FIFA Ultimate Team – Team of the Week

You don’t see one player score five goals in a single match that often. But over the weekend, German International Miroslav Klose put the ball in the back at the net five times in a 6-0 Lazio thrashing over Bologna. Those five goals increased his season tally to 15 and helped keep the club alive as they hope to earn a qualifying spot for Europe this fall.

It might not be five goals, but Napoli’s Edinson Cavani scored three times to help defeat Inter Milan 3-1. The win ensured the club will take part in Europe’s premier club competition this fall. A win at Bologna or an AC Milan draw or loss to Pescara on Wednesday ensures direct qualification to the group stage.

There’s a two-horse race for first-place in Russia between CSKA Moskva and Zenit St. Petersburg. Over the weekend, Zenit’s Hulk scored a hat-trick as the club easily defeated relegated-bound Alania Vladikavkaz. With only three points separating first and second and (words deleted) only three matches left in the season, the battle for the Russian Premier League title should be a thrill to follow.
