After a week in Europe in which LA Liga sides dominated while their counter-parts from England struggled in Europe, LA Liga resumed with his normal glamour as Real Madrid again torn-apart their opposition. On the other hand and not too far from Real Madrid in the League table, Barcelona got their pursuit to the LA LIGA title back on track as new-signing Luis Suarez made the most of his opportunity. Reigning Champions missed the opportunity of Valencia’s goal-less draw as they themselves were undone by a Real Sociedad side.
Here are the top 5 performers from this week in LA LIGA.
Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid)
After an un-characteristic of his performance against Liverpool in mid-week in which his scoring form took a halt, Ronaldo resumed his goal-scroing after providing two assists to his team mates against a vibrant Rayo side. Although the score-line is flattering for Real, still Ronaldo’s performance was the main factor why Real thumped Rayo. His goal tally for the season has gone up to 18 goals with 5 assists to his name as well.
Toni Kross (Real Madrid)
Lots of questions were raised upon his arrival not only from his former bosses but also from within the Real Madrid ranks as his job was to replace a legendary figure in Xabi Alonso. However, just like his predecessor at this job now excelling in Bayern Munich colors, a 30 yard goal which came after a wonderful assist to Gareth Bale suggested Toni Kroos is also finding it easy to fill in the boots of Xabi Alonso.
Luis Suarez (Barcelona)
After making a slow start to his Barcelona career in which both he and his new employers struggled for a fortnight, Luis Suarez came got his majestical touch back against Almeria away from home. After conceding a goal just before half time, Luis Enrique subbed Suarez at the interval and for good. With his 2 late assists to Neymar and Jordi Alba both of which were his trade-mark, Suarez opened his Barcelona account of assists in good fashion.
Carlos Vela (Real Sociedad)
A former Arsenal player now trying his luck in LA Liga, Vela made the most of his opportunity to showcase his talent against one of the best in business. Against an Athletico Madrid side which is known for its physical presence in defense, Vela refused to be kicked out of the game as he opened the scoring just 5 minutes after Atletico scored, to pave the way for a memorable comeback that lifted Real Sociedad out of the relegation zone on goal difference.
