Just recently, a new Champions League RTTK card was added for AC Milan’s wonderful midfielder, Ismaël Bennacer, who is now a viable playmaker for any Ultimate Team (UT) squad in FIFA 23.

The 24-year old central midfielder has been ever present for the Rossoneri, playing in all the club’s Champions League matches thus far.

Surprisingly, for such a convenient SBC, you have ample time to complete it before it expires on 16th October (Sunday). Better start on it now, though.
