THE Champions League is arguably the second-most important competition in the world of Dream Team.
Premier League fixtures make up the bread and butter of our beloved fantasy game but the points earned in the European Cup go a long way to deciding Mini Leagues worldwide.
With that in mind, let's take a glance at which players have scored the most points in the Champions League so far this season ahead of the next round of fixtures.

MOST POINTS IN CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2023/24
- Gabriel Jesus (£5.2m) – 34 pts
- Julian Alvarez (£4.6m) – 33 pts
- Erling Haaland (£7.6m) – 28 pts
- Rasmus Hojlund (£3.7m) – 24 pts
- Jeremy Doku (£3.9m) – 24 pts
- Rodri (£4.1m) – 21 pts
- Martin Odegaard (£4.9m) – 21 pts
- Dan Burn (£3.9m) – 19 pt
Arsenal's No9 leads the way having scored in all three of his side's European games this campaign.
The Brazilian forward was particularly good against Sevilla last time out, earning 14 points in a 2-1 win, but he's unlikely to keep hold of top spot having picked up another unfortunate injury.
Still, Dream Team bosses should note that Jesus has found returns easy to come by in midweek when fit.
It's no surprise to see Manchester City's top goalscorers on the podium as Pep Guardiola's side have had the most success in the Champions League of the four English teams this term.
