Levante held Sevilla to a 1-1 draw in Andalucia and had their goalkeeper Gustavo Munua to thank their for the point. The Uruguayan custodian made a flurry of saves in the match and denied the likes of Gary Medel, Manu Del Moral, Piotr Trochowski and Federico Fazio from open play, before keeping out an Alvaro Negredo spot-kick in the 87th minute.

Sergio Ramos has been a rock at the back for Real Madrid this season and he was once again a colossus for Real in the Clasico against Barcelona. The Spain international was arguably the best player on the pitch at Camp Nou in Los Blancos’ 2-1 win, as he kept Lionel Messi quiet and made a number of vital challenges and tackles.

Diego Godin
and Adil Rami were the other outstanding centre-backs in La Liga over the weekend. Godin headed in Atletico Madrid’s opener against Espanyol in a 3-1 home triumph and defended diligently, while Rami had a goal ruled out in Valencia’s 4-0 demolition of Real Betis and despite having not much to do, he was still a force to be reckoned with playing the ball forward from the deep.

Mesut Ozil buried his Clasico demons and had a very good game against Barcelona at Camp Nou. The Germany international's passes and vision were crucial to Madrid launching counterattacks against the Blaugrana, and his well-crafted ball for Ronaldo’s winner was world class. Santi Cazorla was once again the saviour for Malaga as the Andalusians kept up their chase for a top-four finish with a 1-1 draw against Osasuna in Pamplona, the Spain international finding the equaliser on 67 minutes from 25 yards.

Carlos Martins
’ run through the midfield and his subsequent pass for Franco Jara on 18 minutes proved to be the difference in Granada’s 1-0 home win against Getafe. Sergio Canales and Arda Turan turned on the style for Valencia and Atletico Madrid respectively in the attacking department. While Canales hit the post and created Sofiane Feghouli’s goal against Betis, Turan netted twice in the space of two second-half minutes in Atleti’s triumph over Espanyol, his first from a stunning overhead kick.

FORWARDS

Adrian COLUNGA
Sporting Gijon

Cristiano RONALDO
Real Madrid
TOTW Apps: 15

Cristiano Ronaldo has often been accused of not always turning up in the big games, but on Saturday evening he certainly did. The Portuguese forward’s runs down the left channel put the Barcelona defence under pressure throughout and his calmly taken goal on 73 minutes proved to be the eventual winner. Adrian Colunga was another striker in fine form over the weekend, as he created a number of chances for his Sporting Gijon team-mates in their 2-1 home win against Rayo Vallecano, and also hit the bar.
