Luuk de Jong off the mark
The other De Jong in La Liga also had a weekend to remember.
Sevilla's summer signing Luuk de Jong scored his first goal for his new club and it was an important one, as his late effort secured a narrow 1-0 win over Levante.
Mallorca hosted Real Madrid for the first time since dropping out of the top flight in 2012. A special occasion for the newly promoted islanders became extra special as they secured an unlikely 1-0 win over Zinedine Zidane's side.
And, as sign of just how solid this ‘new' Mallorca project is, the only goal of the game was scored by Lago Junior, who's been at the club throughout their journey from the third tier to La Liga.
Following their international break heroics, Saul and Rodrigo's sides then met over the weekend at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Injury kept Rodrigo out of the action, but he will have cheered as Dani Parejo's wonderful free-kick was able to cancel out a Diego Costa penalty for a 1-1 draw between Atletico Madrid and Valencia.
Rossi is back
Villarreal's all-time top scorer Giuseppe Rossi is back training with the club as he looks to return to full fitness.
Rossi, who scored 82 goals for the Yellow Submarine between 2007 and 2013, has long-suffered injury problems but is looking to follow in the footsteps of Santi Cazorla by rehabbing with the club and then returning to action.
