EA Sports added a 92-rated Team of the Season (TOTS) Flashback version of Marcelo da Silva from Real Madrid to FIFA 21 Ultimate Team today. This item is available through the squad-building challenge (SBC) menu in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

This is Marcelo’s first special card. He’s part of the LaLiga TOTS promotion and will be available until May 14. Team of the Season celebrates and highlights the best players who had a large impact on their respective clubs in the different leagues across Europe.

EA has greatly upgraded most of Marcelo’s skills, including Defending Physical (+13), Passing (+12), Pace (+11), Shooting (+5), and his Dribbling (+5), when compared to his 83-rated gold version card.

This card is amazing. He has high stats, five-star skill moves, and a four-star weak foot. If you apply the anchor chemistry style, you’ll increase his Physical (+7), Pace (+5), and Defending (+5), which will maximize or almost maximize many of his skills, like Interception, Strength, Aggression, Standing, and Sliding Tackle.

If you prefer to focus the upgrade on one skill, you can also apply the shadow chemistry style to increase his Pace (+9) and Defending (+5) to maximize his Acceleration and Sprint Speed instead of his Strength and Aggression.

This SBC costs around 755,600 FUT coins on PS4, 737,750 on Xbox One, and is much more expensive on PC (961,450 FUT coins). This card is overpriced, despite its incredible stats. But he can also make perfect and strong links with other incredible EFL and Brazilian players, like 97-rated TOTS Benzema, 96-rated TOTY Ramos, 94-rated TOTS Casemiro, and legends such as Pelé, Ronaldo, and Garrincha.

If you want to complete TOTS Marcelo SBC, you’ll have to turn in five squads: Seleção, Los Blancos, La Liga, Top Performance, and 88-rated Squad. The first segment requires an 84-rated squad with 75 chemistry minimum, one Inform card, and at least one player from Brazil. The second one asks for an 85-rated squad with 70 chemistry minimum, one Inform, and at least one player from Real Madrid. The third solution needs to be an 86-rated squad with 65 chemistry minimum, one Inform, and at least one player from LaLiga. The fourth one asks for an 87-rated squad with 55 chemistry minimum and one Inform card. The fifth and last segment requires an 88-rated squad with 40 chemistry minimum.
