Rodrigo Palacio is the latest footballer to get his own FIFA 20 Flashback SBC, and we have all the info you need to know about getting your hands on the former Inter Milan star.

Even though FIFA 20 is deep into its lifespan and we’ve started to get reveals for FIFA 21, EA is still putting out plenty of new content. 

While the mysterious Pre-Season promo has already generated a ton of interest for what could be coming next, FUT in F20 is still going on, with Rodrigo Palacio next in line for his own Flashback card.

Now let’s get into everything you’ll need to know to add this highly decent 94-rated striker card to your club, including cost, requirements, and the cheapest SBC solutions.

Flashback Rodrigo Palacio stats

Rodrigo comes equipped with the stacked stats that you would expect to see from a 94-rated striker; 97 Dribbling, 94 Shooting, and 95 Pace make him a major threat any time he’s on the attacking side of the pitch.

Only a 90 Passing with a 70 Long Pass thrown in doesn’t exactly make him the best for setting up an attack, and a paltry 64 Defending is what you’d expect from a striker of any quality. If you use him as intended though, these shouldn’t be too much of an issue.

Rodrigo Palacio Flashback requirements and price

For such a stacked card, you might expect a few SBCs to complete, but that’s not the case here. There’s only one you’ll have to build to unlock it.

Price-wise, this single SBC will run you around 100,000 FUT coins on PlayStation, 102,000 on Xbox, and 113,000 on Origin PC according to FUTBIN.

Flashback Rodrigo Palacio cheapest solutions

Now that we know an 84-rated squad is all we need, we can take a look at some of the cheapest available team options that can be used to complete it.

The following solutions are the cheapest we’ve been able to find so far using the FUTBIN database, and they could help you even get under the roughly 100,000 FUT coin price point we mentioned earlier.

FIFA 21 Team of the Year countdown: Nominees, Voting, TOTY Predictions

FIFA 21 Team of the Year will be here before you know it, and, we’ve got all the info on release dates, new cards, and a whole lot more. 

The FIFA 21 cycle is starting to get up to speed now we’ve made the jump from FUTMAS – this year, known as Freeze – and moved into the new year. 

TOTY is not to be confused with Team of the Season, which releases in the springtime, this promo is all about fans voting for the best players in the game.

The promo typically produces some of the best, non-icon cards in FIFA, but, will it be the same this year? Here’s everything that’s been confirmed.

Team of the Year always delivers in FIFA – and FIFA 20’s squad was insane.

When does Team of the Year come out FIFA 21?

As noted, FIFA 20’s FUTMAS event held the key to TOTY cards in the form of nominees and voting. Fans got to vote for a squad of 11 players from a pool of 55 nominees, with EA tallying the votes. 

EA took a slightly different approach this season and opened the voting for Team of the Year on Thursday, January 7 after announcing it the day prior.

With voting previously starting on Jan 7, we still don’t yet know when cards will start entering packs, though we would guess it could occur around the week of January 18, giving players time to vote on who they want to see in TOTY.

FIFA 21 TOTY nominees

In terms of who might be on the side itself, it’s going to be some of the world’s best players, so it’s incredibly difficult to pick out a few predictions.

The likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Robert Lewandowski, Virgil Van Dijk, Kevin De Bruyne, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar should all get nominee nods, but expect a few others as well.

Last year, the inclusions of Frenkie De Jong, Mathias De Ligt, and N’Golo Kante might have raised a few eyebrows, but that’s what players voted for at the end of the day.

How to vote for FIFA 21 TOTY

Just like last year, the voting process is pretty simple, and it’s just a case of heading to the Team of the Year website. On the website, you will see an empty 4-3-3 template, in which you can fill in your preferred goalkeeper, defenders, midfielders, and attackers.

FIFA 21 TOTY card design

We already know what the TOTY Nominee card design looks like, as revealed in the promotional content above, but what about the Team of the Year cards themselves?

Well, we’ve been given our first look thanks to FUT Watch. This year’s design builds on years past, with a little bit less elegance but definitely a bit more ‘pop’.

With the card back shattered and shards sticking out around the edges, the design is vastly different from FIFA 20. However, it exudes the same flair of a lot of card designs this year.

FIFA 21 TOTY SBCs & Objectives

Although EA love to give lots of opportunities for players to unlock untradeable cards through SBCs and Objectives, don’t expect there to be many for TOTY, since those cards are so high-rated and powerful.

That said, there should be at least one SBC involving this promotion, maybe not for a specific card outright but a pack that guarantees one of the TOTY players. We’ll have more info for you here once the promo kicks off and EA reveals all the details.

What time does TOTY come out FIFA 21?

Currently, there’s no indication as to when TOTY comes out, and 2021 is following a different vein than the early event start of 2020, which started on January 15. We will be sure to update this piece with any further information as it drops, so make sure to check back often.
