Bellingham shines as Real Madrid duo lead the La Liga Team of the Season



With nine games of the season left, domestic action pauses to welcome the March International break and as a result we take a look at the best XI from La Liga so far this season with players from Real Madrid, Girona, Athletic Club, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Sevilla and Real Betis.  


Paulo Gazzaniga (Girona) – 6.88 


In goal is Argentinian goalkeeper, Paulo Gazzaniga, who has played every single minute of league action for Girona this season. The former Tottenham stopper has made 90 saves so far, the fourth highest of any keeper, and has kept a total of ten clean sheets this term.  


Jules Kounde (Barcelona) – 6.94  


The first of two Barcelona full-backs to make the season’s best XI is Jules Kounde. The French defender has been impressive this season, particularly for his passing acumen, and ranks highly for total accurate passes  with just four players having made more than his 1665 thus far. 


Loic Bade (Sevilla) – 6.92  


Sevilla’s Loic Bade takes the first centre-back spot with a rating of 6.92 for his efforts so far this season. Despite it being a tough season for Sevilla, who sit just a handful of points above the drop zone, the Frenchman has still shone, averaging 2.9 aerial wins and 4.5 clearances per game as well as an 81.6% pass accuracy.  


Daley Blind (Girona) – 6.84 


Standing alongside Bade in the heart of the defense is former Manchester United defender Daley Blind. Blind has been an integral part in Girona’s fantastic season, which sees them in third just two points behind Barcelona. The 34-year-old continues to demonstrate his composure with a pass accuracy of 89.7%. 

Joao Cancelo (Barcelona) – 7.18  


The second Barcelona representative is Joao Cancelo with a rating of 7.18. Despite the Catalan side sitting eight points adrift of leaders Real Madrid, the Portuguese star has been one of the key threats from Xavi’s side. Cancelo has been deployed on both the left and the right in the full back positions and has cause lots of problems going forward, ranking highly (7th) for successful dribbles.

Inaki Williams (Athletic Club) – 7.29 


Inaki Williams is enjoying the best season of his career to date with a rating of 7.29. With nine goals under his belt already this season he is just one off equaling his tally of ten from the previous season.
