Munich striker Thomas Mueller is the player of the week after scoring three goals in those two matches.

Lionel Messi, last week's top player, dropped to second despite scoring both goals as Barcelona beat Eibar 2-0. Gareth Bale is third after his two goals led Real Madrid to a 2-0 win over Levante.

Behind Bayern, Paris Saint-Germain is second in the team poll after eliminating Chelsea from the Champions League. Manchester United, which beat Tottenham 3-0 in the Premier League, is third.
