The UEFA Champions League Team of the Group Stage squad is set to be released this Friday in FUT 21, celebrating the best performers in the UCL so far.
Last year we saw a release for TOTGS around this time, coming on the first Friday in December, so we’re expecting these cards to arrive very soon in FUT!
Nevertheless, let’s dive into our prediction for the UCL Team of the Group Stage squad!
Lionel Messi - 95 CF
Barcelona top Group H currently and Messi has been at the centre of most things good about Barca, with 3 goals, 2 assists and 2 MOTM awards in 3 appearances, as well as the highest average match rating in the competition.
Kevin De Bruyne - 92 CAM
After missing out on an IF card this week, it’s very likely that KDB is being pushed into the TOTGS squad, after guaranteeing a knockout stage spot with Man City, helping his side with 4 assists in 2 games.
Neymar - 92 LW
Neymar's 3 goals in the group stage for PSG, and sublime performance against Manchester United in PSG's 3-1 win may be enough for EA to sneak him into the TOTGS squad.
Bruno Fernandes - 90 CAM
Another potential special card for Bruno Fernandes, with 3 goals and 1 assist in United’s first 4 games surely enough to earn him a special UCL TOTGS item.
Joshua Kimmich - 90 CDM
The 25-year-old is in the form of his life right now and has been at the heart of Bayern’s unstoppable European machine so far, grabbing a goal and 3 assists in 3 UCL apps.
Ciro Immobile - 88 ST
While Immobile may have only played in 2 of Lazio’s 4 UCL games, 3 goals and 1 assist and MOTMs in both should secure him a spot in the team.
Erling Haland - 88 ST
Without doubt, the Norwegian makes his way into the team, leading the goalscoring charts in the UCL so far with 6 goals for Dortmund.
Timo Werner - 87 LW
A potential upgrade here for Timo Werner’s OTW card, with his TOTGS item being deployed out on the left-hand side, with the German earning 3 goals and 1 assist in Chelsea’s successful group stage campaign.
Marcus Rashford - 87 ST
While Rashford may already have a Road to the Final item, this doesn’t mean he’s exempt from a TOTGS card, and with 5 goals is a prime candidate.
Juan Cuadrado - 86 RB
4 assists for the Colombian should earn him his 2nd promo card of the year with a spot in the UCL TOTGS squad.
Kingsley Coman - 86 LM
Another player that missed out on an IF this week, Coman is surely being kept back for the promo squad on Friday, which makes sense given that he’s earned 3 goals and 2 assists in 4 games.
Dusan Tadic - 85 CF
Ajax may be in a battle for the knockout stage with Atalanta, however, we can’t ignore Tadic’s group stage efforts, having a say in all but 2 of Ajax’s goals so far.
Olivier Giroud - 84 ST
The French forward put in an awesome display against Sevilla, scoring 4 goals, taking his tally in the competition up to 5 with only 1 start and 2 substitute appearances.
Alvaro Morata - 84 ST
Juve has already secured their knockout stage spot, and a driving force behind their success has been the Spaniard, scoring 5 goals in 3 starts for the Italian giants.
Ferran Torres - 84 ST
A first potential upgrade coming to the Manchester City youngster, who should receive a boost to his OTW card in the form of an 84 rated TOTGS card.
Diogo Jota - 83 CF
Jota’s started his Liverpool career in sparkling form, scoring a healthy sum in the league, as well as 4 goals in the UCL. We expect him to get in with an 83 rated CF item.
Alassane Plea - 83 ST
Gladbach has shocked Group B, topping the group as we head into matchday 6, and a big factor to their success have been Plea’s goals and assists, scoring 5 and assisting 3.
Angelino - 83 LB
All to play for in Group H, Angelino has been a key player for Leipzig with 4 goal contributions in 5 games, earning 2 goals and 2 assists from his LB role.
Edouard Mendy - 82 GK
Expect a GK to get into the TOTGS selection. We think Chelsea’s new man in between the sticks Edouard Mendy could be the selection.
Sergio Oliveira - 82 CM
Porto has qualified for the knockout stages, and midfielder Sergio Oliveira has been a key man, scoring 3 times in 5 appearances.
