Here are our top performers from La Liga’s weekend action, as impressive wins for Atletico Madrid, Girona and Real Sociedad see players from these teams feature heavily in our eleven!
Jan Oblak, Atletico Madrid – seven points
The 25-year-old Slovenian has continued to grow in stature at the Spanish club and was again a valuable member of the Atletico Madrid team in their comfortable 2-0 weekend win.
Oblak now sits on 16 clean sheets in 24 games, becoming the highest points scorer in La Liga with 109 points.
Juanpe, Girona – nine points
Girona have had an impressive season across 2017/18, currently sitting in eighth in the league having only been promoted to the premiere Spanish division last season.
The 26-year-old has amassed 32 points this campaign, with him winning seven clean sheets this season – playing a valuable role in the team’s rise in prominence in Spanish football.
Jordi Alba, Barcelona – nine points
Barcelona ran out 2-0 winners in their away trip to Eibar, with Alba grabbing a late goal in the outing.
Alba now has an impressive 84 points – the most of any La Liga defender.
Sime Vrsaljko, Atletico Madrid – five points
The 26-year-old Croatian has had to be patient for opportunities since his move from Sassuolo, due to the form of Juanfran but put in a solid performance in their win over Bilbao.
Vrsaljko now has 45 points for the season, highlighting the growing significance that he has in Diego Simeone’s squad.
Victor Laguardia, Alaves – five points
The 28-year-old has played a less than prominent role for Alaves this season, having made just six appearances in 2017/18.
However, his exploits in the side’s 1-0 win over La Coruna saw him earn five points in a performance that suggests he still has a role to play for the 15th placed side.
Sergio Canales, Real Sociedad – eight points
The 27-year-old has hit a good patch of form in recent games, hitting our team of the week on a couple of occasions.
The Spanish midfielder netted in his sides 3-0 win over relegation threatened Levante as they rose to 12th in the league – allowing him to hit 24 points for the season.
Marco Asensio, Real Madrid – eight points
The Spanish international is continuing to grow in importance in the Madrid midfield, with him playing a significant role in Zidane’s efforts to turn around a poor season for the club.
His brace in the 5-3 thriller away to Real Betis saw him collect eight points on the weekend, seeing the 22-year-old to 42 for the campaign.
Portu, Girona – six points
The 25-year-old is another member of the Girona squad that has played a prominent role in their growth as a La Liga team.
Portu netted the second goal in the Spanish side’s 3-0 win over Leganes, scoring his ninth of the season for the newly promoted team.
Xabi Prieto, Real Sociedad – six points
The 34-year-old has been at Sociedad for a whopping 18 years, amassing an impressive 477 league appearances in that time.
Despite entering the twilight years of his career, the Spanish midfielder is continuing to play a prominent role for the club – having won 31 points thanks to his three goals and five assists this season.
Christian Stuani, Girona – four points
The Uruguayan striker has been a revelation for the newly promoted team, having joined from English side Middlesborough, for whom he had an inconsistent couple of years.
The 31-year-old grabbed the first in his side’s 3-0 win, netting confidently from the spot to put him on 13 goals and 45 points for the season.
Kevin Gameiro, Atletico Madrid – six points
Gameiro might have felt that his opportunities at Atletico would be at a premium following the January return of Diego Costa but he has continued to prove his value to the team.
The Frenchman has a respectable five goals and two assists in fourteen appearances this season, helping his to 24 points this season.
