6 Things You May Have Missed From European Football This Week as the Top Teams All Pick Up Wins

Europe’s top teams all managed to secure wins this weekend, with some scorelines more impressive than others.

But, that being said, there were still plenty of points of interest throughout Europe’s top leagues, ranging from arguments between teammates all the way through to the magic of Paulo Dybala.

Here are our top six picks from an entertaining weekend of European football…

1. Neymar and Cavani Squabble Over Set-Pieces – Again


Neymar said after his move to French giants Paris Saint-Germain in the summer that he had not joined the club in order to become the star man. However, judging by his antics at the weekend, that is clearly a fib. 

Not only did Neymar want Edinson Cavani to give up his penalty duties during the 2-0 win over Lyon, Dani Alves also stepped in to nick the ball away from the Uruguayan and hand it to his former Barcelona teammate for a free-kick.

While the trio of Neymar, Cavani and Kylian Mbappe is shaping up to be an incredibly threatening one, there is obviously a bit of tension between the club’s top players.

2. Paulo Dybala Nets Hat-Trick in Juventus’ 3-1 Win Over Sassuolo


While previously many have waxed lyrical over the talents of Juventus’ most promising attacker, this could be the season that Paulo Dybala runs riot in front of goal.

The Argentina international scored an incredible hat-trick against Sassuolo on Sunday, netting a 25-yarder, a Samba-like strike and an exquisite free-kick as Juventus ran out as 3-1 winners.

Dybala now has eight goals in just four Serie A matches, an incredible record bettered only in Europe by Monaco forward Radamel Falcao, who has a ridiculous nine Ligue 1 strikes already this season.

3. Bayern Munich Bounce Back With Comfortable Mainz Victory

Carlo Ancelotti came in for plenty of criticism last week after seeing his Bayern Munich side lose to an impressive Hoffenheim, but calm was restored at the weekend as the Bundesliga giants triumphed over Mainz.

Thomas Muller was given a rare start and paid back his manager’s faith with a goal, while right-back Joshua Kimmich was the star man, claiming three assists.

Arjen Robben scored Bayern’s second of the afternoon before striker Robert Lewandowski netted a second half double to wrap up the points.

4. Real Madrid Triumph Without Benzema or Ronaldo


Saturday’s trip to Real Sociedad was a real test for Real Madrid, who were missing two of their star attackers but still managed to grab an all-important three points.

With Karim Benzema out injured and Cristiano Ronaldo suspended, Gareth Bale was tasked with leading an inexperienced forward line and delivered superbly, scoring a brilliant goal as Los Blancos secured a 3-1 win away from home.

Borja Mayoral opened the scored for Zinedine Zidane’s side before Sociedad’s Kevin  Rodrigues managed both an equaliser and an own goal, with Bale netting the third in the second half.

5. Barcelona Labour to Win Over Getafe

Getafe v Barcelona - La Liga

Those expecting free-flowing football from Barcelona after their 3-0 Champions League win over Juventus in midweek were left disappointed as Ernesto Valverde’s side struggled for large periods against Getafe.

The La Liga minnows took the lead through Gaku Shibasaki in the first half but were pegged back in the second period by Denis Suarez, with the former Manchester City youngster equalising just after the hour mark.

New signing Paulinho made himself a fan favourite seven minutes after his introduction as a substitute, scoring the winner to ensure Barcelona continued their perfect start to the La Liga season.

6. Atletico Madrid Move Into Their New Stadium

Atletico Madrid moved into the Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday and boy, it is one incredible stadium.

After playing their last season at the Vicente Calderon Stadium, Atletico fans were treated to 12 hours of celebrations before their evening fixture against Malaga, which proved to be a little underwhelming.

The 63,000 fans packed into the ground saw Antoine Griezmann score the winner in the 61st minute as Diego Simeone’s side finished the weekend fifth in La Liga, with two victories and two draws so far this term.
