Euro Roundup

As Manchester City continued their dominance in the English Premier League, how did their European rivals get on in their respective leagues?

Barcelona maintained their spot at the top of the Spanish league as a Suarez brace guided them to a 3-0 win at Leganes, while Atletico Madrid held out their bitter rivals Real Madrid to a 0-0 draw in the capital, a match that witnessed Cristiano Ronaldo hit his 50th shot this season, of which he has scored just a single goal. Valencia edged past Espanyol 2-0 to secure their second-place position, eight points ahead of Sevilla who sit just outside the top four after coming from a goal behind to beat Celta Vigo 2-1.

In Germany, Bayern Munich continued their fine run of form as Lewandowski’s brace helped them to a 3-0 win at home to Augsburg, meaning they are now six points ahead of both Schalke and RB Leipzig, who beat Hamburg 2-0 and drew with Bayer Leverkusen 2-2 respectively. Borussia Dortmund now sit fifth after André Schürrle’s missed penalty cost them a point in their 2-1 loss at Stuttgart. Borussia Monchengladbach meanwhile occupy fourth spot after returning victorious from a six-goal thriller at Hertha Berlin, with the away side taking all three points in a 4-2 victory, where forward Raffael bagged a brace, the first of which coming in the form of one of the goals of the season with a thumping half-volley from distance.

Napoli are now two points clear at the top of Serie A after beating AC Milan 2-1, a point ahead of Inter who relied on an Icardi brace to see off Atalanta in a 2-0 victory. Juventus slipped up once again in their title pursuit after losing 3-2 at Sampdoria, with all five goals arriving in the second half, while Roma complete the top four as Perotti grabbed a goal and an assist in the 2-1 win over Lazio, who incidentally sit two points off in fifth.

Finally, in France, Monaco’s 1-1 draw at Amiens allowed PSG to open up a six-point gap at the top of the table, and the Paris side did just that when they beat fifth-place Nantes 4-1, with Cavani at the double before a Di Maria opener and a Pastore third. Lyon remain third after a goalless draw at home to Montpellier, with Marseille in fourth after a last-minute equaliser rescued a point for the away side in their 1-1 draw at Bordeaux.
