Five stories and anecdotes of the European Day

Five stories and anecdotes of the European Day
Agüero drilled De Egea's goal three times.

Like every Sunday, it is time to review the highlights of the main European days. The triumphs of Madrid and Barcelona, of Bavaria, Del Chelsea, the defeat of Liverpool and many other narratives in the five stories and anecdotes that the main European leagues leave us.

1- Victories of the greats in Spain: Madrid and Barcelona easily sealed another day of the League. The Madridistas comfortably beat Getafe 4-1 with Ronaldo and Isco in a stellar plan but without Bale, absent as a precaution. Barça knocked down Rayo 0-4 with a hat-trick from Pedro. Messi did not score, but the news was that Barcelona lost possession for the first time in five years (the last one was against Real Madrid in 2008 in his defeat by 4-1). Valdés saved a penalty and equals Casillas in the number of maximum penalties saved in the League. For your part, Valencia added its second victory of the season by defeating Sevilla by 3-1 leaving Emery's team at the bottom.

Pedro scored his first hat trick of his career.

2- Bayern and Borussia, co-leaders: in Germany, Bayern reduced the two points they had against Dortmund after the latter failed to overcome the draw at Nuremberg's home. Those from Bavaria did win and also convinced by beating the dangerous Schalke away from home. 04. Guardiola did not line up any Spaniard nor Neuer.

3- Victory at last for Chelsea and victory for City against United: Chelsea broke their bad streak and beat Fulham by 2-0 in a match where Mata did not play (to whom Mourinho has said that he has to be more consistent) and just Fernando Torres. Tottenham won away with a goal from Paulinho and Arsenal is the new leader after winning 3-1 to Stoke City with a spectacular Ozil and Aaron Ramsey who has seven goals at the start of the season. Although the big game was the Manchester derby that ended with 4-1 in favor of City thanks in part to Agüero's two goals.

4- Llorente's goal and victory for Naples: Fernando Llorente made his debut as a starter and he did so with luck because Juve won 2-1 with a header from the Riojan. Inter thrashed 0-7 Sassuolo with a double from Diego Milito who returned to the playing fields after seven months and the great Naples knocked down AC Milan with a goal again from Higuaín. First victory for Benítez's men at San Siro since 1986 and as an anecdote, Ballotelli's first miss from eleven meters in his career. Pepe Reina stopped him. The Neapolitans are co-leaders and have won all their games. In the Roman derby, Rome prevailed 2-0 to Lazio and is at the top along with Naples.

Diego Milito scored a double on his return to the pitch after seven months.

5- Draw between PSG and Monaco: The duel between the top two in the standings ended in a draw. Although perhaps the most notable thing was the scorers of both teams. And Ibrahimovic and Falcao were the gunners of a 1-1 which leaves Monaco as leader for another week. In Holland, Ajax succumbed 4-0 against PSV, who is the new leader.
