GK: Gianluigi Buffon - Juventus - 1 Game, 4 Saves, 1 Clean Sheet = 9 Points

DF: Juanfran - Atletico - 1 Game, 1 Clean Sheet = 7 Points

Juanfran is currently top five in assists among La Liga defenders so it’s possible that his owners were looking for some attacking points, but the clean sheet will certainly do. It will be tough to hold a fairly on-form Leicester to nil again in the reverse fixture but Atleti boast arguably the best defence in Europe and will certainly be backing themselves.

DF: Giorgio Chiellini - Juventus - 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Clean Sheet = 14 Points

What a day Chiellini had. Not only securing a clean sheet against one of the most prolific attacks in the world, but he also scored a thunderous header that may have settled the tie in the first leg. Many will point out the turnaround Barcelona had against Paris Saint-Germain but this Juventus defence is far, far better than that of the French side.

DF: Dani Alves - Juventus - 1 Game, 1 Clean Sheet = 7 Points

MF: Thiago Alcantara - Bayern - 1 Game, 1 Assist = 5 Points

MF: Miralem Pjanic - Juventus - 1 Game, 1 Assist = 5 Points

MF: Shinji Kagawa - Dortmund - 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Assist = 11 Points

FW: Kylian Mbappe - Monaco - 1 Game, 2 Goals = 12 Points

As predicted in our preview article, this match had plenty of goals in it. Mbappe is in a ridiculous vein of form having scored 12 goals in his last 10 starts and there’s little to suggest that Dortmund will be able to stop the prolific Frenchman in the reverse fixture.

FW: Cristiano Ronaldo - Real Madrid - 1 Game, 2 Goals = 12 Points

Well hello there, Cristiano. Having come into this match with no goals in the last five Champions League matches, the Portuguese talisman fired in two goals against a very good Bayern Munich side. It’s possible that this is just a blip, but the smart money, historically speaking, would be on Ronaldo.

FW: Paulo Dybala - Juventus - 1 Game, 2 Goals = 12 Points
