Arsenal won, but how did everybody else around Europe do?

England

Wolves 0 - Leicester 0
The Wanderers had a first half goal ruled out by VAR — another instance of review perverting the law, in my opinion. The Foxes had Hamza Choudhury sent off for a second yellow in the 76th minute.

Liverpool 1 - Norwich City 0
The Reds went 25 points clear at the top and another step closer to an unbeaten season on the strength of Sadio Mane’s substitute goal. They’ve got 12 matches left and 15 points to clinch the league.

Aston Villa 2 - Tottenham Hotspur 3
Toby Alderwiereld had quite the week — his wife gave birth a few days ago, he scored an own goal, and scored one in the correct goal as well. Heung-min Son scored the stoppage time winner off a Gerrard-esque error from Villa’s Bjorn Engels.

Spain

Real Madrid 2 - Celta Vigo 2
A 85th minute goal from Mina Lorenzo, two minutes after being substituted on, pegged the La Liga winners back, split the points, and helped the visitors climb out of the relegation zone.

Barcelona 2 - Getafe 1
Barca temporarily pulled even with Real Madrid at the top of La Liga with their win but fell a point behind with Madrid’s draw. Leo Messi hasn’t scored in four consecutive league matches for the first time since 2013-14, but he has assisted on 6 of their last 7 goals.

Germany

Koln 1 - Bayern Munich 4
Three goals in the first 12 minutes helped Bayern to cruise to victory over the Billy Goats. Munich ends the weekend atop the Bundesliga table.

RB Leipzig 3 - Werder Bremen 0
Red Bulls kept pace at the top of the Bundesliga with an easy win over a struggling Werder Bremen side mired at the bottom of the table. Leipzig trail Bayern by a point.

Dortmund 4 - Eintracht Frankfurt 0
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before — Jadon Sancho and Erling Braut Haaland scored and Dortmund cruised to a win. They end the weekend four off the top.

Fortuna Dusseldorf 1 - Borussia Monchengladbach 4
With Gladbach tied with Dortmund for third, I supposed it’s time to start tracking their results as well. Lars Stindl scored a brace for the visitors.

France

Amiens SC 4 - PSG 4
After battling back from 3-0 down to take the lead, PSG were pegged back by a 91st minute goal from Serhou Guirassy to split the points. PSG are still 10 points clear at the top.

Marseille 2 - Lille 1
Goals from Mozambique international Reinildo Mandava and Dario Benedetto gave Andre Villas-Boas’ (remember him?) the win. Marseille picked up points on PSG, but I don’t think they’re closing the 10-point gap.

Italy

Juventus 2 - Brescia 0
Goals from Juan Cuadrado and Paulo Dybala (his free kick was marvelous) kept Juve top of Serie A by a point. Giorgio Chiellini returned to action after a six-month ACL layoff.

Lazio 2 - Inter Milan 1
The Biancocelesti leapfrogged the Nerazzurri for second in the table with goals from Stefan Milinkovic-Savic and Ciro Immobile. Immobile now has 26 goals in 24 matches this season.
