Joao Felix scored a perfect 10 FC Rating to league La Liga's Team of the Week for round nine.

The Portuguese scored two and set up another as Atletico looked impressive in the 4-0 win over Cadiz.

Lionel Messi (9.0) was given a rare rest from the starting XI in Barcelona's 5-2 win over Betis, but still came on to effectively change the game. He scored two goals, and also played a huge part in Antoine Griezmann's (7.8) goal with a delightful dummy inside the box, with the Frenchman also making the Team of the Week despite missing a penalty.

In the craziest game of the weekend, Valencia defeated Real Madrid 4-1 after receiving three penalties in the game. Carlos Soler (8.7) converted all three for a hat-trick from the penalty spot, though he was lucky that he scored one which had to be retaken after he missed the original.

Marcos Llorente (8.2) recorded a goal and an assist for Atletico, and makes up the midfield trio along with Manu Trigueros (8.5) of Villarreal.

Two Atletico centre-backs in Jose Gimenez (7.9) and Mario Hermoso (7.7) feature in the centre-back positions, and are joined by Carlos Clerc (8.6) of Levante at left-back and Barcelona's Sergi Roberto (8.6) at right-back.

Granada may have lost 2-0 away at Real Sociedad, but the scoreline would have been a lot worse if not for the efforts of Angel Jimenez (8.3), who made seven saves for the away side.
