November 09

This season has provided so many entertaining matches across Europe. Even in the Champions League, there have been so many standout performers. The usual suspects (Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo) are settling down to their new environments. Messi moved to PSG last summer and has already shown what he can do in the Champions League for the Parisians. Although the six-time Ballon D’or winner has struggled for form and fitness in the Ligue 1.

Cristiano Ronaldo on the other hand has settled in quickly at Manchester United. He is already the team’s best player and goalscorer. Although Manchester United have problems on and off the pitch, Ronaldo still steals headlines regularly.

So, who are the top five best footballers so far in Europe?

Erling Haaland

Many thought Haaland might not begin this season at Borussia Dortmund.

However, the German giants have been able to keep their most prized asset. Haaland picked up right where he left off last season. Although he has missed some crucial games for Dortmund through injury, the Norwegian has already plundered 13 goals in just 10 appearances this season.

Vinícius José Paixão de Oliveira Júnior

A remarkable turnaround in form has seen Vinicius become one of the best forwards currently in football. Last season many Real Madrid fans criticized him for not having enough end product. 

This year, with the help of Carlo Ancelotti, Vinicius has taken La Liga by storm. The Brazilian looks like he has cemented his place in the Real Madrid team ahead of Eden Hazard. 

Vinicius has scored important goals for Real Madrid this season and even singlehandedly won matches for the Los Blancos. Vini has scored 9 times and provided 7 assists in 16 appearances.

Karim Benzema

Karim Benzema has continued from where he left off last season. The Frenchman continues to lead the Real Madrid attack efficiently.

Benzema is at his peak right now and has been enjoying a good partnership up front with Vinicius Jnr. Benzema has scored 14 goals and provided 8 assists in just 15 appearances so far this season. 

Robert Lewandowski

There really is nothing more to say about the brilliance of Lewandowski, is there? The Polish striker has already scored 23 goals this season. Yes! 23, and we are still in November.

Lewandowski has been as deadly as ever this season and could break UCL records. Lewandowski already has 8 UCL goals and he will be looking at breaking some records as Bayern progress in the competition.

Mohamed Salah

Fast, blistering, deadly, efficient! Mohamed Salah has undoubtedly been the best player in the world this season. The Egyptian has already scored some mesmerizing goals this season.

Salah has also been a very good provider as he has registered seven assists along with 10 goals in the Premier League.
