Barcelona climb the charts; Juventus, Bayern and Madrid still lead the way

The top three remain the same in Shaka Hislop's Power Rankings but look who is making a move just behind them...

1. Juventus (no change)

The leaders maintain their No. 1 position but theirs was not a straightforward week, given they had to come from behind to draw at Udinese. Despite that, though, Juve extended their lead in Serie A to eight points, courtesy of Roma's defeat to Napoli.

2. Bayern Munich (no change)

After cruising to a 3-0 win at Cologne, the Bundesliga leaders then brought the pain vs. Arsenal for a second time. Bayern fell behind but, after the Gunners were reduced to 10 men, scored five unanswered goals to claim a 10-2 aggregate win.

3. Real Madrid (no change)

A pair of tricky-looking away games were negotiated successfully by the European champions. First, Madrid won 4-1 at Eibar, despite being without Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, before Sergio Ramos inspired a comeback victory at Napoli.

4. Barcelona (+4)

Maybe Luis Enrique should have announced he was leaving earlier! Barca thrashed Celta Vigo 5-0 before pulling off one of the most remarkable comebacks of all-time to beat Paris Saint-Germain 6-1 and claim a Champions League quarterfinal place.

5. Chelsea (-1)

Eden Hazard's goal set Chelsea on the way to victory at West Ham.

Antonio Conte's men took another step toward the Premier League title with a win at West Ham that was more comfortable than the 2-1 scoreline suggested. Chelsea were in control throughout and retain their 10-point lead.

6. Borussia Dortmund (new)

Scoring 10 goals in two games will get you plenty of attention... and a place in my rankings! Dortmund thrashed Leverkusen 6-2 in the Bundesliga and then struck four times to sweep past Benfica and into the Champions League quarterfinals.

7. Monaco (no change)

A 4-0 win against Nantes took Monaco past the 80-goals mark in Ligue 1 this season and, more importantly, saw the French leaders maintain their three-point lead over PSG. Kylian Mbappe scored twice, as speculation about his future continues.

8. Tottenham (new)

Another edition of the Harry Kane-Dele Alli show saw Mauricio Pochettino's men beat Everton 3-2 to claim their ninth win in their last 12 league games. Kane scored twice to take his season tally to 24 goals in all competitions.

9. Benfica (no change)

They are still top in Portugal, one point clear of Porto, but Benfica's Champions League run ground to a sudden halt at the hands of Dortmund. Rui Vitoria's side took a 1-0 lead into the second leg but simply had no answer to the Germany side.

10. Sevilla (no change)

They are still just four points off top spot in La Liga but Monday's 1-1 draw at Alaves, in which they took the lead only to concede a late equaliser, was a setback. Leganes are next for Sevilla, who the visit Leicester in the Champions League.

Dropping out: Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City.
