Even though they were already through, PSG had a good time on Wednesday as they thrashed Galatasaray 5-0 at home, with Neymar (10) and Kylian Mbappe (9.5) earning a goal and two assists each and generally being nuisances all night.

They are joined in the forward line by Gabriel Jesus (10), who scored a superb hat-trick for Manchester City in their away win over Dinamo Zagreb.

Jesus' team-mate Phil Foden (9.8) starred in a rare start for Pep Guardiola as he assisted a goal for the Brazilian and also got one of his own later on, while fellow Citizen Benjamin Mendy (8.5) is slotted in at left-back.

The midfield three is completed by Thomas Partey (9.4), who had more touches than anyone else in the competition this week, and Pizzi (9.3) of Benfica.

Not a vintage week for defenders, but Mario Hermoso (7.6) and Ferro (7.8) both kept clean sheets for Atletico Madrid and Benfica respectively. Cesar Azpilicueta (8.2) is in at right-back after scoring for Chelsea.

In goal is Alisson (9) after his clean sheet and passing exploits from the back for Liverpool.
