The newest FIFA 20 Summer Heat challenges have been revealed, and the double-trouble SBC is a doozy. FUT fans can get their hands on Torino stars Simone Verdi and Andrea Belotti in the latest “Dynamic Duos” SBC challenge.

The mega-popular Summer Heat promo, which looks to be ending the FIFA 20 cycle instead of the usual FUTTIES event, has been slowly releasing ultra-boosted star players across the last month, including Clement Lenglet, David Luiz, Bernardo Silva, and plenty more.

One of the package-deal releases EA SPORTS has unveiled during the ongoing game-ending promo has been Dynamic Duos. Liverpool icons Georginio Wijnaldum and Divock Origi were the last combo SBC; now Belotti and Verdi are next.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Italian striker and midfielder challenges, from how much the SBC will cost, how strong the two newest FIFA 20 cards are, and how to get the puzzles done on the cheap.

Belotti & Verdi Summer Heat in-game stats

No reason to sugarcoat these ones: they’re two of the strongest Summer Heat cards we’ve seen in FIFA 20 yet. Andrea Belotti especially is a must-buy striker pick for anyone who has built a Serie A team in Ultimate Team this year.

Belotti was the scourge of many FIFA fans at the beginning of the year too. His base card ⁠— a simple 82 striker card ⁠— ran rampant in the early stages of the title. All up the Italian star was played in 61,632 games, and scored 38,211 goals.

The only downside for this upgrade is Belotti’s relatively low passing stat. His gold release had 57 PAS, so it’s no surprise this Summer Heat boost only makes it to 76 (a +19 boost) but it’s still a weak point in an otherwise brilliant card.

Verdi’s release is a little less spectacular, but not by much! He beats out Il Gallo’s hefty pace stats (97 PAC), and his passing (93 PAS) is in the upper echelons too. Verdi’s physical (72) and defense (56) leave a bit to be desired for a midfielder, however.

If you have him play behind your strike force though, the 5’7” Italian wizard will run rampant, and that’s a guarantee. He boasts top-tier 99 ratings in agility, balance, and shot power, and is near-perfect in acceleration and long shots too.

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.

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 16-21: OTW Team 2
  • 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.
