πŸ“πŸ”₯ European roundup: Salah breaks Man United goalscoring duck, Ronaldo on fire and Messi rescues Barcelona

The weekend ended on a high for some of Europe 's top sides with Liverpool extending their lead with a win over Man United while Juventus opened a four-point gap at the top of Serie standings.  

Mohamed Salah finally broke his goalscoring duck against Manchester United as he netted the second goal at the death to help Liverpool beat archrivals Manchester United 2-0 on Sunday evening. 

The win, their 13th in a row, saw them keep their march to the title alive, opening a 16-point gap between them and defending champions Manchester City in Second. 

Virgil van Dijk gave the hosts the lead in the first half and they had two goals ruled out after VAR checks before Salah killed it off deep into added time. 

There was also a first for Alisson Becker, who became the first Liverpool goalkeeper to assist a Premier League goal since Pepe Regina set-up Fernando Torres against Sunderland in 2010. 

In the other match of the day, Burnley shocked Jamie Vardy's Leicester 2-1, in a match the Englishman missed a penalty. 

Interestingly, none among the traditional top six teams won this weekend apart from Jurgen Klopp's men. 

'Four-some' Bayern move back to second  

Bundesliga defending champions scored four goals in the last half hour as they saw off a stubborn Hertha Berlin 4-0 in perfect response to RB Leipzig's comeback win on Saturday. 

Thomas Muller gave the Bavarians the lead on the hour mark before Robert Lewandowski converted from the spot on the 73rd minute. 

Tiago Alcantra and Ivan Perisic then added gloss to the win late on to help their side move to second, four points behind Leipzig. 

Talking of Saturday, Erling Haaland sent shockwaves on his Bundesliga debut for Borussia Dortmund, scoring a 23-minute hat-trick in the second half as his side won 5-3 against Augsburg to move to fourth. 

Messi shoots Barcelona back to LaLiga pinnacle

Barcelona needed a Lionel Messi second-half goal to beat 10-man Granada 1-0 and move back to the top of the La Liga table. 

In what was manager Quique Setien's first match in charge, the Blaugrana struggled for long periods against a disciplined Granada and seemed to have no answer to unlock their defense until German Sanchez was shown a red card with 20 minutes to go. 

Messi then stepped up to score the lone goal on the 76th minute to help his side move back to the top. 

In an earlier match, Real Mallorca shocked Valencia in a 4-1 drubbing, hugely denting their Champions League hopes. 

Ronaldo continues with red-hot form

In Italy, Cristiano Ronaldo continued with his red-hot form as his brace helped Juventus see off Parma 2-1 and open a four-point gap at the top of Serie A over second-placed Inter Milan. 

The Portuguese scored his 10th and 11th goals in the last seven Serie matches on both sides of an Andreas Comelius goal. 

The Old Lady of Turin enjoyed the win having watched Inter Milan draw away to Lecce early on. Alessandro Bostoni had given Antonio Conte's men the lead on the 71st minute, but the hosts equalized six minutes later to share the spoils.
