|World Player of the Week
| Atletico Madrid
Arda Turan has been in fine form this past week, as he guided Atletico Madrid a step closer to the Europa League final by overcoming Valencia, and then produced a Man of the Match performance against Espanyol to keep the capital club's hopes of qualifying for next season's Champions League very much alive.
The Turkey international was the architect for Diego Simeone's side, his persistence helping create the opening goal for Radamel Falcao as they ran out convincing 4-2 winners against Los Che in the Europa League semi-final first leg on Thursday.
Then, on Sunday, the 25-year-old completed a fine seven days by scoring twice in three second-half minutes as Atleti defeated Espanyol 3-1.
|Congratulations to Turan, Goal.com's 153rd World Player of the Week winner!
Arturo Vidal - Juventus
Vidal was the star performer in Serie A this weekend as his stunning display helped Juventus thrash Roma 4-0, to edge further clear of AC Milan in the Scudetto race. The Chilean midfielder scored two first-half goals and was at the heart of everything the Old Lady did well as they maintained their unbeaten record this season.
Marouane Fellaini - Everton
Fellaini was in inspired form as Everton came from behind to draw 4-4 at Manchester United on Sunday. The Belgium international struck a sumptuous volley to bring his side back to 3-2 midway through the second half, and then laid on the equaliser for Steven Pienaar in the 85th minute. Thanks to the Belgian, the Premier League title race is back on.
Franck Ribery - Bayern Munich
The Frenchman would have been World Player of the Week were it not for his altercation with Arjen Robben on Tuesday following the 2-1 victory over Real Madrid. But he recovered his composure to score a stoppage-time winner as Bayern beat Werder Bremen 2-1. The 29-year-old was also instrumental in the Champions League win over the Spaniards, firing a sweetly-struck opening goal.
Mesut Ozil - Real Madrid
Ozil scored an all-important away goal in Real Madrid's 2-1 loss to Bayern Munich at Allianz Arena. But in what was a massive week for Los Blancos, the Germany playmaker was on the winning side at the weekend as he laid on the clincher for Cristiano Ronaldo in the Clasico. The capital giants defeated Barcelona 2-1 at Camp Nou to all but secure the Liga title.
Besart Berisha - Brisbane Roar
Berisha was the key man as Brisbane Roar triumphed over Perth Glory to win their second consecutive A-League title. The Albanian scored two, including a dramatic 97th-minute winner to give his side the victory, and the trophy. Although there was controversy, there is no doubt who the hero in Australia was at the weekend.
