EA Sports has added an 87-rated Showdown version of Rodrigo De Paul from Atlético de Madrid to FIFA 22 Ultimate Team. It’s obtainable through the game’s squad-building challenges (SBC) menu.

Players can also get an 87-rated version of Eric Bailly from Manchester United. These players will play against each other in the real-life UCL round-of-16 matchup between Atlético Madrid and Man United on Wednesday, Feb. 23. The winner will receive a +2 overall in-game upgrade. You have until that match happens to complete this SBC.

You’ll notice a slight increase in De Paul’s skills when compared to his 82-rated gold version. The devs upgraded his Defending (+9), Pace (+6), Passing (+5), Physical (+4), Shooting (+4), and Dribbling (+4). He has balanced skills and the upgrade could make him a powerful card.

De Paul also has four-star skill moves and a three-star weak foot. You can apply the shadow chemistry style to further increase his Pace (+10) and Defending (+8), which will maximize his Standing Tackle stat.

If you want to complete the Showdown De Paul SBC, you’ll have to turn in two squads: Argentina and LaLiga. The first segment asks for an 83-rated squad with 75 chemistry minimum, at least one TOTW (Inform) card, and one player from Argentina. The second one requires an 86-rated team with 60 chemistry minimum, at least one TOTW (Inform) card, and a player from LaLiga.

This SBC costs around 196,350 FUT coins on PlayStation, 192,600 on Xbox, and 198,400 on PC if you build the squads from scratch. You’ll also receive a small prime electrum players pack and a rare electrum players pack.
