Axel Witsel FIFA 21 Flashback SBC went live Oct. 13 as the first official Flashback card of the new Ultimate Team cycle.
Flashback cards, as first introduced in FIFA 19, are special cards celebrating a previous time in a player’s career. These items receive overall rating and stats boosts to reflect that time period. Axel Witsel, the Belgian midfielder for Borussia Dortmund, had one of the most popular Flashback cards in FIFA 20.
Witsel is a strange choice considering he was released relatively soon to his FIFA 20 card. Of course, that game is history now, but perhaps a better player was available.

This is a puzzling SBC from EA Sports. It’s rather expensive for an 86 rated defensive midfielder. The new card design is flashy, but spending that amount of equity on an untradeable card at this point of the game doesn’t make sense. Especially for a player that more or less requires Bundesliga players to get full chemistry. He does link to players like Alphonso Davies and Leroy Sane, but it’s still expensive.
