Bulldozing their way through opposition defenders, dashing forward and penetrating into the box at unbelievable pace as well as sending the ball into the back of the net in incredible fashion, these fantastic superstars deserve recognition for their efforts in the Champions League this season.

The UEFA Champions League is the best competition for every footballer to showcase their talents in Europe and Hoffenheim striker Andrej Kramaric deserves some respect for his incredible goalscoring exploits in the European tournament this season.

The Croatian International has had a prolific outing in his European campaign, finding the back of the net an incredible 5 times in 6 appearances for the Bundesliga side to put himself among the elite finishers of the competition so far.

However, despite his incredible exploits in front of goal in the Champions League this term, it is quite unfortunate that his club failed to progress into the knockout phase of the tournament after picking just three points in six games during the group stage. But the attacker does deserve the recognition by virtue of his impressive displays in the tournament.

Honorable Mention: Moussa Marega, Dusan Tadic, and Paulo Dybala has scored five goals each but played more minutes or provided fewer assists than the ones on this list.
