FIFA 21: How to complete End of an Era Lars and Sven Bender SBC – Requirements and solutions

The end of the line for the Bender brothers.

Twins Lars and Sven Bender have been a fixture in German football for over a decade. But after injuries have piled up, the two brothers have made it clear that the 2020-21 season will be their last, and they will no longer play once their contracts expire at the end of the year. With the end of Leverkusen season drawing near, EA Sports and the FIFA 21 team have released two new End of an Era Squad Building Challenges: one for Lars and one for Sven. FIFA players can complete two SBCs, and pick up an 88 OVR card of each brother.
