How to complete FIFA 20 Throwback Marquee Matchups SBC (Week 5)

EA SPORTS have added a new set of Throwback Marquee Matchups SBCs in FIFA 20 for Week 5, with big clashes from last year’s La Liga, MLS, Ligue 1, and Bundesliga seasons. Let’s get right to it and show you how to complete them all. 

Regular Ultimate Team players will have noticed something a little different about these challenges in recent weeks. With many seasons pausing during the global crisis, there hasn’t been up to date matches for EA to base their selections on – as they usually would.


Instead, the solution has been to pick games from the past that have been memorable and allow players to complete SBCs for them, instead. This week’s set features giants from competitive divisions, and we have a complete rundown for each.

Barcelona have been included in this week’s Throwback Marquee Matchups.

All approximate values for the team are based on stats from the FUTBIN database, and are subject to change.

By adding together approximate estimates of each team, it rounds off to a total spend of around 37,000 – but will likely be cheaper than that, given the market fluctuates quite a bit.


After finishing each of these, you will also unlock an additional Prime Gold Players Pack, worth 45,000. This means that completing the entire set will be worth it just for this reward alone, never mind the other four packs along the way for individual teams. We’ll let you decide if they’re worth doing, though.

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.
