Bayern Hit Eight, Atlético Madrid Lose, FA Cup, The Zlatan Tats, Cologne "Fans"

Happy Monday! No huge upsets in the FA Cup over the weekend. Bradford continued their fine run, but considering the opposition was Sunderland, it's not too surprising. In Spain, Atlético Madrid fell off the pace after a loss at Celta Vigo. City rivals Real were victorious against Deportivo La Coruña, but didn't look particularly impressive. Meanwhile, Messi went nuts again, and Barcelona slotted five past Levante. In Germany, Borussia Dortmund are out of the Drop Zone after a win, and in Italy, well, blah. Juventus and Roma both drew, Milan were poor, you know the scenario. Let's get to it.

We haven't done The Big Interview in a while. Frankly, there haven't been too many subjects of interest. Not so this week. It's everyone's favorite Patrick Stewart look-a-like, Arjen Robben. Sticking with German football, Kirsten Schlewitz has this love letter to the Bundesliga. She likes goals, apparently.

Spain. We need a bit more on that. Here are Three Things about Real Madrid's win, and here are Five Things We Learned in La Liga this weekend. More tomorrow with El Sid.

How weird is this? Bizarre scenes at Borussia Moenchengladbach's stadium. Idiots.

More oddness, this time courtesy of SSN Favorite, The Zlatan. He scored against Caen and removed his shirt to reveal several tattoos. Here's the story.

There's one more FA Cup match this week. It goes down tonight. Preston North End vs. Manchester United. Here's your preview.

That"s your lot to start the week. Scribes and Champions League tomorrow!
