EA Sports added a Showdown 89-rated version of Francisco Alcácer from Villarreal to FIFA 21 today. It’s obtainable through FIFA 21 Ultimate Team’s squad-building challenges (SBC) menu.

EA also added a 88-rated version of Frederico “Fred” de Paula Santos from Manchester United. These players will play against each other on the real-life pitch on Saturday, May 26 and the winner will receive a +2 overall in-game upgrade. You can complete this SBC until the match happens.

EA generally upgraded all of Alcácer’s stats, including Physical (+18), Passing (+17), Pace (+13), Dribbling (+9), Shooting (+8), and his Defending (+5), when you compare this Showdown version to his 81-rated base gold card.

Showdown Alcácer is a great card when you look at his stats and the possibility of the upgrade. He has four-star skill moves and weak foot, which will help you to build some great attacking plays. You can apply the deadeye chemistry style to further increase his Shooting (+5), Pace(+5), and Physical (+5).

This SBC costs around 259,500 FUT coins on PlayStation and 263,750 on Xbox, but it’s a bit more expensive on PC (325,750 FUT coins). This is a fair price, though, especially because it can receive an additional boost if Villarreal wins. You can also easily link Showdown Alcácer with some of the TOTS Series A cards that were added so far.

If you want to complete the Showdown Alcácer SBC, you’ll have to turn in just one 86-rated squad with 50 chemistry minimum, one Inform or TOTS Moments card, and at least one player from LaLiga.
