FIFA 21 Showdown SBC: Sean Klaiber vs. Donyell Malen

New SBC duel to the derby between Ajax and PSV. (Source: EA Sports)
On January 10, Ajax Amsterdam will face rivals PSV Eindhoven in the Dutch Eredivisie. There is a lot of fire in the duel between the first and second in the table, which EA Sports is fueling with a brand new showdown SBC. Right-back Sean Klaiber (Ajax) and striker Donyell Malen (PSV) go head-to-head.

What is the FIFA 21 Showdown SBC?

The Showdowns feature two footballers whose teams play against each other in one of Europe’s top leagues. Both cards can be unlocked as part of a Squad Building Challenge – so you can just get both players if you wish.

The highlight is that the special cards increase depending on the result of the game. The card of the player from the winning team gets a boost of +2 points on the total value, and in case of a draw both cards get a counter on top.

FIFA 21 Showdown SBC: Klaiber vs. Malen

So if Ajax Amsterdam win, right-back Sean Klaiber’s card rises to 87 OVR. If PSV Eindhoven wins, striker Donyell Malen’s total will reach 86 OVR.

Around 70,000 coins are due for both players, but on paper Klaiber’s card is the more interesting option; after all, the stats already look excellent without an upgrade.

With Shadow Chemistry Style, the Dutchman achieves a total value of 92 at the right defender position. It also provides a perfect link to the recently released and highly sought-after Flashback card of Arjen Robben. Klaiber and Malen’s SBCs will end on January 10 just before the start of the match between Ajax Amsterdam and PSV Eindhoven, kickoff at the Johan Cruyff Arena is at 16:45.

Sean Klaiber SBC Solution

To secure the physically strong right defender, you’ll need to trade a team with the following:
  • Team with one player from the Netherlands (84 OVR, at least 60 chemistry)
The cheapest solution is to create a hybrid team from the German Bundesliga and the Portuguese NOS league. Since the chemistry requirement is low, you can use players in positions they shouldn’t be in. Memphis Depay from Olympique Lyon also fulfills the nation requirement.

Donyell MALEN SBC Solution

The map of Donyell Malen turns out a bit more favorable, which is due to the minimally different conditions:
  • Team with one player from the Eredivisie (84 OVR, at least 60 chemistry).
Here we combine different leagues with each other, a total of five Brazilians are used. As a player from the Eredivisie serves us goalkeeper André Onana from Ajax Amsterdam.

If you want to be on the safe side, just complete both SBCs. Otherwise, you’re much better off with Sean Klaiber’s showdown card. After all, the Ajax pro is already versatile due to his stats.

Depending on the chemistry style, the Dutchman cuts a fine figure at right-back (Shadow/Anchor), center-back (Sentinel) or in central defensive midfield (Backbone). For the price called, an absolute bargain and now imagine the possible upgrade.
