Players have been doing everything they can to play FIFA 20 before its release, testing the demo version and clamoring for the EA Access trial to go live, but if you’re scouting out potential starter Ultimate Teams then the Ligue 1 could be a great place to start. 

The top French division is the home for some of the best players around Europe and has been for many years due to the resurgence of Paris Saint Germain, who splashed out around $250 million to bring Brazilian forward Neymar Jr to the club in August 2017 and are always looking to match the quality of football’s elite.

However, it’s not only PSG players who dominate the top-rated player standings in the Ligue 1. In fact, there are a wide variety of high rated options, in terms of overall, who could be perfect additions to any player’s Ultimate Team squads – or even serve as solid Career Mode signings.

EA SPORTS FIFAAs expected, there are a lot of PSG players on this list.

With the likes of PSG, Monaco, Marseille and Olympique Lyonnais world-renowned football teams already, let’s take a look at how much representation each of them have in the top-rated standings for FIFA 20 – courtesy of the Futwiz database.

Forwards

  • Neymar Jr – PSG – 92 rated
  • Kylian Mbappe – PSG – 89 rated

  • Florian Thauvin – Marseille – 83 rated

In comparison to the top ratings of other major football leagues, including the Premier League, Serie A and even La Liga, there’s no doubt that the average overall in the Ligue 1 is a little lower – particularly in midfield. 

However, as seen with some of the incredible attacking and defensive player ratings, there’s no doubt that an Ultimate Team featuring many of these players would be a force to be reckoned with. Just look at some of these attacking options.

The full FIFA 20 game will be officially released on September 24, but if you would like to get your hands on the title early, read more about the EA Access trial here.

EA SPORTS have rolled out a new Team of the Week-themed SBC in FIFA 21, allowing you to stock up on TOTW players. So, here’s what you need to know.

For the most part, squad building challenges – or SBCs – are focused on giving FIFA fans the chance to unlock special variant cards of their favorite players. 

These are usually like Player of the Month, Flashback, Player Moments, Road to the Final, or a number of different promos, but EA also sprinkles in something different at times too. These unique SBCs can be focused on cosmetics like kits, badges, and stadium upgrades – but there are also the ‘lucky bag’ type SBCs too. 

These SBCs come out at different points of the seasons, and the rewards are either completely random or locked to one particular set of cards. This time around, it’s all about Team of the Week.

We’ve already seen stars like Erling Haaland receive TOTW cards in FIFA 21, but that doesn’t stop them from getting multiple.

Current TOTW Upgrade FIFA 21 SBC requirements

The SBC, called the Current TOTW Upgrade, isn’t all that difficult to grasp. You’ve got to build one squad, and in return, you’ll be given a Team of the Week pack. Unlike the previous TOTW Upgrade, the pack you get for this SBC is locked to the week you open it – rather than the past few weeks. 

With the reward being pretty random – there is no set rating for the player you’ll receive – EA haven’t rolled out an entirely difficult SBC. No, it’s just an 83-rated team, so you can hand over quite a bit of fodder to complete it, if you’ve got unusable cards in your club. 

You will, though, need to also have at least 50 team chemistry when its all said and done – so it can’t just a pile of random cards. But, again, it isn’t difficult. 

  • Current TOTW Upgrade: Min.83 Squad Rating, Min. 50 Team Chemistry, 11 players in the squad. Reward: TOTW Pack. 

Cheap solutions for FIFA 21 Current TOTW Upgrade SBC

Now, if you haven’t got useless cards upon useless cards stocked in your club, you will have to fork out to get the SBC completed. Though, it’s not incredibly expensive.

According to FUTBin, starting it from scratch will cost around 20,000-24,000 coins. But, we’ve got a few solutions that should save you a few coins too. 

Aside from bagging a guaranteed TOTW Card, the SBC is repeatable, so you can try your lcuk over and over – providing you have the coins or cards to do so.
