WATCH: Movers and Makers – Ronaldo, Hee-Chan, Ziyech and Willian ready for UEFA Champions League crunch time

Four accomplished UCL performers are primed to do everything they can for their clubs on a potentially momentous MD6

The sixth and final UEFA Champions League group-stage matchday is here, with spots for the Round of 16 still very much up for grabs.

The stakes are high, and the performance levels will have to be just as lofty as Europe’s finest battle to for a place in Monday’s knockout draw; in times like these, there aren’t many better to turn to than Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Juventus star’s European pedigree is unquestionable. He’s also completed 12 dribbles in Europe’s premier club competition this season, more than any other Juventus star. The Serie A champions are already assured of a last-16 spot; with qualification and top spot secured, will CR7 play with the shackles off and put Bayer Leverkusen to the sword?

Unlike Ronaldo and Juve, FC Salzburg must defeat Liverpool if they are to reach the last 16 of the UCL in their inaugural campaign. Teenage goalscoring sensation Erling Haaland has been hitting the headlines, but Hwang Hee-Chan has been the Austrian outfit’s creator-in-chief, laying on 14 chances from open play – more than any other player in the competition.

Another fine creator who will be looking to secure safe passage into the Round of 16 is Hakim Ziyech, who has impressed the football world with a string of fine displays for last year’s semi-finalists, Ajax.

The Morocco international has laid on four assists for the Dutch champions this season; no other player has more.

Finally, Chelsea playmaker Willian will be looking to carry on his fine incisive form as Frank Lampard’s side look to progress to the next phase of the tournament; the Brazilian has provided a key pass every 25 minutes for the Blues so far – will he improve an already very strong ratio against Lille on Tuesday?
