There are many players currently having great campaigns for their clubs in both Champions League and in domestic play.
Clearly, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are two perfect examples.
Then there are players who have not been as excellent as of late.
It is difficult to be too critical of these teams, as there has been success in terms of overall wins against losses for the remaining eight. Simply put, mostly wins and very few losses.
It should make for some appetizing football.
Every player will have a poor performance on occasion. Some more than others, of course. Timing is everything, so for the players mentioned in this list, hopefully they can step their game up as the most important moments of the season await.
The following list looks at how the teams have done in their last six games or in the Champions League. It picks out one poor performer for each side and explains why he was chosen.
