EA Sports added a Showdown 86-rated version of Antonio Rüdiger from Chelsea to FIFA 21 on March 13. It’s obtainable through FIFA 21 Ultimate Team’s squad-building challenges (SBC) menu.

EA also added an 86-rated version of Thomas Lemar from Atlético de Madrid. These players will play against each other in the real world on March 17 and the winner will receive a +2 overall in-game upgrade.

This Rüdiger’s first special card and EA has somewhat boosted all of his skills, including Dribbling (+11), Passing (+9), Pace (+7), Physical (+6), Defending (+5), and Shooting (+5), when you compare the Showdown version to his 81-rated gold card.

Showdown Rüdiger’s star skill is his 87-rated Defending. He only has two-star skills and a three-star weak foot, however, which is way lower than Showdown Lemar. You can apply the shadow chemistry style to greatly increase his Pace (+10) and Shooting (+8), which are related to his center-back position.

This SBC costs around 240,300 FUT coins on PS4 and 231,000 FUT coins on Xbox One, but it’s a bit more expensive on PC (271,100 FUT coins). The prices of both players are similar and are a bit high for their stats, especially for Rüdiger’s low skills and weak foot. Even if Rüdiger receives the +2 upgrade after the match, this would still be an overpriced card.

If you want to complete the Showdown Rüdiger SBC, you’ll have to turn in two squads: Chelsea and League Finesse. The first solution requires an 83-rated squad with 80 chemistry minimum, one Inform card, and at least one player from Chelsea. The second one asks for an 85-rated squad with 60 chemistry minimum and at least one player from Premier League.
