Lionel Messi has been rewarded for his outstanding displays with a new Ultimate Team card – and it’s incredible.
The 30-year-old Argentine, who helped Barcelona smash Real Madrid 3-0 in Saturday’s Clasico, received a Team of the Week (TOTW) card boasting an incredible 95 score.
In fact, it’s one point higher than cover star Cristiano Ronaldo’s standard 94-rated card.
But that’s not the only area where Messi trumps his old rival.
At 92 pace, he’s two points clear of Ronaldo’s 90 speed rating.
Elsewhere, he beats the Real Madrid ace on passing (90 compared to 82) and dribbling (98 to 90), and matches Ronaldo’s 93 shooting score.
Now, we know that Ronaldo has a 95 card, too – but even that scores lower than Messi in a number of key attributes.
For one, the 95 card only has 91 pace, 84 passing and 92 dribbling – all of which are trumped by the new
