Opta kept a watchful eye across all the games taking place in Europe's biggest leagues this weekend and put together a best XI.

Bayern Munich dominate the team following a brilliant 5-0 win away at Fortuna Dusseldorf, with four of their players making the selection.

Thomas Mueller leads the way having scored twice and produced one key pass (you can view the full stats for each player at the bottom of the page).

Elsewhere, Lionel Messi is an obvious inclusion after scoring a hat-trick in a stunning 5-4 victory over Deportivo La Coruna in La Liga, and he is partnered in attack by Wayne Rooney, who also had three goals even if one of them was at the wrong end.
