Showdown Keita Review - Is It Worth It?

This is a very good card, and one that could get even better if Liverpool come out victorious on Sunday.

On paper, Liverpool look to be the stronger side of the two heading into the game, but with COVID-19 cases and injuries aplenty in both camps, it is hard to say who will feature.

A draw looks to be the most likely result, which would see this card upgraded to an 88 OVR.

If you're going to complete either of the two SBC's, we'd opt for this one.
