FIFA 21 Ultimate Team: Lassina Traore set for HUGE upgrade after five-star showing in Ajax' 13-0 win!

It's been a crazy Premier League season in terms of results, but none have been quite as crazy as what we've just witnessed over in the Netherlands.

13 is known as being a pretty unlucky number, and that rang true for VVV Venlo today after they were beaten 13-0(!) by Ajax this evening.

Lassina Traore picked up five goals for the league leaders, we think it's safe to say he'll feature in this weeks TOTW.

Rating

Despite his five-goal showing today, Lassina Traore is just a 68-rated silver card on this years FIFA Ultimate Team.

He has just two stats in the 70's - 76-rated pace and 73-rated physicality - with the Ajax forward rated just 68 OVR in terms of his shooting. Ouch.

His real life performance has seen his value shoot up on the transfer market.

At time of writing he is trading for around 9.8k on PS4 and Xbox One

TOTW 5?

It's rare we say this, but without a doubt we'll see Traore feature in the upcoming Team of the Week.

But how generous will EA be in terms of an upgrade, here's what we think that inevitable TOTW card will look like.

It would certainly be a big improvement for the Burkina Faso international but after scoring five goals in a 13-0 rout, could you really question it?
