FIFA 21 Road to the Final Team 2 Is a Big Win for Serie A Squads
FIFA 21 Road to the Final Team two adds tons of new players to the game, while finally giving Serie A fans some much-deserved love.
Due to licensing, the Italian Serie A has been one of the under-served leagues in the popular Ultimate Team mode in FIFA 21. However, the second team in the ongoing Road to the Final promo is full of top talent from the league. Of course, they’re far from the only one with quality players popping up left-and-right for most leagues. That said, it finally feels like a good time to have a Serie A side. Check out the team below. And remember, each of these players can get an upgrade if their team advances in either the Champions League or Europa League.
If you’re looking for top-end players, you’re probably taking a hard look at Tottenham’s Moussa Sissoko. His base card is phenomenal, and with Tottenham set to get to the next round, he should get that upgrade. Another player most will give a look is Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus. Again, his base card is exceptional, and he plays in a league with a ton of great players. Expect both cards to cost a pretty penny.
Eden Hazard is another top player; however, Real Madrid hasn’t looked too hot in their group stage matches. They’ll probably get back to form, but you never know with football. I really want to see where guys like Julian Draxler, Quincy Promes, and Manuel Akanji end up price-wise. They’re all solid cards who, as of this writing are price-capped. Though, that will likely change as supply starts to meet demand. Grimaldo, Portu, and Ihlas Bebou round out the non-Serie A players in the squad. Bebou is particularly interesting because he’s an upgraded silver player. That means you could, in theory, get him out of a silver pack.
Now, on to the exciting part, at least for me. In packs, the Serie A has added both Franck Yannick Kessie and Kalidou Koulibaly. Kessie may be low-rated, but Milan should advance. Plus, his stats make him one of the best box-to-box midfielders in the league. Koulibaly is an upgrade on an already solid card. If Napoli advances, he’s going to be top-class.
On top of that, Lazio’s Joaquin Correa is available for free as an objective. His team hasn’t sewn up its spot in the next round, but they’re well on their way. Finally, Alex Sandro is in SBCs now. I think I’d still rather have Theo Hernandez’s inform; however, the cards are basically the same price. If you can get that price down with untradeables, it’s probably worth doing. All told, if you’re a Serie A player, it finally feels like you’re getting some love.
