As if this week couldn’t get any more special for Bayern Munich fans, EA has handed the Bavarian champions’ lynchpin midfielder Thiago Alcântara a UEFA Champions League Final MOTM SBC card in FIFA 20 for his efforts in the final.
Bayern Munich edged French rivals Paris Saint Germain 1–0 in the European final on Sunday evening, clinching their sixth Champions League trophy. Kingsley Coman may have been the evening’s lone goalscorer, but it was Thiago that pulled the strings in the decider at Estádio da Luz in Lisbon.
The Spaniard — who is reportedly on his way to English giants Liverpool for £30 million in the next few weeks — had his hands all over the final. Thiago had 95 touches, and played in two key chances for the eventual 2020 champions.
Thiago was crowned EA’s man of the match for his efforts. With it has come a stunning 96 rated midfielder card; well worthy of being in any FIFA 20 squad at this point. Here’s how you can get your hands on Thiago’s UCL MOTM upgrade.

Thiago Alcantara UCL MOTM in-game stats
There’s no sugar coating this one; the new Thiago Alcantara card is one of the best midfield options in the game. It’s late on in FIFA 20, of course, so there’s plenty of choices, but if you want something new, the Spaniard is a great pick.
The 96-rated upgrade solves the one issue many have had with Thiago’s original gold release in regards to his pace. The UCL MOTM card has a whopping +20 to pace overall though, and +11 to his overall passing stat to boot.
In fact, there’s really only two stats that are even remotely low; Thiago has ‘just’ 83 defense, and 85 physical. His PHY is brought down slightly by his strength (79) and Aggression (75), but boasts a huge 99 jumping and stamina.
The MOTM card’s real beauty is in its 99 dribbling, however. Thiago has the top-rated 99 in agility, dribbling, ball control, and comes close for the rest too: balance 96, reactions 94, and composure 95. Thiago is basically a must-unlock!
