The 2017/18 season has been a memorable one for many players across Europe, and there were many instances of individual brilliance from stars who enjoyed breakthrough campaigns.

As for others, such as Messi and Neymar, supporters saw more of the same, and the same could be said of Thomas Muller, who was back to his best in the Bundesliga.

While it was Messi who won Europe's Golden Shoe for his 34 league strikes, Lazio’s Luis Alberto, the Citizens' Kevin De Bruyne and Bayern Munich's Muller assisted 16 strikes each, making them the joint leading playmakers across the continent's top five leagues.

Young City duo Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane both set up 15 strikes each in the Premier League this season, while the same tally was achieved by Napoli's Jose Callejon and Paris Saint-Germain’s Neymar.

The Brazilian was also in fine form in front of goal, but had his season cut short due to a nasty injury he picked up in March.

Marseille star Dimitri Payet, who will sadly miss the 2018 FIFA World Cup through injury, set up 14 goals in France's Ligue 1 this season.

Juventus' tricky Brazilian Douglas Costa finished the season with 13 Serie A assists this past campaign, while Lyon winger Memphis Depay and Augsburg's Philipp Max each got the same amount.
