DR) Dani Alves – Barcelona
The brilliant Brazilian right-back has been at his dynamic and attacking best this season for La Liga’s table toppers. He’s scored two, assisted two more, and been a constant menace up Barcelona’s right flank. He’s a solid passer (averaging 67 per match) but is also strong and confident defensively (making 3.6 tackles every game). With Alves now in his thirties, the Catalan giants will have a very tough job replacing him when the time eventually comes.
