He finally did it! In February 2021, the FIFA community crowned Argentina's Lionel Messi as Player of the Month in Spain. The La Liga POTM SBC is anything but cheap: the card costs around 1.7 million coins. Not at all surprising for a 96 OVR card.
After a disappointing La Liga POTM in January, the February special card is as far from that as possible. However, that comes at a price. A 1.7 million coins price, to be exact. Here's our Lionel Messi La Liga POTM SBC solution.

Team 1: Argentina
Team 1 costs 95,000 coins and comes from La Liga and Serie A. As a TOTW card you use goalkeeper Lukasz Skorupski from Bologna and TOTW 23.
Team 2: Tactical Emulation
In this team, which costs around 150,000 coins, we focus on La Liga, with the exception of keeper Rui Patrício and Éver Banega. Jordi Alba serves as a Barca player.
Team 3: La Liga
The third team is just a tad bit more expensive than the second - around 170,000 coins. It is mostly derived from the Premier League. La Liga goalkeeper Aitor provides the link to his Spanish compatriots Pau Lopez and Rodri. We take Akihiro Ienaga as our In-Form.
Team 4: Top Form
Team 4 will cost you 260,000 coins. We can go for hybrid teams from here on out because there are virtually no chemistry requirements. Robin Gosens is the In-Form this time.
Team 5: 88-rated squad
If team 4 was not expensive enough, team 5's 450,000 coins should be it. We mentioned the lack of chemistry, which allows us to throw seven goalkeepers in this squad. We need that OVR though, so all of them are from La Liga and the Premier League.
Team 6: 89-Rated Squad
OVR demands are so high for the final team that we can't add as many GKs and keep the OVR above 89. Bonkers! For 617,000 coins, we can "only" get by with four keepers and the high-rated cards of Kevin De Bruyne, Casemiro, and Karim Benzema.
If you have handed in all six teams, your coin account will be empty and your heart will be full cause you'll be in possession of the Lionel Messi La Liga POTM card.
