1. IKER MUNIAIN (ATHLETIC BILBAO) – 8.4

Iker Muniain has long been one of Spain’s bright young talents, and he’s going from strength to strength at Athletic Bilbao.

And the midfielder had an outstanding game in Bilbao’s 5-1 win over Las Palmas, scoring two excellent goals, including a majestic free kick.

There is an excellent relationship between player and club but for how long can Bilbao hold onto their star when he continually catches the eye of some of Europe’s biggest clubs?

2. ISCO (REAL MADRID) – 8.4

When Isco plays like this, it’s hard to see how Real Madrid could even contemplate leaving him out of their side or potentially selling him.

With many of Los Blancos’ star players rested against Sporting Gijon ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League return leg against Bayern Munich, the back-ups had a chance to show their worth, and Isco delivered with two goals, including an injury-time winner that could prove crucial in the title race.

He also came up with an absolutely magical run that you can relive below.

3. ARITZ ADURIZ (ATHLETIC BILBAO) – 7.6

At this point, Aduriz’s age-defying antics have become routine.

The 36-year-old scored twice in the 5-1 rout of Las Palmas to take his tally to 14 league goals this season, and he’s showing no signs of slowing down.

Bilbao are in a fight to secure European football for next year, currently occupying the coveted sixth-place slot ahead of bitter rivals Real Sociedad. With Muniain and Aduriz in form, they’ll fancy their chances of holding on.

4. CLAUDIO BEAUVUE (CELTA VIGO) – 7.6

Celta Vigo made sure Tony Adams had a match to forget in his debut as Granada manager, easing to a 3-0 away win which could have been much worse.

Beauvue got a rare start as manager Eduardo Berizzo opted to rest his regulars ahead of this week’s crunch Europa League second leg, and the striker duly recorded his first league goal of the season in a man-of-the-match performance for the visitors.

The 29-year-old may have given his manager some food for thought ahead of that crucial away match in Genk on Thursday.

5. IBAI GOMEZ (DEPORTIVO ALAVES) – 7.6

Deportivo Alaves officially confirmed their presence in next season’s La Liga with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Villarreal, making relegation a mathematical impossibility.

This season was Alaves’ first in the top flight since they were relegated in 2006, after which they even had a brief spell in Spain’s third year, and not many expected the team to stay up.

Gomez has been among Alaves’ best players this season, and he set the team on their way to victory against Villarreal, lashing in a fierce shot to give Alaves victory.
