UEFA Champions League top performers, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have failed to make the 2020 first eleven team list of the best players in the competition this season.
It is the first time the Barcelona and Juventus superstars failed to make the final shortlist for their position.
The awards will recognise the top performers in each at the 2019-20 Champions League campaign, and both Messi and Ronaldo missed out on the final shortlist due to their devastating Champions League campaign.
Champions League champions, Bayern Munich dominated the 12-man list with seven players nominated across the four categories.
Robert Lewandowski is the favourite to win the UEFA’s best forward award will battle it out with PSG duo Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
David Alaba, Alphonso Davies, and Joshua Kimmich dominated the defender list while Thomas Muller and Liverpool-bound Thiago Alcantara are up against Manchester City star, Kevin De Bruyne for best midfielder.
While Bayern’s, Manuel Neuer is up for the best goalkeeper award, against PSG’s Keylor Navas and Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak.
