It was a mixed fortune for the teams topping the various European leagues this weekend.

Juventus drew 1-1 with S.S. Napoli, while Chelsea surprisingly lost to Crystal Palace 1 goal to 2.

But, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid did not disappoint, as they won their matches against Augsburg and Alaves. Bayern Munich thrashed hapless Augsburg 6-nil while Real Madrid won 3-0.

Standford bridge shockingly collapsed as Chelsea’s lead was cut to 7 points. They now have 69 points. Everyone expected the Antonio Conte tutored team to take Palace to the cleaners. This was going to be a reality when Cesc Fabregas scored as early as the 5 minute. But Palace had other plans as outstanding Wilfred Zaha cancelled Chelsea’s lead 4 minutes later. Christian Benteke doubled Palace’s lead in the 11th minute. Chelsea couldn’t come back.

In the Merseyside Derby on Saturday, Liverpool was in prolific form as they defeated Everton 3 goals to 1. Liverpool’s goals were scored by Sadio Mane 8′, Phillippe Coutinho 31′ and Divock Origi 60′. Everton’s solitary goal was scored by Matthew Pennington 28.

Thanks to Theo Walcott 40′ and Shkodran Mustafi 53′ who scored for Arsenal, a bit of reprieve came the way of Arsene Wenger. They drew 2-2 with Manchester City. The Citizen’s goals were scored by Leroy Sane 5′ and Sergio Aguero 42′.

Meanwhile, in the Spanish La Liga, we are still waiting for who will blink between Real Madrid and Barcelona. Barcelona defeated Granada away 4-1. Real Madrid has 68 points and Barcelona has 66 points.

And congratulations to PSG for winning the Coupe de la Ligue Final by bashing Monaco 4 goals to 1.
