Picking the top 25 players in La Liga is no easy task. For a start, when looking at the league that possesses more talent than any other in the world, how do you limit the list to just 25? Even more difficult, how do you decide between players of different positions? How can you compare Iker Casillas with Leo Messi or Gerard Piqué with Cristiano Ronaldo?
That said, I’ve decided to take on the challenge on the following premise. If the entire league was drafted from start to finish for one season only (therefore taking age out of the equation), who would go in the top 25?
That should help look at the players purely on their ability in their given positions. Form is temporary, class is permanent and these are 25 of the classiest players on the planet.
