Barcelona were ruthlessly brilliant against Betis and Atletico Madrid were jaw-droppingly bad against Valencia as La Liga returned after the international break.
There were debuts for Mason Greenwood and Sergio Ramos – the Sevilla defender’s was his second, 18 years after the first.
Meanwhile at the Bernabeu, Real Madrid won again to stay top with a Joselu header earning them the points.
Here are ten stand-out things from the weekend action in Spain, with a special mention for the linesman who didn't want Madrid wasting time.
Marathon man Bellingham now on ‘just’ five goals in five games
It was the first time he has failed to score but he so nearly made it six in five games on 90 minutes with a header that was saved.
Madrid were hanging on a bit at the end and referee's assistant Pau Norbert came on to the field of play at minute 83 to pass the ball back to Kepa Arrizabalaga.
The Bernabeu, interpreting the action as ensuring Madrid took kick quickly didn't like the gesture and he could be spoken to by Spain's Refereeing committee for the incident.
Joselu can get 20 goals
He’ll need to play the games and that might be difficult once Vinicius returns.
But the journeyman striker used to reach double figures at relegation threatened clubs.
Joselu can double his tally this season with better service.
He got the winner on Sunday.
This always happens
Valencia striker Hugo Duro has only scored 12 league goals in his career so far.
Five of them have come against Jan Oblak.
The 23-year-old centre-forward got two in the 3-0 win over Atletico Madrid.
This never happens
Atletico Madrid had not lost to Valencia in any of their last 17 meetings.
Only twice in the 23 times they had faced them in the Diego Simeone era had they lost to them.
