I’ve provided a table of stats with a mixture of stats related to qualification, their club form and some bookies odds on teams winning the Groups to rank the players.


Grp W odds – This is an amalgamation of the odds to win each game within the Group. It is to give an indication of the fixture difficulty for each team within their Group.   The lower the odds the better obviously.  They are of over a week ago before distorted by betting patterns.

A in Q – Appearances in qualifying matches

Gls in Q – Goals in qualifying matches

Club starts and sub – The starts in League matches only for the 17/18 season for their clubs plus sub appearances.

Goals and assists – The Goals in those league matches only.

Mins G/A – The minutes it took in League for a goal or assist to happen.
