RANKED: 20 Most Important Players in the Champions League

20. Leonardo Bonucci – Juventus – Defender


The Italian center back is the heart and soul of the best defensive squad in the Champions League this season. In his six appearances this season, Juventus have conceded just two goals. Bonucci is averaging 2.3 clearances, 1.7 interceptions, and 1.7 tackles per game. His ability to distribute the ball out of the back is a big reason why Juventus are averaging 60% possession in their Champions League games. Bonucci and Juventus have a big task trying to stop the lethal front three of Barcelona in a rematch of the 2015 final.
