Lewandowski will be overlooked for TOTW despite hat-trick

What If Team 2 is now live, but how are things shaping up as far as TOTW is concerned?

The 24th instalment of the weekly promo is set to arrive in FIFA 21 this Wednesday, but who can we expect to see?

Hat-trick hero Lewandowski

Bayern Munich's star striker Robert Lewandowski stole the headlines once again as the European champions beat rivals Borrusia Dortmund 4-2 on Saturday.

After going 2-0 down in the first half, Lewandowski quickly turned things around for the German title holders, grabbing two goals before the half-time whistle.

Goretzka made it 3-2 to Bayern in the 88th minute, with Robert Lewandowski topping off an excellent comeback with a stunning strike from outside the box to get his hat-trick.

TOTW 24

A hat-trick in Bayern's big win against rivals Dortmund should have been enough to earn Lewandowski a spot in TOTW 24, which is scheduled for release on Wednesday, March 10.

It would have been the Pole's fourth in-form of the season, which would have seen him receive a 95-rated OVR TOTW card.

However, due to Lewandowski's inclusion in TOTW 23, we will not get the card we all wanted.

95-rated Lewandowski would've been one of the best strikers in the game - a scary thought for opponents' weekend league defences.

Don't worry though, as we are sure the Polish goal-machine will feature in another TOTW before the end of the FUT calendar!
