The team of the week is an opportunity for every player in La Liga to have their talents showcased from the past weekend and, usually, we see an enjoyable mix of the top names, consistently good upper-half players and a handful of individuals from the smaller sides who have put in one-off big performances.
Sometimes, however, the top names show exactly why they are the biggest clubs—because they're the best and they combine brilliantly.
That was the case this weekend, and Real Madrid and Barcelona in particular dominate our selected XI, which lines up 4-4-2.
For our side, we take the best individual displays from Spain's top flight and combine the most impressive player from each position into a viable formation, with our selection process seeing us analyse every game to pick out a star XI from the weekend's fixtures.
This week, it's an offensive 4-4-2, with only the best players in each position included here, leading, as always, to several tough decisions along the way. In addition to individual form, we take into account such factors as opposition quality and overall contribution to the team's display.
