The best player in the Spanish Primera Division this weekend was Luka Modric (8.8), who assisted two goals and scored a beauty himself in Real Madrid's 3-1 victory over Real Sociedad. He is joined in the XI by team-mates Karim Benzema (8.6), who recorded one goal and one assist, and Eden Hazard (8.6), who completed more dribbles than anyone else in Spain in this round of fixtures.

Alaves are also represented by three players in our XI, with Joselu (8.8) included in the frontline after his two late goals to seal the 2-0 win versus Eibar. Goalkeeper Fernando Pachecho (8.5) made seven saves to secure the clean sheet, while Ximo Navarra (7.6) was solid just ahead in defence.

Barcelona were in trouble 1-0 down against Leganes, but Lionel Messi (8.3) was once again their best player as he hauled his team back from the brink to win 2-1, with his assist for Luis Suarez coming for the vital equaliser 53 minutes in.

Ruben Rochina (8.5) makes the cut in attacking midfield after his stunning 40-yard goal for Levante in their 2-1 win over Mallorca, while team-mate Jorge Miramon (8) is included at right-back after assisting both goals.

Alex Moreno (8.2) of Betis and German Sanchez (7.3) of Granada make up the defence.
