With one half of the La Liga season done and dusted, here are the worst/most disappointing players (aka Flop XI) from the 17/18 La Liga season as voted by fans in Spanish newspaper Marca. Please note that this flop XI is for the first half of the 2017/18 season.
Not surprisingly, the list is dominated by Real Madrid players, with four of them (Achraf, Marcelo, Benzema and Ronaldo), in the XI. The list also contains two Las Palmas players (Chichizola and Lemos), again no surprise given that LPA have the worst defensive record in the league, and one each from Atletico, Alaves (Zinedine Zidane’s son Enzo), Valencia, Villarreal and Barcelona
