SBCs continue to be another avenue in acquiring the special Ones to Watch (OTW) players in FIFA 23. With more and more content launching weekly throughout the long-running football franchise, it’s difficult to stay on top of it all. That’s why this guide is here to break down how to complete the Franck Kessié OTW SBC in FIFA 23.
FIFA 23 Kessié OTW SBC Guide
Unlike our earlier SBC guides, these specialty cards always dial things up in terms of cost. To complete the Kessié OTW SBC in FIFA 23 specifically, players will have to complete three separate tasks for a range of rewards. Whether those rewards and the ultimate prize are worth it, of course, is up to you.
The following is a break down of what you’ll need to complete each task, as well as your reward for doing so.

FIFA 23 Kessié OTW SBC Solution
Like we said, this is not going to be cheap. That said, one thing players will not have to worry about with regards to this SBC is a chemistry requirement. That may make things a bit less costly. However, what is not there in chemistry is more than made up for by squad overall requirements—particularly later on.
Tactical Emulation: ~21,500 – 23,600 Coins
We’re going to repeat ourselves, but keep this in mind: If you’re looking for cheaper but still rare gold players in the 84-overall range, you cannot go wrong with a combination of Chiellini and Insigne.
Thus far, they’ve proven pretty useful for SBCs that require a certain overall. So much so, in fact, that they’ll be featured in all three of our solutions.
Of course, needing an 86-overall player will likely cost you five figures. Immobile, Lukaku, and Lautaro Martínez are all solid options, running between 12,000-15,000 coins. Trapp and Mendy, both goalkeepers, can also fill the 86-overall void for a similar price.
LaLiga: ~27,750 – 32,150 Coins
Players will need another 86-overall player for this squad, and quite frankly, you’re not going to find another player with this rating all that much cheaper than Parejo. He’ll run you roughly 13,500 coins but he’s also a LaLiga player; two birds with one stone and all that.
Just as the build above, there is no chemistry requirement for this one. That’s why we’ve got players from multiple leagues. However, you do still need to hit that 84-overall threshold. That said, players can stock up on a small handful of higher-rated common cards (Pickford, Guerreiro, Jiménez, and Aritz Elustondo).
85-Rated Squad: ~52,000 – 61,000 Coins
This is where it goes a bit out the window with regards to price. Dias, as of this moment, runs “cheapest” among those with an 88 overall—along with a couple of goalkeepers, he’ll run you about 27,500 coins.
Instead of picking a GK for the 88-overall requirement, we went with a cheaper option with a still solid overall for this specific build.
Chiellini, Insigne, Trippier, Berardi, Džeko, Mertens and Tielemans will all run you between 2,000 – 2,500—not bad individually, but together they add up.
So that’s all you need to know to complete the Franck Kessié OTW SBC in FIFA 23. It isn’t cheap, but these types of SBCs rarely are.
