however, for this one – just players from the Premier League and one other league. Yet, you are limited to a maximum of six players from the same club.

Again, it won’t cost all that much. According to FUTBin estimates, it’ll set you back between 5,000 and 8,000 coins if you need to build the whole thing from scratch.

  • Min #2 players from La Liga Santander 
  • Min #2 leagues
  • Max 6 in players from same club
  • Min 74 Squad Rating 
  • Min 75 Team Chemistry

Galatasary vs Trabzonspor

Last but not least, the final game in this SBC group is a matchup between two Turkish sides – Galatasary and Trabzonspor. For this, you’ll need at least one Turkish player, but he doesn’t have to play for either team.

In addition to one Turkish player, you’ll also need at least eight silver players and a minimum of 75 when it comes to Team Chemistry. Like the other three, its pretty cheap, as FUTBin suggests it’ll cost between 5,000 and 9,000 coins.

  • Min #1 player from Turkey
  • Min #8 Silver players
  • Max 5 nations
  • Min 2 rares
  • Min 75 Team Chemistry

All in all, its another set of Marquee Matchups that aren’t incredibly difficult or expensive to complete, and have some nice rewards in store.
