Barcelona's bursting full-back isn't just the obvious choice for right-back, he's close to being the only choice.
Against Spain in the recent Confederations Cup final, he showed a more disciplined side to his game, while for Barca he's often more akin to a winger than a defender.
Real Madrid's young Frenchman looks set to become first choice alongside Sergio Ramos at the heart of Los Blancos' defense from now on.
The 20-year-old impressed in the absence of Pepe and hasn't looked back since.
Atletico Madrid's Uruguayan center-back was arguably the best, most consistent defender across La Liga last season.
Diego Simeone's men finished third, qualifying for the Champions League and won the Copa del Rey, maintaining the tightest defense in Spain—Godin played a large part in that.
Unlike his compatriot on the right side, Filipe Luis had plenty of competition for his slot in this side.
From the Bernabeu, Marcelo and Fabio Coentrao were certainly pushing to be included, but Atleti's Brazilian has been the most consistent left-back in La Liga over the past 18 months.
