We have named him our European player of the weekend after a splendid hat-trick against Genoa at the weekend. Unfortunately, La Viola's defence could not match his antics, and the match finished 3-3. Fiorentina lie fourth in the Serie A standings.
Aquilani was the only representative from Serie A this weekend, with Spain's Liga dominating the top XI.
Arda Turan was a stand-out for Atletico Madrid as they beat Rayo Vallecano 4-2, with no less than six players from that league appearing on our team sheet.
There were two players apiece from Germany and France, with Schalke's Jefferson Farfan shining with a goal and two assists in the 3-0 win over Hamburg.
