Real Madrid have become the Spanish La Liga Champions after five long years, toppling their arch rivals Barcelona in the process. A number of players have starred for the Galacticos to make it a successful year in the domestic competition, whereas a few have not been able to show their potential as per expectations of their coach Zinedine Zidane.
The players who have made an impact on the season with their brilliant display of prowess are-
The Portuguese superstar once again showed why he is termed as the talisman of Los Blancos. Though Ronaldo was not able to start the season in a regular fashion for his team due to the injury he had picked up during the Euro Cup final in 2016, the four times Balon D’Or winner made amends for the missed opportunities and ended the season with 25 goals from 29 games, showing his dominance over the opponent defenders, which grew in power as the season advanced.
Isco was brought into the side in place of Gareth Bale, who suffered an injury to miss a chunk of the season. The Spaniard latched onto the opportunity and did not disappoint his club manager Zinedine Zidane, showing a brilliant display of skills and making inroads into the heart of the opposition defence to score goals. He ended the season with 10 goals to his name.
The Brazilian full-back, apart from making his backline secure, played the role of an enforcer to help his team launch attacks on the opposition goal. Regarded as one of the best left-backs in the world, Marcelo made a name for himself by providing 10 assists for his teammates. He also scored two goals in the Spanish La Liga as well.
In an almost flawless season, there were a few negative performances as well. They are-
The Costa Rican goalkeeper was not in the best of forms throughout the season and has been criticised for his sloppy goalkeeping, which saw the opponents scoring a number of easy goals against him. Navas might be replaced by current Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea during the summer.
The right back did not feature in many of the matches, but given the high standards of his teammates and the need to step up, he had a disappointing season for Los Blancos in the backline.
The Welshman made a good start to the season, but was unable to carry on the good form due to an injury and had to be replaced by the brilliant Spaniard Isco for a major part of the season.
