Is it worth completing these SBCs in FIFA 23?

Both cards have their own pros and cons when it comes to their in-game performance. While they possess impressive stats, Ziyech has a two-star weak foot, which will severely restrict his abilities in-game. Similarly, Ferran Torres is more expensive than Ziyech but lacks the five-star skill moves the Moroccan superstar can perform.

However, both SBCs are priced reasonably, and FUT enthusiasts will find the cards worth investing in, especially if they believe the particular team will win their upcoming tie.

Morocco took the world of football by storm with their performance in the World Cup, ending the group stages undefeated and as group leaders. Spain, on the other hand, barely made it to the knockout stages, despite being favorites in their group. While form favors the African nation, the opposition has all the technical advantages to make this tie an intriguing one.

The extremely competitive nature of this matchup makes for the perfect opportunity to release Showdown SBCs in FIFA 23. Both Hakim Ziyech and Ferran Torres have made regular appearances for their respective nations in the tournament and will be battling it out for the ultimate bragging rights and the +2 overall upgrade in this knockout fixture.
