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.

FIFA 21 TOTW 2 live: Lewandowski, Haaland, Kane, Saint-Maximin, more

EA SPORTS have released the second batch of Team of the Week players in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and it looks like there are some exciting cards up for grabs this week.

Following the completion of another busy game week across football’s top-flight leagues, a new set of TOTW players has been released, featuring some huge names and valuable cards.


Dexerto made a number of predictions earlier in the week, included at the bottom of this article, so let’s see how they stacked up with leaks and ultimately, the official team as well.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2

The full Team of the Week #2 in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team!

Just as with the first Team of the Week, the second TOTW squad is stacked with top talent, such as the likes of Lewandowski, Courtois, Kane, and Haaland. While not as high-rated as those studs, the likes of Milan’s Hernandez and Newcastle’s Saint-Maximin should also draw a lot of attention as being “meta” players.


Here are some of the players you might be interested in:

  • Erling Haaland (86)
  • Robert Lewandowski (92)
  • Harry Kane (89)
  • Thibaut Courtois (90)
  • Ben Chilwell (84)
  • Theo Hernandez (83)
  • Jack Grealish (83)
  • Ollie Watkins (81)
  • Allan Saint-Maximin (83)
  • Renato Sanchez (82)
  • Marcel Halstenberg (84)

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2 leaked

Ahead of EA SPORTS confirming the full TOTW #2, the full squad was claimed to have been leaked – and the leaker even managed to get his hands on the same image that EA would end up tweeting out.

When did TOTW 2 go live in FIFA 21?

EA SPORTS revealed this next FIFA Team of the Week squad at 6PM (UK time) Wednesday, October 7, 2020. As per usual, they were announced and droped into packs at 6pm BST / 12pm CT / 1pm EST / 3am AEST.


These boosted player upgrades are now being announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21, unlike other years where we knew about them three hours prior.

FIFA 20 Team of the Week 32 predictions

What a week! Competitions around the world have come back for the 2020/21 season, soon after the end of last year’s staggering campaign. The back-to-back nature of these seasons, it seems, is going to lead to some exciting games.

The biggest news from the Premier League this week was Aston Villa and Tottenham each dolling out huge defeats for Liverpool and Manchester United respectively. Ollie Watkins scored three and assisted one as he led the Villans to a 7–2 victory over the champions, while Heung Min Son was unplayable against United.


There were a number of other standout performances across the weekend too. Neymar Jr. was at his electric best against Angers, while FIFA 21 cover star Erling Haaland kept up his goalscoring record in a 4–0 win over Freiburg on Saturday.
