🌍 Weekend European roundup: Lewandowski, Ronaldo, Mané & more

Liverpool made a massive title statement against Manchester City, Robert Lewandowski can't stop scoring goals and Juventus found a way to win ugly without Cristiano.

Here's a wrap of the club action before international qualifiers return to our screens.

🇩🇪 Bayern thrash Dortmund in Der Klassiker

"Crisis club" Bayern Munich threw themselves right back into the Bundesliga title race with a resounding 4-0 win over Borussia Dortmund. Robert Lewandowski's remarkable scoring run keeps going on, with the Pole having gotten on the score sheet in each and every single club game this season. Where this result leaves Borussia Dortmund is anyone's guess.

🔴 Liverpool show a ruthless streak

VAR continues to be a contentious issue in world football, with Pep Guardiola left furious after his Man City side lost 3-1 at Anfield to hand Liverpool a commanding lead in the EPL title race. Reds defender TrentAlexander-Arnold appeared to handle in his own area but referee Mike Oliver waved play on, only for Liverpool to score a screamer through Fabinho on the counter. 

City dominated the opening exchanges of Sunday's top of the table clash but was made to rue their missed chances as Liverpool punished them in clinical fashion, and Sadio Mané scored a diving header, ironically, to secure the points. Sergio Agüero has still never scored at Anfield and Liverpool now lead the Premier League by eight points over surprise package second-placed Leicester City.

😯 CR7 substituted again

Juve's 1-0 win on Sunday over Milan wasn't pretty but they got the job done and it's another clean sheet and three points for Maurizio Sarri and the Italian champions. Cristiano Ronaldo was visibly frustrated as he was substituted on 55 minutes by Argentinian striker Paulo Dybala, who scored the winner. Ronaldo reportedly left the stadium before the final whistle, and it's the second time he's been substituted inside a week, after being hooked against Lokomotiv Moscow in the Champions League. 

🐐 Two free-kicks for Messi as Barca thrash Celta Vigo

The little magician was back to his old tricks at Nou Camp, scoring twice directly from free-kicks and adding a third to score yet another Barcelona hat-trick. The great man's free-kick goal stats are almost hard to believe, as he's outscored three major Champions League rival clubs in the past ten seasons.
