Real Madrid have done an incredible season winning the double with La Liga, and the Champions League. This was a very difficult task, because Los Blancos had not won La Liga in the last five years and they are the first team who claimed for second time in a row the Champions League title. Now it’s the moment to evaluate the performance of the players during the season 2016-2017.

Lucas Vázquez has been a very important player in the great year of Real Madrid, despite he didn’t have too many minutes during the season. The Galician winger is an example for all the players who usually are on the bench, because his behavior is amazing and whenever Zidane gave him the chance to play, his performances was very good, being the player who runs more kilometers per game.

Real Madrid’s youngster has played many games with the unusual players, but when Bale’s has been injured, Lucas or Isco replaced him in the right wing. We can highlight of Lucas his verticality, intensity and speed.

One of the key moments of his career was when Lucas shot the first penalty in the Champions League final in Milan against Atlético Madrid, proving that he has the confidence to shot an important penalty in a shoot out. However, Zidane decided not to include him in the Champions League final list of last season, where he had to watch the game from the stands of the Principality Stadium of Cardiff with two player who left the team, James and Pepe.

Lucas played many games in the last regular season being a player who entered the pitch several times from the bench, with the aim of revolutionize the matches. He played 33 games in La Liga (21 from the bench), 10 in Champions League and 4 in la Copa del Rey, adding a total of 4 goals in the three competitions.

We can say that it has been a good season for Lucas Vázquez, but it looks like the Spanish winger wants to have a superior role in the squad and that’s very difficult because Real Madrid have the most complete squad at Europe.
