OPINION: The Top 5 Greatest Attacking Duos In Football Over The Last Decade

THOMAS MULLER AND ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI (Bayern Munich)

Bayern Munich have dominated the Bundesliga, particularly in the last decade. The Bavarian club has won the last nine league championships. Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller deserve a lot of credit for their success.

Both the Polish striker and the German forward have been outstanding. Both Lewandowski and Muller are known for their ability to score goals.

CRISTIANO RONALDO AND GONZALO HIGUAIN (Real Madrid)

During this time, the team has been graced by top players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Gonzalo Higuain alongside Karim Benzema, Mesut Ozil, and Angel Di Maria.

With these world-class players, Los Blancos had a lot of success. During this time, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gonzalo Higuain worked well together and were very effective in front of the goal.

The pair combined for 118 goals and 37 assists, with their best seasons coming in 2011-12 and 2012-13.

EDINSON CAVANI AND ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC (Paris Saint-Germain) 

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has played for a number of top European clubs, including Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). The French club signed him in 2012, and the following season, they signed Edinson Cavani.

Having two excellent strikers in the team meant only one thing for PSG: lots of goals. Ibrahimovic, being the incredible player he has always been, was very effective in front of goal. Cavani arrived in Ligue 1 after a standout season at Napoli. The partnership of Ibrahimovic and Cavani helped Paris Saint-Germain win four consecutive league titles. In the process, the duo scored 136 goals and assisted on 45 others. Both strikers made opposing defenders work hard with their incredible goal-scoring ability.

KARIM BENZEMA AND CRISTIANO RONALDO (Real Madrid) 

At Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema were another fantastic attacking duo. Both players were lethal in their own right. After the departure of Gonzalo Higuain in 2013, the partnership of Benzema and Ronaldo became extremely dangerous in front of goal.

Real Madrid have received numerous accolades in the last decade as a result of Benzema's clinical finishing and Ronaldo's exceptional ability to create and score at will. Los Blancos won four UEFA Champions League titles in five years thanks to their efforts. 

LUIS SUAREZ AND LIONEL MESSI (Barcelona)

Barcelona and Lionel Messi were a perfect match. That only got better when Liverpool's Luis Suarez joined the Blaugrana in 2014. Before moving to Spain, the Uruguayan was a huge asset for the Reds.

Suarez and Messi had incredible chemistry both on and off the field.The Uruguayan showed off his incredible goal-scoring ability, while Messi did what he does best. The trio of Messi, Neymar, and Suarez received more attention, but Messi and Suarez were more prolific in front of the goal.
