Atletico compounds Barca’s woes

Espanyol stuns Real; Spurs back to winning ways

Real Madrid’s stuttering form continued on Sunday when it was stunned 2-1 away at Espanyol in the LaLiga.

A goal in either half from Raul De Tomas and Aleix Vidal was enough for Espanyol to secure full points.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side is without a win in three games in all competitions but remains top of the table on 17 points, ahead of city rival Atletico Madrid on goal difference.

Meanwhile on Saturday, Thomas Lemar and Luis Suarez heaped more misery on his old club as Atletico claimed a 2-0 victory over the Catalans.

Tottenham eased the pressure on Nuno Espirito Santo as Matt Targett’s own goal capped an improved display in its 2-1 win against Aston Villa on Sunday.

Spurs had lost their last three Premier League games and were wobbling again when Ollie Watkins cancelled out Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s opener.

Locatelli strikes

Manuel Locatelli struck late to earn Juventus a 1-0 win over Torino in the Turin derby as the ‘Old Lady’ stretched its winning run to four games in all competitions.

Inter Milan substitute Edin Dzeko equalised a minute after coming on before winning the decisive penalty as the champion earned a 2-1 comeback win over Sassuolo.
