European Team of the Week: November 16-18

Former Arsenal forward Jose Antonio Reyes has been off the radar for the past few years but he enjoyed a great weekend's work in La Liga and makes it into Opta's European Team of the Week.

Reyes struck twice and claimed an assist as Sevilla defeated Real Betis 5-1 to earn a crushing victory in their city derby.

Lionel Messi also scored twice as Barcelona beat Real Sociedad 3-1 while his great rival Cristiano Ronaldo makes it into the team despite failing to find the net against Athletic Bilbao.

Instead Ronaldo provided four key passes and hit the target seven times against the Basque side.

Carlos Tevez's brace against Aston Villa sees him stationed alongside international team-mate Messi while Liverpool's Jose Enrique gets a place after an influential performance against Wigan.
