The UEFA Champions League semi-finals are upon us, with four of Europe's finest primed to battle for a place in the final in Madrid.

But who will rise up above the rest and be crowned the UEFA Champions League Player of the Week, sponsored by Banco Santander?

Christian Eriksen has been crucial to Tottenham's journey to the final four of Europe's premier club competition, and he will hope to have a significant impact against his former side Ajax, who have surprised the continent by knocking out holders Real Madrid and Juventus.

The Denmark international keeps Spurs ticking over with his incisive passing - he has averaged a key pass every 31 minutes in the UCL this season.

For Ajax, Hakim Ziyech has been instrumental to the four-time European champions as they strive for a fifth title. The Moroccan playmaker ranks fourth in the UCL for completed dribbles (27), and will hope to improve on that tally at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
