Leipzig slump to defeat in Frankfurt

Bundesliga leaders Leipzig slump to defeat in Frankfurt

Bundesliga leaders RB Leipzig suffered their first defeat since October as second-half goals by right-back Almamy Toure and winger Filip Kostic gave Eintracht Frankfurt a 2-0 home win on Saturday.

Leipzig's stumble in Frankfurt opens the door for defending champions Bayern Munich, who are third, but can cut the gap at the top to just a point if they beat fifth-placed Schalke later at the Allianz Arena.

Barcelona beaten by Valencia

Barca beaten by Valencia in early blow for Setien

Quique Setien's honeymoon period lasted less than a fortnight as he tasted his first Barcelona defeat on Saturday in his second La Liga game in charge after a 2-0 loss to Valencia.

Maxi Gomez's strike and a Jordi Alba own goal at Mestalla handed Barca their fourth league defeat of the campaign, giving Real Madrid the chance to move three points clear of the champions at the top of the table when they visit Real Valladolid on Sunday.

PSG may be my last club in Europe-Di Maria

Angel Di Maria has revealed he would like to return to Argentina before the end of his career, but he hopes Paris Saint-Germain will be his "last club in Europe".

Di Maria completed a €63 million ($69m/£53m) move to PSG from Manchester United in 2015, after an ill-fated season at Old Trafford which saw his reputation suffer a significant blow.

The Argentina international was revered as one of the finest wingers in Europe during his time at Real Madrid, but failed to live up to expectations when he left Santiago Bernabeu to take up a new challenge in the Premier League.

Iheanacho extends FA Cup scoring record

Kelechi Iheanacho scored his seventh goal of the season for Leicester City in Saturday’s FA Cup game against Brentford.

In the game played at Griffin Park, the Nigerian handed the Foxes a fourth-minute lead thanks to an assist from James Justin.

Iheanacho’s left-footed shot from inside the six-yard box beat goalkeeper Luke Daniels after he received a cross from the defender.
