Gabriel Batistuta

The perfect all-round striker, Batistuta was perhaps best known for his unstoppable shooting power.

During a career spent largely in Italy, ‘Batigol‘ had a goal-record to match any striker of his generation and, despite the presence of Diego Maradona and Lionel Messi, remains Argentina’s all-time top goalscorer.

Unlike many on this illustrious list, Batistuta gained little experience of Champions League football but could have no doubt produced similar goalscoring form in the world's biggest club competition given the chance.
