Real Madrid’s Marco Asensio has had his insane FIFA 20 Ultimate Team revealed and to say that he is a fan of Premier League cards might be underselling things a little bit. 

Since joining Real Madrid in 2014, Marco Asensio has cemented himself as one of the brightest and best young talent that is trying to take the footballing world by storm. There have been plenty of ups – he has got two Champions League winners medals to his name already – but also a few downs, most notably, missing the 2019/20 season with an ACL injury. 

Though, off the pitch, the versatile forward has also made a name for himself with his FIFA prowess. He recently won the LaLiga Santander Challenge, defeating a number of fellow professionals and even ended up being rewarded with a Player Moments card because of his glory.

La Liga
Asensio took down plenty of La Liga competition to win the FIFA tournament.

When it comes to Ultimate Team, however, the 24-year-old appears to have an even deadlier lineup at his disposal. His team was revealed by Reddit user SteOwens95, who noted that they’d just managed to defeat him 4-1, but his 99-rated pro player card was a handful to play against. 

Joining the 99-rated virtual version of himself, Asensio has a lineup full of icon cards including Diego Maradona, Ruud Gullit, Carlos Puyol, and Carlos Alberto. Ultimate Team staples like Virgil Van Dijk, David De Gea, and N’Golo Kante also make it in. 

Marco Asensio’s FIFA 20 Ultimate Team Starting XI

  • GK: David De Gea – 89
  • LWB: Ricardo Pereria – 88
  • RWB: Carlos Alberto – 90
  • CB: Carlos Puyol – 90
  • CB: Virgil Van Dijk – 90
  • CB: Kyle Walker – 87
  • CM: Ruud Gullit – 90
  • CM: N’Golo Kante – 90
  • RM: Sadio Mane – 91
  • LM: Marco Asensio – 99
  • ST: Diego Maradona – 95

Played against Marco Asensio. I won 4-1, he was a good player, I’m in Div 1 so I presume hes in a pretty good division? Not too sure how the matchmaking works. His 99 card was insane. from FIFA

Asensio’s team is pretty deadly, but, there is plenty of room for improvement. Both De Gea and Van Dijk could be upgraded thanks to their numerous special cards.

You could also bump up the icons to the prime forms, but, it is Asensio’s team at the end of the day If you’ve got any changes that you’d recommend, be sure to let us on Twitter @UltimateTeamUK.

Son Heung-min builds his dream “Ultimate player” in FIFA 21

Tottenham star Son Heung-Min sat down with Irish footballer David Meyer to build the ultimate Hotspur card for FUT 21, and it would be an absolute titan were it real.

Son is generally considered one of the best wingers playing today, and was named EA Sports Premier League Player of the Month for the third time in October 2020.

Along with Meyer, the South Korean concocted an Ultimate Teammate, a monster of a card combining the best stats from Tottenham players including himself, albeit a bit reluctantly.

Each of the six stats that make up a FIFA player card — Pace, Shooting, Passing, Dribbling, Defense, and Physical — were included, and the end result is a Frankenstein’s Monster of skill that you would never want to go up against (though, we’d take him on our squad).

So, let’s take a look at what Son managed to cook up, starting with Pace, and running on through the list:

Pace — Lucas Moura

EA Sports
Lucas is certainly speedy, so we can’t fault Son here.

For any fan of the Spurs, the choice of Lucas Moura for best Pace will come as no surprise, boasting a highly decent 92 on his regular gold card.

“Lucas is definitely faster than me,” Son laughed, when prodded by Meyer that he might actually have the edge in speed. EA apparently agrees, only giving the Winger an 88 Pace for his standard card.

Shooting — Harry Kane

Who else but Harry Kane? That 92 shooting will fit in quite nicely.

For shooting, the choice was none other than Harry Kane, who comes in with 92 in that category, one of the highest on Tottenham.

Again, Son was reluctant to name himself. Possibly because he’s a crack FIFA expert and was aware Kane has six more points in shooting than his 86, that, or he’s just doesn’t want to leave anyone out.

Dribbling — Lucas Moura

Despite considering Steven Bergwijn and himself (again) for best dribbling on Tottenham, Son once again went with the reliable pick of Moura.

While Bergwijn is only an 85 DRB, it could have really gone either way between the final two contestants, but an unwillingness to give himself much credit led to Lucas getting picked once again.

Passing — Giovani Lo Celso

Argentine Giovani Lo Celso was Son’s pick for Tottenham’s best passer.

For Passing, Midfielder Giovani Lo Celso got the nod, but only comes in with an 82 for his standard card in the stat. Still, we have to remember this was only Tottenham players that were able to be picked.

That, and Son has hooked with Son quite a few times for memorable goals over their careers, which could have been another factor in the pick.

Defending —Toby Alderweireld

Belgian back Toby Alderweireld’s 85 DEF got him a spot on the Ultimate card.

After joking that the upgrade to make his DEF 45 for his latest POTM card might be enough to finally make him choose himself, Son made a more reasonable choice and went with Alderweireld.

87 Defence is definitely nothing to scoff at, and put together with our sixth and final stat, it helps to make this “Ultimate Card” absolutely freakish.

Physical — Moussa Sissoko

Looking at the stats, it’s easy to see why Sissoko got the pick here.

Finally, rounding things out at Physical is Moussa Sissoko who comes in with an 89 — his best stat by far. This was one area where Son probably wouldn’t be considered either, on top of Defense.

Altogether, we get a 99 OVR card boasting 92 Pace, 91 Shooting, 82 Passing, 87 Dribbling, 87 Defense, and 89 Physical. Just imagine for a moment the price tag that would come along with the SBC for this bad boy.

EA Sports
An absolute monstrosity, in more ways than one.

Luckily, Son’s Ultimate Teammate card will most likely never make it into FIFA 21 itself, as it would be massively overpowered — if you haven’t picked up on that already.
