As part of the new Summer Heat promo in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team, EA SPORTS have released a special SBC for Tanguy Ndombele and Objectives for Ferland Mendy, who actually has three new versions in the game.

Summer Heat is the newest event in FUT 20, jam-packed with new content for players to enjoy. One of the rewards it offers is called ‘Fan Favorites,’ which are popular untradeable cards from past SBCs and Objectives released again with even further boosted stats and upgrades.

The first two Fan Favorites to be rolled out are Ndombele, which comes via an SBC, and Real Madrid’s Mendy, based on his popular FUTMAS card from back in December. Everything you need to unlock both can be found below, including the cheapest solutions, in-game stats, and more.

Ndombele & Mendy Summer Heat in-game stats

Ndombele’s card is the definition of a top-notch box-to-box CM, featuring some incredible all-around stats. The Tottenham midfielder hadn’t received any upgrades to his cards up to this point, so this is a whopping +12 overall jump from his base version.

The pace, dribbling, and physicality categories really catch the eye, filled with 90+ stats that give the impression that this is a card that’ll dominate in all facets of the game.

As for Ferland Mendy, well, he actually has three new versions in the game, all upgrades from the FUTMAS SBC card that seemingly everyone has used at some point. Not only are his stats boosted in a major way, but EA went ahead and further increased the pace of all three shortly after release, while also giving the 89 and 93 variants five-star skills.

Mendy Summer Heat Objectives

The way Mendy’s Summer Heat Objectives work is that you’ll first need to unlock the 85-rated FUTMAS version, if you haven’t already, because you’ll need it to then unlock the newer cards.

In fact, each time you unlock a higher-rated version, you’ll have to use that one in your squad to go for the next Objective(s), all the way until you’ve completed all of them.

  • Rival 5: Win five Rivals matches to earn 85-rated FUTMAS Mendy.
  • Skilled footing: Score in three separate Rivals matches using players with minimum four-star skill moves and minimum five-star weak foot with 85 FUTMAS Mendy in your starting squad.
  • LaLiga lineup: Play 10 Rivals matches with 85  FUTMAS Mendy and minimum six LaLiga players in your starting squad, to earn 87 Summer Heat Mendy.
  • Curated crossing: Assist from a cross using 87-rated Summer Heat Mendy in three separate Rivals matches.
  • Ferland force: Score an outside of the box goal in two separate Rivals matches using French players with minimum four-star skill moves and minimum five-star weak foot with 87 Summer Heat Mendy in your starting squad.
  • French formation: Play 12 Rivals matches with 87 Summer Heat Mendy and minimum six French players in your starting squad to earn 89 Summer Heat Mendy with improved five-star skill moves.
  • Winning wing-back: Score using 89 Summer Heat Mendy in four Rivals wins.
  • Clean sheet success: Keep a clean sheet and win by a goal difference of at least two goals in a Rivals win with 89 Summer Heat Mendy in your starting squad.
  • Maestro Mendy: Assist using 89 Summer Heat Mendy in 10 separate Rivals wins to earn 93-rated Summer Heat Mendy.

You’ll have plenty of time to unlock all the Summer Heat versions of Mendy, as these Objectives will be available until the current season of FUT runs out in about four weeks. As for Ndombele, the time-limit is a lot more strict, as the SBC will be expiring on Wednesday, June 24.

How to complete Alessandrini Flashback SBC in FIFA 21: solutions & cost

A new Flashback SBC is available in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team for French Winger Romain Alessandrini, celebrating his goal-studded 2017-2018 seasons for the Los Angeles Galaxy.

SBC’s are a great way to fill out your card collection in FUT, and if you’re in need of something new on the outside, Alessandrini might be just the man you’re looking for.

Now playing for Chinese Super League team Qingdao Huanghai, the Winger notched two of the best seasons in his career while playing for the LA Galaxy in the MLS (13 goals in 2017 & 11 in 2018), which this new Flashback card harkens back to.

Fans who played Ultimate Team in FIFA 18 will remember how good the Frenchman’s cards were – almost everyone had either his first or second In-Form on their bench as a super-sub, and his nationality made it easier to even start him, for those who wanted to.

Stats for Alessandrini’s Flashback SBC in FIFA 21.

To start off, just check out that 92 Pace on an 85 OVR card. You really couldn’t ask for anything better with 91 Sprint Speed and 93 Acceleration. Shooting, Passing, and Dribbling also all clock in at high to mid-80s as well.

Defending and Physicality are his weak points, but the good news is that there’s only one single challenge you have to knock out in order to wrap up this SBC and grab the fleet-footed Frenchman’s new card for yourself.

Altogether these tasks should run you around 92,000 to about 105,000 FUT Coins to complete, which isn’t too shabby at all considering the Acceleration and Sprint Speed stats he’s packing. The full requirements are listed below:

Romain Alessandrini

  • Number of players from France: Min 1
  • IF Players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 85
  • Team Chemistry: Min 70
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11

Below are a couple of the cheapest solutions we’ve found to this Flashback SBC, and to make things even easier they don’t require any loyalty to complete.

Now that you know all there is to know about how to knock this SBC out, the only question left is: is it worth it? Looking at the stats alone, especially that 92 Pace, we’d definitely say this SBC is worthwhile if you can afford to complete it.

If you can muster up the coinage prior to the challenge expiring on Friday, December 4, then definitely look into it because this could be a highly-coveted super-sub that you can’t get your hands on later.
