Although the FUT Showdown Event in FIFA 22 has already been long gone, we just got a new Showdown SBC. This time around, Gabriel Paulista (Valencia CF) and Sergio Canales (Real Betis) face off against each other.

In this article, we'll show you which of the two players is worth putting the effort in or whether you should rather go for special cards from other FUT events. In addition, we will show you the cheapest teams to complete the challenge...

FIFA 22 Showdown SBC Summary

You can get both players and strengthen your squad until April 23, 2022, by completing the two SBCs. Both challenges have roughly the same requirements and therefore a similar cost as well. Nevertheless, one of the two players clearly is more interesting... but which one is it? Well, just take a look at the following table...

We're talking about Sergio Canales, of course. For a central midfielder, he has above-average speed (90 pace) and can set up his teammates with dangerous passes (91) time and again. Gabriel Paulista's upgrade is not bad by any means, but more than half a year after the release of FIFA 22, he is clearly too weak to consider him one of the meta cards. If you only have coins for one of these players, you should rather go for Canales... even without the potential victory upgrade, he still is the better choice.

Is The FUT Showdown SBC In FIFA 22 Worth It?

Yes and no. In the best case scenario, Canales' already more than solid card gets a +2 upgrade and looks really tasty. Then the challenge is definitely worth it. We wouldn't waste any coins on Gabriel Paulista though, you'll find dozens of stronger alternatives on the transfer market...
