FIFA 19 UCL Team of the Group Stage Predictions | FUT TOTGS [UPDATED]

EA Sports have announced the official release date and time of the UEFA Champions League Team of the Group Stage promotion in FIFA 19’s popular Ultimate Team mode.

According to the announcement image that pops up when loading into FUT, the TOTGS cards will be released on Friday, December 7 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT.


Although the exact number of cards that will be released is not yet known, we’re expecting a full squad 24 cards that will be available in packs starting from the times listed above. 

Additionally, EA may also offer some of the cards through Squad Building Challenges and/or Weekly Objectives, and there may even be additional untradeable TOTGS cards released that are not part of the tradeable collection. 


As for packs, players should expect there to be promotional packs released throughout the time that the TOTGS cards will be available, including Rare Player Packs (50K), Jumbo Rare Players Packs (100K), and Ultimate Packs (125K).

The first three players have been officially announced by EA, and they are 89-rated Gareth Bale, 95-rated Messi, and 94-rated Neymar, the latter two having been given position changes to RW and CAM respectively.

Prior to this announcement, there was a flurry of predictions going around social media and Reddit about which cards will be included in the TOTGS.


Here is one set of predictions, courtesy of @FIFA_Naticos, who believes that a strong set of high rated cards will be released for this year’s promotion. Keep in mind that the above announcement of the three new cards was made after this prediction was posted. 

@FUTPanther has predicted a more balanced set of cards, while also including several of the Live Dynamic UCL Items, such as Ajax’s Tagliafico, Atletico Madrid’s Griezmann, Manchester City’s Mahrez, and Schalke 04’s Sane. 

As mentioned above, EA could provide some untradeable TOTGS cards that are not part of the set released for packs, which could be redeemed through SBCs and/or weekly objectives.


Twitter user @SimplBlue88 has come up with a concept for this, and he’s theorized that EA will release Olympique Lyonnais’ Cornet as an untradeable card, along with the likes of Liverpool’s Milner and Tottenham’s Lamela.



Every year, EA Sports release a promotion that includes upgraded cards of players that performed well in the Group Stage of that season’s UEFA Champions League.

In prior years, since EA did not have the licensing to UEFA tournaments, this promotion was simply called the Team of the Group Stage and had no formal mention or affiliation with the UCL.

However, with EA now owning the UEFA licensing, this year’s promotion will be the first ever to include official UCL card designs and promotional graphics, adding a layer of authenticity to what should already be a hyped event. 


FIFA 21 TOTW 2 live: Lewandowski, Haaland, Kane, Saint-Maximin, more

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

The full Team of the Week #2 in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team!

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.
