The stats for the six all-new storyline cards in FIFA 20 Ultimate Teams have been revealed, with Fred, Andrea Belotti, and Yannick Carrasco proving to be the pick of the bunch. 

With the start of FIFA 20, EA SPORTS introduced their spin on the battle pass craze that has swept across plenty of other games. Instead of paying out for this though, FIFA fans just have to gather up large amounts of XP from playing matches, completing objectives, solving SBCs, and more.

Getting to the very end of the season progress bar, and landing at level 30 will see you unlock an untradable storyline card from a selection of three. With the start of season five upon us, the new set of storyline cards have been revealed – and there’s more than just the level thirty cards to get your hands on.

EA SPORTS
FIFA 20 season progress lets players unlock some pretty sweet cards.

The cards unlocked for reaching level thirty in FUT season five are Manchester United’s Fred, Torino’s Andrea Belotti, and Atletico Madrid’s Yannick Carrasco. However, reaching level 15 also grants you access to other cards.

These come in the form of Werder Bremen’s American striker Josh Sargent, Maritimo’s Daizen Maeda, and Sampdoria’s Morten Thorsby. These cards are all 86-rated, while the level thirty trio are all 89-rated. But what about their in-game stats? Well, we can take a look at those too.

Josh Sargent FIFA 20 Storyline card in-game stats

Just by looking at his on card stats, the 86-rated Sargent looks to be a dangerously quick striker that could fit into any Bundesliga set-up. Taking a dive into his in-game stats shows how correct that assessment would be.

The American striker has 89 sprint speed and 93 acceleration to go along with his 89 finishing, 88 shot power, and 79 long shots. 

Daizen Maeda FIFA 20 Storyline card in-game stats

It is rare you come across an all-Liga Nos squad in Ultimate Team, however, Maeda might be an option for anyone looking for pure pace.

The Japanese center-forward clocks in with a whopping 96 sprint speed and 97 acceleration, while having 91 finishing, 88 shot power, and 89 attack positioning to boot as well. 

Morten Thorsby FIFA 20 Storyline card in-game stats

Unlike his other two 86-rated storyline cards, Morten Thorsby isn’t going to set the world alight with his sprint speed – that only comes in at 84.

However, the young Norwegian looks to be a bit of a destroyer in the heart of midfield. He has 93 reactions, 89 standing tackle, and 88 aggression. Yet, it is his heading that stands out. Thorsby has 99 heading accuracy and 93 jumping so he’ll take on anyone in the air.

Andrea Belotti FIFA 20 Storyline card in-game stats

Andrea Belotti is a name that many FIFA fans will recognize as the Italian forward has been deadly in front of goal for a few years now. 

His new storyline card is no different. The Torino striker has 98 finishing, 91 shot power, 90 strength, and 92 heading accuracy as his standout stats. 87 in both acceleration and sprint speed means he’s pretty quick across the ground too.

Yannick Carrasco FIFA 20 Storyline card in-game stats

After a spell in China, Yannick Carrasco is back at Atletico Madrid and wreaking havoc in FIFA. The Belgian winger has also been an option for La Liga teams and his storyline card is more of the same.

He is lightning quick with 94 sprint speed and 95 acceleration, while he can handle himself in front of goal too. Carrasco has 88 finishing, 93 shot power, 85 log shots, and 90 free-kick accuracy. 

Fred FIFA 20 Storyline card in-game stats

Premier League Ultimate Teams always needs an all-rounder in the middle of the park and the storyline Fred card suits the bill. 

The Brazilian is a well-balanced card with 90 short and long pass, 87 dribbling, 89 standing tackle, and 84 long shots. He presents an alternative to cards like N’Golo Kante, Jean-Philippe Gbamin, and Tanguy NDombele.

So, there you have it, all the in-game stats for the six new storyline cards inside FIFA 20 FUT season five. The XP grind will, very well, prove to be worthwhile for these ones but make sure you choose correctly.

You have until Friday, April 24 to get your hands on them so, what are you waiting for?

EA SPORTS is on the brink of announcing FIFA 21 Rulebreakers Team 2, which goes live on October 30, and some players have been leaked ahead of time. 

Coming into the Halloween season, FUT fans were expecting Ultimate Scream to make a triumphant return for the fourth year in a row. Instead, EA blindsided everyone with an all-new FIFA 21 promo: the “Rulebreakers” event.

The first team was stacked full of swapped stars too. Harry Kane’s monster pace upgrade was the headline, but other boosts ⁠— Dries Mertens, Douglas Costa, and Radja Nainggolan among them ⁠— turned older FUT cards into terrifying FIFA 21 beasts.

The second half of the Halloween promo, Rulebreakers 2, is set to drop later this week  ⁠— here’s everything we know about the second boosted squad so far.

Lukaku wasn’t happy about his FIFA 21 rating on his base card, but it looks like he’s about to get a Rulebreaker.

A few players appear to have been leaked ahead of team for FIFA 21 Rulebreakers Team 2, and it looks like great news for fans of the Premier League, La Liga, and Serie A again.

According to fut.investments on Instagram, who has been bang on now for weeks, the following will feature:

  • Romelu Lukaku
  • Toni Kroos
  • Sergio Aguero

This will be a huge boost for Man City supporters, as Aguero suffered significant pace downgrades for the release of EA’s flagship title. Now, given that Kane was boosted heavily in Team 1, it looks lik the little Argentine is next.

When will “Rulebreakers 2” be released?

Rulebreakers 2 is just over the horizon now ⁠— if the in-game dates EA SPORTS has already loaded into the Ultimate Team backend are correct, the second half of the Halloween promo team should arrive on Friday, October 30 (6pm BST). 

This new team should stick around for a week. That means any special packs, challenges, and promo deals that hit Ultimate Team will last until November 6.
