share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

The first Showdown SBC of FIFA 21 is over, and we have a winner!

Sevilla are the side that came out on top in their La Liga clash with Villarreal earlier today, which spells great news for those who completed the Marcos Acuna SBC.

Marcos Acuna Upgrade

The Argentinian fullback began the day as an 86-rated special card, but he'll soon see that rating shoot up!

As per the rules of the Showdown SBC, Acuna will receive a +2 to his OVR having been on the winning side in the real-life meeting between the two sides.

It means that 160k estimated cost seems like a bit of a bargain now, doesn't it!

88 OVR

The jump from 86-88 has taken place, and he now ranks among the best left backs in the game!

His pace has jumped from 89 into the early 90s, whilst 77 Shooting is not bad for a left back!

Solid all-round attributes make Acuna La Liga's top choice for left back on FUT 21.

Francis Coquelin

However, where there are winners, there must be losers.

And unfortunately for many, that loser is Villarreal's Francis Coquelin.

The French midfielder played no part in today's game due to injury, so it seems apt that he won't be receiving any upgrade to that 85-rated card released earlier in the week.

It's not all doom and gloom though, as the 85-rated card is still very good, but it won't be getting any better.
