The 2020/2021 UEFA Women’s Champions League positional award shortlists have been announced, with winners to be named in Istanbul on August 26.

Barcelona produced 12 of the nominees, including all three forwards and two of the midfielders.

Chelsea who lost to Barcelona in the 2020/2021 final have three shortlisted players, while the other two nominees who were with Paris Saint-Germain last season are now at new clubs now – Christiane Endler (Lyon) and Irene Paredes (Barcelona).

According to UEFA, the players were “selected by a jury composed of the coaches of the clubs that participated in the 2020/21 UEFA Women’s Champions League round of 16. Twenty journalists specialising in women’s football and selected by the ESM group were also part of the jury.

“Coaches and journalists were requested to select a shortlist of three players by allocating respectively five points, three points and one point to each of them. The final result was based on the total number of votes cast by the coaches and the journalists.

“The coaches were not allowed to vote for players from their own team.”
