Real Madrid dominate UEFA fans' team of 2017; PSG's Neymar misses out

De Bruyne lines up in midfield alongside Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Hazard while up front, unsurprisingly, are Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. If so, then the UEFA.com Fans' Team of the Year 2017 is what really counts with a record (and remarkable) 8.77 million votes cast, an increase of 1.6 million over 2016.

The team included five Real Madrid players, two Juventus players and one player from Barcelona, Chelsea, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain each.

As is the norm, Real Madrid dominate the side - with Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Cristiano Ronaldo all included. Sergio Ramos received the most votes with 588,315.

Instead, Eden Hazard of Chelsea is the third member of an attacking trident in a team dominated by Real Madrid stars after Zinedine Zidane's men retained the Champions League and beat Barca to winning LaLiga a year ago.

Barcelona and Italian champions Juventus had a total of 5 nominees each, while Atletico Madrid and Manchester United have 4 players in the Team of the Year shortlist.

However, the Spurs and England forward was absent from the 2017 Team of the Year, voted for by football fans and tallied by UEFA.

There is no place for PSG stars Neymar or Kylian Mbappe, despite their stunning individual form in 2017.
