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.
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.
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.
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.
