Every now and then, the stars align and there is a weekend packed full of thrilling fixtures across Europe.
The Premier League had the north London derby between Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal. La Liga had El Clásico between Real Madrid and Barcelona. Serie A had the Rome derby between Lazio and Roma and Napoli hosting Juventus. And the Primeira Liga had the O Clássico between Porto and Benfica.
Yet away from the high profile games, away from the focus of the television audiences, several players were producing fine performances of their own and did enough to make it into our team of the weekend.
In the video above, we have picked out our standout XI from the weekend’s games. let us know if you agree with those selected by tweeting us @FB_Whispers.
