With Christmas fast approaching, this was a big weekend for a number of the world's top leagues.
A number of Europe's top leagues find themselves heading into either hectic festive periods or warming down as they head towards their winter breaks, and a number of big clubs were looking to make their title mark.
In South America, the Brasileirao and a number of others witnessed their final weekend of the season, whilst Argentina's Torneo Inicial championship has also seen a number of key matches make an impact on either end of the table.
Also, this weekend brought about the 2013 MLS Cup, with Sporting KC emerging triumphant over Real Salt Lake—congratulations to them.
Anyway, with all that being said, here's a look at the weekend's top five performers.
