FIFA 22 Ligue 1 POTM: Wissam Ben Yedder SBC Cheapest Solutions & Review

The Ligue 1 POTM for January has finally arrived, and it's one that you are going to want to take a look at!

FIFA favourite Wissam Ben Yedder is the man to collect the award, after helping Monaco climb up the table in the month of January. It is his third special card of the FIFA year so far, and his first Player of the Month award of the season.

Here is everything that you need to know about his limited-time SBC, including all of his in-game statistics and the cheapest way in which you can get him playing for your club.

POTM Ben Yedder Stats

Ben Yedder has been upgraded to an 88 OVR for his appearance as the Ligue 1 POTM, four ratings higher than his 84-rated base card.

Dribbling (91 OVR) is the standout pick for Ben Yedder as far as his base statistics are concerned, although 89-rated shooting and 88-rated pace follow closely behind.

Ben Yedder has some effective in-game trait too, none more so than the Outside Foot Shot, which will reap the rewards when through on goal. The Monaco favourite also has a 5* weak foot and 4* skills.

POTM Ben Yedder Review - Is It Worth It?

This is a tricky decision to make.

On the one hand, this is a very good card, one which is not too expensive and, if you've ever used Ben Yedder in FIFA before, you will know how good he is in-game, regardless of rating.

But on the other, you've got a Future Stars Amine Gouiri in the Objectives market that is not too dissimilar to this card and can be picked up without spending a penny.

If you've got a Ligue 1 team and you're looking to a two-man combination to play up top, then Ben Yedder and Gouiri look to be the perfect combination. Equally, if you're looking for a perfect link to build into a hybrid, then the two go hand in hand.

But if you're in need of just one man to lead the line in your Ligue 1 side, then we would recommend leaving this card, and instead working towards unlocking Gouiri.
