The 18th Team of the Week (TOTW) is out now, and there is a superstar involved!
Neymar Jr. missed out on Team of the Year (TOTY), but he now has a brand-new card on FUT 21.
The TOTW 18 squad is a strong one, with the likes of Neymar Jr, Karim Benzema and Bernardo Silva all involved.
Click here to take a closer look at the full TOTW 18 squad.
The top pick this week is undeniably Neymar Jr.
With a huge 92 OVR, the Brazilian is already a popular player and his basic card costs over 700,000 coins!
His IF card is likely to cost you well over a million coins, so fingers crossed we get him in our FUT Champs rewards!
Recent SBC Layvin Kurzawa can provide a strong link from left back to LM or LW depending on your formation.
FUT Freeze Marquinhos would also provide a perfect link from midfield, while Kylian Mbappe is an expensive option up top.
Some cheaper chemistry links come from Brazil, with Chinese Super League stars Anderson Talisca and Alex Teixeira proving popular this season.
If you aren’t lucky enough to bag Neymar Jr or he doesn’t fit your team, then there are some cheaper alternatives to bring in instead.
Lorenzo Insigne and Eden Hazard are two left wingers that boast similar stats to Neymar Jr without breaking the bank!
There is always the option of non-IF Neymar Jr. for around 750,000 coins. Prime ICON John Barnes also offers similar stats and costs a little over 400,000.
Frenkie de Jong
Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong is another top player that could prove great value for money ahead of Weekend League.
With a new OVR of 86, the Dutch star is currently available for around 250,000 coins, although this is likely to change over the next couple of days!
A true box-to-box midfielder, de Jong can bring that added energy to your side.
Fortunately, we have seen several Dutch players released as SBCs recently.
Flashback Arjen Robben and Showdown Sean Klaiber are both excellent options for de Jong to link with.
Barca teammate Lionel Messi is another option, as is Liverpool colossus Virgil van Dijk!
There aren’t really any players that offer better value for money than de Jong!
For what he will cost, there are no central midfielders with more pace than the Barca star.
Last week’s TOTW did offer fellow Dutchman Teun Koopmeiners who can be used as a cheaper alternative.
