Weekend Action

Let's begin in Spain. Ronaldo scored three to lead Real Madrid to victory yesterday. Barcelona had to come back to defeat Sevilla 3-2 on Saturday. Cesc helped with a goal and this fine piece of acting. The two sides clash this coming Sunday in Barcelona. 

Over in Holland Yank Abroad Jozy Altidore scored again to help Alkmaar get a draw. Jozy is now the leading scorer in the top Dutch league with eight goals. So, that's pretty cool.

Let's continue on to Italy where Napoli and Juventus both won to remain top of Serie A. The Old Lady thumped Roma 4 - 1 while Napoli edged 10-man Sampdoria. Elsewhere, AC Milan could only draw, and Inter and Lazio both claimed victories. Here's the table.

In England the big result was Spurs' win at Old Trafford. They hadn't done that since 1989. It was a five-goal thriller. In a London Derby, defensive frailties again struck Arsenal as Chelsea left the Emirates 2-1winners. Manchester City needed a late goal from Eden Dzeko to win at Fulham, while Everton continued their fine start with a victory over Southampton. Liverpool also won, away to Norwich. In Monday Night Football action, QPR host West Ham in another London Derby.

Some stuff happened in Major League Soccer, too. You can read about it here.

And that's the Monday round-up for you. SSN's resident three-year-old was a bit of an ass this morning and I don't have the energy to find the articles. We'll give it another shot tomorrow.  Onward!!
