FIFA 21 Road to the Final Team One Adds Some Filthy New Cards to FUT
FIFA 21 kicks off the fan-favorite Road to the Final promo with a team full of popular players that are sure to make your Weekend League even sweatier.
FIFA 21 is far from the best playing FIFA EA Sports has ever put out. That said, the content team in FUT has mostly been killing it since the game launched in early October. Thus far, we’ve had several solid promos and a staggering number of great Objectives to play for. Today, the team kicked off the popular Road to the Final promo. This introduces new player cards into the game that upgrade if the player’s real-world team progresses in either the Champion’s League or Europa League. Team one is in packs now and includes a few massive names. Check it out below.
The big names are pretty obvious here. Obviously, guys like Mo Salah and Antoine Griezmann are going to be incredibly expensive to put into your team. It’s still early days, but as of this writing, they’re both coming in at well over a million coins. Speaking of expensive, Marcus Rashford will be the other big-money card from this team. He’s one of the most meta strikers in the Premier League, and if Manchester United can get through its group, he’ll be particularly nasty.
Outside of those three, the other most-hyped player has to be Alphonso Davies. The Canadien is already one of the best left-backs in the game, and Bayern Munich is almost assuredly making it through the group stage. Joining him for a deadly Bundesliga trio are Lukas Klostermann and Denis Zakaria. Klostermann’s Leipzig might not make it through a tough Group H, but Zakaria’s Monchengladbach could escape from a topsy-turvy Group B.
Another player that might be worthy of consideration for a supersub could be Taison. Shakhtar Donetsk is in the same group as Monchengladbach and could very well come out if Real Madrid and Inter Milan can’t settle into their expected form.
Rounding out the first team are Jan Oblak, Luis Muriel, Morgan Sanson, and Ivan Perisic. Of those four, Oblak is worth a look. He’s already a 92-rated keeper, and Atletico Madrid should advance. Perisic might also be worth a shout given how crazy Group B is. Muriel’s chances are a bit of a tossup, and Sanson will almost certainly get knocked out.
Of course, you don’t just have to rely on pack luck and trading to get some RTTF cards in your club. Sevilla’s Jules Kounde is in Objectives. He looks pretty easy to unlock if you need a La Liga or French center-back. And Chelsea’s Mason Mount is available via SBCs. Personally, I was hoping for Christian Pulisic to take that place, but Mount is a fun player. He doesn’t look too expensive, especially if Chelsea can make a run.
For now, there aren’t any Europa League teams in this first batch. That said, I would expect them to be well-represented in the second team and in Objectives or SBCs. FIFA 20 had several fun players from that competition. I don’t see why FIFA 21 would be any different.
