Top 15: Key Champions League creators (1)

Published 1 Comments

While there is plenty of top flight football to sink your teeth into this weekend, GMS just can’t help but get giddy at the prospect of next week’s Champions League last 16 second legs.

So many of the ties are in the balance after close first legs and the return clashes between the sides are set to be intriguing encounters.

So we should be in for some fireworks come Tuesday and Wednesday when the likes of Arsenal and Manchester City travel to Bayern Munich and Barcelona respectively, trying to find a way to overcome two-goal deficits following disastrous red cards in the home legs.

This stage of the competition sees the very best players in Europe strut their stuff against one and another, creating a scenario for classic encounters with some football's biggest stars trying to outdo each other.

GMS have their favourite aspect of this showdown and it is the battle of the creators in all the top teams; the players that do not only just make things tick for their teams, but are the individuals that are putting the chances on plates for their teammates.

We have used the incredible stats website that is to compile the 15 players in the competition so far that have the highest average number of key passes per game - key passes being those that create a goalscoring opportunity for their teammates.
