Champions league football returns today with Barcelona and PSV Eindhoven kicking off at the Camp Nou.
Messi and Cristiano have been the major comparison in recent times when it comes to the Champions league but it will be unfair to overlook some top attackers in Champions league this season. Below is a list of 7 attackers which you should watch out for this season in the Champions league.
1. Sergio Aguero
The Manchester City striker is one of the deadliest in the game currently. He has already had a hand in 5 goals for Manchester City this season, scoring 3 and recording 2 assists.
2. Romelu Lukaku
I’ve always maintained that Lukaku is an underrated striker. The Manchester United striker keeps improving in every match and it will be unfair to disregard his threat when he’s on the ball. He has scored 4 goals in 5 matches for Manchester United so far this season.
3. Mohamed Salah
The Liverpool forward has proven that he can perform when played and he can’t be disregarded as one of the reasons Liverpool made it to the UCL final last season. His speed and ball control can be dangerous. He has two goals and an assist so far for Liverpool in the league.
4. Lionel Messi
The Barcelona forward has always been on the list when it comes to the Champions league and tonight, he’ll be the man to watch out for when Barcelona face PSV Eindhoven. He has 6 goals and 2 assists for Barcelona so far in the league.
5. Cristiano Ronaldo
He left Real Madrid to join Juventus in a shocking transfer. He scored two goals in his last match for Juventus in the league and we know what he can do when it comes to the Champions league, a tournament which he cherishes most.
6. Gareth Bale
The Real Madrid forward has been in top form so far this season as he steps in to replace Cristiano Ronaldo who joined Juventus. Bale can cause trouble for defenders with his speed and ball threat and he’s one of the men to watch out for this season in the Champions league. He has scored 3 goals and 2 assists in 4 games for Real Madrid so far in the league.
The spoilt kid who went to Brazil cannot be overlooked in the Champions league this season. The main reason PSG acquired his services from Barcelona was to have an upper hand when it come to the Champions league and he has to prove his worth this season. He has netted 6 times and recorded 3 assists in 7 games for PSG in Ligue 1.
