What a week it's been for FIFA 21 Headliners players! A total of five cards receive massive boosts this week that make them even better than they were, which was already very, very good.

Of the five upgrades, four are due to team success. Four consecutive wins result in an upgrade and that's what happened for these guys. The fifth upgrade came after TOTW 18's release last night.

In-Form Upgrade for Karim Benzema

Karim Benzema is the only Headliner to work for his upgrade individually. The Frenchman was picked for TOTW 18, where he is rated at 92. That means that by rule his Headliners card jumped to 93 OVR. Relatively low pace pushes Benzema out of the FIFA 21 meta and even now his Headliners card can be acquired for a little over 200,000 coins.

Real Madrid are not having their best season, but they do have a favorable schedule that might see Benzema make yet another jump in the not-too-distant future. All it takes is three more Real victories.

Karim Benzema (Real Madrid) - 92 -> 93 OVR

  • +2 Pace
  • +1 Shooting
  • + 2 Passing
  • + 1 Dribbling
  • + 1 Defense
  • + 1 Physical

Team Wins Headliners Updates

Four is the key number here. Four FIFA 21 Headliners received upgrades following the fourth consecutive win of their team. None of them reach Benzema's OVR but these numbers are still nothing to sneeze at.

Sergej Milinković-Savić (Lazio) - 88 OVR -> 89 OVR

  • +2 Pace
  • +1 Shooting
  • + 1 Passing
  • + 1 Dribbling
  • + 2 Defense

Riyad Mahrez (Manchester City) - 87 OVR -> 88 OVR

There could be a team-win Headliners upgrade way sooner than Benzema's turn arrives. Rafinha (Paris Saint-Germain), Jonathan Bamba (Lille) and Leon Goretzka (Bayern München) currently need a single win to achieve the four in a row required for the upgrade. We'll keep a close tab on the trio and update you if EA updates them.
