In the week that Barcelona won the title, it is of little surprise that Messi hs found a place in our team of the week – but who joins the Argentine?

Norberto Neto, Valencia – seven points

His 32nd start of the campaign was complemented by a 10th clean sheet, to, as Valencia battled out a frustrating 0-0 with Eibar.

The Bats seem set to secure European football however, with Neto playing a valuable role in their campaign.

Martin Montoya, Valencia – five points

Montoya is another member of the Valencia back line that has played an important role in their season.

With four assists to add to his eight clean sheets, the Spaniard’s value as an attacking outlet as been important to their season and has helped him to 33 points.

Diego Godin, Atletico Madrid – five points

Godin has cultivated a reputation as one of the finest defenders in Europe – something that his 81 points are testament too.

With 18 clean sheets this season, the Uruguayan is arguably the linchpin of the Atletico defence.

Sime Vrsaljko, Atletico Madrid – five points

Vrsaljko repaid Simeone’s faith following his Europa League red card at Arsenal, securing a 13th clean sheet in his 20 La Liga appearances this campaign.

With his side back in action this weekend, he will be on tenterhooks to see whether a European final awaits him.

Stefan Savic, Atletico Madrid – five points

The one time Manchester City reject has grown in stature during his time at Atletico and continues to contribute to Simeone’s side.

With 67 points, and 15 clean sheets, he’ll be more than happy with his side’s three points against Alaves.

Philippe Coutinho, Barcelona – four points

With ten goals, 11 assists, 81 points and a bumper move, this has been a huge campaign for the Brazilian.

He scored in his side’s weekend victory to add a second trophy to his short spell at the Nou Camp.

Gareth Bale, Real Madrid – four points

Considering that the Welshman is said to be in the midst of a ‘bad’ season, his 54 points, 23 games and 12 goals suggest otherwise.

It remains to be seen whether Bale  will stay past this campaign but there’s no doubt he will be in high demand if he chooses to end his tenure in Spain.

Pione Sisto, Celta Vigo – four points

Sisto has been an important player in what has proven to be an entertaining Celta Vigo side this season.

With 47 points from his 33 appearances, thanked in part to his 11 assists this campaign, his creativity has been central to their football.

Emre Colak, Deportivo La Coruna – 14 points

Relegated Deportivo may have been on the end of a disappointing season but Colak  can be upbeat about his individual performance.

His goal on the 63rd minute made it a competitive affair but the fact his performance puts his point tally up to just fourteen tells you everything you need to know about their disappointing season.

Lionel Messi, Barcelona – four points

The iconic Argentine has played a huge role in his run to the title, his 154 points being crucial for the side.

He added a hat-trick in his side’s 4-2 victory over Deportivo to put him on 32 goals and 12 assists for the campaign.

Carlos Bacca, Villarreal – 14 points

The Colombian striker is having a good time of it in the yellow of Villarreal and may well be hoping he can make his loan move permanent.
