Top 100: Best players in the Champions League (1)

Published Add your comment

Just four teams remain in this season's Champions League after a whopping 120 matches, with Chelsea, Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid the only sides left with a chance of lifting the famous big-eared trophy in Lisbon next month.

As the competition approaches the latter stages a host of star names have proven they can excel on Europe's biggest stage, with Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and co. more than matched for individual quality by the holders Bayern Munich, who have an embarrassment of riches in practically ever position on the pitch.

Countdowns focusing on top players across the continent normally centre around domestic form, but on this occasion GMS has decided to concentrate on which players can raise their game for massive European nights when it really counts most.

Online football stats haven Squawka have provided the data to help us discover who the best 100 players have been in the Champions League this season, with a minimum of five appearances in the competition required for consideration.

Squawka use their set of metrics to come up with a performance score for each and every player in the tournament, which has allowed us to determine with some degree of certainty whether Ronaldo, Messi, Zlatan Ibrahimovic or indeed one of Bayern's star-studded squad deserve recognition above all others for their midweek displays this season.
