La Liga review: Barcelona back on top

Sajith B Warrier

Bengaluru, October 22: There is new team at the top of La Liga table and it is a familiar face.

Reigning champions Barcelona jumped into top spot with an impressive 3-0 victory away at Eibar.

For the first time ever, Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Antoine Griezmann all scored in the same game for Barcelona.

Meanwhile, Frenkie de Jong also stood out and was even applauded off the pitch by the Eibar fans when substituted.

With MSL Media inputs, looks at some of the other highlights of an action-packed La Liga weekend which saw a very special comeback.

Luuk de Jong off the mark

The other De Jong in La Liga also had a weekend to remember.

Sevilla's summer signing Luuk de Jong scored his first goal for his new club and it was an important one, as his late effort secured a narrow 1-0 win over Levante.

Mallorca's night

Mallorca hosted Real Madrid for the first time since dropping out of the top flight in 2012. A special occasion for the newly promoted islanders became extra special as they secured an unlikely 1-0 win over Zinedine Zidane's side.

And, as sign of just how solid this 'new' Mallorca project is, the only goal of the game was scored by Lago Junior, who's been at the club throughout their journey from the third tier to La Liga.

Epic draw

Following their international break heroics, Saul and Rodrigo's sides then met over the weekend at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Injury kept Rodrigo out of the action, but he will have cheered as Dani Parejo's wonderful free-kick was able to cancel out a Diego Costa penalty for a 1-1 draw between Atletico Madrid and Valencia.

Rossi is back

Villarreal's all-time top scorer Giuseppe Rossi is back training with the club as he looks to return to full fitness.

Rossi, who scored 82 goals for the Yellow Submarine between 2007 and 2013, has long-suffered injury problems but is looking to follow in the footsteps of Santi Cazorla by rehabbing with the club and then returning to action.
