Witsel Flashback SBC

A new Flashback Squad Building Challenge for Axel Witsel is now available in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team (FUT) and we have all the info you need to complete the SBC quickly and as cheaply as possible.

SBCs a consistent way to upgrade your Ultimate Team squad in FIFA with limited-time rewards and cards, if you have the coins to complete them. With the 2021 season still in its early stages, they can also provide a very decent boost to your team.

This latest is a Flashback challenge celebrating the early stages of Witsel’s career as an attacking-minded midfielder with an 86 OVR card for the Borussia Dortmund and Belgium star.

If you want to get your hands on it, you’ll need to complete the accompanying SBC which is, fair warning, pretty pricey. However, if you are in the market for an upgrade at midfield, it is a decent option to consider.

Axel Witsel Flashback SBC stats

Stats for Axel Witsel’s Flashback SBC reward card.

Witsel’s stats are on point for an 86 overall rated; dribbling and shooting are his two highest stats at 86 each, but shooting isn’t too shabby either at 83.

As an “attacking-minded” midfielder, it makes sense Defending is his lowest stat at 74, but even that should be decent enough to hold together against similarly-ranked opponents. In reality, you could get away with using him as a box-to-box CM as well.
