This week was an odd one for the four biggest stars in Spain. Lionel Messi played a major role for Barcelona, while Neymar performed well as his partner. Cristiano Ronaldo was out of action, but Gareth Bale stepped up in his absence.
For Real Madrid it was a huge weekend. Los Blancos saw off visitors Elche 3-0 in a dominant display even without their biggest stars.
In this week's installment of the Neymar, Messi Bale, and Ronaldo watch, we will break down just how well the stars performed. Of course, Ronaldo will not be included as he did not feature for Los Blancos.
