Five stories and anecdotes of the European Day
Our week summary of the European day brings us as always interesting things. Barcelona's victory against Real Madrid, the revelation of Southampton in England, the confirmation that Bayern and Borussia seem to be the only ones to dispute the Bundesliga title together with Leverkusen and the famous no greeting from Pellegrini and Mourinho. All this and much more in our five stories of the European day.
1- Barcelona won the Clásico. Tata Martino's team prevailed 2-1 Real Madrid. controversially (there were two possible penalties in favor of the whites), the Barça shoots in six points of advantage on the box merenge. bad christian, worst Messi and excellent for Neymar. Atlético follows its line and is one point behind the Catalans after beating 5-0 with a brace from David Villa against Betis. Vila-real also beat Valencia by a landslide 4-1. The scandal of the day was lived in the City of Valencia, where the return of Muñiz Fernández ended with a penalty in favor of Levante clearly outside the area that served to give one of the three goals to the Granota team against Espanyol. Will Muñiz return to the fridge again, or to the freezer this time?
2- Borussia and Bayern, unstoppable. Bayern remains top of the Bundesliga with a rental point after a hard-fought win over Hertha with two goals from Mandzukic. Borussia also won at the home of the always difficult Schalke 04. Watch out for Leverkusen, that for the moment endures the pull of the two greats with their victory against Augsburg.

But, definitely, The big game of the day was the one between Chelsea and Manchester City that ended with 2-1 for the blues thanks to a late goal from Fernando Torres. The news of the duel was however, Pellegrini's refusal to shake Mourinho's hand, perhaps annoyed by the exalted celebration of Torres's last goal by the Portuguese.
4- In Italy, Rome continues with a firm step tras to win 0-1 to Udinese and adds 27 points in nine games and a single goal conceded. Juve won 2-0 to Genoa, the same result that Napoli achieved against Torino with two penalty goals from Pipa Higuaín.
