The UEFA Champions League returned this week, and brought a host of quality quarter final affairs along with it!
Manchester City, Real Madrid, Chelsea and PSG all got off to winning starts in their quest for a semi-final berth.
But if you were hoping for those Road to the Final upgrades this week then we have some bad news for you.
Here is everything you need to know.
Latest News - Second Legs Inbound
We've entered a new week and thus, the second legs of the UCL quarter finals are upon us!
PSG and Chelsea will be hoping to back up their first leg victories with success on their home field this evening, before Manchester City and Real Madrid travel to Dortmund and Liverpool respectively to try and secure their place in the last four.
All of the RTTF upgrades will be decided by Wednesday evening, so be sure to check back for everything you need to know!
Unlike in the Round of 16, there will be no upgrades for those who won the opening leg of their quarter final ties.
Instead, those who win the tie will be rewarded with an upgrade in FIFA 21's Ultimate Team in the early hours of Saturday, April 17th.
As we have already allueded to, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Chelsea and PSG all won their first leg clashes this week.
As a result, the following players are in pole position for an upgrade when the quarter finals conclude:
- Eden Hazard (Real Madrid) - 92 OVR
- Raphael Varane (Real Madrid) - 90 OVR
- Isco (Real Madrid) - 89 OVR
- Mauro Icardi (PSG) - 89 OVR
- Joao Cancelo (Manchester City) - 88 OVR
- Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City) - 88 OVR
- Julian Draxler (PSG) - 87 OVR
- Mason Mount (Chelsea) - 87 OVR
As the saying goes, where there are winners, there must be losers.
Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool, FC Porto and Bayern Munich are those sides, though they do have 90 minutes to turn things around.
Owners of the following cards will ceratinly hope so:
- Mohammed Salah (Liverpool) - 94 OVR
- Gini Wijnaldum (Liverpool) - 89 OVR
- Julian Brandt (Borussia Dortmund) - 89 OVR
- David Alaba (Bayern Munich) - 89 OVR
- Felipe Anderson (FC Porto) - 88 OVR
- Alphonso Davies (Bayern Munich) - 88 OVR
- Manuel Akanji (Borussia Dortmund) - 97 OVR
Figuring out who to invest in can be difficult, so let's run you through the ties themselves, with each sides probability of winning.
Chelsea vs FC Porto
Chelsea have put themselves in pole position to reach the semi-finals with a 2-0 victory in the away leg of their clash with Portuguese side, FC Porto.
The Premier League side should progress but as far as investement go, there is nothing doing here.
Both Mason Mount and Felippe Anderson were available exclusively via SBC's and therefore, neither are available on the transfer market.
Manchester City vs Borussia Dortmund
UCL favourites Manchester City got off to winning ways in there quarter final clash with Dortmund, as Phil Foden grabbed a last minute winner to see of a stubborn BVB outfit by two goals to one.
Marco Reus' away goal ten minutes from time will give the Bundesliga side hopes of turning this tie around at the Signal Iduna Park, though City are the overwhelming favourites to advance.
A risk on Akanji or Brandt could pay dividens, but only if you get them whilst there prices are declining. We fancy City to progress though.
Liverpool vs Real Madrid
Real Madrid put on a show on Tuesday, as they saw off Liverpool by three goals to one thanks in large part to a Vinicus Jr brace.
Liverpool have the two of the highest-rated cards left in the promotion in the form of Mohammed Salah and Gini Wijnaldum, with the formers away goal giving Jurgen Klopps' men hope of a second leg comeback.
We give Liverpool a higher chance of progressing than Dortmund, though there poor form at Anfield will have to change quickly if they are to see of an in-form Real Madrid side.
Bayern Munich vs PSG
PSG pulled off the shock of the round on Wednesday, as they ended Bayern Munich's incredible unbeaten European run with a 3-2 victory in a thriller at the Allianz.
The Parisians will enter the second leg as the bookmakers favourite to progress, though Bayern will be full of belief that they can turn this one around.
As far as investments go, a risk on David Alaba or Alphonso Davies could have the highest chance of paying off.
