All FIFA 20 OTW cards that won’t get TOTW Moments in-forms

In Team of the Week 27, EA SPORTS replaced the standard TOTW format in FIFA 20 with TOTW Moments, bringing back in-form cards from previous games with an upgrade in FUT 20.

The change was made due to the ongoing global crisis, which put a halt to all major sports leagues worldwide, so it became impossible to grant players in-form cards if there was no way to note which players were in good form.

Of course, bringing back old TOTW cards means certain One to Watch cards this season will be further eligible for upgrades if they had an in-form in FIFA 18 or 19. But, unfortunately, certain OTWs won’t be able to get upgrades as the corresponding week they joined TOTW has passed.

EA SPORTS
TOTW Moments has already provided the game with some wildcards, such as this 87-rated Kyle Walker.

From TOTW 28, there are apparently nine OTW players that aren’t eligible to get a Moments upgrade for the remainder of the season – so don’t get your hopes up if you’re holding on to one of the following players:

  • Aaron Wan-Bissaka
  • Luka Jovic
  • Hirving Lozano
  • Mauro Icardi
  • Christian Pulisic
  • João Félix Sequeira
  • Joelinton
  • Frenkie de Jong
  • Lucas Hernández

This list was collated by 7FOOT7 on Reddit, who has created a handy spreadsheet that lists the weeks in previous titles that all OTW players entered the Team of the Week.

EA SPORTS
Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s OTW isn’t likely to get an upgrade now.

This will no doubt be a disappointment to players who own the aforementioned OTW cards, especially given the fact that many of them could definitely have put in TOTW performances if matches had resumed.

The likes of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Christian Pulisic, and Frenkie de Jong would have been likely contenders to get in-form upgrades during the remainder of the season, and their OTW cards might start losing value thanks to this.

However, there are certain players such as Eden Hazard and Antoine Griezmann that could still be getting upgrades, so don’t lose hope just yet.
