Eduardo Salvio, winger for Boca Juniors and Argentina, has had his Ultimate Team revealed after coming up against a Redditor in FIFA 20’s most recent FUT Champions Weekend League competition. 

Argentina’s Eduardo Salvio has played for a number of Europe’s most prestigious clubs. He went from Atletico Madrid to Benfica, spending just shy of 9 years at the Portuguese giants. His time in Portugal came to an end in 2019, when he secured himself a move back to his home country and Boca Juniors.

Boca do not actually feature in FIFA 20; playing under the name Buenos Aires as a result of licensing disputes. However, Salvio himself has got some pretty insane cards in FIFA 20, including a 91 OVR Libertadores card.

It seems like Salvio is spending his time in isolation the same as most of us – playing video games. He has even been playing some FIFA 20 with Argentina teammate Sergio Agüero, who recently hit out at EA over their handling of the title.

On April 29, one FIFA 20 fan shared Salvio’s Ultimate Team after coming up against the Argentine in an online match.

Salvio’s starting XI, managed by Pep Guardiola, is led by his 99 OVR personalized pro player card, which sits at RW in a 4-3-3 formation. He is joined up-front by Ronaldo and Neymar, with Leroy Sane, Kevin De-Bruyne, and Michael Essien making up the midfield three.

The Argentine’s back five consists of Ricardo Pereira, Virgil Van-Dijk, Nicolas Otamendi, Kyle Walker, and Alisson. It is a seriously impressive squad, coming in at 91 OVR.

  • GK: Alisson – 97
  • RB: Kyle Walker – 88
  • CB: Virgil Van Dijk – 90
  • CB: Nicolas Otamendi – 85
  • LB: Ricardo Pereira – 88
  • CDM: Kevin De Bruyne – 94
  • CM: Leroy Sane – 91
  • CM: Michael Essien – 90
  • LW: Neymar – 92
  • ST: Ronaldo – 94
  • RW: Eduardo Salvio – 99

In terms of areas to improve in Salvio’s squad, there really aren’t that many. We’d probably recommend swapping to a version of 4-3-3 with 3 CMs, so KDB doesn’t have to play in such a defensive role. That’s about it. As pro player line ups go, this is up there with the best we’ve seen.

EA SPORTS have released the second batch of Team of the Week players in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and it looks like there are some exciting cards up for grabs this week.

Following the completion of another busy game week across football’s top-flight leagues, a new set of TOTW players has been released, featuring some huge names and valuable cards.

Dexerto made a number of predictions earlier in the week, included at the bottom of this article, so let’s see how they stacked up with leaks and ultimately, the official team as well.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2

Just as with the first Team of the Week, the second TOTW squad is stacked with top talent, such as the likes of Lewandowski, Courtois, Kane, and Haaland. While not as high-rated as those studs, the likes of Milan’s Hernandez and Newcastle’s Saint-Maximin should also draw a lot of attention as being “meta” players.

Here are some of the players you might be interested in:

  • Erling Haaland (86)
  • Robert Lewandowski (92)
  • Harry Kane (89)
  • Thibaut Courtois (90)
  • Ben Chilwell (84)
  • Theo Hernandez (83)
  • Jack Grealish (83)
  • Ollie Watkins (81)
  • Allan Saint-Maximin (83)
  • Renato Sanchez (82)
  • Marcel Halstenberg (84)

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2 leaked

Ahead of EA SPORTS confirming the full TOTW #2, the full squad was claimed to have been leaked – and the leaker even managed to get his hands on the same image that EA would end up tweeting out.

When did TOTW 2 go live in FIFA 21?

EA SPORTS revealed this next FIFA Team of the Week squad at 6PM (UK time) Wednesday, October 7, 2020. As per usual, they were announced and droped into packs at 6pm BST / 12pm CT / 1pm EST / 3am AEST.

These boosted player upgrades are now being announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21, unlike other years where we knew about them three hours prior.

FIFA 20 Team of the Week 32 predictions

What a week! Competitions around the world have come back for the 2020/21 season, soon after the end of last year’s staggering campaign. The back-to-back nature of these seasons, it seems, is going to lead to some exciting games.

The biggest news from the Premier League this week was Aston Villa and Tottenham each dolling out huge defeats for Liverpool and Manchester United respectively. Ollie Watkins scored three and assisted one as he led the Villans to a 7–2 victory over the champions, while Heung Min Son was unplayable against United.

There were a number of other standout performances across the weekend too. Neymar Jr. was at his electric best against Angers, while FIFA 21 cover star Erling Haaland kept up his goalscoring record in a 4–0 win over Freiburg on Saturday.

Here are our TOTW 2 predictions, so let’s see how many we got right this week!
