EA Sports added a Showdown 88-rated version of Gerard Piqué from Barcelona to FIFA 22 on Dec. 4. It’s obtainable through FIFA 22 Ultimate Team’s squad-building challenges (SBC) menu.

This SBC is based on the real-life match between Barcelona and Bayern Munich, happening on Dec. 8. Because of that, EA also added an 88-rated version of Niklas Süle from Bayern Munich. The winner will receive a +2 overall in-game upgrade.

This is Piqué’s first special card in FIFA 22. As such, EA has mainly increased his Pace (+22), Dribbling (+10), and Physical (+9), while barely upgrading the rest of his skills when you compare this Showdown version to his 84-rated gold card.

Even though he has high skills, he only has two-star skill moves and a three-star weak foot. You can apply the shadow chemistry style to greatly increase his Pace (+10) and Defending (+8), which will maximize his Interceptions, Standing, and Sliding Tackle stats.

This SBC costs around 147,200 FUT coins on PlayStation, 148,400 on Xbox, and 150,450 FUT coins on PC. The prices of both players are similar but Piqué has more balanced stats than Süle. Piqué will be an overpowered card if he receives the +2 upgrade after the match.

If you want to complete the Showdown Piqué SBC, you’ll have to turn in two squads: Tactical Emulation and LaLiga. The first solution requires an 84-rated squad with 70 chemistry minimum, one TOTW (Inform) card, and at least one player from Barcelona. The second one asks for an 86-rated squad with 65 chemistry minimum and at least one player from LaLiga.
