Nicolas Pépé's two free-kicks for Arsenal earned him a place in the Matchday 3 XI, with the top-ranked player in the FedEx Performance Zone, Franco Vázquez, one of two Sevilla players in the team.

AZ and Qarabağ also have two men apiece in the all-star side for this matchday, while Krasnodar's Matvei Safonov was the biggest riser, up 440 places to 83rd in the overall rankings by the end of the night.
