As European football returns, a number of FIFA 17 Rising Stars are in the running for league titles. Which of them will go on to claim silverware?

Leagues all over Europe are racing towards thrilling concussions as hopefuls close in on domestic titles.

In several countries, the race is tight. In others, there are breakaway leaders. But in all are emerging talents of the continental game included in Goal's Top 50 Rising Stars of FUT.

Headlining the list is Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe. The teenage sensation has been linked with every elite club in Europe and is driving the principality outfit towards what would be their first league title since 2000.

Monaco sit three points clear of Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1, where Mbappe has scored 12 league goals and recorded five assists in just 22 appearances. 

PSV’s Oleksandr Zinchenko, meanwhile, is hoping to inspire a late charge to Eredivisie glory in the Netherlands. 

The precocious 20-year-old attacking midfielder has made 11 league appearances this campaign and his side have won nine of their last 10 matches as they attempt to close the eight-point gap to leaders Feyenoord.

Things are far tighter in Portugal, however, where two more of Goal's Top 50 Rising Stars of FUT are facing off in a fierce battle for supremacy between Porto and Benfica. 

The Primeira Liga giants are separated by just one point, with Jesus Corona and Franco Cervi playing crucial roles for each side.

Mexico international Corona, 24, has tallied three goals and three assists in 22 league appearances for the men from the Estadio do Dragao. 

On the other side of the divide, Cervi, a 22-year-old attacking midfielder, has scored once and assisted twice across 19 showings in what has been a breakout season for the Argentine.

While things still hang in the balance in Portugal, matters look almost settled for Daniele Rugani in Italy.
