Completing any SBC in EA FC 24 is a lot easier with a list of the cheapest 86 rated players, as it not only saves you time when building your squad, but also prevents you from wasting your hard-earned coins on overpriced cards.

I can't tell you how much time I've spent trying to figure out which players I should be buying for a Squad Building Challenge in the game, and often laziness overcomes everything and I end up overspending.

The table below removes that entirely, getting you straight to the players you need, and all you need to do now is go out and buy them for your squads.

It's not just 86s that we've got you covered on - check out our lists for the cheapest 84, 85, 87, and 88 rated players too.

EA FC 24 cheapest 86 rated players

Player Price
Pedri 4,300 coins
Wojciech Szczensy 4,300 coins
Paulo Dybala  4,400 coins
Parejo 4,500 coins
N'Golo Kante 4,600 coins
Khvicha Kvaratsksheila 4,600 coins
Sandro Tonali 4,700 coins
Riyad Mahrez 4,700 coins
Matthijs de Ligt 4,800 coins
Ilkay Gündoğan 4,900 coins
Rafael Leao 4,900 coins

As you can see, the average price of an 86 rated card right now in EA FC 24 is around 4,600 - which is a significantly smaller jump than recent times as they've now dropped in price. 

The exact same has happened with 85s because the game is now at a point where SBCs require much higher-rated cards. 

How much does an 86 rated squad cost?

Building an 86 rated squad will cost you under 48,00 coins, which is significantly less than a couple of months ago.

Do bear in mind that you don't need a full squad of 86s to get the rating to match, as you can often drop in two 85s, or include an 87 or 88 card to drop the ratings even further. Depending on the price of surrounding ratings, this might be the way to go.
