1) AUGUSTO FERNANDEZ (ATLETICO MADRID) – 7.59

Augusto was a strong presence at the heart of the Atletico midfield, stopping Real Madrid’s creative talents play, as Diego Simeone’s men wrapped-up a 1-0 victory over their city rivals at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Argentina international, who has become a lynch-pin in the side since making the switch from Celta Vigo in January, frustrated Zinedine Zidane’s side by breaking up play and releasing his team’s attacking stars.

2) LIONEL MESSI (BARCELONA) – 7.48

Valora regular Messi reached the 30-goal mark for an eighth consecutive season with a superb equalising free-kick as Barcelona strengthened their grip on the La Liga title with a 2-1 home win over Sevilla.

The Argentine magician, who hit 58 goals last season as the Catalan giants went on to do the treble, played a key role in Luis Enrique side’s victory at the Nou Camp.

3) MATIAS NAHUEL (VILLARREAL) – 7.41

The Spain under-21 wide-man helped the Yellow Submarine continue their hot pursuit of Champions League football next term with a 3-0 rout over Levante, closing the gap on Real Madrid to two points.

The 19-year-old was a constant threat all afternoon, twisting and turning from wing positions to create space for Villarreal’s forward talent.

4) LEO BAPTISTAO (VILLARREAL) – 7.38

The 23-year-old Brazilian forward, who is on loan from Atletico Madrid, hit the first goal in the Yellow Submarine side’s 3-0 home success over Levante.

Baptistao, who has also enjoyed loan spells at Real Betis and Rayo Vallecano, moved in-field from a wide position before firing a shot past the goalkeeper from an acute angle.

5) PEDRO BIGAS (LAS PALMAS) – 7.32

The versatile Las Palmas star netted the only goal of the game as his team secured their first away victory of the season against Eibar.

The 25-year-old headed home his first goal for the Yellows on the stroke of half-time from a corner as the Islanders controlled the action.
