The two SBC's went live on Saturday, March 14 and will expire at 6pm TOMORROW (Tuesday, March 17) ahead of an 8pm kick-off.

Ratings & Upgrades

Both of the European stars have seen their rating upgraded to a cool 86 OVR.

The winner of tomorrow's tie will see their rating upgraded by +2 OVR, whilst a draw on the night will see both rewarded with an 87-rated card.


Don't forget that this Showdown is based solely on the 90-minute match, not the result of the tie, which Chelsea lead by a goal to nil.


The estimated costs for both of the SBCs are very similar.

Those on PlayStation can complete either Rudiger or Lemar for around 245k, Xbox users for 240k and PC gamers can do so for 280k.

You can opt to complete both should you wish and, if you are predicting a draw, then it might not be such a bad idea to do so.

This is a really tough one to call.


Chelsea lead 1-0 from the opening tie in Madrid, but Atletico are no mugs, especially not in Europe.

Diego Simeone's men know that they have to go and win the match at Stamford Bridge, which will suit a counter attacking Chelsea side to a tee, though Atletico do have the defensive capablites to shut Thomas Tuchel's men out.

Atletico's form has dipped drastically of late though, and with Chelsea conceding just once in their last seven in all competitions, it's unlikely well see many goals tomorrow.

A Chelsea win or a draw is the most likely outcome for us. Which bodes well for those who have completed or are looking at completing Antonio Rudiger.

Who to Complete

Though we fancy Rudiger for an upgrade, there are no guarentees that he will get one, and without, he's simply not worth the asking price.


Thomas Lemar is much better value for money, but less likely for an upgrade.

There's really no great option here as far as we're concerned.
