Weekend Recap - Top 5 Matches (Highlights)

This week we've had great action from three leagues in Europe. The English Premier League, the Spanish La Liga and the German Bundesliga as well.

#5 - Augsburg 4 - 2 Werder Bremen

A fantastic meeting between Augsburg and Werder Bremen in the German Bundesliga, as the hosts came out with a 4-2 victory after being down 1-0 and tied with the Bremen club at 2 goals a piece.

#4 - Villarreal 4 - 2 Rayo Vallecano

With just 2 points from their first three matches, visitors Rayo Vallecano thought they would come out with the full three points from their match at the El Madrigal after snatching an early 2-0 lead over the hosts. But the hosts would have the last laugh, winning the match 4-2 thanks to four unanswered goals, three of which came in the second half.

#3 - Deportivo La Coruna 2 - 8 Real Madrid

Goal galore in this one as the stars of Real Madrid shined much brighter than they have in their last few matches. Cristiano Ronaldo's hat-trick was a big part of this lop-sided victory, but Gareth Bale's and some fantastic finishing from Javier Hernandez showed that this team may not only be about the Portuguese star.

#2 - Manchester City 1 - 1 Chelsea

As if it was written in a book. With Chelsea up 1-0, former Blues' legend Frank Lampard comes in to face the club he loves as a substitute, and of course scores the match-tying goal. Then, obviously, he does not celebrate as a gesture of respect.

#1 - Leicester City 5 - 3 Manchester United

If last week was the "return" of the Red Devils when they beat-up on poor QPR, then this week was the "going back to the way they were three weeks ago" showing from van Gaal's men. After enjoying a 3-1 lead against the newly promoted Leicester City side, United gave up 4 goals to be humiliated at the hands of the Foxes for a 5-3 final score loss.
