VIDEO: Busquets, Cavani & The Ones to Watch in the UEFA Champions League

Europe's premier club competition is back - but who will be crowned the Santander Player of the Week?

The biggest show in town made a thrilling return on Tuesday following the international break.

And on Wednesday we’re getting ready to do it all over again.

But who will lead his club to glory with the most impressive performance of this matchday? Who will rise up above the rest and be crowned the UEFA Champions League Player of the Week, sponsored by Banco Santander?

Will Barcelona linchpin Sergio Busquets continue his remarkable run of completing 97% of his passes in the UCL this season, more than any other player who has started both matchdays?

Or will Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani be the star of the show as he faces former club Napoli for the first time since leaving the club in 2013?

Another day, another set of amazing UEFA Champions League fixtures 💪 Will any of these players feature in the Player of the Week reckoning? Posted by Football Santander on Wednesday, 24 October 2018

The UEFA Champions League is where the best of the best do battle, but it’s also where the continent’s new breed cut their teeth.

Such as 20-year-old Schalke's Weston McKennie, the latest US sensation in the Budesliga – the midfielder came into this Matchday with more interceptions (10) than anyone else in the competition.

And no club are flying the flag for youth more than Borussia Dortmund, who unleashed Jacob Bruun Larsen on Europe in their 3-0 victory in Monaco on Matchday Two.

The Dane became the youngest player since Wayne Rooney in 2004 to both score and assist on his UCL debut.

Voting for Player of the Week opens on Thursday .
