YOU have direct influence on who appears in each Top Five so be sure to rate each weekend.
DOUGLAS COSTA (BAYERN MUNICH) – 6.78
Costa achieved 114 touches, 7 shots, 5 chances created, and 9 dribbles and alongside Arturo Vidal, was almost entirely responsible for Bayern’s offensive play.

JEROEN ZOET (PSV) – 6.64
Given the goalkeeper’s contributions over two legs, the Dutchman did not deserve to finish on the losing side.
Zoet denied Atlético forward Antoine Griezmann on a number of occasions while tippeing a Fernando Torres effort onto the post in extra-time. If it wasn’t for Zoet the game would never have gone as far as penalties.
THIAGO SILVA (PSG) – 6.61
Thiago Silva had a busy night dealing with the irrepressive Diego Costa and made a good job of containing his former international colleague.
Silva did make one slip-up which allowed Costa to score but other than that the PSG skipper’s full-blooded apporach to the match helped snuff out Chelsea attacks on several occasions.
THIAGO MOTTA (PSG) – 6.60
The former Italy international wound back the years to produce a vitage display and was the catalyst for most of PSG’s attacks.
Motta had an important defensive role to play, keeping Cesc Fabregas under wraps, and despite giving away the odd foul proved he was not shy of doing the dirty work.

YEVHEN KHACHERIDI (DYNAMO KIEV) – 6.50
One of the only Dynamo Kiev players to emerge from lifeless draw which saw them knocked out of the Champions League against Manchester City was the hustling defending defender.
Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and Jesus Navas were all bundled off the ball or into touch at one point or another by the energetic Khacheridi and there is no doubt that City would have had a few more goals if it were not for his interventions.
