FIFA 21: How to complete FUT Future Stars Academy Marc Cucurella Objectives challenge

The second Future Stars Academy card is here.

Two days after the FIFA 21 team released the first FUT Future Stars Academy Objectives challenge, a follow-up challenge featuring Getafe CF midfielder Marc Cucurella went live. FIFA players can get their hands on four different versions of Cucurella, with the final one being an 87 OVR version of the Spanish midfielder.

How to complete FUT Future Stars Academy Cucurella challenge

Much like the Reinier challenge, FIFA players will need to complete 12 separate objectives in order to receive the final version of Marc Cucurella. However, unlike the challenge for the Dortmund striker, this one is a Squad Battles-themed challenge. Six of the 12 objectives specify that players must complete those in Squad Battles on mininum Professional difficulty.

Here are the 12 objectives for this challenge:

  • A Future Star – Score 4 goals using Spanish players (rewards are 82 OVR LB Cucurella and 200 XP)

Players who complete all 12 objectives will receive the 87 OVR Cucurella card and 200 XP.

As far this challenge goes, it will be a grind, but considering that this a Squad Battles-themed one, it actually shouldn’t be horrible to get through. Just keep in mind that you might want to use a LaLiga-themed squad with Spanish forwards, as that type of team will not only help you complete the first objective, but will also link well with Cucurella.

Additionally, it’s worth noting that it might actually be worth just completing the A Future Star, A Promising Star, and Climbing the Ranks objectives if you’re not interested in grinding for the 87 OVR card. While the 86 OVR doesn’t have the same stats (-3 Pace and -3 Shooting) as the highest-rated version, it’ll still be very serviceable.

This challenge will expire on March 14.
