1. Lionel Messi

The Argentine Lionel Messi once again stole the show with some sensational performances with his attacking style of play. He and Luis Suarez formed a dangerous frontline partnership showcasing their predatory skills with some exemplary performances.

The 32-year-old outclassed his opponents with his creative dribbles and sensational finishes scoring 19 goals with 12 assists to his name in 22 La Liga games this season. Many thought that maybe after the departure of Neymar, the balance of their forward line might get affected, but the 32-year-old has teamed up quite well with Suarez while his co-ordination with the midfield has looked sharp as ever.

Messi has deceived the opposition’s defence with his accelerating runs and crafty dribbles. Lionel Messi holds a commanding position in Barcelona’s forward line and has decided the outcome of a game with his individual brilliance.

Messi has been an influential figure in Barcelona’s forward line. He has also registered 2 goals in 6 games this Champions League season. Messi has had a fine on-field understanding with Antoinne Griezmann too. The forward has also netted 2 goals in 2 Copa Del Ray games this season.
