FIFA 22 has introduced two player item SBCs belonging to the showdown promo, which features Barcelona centre-back and Niklas Sule.
Showdown promo, like the TOTGS promo in FIFA 22, is linked with the UEFA Champions League. The first two player items SBCs from the Showdown promo, belong to a classic match that will take place between Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
Showdown player items are available to all FIFA 22 Ultimate Team players. However, they are only available as part of the SBCs so far and will likely be on objectives as well. But the chances of obtaining these boosted player items are minimal as they are unlikely to be made available in packs.

Review of Gerard Pique's Showdown card for FIFA 22 Ultimate Team
Like Niklas Sule, Gerard Pique also has an 88 rated CB card that boasts a solid set of stats. The boosted card has 80 Pace, which removes the major problem of the base variant of Pique's card in FIFA 22. With 89 Defense and 87 Physicality, Pique's Showdown is a great card to have and justifies the potential investment costs quite well. It is a solid option for those FIFA 22 players running La Liga teams or making a Barcelona-themed squad of their own.
