Barcelona put three goals past Girona

Real returned to winning ways following their shock 1-0 defeat to Betis in midweek as two first-half goals from Ceballos in his maiden league start for the club sandwiched a Manu Garcia header for hosts Alaves.

Girona succeeded in stopping Barcelona star Lionel Messi from scoring.

On the field, there was much less controversy as Barca were rarely troubled after Aday Benitez turned Jordi Alba's wayward shot into his own net after just 17 minutes.

If only it could have avoided its own net as well.

Earlier, Diego Costa was an interested spectator as Atletico Madrid leapfrogged Sevilla into second thanks to goals from Yannick Carrasco and Antoine Griezmann in a 2-0 win at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Paul Merson predicts the scoreline of Stoke v Chelsea
Chelsea have been given as many red cards in their last five Premier League games (3) as they had in their previous 73. Hughes said Stoke face the prospect of hosting champions Chelsea with just one centre back available for selection.

It's been a flawless start to the season for Barcelona, and they'll be looking to extend those good feelings against Girona as they look to ruin the good feelings the smaller club has enjoyed so far in their first-ever La Liga season, and prove their dominance over Catalonia in the process.

The figures are all the more impressive given that it took Suarez nearly two months to break his duck in Catalonia and that his form has been erratic this season. Messi scored nine goals in the first five rounds.

Sergi Roberto's fine through-ball left Suarez one-on-one with Iraizoz, and the Uruguay hitman made no mistake, side-footing home with power and panache.

In a half of precious few clear-cut chances Iraizoz batted away a whipped Messi free-kick, but the home goalkeeper could do nothing to avoid registering an own goal to his name. Cristiano Ronaldo, who is yet to score in La Liga this season, and Alaves substitute Alfonso Pedraza both struck the woodwork twice, while Sergio Ramos fired over an open goal late on.
