The next Summer Showdown Squad Building Challenges (SBC) are available in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team, featuring Vinicius Junior and Darwin Machis, and we’ve got the solutions, in-game stats, total cost, and everything else you need to complete them.

The Summer Heat promo continues to roll on in FUT 20, as EA SPORTS have released another set of Summer Showdown SBCs. The way these work is two players are chosen from teams that are set to face each other, and the one from the winning side receives +3 overall boost, unless there’s a draw – in which case they both get +1.

In this latest set, which was released on July 6, the two chosen players are Real Madrid’s Vinicius Jr and Granada’s Darwin Machis, but whether one gets the full boost or they both share it won’t be decided until their teams clash on Monday, July 13.

That’s not to say that doing their SBCs would be a waste if one side loses to the other; the cards themselves are already considerably upgraded, as both feature a 92 rating before any additional boosts kick in.

This is Vinicius Jr’s fourth card in FUT 20, and his highest-rated yet, by far. The 92-rating gives him impeccable stats when it comes to pace, shooting, and dribbling, all of which would become even more impressive shout Real Madrid defeat Granada next Monday.

Add that to the fact that he’s got five-star skill moves and a four-star weak foot, and you’ve got a player that can terrorize opposing defenses from the wing or striker positions, depending on how you like to set up your team.

As for Machis, the Venezuelan-born attacker isn’t exactly someone that most would consider when building their squads, even at the earliest stages of the game. However, this new Summer Heat version is actually quite strong, and if Granda somehow pull an upset vs Los Blancos, it could become one of the best striker options in La Liga.

There are three squad building components, which currently comes out to about 247,000 coins on PS4, 248,000 on Xbox One, and 243,000 on Origin PC, according to FUTBIN.

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.
