Feyenoord’s Wouter Burger has bizarre FIFA 20 Ultimate Team revealed

Feyenoord and Holland young gun Wouter Burger has had his FIFA 20 Ultimate Team revealed, and it’s one of the strangest outfits we’ve seen from any professional player. 

Currently on loan at second-tier Excelsior, Feyenoord’s Wouter Burger is one of Holland’s most promising young midfielders. Despite struggling for Eredivisie minutes, the 19-year-old has made over 40 appearances for the Netherlands’ youth sides.

It seems Burger is spending his quarantine period like a lot of us – playing EA Sports’ FIFA 20 Weekend League. While some pro players boast insanely strong elevens, Burger’s is an absolutely bizarre mix of players.

Running a 4-5-1 formation, Burger’s front six is pretty strong. R9 Ronaldo leads the line, with Ruud Gullit and Pele playing CAMs. Neymar is at LM and FUT Birthday Angel Di Maria plays RM.

With Burger’s own 99-rated custom card playing CM, you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s one of the best lineups we’ve seen.

Burger’s back 5 though, is completely insane. Virgil Van Dijk is with Joe Gomez for a Liverpool based CB pairing, with Nathan Ake playing totally out of position at RB. Similarly, FUT Champions Theo Hernandez plays at LB, with absolutely no chemistry. To round off the bizarre picks, Roma’s Pau Gomez is playing in goal, also with no chemistry links to the defence.

The Redditor explained that they lost the Division 5 clash 5-3. Maybe the high scoring nature of the game reflects Burger’s truly bizarre defensive lineup. You can check out his full XI below:

  • GK: Pau Gomez – 85
  • RB: Nathan Ake – 80
  • CB: Joe Gomez – 80
  • CB: Virgil Van Dijk – 90
  • LB: Theo Hernandez – 84
  • CM: Wouter Burger – 99
  • LM: Neymar – 92
  • RM: Angel Di Maria – 91
  • CAM: Pele – 95
  • CAM: Ruud Gullit – 90
  • ST: Ronaldo – 94

The areas Burger could improve in are pretty self-explanatory. Put Alisson in goal for chemistry, and Alexander-Arnold at RB to get a full-chemistry Liverpool defence. Then buy a PSG left back and the Dutch midfielder’s defensive problems are gone.

It’s not quite clear what decision-making went into forming that backline, but maybe it’s still a work-in-progress… or hopefully it is, at least.

FIFA 21 is now four weeks in, and that means Team of the Week 4 has arrived in Ultimate Team. Here’s everything we know about the mid-week promo, including the new TOTW 4 players, release time, and more.

Last week, TOTW was all about international football. This time, we’re back to domestic leagues ⁠— something most fans are always happy about ⁠— and football stars around the world got back into the goal-scoring flow, right off the bat.

Here’s everything you need to know about the mid-week promo.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 4

Team of the Week 4 start time

On October 21, FIFA publishers EA SPORTS released the fourth batch of Team of the Week cards for this year’s annual release. The promo began at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM UK, as per usual.

These boosted player upgrades are now announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21, unlike previous years. Keep your eyes peeled on our official Twitter account for full coverage of every TOTW, starting with predictions, leaks, and a countdown.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the difference for Milan against their arch-rivals last weekend.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 4 leaks

As with the last few weeks, a few of the TOTW 4 cards released Wednesday had already been leaked online on Twitter and Reddit. OTW cards Timo Werner, Alessandro Florenzi and Victor Osimhen are all reportedly included.

Here’s the full list of FIFA 21 cards that have leaked:

  • Marcus Rashford
  • Timo Werner
  • Mikel Oyarzabal
  • Zlatan Ibrahimović
  • Alessandro Florenzi
  • Victor Osimhen

The leaks, which were first posted by itsZTradingx on Twitter early on Wednesday morning, also hinted Kylian Mbappé ⁠— who scored twice in a 4–0 win against Nîmes ⁠— won’t actually be included in the TOTW despite his performance.

EA SPORTS also made a bit of bluster on their own too; the FIFA 21 publishers leaked one of the IF cards already, by upgrading Florenzi’s stats a full day before TOTW 4 drops. FIFA fans were quick to pick up on the mistake.
