The FIFA 23 Puzzle Master SBC is likely one of the last squad building challenges you’ll solve in the advanced section, as it can be difficult to complete without buying specific players in this football game. Not only does it put an exact requirement on how many nationalities you need, but also the number of leagues in order to bag yourself a Rare Players Pack, which is one of the best packs for netting FIFA 23 Icons and Heroes.
The key here is to generate strong links between players who play in the same league and hail from the same country – several Germans will do the heavy lifting for us in this solution. Julian Draxler playing in the Portuguese league is a crucial link for us in the LW spot; not only does he bring the chemistry of the Bundesliga players up, but he brings the Liga NOS ST and RW spots into play. The FIFA 23 chemistry system is vastly different from previous games in the series though, so check out our guide if you’re wondering exactly how it works.
Cheapest Puzzle Master SBC squad
Thankfully, with the changes to the way chemistry works this year, you can complete the Puzzle Master SBC by relying on the strong links of a few players and filling in the rest around them. Here is the cheapest Puzzle Master SBC solution:
|Draxler||LW||Liga NOS||Benfica||900 coins|
|Paulinho||ST||Liga NOS||Sporting CP||650 coins|
|Goncalves||RW||Liga NOS||Sporting CP||700 coins|
With those players, the chemistry requirement for the SBC will be complete, so the rest of the SBC challenge is simply a case of ensuring the current amount of leagues and nationalities has been met, along with the squad rating of 80. These additional players should be very cheap to buy on the market if you don’t have them sat in your club already from previous packs.
|Ajorque||ST||Ligue 1||Strasbourg||700 coins|
|Rrahmani||CB||Serie A||Napoli||650 coins|
|Romagnoli||CB||Serie A||Lazio||900 coins|
With the Puzzle Master SBC complete you’ll have a Rare Players Pack waiting for you in the store. It’s a shame that the advanced SBC rewards aren’t tradable this year, but they’ll do a good job when it comes to filling out your club early.
