Gazzetta’s European Team of the Week
It was very hard to look beyond Philippe Coutinho as the Brazilian inspired Liverpool to a thumping 4-1 win over Manchester City. If anyone was close to being as good as Coutinho in European team of the week, then it was Ajax’s Davy Klaassen, who starred with 2 goals in an impressive 5-1 win over Cambuur.
Meanwhile in attack, Luis Suarez was the top performer as the Uruguayan forward netted 2 goals against Real Madrid. His goals allowed Barcelona to win the El Clasico with a great deal of ease. If Suarez’s goals were crucial then Romelu Lukaku’s brace against Aston Villa was equally impressive. The Belgian scored his 9th league of the season and is on the right path towards getting Everton to top end of the league table.
Completing this week’s European Team of the week, we see Wolfsburg’s Max Kruse, Bayer Leverkusen’s Kevin Kempl and Guingamp’s Yannis Salibur. Kruse scored a brace in Wolfsburg’s 6-0 win over Werder Bremen. As for Kempl, he played a crucial role in Leverkusen’s 3-1 win over Frankfurt.
