A player has beaten Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to the best player in Europe this season base on statistics.
Paris Saint-Germain attacker Neymar has surpassed the Juventus and Barcelona attackers as the best player in Europe base on statistics.
The Portuguese attacker and the Argentine star have been the two best players over the decade and share 11 Ballon d'Or in between them among other individual wards but base on current stats (which cover their performances in the league and not in domestic or European cup competitions) compiled by WhoScored that listed the 20 best players in Europe this campaign, Neymar statistically beat both Messi and Ronaldo to earn the no. 1 spot in ratings.
Messi and Ronaldo are gradually slowing down and cannot match the high standard they set a decade ago, but nevertheless they are still regarded as the best player in this generation.
