La Liga Santander Team of the Week After Week 31

Pulled a stunt on Atletico Madrid, RCD Mallorca coach Javier Aguirre tends to manage La Liga Santander team of the week after week-31 and selected players from seven teams with Real Madrid the most featured stars.


Diego López

Played for most of Europe's elite teams - Real Madrid, Sevilla, and AC Milan, López's experience did count against Celta Vigo putting out his best form saving the day with 6-sighted shots on goal, a successful one-on-one clearance, and most importantly a clean sheet lifting his side an inch close to relegation.


Diego Carlos and Antonio Raillo. The duo in defense produced an awesome performance from a winning perspective. Diego Carlos with Sevilla's opening goal against Granada before subsequent goals In a 4-2 victory. In Mallorca's defense captain Antonio Raillo defended his side's only goal against Atletico Madrid. Making them the perfect pair in this role.


Alfonso Pedraza

Featured on Villarreal's left-back position, Alfonso Pedraza saved the day with a brilliant strike canceling that of Athletic Club Raul Garcia's in a 1-1 draw at home. Also sighted-7 ground duels and 5-interceptions alongside the highest-rated player on both sides.

Lucas Vázquez

Starred at the expanse of Daniel Carvajal in Real Madrid right-back, Vázquez took the game to Getafe's half swaying passes between Rodrigo and eventually doubled down on Casemiro's goal with brilliant delightful touch along with 3-key passes, 4-successful long balls, and the man of the match honor.



In an event, the club's lead scorer this season Karim Benzema failed to deliver, the Brazilian stepped in, and unleash his first goal of the season with a diving header off Vinicius Junior's curled, and chipped cross, maintaining Real Madrid's gap at the top by

Ivan Rakitic

The backbone of Sevilla's midfield this season is Rakitic which was evident against Granada. He had the highest recorded pass accuracy of 91.6%, 7-long successful balls, 4-key passes, and most importantly an assist in his team's 4-2 victory.

David Silva

Age seems to be just a number for the ex-Manchester City midfield. Just like usual he delivered two assists for Real Sociedad from a goal down to seal victory past Elche from away. He also recorded 3-key passes aside from the assists. And Captains the team.


Ousmane Dembélé, Vinicius Junior, and Alexander Sørloth

Ousmane Dembélé and Vinicius Junior are indeed two teenage geniuses in this era, their pace, position, and ability to penetrate the opposition's half are incredible earning them an assist each for their respective teams in a winning perspective. Paired in a two-man striker force, Sørloth's equalizer paved way for teammate Robin Le Normand to double down on Elche extending Real Sociedad's unbeaten run to four. Such an incredible performance.
