Best Investment Starter Squad for FIFA 20
It is no secret that OTW golds are some of my favorite early investments. In FIFA 19, these cards rose an average of 88% over the 10 days they were out of packs.
Here is a FIFA 20 Investment Starter Squad that focuses on OTW gold cards (FUTBIN squad link) and specific details as to why they are such good looks.
LW – Ivan Perisic: After 4 seasons at Inter, Perisic now moves on to Germany to play for Bayern. He has a great shot at making the OTW squad on September 27th, and his 4* skills and 5* WF make him a great option in the attack.
ST – Sebastien Haller: Not a glamorous choice at striker, but he is one of the eight confirmed OTW players for FIFA 20. He will rise nicely while out of packs.
RW – Nicolas Pepe: Another confirmed OTW selection, so Pepe is a safe bet for early investment purposes. A winger with 91 pace isn’t a bad option to have on your side, either.
CM – Corentin Tolisso: The French midfielder won’t be getting a OTW card, but he does help for chemistry purposes in the squad (strong link to Perisic). A solid card with 70+ stats in all categories.
CM – Tanguy Ndombele: Not a confirmed OTW card, but has a good chance after transferring to a popular club (Spurs) in the Premier League. Looks to be a potential OP card early on, as well.
CM – Rodri: Standing at 6’3″ (191 cm), the Manchester City transfer will be a great look early on for investment purposes. He will be the most expensive player in the squad, and while expensive players tend to offer a lower ROI, I am still confident that Rodri will rise nicely from September 27th-October 7th.
LB – Nico Schulz: The German fullback has a good chance of being chosen for the OTW squad. If he isn’t, you still get to run up and down the left sideline with a card that has 90 pace.
CB – Lucas Hernandez: EA have chosen 2 players from the same club in the past for OTW (Keita/Alisson in ’19), and it’s my extinct that they will pair up Hernandez with Perisic in FIFA 20 as well. With 80+ pace, defending, and physical, he will be a beast to deal with for opponents.
CB – Kurt Zouma: Nothing special about this card; he is a cheap French centerback from the BPL that we need for chemistry purposes.
RB – Wan-Bissaka: Confirmed OTW. Fullback position. Pacey. Manchester United. English. All of these things make Wan-Bissaka one of the best looks early on in the game.
GK: Stephane Ruffier: The French GK was chosen for chemistry purposes to link up with Hernandez and Zouma, but he could be a good investment look early given the fact he will likely be one of the cheapest 84 rated players.
