Player Review

As this isn't a brand new card to FIFA 21, we'll refrain from going over the stats again, but instead, we'll work out whether or not it's worth completing the SBC instead of purchasing Hierro from the market.

Currently, Hierro is trading for around 450k on the transfer market, some 5k more than you would pay to complete this SBC.

In our opinion, unless you've already used Hierro and know he works for your side, we'd avoid completing this SBC and take the tradeable version instead.

Whilst you will get some money back in the form of the pack rewards, none of the packs are massively appealing.

Take the safe bet with the transfer market here.
