UEFA unveiled the 2023/24 Champions League Team of the Season on Monday.

The team is dominated by Dortmund and champions Real Madrid.

UEFA's Technical Observer panel selected the team based on performances in the 2023/24 UEFA Champions League.

Mats Hummels, Ian Maatsen, Marcel Sabitzer, and goalkeeper Gregor Kobel are Borussia players who make the Team of the Year.

Jude Bellingham, named the tournament’s Young Player of the Year, leads a quartet of Real Madrid players featuring final matchwinner Dani Carvajal, Antonio Rudiger and Player of the Year Vinicius Jr.

Bayern Munich striker Harry Kane makes the cut after eight goals in 12 games to finish as joint-top scorer alongside Kylian Mbappe. However, the Paris Saint-Germain forward misses out on a place in the XI.

Manchester City’s Phil Foden completes the attack with PSG’s Vitinha in midfield, meaning the likes of Bukayo Saka, Erling Haaland, Porto winger Galeno, Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann and Real Sociedad’s Mikel Merino all miss out despite strong campaigns.

Fede Valverde’s powerful volley against Man City in the quarter-finals has also been named the Champions League Goal of the Season.

Champions League 2023-24 Team of the Year: Kobel; Carvajal, Rudiger, Hummels, Maatsen; Vitinha, Sabitzer; Foden, Bellingham, Vinicius Jr; Kane
