With Team of the Week 4 being released into FIFA 20 Ultimate Team, we can begin to look at specific cards to invest in for potential profit; when they go out of packs next week. The simple idea when investing in these cards, is that they get far rarer when their week of being in packs ends, due to no further supply, meaning that cards in demand from the TOTW rise well; which makes for great investment opportunities.
This week's set of informs have been a real step up from the previous week. You can view the full TOTW 4 in full here.
Some General TOTW Investing Advice
When investing, there are some general points to remember and consider to ensure that you not only maximise profits and efficiency, but also reduce the chances of incurring any losses on cards you buy.
- The buy prices discussed in this guide and article are taken from the market as of 2-4pm on Thursday 10th October.
- The market is ever changing, meaning cards could dramatically exceed or fall below the buy prices mentioned.
- To make the best investments at the best prices, remember to monitor the market as much as you can, taking note of price fluctuations daily.
- The big rises with these cards will only start to come once they get slightly rarer once out of packs, or if they become demanded for an SBC, so you may have to be patient.
- Always sell when happy with the profit on your investments, taking into account 5% tax.
My Top Picks for Team of the Week 4 Investing
Out of the 23 man squad, there are 7 key players I’d be looking at in Team of the Week 4 to look at getting as an investment, these being Dybala, Immobile, Gomez, Plea, Bergwijn, Semedo and Hernandez.
Paulo Dybala - 89 OVR
PS4 Buy Price: 340,000
Xbox Buy Price: 330,000
PC Buy Price: 350,000
Paulo Dybala is the priciest card in this TOTW, but I love the look of this card as a long term investment. Linking to CR7, this card will always be in the question for top tier teams, and with other good links to Serie A and top Argentina forwards, expect Dybala to be in demand for the coming year.
Ciro Immobile - 87 OVR
PS4 Buy Price: 85,000
Xbox Buy Price: 80,000
PC Buy Price: 95,000
Despite not being the quickest option when it comes to strikers, Immobile possesses some top tier shooting stats that make him a prolific option up top. Being Italian in Serie A obviously helps when it comes to linking players, and with a strong link to Milinkovic-Savic in the midfield, I can easily see Ciro getting into a few teams as the year goes on.
Alejandro Gomez - 86 OVR
PS4 Buy Price: 140,000
Xbox Buy Price: 135,000
PC Buy Price: 140,000
The third Serie A attacking option that I like from this TOTW, Gomez has the key stats in agility and balance that make him a very meta card for FIFA 20. Once again, similar to Dybala, good links to other Argentina players, as well as Serie A links, make him an appealing option going forward. I’d be keeping an eye on him.
Alassane Plea - 84 OVR
PS4 Buy Price: 20,000
Xbox Buy Price: 20,000
PC Buy Price: 25,000
While Plea may not have the fastest card in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team, he has some very good technical stats that make him an enticing option for Bundesliga squads. Being French as well makes him very easy to add into hybrid squads, and having a hyper link to fellow Gladbach Frenchman Marcus Thuram means some interesting squad building possibilities.
Steven Bergwijn - 84 OVR
PS4 Buy Price: 45,000
Xbox Buy Price: 40,000
PC Buy Price: 40,000
The Eredivisie is going crazy at the moment, with some top tier cards coming out, such as Ones To Watch Promes, IF Malen, and IF Tagliafico, all cards that link to this new 84 Bergwijn card. Great links, along with 4 Star Skills, great pace and physicality make this card a very strong investment for me.
Nelson Semedo - 84 OVR
PS4 Buy Price: 100,000
Xbox Buy Price: 100,000
PC Buy Price: 120,000
Nelson Semedo is an interesting card this week, mainly due to his new LB position change, which may somewhat deter investors, due to cheaper alternatives such as Ferland Mendy and Jordi Alba being available. However, with strong links to popular meta cards, such as Frenkie De Jong and Clement Lenglet, Semedo should do very nicely once out of packs.
Theo Hernandez - 81 OVR
PS4 Buy Price: 60,000
Xbox Buy Price: 57,500
PC Buy Price: 65,000
Even though he’s only 81 rated, Theo Hernandez is one of the more costly options in TOTW4. Possessing great pace, with strong technical stats for a full back, alongside being French, Theo Hernandez does look to be a quality option for Serie A teams. Do be careful though, as Mendy, Roussillon and Alex Sandro all offer valid alternatives, be it from being French or playing in the Serie A.
Other Cards to Club Stock from TOTW 4
These cards don’t look to be the best possible investments this week in my opinion, however they might be a good idea to pick up over the weekend for cheap, and just store in the club until a later date. Over time, they’ll rise from becoming rarer, and with the right SBC, could rise up heavily in value!
