After going a few months off, the UEFA Champions League finally came back with aplomb this season. A lot of football fans have been stretching their necks to catch glimpses of their football icons donning their team colours and treating us to exciting matches.

Most of the household names have been doing their thing, while some of our best players are still been stirred from slumber. So far, it has promised to be an interesting and thrilling season with a lot of highlights and incredible moments from our favorite superstars in the European tournament.

This piece, therefore, will talk about some players - most of them still like sleeping giants right now - who are likely to take the centre stage and make the season a very interesting one for us. Be aware though that most of these players are household names, whilea couple of them are players who are just catching attention but are sure to make great impressions in the tournament. They are as follows:

#5 Serge Gnabry

Serge Gnabry is another hot property in Europe at present. Arsenal will be kicking themselves for letting the boy leave some seasons ago. He has been at Bayern Munich for a while and he was having cameo performances every now and then.

However, this season, he appears to be staking his claim as one of the most promising superstars. The four goals he notched away against Tottenham Hotspur should make sure of that. Besides, the German cannot be overlooked when you’re counting players who could light up the Champions League this term - thanks to his brilliant performances in recent weeks.

If he can maintain the kind of performances he's been putting up in the Champions League for the past few weeks, then, the rest of the competition better start watching out for him, else, they’ll get stunned. He has 4 goals and an assist to his name from 4 appearances in the European tournament this term.
