Since recovering from his serious injury, the forward made an outstanding contribution in the closing stages of LaLiga.
Marco Asensio has been a wonderful addition to Zidane's squad in the final few games of the LaLiga campaign. His return to the pitch following an intense recovery program to come back from the injury he suffered last July has been remarkable. The forward's contributions in the team's incredible run post-lockdown are quite something: he played nine of ten games, scoring three goals and making one assist.

It was simply a perfect return. The first ball he touched against Valencia ended up in the back of the net, before he went on to assist Benzema to score the third in the same match. Since then, he has taken part in every one of the team's games accept the clash with Espanyol on match day 32. Other standout performances include the game against Alavés at home, when he got the second goal of the game, and the clash with Leganés at Butarque, where he scored the final goal for the LaLiga champions.
