Rafinha (9.7) was the best player in La Liga this weekend after scoring and generally putting in an excellent outing against Mallorca.

He is joined in the forward line by Luis Suarez (8.2), who scored one and set up another for Barcelona in the draw with Real Sociedad, and Karim Benzema (7.8), who scored a 95th minute equaliser for Real Madrid against Valencia.

In midfield, Saul Niguez (8.3) earns a place after scoring for Atletico, while Jose Campana (7.9) and Edu Exposito (8.1) impressed for Levante and Eibar respectively.

Kieran Tripper (8.2) bounced back from his missed penalty in the Champions League a week ago to record an assist for Alaro Morata, while Ruben Duarte (7.8) features on the opposite full-back position.

Gerard Pique (7.6) was solid enough for Barcelona, and partners Inigo Martinez (7.5) after his clean sheet for Athletic.

Despite losing against Atletico, Sergio Herrera (7.4) is in between the sticks as he made seven saves to stop Los Colchoneros racking up more than the two goals.
