Ronaldo may yet again be the face of FIFA

La Liga has been often described as the most technically compelling league, even though it lacks the intensity of the Premier League. Usually, the title is decided between two teams - Real Madrid and Barcelona although recently, Atletico Madrid has provided a bit of competition to the two giants but have not been able to break their dominance.

Barcelona and Real Madrid are two of the most utilized teams in FIFA as well. In online matches or even in career mode, the two Spanish teams are popular because of the high ratings assigned to their players.

There are teams and players in the Spanish league who have shone this season, a little more than the others. Some of these players have been highly influential in their respective teams' good form. La Liga has thrown some surprise packages as well, in the form of Real Betis and Girona FC.

Here is a look at the achievements of five of these individuals whose performances have helped their clubs and who merit recognition both in the real and the virtual world. 

#5 Christian Stuani (Girona FC)

Premier League fans, remember Stuani? The same Uruguayan who scored a beauty on Matchday 2 of the 2016/17 season and then disappeared from our TV screens never to appear again.

He was part of a Middlesborough side that struggled to score in the 2016/17 Premier League season and had a hand in only four goals in his twenty-three appearances for the Riverside club.

Stuani reappeared in Spain, a year later, and surprisingly, has done amazingly well for his new side Girona. The Catalan side was promoted to the top division just this season and have been the surprise package, battling sides for a Europa League spot.

Much of Girona's success can be owed to the experienced Uruguayan who has scored 18 goals in just 33 shots. 9 of his 18 goals have been headers.

Stuani has stunned fans with his goalscoring exploits and was rated 76 in FIFA 18. Given his current form, this should definitely increase for FIFA 19, an overall total of 80 will do just fine for the Uruguayan.
