FIFA 20 Ultimate Team players can now celebrate Marcos Alonso’s previous inclusion in Team of the Season, with two brand new Flashback Squad Building Challenges (SBC) to complete. 

As many Chelsea fans will remember, the Spaniard was part of the FUT 17 TOTS after a sparkling campaign with the South West London club. The Blues scooped their fifth Premier League title that season, with Antonio Conte at the helm.

With this celebratory SBC, EA have done things a little differently. Players have the option to go for a brand new 88-rated version of Alonso by completing the normal challenge, or instead pay a bit extra and grab themselves the premium 90-rated LWB card. No matter which one you have eyes on, we have got you covered.

Flashback Marcos Alonso SBC in FIFA 20: Normal & Premium

In-game stats and deadline

To help you decide which one you would like to unlock, let’s look at the differences in statistics.

Clearly, the higher overall version has some nice upgrades like higher pace, with one having 82 acceleration and the other having 90, as well as 86 and 78 sprint speed respectively.

Other stats, however, don’t show any difference. For example, stamina is 99 on both.

As seen above, there is no expiry on the 90-rated version SBC, meaning that players have time to get their hands on enough cash to be able to buy it. However, the 88-rated version does close off on May 6, 2020.

Alonso Flashback SBC requirements: Normal & Premium

As these are two separate challenges, the requirements also differ. For the normal challenge (88), you’re going to need to build just one team, whereas the premium (90) requires two.

  • In-form or Moments Players: Min 1

  • Number of players from Premier League: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 87
  • Team Chemistry: Min 60
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11
  • Reward: Rare Electrum Players Pack

Cost and solutions

Depending on which one you’re after and what platform you play FIFA on, the cost varies. For the normal challenge, FUTBIN estimates it will set you back around 80,000 to 90,000 coins to complete. With the premium SBC, however, the amount you will need to lay out is much higher – estimated between 255,000 and 275,000 coins.

On that basis, it’s pretty much just down to whether or not you think – based on the in-game stats – that the upgrade is worth the extra cash. Solutions for all can be found below.

This one is broken into two challenges, with the first being La Furia Roja, and the second being for the Premier League.

It’s not really for us to say which of these challenges is the most worthwhile, so we’ll let you decide. The upside of the premium challenge is that you pick up rewards packs along the way, but it’s more expensive, so it’s worth weighing up your options before settling.

Once you have made your mind up, though, feel free to share your in-game snaps with us on Twitter @UltimateTeamUK. Until next time, feel free to check out our guides for the Premier League SBC, Player Moments Diogo Jota, and others.

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.

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.

Here are our TOTW 2 predictions, so let’s see how many we got right this week!
