According to statistics, Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe are the two most sensational players in the Champions League in recent years. The performances of Champions League legends, Messi and Ronaldo have dropped since the start of 2019-2020 Champions League season.
Messi has grown to be an influential player in the lasts decade and it's no surprise to see him clinch series of Champions League titles. However, things haven't been really good for Barcelona in the last couple of years. Is it due to Messi's drop in form as age can't be cheated? I guess that's it! Barcelona has been really affected by Messi's drop in performance and it's no surprise to see the club struggle.
Cristiano Ronaldo is another force considered to be in the same level with Lionel Messi. The Portuguese forward is the most productive attacker in the history of the Champions League. With four Champions League titles in two different clubs, Ronaldo is definitely an important figure in the competition.
Kyllian Mbappe and Erling Haaland seem to have taken the central stage in the last two seasons. Last season, Mbappe scored five Champions League goals and already has five this season. The youngster has now scored ten goals in total since 2019-2020 season. Dortmund's star, Erling Haaland has provided 18 goals with eight of it coming this season.
It's so clear that Erling Haaland and Mbappe are the two brightest attackers in European football right now. With Ronaldo scoring 8 goals and Messi managing 7 since 2019/2020 season, it seems like their dominance in the CL is over.
