Pick 'Em: Champions League Team of the Week as Man Utd Stun Juventus and Kane Saves Spurs

Wow, what a few days of football!


Manchester United stole the headlines on Wednesday night with a late show at Juventus, winning 2-1 having fallen behind, while there were also wins for Real Madrid, Roma, Bayern Munich and Manchester City.


Harry Kane saved Tottenham on Tuesday with two late goals, while Atletico Madrid shut down a free scoring Borussia Dortmund.


With all that in mind, here's 90min's official Champions League Team of the Week.

1. GK: Samir Handanovic

In what is probably the standout moment of his career, Handanovic has been included in 90min's Champions League Team of the Week for the second time in a row.


He claimed he should have saved Malcom's strike, but in truth the former Slovenia international kept Inter in the game and without his heroics they wouldn't have escaped from their tie with Barcelona with a point.

2. RB: Maxi Pereira

It wasn't a chaotic week for superb right back performances, but Maxi Pereira put in a good shift during Porto's 4-1 win against Lokomotiv Moscow.


The 34-year-old made four tackles, the most in his team, and completed 37 passes during the rout. Not incredible, but solid enough to warrant inclusion here.

3. CB: Victor Lindelof

Remember Manchester United's game against Huddersfield last season where Lindelof cocked up and cost the Red Devils a goal with some silly positioning? Well, he looked like a totally different player against Juventus on Wednesday.


The Sweden international read the game well and essentially made Paulo Dybala, one of the best forwards in the world, anonymous, even if the Argentine did smack the bar.

4. CB: Kalidou Koulibaly

Have you seen Koulibaly's tackle on Kylian Mbappe during Napoli's 1-1 draw with Paris Saint-Germain? You need to watch it. Here. Click. Go crazy. It really is Bobby Moore-esque.


Napoli are top of Group C, having won once and drawn three times, and their trip to Anfield will be absolutely massive in determining which team could exit the competition and drop into the Europa League.

5. LB: Filipe Luis

Borussia Dortmund are currently one of the most exciting attacking teams in Europe, so keeping a clean sheet against the Bundesliga leaders must be the stuff of dreams, right?


Not if you're Atletico Madrid. Diego Simeone's side feast on clean sheets pretty much every week and they had little issue in keeping Marco Reus and co quiet on Tuesday. Luis was particularly impressive, grabbing the assist for Saul Niguez's first half effort.

6. RM: Riyad Mahrez

Imagine being a Manchester City fan. Your team has just pumped Southampton 6-1, and then they go and smash Shakhtar Donetsk, a relatively well known and nuggety force in Europe, by the same amount of goals.


Gabriel Jesus grabbed a hat trick but Mahrez helped open the floodgates with some wonderfully tricky wing play on the right before crossing for David Silva's opener. He later got on the scoresheet with a smart half volley and assisted Jesus' third in the 91st minute.

7. CM: Toni Kroos

Germany international Kroos hasn't been great this season but he was on top form against Viktoria Plzen, who gave him all the time and space he needed to ensure Real Madrid won their game on Wednesday night.


Kroos grabbed two assists in the space of four minutes as Los Blancos surged into a three goal lead by half-time, and displayed his undisputed class with a nonchalant chip for his side's fifth strike.

8. CM: Tanguy Ndombele

It's tricky to have any idea what to make of Lyon. They beat Manchester City and have now drawn their next three Champions League games.


One positive for the Ligue 1 side during the 2-2 draw with Hoffenheim was the performance of Ndombele, who grabbed a goal and made the most accurate passes of any player on the pitch with 56.

9. LM: Gareth Bale

There aren't many things quite as breathtaking as watching an in form Gareth Bale, so naturally his display against Plzen was awesome to witness.


The Welshman assisted Karim Benzema, who netted a brace, before tucking home his goal in the 40th minute. It was exactly the same quality as his overhead kick in the final earlier this year, but they all count.

10. ST: Milan Pavkov

Red Star Belgrade shocked the footballing world when they handed Liverpool their third defeat of the season thanks to Pavkov, who netted a double including an absolute screamer of a second.


While it remains unlikely that Red Star will finish anywhere other than bottom of Group C, another shock win over either Napoli or Paris Saint-Germain would really put the cat among the pigeons.

11. ST: Harry Kane

With Tottenham staring down the barrel of an early Champions League elimination, their talisman stepped up, as he so often does, to bail them out of trouble.


Kane's two goals showed why the England international is rated among the best strikers in the world, showcasing the poacher's instincts that have helped him thrive in recent seasons. If Tottenham somehow qualify for the knockout stages, they'll have one man to thank.
