FIFA 22 Jones and Laporte Showdown SBC

As Manchester City and Liverpool get set to clash in what is shaping up to be the most anticipated Premier League match of the year, FIFA 22 players will have the opportunity to complete the Jones and Laporte Showdown Series SBC.

FIFA 22’s Showdown Series information screen states that players will receive daily Showdown content until April 7. Evidently, this would make the Jones and Laporte Showdown SBC the final cards up for grabs.

This particular Showdown Series SBC offers players a major risk as it will be nearly impossible to predict the outcome of this pivotal clash between Manchester City and Liverpool.

There’s no doubt that both Jones and Laporte will prove to be monstrous additions with either +2 or +1 upgrades, so here’s how to complete the Showdown SBC.

If you’re only looking to complete one of these players then Jones clearly looks like the attractive pick. He’s a very well-rounded midfielder who has excellent ties to England and the Premier League.

His Pace and Shooting could use a boost but that can be solved with a Chemistry Style. Meanwhile, you’ll certainly dance around opposing midfield players thanks to Jones’ excellent Dribbling stats. In addition, 4* weak foot and skill moves are a welcome sight.

For starters, Laporte’s 79 Acceleration is the biggest issue with this card. He may feel sluggish at times and you’ll want to pair him with a faster CB partner. Nonetheless, a +2 upgrade and a Shadow Chemistry Style will make Laporte feel as smooth as can be.

Laporte presents interesting linking opportunities given his nationality and Premier League ties. His Reactions are sublime, as are each and every one of his Defending stats.
