Do you agree with our Champions League team of the week?

Neymar and a fair few Bayern Munich players make the cut.

Jan Oblak (Atletico): He may have ended up on the losing team, but Oblak was blameless for the goal, and kept his side in the match with some superb saves at 0-0.

Dani Alves (Barcelona): As is often the case, Alves virtually played as a right winger owing to Barca’s dominance in possession, having a hand in the Catalan side’s second goal, while also performing adequately at the back when necessary.

Jerome Boateng (Bayern Munich): Scored the all-important second goal for Bayern and looked solid in defence throughout.

Andrea Barzagli (Juventus): Made some important interceptions as the Juventus defence stood firm to see the Italians safely into the semi-finals for the first time since 2003.

Aymen Abdennour (Monaco): A huge part of Monaco’s success in the competition, Abdennour looked imperious again as his side took on Juve, and he could hardly be blamed for their failures in attack.

Anders Iniesta (Barcelona): Laid on a glorious assist for Barcelona’s opening goal and generally looked very assured in the 45 minutes he spent on the field.

Geoffrey Kondogbia (Monaco): Was easily one of his team’s best players as he gave a commanding midfield display, and was unlucky not to win a penalty to boot.

Thiago Alcântara (Bayern Munich): Scored the first goal that put Bayern on their way to an emphatic win and consolidated his reputation as one of Europe’s top youngsters with an intelligent performance in midfield.

Neymar (Barcelona): Emphasised his class and growing maturity with two clinical finishes that made the difference in the Barca-PSG game.

Thomas Müller (Bayern Munich): Was a tad fortunate with his deflected goal, but Müller also contributed two excellent assists for Lewandowski in a highly influential display.

Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich): Scored a well-taken brace and invariably posed a big threat in attack.
