Ajax Amsterdam playmaker Dusan Tadic has won the Champions League Player of the Week Award following his superb performance against European champions Real Madrid.

Serbian international Tadic was influential to help Ajax Amsterdam eliminate the defending champions from the competition.

Tadic won the award ahead of the trio of Romelu Lukaku (Manchester United), Moussa Marega (FC Porto) and Hugo Lloris (Tottenham Hotspur).

Belgian international Lukaku scored two goals to give Manchester United a priceless 3-1 win at Paris Saint Germain (PSG) in their last 16-second leg clash and that was more than enough for the Red Devils to secure a quarterfinal spot on away goals.

Manchester United had lost the first leg 2-0 at home.

Lukaku made it six goals in his last three games for Manchester United with his brace against PSG.

Malian international Moussa Marega continued his good form for FC Porto as he was on target in their 3-1 home victory over Italian Serie A giants AS Roma in their last 116-second leg meeting.

FC Porto achieved the 3-1 result for a 4-3 aggregate win at the end of extra time after regulation time ended 2-1 with Marega getting the second goal.

Roma had won the first leg 2-1 in Italy.

Tottenham Hotspur shot-stopper Hugo Lloris made several saves in the first half to deny Borussia Dortmund before Harry Kane scored in the second half to give Spurs a 1-0 win and a 4-0 aggregate victory.
