EA Sports added a new set of Marquee Matchups to FIFA 21 Ultimate Team today that you can complete by accessing the squad-building challenge (SBC) menu.

The Marquee Matchups are weekly challenges themed around real soccer’s key matchups. EA selects some matches and creates SBCs that reward players with some tradeable FUT packs. This SBC is themed around this week’s key matchups.

You’ll have until next Thursday, Sept. 2 to complete four squads: KAA Gent vs. Club Brugge, Rangers vs. Celtic, VfL Wolfsburg vs. RB Leipzig, and Atlético Madrid vs. Villarreal CF. A new set of Marquee Matchups will then be added to FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

Each squad requires a different set of conditions to be met aside from the commonly known minimum rating and chemistry, like asking for some players from a specific league or club. Each solution offers a different reward as well, ranging from a premium electrum players pack to jumbo premium gold players pack.

The KAA Gent vs. Club Brugge squad, for example, asks for a 75-rated squad with 75 chemistry minimum, one rare card, at least four players from the same nation, five different clubs, and one player from 1A Pro League. Those who complete it will be rewarded with a premium electrum players pack.

Here are all of the conditions and rewards for each segment you’ll have to do to complete this Marquee Matchups SBC.
