FIFA 21 it's not a perfect game. For years now, the simulation title of EA Sports seems to have taken the path of "Never change a winning team", changing very little within its gameplay formula, with bugs and glitches which meanwhile begin to accumulate relentlessly, especially within the modality FIFA Ultimate Team.
As documented by various users over the past few days, the Squad Battles - high difficulty single matches against community created teams - would contain a exploit able to give easy victories to the crafty ones.
