Bundesliga: Bayern Munich Beat Furth to go 3 Points Clear

Bayern Munich eased past hosts Greuther Fuerth 3-1 on Friday, in spite of playing almost the entire second half with 10 men. The win helped the defending champions to open up a three-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga. But Bayern Munich top goalscorer Robert Lewandowski saw his scoring streak snapped, after failing to equal Gerd Muller’s all-time record of scoring in 16 consecutive league games. It was always going to be a one-sided encounter against the newly-promoted club, bottom in the Bundesliga and without a win this season, and Bayern Munich took a quick lead. This was barely after just 10 minutes into the game with Thomas Muller slotting in from an Alphonso Davies cut-back. Joshua Kimmich was devastatingly accurate with a low drive on the half hour to sco...

Hearts and Hibs both missed out on the chance to go top of the Scottish Premiership after playing out a goalless draw at Tynecastle in the first Edinburgh derby of the season. The clash between the two fierce city rivals - played in front of fans for the first time since March 2020 - ended up being a contest between the two opposing goalkeepers.

As a result, Hibs and Hearts stay in second and third places respectively in the table, just a point behind champions Rangers.

Liverpool 2-0 Burnley: Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane score for Reds at Anfield

  Liverpool welcomed fans back to Anfield by securing a second straight victory of the new Premier League campaign, but they were made to work for their 2-0 victory by a spirited Burnley. Sean Dyche's side were causing Liverpool, who handed youngster Harvey Elliott a first Premier League start, plenty of problems, but the hosts showed their clinical edge in front of goal as Diogo Jota (18) headed Kostas Tsimikas' inch-perfect cross past Nick Pope to break the deadlock. Liverpool, who saw a Mohamed Salah strike ruled out for offside by VAR towards the end of the first half, were given a warning early in the second half when Ashley Barnes's strike was correctly ruled out by the offside flag, but it wasn't long before Jurgen Klopp's side took firm control of the game.

PSG: Mbappe provides first assist for Lionel Messi

PSG have released a clip of Kylian Mbappe providing an assist to Lionel Messi in training. The video gave the club’s fans a mouth-watering glimpse of what’s to come this season.
