Heerenveen’s Jordy Bruijn has his FIFA 20 Ultimate Team revealed

SC Heerenveen midfielder Jordy Bruijn has had his FUT 20 starting XI revealed by an opponent, and you might be surprised to see it’s actually quite beatable. 

A number of professional footballers have taken up a new hobby in playing Ultimate Team, since their leagues were suspended due to the current global situation. The Eredivisie, for example, has been declared null and void – with no champions and no relegation.

Those who have chosen to play FIFA may have a 99-rated card, as Jordy does, and that can make things difficult for those who come up against them. These are usually given to pros and just like many others who have had their teams shared online in the past, the Dutchman has included himself in his squad.

But, who is around him?

He’s got a few Icon cards, but they’re not quite as high as you might expect.

Slotting into a CDM role, Bruijn is playing alongside one of the greatest coaches in world football today – Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola. An 85-rated Pep, in fact, from his Barcelona days.

That’s not the only Icon to make it into his lineup, either, with the likes of Rio Ferdinand, Javier Zanetti and Gianfranco Zola coming into the fold. The full team can be seen below, in list form and a snap from Reddit user lind39.

Jordy Bruijn’s FIFA 20 Ultimate Team

  • Peter Gulasci (89)
  • Rio Ferdinand (85)
  • Dayot Upamecano (87)
  • Javier Zanetti (88)
  • Patrick Van Aanholt (84)
  • Bruijn (99)
  • Pep Guardiola (85)
  • Sebastian Giovinco (92)
  • Frenkie De Jong (87)
  • Gianfranco Zola (85)
  • Donyell Malen (86)

It shouldn’t be any surprise to see further representation of the player’s home nation in his side, though, with the likes of Donyell Malen of PSV, Frenkie De Jong of Barcelona, and Patrick van Aanholt of Crystal Palace making the cut.

A lot of these pro player teams have looked pretty much unbeatable, from those revealed in the past, but the same can’t really be said here – as there’s plenty of room for upgrades. The Icon cards are all pretty low rating in comparison to the ones at the higher end of the scale in FIFA 20, for example.

Reckon you could put Jordy’s team to the sword? Let us know on Twitter @UltimateTeamUK and show us your team.

EA SPORTS have dropped a handful of double upgrade squad building challenges into FIFA 21. Here, we’ve got cheap solutions for the Premier League and Bundesliga SBCs.

As the FIFA year unfolds, EA SPORTS rolls out plenty of new content – especially when it comes to Ultimate Team.

There are new cards, packs, players, and plenty of things to get your hands-on – with the majority of these coming through Squad Building Challenges.

In the newest set, EA have released double upgrade SBCs where you can get two rare players from a league of your choice. However, we’re focusing on the Premier League and Bundesliga for now.

FIFA 21 has many good attacking players, but not a lot are better than Bayern’s top striker.

Premier League & Bundesliga Double Upgrade SBC requirements

The requirements for both challenges are simple, and identical as well, bar needing to change it up for the league you’re after.

You’ll need to hand over 11 rare, gold players, with at least six of those coming from the league you’re doing – so, six Premier League players for the Premier League SBC and six from the Bundesliga for the Bundesliga SBC.

You can pick 11 rare players, there’s nothing stopping you, but if you decide to mix in other leagues, bare in mind that you will need a minimum of 70 Team Chemistry to complete both SBCs. Squad Rating doesn’t matter here. 

  • Bundesliga 81+ Double Upgrade: Min. 6 players from Bundesliga, exactly 11 gold players, Min. 70 Team Chemistry.
  • Premier League 81+ Double Upgrade: Min. 6 players from Premier League, exactly 11 gold players, Min. 70 Team Chemistry.

Now, the challenge is ideal for anyone who has a tonne of fodder cards laying around, but if you don’t, and need to build the team from scratch, it won’t cost too much.

According to FUTBin, both challenges will cost anywhere between 9,000 and 11,000 coins regardless of your console. Though, we’ve got a few solutions that should save you some coins. 

For completing the SBC, you’ll get two players that are at least 81-rated from your selected league. If you want to keep trying your luck, well you can, as the challenge is repeatable.
