YouTuber Oliver ‘Reev’ Fletcher has dubbed Alex Sandro’s new 91-rated Moments SBC the “best left-back in FIFA 20,” and explained why he believes the Brazilian star’s “phenomenal” upgrade card has no equal in Ultimate Team.

EA Sports have been releasing more and more Player Moments SBCs towards the end of the FIFA 20 cycle. Recently, the FUT devs dropped one of the highest-rated left-back cards in the title yet, Alex Sandro’s Player Moments SBC.

The 91-rated Juventus defender immediately shot to the top of the left-back totem pole. Only Icon Roberto Carlos (91 and 93) and TOTY Andrew Robertson (94) are better on paper. But according to Reev, Sandro overshadows them all.

After finishing Sandro’s squad-building challenge ⁠— currently priced at just over 530k coins ⁠— the YouTuber took him straight into a game. Immediately, Reev dubbed him “phenomenal,” and added he's "pretty much an Icon."

“He’s probably the best left-back you can get in the game now… who’s better? I can’t think of anyone currently better than this guy. Just look at the stats,” the Englishman said, bagging a 3–0 rage-quit win in his very first match.

In particular, Reev pointed to Sandro’s defensively-minded stats as key to his quality. With 89 interceptions and 91 tackles, the Juventus star would be a “rock at the back,” the YouTuber said. 99 stamina and 91 aggression was just icing.

Reev also suggested slapping an Anchor chemistry (+PAC, +DEF) on the Brazillian. Reev did, though, pick a Backbone style (+PAS, +DEF, +PHY), before slotting him into a Bundesliga-cross-Serie A hybrid squad.

  • RB ⁠— Sergio Ramos (93)

  • LCDM ⁠— Birger Verstraete (88)
  • RCDM ⁠— Thomas Delany (87)
  • RM ⁠— Milot Rashica (86)
  • ST (L) ⁠— Neymar Jr. (94)
  • ST (R) ⁠— Eusébio (91)

How to get Alex Sandro’s Player Moments card

Sandro’s mega-upgrade is sticking around until the end of FIFA 20, unlike many SBCs, so the good news is you have plenty of time to polish it off.

The bad news is how costly the card is at the moment. On PC, the Serie A star’s challenge costs nearly 600k, while PlayStation and Xbox players will have to dole out around 530k to get their hands on the “phenomenal” card.
