Another matchday has come and gone. LaLiga Santander rolls on with the next instalment of the competition set to kick off this Tuesday. Before that, however, we take a moment to look at the LaLiga Fantasy MARCA Matchday 5 Best XI.
This week's XI is heavily influenced by Sevilla FC, contributing three players to the team following their 6-2 drubbing of Levante UD, including the Player of the Matchday Ben Yedder. The total score of the Best XI is 159 points.
Between the sticks in this matchday's Best XI is Sevilla's Tomas Vaclik. The goalkeeper stopped a Levante penalty which would have put the home side level at 2-2, an intervention which turned out to be crucial for his team to go on and win the game. His exploits earned him a total of 11 points.
Atletico Madrid's Lucas Hernandez is the defender who amassed the most points this matchday (13). The Frenchman produced an exceptional performance, putting in stints at both centre-back and left-back in his team's 2-0 victory over Getafe CF. He is accompanied in the defensive line by Valencia CF's Gabriel Paulista and R. Valladolid CF's Nacho, who both shone in their teams' away draws this matchday with 12 and 11 points respectively.
The midfield of this week's XI once again includes the D. Alaves player Ibai Gomez (16 points) after netting a brace in the Basque outfit's 5-1 win at Rayo Vallecano, although the player with the most points in the middle of the park was Sevilla's Pablo Sarabia, who accumulated a whopping 22 after his brilliant display against Levante. They are accompanied by fellow midfielder's Raul Garcia of Athletic (13) and Thomas Lemar of Atletico (14), who also found the back of the net this matchday.
The front line of the Best XI is led by the Player of the Matchday Ben Yedder, the author of a hat-trick against Levante with a total of 23 points. He is joined by Cristhian Stuani (12), who netted a brace in Girona FC's draw against FC Barcelona at the Camp Nou, and Iago Aspas (12), who got on the scoresheet again for RC Celta and continues his impressive run of form.
