Borussia Dortmund’s flying winger Julian Brandt has assembled an extremely impressive FIFA 20 Ultimate Team and, even though he has some of the best players in history at his disposal, he still managed to squeeze his own card in.

The Germany international has been spotted playing FUT Rivals, possibly in an attempt to qualify for the Weekend League, and his opponent decided to share the star-studded starting 11 with members of the game’s online community.

Brandt’s base card is already good enough to make it into some fans’ squads, but just like many other professional footballers, he’s been handed a 99-rated card by EA SPORTS. To the surprise of absolutely nobody, it leads the line in his Ultimate Team.

Brandt’s normal card might be enough to get in some Ultimate Teams, but he’s got a much better one for himself.

There seems to be a common theme emerging with pro players’ Ultimate Teams, too, as they’re always jam-packed with Brazilians. It’s not hard to see why, though, considering the qualities of the Ronaldinho and Pele Icon cards that he owns.

Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Quincy Promes have already had their FUT teams revealed by their opposite numbers in recent times, and there were also a lot of Brazil internationals in their sides as well.

We’re not here to talk about them, though, so let’s take a look at Brandt’s. He’s gone for a 4-2-2-2 formation.

  • GK: Ederson
  • RB: Kyle Walker
  • CB: Virgil van Dijk
  • CB: Diego Carlos
  • LB: Marcelo
  • CDM: Zidane

  • ST: Julian Brandt

Played against Julian Brandt in Rivals yesterday from FIFA

Some members of the game’s online community responded to the thread, including the uploader Kombic, who claimed the match with whoever was controlling ‘Brandy FC’ didn’t last long.

“He rage quitted in the 43rd minute after I scored one of the most BS goals I have scored in FIFA 20,” they said.

A handful of users pointed out that it might not have been Brandt playing the match, however, as his brother also plays his fair share of Ultimate Team. Whether or not that was the case here is actually unknown. Whoever plays with this team, though, has certainly got an unbelievable bunch of players on their hands.

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.

Here are our TOTW 2 predictions, so let’s see how many we got right this week!
