Barcelona's Lionel Messi has topped the Sky Sports La Liga Power Rankings for a fourth week running.
Messi was man-marked and nullified effectively by defender Pablo Maffeo during a 3-0 win at Girona and his commanding 6,000-point lead last week was slashed to 4,000 after the latest round of fixtures.
Atletico Madrid stopper Jan Oblak (No 2, no move) saved a penalty against Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday and kept his third clean sheet during a 2-0 win over Sevilla on Saturday - despite not having to make a single save.
Team-mates Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco (No 6, up seven places) and Antoine Griezmann (No 10, up 36 places) entered the top 10 after getting on the scoresheet in Madrid.
Valencia forwards Rodrigo (No 8, up 27 places) and Simone Zaza (No 3, no move) both scored during a a 3-2 win at Real Sociedad, with Zaza grabbing the match-winner after hitting a hat-trick past Malaga in midweek.
Celta Vigo midfielder Pione Sisto soared 33 places up the chart, scoring and assisting Pablo Hernandez during a 4-0 win at Eibar.
