German twins Sven and Lars Bender are retiring at the end of this season. EA Sports created an End of an Era card for each of the brothers in FIFA 21. We solve Lars Bender in this article, who also turns out to be the better of the twins.
We already looked at Sven Bender in detail and weren't that impressed. His brother Lars, on the other hand, is really exciting. End of an Era Lars Bender can be played at his natural RB position to great success, but he is stronger at another position, as our solution reveals. In case you still prefer Sven, here is our cheapest SBC for him:
End of an Era Lars Bender
- Position: RB
- Nation: Germany
- League: Bundesliga
- Team: Borussia Dortmund
- OVR: 88
- Weak Foot: 3 stars
- Skill Moves: 3 stars
- Price: approx. 231,000 coins
- Expiry: April 3
In FIFA 21 it has become common practice to play (fast) full backs on 7 chemistry in the center of defense. End of an Era Lars Bender is predestined for this and is much better there than his brother Sven, who is supposed to be a natural.
92 pace allows him to keep up with the fastest strikers (well, maybe not POTM Kylian Mbappé) with defensive and physical values to boot. Put the Anchor chemistry style on top, and you get a center back with 92 OVR.
End of an Era Lars Bender SBC Solution
For the strong End of an Era Lars Bender card, you have to trade two teams, which are slightly cheaper than his brother Sven:
- Min. one German player, min. 84 OVR, min. 65 chemistry
- Min. Bayer Leverkusen, min. one TOTW player, min. 84 OVR, min. 60 chemistry
Team 1: Germany
You can compose team 1 for just under 102,000 coins. The team comes entirely from the Italian Serie A. Atalanta's Robin Gosens fulfills the nation requirement.
Team 2: Bayer Leverkusen
The second team is around 130,000 coins, with goalkeeper Lukáš Hrádecký covering the team demand, just like he did in our Sven Bender SBC solution. Rafał Gikiewicz from TOTW 25 is our In-Form.
