There is hardly a more magical sight in soccer than a player leaving defenders in his wake as he dances his way into the penalty area. From Diego Maradona to Lionel Messi, dribbling artists have always held a special place in soccer folklore, for they possess the gift of making the game seem divine, even to non-believers.

Some of the best dribblers of the century, Messi, Karim Benzema, Neymar, and Cristiano Ronaldo, have all left Europe over the last year, but the continent is not devoid of players with fancy footwork. According to the data from The Punters Page, here are the five players who have completed the most dribbles in the top five European Leagues this season:
