The Guardian compiled its list of the top players in the world and the Frauen were represented well. Below are the four Bayern Munich players rated by The Guardian, along with the breakdown for each player.

  • No.38 Sara Däbritz, Bayern Munich, Midfielder (Germany)

Däbritz was frustrated by injuries in 2017, but the 23-year-old showed why she is still regarded as one of Europe’s most promising players this time around. The midfielder scored eight goals in the second half of the 2017-18 season, including a beauty against Hoffenheim and a hat-trick against Werder Bremen. A further four goals in 2018-19 have shown her continued impact on the Bayern team and she is once again a regular for Germany, scoring in an exciting 3-2 friendly win over Canada in the summer.

  • No.43: Lina Magull, Bayern Munich, Midfielder (Germany)

Magull’s form in the 2017-18 season, which included a hat-trick against Cologne early this year, earned her a move from Freiburg to Bayern Munich in time for the current campaign. She went on to score three goals in her opening two matches for Bayern, but her assist tally for the year is just as impressive as her goal record. The 24-year-old has also solidified her role as a key player for Germany, proving her worth as a creative force but also scoring four goals as the team qualified for the 2019 World Cup.

  • No. 84: Fridolina Rolfö, Bayern Munich, Forward (Sweden)

Rolfö’s peak years are approaching and, accordingly, her form augurs well for the future. Her league tally in 2018 stretches into double figures, with several more assists, and she has been one of Bayern Munich’s key performers. For Sweden, she began her year with a goal against Canada at the Algarve Cup and followed that with a double against Russia in the World Cup qualifiers. She has not been involved too much since but, with a little more consistency, the feeling is that Rolfö could achieve great things in 2019.

  • No. 93: Melanie Behringer, Bayern Munich, Midfielder (Germany)

The classy German, listed in our top three just two years ago before injury wiped her out in 2017, sneaks back in after a decent year. The 33-year-old was a reliable leader as Bayern tried to chase down a quality Wolfsburg side in both league and cup and her performances showed glimpses of the qualities she will always be remembered for. Sadly another knee injury curtailed her year early but there remains hope that she will return fit and firing next year.

Overall, here is how the list shook out:

Top 10

1. Pernille Harder - Wolfsburg

2. Sam Kerr - Perth Glory

3. Ada Hegerberg - Lyon

4. Lucy Bronze - Lyon

5. Eugenie Le Sommer - Lyon

6. Amandine Henry - Lyon

7. Alex Morgan - Orlando Pride

8. Wendie Renard - Lyon

9. Lieke Martens - Barcelona

19. Alexandra Popp - Wolfsburg
