Lionel Messi - the best striker

Lionel Messi - the best striker

Lionel Messi is by far the best striker in the world in 2015, while Cristiano Ronaldo is only 29, this is the result of the research of the International Centre for Sports Studies.

CIES included in their research players from Primera, Bundesliga, Premier League, League 1 and Serie A.

In order to be on this list, players should've played at least 66 percent of the total number of minutes.

The six key elements are shots on a goal, created opportunities, dribbling, successful passes, steals and jamming attacks opponents.
This fantastic guy from Argentina scored 17 goals in a total of 12 matches played since the New Year.

On the other hand, Ronaldo is currently on the 29th place on the list, because in the last 11 games, his game wasn't at its best, but his is still better than his Real Madrid team mate, Gareth Bale who is 35th, and Karim Benzema who is in the 37th position.

On the list of the best strikers behind Messi who has a maximum of 100 points are : Arjen Robben (Bayern Munich) with 92, Bas Dost (Wolfsburg) with 77, Luis Suarez (Barcelona) with 71 and Diego Costa (Chelsea) with 61 points. Complete list Harry Kane (Tottenham), Marco Reus (Borussia Dortmund), Lucas Barrios (Montpellier), Pierre-Emenike Obamejang (Borussia Dortmund), Christoph Mandan (Guingamp), Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid), Neymar (Barcelona), Olivier Giroud (Arsenal), Carlos Bacca (Sevilla), Eder Martins (Sampdoria).

Unfortunately you cannot find any Liverpool player among the best 15th players, even though they've lost only three times in the last twenty matches.
