How to complete FIFA 22 Fabinho & Rodrygo Showdown SBC

Players can secure one or both of Fabinho and Rodrygo as part of the new FIFA 22 Ultimate Team Showdown SBC.

Fabinho Rodrygo FIFA 22 Showdown SBC

As the iconic Champions League Final between Liverpool and Real Madrid approaches, FIFA 22 players will have the opportunity to complete the Fabinho and Rodrygo Showdown SBC.

While Ultimate Team players are currently focusing on securing the best TOTS cards available, EA have released two more top cards with the Fabinho and Rodrygo Showdown SBC.

Players in your squad from the previously released Premier League TOTS and LaLiga TOTS are sure to provide excellent linking options with Fabhinho and Rodrygo.

The Champions League Final will take place on May 28 and the winner of the match will receive an in-game upgrade of +2. Here’s everything you need to know about the Fabinho & Rodrygo Showdown SBC.

The base version of Showdown Fabinho is excellent, however, without the +2 upgrade, you may have a hard time justifying the steep price you’ll have to pay. Nonetheless, if you’re flush with coins and fodder, Fabinho is a great addition even at this stage of the game.

Fabinho is one of the best CDMs in the game and if you run a Premier League squad, he’ll be a massive improvement from TOTS Rice, Fernandes, Silva, and Fred. His 94 Standing Tackle and 92 Interceptions will surely result in Fabinho winning many loose balls in the middle of the pitch.

FIFA 22 Showdown Rodrygo SBC stats

Rodrygo FIFA 22 SBC stats

If you completed the Isco SBC, then Rodrygo is a no-brainer. The winger is slightly cheaper than Fabinho but still quite expensive. You’ll certainly be able to justify the price if Rodrygo moves to 94 overall.

5* skill moves and 4* weak foot is a great combination, while 97 Agility, Sprint Speed, and Acceleration make him incredibly quick. He also has the movement stats like 96 Balance and 95 Dribbling to go with that pace.

How to complete FIFA 22 Showdown Fabinho SBC

To complete this SBC players will need to give up four squads: Liverpool, Brazil, Premier League, and Top Form. Costing around 470,000 coins, Fabinho is considered a luxury option at CDM. You’ll have to gather a ton of fodder and coins to complete this FIFA 22 SBC.

The Fabinho and Rodrygo Showdown SBCs are available until May 28 (10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST) before Liverpool and Real Madrid go head to head in France.

Given their prices, most players will have to choose between one or the other, so it really comes down to who you think will win the final. Both cards will feel incredible in-game when boosted to 94, but they’re still great options at 92.

FIFA 22 Team of the Week: TOTW 36 & featured players

EA have announced another FIFA 22 Team of the Week. We’ve got everything you need to know, as well as the full FIFA 22 TOTW 36 lineup.

It’s time for another FIFA 22 Team of the Week. In FIFA 22 TOTW 36, there are some huge names for people to add to their teams and we’ve got all the details listed for you.

Ultimate Team remains the most popular mode in the FIFA series. One of the many reasons for this is incorporating real-world football into its addictive gameplay loop through special cards, such as Icons or the upcoming TOTS.

One of the mode’s oldest promotions is ‘Team of the Week’, which offers players a weekly batch of upgraded cards, based on real-life player performances the previous week, to help build out their squads.

We’ll be updating this hub with the latest FIFA 22 TOTW news, so be sure to check back here every week.

Here are the full updates for FIFA 22’s Team of the Week 36.

FIFA 22 FUT TOTW 36

The FIFA 22 TOTW 36 is here and the star power is shining this week with Manchester City and A.C Milan being crowned champions of their leagues on the final day of the season. For those who like to try out new cards and have the funds to do so, FIFA’s TOTW is great.

Check out the full squad for the FIFA 22 TOTW 36 here.

What are TOTW cards in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team?

Team of the Week items are special cards that boost stats based on that player’s performance in the previous week of real-world games. Any player awarded an in-form will see both their ratings and in-game stats get a permanent increase.

Every week, EA unveils a 23-man squad of the stars who had the best games in the previous domestic or international fixtures round. They could be awarded for a last-minute winner in a big game or a heroic performance from a goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet.

Each TOTW is available in packs for an entire week until it is replaced by the next squad on the following Wednesday. Players can’t receive an in-form two weeks in a row.

While an in-form card is in packs, it replaces the base version of that player. The normal card will return to packs when that TOTW is over.

In FIFA 22, EA has addressed fans’ complaints that TOTW items are often quickly rendered useless by the other promotional cards added to the game throughout the year.

Every week, one player will receive a special Featured TOTW card. These players will receive a larger boost than the rest of the squad in an attempt to make them more desirable to those building their teams.

To qualify for this additional stat boost, the player must have a base card that is under 80-rated and not have any other performance-based card in packs – such as a Ones to Watch.

When is the TOTW released?

Historically, EA announces the latest TOTW every Wednesday so that any Monday night games can be considered.

Each new team is normally Tweeted out around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT with a full look at every upgrade.

The Ligue 1 TOTS is set to hit FIFA 22 Ultimate Team very soon, celebrating the very best players that the French league has to offer. Here’s everything we know about FIFA 22 Ligue TOTS, from the release date to squad leaks.

FIFA 22 TOTS is well and truly underway, and EA is showering its players constantly with new and exciting content. The Premier League, Bundesliga, and LaLiga squads have made quite an impact on many FUT teams, and the Ligue 1 squad is set to follow suit.

In recent years, Ligue 1 has emerged as one of the most popular leagues in Ultimate Team, with many of the game’s biggest names plying their trade over in France for PSG, Lille, and other clubs. Unsurprisingly, this means the Ligue 1 is always one of the most-anticipated releases of the year.

We’ve got everything you need to know about FIFA 22 Ligue 1 TOTS right here, including the release date, players we expect to feature, and squad leaks.

The French league will take center stage for an entire week before being replaced by Serie A on the following Friday.

Unfortunately, the Ligue 1 TOTS will not take fan votes into account. While the likes of the Premier League and Bundesliga always allow players to vote, other leagues are hand-picked by EA themselves.

The schedule never mentioned a voting window for the French league, and with the squad arriving on May 27, EA will be selecting the elite players involved.
