Three untradeable cards have been released as part of FUT Birthday Team 2 in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team, and we’ve got the Objectives, cheapest SBC solutions, in-game stats, and everything else you need to unlock them.

EA SPORTS released the second squad of FUT Birthday cards on April 3, featuring 14 new players with boosted stats and upgrades to their weak foot, skill moves, or both.

As is usually the case with such promos, three of the new cards are available as untradeables, including an 87-rated Malang Sarr, 88 Tiemoue Bakayoko, and 86 Jhon Cordoba.

Sarr can be unlocked by completing his new SBC, while Bakayoko and Cordoba are both available through Objectives. You can find all of the details about these cards and how to get them below.

The upgrade to Sarr is as big as it gets, transforming him from a 76-rated non-rare gold to an 87-rated special item with absolutely monstrous stats.

While the five-star skills and four-star weak foot are certainly nice additions, players will be more interested in the Frenchman’s 82 pace, 86 defending, and 91 physical, which come in addition to his 81 passing and 80 dribbling.

As for Bakayoko, the former Chelsea and AC Milan midfielder now boasts a five-star weak foot, as well as stats that make him look like the highly-overpowered CDM that he was back in FIFA 18, during his days with the London club.

He’s the prototypical meta defensive midfielder, featuring great passing, dribbling, defending, and physical to go along with his more-than-decent pace.

Last but not least there’s Cordoba, whose 86 rating doesn’t really do his stellar stats justice. With over 90 pace, reliable shooting, great dribbling, and strong physical, the Colombian forward’s card looks like an absolute beast.

The next FIFA 21 Team of the Week, TOTW 9, is now on its way in Ultimate Team ⁠— here’s everything we know about the new upgraded team so far, including any EA SPORTS leaks, the promo’s release time, and more.

Last week’s TOTW, the eighth in FIFA 21, was undoubtedly the best we’ve seen yet, so it’s going to be a tough ask for Team of the Week 9 to go one better.

There’s a good chance it could come close, however, is a huge stack of international stars in line for IF cards, including Cristiano Ronaldo, cover star Erling Haaland, and Romeulu Lukaku. Zlatan Ibrahimovic ⁠— who is planning to sue EA over his rights ⁠— could be included too.

Forwards weren’t the only stars to shine this week either. Tottenham shot-stopper Hugo Lloris and Everton’s Lucas Digne could get in-form cards, while Monaco centerpiece Cesc Fabregas pulled the strings in a 3-2 win over PSG.

Here’s everything we know about the mid-week promo so far, including when the newest Team of the Week lineup will drop in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, possible in-form card leaks, and Dexerto’s weekly TOTW predictions.

Team of the Week 9 start time

On November 25, FIFA publishers EA SPORTS will release the ninth batch of Team of the Week cards for this year. The TOTW 9 promo will begin at 6pm (UK time), as per usual.

That means 6pm BST, 12pm CT, 1pm EST, 3am AEST for those around the world.

These boosted TOTW 9 player upgrades will be announced at the same time as they drop in-game. Keep your eyes peeled on our official Twitter account — we always make sure to share the new FIFA 21 team as soon as it’s live.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 9 leaks

So far, EA SPORTS hasn’t let any early Team of the Week 9 cards slip ⁠— after TOTW 7, when they accidentally shipped 11 upgraded cards early, they’re likely playing it extra safe.

If any leaks drop ahead of the official TOTW 9 reveal, we’ll keep you updated.
