Real Madrid sensation among Champions League Player of the Week nominees

Four players have been nominated for the Champions League Player of the week, following the completion of the fourth round of matches. 

Tottenham Hotspur's Son Heung-min, Real Madrid's Rodrygo, Paris Saint-Germain's Keylor Navas and Dortmund's Achraf Hakimi will battle it out for the top prize. 


The young Brazilian's ability has never been in doubt, and he proved that when he grabbed a hat-trick against Galatasaray in a 6-0 demolishing on Wednesday night. This was Madrid's second group win, following their success in Turkey in a 1-0 win. 

There are two rounds of matches remaining, one among them a key match against Paris Saint-Germain, who beat them 3-0 in the opening round of matches. 

Son Heung-min

The South Korean continued with his good form for Spurs, days after he was involved in a nasty incident that left Everton's Andre Gomes nursing a broken leg. 

He scored a brace and assisted once as Spurs won 4-0 away to Red Star Belgrade in Serbia, and his stats were impressive. 

Achraf Hakimi

Hakimi starred for Borussia Dortmund as they came from two goals down to beat Inter Milan 3-2 on Tuesday night in a pulsating game. 

The defender scored a brace and put in a good performance overall, as they avenged the 2-0 loss they suffered in Antonio Conte's hands in match-day three. 

Keylor Navas

Navas made four crucial saves as Paris Saint-Germaine qualified for the knockout stage after their 1-0 win over Club Brugge.

The Parisians have won all their four matches so far in this campaign, and remain one of the favourites for the title. 

Navas, who was let go by Zinedine Zidane showed his class and largely made the difference for PSG.
