Euro Roundup: Barca remain top while Dybala continues his fine form in front of goal

With the two Manchester clubs neck and neck at the top of the English Premier League after six games played, how did their European counterparts fair in their respective leagues?

We begin with some thrilling La Liga results, where Barcelona made it six wins from six after two own goals and a Luis Suarez third helped them to a 3-0 win at Girona, while a Daniel Cabellos double was enough to ensure Real Madrid overcame Alaves 2-1. Atletico meanwhile sit second after beating Sevilla 2-0, while Malaga bagged two late goals to salvage a draw at home to Bilbao despite being reduced to ten men, with the game 3-3 as Aduriz and Inaki Williams (2) scored for the away side.

In Germany, Borussia Dortmund made it 16 points from six games as they thumped Borussia Monchengladbach 6-1, with Aubameyang grabbing a hat-trick to send him to eight league goals for the season already. Bayern Munich meanwhile sit third after somehow letting a 2-0 lead over Wolfsburg slip at the Allianz Arena, letting Hoffenheim jump to second with a 2-0 victory at home to Schalke, while Hannover complete the top four after a goalless home draw with Cologne, who incidentally picked up their first point of the season.

Napoli went top of the Italian league on goal difference despite only beating SPAL 2013 3-2, with Faouzi Ghoulam’s goal and assist key to the narrow victory. Juventus, like Napoli, are six wins from six after putting four past Torino with no reply for the away side, with Dybala’s double central to the success. El Shaarawy bagged a brace as Roma defeated Udinese 3-1, while a late D’Ambrosio goal sent Inter third as they edged past nine-man Genoa 1-0. Lazio’s 3-0 win at HellasVerona sent them fourth, with Immobile now on eight goals in his last five Serie A games.

Finally, in Ligue 1 there was huge disappointment for PSG as they somehow failed to find the back of the net at Montpellier in a 0-0 stalemate, yet still sit a point ahead of Monaco at the top of the pile, despite Falcao’s brace in a comfortable 4-0 win at Lille. Bordeaux sit third after beating Guingamp 3-1, while Saint-Etienne complete the top four despite drawing 2-2 at home to 15th place Rennes. Finally, Leo Dubois of Nantes bagged his first goal for the club with a stunning strike from all of 35-yards to give his side a 2-1 victory at Strasbourg to send them fifth in the table.
