And in their trip to Luanda to face Girabola giants Petro de Atletico he once again proved why he's one of the most highly regarded players to manager Pitso Mosimane.

In his latest showing in the continental competition, he scored a penalty and grabbed a late assist to help Downs record an away point in Angola in the 2-2 draw.

That took Sirino's tally to six-goal contributions (two goals, four assists) in the six games he's featured for the Brazilians within their unbeaten 2019/20 campaign.

He's joined in the prestigious Team of the Week by three players from Group C rivals Wydad Casablanca, two from AS Vita while there are also representatives from Zamalek, Petro and USM Alger.
