This week's top five players in La Liga.

Each week, Sport360 will be bring you the best five players from La Liga, as chosen by you the supporters through our ValoraFutbol fan ratings tool.

YOU have direct influence on who appears in each Top Five so be sure to rate each weekend.

1) ARITZ ADURIZ (ATHLETIC BILBAO) – 7.80

He just can’t stop scoring.

The veteran Athletic Bilbao forward became the top-goalscoring Spaniard in La Liga this term as he netted his 18th of the season during the 2-1 home success over Real Betis.

Aduriz, 35, who is pushing for a return to the international fold with Spain, converted a penalty as the Basque side remain in fifth and in hot pursuit of European football next term.

2) PEDRO LEON (GETAFE) – 7.43

The former Real Madrid winger scored an invaluable first-half strike as the capital-based club defeated Deportivo La Coruna 2-0 to ease their relegation fears.

The Spaniard received the ball from Pablo Sarabia in the 41st minute on the right-hand side of the penalty area, and he showed skill and awareness to cut the ball onto his left foot and drill home into the corner.

Leon is somewhat of a talisman for Juan Esnáider’s side and they will need all of his experience between now and the end of the season if they are to starve off the threat of the drop.

3) GARETH BALE (REAL MADRID) – 7.32

Los Blancos kept neck and neck with fellow title contenders Barcelona and Atletico Madrid after the Welshman nodded home a late winner in the 1-0 victory at Real Sociedad.

Bale once again proved his aerial prowess and continued his rich goalscoring form, in the continued absence of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 26-year-old has netted 19 La Liga goals in 22 appearances this term.

4) ANDRES INIESTA (BARCELONA) – 7.25

Club captain and legend Iniesta helped his boyhood club secure a 2-0 away win at 10-man Real Betis and maintain their grip on the Spanish title.

Luis Enrique’s men won the points courtesy of goals from Ivan Rakitic and Luis Suarez and the 31-year-old was at the heart of the action in the midfield.

5) JONATHAN VIERA (LAS PALMAS) – 7.20

The 26-year-old Spaniard grabbed two goals for his team at the weekend, but it wasn’t enough as mid-table Las Palmas lost 3-2 at high-flying Celta Vigo.

Viera got the scoring underway after just three minutes with a delightful effort outside the penalty area before then doubling the away side’s lead just nine minutes later.

But from then on, it went from good to very bad for the Yellows as they relinquished their two-goal lead and lost the match.
