How to Unlock POTM Messi FIFA 21 SBC Card in Ultimate Team

A 96-rated Player of the Month Lionel Messi card has just been added to the Squad Building Challenge.

Of course, FC Barcelona is not as powerful as its incredible days with Pep Guardiola or Luis Enrique nowadays, but some players still continue showing off great performance even if the whole team couldn’t achieve a successful result. Lionel Messi is surely one or probably the best player among this group in Barcelona over that last month. After his nice performance against Sevilla in Cop Del Ray, EA added a new 96-rated POTM Messi FIFA 21 card, which can be either purchased or unlocked through the squad building challenge.

How to Complete POTM Messi FIFA 21 Squad Building Challenge:

In order to get Lionel Messi’s Player of the Month card, you need to build six squads with the requirements below:


  • At least one Argentinian player
  • At least one TOTW card
  • Minimum squad rating of 84
  • Minimum team chemistry of 70

La Liga:

  • At least one La Liga player
  • At least one TOTW card
  • Minimum squad rating of 85
  • Minimum team chemistry of 55

Tactical Emulation:

  • At least one Barcelona player
  • Minimum squad rating of 85
  • Minimum team chemistry of 60

Top Form:

  • At least one TOTW card
  • Minimum squad rating of 86
  • Minimum team chemistry of 45


  • Minimum squad rating of 88
  • Minimum team chemistry of 40


  • Minimum squad rating of 89
  • Minimum team chemistry of 30

While purchasing Messi’s Player of the Month card will cost you something between 1,805,000 to 2,400,000 FUT Coins, grabbing it through the Squad Building Challenge will require you to have at least 1.6 million FUT Coins as estimated by FUTbin.

This new 96-rated Lionel Messi card seems to be better than his Team of the Year card with improved shooting, passing, defending, and physical ratings. It also has a cheaper price than his golden card in FIFA 21. Keep in mind that the card will only be around for a limited time.

FIFA 21 is now available on PS4PS5Xbox OneXbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC.
