There is no doubt that European football possesses some of the finest attacking trios on the planet. Several top clubs are currently blessed with a host of talented attacking players, while some sides are blessed with a front-line capable of sending chills down the opposition's defence.

Gone are the days when clubs used to line up with two strikers up front. Today, clubs often rely on their front-line or front-three to score the bulk of the goals and clubs such as Barcelona and Real Madrid have been doing this for quite some time now and this season has been no different.

The front-three usually consists of one centre-forward and two wide forwards or wingers. With the influence of wingers becoming more and more, most of the top clubs have adopted the 4-3-3 formation.

So which attacking trios have been unstoppable this season? Here is a list of the deadliest attacking trios on the basis of their performances in both Europe and domestic leagues this season.

#5 Borussia Dortmund (Jadon Sancho, Paco Alcacer and Marco Reus)

It's been a while since Borussia Dortmund had such a good shape to their attack. The front-line of Jadon Sancho, Paco Alcacer and Marco Reus have formed a special connection between them. Sancho is one of the hottest sensations in world football right now, while Alcacer has transformed himself from Barcelona's dead-weight to one of the deadliest strikers in Europe at Dortmund. And then there is Reus, who has put his injury troubles behind and performing on a consistent basis.
