The majority of major club leagues take a break over the coming week as the final places at the 2014 World Cup go up for grabs in the next 10 days.

Before then, however, this weekend played home to more important matches across the world's top leagues—including the finals of the Asian and African Champions Leagues.

As such, our congratulations to Marcello Lippi's Guangzhou Evergrande for their victory in the Asian competition and to Egyptian giants Al-Ahly, led by the outstanding Mohamed Aboutrika, who scored the opener in a 2-0 win, for their African triumph.

Nonetheless, we make no apologies for this weekend's column having selected five European-based players, since all selected were very much on top of their game.

With the qualifiers next weekend, two will be hoping to take this form forward as they go face to face.

Disagree with any of the picks or feel as if there's a standout omission? Let us know in the comments section below.

But before then, here are our top five performers.
