FIFA 21 Marco Reus Birthday SBC: Cheapest solutions, rewards, stats

Another Birthday card and this one looks back to FIFA 14 and Marco Reus. With boosted stats, 5* Skill Moves, and that Bundesliga chemistry, this will be the most popular one yet.

At 31 years old, it can often feel like Marco Reus never quite fulfilled his potential and in a pure trophy haul he perhaps comes up short, arriving the season after Dortmund's back-to-back Bundesliga wins.

His first season would also see him, and Dortmund, fall short in their quest for the Champions League, losing to Bayern Munich in an all-Germany final.

But that would just be to look at major silverware because by every other metric Marco Reus has always been a world-class player and has rightly been lauded as one. Three times Bundesliga Player of the Season, five times Team of the Season.

He's also been a favourite of many in FIFA games, and as part of FIFA 21's Birthday promo EA Sports has been looking back to legends of Ultimate Team's of the past and for FIFA 14, you know who it is.

Available through a limited-time SBC Marco Reus' Birthday card features boosted stats and a permanent 5* Skill Move upgrade. Here is how you can get him into your team for as cheap as possible.

A good player just got better, at 91 OVR, six higher than his base, Reus' Birthday card is an absolute beast with huge increases to his Physicality (+20) and Pace (+11) that make him a truly meta pick.

He also moves from CAM to LW and he will be an electrifying prospect on that position, with his pace underling phenomenal technical stats.

At well over half a million coins he is hardly the cheapest but if you run a Bundesliga team then there are few better in his position.

Players have until 15 days, or until the 15th of April to complete the SBCs. So if you are undecided you have some time, but don't wait around.
