From the Spanish press itself, here’s a look at La Liga’s team of the week for games played in Round 28.
The week saw the return of Zinedine Zidane for the second time at Real Madrid, and the Frenchman started off with a 2-0 win over Celta Vigo. It earned nominations for Keylor Navas in goal and Luka Modric in midfield. The victory brought Real to within two points of Atleti, whose misery from their Champions League exit spilled into their performance domestically, with Athletic Club registering a 2-0 win over Diego Simeone’s men at San Mames.
Ligue 1 Team of the Week Round 29 2018/19 season: Navas (Real Madrid), Pique and Lenglet (both Barca), Djene (Getafe), Theo Hernandez (Sociedad), Modric (Real Madrid), Januzaj (Sociedad), Jony (Alaves), Messi and Suarez (both Barca), Portu (Girona)
Life continued as usual for Barcelona, who produced a fine performance at the Villamarin to win 4-1 against Betis. So good was Lionel Messi, that a Spanish paper sent his third goal to a physicist for analysis! Barca dominate the Team of the Week with four representatives- quite apt given they scored four against Betis.
Getafe remain fourth after drawing with Valencia, but Alaves are now just two points behind them following their 3-1 win over Huesca. Sociedad have two players in the TOTW- they drew with Levante, which saw them being leapfrogged in the table by Bilbao.
