In Italy, Juventus have shifted gears and are now six clear of Inter Milan after a fantastic start to the New Year. The Spanish La Liga will go down to the wire with both Barcelona and Real Madrid going head to toe in the battle for supremacy. Let’s us have our top 5 goals of the week from Europe.
Setien’s first match in charge of Barcelona saw his side complete an astonishing 921 passes off the attempted 1005. This is the Spaniard’s highest passing rate in La Liga, beating his previous record of 719 completed passes out of 788 with Real Betis. This is also Barcelona’s third-highest tally since the Opta began recording passing statistics in 2008-09 season.
After securing a win over Parma, Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo expressed elation over the victory and said they have 'conquered three fundamental points'.
After Cristiano Ronaldo's match-winning performance against Parma, Juventus' manager Maurizio Sarri said the Portuguese international knows how to solve a hundred problems.
The return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the boost that AC Milan needed as they are now unbeaten since the turn of the year and recorded a crucial win over Udinese during the weekend. This win saw Zlatan reach a terrific milestone, the Swede was not among the goals but became the fastest player to reach 150 wins in Serie A since the three-point for a win era began.
The former Real Madrid man added to his goal tally in this season’s Serie A by netting a brace against Parma and also equalled a record set by former Juve player in 2005. This was the seventh consecutive game in which the Portuguese has scored, thus match Trezeguet’s record and will be looking to better it in the next game.
Manchester United's top scorer Marcus Rashford would probably not be fit until February after injuring his back last week, Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said.
Liverpool spent much of the last 30 years living in Manchester United's shadow, but after three decades their time to be crowned champions of England again is nigh.
Cristiano Ronaldo struck twice as Juventus beat Parma 2-1 to pull four points clear of Inter Milan at the top of the Serie A table on Sunday.
Quique Setien may want a different Barcelona but he needed the same old Lionel Messi on Sunday as the Argentinian gave his new coach a winning start by scoring in a 1-0 victory over Granada.
The visitors pressed high up the field and their work rate was rewarded in the 11th minute. Subrata Paul made a complete mess of a poor backpass by Bikash Jairu as he failed to make contact with the ball in an attempt to kick it away from danger.
Babacar Diawara doubled Mohun Bagan's tally in the 65th minute but Marc Jimenez pulled one back for East Bengal in the 71st minute to make it a nerve-wracking affair in the final few minutes with Mohun Bagan holding fort in the end.
