Defender: Gabriel Paulista with 40% of the votes

Atletico Madrid, Champions League, Bayer Leverkusen

Five talking points from Bayer Leverkusen 2-1 Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid paid a huge price for a dreadful performance by losing 2-1 to Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League.

The Brazilian defender from Valencia is currently one of the best players that the Spanish club has on the roster.

We thought this award would definitely go to a Chelsea player but the fans loved the Brazilian’s performances much better.

In fact, Gabriel did finish the season on a high note after beating FC Barcelona in the Copa del Rey final.

Paulista delivered a gorgeous assist during that final, which perfectly describes the type of centre-back he is.

It’s a shame he didn’t make it to the Copa America squad for the summer, he would’ve made a massive difference on the team.
