The Showdown SBCs cards were leaked by FutSheriff on Twitter on Monday, and are expected to arrive in FIFA 22 this week. The ratings of the cards aren't confirmed, but both players are similar in stats and will have the same rating.

According to FutSheriff, Kovacic will have big boosts to his passing and dribbling, as well as Keïta, likely in the high 80s to low 90s. Both will be solid central midfielders to add to your Premier League squads, and will have plenty of club strong links to get them on good chemistry.

Whichever team wins this Sunday, their corresponding Showdown SBC player will receive a +2 upgrade to their card, with the loser staying the same rating. If Liverpool and Chelsea draw, both Keïta and Kovacic will receive just a +1 upgrade.
