LaLiga brought with it plenty of goals this weekend, with the likes of Celta Vigo, Getafe, Espanyol and Real Betis rattling home four goals apiece.

So, let's take a look at who starred across 10 entertaining fixtures.

Real Madrid and Barcelona both picked up three points for their troubles, but it was elsewhere that impressed, with Sunday, in particular, throwing up a lot of high-scoring fixtures. Eibar conceded four, with Levante going against the grain of their usual organised performances by letting in the same in Seville.

Valencia triumphed in a hard-fought contest against Real Sociedad, while Fran Escriba lost his job after Villarreal were roundly trounced. Entertainment and goals were certainly at an unprecedented high outside of the big two.
