Leo show at Levante, plus super Valdes save

Barcelona already have a huge 11-point lead over Real Madrid in La Liga, and we're only a third of the way through the Spanish season. On Sunday night, Barca won 4-0 at Levante, with Leo Messi (2), Andres Iniesta and Cesc Fabregas all on target. Goalkeeper Victor Valdes also made an excellent penalty save and follow-up stop to ensure a clean sheet.


Levante vs Barcelona - Extended Fulltime... by TenMillionSlaves

24 hours earlier, Jose Mourinho's men were beaten 1-0 at Real Betis, with the highly-rated Benat scoring a fine individual goal from 20 yards.

Unlikely goalkeeping hero for Gala

Galatasaray hold a two-point advantage at the top of the Turkish Super Lig table, after a 1-0 win at bottom-of-the-table Elazigspor on Saturday. However, the victory was only secured after keeper Fernando Muslera was sent off in the closing moments. His replacement in goal? On-loan Juventus midfielder Felipe Melo - who made this remarkable penalty save.

Controversial penalty helps Milan beat Juve

Juventus could have gone seven points clear at the top of Serie A on Sunday, but instead they suffered their first away defeat in the league for 18 months. AC Milan scored on 31 minutes from a disputed penalty - Antonio Nocerino seemed to head the ball into Mauricio Isla's back, rather than his arm. Robinho put away the spot-kick for what proved to be the only goal of the game at the San Siro.

Bony shaker for Dutch leaders PSV

In Holland, Eredivisie leaders PSV Eindhoven suffered a 2-1 home defeat to Vitesse Arnhem, who are now just two points back in third place. Chelsea fans will note that the winning goal was scored in the 74th minute by Ivory Coast striker Wilfried Bony, reportedly an £8million transfer target for the Blues. However, the 23-year-old also blazed over the bar from a great chance 10 minutes earlier, so he's certainly not the finished article just yet.

Three And In - Football League

Here's the three best goals from the Championship, League One and League Two (in my humble opinion). Don't forget you can watch all the Football League goals over at SkySports.com, with the clips live on the website from Sunday night.

CHAMPIONSHIP: Adlene Guedioura's thunderbolt, Wolves 1 NOTTINGHAM FOREST 2 (1m 33s)

LEAGUE ONE: Greg Tansey's looping equaliser, STEVENAGE 1 Tranmere 1 (1m 02s)

LEAGUE TWO: Jeff Goulding's chipped winner, CHELTENHAM 1 Barnet 0 (1m 21s)

Two assists, two goals, standard Zlatan

The most consistent performer in the Video Wrap this season has surely been Zlatan Ibrahimovic - even when he's not producing sublime skill, he's found his way in by getting sent off. On Saturday evening, Paris Saint-Germain cruised to a 4-0 home win over Troyes and their Swedish superstar was in imperious form yet again, claiming a brace himself after laying on goals for Maxwell and Blaise Matuidi.

SPL Goals Rush, Week 15 - Caley stun Celtic

Billy McKay's goal gave Inverness their first-ever league win away to Celtic on Saturday in the surprise result of the weekend north of the border. Aberdeen, St Johnstone and Dundee United also claimed narrow away victories, while St Mirren won at home to Dundee.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
