Real Madrid’s young Brazilian wing wizard Vinicius Jr has had his FIFA 20 Ultimate Team starting lineup revealed and he has a pretty modest squad compared to other professional players.

Since 2017, Vinicius Jr has been a world-renowned name in football, swapping Flamengo for Real Madrid for a whopping €45 million. Since that point, the 19-year-old has been cast into stardom – becoming a regular for Los Blancos, making 59 appearances and bagging seven goals.

He’s even become a key figure with FIFA 20 too. Starting up the game places you in a Volta game between Vinicius and a few of his teammates, while the FIFA Ultimate Team menus have plenty of his images. Though, his actual Ultimate Team squad isn’t as high-powered as you think it might be.

Vinicius has played a key role with FIFA 20.

The Brazilian’s team was revealed by Reddit user Timmo1984, who noted that they’d come up against him in a recent match. Obviously, to prove it was the real deal, Vinicius Jr’s 99-rated custom pro player card takes center stage – overshadowing some of his virtual teammates.

Though, like many other professional players, he does have plenty of Icons with Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, and Zinedine Zidane – his current manager at Real Madrid – all getting in on the action. 

Vinicius Jr’s FIFA 20 Ultimate Team Starting XI

  • GK: Thibaut Courtois – 88
  • LB: Ferland Mendy – 80
  • RB: Nelson Semedo – 84
  • CB: Raphael Varane – 85
  • CB: Lucas Hernandez – 84
  • CM: Zinedine Zidane – 94
  • CAM: N’Golo Kante – 89
  • CM: Ronaldinho – 91
  • RM: Hirving Lozano – 87
  • LM: Vinicius Jr – 99
  • ST: Ronaldo – 94

Having such a modest team with so many below 90-rated cards obviously opens up the possibility for plenty of upgrades. For a start, both Varane and Courtois could be changed to their 89 and 93-rated selves for an immediate boost.

Lozano is an unusual pick on the right-hand side, especially when La Liga already has Lionel Messi. However, it is Vinicius’ team so we’ll leave him to it.


How to complete FIFA 21 Current TOTW Upgrade SBC

EA SPORTS have rolled out a new Team of the Week-themed SBC in FIFA 21, allowing you to stock up on TOTW players. So, here’s what you need to know.

For the most part, squad building challenges – or SBCs – are focused on giving FIFA fans the chance to unlock special variant cards of their favorite players. 

These are usually like Player of the Month, Flashback, Player Moments, Road to the Final, or a number of different promos, but EA also sprinkles in something different at times too. These unique SBCs can be focused on cosmetics like kits, badges, and stadium upgrades – but there are also the ‘lucky bag’ type SBCs too. 

These SBCs come out at different points of the seasons, and the rewards are either completely random or locked to one particular set of cards. This time around, it’s all about Team of the Week.

Current TOTW Upgrade FIFA 21 SBC requirements

The SBC, called the Current TOTW Upgrade, isn’t all that difficult to grasp. You’ve got to build one squad, and in return, you’ll be given a Team of the Week pack. Unlike the previous TOTW Upgrade, the pack you get for this SBC is locked to the week you open it – rather than the past few weeks. 

With the reward being pretty random – there is no set rating for the player you’ll receive – EA haven’t rolled out an entirely difficult SBC. No, it’s just an 83-rated team, so you can hand over quite a bit of fodder to complete it, if you’ve got unusable cards in your club. 

You will, though, need to also have at least 50 team chemistry when its all said and done – so it can’t just a pile of random cards. But, again, it isn’t difficult. 

  • Current TOTW Upgrade: Min.83 Squad Rating, Min. 50 Team Chemistry, 11 players in the squad. Reward: TOTW Pack. 

Cheap solutions for FIFA 21 Current TOTW Upgrade SBC

Now, if you haven’t got useless cards upon useless cards stocked in your club, you will have to fork out to get the SBC completed. Though, it’s not incredibly expensive.

According to FUTBin, starting it from scratch will cost around 20,000-24,000 coins. But, we’ve got a few solutions that should save you a few coins too. 

Aside from bagging a guaranteed TOTW Card, the SBC is repeatable, so you can try your lcuk over and over – providing you have the coins or cards to do so.
