It's double trouble in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team

This must be a footballing first.

Footballing twins Lars & Sven Bender will be retiring together at the end of the season, with the Bayer Leverkusen duo not having their contracts renewed at Bayer Leverkusen.

Their careers are being celebrated in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, in the latest End of an Era SBCs.

Lars Bender SBC

AUF WIEDERSEHEN - Lars has been at Bayer Leverkusen since 2009

If you're looking for a Bundesliga right back, you can't go wrong with Lars thanks to his 92 pace, 97 defending and 83 physicality.

Requirements & Solutions

Die Mannschaft

  • Min. 1 Player from Germany
  • Min. Team Ratings: 84
  • Min. Team Chemistry: 65

Reward: x1 Small Rare Mixed Players Pack

THINK SMART - Not one of these players is German

Cost: 109,000 coins (PS4), 112,000 coins (Xbox One)

Twin Defense

  • Min. 1 Player from Bayer Leverkusen
  • Min. 1 Player: Team of the Week
  • Min. Team Rating: 84

Reward: x1 Prime Mixed Players

HORSES FOR COURSES - Strikers at right back and goalkeepers in defence

Given that the only alternative Bundesliga right back that can rival Lars Bender for pace is Kevin Mbabu, this is a very tempting move.

250,000+ coins is still plenty, and perhaps if you're patient, you can hold off for Kevin Mbabu's What If item - but that may not drop in price until Team of the Season arrives.

Sven Bender SBC

SEEING DOUBLE - Which Bender bro takes your fancy?

Sven Bender, on the other hand, offers great balance in the centre of defence.

The German has an insane 90 defending stats, and is aided by 86 physicality and 81 pace.

It's a similar situation for Sven Bender, with a couple of alternatives that are slightly more expensive on the FUT market.

Lukas Klostermann's Champions League RTTF item (OVR 85) offers 87 pace and 87 defending, but will set you back over 300,000 coins, whilst Manuel Akanji RTTF card (OVR 87) costing upwards of 380,000 coins.

So again, try to wait a few weeks for those prices to fall further.
