In another important match, FC Barcelona came back to winning ways in the La Liga with a thumping 5-0 win over minnows Las Palmas.

It was a much-needed win after a disappointing 1-1 draw against Villarreal last week. Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi, as usual, architected the win for Barcelona.

The Uruguayan star scored a brace and Lionel Messi, Aleix Vidal and Arda Turan netted one each to guide the Catalan giants to a brilliant win.

Real Madrid's unbeaten streak finally comes to an end after 40 matches as they conceded a 2-1 defeat against Jorge Sampaoli's Sevilla.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored the opening goal for Real Madrid in the 69th minute from a penalty but an unfortunate own goal from captain Sergio Ramos restored parity. Stevan Jovetic scored the winning goal for the home side.
