Sadiq Umar and Emmanuel Dennis have seen their midweek performances in European competition rewarded with places in the official UEFA Teams of the Week.
Both scored braces for their respective sides: Sadiq’s double consigned Astana to defeat on home soil in the Europa League, while Dennis lit up the Bernabeu as Club Brugge came close to a very famous upset in the Champions League.
In acknowledgement of these feats, UEFA included both forwards in star-studded lineups of the week’s standout players. Dennis, in particular, is in exalted company, named alongside such big names as Robert Lewandowski, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.
Sadiq is joined in the Europa League team by highly-rated Dutch forward Donyell Malen and Manchester United target Bruno Fernandes.
