The knockout rounds of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League are in full swing. For FIFA 21 players, this means that there are more upgrades in store for the dynamic RTTF cards. We’ll tell you which cards are going up in rating.

FUT 21 RTTF: What is it?

The RTTF (Road to the Final) cards are dynamic special objects whose values increase when the respective player’s team makes it to the next round of the Champions or Europa League. The Champions League is currently in its eighth-final stage: Here, an upgrade beckons if the team wins the first leg and another if it advances to the quarterfinals. The Europa League is different, however, because the intermediate round was played this week – so we are one round further away from the final. Here, the only upgrade that beckons is if the team advances to the round of 16.

Whether the respective player is used in the games is unimportant for the upgrades. Only the team’s results count here.

Champions League Round of 16: The RTTF upgrades

In the round of 16 of the Champions League many dynamic RTTF maps are in use. Meanwhile the first legs have been played and the first RTTF upgrades have found their way into FIFA 21. Some of the values will be adjusted on February 26 at 19:00, coinciding with the new What If event. The return matches will take place from 09.03. – 10.03. and 16.03. – 17.03. respectively, then the chance for another upgrade beckons.

There are still some upgrades to come in the Europa League. (Source: EA Sports)
It is currently unclear whether Quincy Promes (Ajax Amsterdam) will receive an upgrade. On February 24, the Dutchman announced his move to Spartak Moscow, which means he will no longer be competing for a team that plays in the Europa League. According to EA Sports, this means that no further upgrades are possible.
