UEFA have announced their team of the week chosen from all those who played in the first batch of Champions League Round of 16 games. In the line-up there are Real Madrid players: Marcelo, Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo. Here is the eleven, and the brief explanation that UEFA give for choosing each player:

UEFA Champions League team of the week

Goalkeeper: Kevin Trapp (Paris)

A brilliant point-blank save from Chelsea's Diego Costa with the game goalless was just one of Trapp's contributions to Paris's 2-1 victory.

Defender: Antonio Rüdiger (Roma)

Eventually Cristiano Ronaldo scored and Real Madrid won 2-0 at Roma but Rüdiger was tenacious in keeping the visitors out for so long.

Defender: Gary Cahill (Chelsea)

John Terry and Kurt Zouma may have been injured yet Cahill was present and correct in Paris and ensured Chelsea stayed in the tie.

Defender: Raphaël Varane (Real Madrid)

Madrid pulled away in the second half but before that Varane was crucial in ensuring Roma did not maximise their pressure with fine interceptions and blocks.

Defender: Marcelo (Real Madrid)

Marcelo's pass set up Ronaldo's opener in Rome as he roamed freely up the left having only passed a late fitness test.

Midfielder: Willian (Chelsea)

Willian has been a constant bright spark in a mixed season for Chelsea and once again he was their fulcrum in midfield.

Midfielder: Renato Sanches (Benfica)

The teenager underlined his prodigious reputation with a dominant performance in the 1-0 success over Zenit – keeping Hulk, for one, subdued.

Midfielder: Julian Draxler (Wolfsburg)

Draxler scored twice in the 3-2 triumph at Gent, both times with an almost unnatural calm. His general awareness and touch were excellent.

Forward: Max Kruse (Wolfsburg)

Kruse got Wolfsburg's ultimately decisive third in Belgium with a neat volley having threatened throughout the night.

Forward: Jonas (Benfica)

It seeemed Benfica's dominance against Zenit would come to nought but in added time the in-form Jonas headed the winner.

Forward: Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid)

After his record 11 goals in the group stage, it took 57 minutes for Ronaldo to open his knockout account in Rome with a fine display of pace, poise and power.
