The 2018-19 season of the UEFA Champions League brought about some thrills, spills and magic. Detailed here are some of the best selection of tricks the stars of the game showcased last season:

A lovely turn by Marco Asensio around three defenders to meet Isco's pass inside the box and a no-turn shot at goal in Real Madrid's group game against Roma or Viktoria Plzen's Michael Krmencík moving forward with a dummy couldn't produce goals but the skills on show were enough to get one off their seat.

In Tottenham's 2-4 defeat against Barcelona, the way Lucas Moura's delicate touch to break past Gerard Pique while in the return tie it was Ousmane Dembele storming past Kyle Walker-Peters after robbing the youngster on the halfway line, before evading a Harry Winks tackle and slotting past Hugo Lloris.

Mix skill with pace and you have Raheem Sterling breezing past two markers against Shakhtar Donestk. You also have Arjen Robben cutting his way through a bunch of Benfica defenders, delaying his shot and then smashing it into the near post.

Antoine Griezmann sliced the ball with the outside of his left foot to double Atletico Madrid's lead against Monaco but you would first have to give credit to Angel Correa for breaking open the opponents' backline.

There was no stopping Neymar as the Brazilian collected Kylian Mbappe's reverse pass to sprint into the box before cutting into the centre and, showing outstanding patience to wait out a pair of defenders and the goalkeeper, chipped in a delicate finish from 10 yards in PSG's 6-1 win over Crvena Zveda.

Just as Lucas Moura was able to latch on to the loose ball in the Ajax box and, on the spin, unleashed a pin-point finish into the bottom-left corner.
