Champions League Team of the Week

The Champions League returned with a bang this week, in fact was it a bang, or was it a nuclear explosion? Whatever it was, it was incredible!

With the second leg fixtures to come in less than a weeks time, here are the standout performers from the first leg of the quarter finals.

Keylor Navas – Real Madrid

Not a great deal to do, saving both shots that came his way.

Trent Alexander-Arnold – Liverpool

Excellent at the back, stopping Man City from scoring that vital away goal with 10 clearances, 7 blocks and 4 tackles.

Gerard Pique – Barcelona

Solid for Barcelona and even grabbed a crucial goal to make it 3-0 and take the tie away from Roma.

Virgil van Dijk – Liverpool

Really has strengthened Liverpool’s defence, and was an impenetrable wall for the Reds against Man City.

Marcelo – Real Madrid

One of the best attacking left backs in the world grabbed his latest goal in Real Madrid’s demolition of Juventus

Toni Kroos – Real Madrid

The conductor for Real Madrid, and while he didn’t score or assist, he was a creative force for Los Blancos.

Ivan Rakitic – Barcelona

Covered every blade of grass in the midfield for Barcelona, and even hit the woodwork.

Thiago – Bayern Munich

Like Rakitic, was everywhere in midfield for Bayern, and even bagged a goal for the Bavarian side.

Mohamed Salah – Liverpool

His form continues, grabbing a goal and an assist as Liverpool put Manchester City to the sword.

Cristiano Ronaldo – Real Madrid

Simply incredible! Involved in all three Real Madrid, scoring two goals including an absolute screamer, and an assist, and even applauded by Juventus fans.

Sadio Mane – Liverpool

A good performance down the left from Mane, grabbing Liverpool’s third goal to take the game away from Man City.
