A great but expensive card.

EA Sports added an 86-rated Player of the Month (POTM) version of Jonathan Bamba from Lille to FIFA 21 today. This item is available through the squad-building challenge (SBC) menu in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

This is Bamba’s second special card in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. The 24-year-old French winger won the Ligue 1 POTM trophy for creating goals for Lille during the month of October. This SBC will expire on Dec. 19.

EA has boosted all of Bambas’s stats, including Passing (+8), Shooting (+6), Dribbling (+4), Physical (+4), and Pace (+4), when you compare this new card to Bamba’s 82-rated Inform. This POTM version of Bamba has great stats overall and can be deadly if you apply the finisher chemistry style to boost his Shooting and Dribbling stats even more.

This SBC costs around 330,000 FUT coins on console and is more expensive on PC (around 360,000 FUT coins). Although the card itself is great, it does look a bit overpriced for an untradeable player. If you don’t have too many FUT coins, completing this SBC will probably hurt your coin balance for weeks.

If you want to complete the POTM Bamba SBC, you’ll have to turn in three different squads. The first must be an 85-rated with 80 chemistry minimum, one Inform, and at least one player from the Ligue 1. The second team must be an 86-rated with 75 chemistry minimum, and at least one French player. The third solution is an 86-rated squad with 70 chemistry minimum and one Inform.

Here’s the cheapest solution to complete POTM Bamba SBC right now, according to FUTBIN, a website that specializes in FIFA content.
