  week[not(@opp = following-sibling::week/@opp)]


  week/@opp[not(. = ../following-sibling::week/@opp)]

Alternatively, you could use a key and the Muenchian grouping method
to create your groups. That will probably be more efficient,
especially if you have lots of week elements. Have a look at for a
