La Liga: The player who will represent each club in FIFA 20 tournament

  • Kat Lucas

Like the rest of European football, La Liga’s season has been thrown into chaos by the coronavirus pandemic. 

It’s hoped that the postponement of Euro 2020 by a year will leave the summer clear to complete domestic fixtures. 

In Spain, it’s particularly disappointing that games have been suspended when the campaign was looking so finely poised. 

Barcelona lead Real Madrid at the top by just two points, while there are just two points between Sevilla, Real Sociedad, Getafe and Atletico Madrid in the battle for Champions League football. 

We can only hope that at some stage, it’ll be safe to return and complete the season.

In the meantime, everyone within the professional game is feeling a little lost.

Premier League clubs started by playing noughts and crosses on Twitter, but over in La Liga, they’ve had had a better idea. 

YouTuber Ibai Llanos came up with a plan of a 20-team FIFA tournament and Marca have now listed the finer details on who will be representing each team, in order of their current standings in the table:

Barcelona: Sergi Roberto

Real Madrid: Marco Asensio

Sevilla: Sergio Reguilon

Real Sociedad: Adnan Januzaj

Getafe: Jason Remeseiro

Atletico Madrid: Marcos Llorente

Valencia: Carlos Soler

Villarreal: Manu Morlanes

Granada: Jose Antonio Martinez

Athletic Club: Gorka Guruzeta

Osasuna: Ruben Garcia

Real Betis: Borja Iglesias

Levante: Carlos Clerc

Alaves: Lucas Perez

Real Valladolid: Pedro Porro

Eibar: Edu Exposito

Celta Vigo: Kevin Vazquez

Real Mallorca: Alex Pozo

Leganes: Aitor Ruibal

Espanyol: Adri Embarba

We can’t wait for a rather unconventional El Clasico between Marco Asensio and Sergi Roberto. 

Nobody knows whether the duo’s skills on the console are on par with their on-field abilities, so there’s a very real possibility the table is going to look very different to reality. 

Perhaps we’ll have Eibar storming to the title through the thumbs of Edu Exposito with Real Madrid going down – who knows. 

Or maybe Marcos Llorente will take heart from his last game in real life when his brace knocked Liverpool out of the Champions League. 

There are certainly worse ways to spend this period of isolation and uncertainty.
