Following impressive performances at the weekend, eleven-time joint Ballon d’Or winners Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi lead round 18 of My11’s team of the week. We have chosen a 3-4-3 formation.
| Since the start of the 2020/2021 season, keeping a clean sheet has been difficult for Barcelona, and in their 4-0 thumping of Granada, the German shot-stopper made sure he kept a clean sheet, making a total of 4 saves in the encounter.
Achraf Hakimi | The Moroccan is enjoying his new life in Italy, and has been consistent in My11’s team of the week, and this weekend, the former Real Madrid man put up another impressive performance, scoring a beautiful curler with his weak foot from outside the box in Inter’s 2-2 draw away to AS Roma.
Danilo | Another ex-Real Madrid defender showed himself at the weekend, scoring the first goal in Juventus 3-1 win over Sassuolo, before providing an assist for Cristiano Ronaldo late in the game.
Rafael Toloi | The Brazilian had a good game in Atalanta’s 4-1 away victory over Benevento, winning tackles, interceptions, and clearances. He also got his name on the score sheet with the third goal in the encounter.
Daniel Parejo | The Spaniard again showed why he is one of the best midfielders in La Liga with another masterclass. He had a brilliant midfield control in Villarreal’s 4-0 away win against Celta Vigo. He also scored a goal and provided an assist.
Marcelo Brozovic | Inter Milan played out a two-all draw against Roma in Rome, and one man created both goals for the away side, his name is Brozovic. The Croatian sent in a beautiful cross from the corner kick for the first goal and laid a lovely ball for the second goal.
Tiemoue Bakayoko | The resurgent Frenchman had a very good game as Napoli beat Udinese 2-1 away from home. Bakayoko scored the winning goal in the 90th minute to help Victor Osimhen’s team go back to Naples with all 3 points.
Lionel Messi | The little genius seems to be back in form, scoring 4 goals in his last 2 games. In Barcelona's 4-0 thrashing of Granada, Messi had a “Messi-class” game. He scored his trademark goal, a beautiful curler, and a cheeky freekick a few minutes before the break.
Youssef En-Nesyri | The Moroccan stood out in the intense encounter between Sevilla and Real Sociedad, which ended 3-2 for the Seville side. En-Nesyri scored a hat trick to help the Europa League winner pick up all 3 points.
Antoine Griezmann | The Frenchman played arguably his best match for the Catalan giant as he put up an excellent shift. Positioning himself to score the first goal in the encounter, before providing an assist for Messi. Griezmann then scored a brace later in the game to round off his brilliant performance.
Cristiano Ronaldo | The Portuguese is the definition of old wine, and in Juventus’ win over Sassuolo, he showed himself again. The 35-year-old ran half the field to score his 15th league goal of the season in 13 games and became the first player to score at least 15 league goals in 15 consecutive seasons in Europe's top 5 league.
Jagoba Arrasate | The Spanish gaffer led his team to pick up a point against Real Madrid against all odds. Osasuna sit 19th on the log, but he set up his side to stop the firepower of the Blancos and they earned a deserved draw. He is our manager of the week.
