Here’s what you need to know about the FIFA 22 Serie A POTM cards, and how you can unlock them through SBCs.
September Serie A POTM winner: Kalidou Koulibaly
Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly got the nod for Serie A’s first-ever POTM card, with the Senegalese star netting two goals and an assist across September. He has also been a big factor in Napoli’s seven-game winning run.

Koulibaly’s 88-rated POTM card is a +2 upgrade on his base card, and really helps out with some of the centre back’s lacking stats. A Passing increase to 54 makes him a bit better of getting the ball out of defense.
However, where this card shines in its sweeper coverage of the box. With 83 Pace, 89 Defending, and 87 Physical, he is a dominant force in the back third — especially when you consider he stands at 6’2”.

If you want to grab Koulibaly’s card, you’ll need to complete an SBC and fill out four squads. They’re not insanely expensive — except for the 87-rated squad — but it’ll set you back around 160,000 coins all up.
You have until October 21 to complete the Koulibaly POTM before the next Serie A star comes along.
