A weekly ranking of Champions League teams as they compete in their domestic leagues.
Juve won the Derby d’Itallia against Inter Milan 1-0 through this thunderous Juan Cuadrado strike (whom we happened to take this awkward photo with this summer). That win put The Old Lady six clear at the top of Serie A.
Real had their match on Sunday against Celta Vigo postponed after storms caused serious damage to Celta’s stadium.
Bayern drew 1-1 at home to Schalke as Robert Lewandowski scored his 15th Bundesliga goal of the season. Luckily for them, RB Leipzig dropped points over the weekend as well, so they remain in first by four points. Video highlights.
In the much-anticipated top of the table derby, Monaco hosted second-place Nice. The home side took all three points as they won 3-0 through a Falcao brace, giving him 14 goals in 17 Ligue 1 appearances. The win keeps Monaco three points clear at the top of Ligue 1. Video highlights.
Barca faced off against Athletic Bilbao at Camp Nou, winning 3-0 through three different goalscorers. With Real Madrid’s match delayed, Barca are within one point of the top, although Real now have two games in hand. Video highlights.
City followed up a midweek 4-0 destruction of West Ham with a 2-1 victory over Swansea through two goals from 19-year-old Gabriel Jesus, including a stoppage time winner. He has three goals in two EPL starts. Video highlights.
Arsenal had a week. They managed to lose 2-1 to Watford midweek and then went to Chelsea without any healthy central midfielders and essentially handed Chelsea the title with a 3-1 loss. Eden Hazard shrugging off a pesky Francis Coquelin for Chelsea’s second is worth seeing again. Video highlights.
Dortmund hosted second-place RB Leipzig, winning 1-0 through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (but really, through an insane Ousmane Dembele assist). Aubameyang has scored 17 in 17 in the Bundesliga, but ruffled feathers midweek by saying he was considering a move away from Dortmund. The win put Dortmund into fourth. Video highlights.
Samir Nasri had a penalty saved as Sevilla drew 0-0 at home against Villarreal to fall two points behind Barcelona in third. Video highlights.
Napoli ran riot this weekend, putting seven past Bologna and moving into second in Serie A. Both Marek Hamsik and Dries Mertens nabbed hat-tricks with Lorenzo Insigne getting the remaining goal. This is a highlights package worth watching.
PSG visited Dijon, winning 3-1, including Edinson Cavani’s 22nd goal in 21 Ligue 1 matches this season. With Monaco knocking off Nice, PSG move into second on goal difference. Video highlights.
Atleti defeated Leganes 2-0 through a Fernando Torres brace. They remain in fourth in La Liga. Video highlights.
Benfica remain top in Portugal by a point after they beat Nacional 3-0 this weekend.
FC Porto beat Sporting 2-1 in one of the biggest fixtures of the Portuguese Liga calendar. The highlights are worth watching solely to catch Iker Casillas making an insane save to secure the win.Video highlights.
Bayer fell to Hamburg 1-0 and remain in ninth place in the Bundesliga. Video highlights.
The Foxes fell 3-0 at home to Manchester United and look like they’re in for a tough relegation battle. Hopefully their good vibes in the Champions League will return when they take on Sevilla in the Round of 16. Video highlights.
