EA Sports added a 91-rated FUT Birthday version of Marco Reus from Borussia Dortmund to FIFA 21 today. This item will be available through the squad-building challenge (SBC) menu in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

Reus is a part of the first set of FUT Birthday cards. The FUT Birthday promo launched last week and will feature players with a five-star upgrade to either their skill moves or their weak foot rating.

This is Reus’ third special card in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. EA Sports mainly upgraded his Physical (+20) rating and generally increased his other stats, including Pace (+11), Dribbling (+5), Shooting (+4), Passing (+4), and Defending (+3), when compared to his 85-rated gold version. His skill moves were upgraded to five stars while his weak foot remained at four stars.

FUT Birthday Reus costs around 585,500 FUT coins on PlayStation 4, 553,500 on Xbox One, and has a higher price on PC (666,950 FUT coins). But this is an incredible card with high meta stats. You can improve his Pace (+5), Dribbling (+6), and Passing (+6) even further by applying the engine chemistry style.

If you want to complete the FUT Birthday Reus SBC, you’ll need to build three squads: Borussia Dortmund, National Duty, and Bundesliga. You’ll have until April 16 to complete these squads.

The first solution requires an 84-rated squad with 70 chemistry minimum and at least one player from Borussia Dortmund. The second squad asks for an 85-rated team with 65 chemistry minimum, one Inform card, and one German player. The third one needs to be an 87-rated squad with 50 chemistry minimum and one player from Bundesliga.
