Arsenal star Bernd Leno has had his FIFA 20 Ultimate Team starting lineup revealed and he’s got a team that would certainly dominate FUT Champs Weekend League.

Since joining Arsenal from Bayer Leverkusen in 2018, Bernd Leno has had the unenviable job of starring in the spot left by Petr Cech in making sure the Gunners are keeping clean sheets and giving his teammates confidence in their backline.


The German has managed to do that, becoming a key player under Unai Emery before taking another step-up under the watch of Mikel Arteta. The 28-year-old had managed to keep 8 clean sheets before the 2019/2020 Premier League season was drawn to a halt but that gives him plenty of time to play FIFA – if he so chooses.

Leno now keeps clean sheets between the sticks for Arsenal.

Like many of his fellow professional players, Leno has a pretty outrageous FIFA Ultimate Team lineup, with his own 99-rated custom pro player card providing a solid final player to beat against opposition attackers.


Aside from himself, the Arsenal shot-stopper has plenty of icon cards like Ruud Gullit, Eusebio, and Ronaldo. Though, it isn’t all about the highly-rated cards. Leno has also got the base versions of Nelson Semedo and Virgil Van Dijk in his defensive backline – as well as the Shapeshifter variant of Ricardo Pereira at left-back. 

Bernd Leno’s FIFA 20 Ultimate Team Starting XI

  • GK: Bernd Leno – 99
  • LB: Ricardo Pereira – 88
  • RB: Nelson Semedo – 82
  • CB: Virgil Van Dijk – 90
  • CB: Fernando Hierro – 86
  • CM: N’Golo Kante – 89
  • CM: Ruud Gullit – 90
  • CM: Eusebio – 91
  • RF: Cristiano Ronaldo – 93
  • LF: Kylian Mbappe – 90
  • ST: Ronaldo – 94

The Arsenal keeper’s team is pretty strong.

Though his lineup is stronger than most, the Arsenal ‘keeper could still make a few adjustments. There are enough Van Dijk and Mbappe in-forms to upgrade to, as well as picking up a better rated Hierro.

At the end of the day, though, it is Leno’s team and whatever works for him is what he’s going to rock with.

With the launch of FIFA 21 seeing millions of football fans across the globe start competing to try and become the best in FIFA Ultimate Team, the first Ones to Watch promo team is fast approaching. Here’s everything we know about it.

Ones to Watch follows players that have transferred to other teams, promising them upgrades for every time they make a new promo such as Team of the Week, Team of the Tournament and more.


As such, OTW cards are highly desirable, and if you get a decent one at the start of the year, you could see a lot of improvements as the season unravels.

So, here’s everything we know about Ones to Watch in FIFA 21, including release dates and times, the players included and more.

FIFA 21 Ones to Watch release date & time

We now know that the Ones to Watch is going to be up and running soon, with its first availability on the weekend of launch. Here are the dates for the cards being released:

  • October 9-16: OTW Team 1

  • October 21 onwards: OTW Teams 1 and 2

It’s worth noting that you will get a Guaranteed OTW Item if you preordered the game before August 14, and the card you receive will be based on which date you open the pack, in correspondence with the dates above.

Most FIFA promos drop at 6pm BST (11am PDT / 12pm EDT / 5am AEDT), so expect packs to be available from that time starting October 9.
