What a brilliant 2019/20 La Liga season we’ve witnessed.

Real Madrid got the better of Barcelona to win their first title in three years, while Atletico Madrid and Sevilla secured Champions League qualification.

The race for European places was exciting with just five points separating Real Sociedad in sixth and Athletic Club in 11th.

At the bottom end relegation went down to the wire but, ultimately, Leganes, Mallorca and Espanyol will be playing second-tier football next season.

While we know who the best teams were, who were the best players during the season?

Well, Lionel Messi (surprise, surprise) claimed the Pichichi Trophy for his 23 strikes. And the six-time Ballon d’Or winner has also been named in Marca’s La Liga Team of the Season.

But who else joins him?

Let’s take a look:

Goalkeeper | Thibaut Courtois | Real Madrid

Real conceded just 25 goals in the league this season and Courtois has completely transformed his career at the Bernabeu. He may not be a better goalkeeper than Jan Oblak but he fully deserves to be in this XI.

Defender | Felipe | Atletico Madrid

After signing from Porto last summer, the experienced Felipe has been extremely solid for Diego Simone’s well-drilled defensive unit.

34-year-old Ramos scored ELEVEN goals in La Liga this season and has captained his side to glory.

Midfielder | Casemiro | Real Madrid

Casemiro has had, without doubt, his finest season in the white of Real this campaign. He only missed three matches and is so important to Zinedine Zidane’s side.

Midfielder | Santi Cazorla | Villarreal

Who doesn’t love Santi Cazorla? The silky Spaniard was told he wouldn’t walk again and yet, here he is at the age of 35 bossing La Liga. He was superb for Villarreal, playing 35 games and scoring 11 goals. He’ll be missed after leaving for Al Sadd.

Midfielder | Lucas Ocampos | Sevilla

Out of nowhere, the Argentine produced an incredible season with 14 goals for Sevilla to help secure Champions League qualification.

Midfielder | Martin Odegaard | Real Sociedad

The 21-year-old might just be ready for first-team football at Real Madrid. He was brilliant for Real Sociedad as they finished sixth and qualified for the Europa League.

Forward | Gerard Moreno | Villarreal

Moreno fired an impressive 18 goals in 35 league games for the Yellow Submarine.

Forward | Karim Benzema | Real Madrid

32-year-old but Benzema still knows where the back of the net is. He found it 21 times in the league as he led his side to the title.
