All top teams played their League matches on Saturday because UEFA Champions League matchday two is back this week. La Liga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona did not shine last weekend and the same can be said about Bayern Munich in Bundesliga. Juventus won their match but Chelsea and Liverpool shared points. Today, we want to look at how nine world-class stars performed last weekend in Europe.
5. Messi, Suarez & Coutinho- Barcelona

Tottenham Hotspurs will feel this is a perfect time to play Barcelona. The Premier League side lost their UEFA Champions League opener against Inter Milan. They play a wounded Catalan side on Wednesday at Wembley.
La Liga defending Champions are struggling at the moment. They have failed to win their last three League matches against lower oppositions. Last weekend, Messi, Suarez, and Coutinho could not help the team at home against Athletic Bilbao. Munir scored late to rescue a point but something is wrong in their camp.
4. Bale, Griezmann & Benzema- Madrid Derby

Madrid derby ended goal-less At Santiago Bernabeu. Real Madrid wasted yet another opportunity to go top of La Liga after Barcelona dropped 2 points against Athletic Bilbao. Atletico Madrid made it difficult for the European Champions from the start to the end. Thomas Lemar was by far the best performer for Diego Simeone side. The match ended 0-0 which means two points dropped for the home side.
3. Eden Hazard- Chelsea (EPL)

Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard once again outshined Liverpool star, Mohamed Salah, when the two met for the second time in a week on Saturday evening. The Belgian had scored the winner last Wednesday in Carabao Cup to eliminate the Reds and in the weekend he scored a great goal once again. He was a constant menace for Jurgen Klopp defenders. He now has six goals in 7 matches in Premier League alone and Maurizio Sarri is promising more goals.
