Arsenal – no match

Bayern 8-0 Hamburg (Vidal 17, Lewandowski 24p 42 54, Alaba 56, Coman 65 69, Robben 87)
The German champions recorded their biggest win in over two years (since beating the same opponents by an identical scoreline) to stretch their unbeaten run to 14 games. Carlo Ancelotti celebrated his 1,000th game as a head coach with a 591st win.

Napoli 0-2 Atalanta (Caldara 28 70)
Mattia Caldara, a defender set to join Juventus in 2018, scored both goals as fourth-placed Atalanta closed to within three points of Napoli in the Serie A standings. The hosts failed to score for the first time in 16 games, despite playing the last 23 minutes against ten men.

Wednesday 8 March
Atlético 1-2 Barcelona (Godín 70; Rafinha 64, Messi 87)
Lionel Messi posted a late winner for the second game in succession as Luis Enrique’s side moved top ahead of Real Madrid’s trip to Villarreal. Surprise starter Rafinha broke the deadlock after the visitors had made a slow start, but it was Messi who grabbed the headlines as he hit the 20-goal mark for the ninth successive Liga season.

Freiburg 0-3 Dortmund (Papastathopoulos 13, Aubameyang 55 70)
Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang ended a run of four games without a goal as Dortmund eased to victory. The Gabon international looked set for another frustrating afternoon as he missed two good chances before a couple of second-half strikes provided a timely lift. Sokratis Papastathopoulos halted a drought of his own with a first Bundesliga effort since 2015.

Benfica 3-1 Chaves (Mitroglou 17 88, Rafa Silva 50; Bressan 44)
The Eagles posted a fifth consecutive win on Friday to move four points clear of Porto at the Portuguese summit ahead of the rest of the weekend’s games. Kostas Mitroglou grabbed the opener and later added his 13th goal in 11 games. Rafa Silva had restored Benfica’s lead with just his second Liga effort this term.

Tuesday 14 March
Juventus 2-0 Empoli (Skorupski og 52, Alex Sandro 65)
The Italian champions capitalised on Napoli’s slip to extend their advantage at the top of Serie A to ten points ahead of Roma’s meeting with Inter on Sunday. Alex Sandro scored a rare goal after goalkeeper Łukasz Skorupski had put through his own net as Juve claimed a ninth successive win – remarkably, this was the sixth 2-0 of that run.

Betis 1-2 Sevilla (Durmisi 36; Mercado 56, Iborra 76)
Half-time substitutes Vicente Iborra and Wissam Ben Yedder inspired a comeback victory in the Seville derby as the visitors temporarily moved above Barcelona and level on points with Real Madrid ahead of Sunday’s games. Both Sevilla goals came from free-kicks.

Wednesday 15 March
Atlético 1-2 Barcelona (Godín 70; Rafinha 64, Messi 87)
Diego Simeone’s men paid the price for failing to build on their strong start as they lost for the first time since Barcelona clinched an identical result in the first leg of the Copa del Rey semi-finals on 1 February. Back from injury, Diego Godín brought the hosts level in the second half, but they had no retort to Messi’s late clincher. 

Leverkusen 0-2 Mainz (Bell 3, Öztunali 11)
Home hopes of stringing together three Bundesliga wins for the first time this season were swiftly dashed as struggling Mainz struck twice in the opening 11 minutes. Mainz had lost their previous six away games in the league.

Guingamp 1-2 Monaco (Didot 90; Glik 24, Fabinho 86p)
Fabinho scored a Panenka penalty as Monaco sealed a win that re-established their three-point cushion at the summit. Defender Kamil Glik had earlier stabbed in his third goal in eight outings.
