Started a new Conversation Scrapp Data Using Goutte

Hello to everyone,

I am trying to scrap some data using Goutte. Currently, I have some methods where I can get TEAMS and PLAYERS.

Get Teams:

public function getTeams()
        $client = new Client();

        $teams = $client->request('GET', 'https://lol.gamepedia.com/LEC/2020_Season/Summer_Season');

        $team = $teams->filter('.tournament-roster-header')->each(function ($node) {

            if (!Team::where('name', $node->text())->exists()) {
                $team = new Team();

                $team->name = $node->text();
                $team->short_name = $node->text();



        return redirect()->back()->with('message', 'Teams imported.');

Get Players:

 public function getPlayers()

        $client = new Client();

        $players = $client->request('GET', 'https://lol.gamepedia.com/LEC/2020_Season/Summer_Season/Team_Rosters');

        $players->filter('.catlink-players')->each(function ($node) {

            if (!Player::where('name', $node->text())->exists()) {
                $player = new Player();
                $player->name = $node->text();


        return redirect()->back()->with('message', 'Players imported.');

In the players table, I have a column with team_id. Each Player belongs to a team. From https://lol.gamepedia.com/LEC/2020_Season/Summer_Season/Team_Rosters site, I can get all players. In such web, you can see there is also a COACH. The problem I am facing now is that I do not know how I could get the name of the TEAM from that page since is not inside the table.

Currently, I am using this method to assing a team to each PLAYER. It works well, the problem is that I am using another page to check the players, I am using the team page. The problem is that in the roster I do not have the COACH, only the players. So in my method I exclude the COACH at the moment. The team player page has a / where you can see who the COACH is but its not in the same position in every team page.

public function getTeam()
        $client = new Client();

        $teams_all = Team::all();

        foreach ($teams_all as $teamss) {
            $teams = $client->request('GET', 'https://lol.gamepedia.com' . $teamss->url);

            $teams->filter('.wikitable')->eq(0)->filter('tr')->each(function ($tr, $i) use ($teamss) {
                return $tr->filter('td')->eq(2)->each(function ($td, $i) use ($teamss) {
                    $team_id = Team::where('name', $teamss->name)->first();
                    if ($player = Player::where('name', trim($td->text()))->first()) {
                        if ($player->position != "Coach") {
                            $player = Player::where('name', trim($td->text()))->first();
                            $player->team_id = $team_id->id;

Is there any way I can use the page https://lol.gamepedia.com/LEC/2020_Season/Summer_Season/Team_Rosters and assing the team each player belongs too?

Thank you in advance.
