It is always good to have a single player that can really help the team win close encounters that could possibly go either way. That one superstar who comes up with a crucial goal at the right moment, just when the team is looking for someone to step up and make an instant impact.
It could be any superstar within the squad, a starter, or a super sub who has that desire to go the extra mile and push the team to a key win. Despite that, consistency is the key here and only a player who does it regularly is recognised as a true match-winner.
Doing this regularly is the key for the making of a legend, and the best footballers in the world generally tend to do it more often than not for their sides. Here is a list of the five best match winners across Europe this term, who have really made a significant difference for their clubs.
#5 Antoine Griezmann (7 times)
The French World Cup winner is one of the most underrated forwards in the world of football and has won multiple titles during his time with Atletico Madrid. He finished in third place in the race to win the Ballon d'Or, ahead of the likes of Lionel Messi, Eden Hazard, and more.
However, he was yet again not given the kind of recognition that he possibly deserved and was brushed aside by the likes of Ronaldo and Modric.
Griezmann has once again shown his worth this season, with the attacker scoring 7 match-winning goals which have helped his team secure some crucial wins in all competitions.
He has always been a match-winner both at national and club level, which is why he has been a target for a host of clubs across the continent.
