Without further ado, let’s take a look at our La Liga Team of the Week for gameweek 37. The formation used is 4-2-4.

Goalkeeper: Jan Oblak (Atletico Madrid)

Arguably the best goalkeeper in the world, Jan Oblak had an outstanding game in the 2-0 victory over Getafe. The Atletico Madrid shot-stopper kept a clean sheet, made the highest number of saves (5) and recoveries (17) in the game.


Right-back: Victor Diaz (Granada)

Victor Diaz has been a vital player for Granada in a season where the newly-promoted La Liga side have stunned everyone with their performances. The right-back has been consistent throughout the season and showed his brilliance in the 2-1 win over Mallorca, who were relegated to the Segunda Division. Diaz scored a goal and made the highest number of tackles (4) in the game.


Centre-back: Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid)

Sergio Ramos has been one of the best players for Real Madrid, who won the La Liga title with a game to spare. The Spanish international was solid at the back and won a penalty, which was converted by Karim Benzema as Los Blancos beat Villarreal 2-1. 


Centre-back: Unai Bustinza (Leganes)

Unai Bustinza put in a defensive masterclass as he helped his team to a season-defining 2-0 victory over Athletic Bilbao. The Leganes captain helped keep a clean sheet, made the third-highest number of tackles (2) and the highest number of interceptions (4) in the game. The win kept Leganes’ hopes of saving their La Liga status alive. 


Left-back: Pervis Estupinan (Osasuna)

Pervis Estupinan, who is on loan at Osasuna from Premier League side, Watford, was outstanding in the 2-1 win over Barcelona. The Ecuadorian full-back provided the assist for the opening goal, made the highest number of recoveries (8) and the second-highest number of blocks (1) in the game.


Central midfielder: Marcos Llorente (Atletico Madrid)

Marcos Llorente, who can play both as a midfielder or a second striker, has been a key cog in Diego Simeone’s side this season. The former Real Madrid player scored his fifth La Liga goal of the campaign in Atletico Madrid’s 2-0 win over Getafe as Los Rojiblancos tightened their grip on a third-place finish.


Central midfielder: Jose Campana (Levante)

Jose Campana has been one of the most consistent performers for Levante in the present campaign. The former Spanish Under-21 international was running the show in the 3-2 win over relegation-threatened Celta Vigo as he provided an assist, managed the third-highest number of passes (38) and the second-highest number of recoveries (10) in the game. 


Right-winger: Lionel Messi (Barcelona)

Lionel Messi tried his best again but couldn’t stop Barcelona from losing 2-1 to Osasuna as the Catalan giants conceded the title to Real Madrid. The Argentine wizard scored from a brilliant free-kick to make it 1-1 but it wasn’t enough as Osasuna won the game in injury-time. It was Messi’s 23rd La Liga goal of the campaign as he remains in pole position to win the Golden Boot race. 


Left-winger: Enis Bardhi (Levante)

Enis Bardhi has been in fine form since the league’s restart. The North Macedonian winger scored a brace as he helped Levante to a thrilling 3-2 victory over Celta Vigo, who are just a point and a place above the relegation zone, heading into the final game of the season.


Striker: Roger Assale (Leganes)

Roger Assalé, who is on loan from Swiss club BSC Young Boys, has been mainly used as a substitute by Levante, and the game against Athletic Bilbao was no different. However, Assale was outstanding in his 20-minute cameo as he scored a goal and provided an assist as Leganes live to fight on the final day of the season.


Striker: Karim Benzema (Real Madrid)

Karim Benzema scored a brace in Real Madrid’s 2-1 win over Villarreal as Los Blancos wrapped up the title with a game to spare. The Frenchman has scored 21 La Liga goals this season and is only behind Lionel Messi in the race for the Golden Boot.


This is how our La Liga Team of the Week for gameweek 37 would line up:
