Real Madrid dominated the 2016/17 Champions League positional prizes, winning three of the four categories. Ramos, Modric and Cristiano Ronaldo were selected as the best defender, midfielder and forward, respectively. The Real Madrid captain beat Bonucci and his teammate Marcelo, while in the midfield positions Modric beat two other Real Madrid players: Kroos and Casemiro.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who was the top scorer in last season’s Champions League, was chosen ahead of Dybala and Messi. The best goalkeeper award went to Buffon.
