EA Sports have given popular Chelsea and Spain defender César Azpilicueta a special Flashback SBC card in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team (FUT) and we’ve got the requirements, solutions, and how much it costs.

Flashback SBCs have become popular in FIFA Ultimate Team ever since EA added them to the fold starting several years ago. They’re meant to honor and recognize a player’s best season or campaign, whether domestically, internationally, or both.

Released on February 27, Azpilicueta’s Flashback card celebrates his 2016/2017 season, of which he played every single minute and was instrumental in Chelsea winning the Premier League.

César Azpilicueta FIFA 20 Flashback SBC stats

The most noticeable thing about this special Azpilicueta card is that it’s a CB – the third defensive position he’s been featured in. His default gold card ships as an RB while his 86-rated TOTW is an LB.

As is the case in real life, this card also features very good stats in pace, passing, and dribbing for a center-back, making him an ideal choice for those who like to pass their way out of the back, particularly when facing tight pressure from the opposing team.

The card isn’t without some shortcomings, however, as his 73 strength is definitely a concern for the CB position, and his 82 composure, while in the green, could be better. His jumping stats aren’t that impressive either – 81 jumping and 78 heading accuracy – which could further expose his 5’10” height.

Is César Azpilicueta Flashback SBC worth doing?

Honestly, if you’re on the fence about whether or not to try and get this card, it’s probably not worth doing the SBC because it’s hard to justify spending 200,000 coins on an untradeable CB whose stats don’t come close to being endgame-level.

Virgil Van Dijk, arguably the best gold center-back in the game, is going for just about twice that coin amount, and he’s definitely more than twice as good as Azpi. Not to mention, that’s a tradeable card.

Unless you’re a die-hard Chelsea fan or building the best possible version of the London club, then your best bet is to stay away from this SBC.

FIFA 21 TOTW 17 predictions: Muller, Insigne, Stones

FIFA 21’s Team of the Week 17 is on the horizon in Ultimate Team. While Team of the Year might be the focus of some players, this could set could have some nice cards. So, here are our predictions. 

With the FA Cup getting underway last week, Team of the Week 16 gave EA the chance to shine the spotlight on some other leagues while also adding in a handful of standout players.

This week, as we approach TOTW 17, English sides are eligible again, and should feature a decent bit as there were a few outstanding performances. Of course, though, we’ll still get players from all over the globe.

So, without any further ado, here are our predictions for FIFA 21’s Team of the Week 17. 

Alisson Becker in FIFA 21
EA Sports
Liverpool’s Alisson Becker should be a shoe-in for TOTY, but deservers other cards.

This week our predictions are headed by two players who could end up with a Team of the Year card – Liverpool’s Alisson Becker and Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller. Alisson saved the Reds a point in a tight game against Manchester United.

Elsewhere, we’ve included Matheus Pereira for his MOTM performance for West Brom against Wolves, Lorenzo Insigne for his goals and assist for Napoli, and Nicolo Barella for his performance against Juventus. 

Ajax’s Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is a bit of a throwback, as he hasn’t a TOTW card in forever. However, he deserves one for lifting the Amsterdam side to a late win over FC Twente. 

FIFA 21 TOTW 17 Predictions | Team of the Week 17

  • GK: Alisson – Liverpool
  • GK: Stefan Ortega – Arminia Bielefeld
  • LB: Layvin Kurzawa – PSG
  • RB: Thomas Meunier – Borussia Dortmund
  • RB: Sofiane Alakouch – Nimes
  • CB: Patrick Mainka – FC Heidenheim
  • CB: John Stones – Manchester City
  • CDM: Peter Zulj – RSC Anderlecht
  • CM: Youri Tielemans – Leicester City
  • CM: Teun Koopmeiners – AZ Alkmaar 
  • CM: Tanguy Ndombele – Spurs
  • CM: Nicolò Barella – Inter Milan
  • RM: Salvador Agra – CD Tondela
  • LM: Sammy Ameobi – Nottingham Forest
  • CAM: Luis Alberto – Lazio
  • CAM: Matheus Pereira – West Brom
  • CAM: Thomas Muller – Bayern Munich 
  • LW: Lorenzo Insigne – Napoli
  • ST: Wissam Ben Yedder – AS Monaco
  • ST: Donyell Malen – PSV
  • ST: Klaas-Jan Huntelaar – Ajax
  • ST: Luka Jovic – Frankfurt
  • ST: Charlie Wyke – Sunderland

TOTW 17 Silver Star predcition – Simeon Tochukwu Nwankwo

In terms of a Silver Stars prediction, we’ve gone with Crotone’s Nigerian striker Simeon Nwankwo – who is simply known as Simy in FIFA. 

The 28-year-old bagged two goals and chipped in with an assist during the win over Benevento, and should get a nice boost to the top end of the current silver cards. 

Obviously, these are purely our predictions for TOTW 17 and aren’t official in any way. EA might decide to hold certain players back because of TOTY – though, that is set to be revealed “later in January. 

Either way, it’s only a short wait until we know who is in TOTW 17 as the new cards will be released on Wednesday, January 20 at 6 PM GMT.
