EA SPORTS have released a special Flashback SBC in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team (FUT) for Morrocan/Benfica midfielder Adel Taarabt, and we’ve got the requirements, cheapest solutions, in-game stats, and everything else you need to complete it.

The busy period in FIFA 20 continues with yet another Flashback SBC, which has become a staple within FUT, celebrating a player’s successful campaign either domestically, internationally, or both.


This latest one is for Adel Taarabt, who has received an 88-rated special card recognizing his stellar 2012/2013 season, during which he performed admirably for Queens Park Rangers despite the team finishing bottom of the table and getting relegated.

Taarabt FIFA 20 Flashback SBC: in-game stats

Over the years in FUT, Taarabt has always been regarded as one of the better dribblers in the game, and this Flashback card certainly pays homage to that. All six of his dribbling stats are 80 or above, including 94 ball control and 95 dribbling.


On top of that, he boasts great pace (88), shooting (86), and passing (89), and his 88 physical makes him a tough player to knock off the ball. The card also features five-star skills and a four-star weak foot, which are both ideal for a CAM.

The only real negative is the 70 stamina, which is definitely a concern. Those using Taarabt will probably want to sub him off at around the 60-65 minute mark before his stats really begin to deteriorate.

Requirements, cheapest solution, and total cost

This Flashback SBC actually only requires one squad building component – an 84-rated team:

  • Squad Rating: Min 84
  • Team Chemistry: Min 80
  • Players in Squad: 11

Here is the current cheapest solution, without loyalty or position-change cards, which is estimated to cost around 43,000 coins on PS4, 50,000 on Xbox One, and 43,000 on Origin.

However, if having loyalty and position-change cards isn’t an issue for you, then you can try building this squad, which costs far less at 38,000 on PS4, 43,500 on Xbox One, and 36,000 on Origin.

EA SPORTSThis solution for Adel Taarabt’s FIashback SBC is cheaper, but it needs loyalty on all players.

Of course, as is the nature of the FUT market, player prices are constantly fluctuating, so the cost of doing this SBC could go up or down depending on when you decide to complete it.


Is Taarabt Flashback SBC worth doing?

We’d highly recommend doing this SBC for a couple of reasons. First, the stats are very strong and near endgame level, and he looks like a very reliable CAM or striker, especially if equipped with a Hunter.

However, even if he doesn’t fit your squad or you have better players, it’s still an 88-rated card for pretty cheap, especially if you have stuff in your club that can further chip away at the price tag. Nowadays, with so many high-value SBCs floating around in FUT, an 88-rated item is likely to come in handy.


You better make your decision quickly though, as this squad building challenge expires on April 3, so you have less than two days to complete it before it’s gone.


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.
