FIFA 22 Ultimate Team Ligue 1 Player of the Month: October winner, SBC requirements & dates

Ligue 1 Player of the Month

The October Player of the Month for Ligue 1 has arrived in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, and it’s Lyon’s Lucas Paqueta who has emerged victorious. Here are his FUT SBC requirements and a look ahead to the November nominees.

For all of its packs and wacky celebrations, FIFA 22 Ultimate Team is still heavily influenced by real on-the-pitch action.

Nowhere is this more obvious than in the constant rollout of performance-based special cards, such as Road to the Knockouts and the Team of the Week.

The Ligue 1 Player of the Month for October is Lucas Paqueta, after plenty of stunning displays for Lyon over the course of the month.

Deployed as a striker for much of the month, rather than his usual midfield role, the Brazilain has been pivotal in keeping Lyon in touch with the European spots.

To celebrate Paqueta’s performances in October, he has received an 86-rated striker card in Ultimate Team.

For a relatively modest rating, the card’s numbers are extremely well-rounded, although he may be better used as a midfielder thanks to his relatively low shooting stats.

EA is asking fans to complete three SBCs to earn POTM Paqueta, currently clocking in at around 160,000 coins to do from scratch.

Ligue 1 Player of the Month SBC dates

POTM Paqueta stats

The SBC for Player of the Month Paqueta is available to complete for an entire month, meaning it will end on Saturday, December 18, 2021.

This gives players plenty of time to slowly work towards completing the challenges if they don’t have the players or coins right away.

Once the SBC expires, we expect it to be replaced by the winner of the November competition with a fresh set of requirements.
