UEFA Champions League: Best and Worst of the Week

Save of the week - Joe Hart

Manchester City may have found themselves on the wrong end of a 2-0 defeat to Bayern Munich on Tuesday, but the finger of blame could not be pointed in the direction of Hart. The Blues' first-choice stop-stopper proved why he is number one for club and country with a string of fine saves at the Allianz Arena. Unfortunately for Hart and City, his luck was out. Bayern broke the deadlock on 38 minutes through Mario Gomez after Hart had pulled off a remarkable double stop to deny Franck Ribery and Thomas Muller. The England international was at it again moments before the interval, as he kept Daniel van Buyten at bay, but once again the ball broke kindly for Gomez to bundle home. The burly Bayern striker almost completed his hat-trick in the second half, but Hart was able to tip a powerful header away from the target, out of Muller's reach and around the post.
