    Using IMScouting's unique report generator, I have calculated which attackers have been the best value in terms of minutes played so far in this season's Champions League.

    Weighing up the number of goals and assists contributed with the number of minutes played in the competition so far, I've tried to find out who is the most effective player in the competition so far this term. Messi, Eto'o, Ozil, Crouch are some of the names you can find here.
