REAL MADRID MIDFIELDER CASEMIRO TOPS SKY SPORTS' LA LIGA POWER RANKINGS
Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro has topped the Sky Sports La Liga Power Rankings this week.
Real scraped a 3-2 win at the Bernabeu against a Malaga side who had lost nine games out of 12 going into the game.
The visitors cancelled out goals from Karim Benzema (No 69, up 81 places) and table-topper Casemiro, before Cristiano Ronaldo (No 53, up 32 places) converted his own rebounded penalty.
With no La Liga player hitting notable, consistent form, it was all change at the top of the Power Rankings chart with seven players breaking into the top 10.
Girona winger Portu (No 2, up 14 places) almost claimed top spot after scoring in stoppage time during both halves to claim a 2-2 draw at Real Betis.
Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann (No 4, up 120 places) broke a six-game goal drought in La Liga with two goals and an assist during a 5-0 thrashing at Levante - claiming a league-high 5,760 Power Ranking points from matchday 13 alone.
Real Sociedad striker Willian Jose (No 7, up 11 places) scored a first-half equaliser against Las Palmas and former Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj (No 5, up 55 places) put Sociedad 2-1 up after the break before Jonathan Viera (No 26, up 94 places) salvaged a point for the visitors.
Valencia hosted Barcelona on Sunday and almost moved within one point of the league leaders after Rodrigo (No 13, up one place) broke the deadlock - but Barca left-back Jordi Alba (No 9, up 20 places) latched onto an exquisite Lionel Messi (No 10, no move) pass to level the scores.
The game produced a controversial moment, when a Messi shot was spilled by Neto (No 3, down one place) and crossed the goal line - but was missed by officials.
The Power Rankings methodology reflects a player's performance over the last five matchdays by awarding points to players for 32 different stats.
