STORY: La Liga games on Saturday (November 28) paid tribute to Argentine soccer legend and former Barcelona and Sevilla maestro Diego Maradona - a legend of the sport who died this week.

Real Madrid and Alaves honoured the Argentine with a large number 10 national team jersey laid on the centre of the pitch ahead of their match.

Earlier, Valencia and Atletico Madrid paid tribute to Maradona and Valencia's former player Juan Sol, who also died this month. Atletico Argentine coach Diego Simeone was visibly emotional during the minute's silence.

Sevilla, Maradona's former club, took on Huesca earlier, with Sevilla's players all wearing Maradona's number 10 shirt as a sign of respect before kick-off.
