Weekend roundup - European shockers
Odds and tips continue to crash thanks to such eye-opening results, as you’ll witness below.
Torino 0-0 Fiorentina
Fiorentina squandered the chance to close the gap at the top of the table by drawing to Torino especially as they had won their last five games
Atalanta 0 – 1 Genoa
Genoa won despite losing their last five games and not winning their last 8 games. They even held on when they went down to 10 men with a few minutes left.
AC Milan 1 – 0 Juventus
Juve have now lost two in their last four games after going 49 games unbeaten in the league. Maybe they were a little drained from their encounter with Chelsea.
Aston Villa 0 – 0 Arsenal
I haven’t seen a game this bad in quite a while, just an all-round poor effort from the Gunners.
Malaga 4 – 0 Valencia
It wasn’t the fact that Malaga won but the thrashing that they delivered. Portillo was fantastic as was Isco.
Betis 1 – 0 Real Madrid
The title is now officially out of Madrid’s grasp. I see no way back for them. What a result for Betis who seem to confirm their rise back to the top.
Augsburg 0 – 0 Borussia M.Gladbach
This just illustrates how far M.Gladbach have fallen since losing Marco Reus this summer. Augsburg are the worst team in the league and you just cannot be dropping points against them.
Rennes 0 – 1 Evian
Rennes were on a roll having won three in a row but they lost to Evian who, with that win, climbed out of the relegation zone.
Montpellier 1 – 0 Bordeaux
MHSC defeated top of the league Bordeaux who have got to be upset at dropping points in a very ‘winnable’ game.
PSV 1 – 2 Vitesse
PSV had won the last 8 league games but were defeated at home to an in-form Vitesse side, who now sit third in the Eredivisie.
Willem II 2 – 2 Heracles
Willem ended a rotten run of form with a draw to Heracles, though they were aided by a sending off.
Celtic 0 – 1 Inverness
After defeating Barcelona at Parkhead, the Bhoys should have found their recent opponents rather easier to play but instead have found their form slipping. If this continues, Celtic may actually have a title challenge on their hands.
