LA LIGA

Sergio Ramos’s stoppage-time equaliser maintained Real Madrid‘s six-point lead at the top of La Liga as the European champions salvaged a 1-1 draw at Barcelona in Saturday’s El Clasico.


Luis Suarez looked to have breathed new life into the title race when he headed home the opener from Neymar’s free-kick eight minutes into the second half.

Neymar and Lionel Messi then passed up huge chances to add to Barca’s advantage, and the hosts were made to pay when Ramos met Luka Modric’s free-kick with a powerful header to stretch Madrid’s unbeaten run in all competitions to 33 games.

PREMIER LEAGUE

Diego Costa starred as Premier League leaders Chelsea roared back to win 3-1 in an ill-tempered game at Manchester City, who had Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho dismissed.

Gary Cahill’s own goal gave City the lead, but Costa equalised and teed up substitute Willian before Eden Hazard struck to send Antonio Conte’s men four points clear of City at the summit.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane finished off a special week in style by scoring a brace in Spurs’ 5-0 victory over Swansea at White Hart Lane

Jermain Defoe’s eighth goal of the season condemned Premier League champions Leicester to yet another defeat as improving Sunderland won for the third time in four attempts.

SERIE A

Marek Hamsik hit his 104th goal for Napoli to tie Uruguayan Edinson Cavani’s tally for the Italians in a defiant 3-0 win over Inter Milan at the San Paolo on Friday.

BUNDESLIGA

Robert Lewandowski scored twice as Bayern Munich moved back top of the Bundesliga on Friday after coming from an early goal down to win 3-1 at Mainz.

Freiburg stalled their recent slide down the Bundesliga standings and frustrated Bayer Leverkusen with a 1-1 draw at the BayArena.

Borussia Dortmund got back to winning ways with a 4-1 win over Borussia Monchengladbach which increases the pressure on the Foals’ coach Andre Schubert.

Bundesliga top goalscorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang pulled further away at the top of the scoring charts with a brace while Lukasz Piszczek and Ousmane Dembele were also on target in a convincing win.
