Fati stars for Barca; Villarreal frustrates Real

Barcelona’s Ansu Fati made the perfect return after 10 months out through injury by scoring in a 3-0 victory over Levante on Sunday.

On Saturday, Real Madrid failed to capitalise on Atletico Madrid’s shock defeat by bottom club Alaves as it was held to a goalless draw by a determined Villarreal.

Dropped points for Spain’s leading pair allowed Sevilla to make up some ground at the top, with Julen Lopetegui’s side beating Espanyol 2-0 to jump above Atletico and into second.

Real Madrid could have gone five points clear by beating Villarreal but settled for a three-point lead after a scruffy performance.
