FIFA 20 Ultimate Team players might soon have the chance to grab legendary Argentine strike Gabriel Batistuta – better known as Batigol – as an icon card after he appeared in a leaked tifo. 

The Icon cards in FIFA Ultimate Team pay homage to some of the greatest players to ever lace up a pair of boots. FIFA 20 already has Pele, Maradona, Ronaldo, and Roberto Carlos, but since the game launched back in September, others have been added. 

Legendary Argentine midfielder Juan Roman Riquelme was introduced alongside the all-new CONMEBOL content on March 3, with a leaked file for the in-game tifos revealing that he could be joined by a former teammate of his in the form of Batigol.

Riquleme joined the roster of FIFA 20 icon cards alongside the new CONMEBOL content.

The striker’s apparent celebration tifo was uncovered by FIFA AllStars on Twitter, claiming that the stadium cosmetic was in the game’s files. 

Like a few other player tifos, it shows Batistuta pulling off one of his celebration for Fiorentina – though there aren’t any sponsors or logos on the kit, just that it is a similar purple color to the iconic Italian club.

With the uncovering of this file, FIFA fans have quickly speculated about the possibility of the legendary striker being added as an Icon card in FUT – though there is no way to tell either way just yet. 

Player-specific tifos can usually be found in Career Mode matches, with Crystal Palace having a similar one for Ian Wright during a select number of their home matches.

It is pretty plausible to suggest that Batigol would be added as an icon seeing as EA has already added Riqulemen as a part of their CONMEBOL content. The Argentine forward would present another option for players looking to build some pretty high-powered teams.

It would also give fans the chance to pair him with compatriot Lionel Messi, which would be a pretty deadly partnership.

Red Bull Leipzig right-back Nordi Mukiele has got a pretty nice Rulebreakers card in FIFA 21, and you get your hands on it by completing five objectives. 

After a few loading screen teasers, the Rulebreakers promo has gone live in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and though its not as wild as some players speculated it would be, it has brought some interesting changes.

The Harry Kane card is, obviously, the pick of the bunch given his increased pace, but you’ll need some serious pack luck to get him.

However, one player you don’t need luck to get is Red Bull Leipzig right-back Nordi Mukiele. The French defender’s Rulebreakers card is available, for free, via the objectives page, and we’ll run you through it with his in-game stats and the challenges you’ve got to complete.

Compared to his normal card, the Rulebreaker version of Mukiele has increased speed, passing, dribbling, and physical. However, his defending stats have been reduced ever so slightly.

If you’re looking for a different option to say, Kevin Mbabu, the Leipzig full-back is a stellar choice, and it makes all the much better this new card is free thanks to the objectives. 

All you have to do, to get your hands on him, is complete the objectives that are listed below. You’ll also receive some packs and XP bonuses too for each objective that you tick off. 

Rulebreakers Mukiele objectives

  • Crossing Charms: Assist 4 goals with Crosses using Bundesliga players in the Live FUT Friendly: Rulebreakers Classic
  • Defensive Delivery: Assist 5 goals with French Defenders in the Live FUT Friendly: Rulebreakers Classic

As you can see, all of these challenges have to be completed inside of the Live FUT Friendly: Rulebreakers Classic. To get into said friendly, you have to go through the play menu inside FIFA Ultimate Team and scroll all the way to Friendlies. 

In there, you go to Play Online, and you’ll then have the option to select the Rulebreakers Classic friendly – provided your team has at least five Bundesliga players and one French player. If you meet the requirements, you’ve got until November 3rd to get the card.
