Chelsea Win League Cup, More Racism, Liverpool Beat City, Barca Win, Real Held, Roma vs. Juventus, MLS, Gentleman Ultra's Alternative Serie A Guide To Sassuolo

And a fine Monday morning to you, as well! Chelsea has won the first trophy on offer this season. The Capital One Cup is theirs. Diego Costa was his usual feisty self, slapped Bentaleb and then scored a goal, as did some guy named John Terry. After the match, some of their supporters were accused of racist actions on a train. Again. Over at Anfield, Liverpool gave Chelsea's title hopes a boost by beating City 2 - 1. In Spain, things got a bit tighter thanks to a home draw for Real and an away win for Barcelona. Germany? Borussia Dortmund won again to continue their rebirth, Bayern Munich were victorious, and Bas Dost simply cannot stop scoring. In Italy, the big one is this afternoon (2:45 p.m. EST on beIN Sport) when the top two clash in Rome. Let's get to it, beginning with that trophy...
