The star of the show in this week's round of Liga action was Lionel Messi (10), who was sensational as Barcelona defeated Celta 4-1. The maestro scored a hat-trick of dead balls, with a penalty followed by two almost identical free-kicks from around 25 yards. His exploits earned him a perfect 10.
Beside him in the forward three is Vitolo (8.7), who assisted a goal for Alvaro Morata in Atletico's win over Espanyol. He should have had more as he created two additional 'big' goalscoring chances, only for his team-mates to pass up the opportunies. Karim Benzema (8.6) gets in thanks to his two goals in Real Madrid's victory over Eibar.
