As Sunday sees the football activity across the world wind down, it's time for us to speculate who will make it to FIFA 21's TOTW 16, the second Team of the Week of 2021.
Let's start with the shoo-in choices, and no one more sure to make into the TOTW than Lionel Messi. The Barcelona legend scored a brace as Los Cules keep climbing positions in La Liga after their deserved win over Granada 4-0.
Fellow teammate Antoine Griezmann also managed two goals and bagged an assist, making him the perfect candidate to join Messi in the TOTW representing Barcelona.
Over at the Bundesliga, USA wonderkid Matthew Hoppe scored his first professional goal, ending up with a hat-trick against Hoffenheim, putting an end to Schalke 04's record of 30 games without a win in the Bundesliga.
