As we near the end of the group stages of the UEFA Champions League, we take a look at some of Europe’s finest who have already impressed with their performances this season.
The boys are set to be separated from the men as the last game of the group stages is upon us. While some teams have yet to qualify, some have already booked their place in the knockout stages, with the help of some players who have played some amazing football this season.
Some of them are:
Although the Portuguese football god is enduring a goal drought in the Spanish La Liga, he has been making waves in the UCL this season. The Real Madrid superstar has been firing on all cylinders in the competition, scoring 8 goals and is currently the highest goal scorer this season.
His goals have not helped Real Madrid to top their group as they’ve ceded that to Tottenham Hotspurs. But at least they’re well on their way to the knockout stages.
The world’s most expensive player has quickly made his mark on the whole PSG team. His six goals and a couple of assists have helped PSG set all kinds of records in the Champions League this season.
In their last game against Celtic, the Parisians set a new record for the most goals scored in the group stages of the UCL. The MCN gang have been on a rampage this season and will be raring to go in their last game against Bayern Munich.
The Swede, just returning from injury, has yet to make his mark for Manchester United in the Champions League this season. But the big man has been breaking some other records in Europe’s Premier football competition.
After appearing for Manchester United in their last Champions League game against Basel, Ibrahimovic set a new record as he became the first player to appear for 7 different clubs in the UCL. #HistoryMaker
Although injured now, the English defender has played a huge part in ensuring that Manchester City has maintained a 100% record in the UCL this season. The defender has scored 3 goals so far in this campaign – the most for any defender this season.
