The Road to the Final lineup just got even better.
A new crop of players was released in the second drop on Friday evening, but now we have another in the form of Porto loanee, Felipe Anderson.
Road to the Final Felipe Anderson Information
The Brazilian is currently midway through a season long loan deal with the Portuguese giants, who currently sit in second place in their Champions League group.
Here is the key information as you decide whether or not the Brazilian is worth adding to your side.
Start & Expiry Date
Start Date: Sunday, November 15 - 6pm GMT
Expiry Date: Sunday, November 22 - 6pm GMT
EA are asking for just the solitary squad in return for the Porto winger.
Here is what you'll need to stump up in return for Anderson.
- Brazilian Players: Minimum One
- Team of the Week Players: Minimum One
- Team Rating: Minimum 84
- Team Chemistry: Minimum 80
Liga NOS teams are pretty rare in FIFA 21. Brazilian teams on the other hand..
There is a plethora of Brazilian talent out on that left flank though, so how does Felipe Anderson compare to those already available?
Well he's much cheaper than Neymar Jr, but that's to be expected given his rating. At around the 50k mark, Anderson is quite similar to the base version of Douglas Costa and fellow UCL Live card Taison.
In terms of total in-game stats, Anderson trumps Costa with 464 compared to Costa's 437, but Taison narrowly edges both with 465.
Andersons 81-rated passing is better than both however, and, with a 4* weak foot, he also beats the 3* weak foot held by his two fellow countrymen.
Let's not forget that this card is still capable of getting better should Porto navigate their way out of Group C, and they are in a good position to do so.
If you're after a Liga NOS LM then yes, no question.
If you're after a Brazilian, then it's a toss up between Felipe or Taison.
At present we'd say Taison just edges it, and he's tradable, which is a huge help.
That being said, Porto look a safer bet to progress out of their UCL group compared to Shakhtar who are in a very difficult group.
The choice is yours, it really is a close call!
