Last week Lionel Messi (10) was crowned as the official world's best player, again, for the sixth time, and it would appear he is already gunning for his seventh in 2020 as in the next game after receiving the award he scored a quite magnificent hat-trick against Mallorca. He is joined in the front three by team-mate Luis Suarez (8.9), who scored an outrageous backheel in the same game, and Kevin Gameiro (9.1), who bagged two versus Levante.

Sergio Busquets (8.6) is in midfield after his passing masterclass for Barca, while Joaquin (10) was fantastic for Betis, scoring three goals. They are joined by Oscar (9.2) of Leganes.

Real Madrid weren't particularly great in the 2-0 win over Espanyol, so had to rely on the solid performances of Raphael Varane (7.7) and Sergio Ramos (7.7) in the centre of defence.

A bright spark in another poor result for Atletico was Renan Lodi (8.1), while Victor Diaz (8.5) features in the opposite full-back position after his two assists for Granada.

In goal, Sergio Asenjo kept a clean sheet for Villarreal against his former club, Atletico, in a 0-0 stalemate.
