It’s a well-known fact that a lot of professional footballers like to play FIFA from time to time, and after coming up against Ajax forward Quincy Promes online, a player has revealed his Ultimate Team lineup. 

Promes is looking much more comfortable back home in the Netherlands than he ever did at the likes of Sevilla FC and Spartak Moscow, steadily becoming a player Ajax can rely on. However, the end of the season appears to have ended disappointingly, with the Eredivisie wiping the 19/20 season from the books entirely.

We first brought you Quincy Promes’ FIFA 20 Ultimate Team back in January, but it has emerged improved as the Dutch star spends some time in lockdown playing EA’s football simulation title.

Promes has won multiple championships throughout his career, particularly during his stint with Russian side Spartak Moscow.

A FIFA fan by the name ‘swagmasterino36‘ shared Promes’ FIFA Ultimate Team, and it’s significantly different to the one we showed you in January. The 4-3-3 formation has been done away with, replaced with a 4-5-1 with two CAMs.

Promes himself still slots in on the left hand side, playing as a LM as opposed to LW. R9 has been pushed forward from CM to CAM, joined by FUT Champions Fernandinho. Ruud Gullit still plays as a holding midfielder. Similarly, Messi has been pushed back to RM, while Frenkie De Jong at ST has been done away with for IF Neymar.

Promes’ new Ultimate Team.

The biggest upgrades come in Promes’ back five. Telles has been done away with, replaced by 94 OVR Andy Robertson. He is paired with an upgraded Virgil Van Dijk, while Barcelona’s Nelson Semedo comes in at RB.  ICON Edwin van der Sar is also done away with, replaced by 93 OVR Peter Schmeichel.

Promes’ old UT.

We’ve put both teams into the table below, so you can compare how they match up.

Quincy Promes’ new FIFA 20 Ultimate Team: How it used to look: 
GK: Peter Schmeichel – 93 GK: Edwin van der Sar – 89
RB: Nelson Semedo – 87 RB: Kenny Lala – 88
CB: Matthijs De Ligt – 96 CB: Matthijs De Ligt – 96
CB: Virgil Van Dijk – 93 CB: Virgil Van Dijk – 90
LB: Andy Robertson – 94 LB: Alex Telles – 87
CM: Ruud Gullit – 90 CDM: Ruud Gullit – 90
CAM: Ronaldo – 94 CM: Ronaldo – 94
CAM: Fernandinho – 91 CM: Zinedine Zidane – 94
RM: Lionel Messi – 94 RW: Lionel Messi – 94
LM: Quincy Promes – 99 LW: Quincy Promes – 99
ST: Neymar – 93 ST: Frenkie De Jong – 94

One of the more baffling changes appear to be the removal of Mauricio Pochettino as manager, replaced by a bronze, Dutch manager. It was perhaps for chemistry reasons, but Promes’ Ultimate Team is pretty flawless when it comes to linking players together.

We’re also not sure what the motive for swapping Zidane for Fernandinho was. Not only is Zidane higher overall, but he’s far more suited to the attacking role of a CAM, while Man City’s Brazilian midfielder is typically seen in a more defensive, anchoring role.


How to complete Alessandrini Flashback SBC in FIFA 21: solutions & cost

A new Flashback SBC is available in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team for French Winger Romain Alessandrini, celebrating his goal-studded 2017-2018 seasons for the Los Angeles Galaxy.

SBC’s are a great way to fill out your card collection in FUT, and if you’re in need of something new on the outside, Alessandrini might be just the man you’re looking for.

Now playing for Chinese Super League team Qingdao Huanghai, the Winger notched two of the best seasons in his career while playing for the LA Galaxy in the MLS (13 goals in 2017 & 11 in 2018), which this new Flashback card harkens back to.

Fans who played Ultimate Team in FIFA 18 will remember how good the Frenchman’s cards were – almost everyone had either his first or second In-Form on their bench as a super-sub, and his nationality made it easier to even start him, for those who wanted to.

Stats for Alessandrini’s Flashback SBC in FIFA 21.

To start off, just check out that 92 Pace on an 85 OVR card. You really couldn’t ask for anything better with 91 Sprint Speed and 93 Acceleration. Shooting, Passing, and Dribbling also all clock in at high to mid-80s as well.

Defending and Physicality are his weak points, but the good news is that there’s only one single challenge you have to knock out in order to wrap up this SBC and grab the fleet-footed Frenchman’s new card for yourself.

Alessandrini Flashback SBC requirements, solutions, cost.

Altogether these tasks should run you around 92,000 to about 105,000 FUT Coins to complete, which isn’t too shabby at all considering the Acceleration and Sprint Speed stats he’s packing. The full requirements are listed below:

Romain Alessandrini

  • Number of players from France: Min 1
  • IF Players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 85
  • Team Chemistry: Min 70
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11

Below are a couple of the cheapest solutions we’ve found to this Flashback SBC, and to make things even easier they don’t require any loyalty to complete.

Now that you know all there is to know about how to knock this SBC out, the only question left is: is it worth it? Looking at the stats alone, especially that 92 Pace, we’d definitely say this SBC is worthwhile if you can afford to complete it.

If you can muster up the coinage prior to the challenge expiring on Friday, December 4, then definitely look into it because this could be a highly-coveted super-sub that you can’t get your hands on later.
