Although the FUT Showdown Event in FIFA 22 has already been long gone, we just got a new Showdown SBC. This time around, Oleksandr Zinchenko (Manchester City) and Nacho Fernández (Real Madrid) face off against each other. In the Champions League as well, both teams will meet one more time... which of course also has an effect on FIFA.

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 May 4, 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 could potentially become more interesting... but which one is it? Well, just take a look at the following table for now...

Of course, Manchester City have the advantage from the first leg of the Champions League semifinal. However, Real Madrid have already shown their comeback ability several times this season... so you can't really play it safe if you're only looking for the win upgrade.

Nevertheless, Oleksandr Zinchenko is probably the better choice. In FIFA 22, there are more meta central defenders than there are stars in the universe, so even with a +2 upgrade, Nacho Fernández will have a hard time making it onto many squads.
