Barca on top, Atletico dropped to 5th: how La Liga top 10 looks like after gameweek 9
- The Catalans beat Eibar 3-0 on Saturday.
- Griezmann, Messi and Suarez put their names on the scoresheet.
- Both Madrid rivals dropped points over the weekend.
Despite a rather poor start to the 2019/20 La Liga season, Barcelona retained the top spot in the league after 9 matches. Ernesto Valverde's men returned to the top-flight action after a two-week international break on Saturday. Antoine Griezmann, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez secured a confident 3-0 victory over Eibar at Ipurua.
Real Madrid and their city rivals Atletico, on the other hand, both dropped points over the weekend. Zinedine Zidane's side was embarrassed at Mallorca as the newly-promoted side beat the Blancos 1-0 at Son Moix.
As things stand now, the Catalans will top the La Liga table at least until Granada's clash with Betis on Sunday. With next week's Clasico postponed because of the political tensions in Catalunya, the Grana could replace the Blaugrana on top of the table if they beat the Verdiblancos.
