FC Bayern Munich star Joshua Kimmich’s Player Moments SBC has been released in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team to celebrate his explosive performance as a holding midfielder against FC Rostov in 2016/17, and we’ve got all the details on how to unlock the limited edition card.

The German defender’s move to midfield with a new 90-rated card seems to be one of the best changes in the ShapeShifters promo, especially considering he’s now joined the fabled ‘Gullit Gang’ with 80+ in all face stats — but is he worth crafting?

Kimmich’s Player Moments SBC requires two challenges to complete – 85 rated squads for both Germany and the Bundesliga.

Germany

  • Players from Germany: Min 1
  • In-Form Players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 85
  • Team Chemistry: Min 75
  • Players in the Squad: 11
  • Reward: Prime Mixed Players Pack (4 Gold Players, 4 Silver Players, 4 Bronze Players, at least 6 Rare)

Bundesliga

  • Players from Bundesliga: Min 1
  • In-Form Players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 86
  • Team Chemistry: Min 70
  • Players in the Squad: 11
  • Reward: Rare Electrum Players Pack (6 Rare Gold Players, 6 Rare Silver Players)

As of publishing, the two-squad challenge costs around 205,000 coins on Xbox One and PS4, while Origin PC-based players will face a little bit of a steeper price at 230,000, according to FIFA stats website Futbin.

Here is the cheapest squad available for the Germany puzzle. This nation-based challenge isn’t locked to a league, so the Premier League offers a lot of different avenues to be able to finish the first of the two challenges.

Here is the currently cheapest squad for the Bundesliga portion of the SBC. The best thing about this solution is if you were already using Kimmich’s 87-rated CDM as part of your team, you can use him to collect the upgraded release.

Why was Kimmich given a Player’s Moment SBC?

While Bayern Munich’s defensive star has made a few more appearances in the center of the Bavarian powerhouse’s midfield, back in the 2016/17 Champions League his switch to the middle of the park was much more of a shock.

The bold swap from Carlo Ancelotti paid off, massively. The then-21-year-old banged in a double — including his first-ever UCL goal — in a 5–0 rout against their Russian opponents, and Kimmich was handed the player of the match plaudits.

“Every goal gives you a wonderful feeling, but to score twice in a game isn’t something you do often,” Kimmich told UEFA.com after his performance. “I can’t remember the last time I scored twice – maybe at youth level!”

Kimmich’s in-game stats and value

So is the Bundesliga defender-come-midfielder worth picking up for your Ultimate Team? At first glance, absolutely. Kimmich’s previous CDM card, an 87-rated IF from TOTW 11, has already been played a whopping 550,000 times.

Compared to that 87-rated choice, this Players Moments release is exceptional. In particular, a +7 boost fires Kimmich up to 80 pace, while his passing, defence, and physical stats all get +3 upgrades too — perfect for a controlling CDM.

Perhaps the best upgrade, however, comes in his work rates. While Kimmich’s base card, and his IF boost from TOTW11, suffer from low defense, high attack work rates, this new release has solved those issues, and he’s now high/high.

There is only one problem you may encounter: his height is just 5’9”, leaving him exposed to any headers he may be called upon to make, but his versatile stats across the board, as well as his accelerated pace, should make up for this.

You could pair the new 90-rated Kimmich with Munich teammate Robert Lewandowski in a Bundesliga squad.

Considering you can pair Kimmich’s new card with other premium Bundesliga options like Headliners Robert Lewandowski (93 ST) and Marco Reus (90 CAM), as well as defensive combo Flashback Mats Hummels and Winter Refresh Nico Schulz, it seems like a no-brainer to add the German midfielder to your collection.

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)

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.

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.
