Here's the starting XI, with an image of the full squad below:
Jan Oblak (Atletico Madrid); Filipe Luis (Atletico Madrid), Diego Godin (Atletico Madrid), Javier Mascherano (Barcelona), Marcelo (Real Madrid); Sergio Busquets (Barcelona), Luka Modric (Real Madrid), Bruno Soriano (Villarreal); Lionel Messi (Barcelona), Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid), Luis Suarez (Barcelona).
LA LIGS TOTS
Wow. What’s most striking about the incredible starting XI is the 99-rated card awarded to Ronaldo.
It’s easy to see why the Portugal international has been given the best possible rating for a second successive term, of course, after scoring a remarkable 51 goals in 47 appearances for Real Madrid this season and steering them into the Champions League final with 16 strikes in the competition.
Just behind him in the rankings - and alongside him in a fearsome attacking trio - lie Messi and Suarez, whose upgraded cards boast 98 ratings.
The Uruguayan’s is arguably the more deserved after his 40 league goals helped Barca on to their second La Liga title in as many years, with a 99 shooting statistic entirely in keeping with just how clinical he’s been this season.
Teammate Neymar also features in the Team of the Season but only makes the bench, albeit with a ‘respectable’ 96 rated boost.
Antoine Griezmann and Karim Benzema were handed huge upgrades too, both seeing their original ratings of 84 and 86 respectively soar to 95.
Where the midfield is concerned, it comes as little surprise that Sergio Busquets and Luka Modric make the cut. The central pair are two of La Liga’s most consistent and talented midfielders and deserve their place in the starting XI.
Villarreal’s Bruno Soriano joins them after a similarly impressive campaign. To English fans, however, he’s best remembered for scoring an own goal against Liverpool in the Europa League semi-final second leg at Anfield.
And finally, even the deadly threesome of Ronaldo, Messi and Suarez would struggle to break down the Team of the Year’s impressive back line.
Atletico Madrid trio Jan Oblak (89), Filipe Luis (89) and Diego Godin (85) all feature as a result of their remarkable defensive record in La Liga, whilst Barcelona’s Javier Mascherano (89) and Marcelo (88) of Real were also included.
The Premier League’s Team of the Season was impressive, but La Liga’s has taken high ratings to a whole new level.
