Weekend Reviews for Spain, Italy, Germany

La Liga
Barcelona continued their 100% start to the season with a 4-1 win over Getafe, while Real Madrid suffered a shock 1-0 defeat at Sevilla thanks to Piotr Trochowski's second-minute strike.  Atletico Madrid almost threw away a four-goal lead against Rayo Vallecano but held on to edge a thrilling encounter 4-3.

Serie A
Juventus came from behind to extend their perfect start to the season with a comfortable 3-1 win at Genoa - but Napoli, Lazio and Sampdoria remain on the pace with the champions after victories. The curse of the San Siro continued for AC Milan as they lost 1-0 to Atalanta, having also been beaten by the same scoreline by Sampdoria in their previous home game. Inter Milan picked up their second away win of the season thanks to a 2-0 victory at Torino.

Oh, they're so happy!!

Champions Borussia Dortmund were 3-0 victors over Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday to extend their unbeaten record to 31 matches and move up to third in the Bundesliga. Bayern Munich maintained their perfect start to the season with a convincing 3-1 victory over Mainz at the Allianz Arena. Szabolcs Huszti scored his second goal of the game and was sent off for over-celebrating two minutes into stoppage-time as 10-man Hannover clinched a thrilling 3-2 victory at home over Werder Bremen.
