Casemiro vs Guti comparison
Real Madrid's crucial 1-0 win over Espanyol came courtesy of a Casemiro goal set up by a magnificent Karim Benzema backheel through the legs of an opposition defender.
The backheel assist immediately threw up memories of Guti's spectacular assist for Benzema himself vs RC Deportivo back in 2009-2010, starting up a debate on social media as to which was better. Guti congratulated the French striker while sharing a photo of the piece of skill from a decade ago that they were involved in together.
Villarreal have had a lot to celebrate this past week, beyond their strong form on the pitch. Club captain Bruno Soriano made an emotional return against Sevilla after three years out injured. He is in good company at the club in that sense.
Santi Cazorla returned last season for the club after a two-year injury hell which many believed would end his career, while goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo has suffered and recovered from four ACL injuries.
The weekend marked World Pride and clubs across La Liga celebrated the occasion on social media.
