A look back at the La Liga this season

La Liga this season has gone through 26 rounds. Not too many surprises happen in the race to the championship. Because La Liga’s top scorers standing in the Top 4 is still familiar with Barca leading the table, followed by Real Madrid, Sevilla, and Atletico. However, the application Wysout (specializing in statistics, evaluation of professional football) is not too high regard for the players of the four teams leading La Liga.

Closing in 2019, Wyscout announced the La Liga team of the season 2019/20 after 18 rounds. These are the results given based on the player’s performance data since the beginning of the season. Accordingly, neither Sevilla nor Atletico has any players to be named. Even the team-leading La Liga Barca has only captain Lionel Messi, while Real Madrid has two representatives, Karim Benzema and striker Sergio Ramos.

According to the 4-4-2 diagram by Wyscout, the best La Liga strikers after 26 rounds are Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema and Joselu. However, Joselu’s performance on the pitch is not so impressive. After 26 matches for Alaves in La Liga, the 29-year-old only scored 7 goals and had 1 pass into the table. He was less than striker Luis Suarez of Barca to 11 goals and ranked behind a series of other players on the scoring list such as Gerard Moreno of Villarreal, Loren of Betis.


In the 4-man midfield that Wyscout voted, Barca superstar Lionel Messi is ranked in the right midfield. Two central midfielders are Martin Odegaard of Real Sociedad and Raul Garcia of Bilbao. While left midfield is for 22-year-old Mikel Oyarzabal of Real Sociedad. Of these, besides Messi, Odegaard deserves recognition. In a defensive role, the Norwegian player is booming in the Basque team shirt with 4 goals and 5 passes into the table. However, both names Oyarzabal and Garcia are more or less controversial if placed next to stars like Casemiro, Toni Kroos (Real Madrid), Frenkie de Jong (Barca)

In the defense

In the defense, the only familiar face appearing in Wyscout’s vote is Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos. Left, both right-back Emerson (Betis), center-back Inigo Martinez (Bilbao) and left-back Pervis Estupinan (Osasuna) have made experts question. Many people wonder why not see names like Gerard Pique (Barca), Sergio Reguilon (Sevilla), especially Atletico’s defense experts.
