The UEFA Champions League is reaching it’s conclusion with the second leg of the semi-finals set to begin. It’s been another rollercoaster ride with plenty of highs and lows for what are the best sides in Europe. Real Madrid are once again the bookies favourite to go all the way and win what would be an unprecedented third straight title – an achievement no side has done in the Champions League era. They’re looking likely to be joined in Kiev next month by Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool who’ve been one of the surprise packages of the tournament, steamrollering their way through with their prolific forward line.
The Champions League is the most prestigious club honour available to any player and doing well in the competition can earn you a place in the UEFA Team of the Year. This is built up of eleven elite performers who’ve carried their side to success, meaning you have to be right at the top of your game to get in there. Over the years there’s been some massive names to make it into the end of year XI and it’s going to be interesting to see who makes the cut this time around.We’ve been looking at previous members of the UEFA Team of the Year and put together a quiz which will really test your European knowledge. There’s 88 answers to guess in total and we’ve give you 7 minutes to name as many as possible – so no excuses. These players are some of the biggest names in Europe so anything under 80% is a pretty poor effort!
