Joe Hart was among the players to impress this week. EMPICS Sport

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

Joe Hart, Juan Mata and other familiar faces are included.

JOE HART: Was superb as City earned a hard-fought 2-1 win away to Borussia Mönchengladbach. The England goalkeeper kept his side in the game at times with some fine stops.

Serge Aurier: An early goal was followed by a solid display and a clean sheet for the young PSG right-back.

Aymen Abdennour: Continued where he left off last season in the competition with Monaco, as a commanding defensive display helped Valencia earn a clean sheet against Lyon.

Maicon: His largely solid display at the back was capped by a superb match-winning header in Porto’s victory over Chelsea.

David Luiz: One of his more reliable performances, the defender scored the second goal and held firm at the back, as PSG won a potentially tricky tie away to Shakhtar Donetsk.

Esteban Cambiasso: After impressing with Leicester last year, Cambiasso appears to be continuing his Indian Summer with Olympiakos, as he put in a strong display in midfield, consequently playing a pivotal role in the Greek team’s 3-2 win over Arsenal.

Thiago Alcanatra: Bayern missed the youngster through injury for over a year, but Thiago is now back, and showed the German side what they have been missing, as he dictated the play in their comfortable win over Dinamo Zagreb.

Juan Mata: Took his penalty well and laid on a glorious assist for United’s winner against Wolfsburg. The Spanish international was the key figure in attack for Louis van Gaal’s side.

Douglas Costa: Capped a superb start to this season, in which he has risen to the top of the assists table, with another influential display that included a goal in Bayern’s emphatic victory.

Cristiano Ronaldo: Another bravura showing saw Ronaldo score twice in Real’s 2-0 win in Malmo to equal Raul’s all-time goals record for Real Madrid.

Robert Lewandowski: The striker is in ominously good form ahead of the Poland-Ireland match, as evidenced by his hat-trick in Bayern’s 5-0 defeat of Dinamo Zagreb.
