The very first promo item is available via SBC in FIFA 23 as Ultimate Team players look to snap up the Ones to Watch Di Maria. Here’s a look at the cheapest solution to complete the Di Maria SBC.
EA Sports shocked the FIFA community when they decided to introduce a major change to Ultimate Team’s chemistry system. Long gone are the chemistry lines between players and with this change, SBCs in FIFA 23 will look quite different.
Ones to Watch is set to be FIFA 23‘s first promo, and while the full team is expected to be revealed on September 30 with the global release, you’ll have an opportunity to snap up the OTW Di Maria card as of September 26.
Here’s how to complete the OTW Di Maria SBC, along with the cheapest solutions.
FIFA 23 Ones to Watch Di Maria stats
As of now, Di Maria’s OTW stats mirror those of his Gold card. You may be thinking that this is a rather unimpressive SBC to start off FIFA 23, but OTW cards are all about future investment.
OTW cards are live special items that receive upgrades if the player meets certain criteria. This year, there are more ways to receive an upgrade than ever, which means Di Maria is likely to improve from this base rating.
Nonetheless, he makes for a decent starter card to kick off your Ultimate Team journey. His Pace is rather poor, but he makes up for that with top-tier Dribbling, excellent Passing, and 5-star skill moves.
How to complete FIFA 23 OTW Di Maria SBC
Luckily for FIFA 23 players, EA have decided not to include any chemistry requirements for this OTW Di Maria SBC. This makes finding a cheap solution rather simple, as you can avoid the complicated new chemistry system for now.
It’s difficult to pinpoint an exact value for this Di Maria SBC given that the FUT market is far from stable at the start of a new game. Nonetheless, you should expect to invest around 28,300 coins to complete the Di Maria SBC.
Tactical Emulation requirements
- # of players from Juventus: Min 1
- Squad Rating: Min 83
Tactical Emulation solution – Cost: 10,100 coins
Serie A requirements
- # of players from Serie A: Min 1
- Squad Rating: Min 84
Serie A solution – Cost: 18,200 coins
28,300 coins is far from a steep price, but given that this SBC is coming at the start of FIFA 23, players tend to be conservative with their coins as they look to build their Ultimate Team squads.
When it comes down to it, those who complete the Di Maria SBC believe that the winger will receive at least a couple of upgrades. With improved pace through upgrades, Di Maria’s OTW card could be a force to be reckoned with, all for less than 30,000 coins.
