How to complete FIFA 22 Barnes & Götze Showdown SBC

Barnes and Götze are up for grabs via a new SBC as part of the FIFA 22 Ultimate Team Showdown Series promo.



Showdown Series Gotze Barnes FIFA 22

As the Conference League clash between Leicester City and PSV approaches, FIFA 22 players will have the opportunity to complete the Barnes and Götze Showdown Series SBC.

The brand-new Showdown Series promo is continuously delivering Showdown SBCs until the promo comes to an end on April 8. There have been some impressive additions so far and the Barnes and Götze SBC is yet another great inclusion.

The Conference League match between Leicester City and PSV will take place on April 7 and the result will lead to in-game upgrades for one or both of Barnes and Götze.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Barnes & Götze Showdown SBC.

Barnes is far from an elite option at this stage in the game but given the affordable cost of his SBC, as well as the potential for an upgrade, the wide player is still worth completing. His Pace and Dribbling are already fantastic and with an upgrade, his Shooting will also enter the 90s.

Given his nationality and club association, Barnes is easy enough to fit into most Ultimate Team squads. Barnes’ major weakness is without a doubt his disappointing 3* skill moves, as most top players prefer at least 4* when it comes to their wide players.

Much like Barnes, Götze is slightly underwhelming but with a potential upgrade, the midfielder can prove to be a fearsome option. His Shooting is surprisingly adequate with 99 Volleys, 87 Finishing, and 92 Positioning.

Of course, it’s the range of Passing and Dribbling that Götze is known for which will attract players to this card. 4* skill moves and weak foot are great assets for a midfielder and if you don’t use Eredivisie players you can always use him as a super sub.

How to complete FIFA 22 Showdown Barnes SBC

To complete this SBC players will need to give up two squads: England and Premier League. Costing around 73,000 coins, Barnes’ FIFA 22 SBC should be accessible to the majority of Ultimate Team players.

You can check out the cheapest solutions below.

England requirements

  • # of players from England: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 82
  • Team Chemistry: Min 80

England solution – Cost: 12,600 coins

How to complete FIFA 22 Showdown Götze SBC

To complete this SBC you’ll need to give up only one squad: Mario Götze. With a value of around 68,000 coins, Götze is yet another affordable Showdown Series player up for grabs.

You can check out the cheapest solutions below.

Mario Götze requirements

  • # of players from Germany: Min 1
  • # of TOTW players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 84
  • Team Chemistry: Min 60

Mario Götze solution – Cost: 67,800 coins

Mario Gotze SBC solution FIFA 22

The Barnes and Götze Showdown SBCs are available until April 7 (10 AM PDT / 1 PM EDT / 6 PM GMT / 7 PM CET) before Leicester vs PSV begins.

As unique as they may be, Eredivisie squads should have no problem slotting Götze into their teams. While Harvey Barnes could appeal to Ultimate Team players considering Leicester are the favorites to win at home.

Given how both players are extremely affordable, completing these SBCs will add a low-risk high-reward option to most squads. They’re also excellent first owned players which will help with completing various Objectives down the line.

The rewards are dropped monthly throughout the season, so be sure to keep an eye on EA’s social media for the latest releases.

FIFA 22 Ultimate Team: Team of the Week 36 predictions: Di Maria, Gundogan, Abraham

FIFA 22’s Team of the Week 36 is set to drop on May 25, and we’ve predicted who will get an in-form card with major stat upgrades.



FIFA 22 TOTW 36 predictions

There were plenty of memorable games and goals in the world of football last week. EA Sports are set to drop some new in-form players in packs, and here are the players we think will feature in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team’s Team of the Week 36.

Each and every week, EA drops the Team of the Week into FIFA 22 Ultimate Team to reward the stars who made the headlines in the previous round of fixtures.

The chosen squad of players receive a special card in packs for the next week for FUT fans to hunt down and use to improve their teams.

Next up is Team of the Week 36, so here are our predictions of who will be included in the next FUT TOTW lineup.

FIFA 22 TOTW 36 release date & time

FIFA’s Team of the Week drops weekly, so players can expect TOTW 36 to release on Wednesday, May 25, 2022, at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT, with an announcement from EA usually coming shortly before.

TOTW cards replace the normal cards of the player in packs for the duration of the week, meaning that the upgraded card is the only version it’s possible to pack for seven days.

Each wave of in-forms remains in packs until they are replaced by the next Team of the Week on the following Wednesday.

FIFA 22 TOTW 36 predictions

Chelsea players celebrating in FIFA 22

PSG thrashed Metz on the final day of the season and while Mbappe’s hat-trick was impressive, his likely involvement in the upcoming Ligue 1 TOTS squad should keep him out of TOTW 36. Instead, Angel Di Maria, the man who is departing the club, should receive an in-form card.

Over in the Premier League, Gundogan was the hero of a thrilling Manchester City comeback that saw them secure the title on the final day of the season. Olivier Giroud and Rafael Leão also made major contributions toward a title win on the last day of the season. Don’t be surprised to see one or both of the A.C. Milan players involved this week.

We’ll have to wait until Wednesday to find out the official squad for Team of the Week 36, but, until then, here are our best predictions.

  • Angel Di Maria – PSG – RW
  • Ilkay Gundogan – Manchester City – CM
  • Olivier Giroud – A.C Milan – ST
  • Rafael Leão – A.C Milan – LW
  • Jack Harrison – Leeds – LM
  • Andy Delort – Nice – ST
  • Joaquin Correa – Inter Milan – CF
  • Dejan Kulusevski – Tottenham – RW
  • Mario Balotelli– Adana Demirspor – ST
  • Diego Lopez – Espanyol – GK
  • Joël Veltman – Brighton – CB
  • Cédric Soares– Arsenal – RB
  • Alexander Nubel  – Monaco – GK
  • Reece James – Chelsea – RWB
  • Rodrigo De Paul  – Atletico Madrid – CM
  • Andre-Pierre Gignac – Tigres – ST
  • Tammy Abraham – Roma – ST

Those were our FIFA 22 Team of the Week 36 predictions. We update this page every seven days with the next batch of TOTW guesses, so be sure to check back here every week.
