CM Dani Parejo
From a new star to a familiar face. If you have watched LaLiga over the past decade, then you are undoubtedly familiar with the work of Dani Parejo. Now on rivals Villarreal after a storied spell with Valencia, Parejo remains one of the best midfielders in the world at commanding a match, and that should be an even scarier matchup for Juventus than even the electric Danjuma.
Parejo will be Villarreal’s best player with Moreno injured. He has six assists this season with a pair of key passes per game. This is a man who can make any pass and is extremely difficult to dispossess.
AM Giovani Lo Celso
A versatile chess piece as a playmaker in the attack, Giovani Lo Celso is back in LaLiga after an unsuccessful period with Tottenham Hotspur. But don’t let Lo Celso’s struggles in the more visible Premier League fool you, the Argentine midfielder/forward is a serious talent. He just didn’t fit whatever the heck Spurs were trying to do with him.
Creative and capable of scoring from anywhere, Lo Celso was just about world-class at Real Betis, and he is already showing signs of a return to stardom in Spain for the Yellow Submarine.
Lo Celso had two key passes, four dribbles completed, and a foul drawn in BOTH of his first two starts for Villarreal against Granada and Real Madrid.
