On May 7, EA Sports added a new set of Showdown SBCs to FIFA 21. This time, the matchup is between Real Madrid’s Rodrygo and Sevilla’s Luuk de Jong. Depending on how the real-life game goes on May 9, one or both players will get an upgrade. So, if one team pulls out a win, the respective player will get a +2 boost, but if the game ends in a tie, both players get a +1 to their OVR. It’s one of the more exciting SBC sets EA does. Below, you’ll find what you need to do to unlock both cards.

To fully complete both SBCs, players need to complete four separate lineups of 11 players each. Two of these are for the 89 OVR Rodrygo, and two are for the 90 OVR Luuk de Jong.

Here are the requirements for the Rodrygo SBC:

Currently, Luuk de Jong’s card is coming in at around 130,000 coins, while Rodrygo is a bit more expensive at 175,000 coins.
