Group Reward: One 94-rated FUT Birthday Youcef Atal

Objectives Tips

Whilst this may be a bit of a slog in terms of the number of Obejctives you have to complete, there isn't a great deal of difficulty in the challenges set.

You will of course have to find a way of building a number of Ligue 1 players into your squad in order to complete the earlier objectives, though there is no league restriction once you pass the Birthday Bash objective.

As always, we'll recommed taking the Squad Battles route as opposed to the Division Rivals route in order to complete the set in as little time as possible. Although with a month to work your way through, there isn't too much of a time restriction.

Worth the Grind?

There are three versions of Atal up for grabs, but is it worth completing all 11 objectives in order to unlock his top-rated card?

The short answer is yes. Here is why.

The 94-rated version of Atal is the only of the three cards to feature in the CM position, which, given his set of stats, is the ideal position for the Ligue 1 favourite.

Speaking of stats, the max-rated version of Atal has no fewer than 2690 total in-game stats, including 90+ ratings in all six of his base stats. Not to mention his 5* skills and 5* weak foot.

The other bonus is that you will be able to keep hold of the 87-rated FUT Birthday and 91-rated FUTTIES cards, which you can then use as fodder for SBC's further down the line.
