There are few bigger stages in sport than the Champions League.
Considering some footballers would even prefer to win 'Big Ears' than the World Cup itself, the prestige of Europe's biggest competition is clear for every supporter to see.
And while it can elevate already legendary players to even dizzier heights, it can also serve as a launchpad for young players being given their opportunity to shine.
In terms of last season, it's difficult to look beyond the ranks of the successful Ajax team with the likes of Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong proving outstanding performers.
Although both players were already considered class acts, their unforeseen run to the semi-finals show how beautifully unpredictable the Champions League can be.

Some players like Kylian Mbappe - despite qualifying age-wise - have been excluded, but there's a nice of mix of known starlets and players who could shine from absolutely nowhere.
