FIFA 21 Drops a Third Batch of Road to the Final Cards Into FUT

FIFA 21 has dropped another set of Road to the Final players into packs. These live cards upgrade if the player's team wins in a major European competition.

FIFA 21 is dropping quite a bit of new content into FUT today. Not only have we gotten yet another new player SBC, but there’s also a new objective player to earn in Kevin Volland. Plus, all the Prime Icons are now in packs. Not that you’ll pack one, but at least it’s a possibility. However, the biggest news is that EA has put a third set of Road to the Final cards into packs. As a reminder, these are live, so they can get boosted down the line if their team does well in Champions League or Europa League competition. Check out the squad.

I don’t think I’ll surprise anyone when I tell you that Raphael Varane’s live card is going to cost an arm and a leg. Maybe even a kidney to boot. He’s the most popular defender in the game, and Real Madrid will probably advance past Atalanta in the Champions League. Other players in that competition that should probably advance are David Alaba, Joao Cancelo, and Julian Brandt. It’s not a sure thing, but their teams seem poised to advance.

Elsewhere in the Champions League competition, you have players like Gini Wijnaldum and Mauro Icardi. If I were betting, Gini should get the boost, but Wijnaldum’s Liverpool squad is missing some key defenders. And look, PSG is a good team, but they’re up against Barcelona. That’s essentially a toss-up.

What is incredibly odd is that there aren’t any Chelsea players included. That team is killing it in domestic play and didn’t have a player in either of previous teams outside of an SBC. It seems weird to not include such a big club.

On the Europa League side, most of these seem more like a sure thing. Lorenzo Insigne’s Napoli side has a tough test with Granada but should have the horsepower to advance. The same goes for Ante Rebic and his Milan team against Red Star Belgrade. Ajax and Dusan Tadic have Lille, which seems winnable as well.

The other two seem like a bit more of a toss-up. Paul Pogba’s Manchester United team should deal with Real Sociedad, but it feels like we never know which United team is going to show up. And then there’s Takefusa Kubo and Villareal. They’ll have to go up against Red Bull Salzburg. It’s winnable, but, much like PSG vs. Barcelona, I don’t think I’d bet on this one.

All told, I don’t mind this selection of players. Obviously, guys like Varane, Wijnaldum, and Pogba are going to cost a fortune. However, some of the lower-tier players are both affordable and fun. For instance, that Insigne would sit nicely in my Serie A squad. The same goes for Rebic. And, as someone who always uses Kubo in my career mode saves, he will be a super sub for me almost immediately. It’ll be interesting to see if we get a few more RTTF players over the course of the next week.

FIFA 21 is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. The third RTTF team is in packs for the next 10 days. Plus, FUT Freeze is still happening, giving you plenty to do. Make sure to check back tomorrow to see who the next player is.
