What a weekend around Europe, with title races in Italy and Germany looking even closer than they did before.
Here's a wrap of the major weekend results, including a goal-filled Sunday.
🇩🇪 Bayern 0-0 RB Leipzig
It took a heroic defensive display from the visitors to secure a point at the champions, mostly owing to the individual brilliance of Dayot Upamecano. It's as you were in the Bundesliga title race, with only a point separating these top two, and it's likely that these teams will slug it out all the way until May.
🇩🇪 Leverkusen 4-3 Dortmund
Goals are usually on the menu when Dortmund is in action, and there were seven of them this time around as they came out on the losing side at Bayer Leverkusen. Dortmund is still in the title race, but they'll need to find a way to keep clean sheets and that needs to happen soon because despite leading twice in this contest, they left emptyhanded. Also on their upcoming agenda is a round of 16 Champions League tie with PSG, which looks tasty, to say the least.
🇪🇸 Osasuna 1-4 Real Madrid
Zinedine Zidane's men went behind in the 14th minute and the French manager must have been concerned, but his side turned it around in emphatic fashion with goals from Isco, Sergio Ramos and substitutes Lucas Vasquez & Luka Jovic. It's a win that keeps Real three points above Barcelona, and Zidane will be encouraged that various squad members are chipping in with goals. That was Sergio Ramos' 90th for the club.

What an incredible turnaround from Inter, who trailed 2-0 at the break with Zlatan scoring one and assisting the other to give The Rossoneri hope. A long-range belter from Marcelo Brozovic was quickly followed up by an equalizer by Vecino after brilliant work and an accurate cut-back by Alexis Sanchez. Stefan de Vrij's brilliant glancing header from an Antonio Candreva cross put the Nerrazzuri ahead and Romelu Lukaku put the icing on Inter's cake deep into stoppage time after good work from Victor Moses.
It was a stunning fightback that sends Inter to the top of the Serie A tree.
🇪🇸 Betis 2-3 Barcelona
A win against Betis shouldn't paper over the cracks of another disjointed Barca performance, but credit where it's due to Frenkie de Jong for his brilliantly taken goal and Lionel Messi, who claimed a hat-trick of assists. Both sides had a man sent off in an eventful contest that Betis led twice.
🇫🇷 PSG 4-2 Lyon
As usual, PSG seems to be spreading the goals around and, as usual, Kylian Mbappe was on the score sheet again. But the man of the match undoubtedly goes to Ángel Di María who bagged a goal and an assist and in so doing, becomes only the third player in Europe's top five leagues to get at least 20 goals & 20 assists since the start of 2018/2019. The other two? Lionel Messi and Jadon Sancho.
The football world goes a little quiet in the early parts of this week, but the top sides in France, Spain and Italy will be involved in domestic cup competition from Wednesday and we'll have it all covered.
