Round 11 of La Liga was exciting. The mid-week tour turned the table around, and Barcelona is still the leader after one week. Both Real Madrid and Barcelona scored five goals and had a perfect performance.
Barcelona 5-1 Valladolid
Lionel Messi is back, and Barcelona could win with high performance. Barcelona scored five very admirable goals, and Messi was indeed the best. After the match, La Liga named Lionel Messi as “King of the match.” Argentinian player scored beautiful free-kick, and as it seems, it was his 50th career free kicks. Barcelona’s striker scored 44 free-kicks for Barcelona and 6 for Argentina.
Match started with a goal from Lenglet. French defender could score only after Messi’s beautiful assist. In the first half, Leo could make another wonder. A free-kick from Messi was indeed a piece of masterpiece. Valladolid keeper could not even react.
Lionel Messi continued his brilliant performance in the second half. Argentinian scored another goal and gave another fantastic assist to Luis Suarez.
Real Madrid 5-0 Leganes
Another brilliant performance from the royal club. Zidane’s players could do everything on the pitch. As it seems, Toni Kroos could not stop scoring. German player scored a decisive goal against Galatasaray in Turkey, and he scored again on Wednesday.
Rodrygo scored another goal for Real Madrid. Brazilian has now two goals during his Los Blancos career, and slowly, Vinicius became an unwanted player for the coaching staff.
We should also mention an interesting fact about Sergio Ramos. Real Madrid captain scored another goal for Real Madrid, but it had a significant meaning. Los Blancos captain scored a goal in his 16th consecutive seasons. Sergio Ramos repeated the record of Lionel Messi.
Atletico and Sevilla drop two points
Simeone’s team could not win away match against Alaves. Atletico played a horrible first half in Alaves but could score a goal in the second half. Morata was successful and opened the score-sheet. Unfortunately for Atletico Madrid fans, Alaves could score late goals and got one point.
At the same time, Sevilla could not win the match against Valencia. Same scenario here – Sevilla was playing correctly for 80 minutes, and the team was leading the game. On 82nd minute, Valencia could score header goal, and Sevilla dropped two crucial points in championship challenge.
La Liga standings after 11 rounds
Barcelona is still the leader for the La Liga table after a one-week absence. Valverde’s team had 22 points, while Los Blancos has scored only 21 goals with the same amount of points.
