What better stage for players to showcase their skills than Europe’s most prestigious tournament?

UEFA has revealed the best dribblers from the 2023-24 Champions League’s group stage.

Napoli forward Khvicha Kvaratskhelia leads the dribbling charts with 46 completed attempts, two more than PSG’s Kylian Mbappe. The “Georgian Messi” has remained a key player for the Blues this season, registering ten goal contributions in 22 appearances.

AC Milan’s Rafael Leao sits third with 36 completed dribbles. However, he won’t be able to add to his tally as Milan have to continue their European campaign in the Europa League.

Next up is Copenhagen’s left winger, Elias Achouri, who is enjoying incredible form this season. The 24-year-old’s performances helped the Danish side to qualify for the knockout stage ahead of Galatasaray and Manchester United.

The list of the top five best dribblers in the Champions League ends with Ander Barrenetxea, who made 32 successful attempts in the group stage. The 21-year-old’s excellent performances for Real Sociedad have attracted interest from a number of elite sides this season. As he gears up to face PSG in the upcoming round, Barrenetxea has a golden opportunity to solidify his reputation as one of La Liga’s finest talents.

Here’s the complete list of the Champions League’s best dribblers in the group stage.
