95 OVR

Karim Benzema grabbed two goals and an assist as Real saw off Celta Vigo on Sunday, enough to earn himself the starring role in TOTW 26.

Benzema's TOTW appearance means that the Real Madrid man has also been handed an upgrade to his dynamic Headliners item.

A fourth upgrade takes Benzema to a cool 95 OVR, which spells great news for those who invested in the 33-year-old when the promotion debuted in January.

If you're looking to add the Real man to your squad, we'd wait for the hype to die down.

Review

With his latest upgrade, Benzema has become one of the very best strikers in FIFA 21.

Benzema's finishing has improved yet again, with the Frenchman moving ever closer to that elusive 99 OVR in that department.

Meanwhile his pace has improved yet again, though his agility and balance are still rather underwhelming.

If you're looking for a target man to lead your line, then there are few better than Benzema, though if you're looking for a striker to get in behind and cause the opposition problems with the ball at his feet, we'd steer clear.
