In the first Clasico of the season, Real Madrid defeated Barcelona 3-1 at the Camp Nou.

Key to that victory was Sergio Ramos (7.9), who fought through the pain of a previous injury to play in the match. As well as leading the team from defence, he scored from the penalty spot after winning a spotkick from a Clement Lenglet pull inside the box.

The best performer of the weekend, however, was Sergio Herrera (8.7) of Osasuna, who made fives saves and kept a clean sheet in the 1-0 win against Athletic.

Joining Ramos in defence are Alex Moreno (7.8) of Betis, Paulo Oliveira (8.0) of Eibar, and Anaitz Arbilla (8.6), also of Eibar.

Toni Kroos (8.2) was key in Real Madrid's victory, too, and also in midfield are Josan Fernandez (8.5) of Elche, and Real Sociedad's David Silva (8.0).

Perhaps the only bright spark from the Clasico from a Barcelona point of view was the performance of Ansu Fati (7.7) as the young wonderkid once again impressed in a big game. He scored the equaliser in the first half after Madrid took the lead.

Fidel (8.2) is also in the attack after his goal for Elche, as is Mikel Oiarzabal (7.8).
