Kylian Mbappe missed a bagful of chances against his former side on Sunday night, and Thiago Silva hilariously poked fun of the teenage sensation in the locker room.
Valencia vs. Barcelona wasn't the only top two sides going at it. Over in France, league leaders Paris Saint-Germain faced second place AS Monaco.
But unlike Barcelona, PSG recorded a vital win, racking up three crucial points in the process.
The lethal 'MCN' started with two of the prolific three getting on the score-sheet. Edinson Cavani opened the scoring in the first half, with Neymar doubling their advantage from the spot.
Mbappe did score, though. However, in the wrong net.
The French striker failed to convert his chances, eventually scoring an own goal.

Neymar threaded two delightful balls to Mbappe who fluffed his lines on both occasions. Following the 2-1 victory, skipper Silva has revealed what he said to the 18-year-old.
"I told him in the locker room that he still thought he was playing for Monaco," the Brazilian said via Goal.
"He even deflected the ball on their goal!

Despite a poor outing on Sunday night, he's been scintillating since arriving at the French capital for an astronomical transfer fee. As echoed by the PSG defender.
"But Kylian has a very good start to the season, like Cavani and Neymar.
Speaking after the game, Silva also weighed in on the penalty drama between Neymar and Cavani.
"What we saw today, Neymar shooting a penalty... perhaps in a next match, Neymar can leave it to Cavani because this kid has a great heart, you don't even imagine it.
"Perhaps, if he had already scored today, he could have let the penalty to Cavani because the most important thing is that PSG can win and Neymar makes this kind of thing. Maybe for the next penalty, he can pass it even to Kylian because today he had some difficulty in scoring, but we are happy with him," Silva added.
