team of the season
Ter Stegen's back to his best and has been a match-winner for Barça. He’s let in just seven goals in 19 games. That's seriously impressive.
(Barcelona - Goalkeeper)
Gayà has stayed at his boyhood club and, without him, Valencia would be in an even worse position. He’s scored one and set up two.
(Valencia - Defender)
Rayo are seventh at the halfway stage, thanks in no small part to a well-drilled defence that’s superbly marshalled by centre-back Catena.
(Rayo Vallecano - Defender)
Whether playing at right-back or centre-back, Koundé has slotted seamlessly into the Barcelona backline. He always performs.
(Barcelona - Defender)
Vinícius isn’t in top form right now, but was Real Madrid’s best player earlier in the season. He has six goals and three assists in LaLiga.
(Real Madrid - Midfielder)
Méndez, who has seven goals and three assists, pulls the strings in the Real Sociedad attack. The Basques sit third, and he has been key.
(Real Sociedad - Midfielder)
Girona’s midfield magician, García has been this season’s revelation. He has set up four goals, and plays almost three key passes per game.
(Girona - Midfielder)
Often operating in a new, deeper role, Griezmann has been Atlético’s stand-out performer this season. He has six goals and six assists.
(Atlético - Midfielder)
Nine goals and three assists so far. Aspas continues to write his name into Celta’s history books, and has hauled them out of the drop zone.
(Celta Vigo - Midfielder)
Joselu’s 11 goals have lifted Espanyol out of the bottom three. He’s the top Spanish scorer in LaLiga, and second overall.
(Espanyol - Striker)
Lewandowski is LaLiga’s leading marksman with 13, despite missing three games through suspension. He’s earned Barça countless points.
(Barcelona - Striker)
CATENA (Rayo V.)
TER STEGEN (Barça)
BRAIS M (R. Soc.)
ALEIX G. (Girona)
