We really hope you didn’t miss Sunday’s Champions League final between FC Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain. It was an incredible game with lots of chances and a happy end for all fans of Bayern. The team from Munich crowns it’s unbelievable season with the treble and go down in history as the first Champions League winner that won all their games of a season. This incredible season will earn a lot of players a significant rating upgrade in FIFA21.
We’re taking a look at 3-star players and their potential rating in the newest FIFA game that will be available from October 9.
“Phonzie” without a doubt is the biggest surprise from last season. He went from sitting on the bench and playing for the second team to being arguably the best left back in the world. Especially his performance against Barca in Bayern’s incredible 8:2 win left a lot of fans speechless.
Davies started FIFA20 with a 72 rated left midfielder and didn’t get a winter upgrade – which is a joke if you look at his performances even before the winter break. Alphonso will definitely receive a huge upgrade and of course a position change in FIFA21. Our prediction for “Phonzie” is an 82 rated left back card which will be one of the most overpowered options for this position in the upcoming game.

Kimmich has been one of the most consistent and well-rounded players in the world for the last few seasons already. Now it seems like he’s finally getting the recognition he deserves. Last season he registered 4 goals and 9 assists to his name which is pretty good for a defensive midfielder or right back – his preferred positions.
But his game isn’t defined by his numbers. He’s one of those players that’s never getting tired. He’s up and down the pitch from the first to the last minute of the game. No wonder why pretty much every star coach is a huge fan of him. We’re talking the likes of José Mourinho, Pep Guardiola, Jupp Heynckes and many more.
In FIFA20, Kimmich has an 86 rated right back card. For FIFA21, we’re guessing he’ll receive an 89 rated CDM card, which will be one of the most well-rounded cards in the game and playable in multiple positions.
“Lewy” has been among the top 3 strikers for the past few seasons, but this he has taken it up a notch. He scored 55 goals in 47 games, more than world renowned clubs like Atlético Madrid or Sevilla. He broke multiple records including scoring in every Champions League he’s played in. At 32 years old, lots of people compare him to a fine wine – he gets better with age.
This has been the best season of his career and he shows no signs of slowing down. Let’s see what the Polish legend has in store for us next year. In FIFA 20, he got an 89 rated striker card, which a lot of people thought was too low for a player like him. Our prediction is that he’ll at least get an upgrade to a 91, if not a 92.
