For the first time in many years, neither Ronaldo nor Messi are considered to be the main favorites to win the Champions League. It is interesting to know which players are having the best season individually. We provide the seven highest-rated players in the 2019/20 season according to Whoscored statistics:
7. Kevin de Bruyne – 7.90
Manchester City’s top player Kevin de Bruyne is also leading the Premier League assist table with 15 assists this season. The Belgian midfielder missed the biggest part of last season due to injury.
De Bruyne is perfectly capable of compensating for the loss this season and is the highest-rated player in the PL for the 2019/20 season.
6. Cristiano Ronaldo – 7.91
Cristiano Ronaldo’s sixth place is only due to the Portuguese’s weak start of the season. We can predict that he will win the award for the best player of the Italian Championship for the second consecutive time.
In the Champions League, Ronaldo is looking forward to Lyon, who is one of his favorite rivals, and the Portuguese will have the chance to continue improving European records.
5. Jaydon Sancho – 7.96
Sancho is one of the most promising rising stars in the world. The English teenager has 13 goals and 13 assists in his 19 appearances this season. Accordingly, he became the youngest player in Bundesliga history to score so many goals in one season.
4. Kylian Mbappe – 8.01
Mbappe recently became the youngest player in Champions League history to score 15 goals in the tournament.
The Frenchman currently has 15 goals and four assists in 15 appearances in the Ligue 1, while he has scored five goals in five Champions League matches. Fans expect him to win Euro tournaments.
3. Robert Lewandowski – 8.12
Robert Lewandowski is the best center forward this season. In 31 appearances in the 2019/20 season, the Polish forward has scored 36 goals and three assists and is a top scorer in both the Champions League and Bundesliga.
Especially impressive is Lewandowski’s performance in the Champions League, where he scored ten goals in five matches.
2. Lionel Messi – 8.65
Lionel Messi has been named the best player of the match 11 times this season.
The Argentine forward has scored 14 goals in 18 matches and 12 assists, making him both the top scorer and best assistant of the Spanish Championship.
Messi’s goals and assists have led Barcelona to 23 points this season, and it’s hard to imagine what a Catalans season would be if not for Messi’s superb form.
1. Neymar – 8.66
Neymar has just 0.01 points higher than Messi, which could change after each round. Neymar has an injury, and we do not know whether he will even play against Dortmund.
In the last ten matches before the injury, the Brazilian had 11 goals, eight assists, and six best player awards. He received the highest “10.0” rating three times this season. Accordingly, he took the first place among the Top 7 Highest-Rated Players of the current term.
