The Champions League Showdown SBCs are back in FIFA 21, with Manchester City’s Oleksandr Zinchenko getting a boosted card. Here’s what you need to know. 

Over the years, Ultimate Team has started to follow real-world football closer than ever. There are plenty of promos, new cards, objectives, and squad building challenges to play with when something changes in real-life football.

With the Champions League and Europa League returning, Road to the Final cards will start to be boosted once again, but there’s also new content to get your hands on.

That includes a Showdown SBC for the Manchester City vs Borussia Monchengladbach Champions League tie with some nice new cards on offer.

Showdown Zinchenko SBC requirements

Versatile youngster Oleksandr Zinchenko represents the City side of things, while the experienced Patrick Herrmann has been given an SBC for Monchengladbach.

The SBCs are pretty simple, but we’re focusing on Zinchecko here. To get his 85-rated left-back card, you’ll need to build one City-themed team and one Premier League-themed squad.

The kicker is, though, that neither team is low rated. On the City side, you’ll need to give up at least one Team of the Week card, whereas the Premier League team must be at least 86 overall.

  • Manchester City: Min. 1 TOTW card, Min. 1 Manchester City player, Min. 84 Squad Rating, Min. 75 Team Chemistry
  • Premier League: Min. 1 Premier League player, Min. 86 Squad Rating, Min. 70 Team Chemistry

Now, if you’ve got some fodder cards to hand over for this SBC, then fair play, but most players will be digging deep into their Ultimate Team coins for this one.

According to FUTBin, Zinchenko’s SBC costs between 317,000 to 380,000 coins depending on the platform you play on. However, we’ve got a solution for both challenges that should save you some coins.

A new Flashback SBC is now live in FIFA 21, with Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos getting a boosted card. Here’s what you need to know. 

Flashbacks are always a fun addition to Ultimate Team, as they let you grab powerful throwback cards for players that take them back to a special moment or a prime time during their career.

This latest standalone SBC celebrates Kroos’s prolific 2017-2018 LaLiga season playing for Real Madrid with a very nice 93 OVR card that could definitely beef up your midfield lineup.

Toni Kroos Flashback SBC requirements & price

There are three total squads all with their own sets of requirements to knock out in order to complete this SBC, and on top of unlocking Kroos’s powered-up card at the end, you’ll also get a pack reward for each set of challenges.

To grab the German midfielder for yourself you’ll need to build one Bundesliga-themed squad, one La Liga-themed one, and finally, a Top Form challenge to wrap it all up.

The catch is that all three require fairly high ratings: 83 for Bundesliga, 84 for La Liga, and 85 for Top Form, which just might be where the high price tag is coming from.

  • Number of players from Bundesliga: Min 1
  • IF Players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 83
  • Team Chemistry: Min 80
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11
