Lionel Messi, Barcelona
Pass completion: 85%
Tackles made: 11
Overall ranking score: 37
It's certainly a surprise to see Messi this low down on our list - but it's not a surprise to see that it is his low ranking in the tackling section that lets him down.
If he'd avoided injury he would probably rank higher than 9th for goals, so in another season he'd probably be higher up.
