FIFA 21 FUTTIES: Manuel Akanji FUTTIES Favourite Objectives Tips

The second batch of FUTTIES cards are still available in packs, but that isn't all EA have in store for FUT fanatics.

Yet another Objectives card hit the FUT menus this evening, with the Bundesliga the league of choice this time around.

Dortmund centre half Manuel Akanji is up for grabs, with a 95-rated card that is sure to strike fear into the heart of your opponent.

Here is everything that you need to know.


This FUTTIES Akanji landed in FIFA 21 at 6pm BST on Wednesday, August 4th.

The Dortmund man will be available for one week, expiring on Wednesday, August 11th.


EA have tasked eager players with completing four Objectives in order to unlock the 95-rated version of Akanji.

All four are as follows:

  • Heading Hero: Score 4 Headers in Squad Battles on min. Professional difficulty (or Rivals)
  • Clever Crossing: Assist with Crosses in 3 separate Squad Battles matches on min. Professional difficulty (or Rivals)
  • Bundesliga Beast: Score using Bundesliga players in 7 separate Squad Battles Wins on min. World Class difficulty (or Rivals)
  • Defender of Dortmund: Assist in 9 separate Squad Battles matches on min. Professional difficulty (or Rivals) using Defenders

Objectives Tips

For those with a Bundesliga setup, this shouldn't take you long at all.

All four of the objectives set by EA feature challenges that are common occurances within Division Rivals or Squad Battles matches, so you shouldn't have to ammend your style of play too much in order to complete them.

In addition to this, the Heading Hero and Clever Crossing Obejctives tie in perfectly to one another, which makes the challenges easier still.

The Defender of Dortmund Objective is likely to be the hardest to complete, but given the on-the-ball quality of some of the higher-rated fullbacks in the game currently, you should be able to switch positions in-game to account for the assists.

We'd recommend taking the Squad Battles route rather than the Division Rivals route as you will come up against much easier opposition in the offline mode.

Worth the Grind?

If you've got a Bundesliga side, then there is no question that you should be looking to complete this card.

Akanji has proven to be one of the best defenders in the game this year thanks to his impressive pace and physicality stats, and this is the best of the lot so far.
