As La Liga gameweek 33 came to an end, Real Madrid moved four points clear of Barcelona at the top of the table, courtesy of the Catalan giants’ 2-2 draw with Atletico Madrid.

While the race for the European places is still well and truly on, RCD Mallorca managed to get a huge win over Celta Vigo to keep their survival hopes alive.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at our La Liga Team of the Week for game week 33. The formation used is 4-2-4.

Goalkeeper: Aitor Fernandez (Levante)

The Spaniard put in another goalkeeping masterclass to earn his team a point in the goalless draw against Valladolid. Aitor Fernandez stopped a 97th-minute penalty from Enes Unal to save Levante from a certain defeat.

He also made the highest number of saves (4) in the game and kept his fifth La Liga clean sheet of the season.

Right-back: Alejandro Pozo (RCD Mallorca)

Alejandro Pozo is a versatile player who can play either as a right-winger or a right-back.

The 21-year-old, who is on loan from Sevilla, scored his first La Liga goal in Mallorca’s 5-1 rout of Celta Vigo, who are now just five points and a place above the relegation zone.

Centre-back: Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid)

Sergio Ramos was on the scoresheet yet again as he converted a late penalty to help Real Madrid to an important 1-0 win over Getafe.

He also helped Los Blancos keep a clean sheet and completed the second-highest number of passes (54) in the game. It was the Spaniard’s ninth league goal of the season.

Centre-back: Diego Carlos (Sevilla)

Diego Carlos has to be one of the defenders of the season in La Liga this term. The Brazilian has been immense for Sevilla, who are fighting for Champions League qualification next season.

The former Nantes man had a solid game in the 3-0 win over Leganes as he helped keep a clean sheet, managed to complete the second-highest number of passes (61), the highest number of interceptions (3) and highest number of blocks (1).

Left-back: Renan Lodi (Atletico Madrid)

Renan Lodi might not look the ideal choice for the left-back spot, but the Brazilian had a terrific game defensively against Barcelona, even though his team conceded twice.

Lodi, who didn’t have much of the ball to show his crossing skills, made up for it with his solid defensive outing.

He managed the third-highest number of tackles (2) and the highest number of interceptions (3) in the 2-2 draw against Barcelona.

Central midfielder: Saul Niguez (Atletico Madrid)

The Spanish international put in a great performance against a title-chasing Barcelona side. Saul Niguez was everywhere on the pitch for Los Rojiblancos, who managed a 2-2 draw against the Catalan giants with just 27% possession. He scored a brace, with both his goals coming from the spot. On the defensive front, Saul made the highest number of tackles (5) and third-highest number of interceptions (2) in the game.

Central midfielder: Oliver Torres (Sevilla)

Oliver Torres is finally looking settled in La Liga after a below-par stint with Atletico Madrid. The midfielder, who returned to Spain from Porto last summer, scored his first career brace as Sevilla comfortably won 3-0 against Leganes. Torres has scored three goals and provided as many assists in 24 league appearances this season.

Right-wing: Takefusa Kubo (RCD Mallorca)

The Japanese youngster, who is on loan from Real Madrid, has been decent so far this season for relegation-threatened Mallorca. However, Takefusa Kubo was at his very best as Mallorca demolished Celta Vigo 5-1. Kubo was instrumental for his side as he provided two assists and was unlucky not to score a goal himself.

Left-wing: Ruben Garcia (Osasuna)

Ruben Garcia scored a brace as Osasuna won comfortably against Eibar with a scoreline of 2-0 to move up to 11th place in the standings. In 29 La Liga appearances so far this season, Garcia has scored seven goals and provided two assists.

Striker: Raul Garcia (Athletic Bilbao)

Raul Garcia has been primarily a winger or a playmaker but since making his move to Athletic Bilbao from Atletico Madrid four seasons back, he has transformed into a decent striker. The versatile Spaniard scored a fantastic brace to seal a vital 2-0 win over Valencia as Los Leones continued their surge towards a Europa League place.

Striker: Gerard Moreno (Villarreal)

Gerard Moreno is one of the most underrated strikers in La Liga. The Spanish hitman, who has been consistent in front of goal season after season, scored a brace as Villarreal defeated Real Betis 2-0 to move to within three points of a Champions League spot. Moreno has made 31 league appearances so far this season, scoring 15 goals and providing four assists.
