UEFA Champions League

Opinion: My UEFA Champions League Team Of The Week - Round 3

GOALKEEPER

Ivo Grbic (GK) - LOSC Lille

Grbic made six saves against Sevilla to ensure the game ended 0-0. No goalkeeper made more saves than the Croatian.

DEFENDERS

Jordi Alba (LB) - Barcelona

Alba won the man of the match award in Barca's 1-0 win over Dynamo Kyiv. He provided the assist for the goal and helped with eight ball recoveries.

Gerard Pique (CB) - Barcelona

Pique scored Barcelona's lone goal, made ten ball recoveries, and ensured they ended the game without conceding a goal.

Sebastian Coates (CB) - Sporting CP

Coates scored two of Sporting's goals as they defeated Besiktas 4-1 away from home.

Joao Cancelo (RB) - Manchester City

Cancelo won the player of the match award in the game against Club Brugge. The right-back scored one of City's five goals and made seven ball recoveries.

MIDFIELDERS

Daley Blind (DM) - Ajax

Blind played in defense for Ajax, but his versatility makes him also suitable for the defensive-midfield role. He scored a goal, assisted another, kept a clean sheet, and had nine balls recovered. He is the best player of this week.

Jorginho (DM) - Chelsea

Jorginho scored two penalties in Chelsea's 4-0 thrashing of Malmo.

Vinicius Junior (LW) - Real Madrid

Vinicius Junior was very impressive in Real Madrid's 5-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk. The Brazilian scored two goals and provided an assist.

Leroy Sané (AM) - Bayern Munich

For the second week, Sane makes this team consecutively. Sane was involved in three goals in Bayern's 4-0 away win over Benfica, scoring two goals and assisting another. Sane is arguably the current best player of the tournament.

Riyad Mahrez (RW) - Manchester City

Mahrez slightly edged Mohamed Salah to seal this spot. He scored two goals in Man City's 5-1 win over Club Brugge.

FORWARDS

Noah Okafor (FW) - RB Salzburg

Okafor is primarily a left-winger who can operate as a striker. The Swiss-Nigerian scored two goals in Salzburg's 3-1 win over Wolfsburg to top the group G table.

FORMATION 4-2-3-1
