TOTW 8 Squad

Team of the Week 8 Prediction

TOTW 08 features a decent selection of stars who performed well during the International break, as well as 3 potential Ones To Watch upgrades to look out for!

Starting 11

Yann Sommer - 87 GK 

Despite not keeping a clean sheet against Spain, Sommer put in an awesome display, saving 2 penalties in Switzerland’s 1-1 draw with the European powerhouses, enough to guarantee his TOTW 08 inclusion.

Denzel Dumfries - 82 RB

The first of 2 Dutch players to make it into our prediction, Dumfries made 2 assists in the Netherlands’ 3-1 win over Bosnia on Sunday, and with a relatively small pool of defenders to choose from, could make it in.

Harry Maguire - 84 CB

Maguire looks to be a shoe-in for TOTW 08, getting 1 goal and keeping a clean sheet in England’s international friendly against the Irish.

Mario Rui - 82 LB 

Rui looks like he may make it into TOTW after assisting twice in Portugal’s 7-0 thrashing of Andorra in an international friendly last Wednesday.

N’Golo Kante - 89 CDM

Kante put in a MOTM performance as he scored the winner in France’s 1-0 UEFA Nations League win over Portugal. Seeing as this was a marquee matchups tie, we’d expect an IF for his impressive contribution!

Gini Wijnaldum - 86 CM

Wijnaldum bagged 2 goals in the Dutch teams’ 3-1 win over Bosnia in the UEFA Nations League and will be enough to get his first IF card of FUT 21.

Leon Goretzka - 86 CM

Yes, another CM, and the first of two Germans that will make our prediction from their 3-1 UEFA Nations League win over Ukraine. Goretzka grabbed 2 assists and an impressive match rating.

Achraf Hakimi - 85 RM

While Ziyech may have grabbed 2 goals in Morocco’s 4-1 Africa Cup of Nations Qualifier, his inclusion in TOTW 06 means that Hakimi will take the IF after 1 goal and 1 assist in a 4-1 win.

Riyad Mahrez - 86 CAM

A tasty little position change here, with Mahrez playing as a CAM in a 3-1 Africa Cup of Nations Qualifier win over Zimbabwe in which he scored 1 and assisted another.

Sadio Mane - 91 LW

While Mane only grabbed 1 goal and 1 assist in Senegal’s 2-0 win over Guinea-Bissau, with somewhat limited higher tier attacking options, he may just make it into TOTW 08.

Timo Werner - 87 ST

Timo will be the headliner OTW card in TOTW 08, after scoring twice in Germany’s 3-1 win over Ukraine in the UEFA Nations League.

How To Get In-Forms And Make Money Fast

The only way to get in-form cards is by either obtaining one in a pack or buying one off of the market place.

To increase your chances of getting an in-form, you can open more packs. The more expensive the pack is the higher probability of packing one (but the chances of getting one is not guaranteed.

SBC packs are usually far more lucrative than the regular packs, so if you can complete some of the SBCs, you may get lucky.

Half-way through the year, EA usually releases a TOTW SBC that will grant your a random in-form item from all of the previous weeks of FIFA.
