European Team of the Week: January 11-13

There is a familiar face in attack but our European Team of the Week has a rather understated feel to it this week.

Lionel Messi retains his place after claiming a goal and two assists for Barcelona in a victory over Malaga on Sunday.

However, the rest of the team is made up of unsung heroes.

The only Premier League representative is the unlikely figure of Tottenham's Kyle Naughton, who impressed in a 0-0 draw with QPR.

Elsewhere, Nice contribute three players following a 5-0 win over Valenciennes.
