⚽ European Roundup: Barcelona and Inter held as Bayern Munich go top

A lot of games took place across Europe’s five big leagues on Saturday with FC Barcelona, Eden Hazard and Bayern Munich being some of the names that attracted attention on the day.

In the Laliga, Barcelona slipped down the table to 12th place, eight points behind the league leaders, after they were held to a surprise 1-1 draw by 10-man Alaves.

Luis Rioja capitalized on a defensive mix-up to open the scoring for Alaves in the 31st minute before Antoine Griezmann levelled less than a minute from time after the hosts were reduced to ten men following the sending off of midfielder Jota.

In the same league, Eden Hazard scored a goal in almost a year to help Real Madrid to a 4-1 win over Huesca. The Belgium international opened the scoring before Karim Benzema struck twice, with Federico Valverde also adding his name to the scoresheet.
