EA Sports have launched a brand new set of FIFA 20 squad building challenges (SBCs), this time relating to a number of ‘Marquee Matchups’ from last year.

FIFA 20 has seen EA rolling out brand new SBCs regularly, trying to keep challenges fresh for players to complete. The most recent Throwback Marquee Matchups SBCs have seen EA set challenges relating to a number of key fixtures from the 2018/19 season.

The deadline for these is April 9 but, given the fairly cheap nature of solutions, you shouldn’t have a problem completing them all in due course.

Jeonbuk Hyundai vs Ulsan Hyundai FIFA 20 SBC

These are taken from all over the world, meaning players might need a bit of help to complete them. The first, and probably most unfamiliar to players, is a clash from the South Korean top tier, between Jeonbuk Hyundai and Ulsan Hyundai. In the 2019 K-League campaign, the two sides played one another four times. The results were pretty even, with both sides winning one and drawing two.

To complete this challenge and get the Premium Electrum Players Pack, players must submit one squad. It requires a at least one South Korean player, three leagues, two rare players, ten gold cards and 75 chemistry.

Thankfully, this one is pretty cheap and easy to complete. At the time of writing, it will cost players between 5,000 and 6,000 coins depending on your platform. Thanks to the guys over at FUTBIN, we’ve listed the cheapest solution in the current market. Note that these are subject to fluctuation and, given the challenge, we’ll probably see a slight increase in the cost of all South Korean players.

This should be incredibly cheap regardless of your platform.

Spartak Moscow vs CSKA Moscow FIFA 20 SBC

The second squad players need to complete as part of the Throwback Marquee Matchups SBC is one straight out of the Russian capital. Over the 2018/19 season, CSKA and Spartak finished 5th and 6th respectively. Their last meeting, in August 2019, was won 2-1 by Spartak. The individual reward for this SBC is a Gold Players Pack.

Similar to the K-League, this squad is pretty simple, cheap and easy. The requirements are a minimum of one player from Russia, three rare players, ten gold players, 80 chemistry and a maximum of three players from one club.

Once again, this squad won’t set players back a lot of coins. Depending on platform it will cost between 6,000 and 10,000 coins. Below is one of the cheapest possible options.

This is a cheap and easy solution to the Moscow derby SBC.

Borussia Mönchengladbach vs FC Schalke 04 FIFA 20 SBC

The third and penultimate squad players have to complete is from the Bundesliga. In the 2018/19 season they experienced mixed fortunes, with Schalke finishing 14th, while M’gladbach finished 5th.

To complete this squad and earn the Prime Electrum Players Pack, players must complete a fairly simple squad. It needs at least one player from Schalke or M’gladbach, two players from the Bundesliga, two rare players, a 79 OVR rating and 80 chemistry. It also has a maximum of five nationalities.

While it certainly sounds more difficult, it can still be completed for less than 10,000 coins, regardless of the platform you play on. Below is one of the cheapest options.

This should be very easy to do, given the commonality of Bundesliga and Eredivisie players.

Athletic Bilbao vs FC Barcelona FIFA 20 SBC

The final squad players have to complete is one inspired by the matchup between Athletic Club Bilbao and Barcelona. Two historic Spanish sides, their last two matchups have ended 1-0 to Bilbao.

The requirements for this squad are as follows: minimum of one player from Athletic Club or Barcelona, two players from LaLiga Santander, three rare players, OVR 80 rating and 85 chemistry. There is also a limit of 7 players from the same league.

While the hardest of any of the Marquee Matchup squads, it remains fairly cheap and simple. It will cost between 9,000 and 12,000 coins depending on your platform. Below is one of the cheapest options.

This Basque vs Catalonia derby is one of Spain’s most famous.

FIFA 20 Throwback Marquee Matchup SBCs Overall Cost & Reward

There you have it, those are the four squads you have to complete to earn the overall reward, which is a Rare Electrum Players Pack. While this is nowhere near as good as some of the other SBC rewards FIFA 20 has seen, it’s important to remember the incredibly cheap cost of these four XIs.

While some SBC challenges set players back nearly a million coins (like the Bruno Fernandes POTM SBC),  the total cost for these four squads is roughly 31,500 coins on PS4 and 32,000 coins on Xbox One and PC.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 9 live: release time, TOTW leaks, predictions

The next FIFA 21 Team of the Week, TOTW 9, is now on its way in Ultimate Team ⁠— here’s everything we know about the new upgraded team so far, including any EA SPORTS leaks, the promo’s release time, and more.

Last week’s TOTW, the eighth in FIFA 21, was undoubtedly the best we’ve seen yet, so it’s going to be a tough ask for Team of the Week 9 to go one better.

There’s a good chance it could come close, however, is a huge stack of international stars in line for IF cards, including Cristiano Ronaldo, cover star Erling Haaland, and Romeulu Lukaku. Zlatan Ibrahimovic ⁠— who is planning to sue EA over his rights ⁠— could be included too.

Forwards weren’t the only stars to shine this week either. Tottenham shot-stopper Hugo Lloris and Everton’s Lucas Digne could get in-form cards, while Monaco centerpiece Cesc Fabregas pulled the strings in a 3-2 win over PSG.

Here’s everything we know about the mid-week promo so far, including when the newest Team of the Week lineup will drop in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, possible in-form card leaks, and Dexerto’s weekly TOTW predictions.

Cristiano Ronaldo could get his first FIFA 21 in-form in TOTW 9.

On November 25, FIFA publishers EA SPORTS will release the ninth batch of Team of the Week cards for this year. The TOTW 9 promo will begin at 6pm (UK time), as per usual.

That means 6pm BST, 12pm CT, 1pm EST, 3am AEST for those around the world.

These boosted TOTW 9 player upgrades will be announced at the same time as they drop in-game. Keep your eyes peeled on our official Twitter account — we always make sure to share the new FIFA 21 team as soon as it’s live.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 9 leaks

So far, EA SPORTS hasn’t let any early Team of the Week 9 cards slip ⁠— after TOTW 7, when they accidentally shipped 11 upgraded cards early, they’re likely playing it extra safe.

If any leaks drop ahead of the official TOTW 9 reveal, we’ll keep you updated.

Hugo Lloris was immense in Tottenham's 2-0 win over City last weekend.
