EA SPORTS have unveiled the first Ligue 1 Player of the Month card of this game’s life cycle, with FC Metz’s firing striker being rewarded for his red-hot form. So, let’s look at how you can complete the new FIFA 21 Ibrahima Niane POTM SBC, with details on price and solutions.
This is going to be a huge addition to the arsenal of players using Ligue 1 or hybrid squads with French league players, much like the new Laurent Koscielny Flashback SBC – which is still live for a limited amount of time.
For the price you can get him for, Niane looks to be a decent acquisition – especially if you compare this challenge to some that have gone before it. For more FIFA 21 news, tips, and guides follow us on Twitter @UltimateTeamUK.
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.
Team of the Week 9 start time
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.
