What does it profit a team to win unexpectedly in the Champions league and be defeated in the La Liga? Barcelona was in the form of their lives when they defeated PSG 6-1 to qualify for the next round of the UCL. So, it was only natural to expect that they will simply stroll past Deportivo La Coruna. But this was not to be. Perhaps they over-celebrated their triumph over PSG.

Deportivo

Barca lost 2 goals to 1 to Deportivo. Joselu and Alejandro Bergantinos scored in the 40th’ and 74th’ minute respectively, while Barcelona’s solitary goal was scored by Luis Suarez in the 46th minute. This is the first time Luis Suarez will score and Barcelona doesn’t win.

With Barcelona losing, Real Madrid didn’t disappoint. They came from a goal down to beat Real Betis 2 goals to 1. Christiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos scored Madrid’s goal. This returned Madrid to the top of the La Liga standings. They have 62 points while Barcelona has 60.

In England, Arsenal conveniently defeated Lincoln 5 nil in the FA cup. The hashtag for the weekend was #WengerIn. Arsene Wenger will undoubtedly be relieved.

Also, in the F.A. Cup, Tottenham Hotspur cannot stop winning. They thrashed Millwall 6-nil.

In other European leagues, Bayern Munich still has a stronghold on the Bundesliga. They look like they are already champions of Germany because the only team that could challenge them-Borussia Dortmund lost 2 goals to 1 to Hertha Berlin.

Munich has 59 points. In Serie A, Juventus defeated Ac Millan 2 goals to 1 on Friday. They have 70 points and in France, Monaco beat Bordeaux 2 goals to 1. They have 68 points. PSG sit second with 65 points. They beat Lorient away 2 goals to 1.
