Iago Aspas was the best player of the weekend in Spain as he leads a low-scoring La Liga Team of the Week.

In round 10 of Primera Division action, nobody scored higher than 8.0 in their respective matches, with Aspas leading with a score of 7.9 following his goal and overall outing against Sevilla in a match which Celta lost 4-2.

Joining the Celta striker in attack is Manu Vallejo (7.7), who helped Valencia get back into the game with a goal in the 2--2 draw against Alaves, and Alex Berenguer (7.6), who was the star of the show as Athletic put in one of their best performances of the season to defeat Betis 4-0.

Vallejo's Valencia team-mate Carlos Soler (7.6) features in midfield as he enjoys a continued rich vein of form.

Sevilla's Fernando (7.8) and Elche's Ivan Marcone (7.7) make up the rest of the three-man midfield.

None of the traditional big hitters from Barcelona or Real Madrid make the XI this week, with the former being defeated by Atletico and the latter drawing away at Villarreal.

However, there is a spot for Jordi Alba (7.4), who was the Blaugrana's best performer from left-back.

Two Athletic players in Inigo Martinez (7.7) and Ander Capa (7.7) feature in defence after the impressive clean sheet and result versus Betis.

David Garcia (7.6) got on the scoresheet as Osasuna drew 1-1 with Huesca.

In goal is David Soria (7.8), who didn't concede for Getafe away at Eibar, and made four saves to ensure that the clean sheet was recorded.
