Here are ten of the top stories, including all the drama of the Seville derby.


SEVILLA EDGE THE DERBY AGAINST REAL BETIS

One of the most passionate fixtures in Spanish football took place on Sunday night at the Estadio Benito Villamarn, with Sevilla running out narrow 2-1 winners over hosts Real Betis. The visitors took home the three points thanks to Luuk de Jong's second-half strike. They meet in LaLiga Santander again in March, but until then the bragging rights belong to Sevilla.


ANOTHER HAT-TRICK FOR MESSI

Lionel Messi bagged a record-equalling 34th LaLiga Santander hat-trick in Barcelona's 4-1 in over RC Celta on Saturday night. He now stands equal with Cristiano Ronaldo who else? atop the historical hat-trick charts.


AGUIRRE'S RETURN TO LALIGA

Javier Aguirre is back in Spanish football with CD Leganes. The Mexican had previously coached in LaLiga Santander with Osasuna, Atltico de Madrid, Real Zaragoza and Espanyol. His latest stint in Spain got off to a good start as Los Pepineros earned an impressive 1-1 draw with then joint-top side Real Sociedad.


OSCAR GARCIA IS ALSO BACK IN LALIGA

There's also new coach in the dugout at RC Celta, scar Garca. And where better to make your managerial debut than at the Camp Nou, where he came through the ranks as a player and was a coach in the academy. His side, unfortunately, weren't able to avoid a 4-1 defeat.


KUBO OPENS HIS ACCOUNT IN STYLE

Takefusa Kubo scored his first LaLiga Santander goal with a remarkable striker against Villarreal on Matchday 13. Big things are expected of the 18-year-old Japan international and he's making an early impression while on loan at RCD Mallorca this term. He has already contributed with his overall play and now he has a goal to his name as well.


THE TOP SCORER IN LALIGA SANTANDER? KARIM BENZEMA

Karim Benzema netted twice in Real Madrid's 4-0 victory at Eibar on Saturday, meaning that the Frenchman is top of the scoring charts in LaLiga Santander. With nine goals already this campaign, he leads Lionel Messi, Loren Morn and Gerard Moreno, who have all scored eight times so far.


MIXED RESULTS FOR SPAIN'S EUROPEAN TEAMS

There was European action on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and seven Spanish clubs were involved. In the Champions League, Barcelona drew against Slavia Prague, while Real Madrid beat Galatasaray, Valencia defeated Lille and Atltico de Madrid lost away at Bayer Leverkusen. There were mixed results in the Europa League too as Sevilla conquered Dudelange and Espanyol won big against Ludogorets but Getafe falling to a narrow loss at FC Basel.


GUTI BACK IN SPANISH FOOTBALL

Real Madrid legend Guti hung up his boots in 2011 and he has been working in coaching since then, spending time as a youth coach at Real Madrid and as an assistant with Beikta in Turkey. Now, he's returned to Spain with Almera for his first Head Coaching role. His side currently sit third in LaLiga SmartBank, Spain's second tier.


EKAMBI IS THE PLAYER OF THE MONTH

The LaLiga Santander Player of the Month award for October was announced last week and Karl Toko Ekambi is the recipient, winning the prize for the first time in his career. With three goals in his four LaLiga Santander matches during October, the striker was one of the main reasons behind Villarreal's impressive run of form.


LALIGA SANTANDER PLAYERS DOMINATE SPAIN SQUAD

Robert Moreno has named his squad for the Spanish national team's November Euro 2020 qualifiers. The list is dominated by Spain-based players, with 13 called up from LaLiga Santander. Sergio Ramos, Ral Albiol, Jess Navas, Dani Carvajal, Iigo Martnez, Jos Luis Gay, Pau Torres, Sergio Busquets, Santi Cazorla, Sal iguez, lvaro Morata, Mikel Oyarzabal and Gerard Moreno all made the cut.

The Brazilian carried the ball into the box and messed up a chance, after which the Betis legend was seen on camera criticising the youngster's finishing.

"This is very bad," was the comment he made as he stood warming up on the sidelines, a comment captured by the cameras of Movistar.

"It was a comment that came out when it shouldn't have," he explained to Canal Sur Radio.

"It's not that he's a bad player, because he wouldn't be at Real Madrid if he was.

"I honestly felt so bad and I want to publicly apologise because he's 19 years of age, you know I'm not like that.

"He's a phenomenon and has a bright future.

"I didn't say it with any other intentions."

But while on the pitch chatting with teammate Ansu Fati, Firpo was approached by Barca assistant coach Jon Aspiazu and told he would not be playing, with Nelson Semedo taking his place.

The cameras caught his reaction, including him discussing his situation with Levante's Sergio Leon, a former Real Betis teammate.

The fullback from Real Betis has struggled to find a way into coach Ernesto Valverde's first team plans this season.

El Desmarque says a loan departure in January has been raised inside the club.

Thus far, Firpo has managed just four appearances for the Catalans.

As such, coaching and technical staff now believe the best option for the fullback would be for him to leave on-loan for the second-half of the season.

And while insisting he's happy in Seville, Fekir says a return to OL cannot be ruled out.

"Yes why not?! Lyon is my heart club," he told Telefoot.

"It's in a corner of my mind. For now I'm at Betis and I'm fine but why not later...?"

The midfielder featured in Saturday's 0-0 draw with former club Real Madrid.

He said, "I've spent several years working on fitness and the physical side of my game. At Real Sociedad, my game was more positional, waiting to receive the ball. At Betis, it's much looser. Now I feel much better, I still feel fresh on 90 minutes, I feel strong when I'm on the ball and I'm able to drop back and help the defence towards the end of the game. That's where I think I have made a big leap.

"We've been looking to find the ideal places for all of the team, adjusting things little by little so that we all feel comfortable. I struggled to enter play when I was playing out wide on the wing but since Fekir arrived, he likes to play in specific place. Now I have freedom to roam, I feel good physically so I can start and finish moves."

Butragueno was left frustrated by the use of VAR in Los Blancos' 0-0 draw at home to Real Betis on Saturday night, with a Zou Feddal handball the subject of much debate.

"We are confused about the decision that has been made," Butragueno said after the match.

"It's a play where the hand clearly interrupts the move and from there a decision was not made.

"I don't know why VAR goes in one direction and sometimes in another.

"It was understood with VAR that these kinds of situations were going to be solved with clarity, but it seems that is not [the case].

"You [have a situation where] the referee doesn't clearly see it and now there's another tool with people watching the game and they can provide them with extra information.

"We thought it was going to be a penalty; I thought it was going to be, but it wasn't."

The 26-year-old joined Los Verdiblancos from Lyon, having previously been linked with a wide range of top European clubs.

"I can understand that my decision to come to Seville was difficult to understand when you come from a club like Lyon, who play in the Champions League every year," Fekir told Telefoot.

"It could be a bit incomprehensible."

However, he insisted that a move to Betis and LaLiga Santander was ideal for him.

"I like facing up to challenges, even if they seem a bit crazy," Fekir explained.

"LaLiga is perhaps more suited to me than Ligue 1, it's more technical and focused on attacking."
