The Champions League is the elite stage for many world-class players, but who has been the cream of this season’s crop and who has the potential to take their club all the way?
Here, we look at the top three performers in this season's Champions League:
3. Yaya Toure – Manchester City
While his side will most likely be playing their last Champions League game of the season at Barcelona on Wednesday, Toure has shown his variety with some thrilling performances.
Fast, strong and with deadly accurate shooting, the Ivory Coast captain has everything a box-to box-midfielder needs. If City are going to turn around the 2-0 deficit at the Camp Nou, Toure will have to be at his best.
2. Cristiano Ronaldo – Real Madrid
With a brace in Real’s 6-1 away win at Schalke, Ronaldo has been a key player in the unbelievably potent Madrid front three.
Topping the Champions League scoring charts with 11, Ronaldo will be looking to boost his tally against the German side in the second leg. Madrid will certainly need their number seven to be on top form if their going to take the trophy back to the Bernabeu for the 10th time.
1. Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Paris Saint Germain
A thrilling season for the Swede, Zlatan has been the main man for PSG and who’s to say he can’t take them all the way in Europe?
An aerial threat, strong and technically superb, Ibrahimovic is only a goal behind Ronaldo in the scoring charts. The former AC and Inter Milan player has the potential to take the trophy back to the French capital for the first time.
Who is your Champions League player of the season? And who will win the coveted trophy?
