Alvarez vs Perisic Which Showdown SBC to do in FIFA 22
Manchester City squares off with Tottenham Hotspur in 3 days and this could be one really intense match.
Showdown SBCs are great and EA has dropped another one for the Man City and Spurs match. This time they have selected Julian Alvarez from City and Ivan Perisic from Spurs.
For the ones who do not know, Showdown SBCs give attribute boosts depending on the result of the match. A win would give the player from the winning team a +2 overall boost while the draw would give both candidates a +1.
A know a lot of you would be confused about which team might win since they are so evenly balanced this season. But with the help of statistics, I guess we could make a good enough decision.
Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur :
The last 5 league matches for both teams resulted in 3 wins and 2 draws and they are sitting on the 2nd and 3rd spots on the table with Man City being ahead on goal difference. Now I know most of you would be doing the SBC considering which team might win but this is such an even contest that it is really difficult to predict.
Check out the last 10 games they played against each other.

There you go, We have Spurs in the lead with 5 wins and Man City with 4. Only 1 game ended in a draw. This tells us that the Spurs might just have that little of the history in their favor. But is not everything in football. It is about the present. For matchups so even, we might consider the fact that Man City had been on a great run last season.
If you want my personal opinion. I think Man City might win this one. But it is going to be so close for sure.
Alvarez vs Perisic? Who is better in FUT?
Since it is really tough to decide which team might emerge victorious let’s consider both cards individually. Alvarez is from Argentina and Perisic is from Croatia. When we talk about links, I guess Argentina would be better.
The next crucial thing that I saw was that Ivan Perisic has 4-star skills and a 5-star weak foot. While Alvarez had 5-star skill moves with a 4-star weak foot. At this point in the game, I would always go for skill moves. With defenders having 99 defense, 5-star skill is a must at least for me.
But we saw how broken the Haaland card is even with 4-star skills. But not everyone is Haaland in this game. I do not feel Perisic will have that Haaland vibe to him. Which is why the easier choice would be Alvarez.
I personally feel that Alvarez without an upgrade would still be better than Perisic with an upgrade just because of the skill moves. I know a lot of you would be like FIFA is not only about chaining a thousand skill moves. It is true but it is not my fault that the game is designed in a way where the reverse elastico is the go-to skill move of the game.
Go ahead and use whichever player you feel comfortable with. But if you ask me Alvarez would be a better choice. He is also more expensive than Perisic. This clearly shows how much dribbling matters in this game.
