Legendary Chilean midfielder Marcelo Diaz has been awarded an 89-rated flashback card in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team that can only be unlocked via a new squad building challenge (SBC). So, here’s how you can get your hands on it. 

Flashback cards in FIFA Ultimate Team are a way for EA SPORTS to celebrate a player’s career or key moment that helped them put their name on the map.

Throughout FIFA 20, there have been cards for players like Theo Walcott, Wayne Rooney, Manuel Neuer, and Cesc Fabregas but following the release of the all-new CONMEBOL content in FUT, a new player has joined the mix – Racing Club midfielder Marcelo Diaz.

Diaz has claimed a Copa America title with Chile.

If you’re not familiar with the Chilean midfielder, he has commonly been referred to as the ‘South American Xavi’ – which is a pretty solid nickname after all. Diaz also cemented his name in Bundesliga folklore when he scored a last-minute free-kick to save Hamburg from relegation in 2015.

However, you won’t have to have a 90% passing accuracy through games or score a late free-kick to get your hands on this card. Instead, you just need to complete one SBC, but you will need a few Team of the Week cards spare. So, here’s what you need to do: 

Marcelo Diaz FIFA 20 SBC requirements

  • Squad Rating: Min 84
  • Team of the Week cards: Min 2
  • Team Chemistry: Min 80
  • Players in the Squad: 11

As of writing, FUTBIN estimates that the squad building challenge will cost you in the region of 50-55k coins regardless of whether you play on PS4, Xbox One, or PC. 

Though, there’s no need to worry if you’re not the best at completing these SBCs, as we have rounded up a few squads that will get you below that price estimate – but there is plenty of room to be flexible.

As an 89-rated card with less than 80 pace, it might not jump off the screen as a card you need to own but Diaz’s stats make it a pretty hand one to own.

We’ve got some of his in-game stats below, where the passing and long shots immediately stand out as the most impressive numbers. The card also has a medium/high attacking and defensive work rate with three traits – outside foot shot, leadership, and injury prone.

However, if the card has taken your fancy, you won’t have long to complete the SBC as the challenge is set to leave the game on Tuesday, March 10.

So, make sure that you act fast and add the card to your club before the squad building challenge expires for good.

Another Squad Building Challenge is live for FIFA 21 Ultimate Team’s Rulebreakers – this time for Anderson Talisca – and we’ve got the requirements, solutions, in-game stats, and everything else you need to unlock it.

FIFA 21’s Rulebreakers cards are introducing new ways to play with certain players. The latest edition to the Rulebreakers club is Anderson Talisca, the Brazilian CAM for Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao F.C.

Talisca has always been a relatively popular card in FIFA considering the league he plays in; many love the versatility of the Brazilian and all of the attacking prowess he possesses.

Normally an 82-rated CAM, Talisca’s base gold card gets a big upgrade to an 84-rated CAM. The Rulebreakers item has an impressive 87 pace with a 91 Acceleration. and given how important pace is in FIFA 21, this helps give him a huge edge over defenders.

The Brazilian also gets a slight increase in his shooting, passing, defense, and dribbling attributes, which should more than compensate for the slight hit to his physical attribute. As a CAM, thse offensive upgrades are certainly desirable.

This SBC only has one squad you need to build, and FIFA database website FUTBIN estimates it to cost around 60,000 coins on PS4, 70,000 on Xbox One, and 70,000 on Origin PC.

Anderson Talisca:

  • Number of players from Brazil: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 85
  • Team Chemistry: Min 60
  • Number of players in the squad: 11

Here is the cheapest solution for the SBC which doesn’t use any position-change cards and doesn’t require loyalty:

Is this SBC worth doing?

Talisca’s Rulebreakers card is definitely good individually, but unfortunately, he plays in a region that isn’t commonplace in FUT. Still, he is Brazilian so he has some good chemistry links with popular players like Neymar Jr, and he’s also a CAM with a high pace attribute, which is always valuable.

Ultimately, this Rulebreaker card is very good, and probably worth investing in. You should be able to find uses for it and get some decent chemistry links with his Brazilian nationality.

You don’t have to make a decision right away; the SBC is around until Tuesday, November 3, so you have a week to decide if you think he’s worth the investment.
