The season is almost over. Here are the all stars based on uniform number.

  1. Keylor Navas – He is a major factor for Madrid and might be their best player this season. Honorable mention to Sergio Rico.
  2. Diego Godín – He is glorious and leads the top defense in the league. Everyone else was a distant second.
  3. Felipe Luis– Glorious LB, he is very helpful on offense and defense. Pique was my number two choice.
  4.  Grzegorz Krychowiak – This number had some major competition. Ivan Rakitic, Aymeric Laporte and Sergio Ramos all were in the running.
  5. Shkodran Mustafi – Another super hard choice. Busquets is always in consideration here. Pedro Mosquera was everpresent for Depor.
  6. Koke – Clear winner here. Dani Alves played well, but not as important as Koke to his team. Nacho Camacho was #3 choice.
  7. Antoine Griezmann – Possible should have been Cristiano, but Griezmann was way more important to his team.
  8. Toni Kroos – I made up for the Madrid snub with this selection. Lots of good players wear #8.
  9. Luis Suarez – Amazing players wear the #9 as well. Luis Suarez has carried the load for Barça. Benzema was a close second followed by Gameiro.
  10. Messi – Of course. #2 was probably Nolito.
  11. Neymar – Near impossible selection. Can’t go wrong with Gareth Bale here either.
  12. Marcelo – Another Brazilian, Marcelo is always irritating and flops like the best of them, but he is super skilled and is deadly from long range.
  13. Jan Oblak – The best goalkeeper in the world right now.
  14. Fabian Orellana – Casemiro was good, but he is a part time player. Gabi was also in the mix, but Orellana is getting the call for his hard work on the ball. Mascherano was also in the final group.
  15. Iñaki Williams – We are now starting to get into the part-time players, there are some decent guys (Enzo Perez, Dani Carvajal, N’Zonzi) here, but I think Williams was my favorite #15 this season.

  16. Aythami
    – Terrible number, I probably should have stopped at #13, but there are some cool players below. Nobody really awesome here. Aythami had good CB stats, so he gets it.
  17. Cedric Bakambu – Suprising little number here. Bakambu scored some important goals this season so I picked him.
  18. Borja Baston  – Another tough call, but Borja was the Eibar MVP this season. I would have gone Denis Suarez is Borja didn’t exist.
  19. Luka Modric – Wow what a powerhouse number. I really wanted to pick Ever Banega here but just couldn’t pass up the superior player. Fajr, Muniain, and Yuri are other worthy guys. Switch to #16, guys.
  20. Aritz Aduriz – Has to be Aduriz here for being awesome at 34. So many good #2 choices though.
  21. Bruno – Lots of average guys here ,but I think Bruno stands out a little higher.
  22. Raul Garcia – Another tough lot, but Garcia had a little more success than the other finalists. Honorable Mention to Santi Mina, Konoplyanka and Isco.
  23. Diego Reyes – Nobody really stands out here, Coke was the safe choice, but I went the youngster. Bebe was an alternate as well.
  24. Eric Bailly – Another young defender gets the call here. It was tough to pick him over JM Gimenez, but I think Bailly had a more important role on his defensive line.
  25. Marco Asensio  – The last man on the roster usually gets #25, but this #25 is pretty good. Not a lot of competition here but some exciting prospects.

Best of the Rest: 

  • 27 – Adalberto Penaranda
  • 28 – Juanpi
