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!

FIFA 21 TOTW 2 live: Lewandowski, Haaland, Kane, Saint-Maximin, more

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.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2

The full Team of the Week #2 in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team!

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)
  • Ben Chilwell (84)
  • Theo Hernandez (83)
  • Jack Grealish (83)
  • Ollie Watkins (81)
  • Allan Saint-Maximin (83)
  • Renato Sanchez (82)
  • Marcel Halstenberg (84)

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.


These boosted player upgrades are now being announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21, unlike other years where we knew about them three hours prior.

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.
