FIFA 20 Ultimate Team bargains: 10 brilliant FUT buys for under 2,500 coins
Everyone loves a good deal. You. Me. Harry Redknapp. It stands to reason that in FIFA 20, you’ll be eyeing up some of the cheap and cheerful options to start your Ultimate Team stint this year.
Whether you want to make use of the early coin boosts, or just fancy making some savings to put towards packs instead, here are some of the best FIFA 20 Ultimate Team bargains that you can nab for under 2,500 coins.
FIFA 20 for the best price
Note: The prices below are correct as of writing and may be subject to change.
Andre Onana (GK)
Need to know: He may not play in a league that frequently gets used in Ultimate Team, but that doesn’t mean you should pass up the chance to have last year’s Champions League semi-finalist between the sticks. Onana’s 86 Kicking (of all things) is the standout, with long punts downfield now a very useful tactic in FIFA 20.
Sergi Roberto (RB)
Need to know: Despite getting a downgrade this year, one of La Liga’s best full-backs is still cheap. His above-average defensive stats may not inspire confidence, but his passing – including 84 Short Passing and 83 Crossing – means he’s always going to help in the final third.
Harry Maguire (CB)
Need to know: The world’s most expensive defender, surprisingly, doesn’t cost a pretty penny in Ultimate Team. If you shop around, you can get him for under 2,000 coins. 90 Strength and 87 Heading make him huge in the air; meanwhile, both his Short and Long Passing stats are above 75, meaning he can comfortably ping passes all over the pitch.
Vincent Kompany (CB)
Need to know: No, he won’t take over in the dugout – don’t worry. The current Anderlecht player-manager is still a formidable presence at the heart of the backline on this year’s FIFA. Combine with compatriots Youri Tielemans and Jan Vertonghen to (just about) squeeze him into a 100 chemistry Premier League squad for a real throwback.
Erik Lamela (RM)
Need to know: Those looking to build a Premier League team early on in Ultimate Team this year will notice that there’s a real dearth of quality RMs. Lamela is a nice stop-gap: 84 Dribbling, 83 Ball Control, 82 Long Shots and an 80 Free Kick rating means he’s a multi-faceted threat. Throw in a High Attacking Work Rate and he’ll give left-backs something to think about every time.
Need to know: Rafa is low-key but one of the best wingers in-game – and a must for Portuguese hybrid teams. The 94 Sprint Speed is eye-catching enough, but most of his dribbling stats hit the mid-80s and he comes with four-star skills to boot. You won’t want to look anywhere else for your wing wizardry.
Gylfi Sigurdsson (CAM)
Need to know: A potent attacking threat who won’t break the bank, Sigurdsson is blessed with outstanding shooting, passing, and dribbling – making him a must for most early Premier League teams. You’ll be able to take advantage of the new set-piece system too, with his 86 Free Kick Taking stat.
Pablo Sarabia (CAM)
Need to know: He may not stand out among PSG’s galaxy of stars, but the silky Spaniard will add a cutting edge to any Ligue 1 hybrid squad in Ultimate Team. Every major attacking attribute, from Dribbling (86) to Vision (84), makes him a worthwhile buy even months down the line. Slap on an Architect Chemistry Style card and he becomes one of the best passers in the game, too. 99 crossing, anyone?
Andrej Kramaric (ST)
Need to know: One of the best strikers in the game for 2,000 coins? Go on then. Kramaric’s shooting attributes are remarkable: 86 Finishing, 85 Long Shots, 85 Volleys. Plus, his 80+ rating for Agility, Balance, Dribbling, Ball Control and Reactions makes him a real handful in a game that, this year, favours the onrushing attacker more than ever before. Throw in a four-star weak foot and he can just about score from anywhere. Woof.
Mario Balotelli (ST)
Need to know: Can you really turn down having the firework-loving forward in your team? Now he’s moved back to Italy, Balo stands out as a solid choice for Serie A aficionados saving coins for some of the bigger names.
