We may be closer to March right now than we are to January, but it's just now that we receive the Ligue 1 POTM SBC for the month of January. Metz attacking midfielder Farid Boulaya gets the honors and we have the honor of showing you the cheapest solution.
December's POTM Yusuf Yazıcı did not convince and at first glance, neither does January's POTM. Farid Boulaya could be of use to a lot of FUT players, however, especially for the minimal price he merits.
The FIFA 21 Farid Boulaya Ligue 1 POTM SBC Card
- Position: CAM
- Nation: Algeria
- League: Ligue 1
- Team: Metz
- OVR: 82
- Weak Foot: 4 Stars
- Skill Moves: 5 Stars
- Price: approx. 27,000 coins
- Expiry: March 18
A POTM at 82 OVR is a joke, right? That may be true, but Farid Boulaya is extremely cheap, has a 4-star weak foot and 5-star skill moves, can be equally effective in attacking midfield or on the wing and can excel with the correct chemistry style.
If you plan on keeping the Algerian at his natural position, turn him into a Maestro to boost passing and shooting and you have a fantastic playmaker in your hands. If you go for Engine, you can comfortably take Boulaya out on the wing and dribble your way around the defense at blistering pace. As you can see, there is plenty you can do with this card and it would cost you the FUT equivalent of spare change.
The Cheapest Solution
Of course, for less than 30,000 coins, only one team will go for securing POTM Farid Boulaya:
- Min. one League 1 player, min. one TOTW player, min. 80 OVR, min. 80 chemistry
Team 1: Ligue 1
About half of the total coins for this team go towards Ludovic Blas. The Nantes man returns the investment by checking the In-Form and Ligue 1 boxes at once. We have a couple more Ligue 1 players on here, including our goalkeeper. The majority of this high chemistry squad plays in the German Bundesliga though.
