Robert Lewandowski (10) was in devastating form for Bayern as the German champions destroyed Red Star 6-0, as he scored four out of the six goals on the night. He is joined in a star-studded forward line by Lionel Messi (10), who scored two, assisted another, and completed four more dribbles than anyone else in the Champions League this week, and Karim Benzema (9.6), who bagged two for Real Madrid against PSG.

The Bayern striker is joined by team-mates Leon Goretzka (9.1), who scored the opening goal, as well as Thiago Alcantara (9) and Benjamin Pavard (8.7).

Magomed Ozdoev (9.1) completes the midfield after starring for Zenit versus Lyon, scoring the second goal as well as making 11 ball recoveries, five interceptions, and seven clearances,

Marcelo (8.9) was back to his best for Real Madrid as he assisted Benzema's second with a lovely cross.

Two goalscoring centre-halves make up the defence as Dejan Lovren (8.3) netted the vital equaliser for Liverpool versus Napoli, while Sven Bender (8.7) scored one of the goals of the night with a beautiful volley inside the box for Leverkusen against Lokomotiv Moscow.

PSG Have Keylor Navas (8.8) to thank for keeping them in contention against Real Madrid long enough to get back on level terms, as he made an incredible 10 saves to deny his former team.
