The Premier League has three sides in the Champions League quarter finals after Chelsea secured a 3-0 aggregate win over Atletico Madrid.


Thomas Tuchel's men will be in the pot for the quarter final draw on Friday after comfortably overcoming the La Liga leaders.

It spells good news for those who completed the Antonio Rudiger SBC too, with the German set for an upgraded card in the coming days.

Showdown Rudiger Upgrade

Chelsea came into the tie with a 1-0 lead from the first leg in Madrid, and again made light work of the high flying La Liga side as they secured a comfortable 2-0 victory.

Antonio Rudiger played the full 90 and kept a clean sheet for the Londoners, and as a result, will see his Showdown card upgraded this week.

Here is what we know about the upgrades.

88 OVR

The Antonio Ruidger SBC cost roughly 250k to complete, a price which many baulked at for an 86-rated CB.

That being said, his soon to be 88-rated card may look a little something like this.

80-rated pace, 89 defending and 88 physicality would make the German one of the best centre backs the Premier League has to offer.


With 79-rated passing and 78 dribbling, Rudiger wouldn't be half bad at playing out from the back either.

250k doesn't look so bad now, does it?

Release Date

We expect this Rudiger card to be upgraded on Saturday, March 20.

This would be in tandem with the European RTTF cards, with those who progressed in their European ties set for upgrades this weekend too.

Upgradeless Lemar

Where there are winners, there must be losers.

And in this case, it's Atletico Madrid winger Thomas Lemar.

The Frenchman was a second half substitue during tonight's tie, but he couldn't produce the heroics required to keep Simeone's sides hopes alive.

As a result, he will remain an 86 OVR.
