All football Leagues in the World will take a two weeks break to pave way for the International break. This means the return of UEFA Nations League, friendly matches and AFCON Qualifiers among others. Today, before we shift to national pride, let us look at how World Class stars performed for their clubs last weekend.

Neymar opened the scoring for PSG last weekend. The Brazilian enjoyed a fine week after netting a hat-trick in UEFA Champions League clash against Red Star Belgrade. He scored to start a 5-1 rout at Parc des Princes. However, Kylian Mbappe stole the show.
5. Eden Hazard- 1 Goal, 1 Assist

Chelsea is now level on points with Liverpool and defending Champions Manchester City. The Blues hammered Southampton 3-0 at St. Marys to continue the impressive run.
Eden Hazard was the man of the match again with a goal and an assist to his name. The Belgian is enjoying his football and Maurizio Sarri deserves to be praised for that. This is going to be a big season for the player and the team.
4. Lionel Messi- 1 Goal

Barcelona poor run continued last weekend. This time It was Valencia fighting for a valuable 1 point against the Catalan giants. This was the fourth match they have failed to win since 23rd September draw against Girona. The only good news is that their rivals Real Madrid are struggling too. Sevilla is now top of the table with 16 points, 1 ahead of the Camp Nou side and 2 ahead of the Los Blancos.
Last weekend, Lionel Messi scored in the 23rd minute to earn his side a valuable point. The hosts went ahead in the 2nd minute to pile pressure on Ernesto Valverde side.
