This was a rare week in La Liga- a round in which Messi scored two goals for Barcelona, but still ended up on the losing side (it’s NEVER happened in Barca’s history before). Betis also became the first team to score four at the Nou Camp against the Catalan giants since Deportivo in 2003.
Marc Ander Ter Stegen became the most capped German goalkeeper in La Liga in this round, surpassing the previous record of 91 set by Bodo Illgner.
