    10 MLS goals is going to be tough

    If you don't care about the win try ask your rival if he is willing to score 10 goals with you. If he has MLS players in his team and he is a good guy you can help each other and probably do this in 1 game. Depends on who you get.

    89 - Martinez & 92 Ibra help quite a bit … more so if you throw in 91 Alessandrini & 85 Piatti out wide. Maybe 84 Morales and 87 Bradley. Then pick a different league for defence.

    Yep, pretty much what I did. I know it's not a popular opinion, but I actually really enjoy these 'Score with...' challenges when there isn't a win condition involved. They're a chill way of working towards a decent reward without the eye-bulging stress of needing to win. You know every goal you score will count towards the objective.

    I agree too. It also gives you a chance to play with players that you don’t normally use which can be fun e.g. I packed Quagliarella and Zapata TOTS so was nice to try using them for the serie A goals objective. Only problem with the mls one is that futties alessandrini is the only decent mls player I have.

    Yes, this too. I also used Zapata but found him next to useless. So clunky. Straight into the Hazard SBC once I was done with that objective!

    I was finally "forced" to use my Serie A team, never could find enough will to try them. It was nice. Sunday without the lags (finally) and I'm 3/4 at the moment. But there was definitely too much objectives regarding French players and Chinese League during the year.

    That Serie A objective has forced me to use a loan FS Piatek that I had in my club. He's probably the worst player I've ever used.

    I can agree with this. Thankfully packed Suso and Zapata recently who got the job done.

    I'm using NIF Golds and have Lasagna up front. That guy can't do anything... I'm on 2/4 now, hopefully I can get it done in another 3 or 4 matches.

    Used Alessandrini upfront to do the MLS goals objective and after a slow start when I was trying to complete the Italian and French ones at the same time he got 7 in the last 3 games! Really impressed at how good his finishing is!

    Set my team name to MLS objective and 3rd game in the other guy gifted me 10 and then quit, absolute hero!

    Gutted though I can’t remember his PSN to thank him, just his team name 😩

    Caved.

    Because ICONs dropped in value so much I ended up buying one for 190k. I've sold all my untradeables and my base gullit but Prime Gullit sbc is done thanks to Fut Swap Lasagna! No longer need the icon pack now so will aim for Courtois and nab some of the other 90 rated players to go with it.

    I found the MLS objective incredibly painful - I’d go so far as to say it was my worst swaps objective experience of the year (and I’ve done all of them).

    Decided not to do FB Zlatan (had him originally, but never got on with him, and he’s not even good value SBC fodder now) so was attempting it with Futties Alessandrini, NIF Rooney and NIF Martinez.

    After about 10 games I was only on 5 goals. Had started a few games moving my keeper out the way, but that just led to dabs but no reciprocals...

    But then in my last game, where the other guy was definitely in try hard mode, Rooney banged in a hat-trick and Alessandrini a brace (and I won). A splendid way to finish the objective...

    Good luck to any out there still grinding.

    A tip for the future. Try doing these objectives during the weekend. Many people do this and if it doesn't require the win there is much bigger chance that opponent will help you (and you will help him of course). At this point of the week everyone is playing just for wins.

    That POTM Martinez is really good. He's been scoring well for me in Divison 1.

    Yep, the weekend idea is definitely a winner.
    I did the US objective just with Alessandrini up front and started badly, but then got a couple of hattricks. It was an annoying grind, but I went hard on the weekend to avoid the CW players.

    I go away for two weeks on the 14th, what are the chances we get another 3 players in the weekly challenge tomorrow and maybe an sbc before then? Would love to get my ten players for the prime icon before I go! For no reason other than I like opening icon packs.

    I'd expect 2-4 weekly objectives tomorrow.

    Very generous, no wins required and doable in 2 or 3 games 👍

    Why noone told me that scoring too much own goals in Rivals results in walkover? :joy:

    A guy was helping me with England assists, it was 5:1 for me. After that I started scoring own goals to level it (he had La liga team and already had 1 goal). After 3rd I got a message that I lost :joy:

    I'm doing them too but since I started using La Liga team I'm playing against mega teams with no will to do any objectives. I barely scored 1 goal in each of the last 2 games.

    edit: finished, phew :)

    Got 2 assists with Jim Hunter but doesn’t count? Is he not eligible?

    Edit: and before you ask yes, did it in rivals of course

    I found a people in Divison 1 doing the objectives too. If I came up against a mega team, I just quit.

    This is the player you get when you ”Score a goal with an Eredivisie player in 2 separate rivals games”
