• Liga: Real master in Madrid, Real Sociedad master in Spain
Real still dominate in Madrid. During the derby against his neighbor and leader Atlético Madrid, Zinedine Zidane’s men won 2 to 0 and thus moved back to 3e La Liga square. Madrid’s victory also ends the Colchoneros’ impressive 26-game record unbeaten streak in La Liga since last season.
For their part, Real Sociedad obtained a draw at home against Eibar. A small point which allows him, however, to regain first place for the benefit of the number of goals scored, ahead of Atlético Madrid (26 pts each).
Lionel Messi saved FC Barcelona from further disillusionment against the relegated Levante with an unexpected goal in the 13e La Liga day, to snatch a draft success 1 to 0. The Catalan club is now lagging behind in the last two decades at the head of the championship: 9 points behind the co-leaders.
• Ligue 1: Paris under pressure from OM and Lille
PSG had a bad evening at the Parc des Princes. The Parisians bowed 1-0 on a goal from Tino Kadewere, lost the lead in Ligue 1 and perhaps their star Neymar, released on a stretcher after a shock to the ankle. Thomas Tuchel’s men have ceded their leader’s chair to Lille, which earlier dominated Bordeaux (2-1), and find themselves third in the standings, also doubled by their evening opponents. Olympique de Marseille, winner against Monaco (2-1), is fourth but virtual leader if successful in its two late matches.
Rennes, which had not won for eight matches in all competitions, has finally put an end to its catastrophic series against Nice thanks to Mbaye Niang’s first goal this season. In a lively match, with many opportunities on both sides but a lot of clumsiness in the last gesture, the top pressing of the Bretons paid off. Nice, on the other hand, remains embroiled in the crisis which cost Patrick Vieira his place. The Aiglons (18 pts) are twelfth and have not won for eight games.
On the other hand, for rival Nantes, the departure of Christian Gourcuff has not changed much. The Canaries could not beat the Dijon red lantern at Beaujoire and this draw (1-1) does not help anyone.
• Premier League: leaders slowed down, Leicester and Southampton get closer
Premier League co-leaders Tottenham and Liverpool had to settle for a 1-1 draw against bottom-ranked Crystal Palace and Fulham. Tottenham remain ahead on goal difference, before the clash between the two teams scheduled for Wednesday.
Behind, Leicester offered an easy success (3-0) against Brighton to return to the podium one point behind the duo of leaders. Thanks to a victory against Sheffield United, the astonishing Southampton took fourth place, one point off the podium.
Beaten at Everton 1 to 0, Chelsea dropped back to fifth place. At the same time, Manchester United and Manchester City went their separate ways in a goalless draw after a tasteless game.
