After a magnificent and glorius Uefa Champions League triumph, Barcelona players dominated the recently released official Uefa Champions League Squad Of The Season.
Ten FC Barcelona players were included in the 2014/2015 Uefa Champions League Squad of the Season officially released by UEFA in their official website UEFA.com on Tuesday 9 June, 2015.
The list featured 18 players with Barcelona and Juventus having a combined 15 of these.
The biggest shock of the list is the inclusion of Chelsea’s right-back Branislav Ivanovis whilst no player from Bayern Munich made the list.
Out of Barcelona’s major starting XI in the 2014/2015 Champions League campaign, only Dani Alves missed out on the list with Ter-Stegen, Pique, Mascherano, Alba, Rakitic, Busquets, Iniesta, Suarez, Neymar and Messi all featuring.
Another talking point from the list is the exclusion of Juventus’ forward Carlos Tevez and only two Real Madrid players made the list.
