FIFA 21 Team of the Week is back for a third week in Ultimate Team after a packed slate of game. Here, we’ll run through the entire TOTW 3 squad and lay out any leaks that had been revealed prior to the team’s release.
Even though many of the world’s top domestic leagues have been taking a break due to international games, that’s not stopping Team of the Week.
The weekly addition of new cards has been full steam ahead since the launch of FIFA 21, with superstars like Harry Kane, Erling Haaland, and Bruno Fernandes receiving a special card already for their real-life performances.
With Team of the Week 3 now upon us, some FIFA players might assume that it’s going to be a weaker set of cards, but, it could actually surprise you.
The third TOTW squad in FUT 21 features several high-rated, big-name players, including Sergio Ramos, Roberto Firmino, and a centerback version of Kyle Walker.
OTW owners will also be pleased to see that Arsenal’s big summer signing, Thomas Partey, and Real Madrid starlet Martin Odegaard, have both received upgrades to their Ones to Watch cards.
On October 14, 2020, EA SPORTS released their third batch of Team of the Week cards for FIFA 21. This promo started at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST, which is three hours later than last year’s content schedule, so don’t be hovering around on Twitter waiting for it to drop too early.
A few cards from the latest set had already been leaked online. Posts were suggesting Ones to Watch owners will receive their first upgrade, specifically those who have Arsenal’s Thomas Partey or Madrid’s Martin Odegaard in their ranks. According to a leaker called FUT Investments on Instagram, the following were selected for inclusion this week:
These names were broken up into multiple posts, but here’s one from earlier.
Just a day previous, the account correctly leaked information on a Flashback Witsel SBC coming – and it was added soon after. Last week, for the second set, the entire list was leaked ahead of schedule – meaning much of the game’s community knew what was coming before it was even confirmed.
If that happens again this time, we’ll be updating this section continually with updates. Don’t you fret.
Here’s our list of predictions. Now that the the official team has been released, you’ll be able to see how many we guessed correctly:
We’ve got Roberto Firmino, Sergio Ramos, and Sergej Milinković-Savić as the headline players in our predictions. Firmino has been in fine form Brazil during the international break, all things point towards a card for him.
Looking up the Premier League table, Firmino’s Merseyside rival Gylfi Sigurdsson also looked likely to grab one. The Everton midfielder bagged himself two goals and the Man of the Match honors during Iceland’s win over Romania.
Elsewhere, Mason Mount notched home England’s winner against Belgium and a fine performance earns him a nod, while Matthias Ginter got himself on the scoresheet in Germany’s 2-1 Nations League win over Ukraine.
