FIFA 21 Team of the Week 25 will be dropping into Ultimate Team this week, and it could be a tasty crop of players. Let’s get into the predictions.
Though many FIFA Ultimate Team players were expecting Carniball to drop on March 12, that wasn’t the case. EA SPORTS didn’t give us a big promo but brought back the Party Bag SBC.
As a result, many players might have a good few packs saved up for Team of the Week, and if the action from this round of games is anything to go by, we could have an impressive TOTW to work with.
Cristiano Ronaldo looks to be a certain pick after his quickfire hat-trick for Juventus, while Kevin De Bruyne helped get Manchester City back on track. So, let’s dive further into our predictions.
As already mentioned, Ronaldo and De Bruyne are our standout picks this week, but there are still some nice players beyond them, especially Thomas Muller, Joao Cancelo, and Luis Alberto.
Aside from those, Dwight McNeil deserves an upgrade after his standout performance for Burnley against Everton. Wout Weghorst continued his fine goalscoring form too and should earn his second in-from of the season.
Further afield, Diogo Goncalves assisted both of Benfica’s goals against Boavista, while Kelechi Iheanacho bagged his first-ever Premier League hat-trick for Leicester City.
In terms of a Silver Stars prediction, we can’t look any further than Ridle Baku.
The 22-year-old filled in at left-back for Wolfsburg over the weekend and chipped in with a goal and assist in a 5-0 win over Schalke. He’s well worth a small upgrade on his 72-overall card.

Of course, these are only our predictions and they aren’t official in any way. The final decision, as ever, lies with EA.
We’ll find out if our predictions are spot on or miles off the mark on Wednesday, March 17 at 6 PM GMT.
