Luis Suárez completed a month of spectacular December and turned into the best player of LaLiga​ in these 31 days. The charrúa was 'on fire' until before navidad and expected that it was key in this slope of January, but his injury changed the plans of the FC Barcelona completely. The culés are seeing forced to live are the arietta and in his absence have lost the leadership against a Real Madrid that has based his mejoría in the defence.

Improve in the defensive appearance has cost him to the whites to plant three points above the blaugrana and depend on yes same for the achievement of the championship. Besides, a footballer of the Madrid has turned into the best of LaLiga in this past month of January precisely for avoiding goals and defeats. Thibaut Courtois has been appointed the MVP of January in the Spanish domestic competition sucediendo to Suárez.

The Madrid has contested three parties in January and the Belgian only has fit a goal between all they. Against the Getafe, in the Coliséum Alfonso Pérez, the merengues won 0-3; against the Seville, home, the ones of Zidane won 2-1 and the ex of Chelsea received a goal of Luuk of Jong; and in front of the Valladolid the madridistas imposed by an adjusted 0-1. Courtois Was key in all and each one of the parties when showing safe and save several goals that seemed sung.

The international by Belgium has received only 11 goals in the 20 crashes that has contested with the elastic white this campaign in League. The Madrid carries 14 against, but these four put them to him to Areola. The group madridista is the less goleado of the competition, above the Athletic of Madrid, that carries 15 against, and the Athletic Club, that adds 19. The big paper of Courtois, the one of Ferland Mendy and the one of Casemiro in defence, are being keys to have these numbers.

LaLiga Wanted to centre in the defence in January

LaLiga, after rewarding to Suárez in December and nominate also to Ángel Rodríguez beside him, has wanted to signal in January to players netamente defensive. In addition to Courtois, that did with the award, the others nominated were Sergio Herrera, the goalkeeper of Osasuna, and David López, defensive midfield player or head office of the RCD Espanyol. In a month in which neither Leo Messi neither Karim Benzema have stood out, in LaLiga opted for fixing in what it occurs backwards.

The '10' of the Barça, by the way, only annotated a goal in January and did not deliver any assistance. The 'Pichichi' of the competition is in a 'mini crisis' goleadora since it began the 2020, but will not take in surpassing it. The '9' of the Madrid, that pursues to the Argentinian in the fight for being maximum goleador of the competition, did not mark neither a solo so much neither gave any pass of goal in January and neither goes through his best moment. Courtois Has taken advantage of of this and of the absence of Suárez to carry this prize.
