Atletico and Barcelona are among the only four teams to have won both matches to start the season, along with Celta Vigo and surprising Basque club Eibar.

Celta and Eibar end the second round atop the standings with six points and the same goal difference. Celta defeated Rayo Vallecano 3-0 on Saturday, while Eibar beat Athletic Bilbao 2-0 on Sunday.

Real Madrid rebounded from a scoreless draw against newly promoted Sporting Gijon with a 5-0 rout of Real Betis in its home opener. Barcelona edged Malaga 1-0 at the Camp Nou, also Saturday.
