La Liga
Levante 0-5 Real Madrid
Any time Los Blancos take the pitch, you can pretty much guarantee a goal (or more) from Cristiano Ronaldo. Against a struggling Levante side, Ronaldo scored twice, raising his mark to 15 goals in eight games, a La Liga record. As a team Real has found the net 30 times, meaning Ronaldo has accounted for 50% of Madrid’s goals.
Barcelona 3-0 Eibar
Barca remain undefeated and un-scored upon in La Liga play with a 3-0 win over Eibar. Xavi, Neymar andLionel Messi all scored in a 15-minute span to earn three points for Barcelona. With his goal, Messi is one-mark shy of tying the La Liga goal scoring record of 251, set by Telmo Zarra in the 1940s.
Atletico Madrid 2-0 Espanyol
Diego Simeone’s side have not lost at home in 24 La Liga matches as the defending champions downed Espanyol. Although not the prettiest match for Atletico, they remain in the top-five on the table, five points behind leaders Barcelona.

 Girondins de Bordeaux 2 - 1 Stade Rennais FC 
Willy Sagnol (Bordeaux coach): "In terms of technical performance, there wasn't much to crow about today, but I'm focusing on the frame of mind we showed. The lads never gave up; they ended the game absolutely exhausted after going all-out to get the win in the dying minutes. The players deserve their success; we have 17 points, and every single one of those points has been well deserved, because we have a strong mental approach and none of my lads is a cheat. All my players look to outdo themselves every time. It's not all roses, mind, far from it, but overall it's your frame of mind that gets you something at the end of the season."
Thomas Touré (Bordeaux forward): "I knew we would carve out one last chance, and luckily it fell to me and I managed to put it in the back of the net. But really the whole team deserves the credit. Still. It was the kind of goal that every player loves to score; I don't know anyone who wouldn't like to score one like that. It was great to lose my Ligue 1 goal-scoring virginity today - that's how I'm looking at it. It's for certain that if you play regularly, you will make progress - you can only make progress - and when the coach gives me chances like he did today, it just makes me improve even faster."
Philippe Montanier (Rennes coach): "It' always tough to lose, even more so when it's in the dying seconds of injury time, obviously. That's two away matches in a row that we've come up against a 'keeper in fine form who saves his side. Thankfully my lads are fighters. We have the feeling that we're coming closer to wins than defeats, but that's how it goes sometimes. We got the tough job done by scoring the equaliser, but we need to be able to play with more lucidity and hang onto the ball when we have possession rather than rushing forward. It's tough for the lads, who are making a huge effort. I can't reproach them for anything in today's match. We just have to deal with it and get over it; we have a full week until our next chance to break out of this downward spiral, this situation we don't feel we deserve to be in." 
 FC Nantes 1 - 1 Olympique Lyonnais  
Michel Der Zakarian (Nantes coach): "I think that given the match as a whole, my players didn't get what they deserved today. We should have won it. Still, it was great that we managed to equalise, because it's the first time we've played a 'big' team this season, and we had a huge second half. It's our third match in a week and it's great to get a point, even though it's a shame that we couldn't get the win, because we had the chances to score more."
Hubert Fournier (Lyon coach): "I have regrets - obviously to do with not taking all three points, because if we had managed to control the match a bit more I think we could have got the win. In the second half we were hardly troubled but still we slipped up and got hit on the counter when we were leading 1-0 away from home.  We should have done better but even though we showed some holes in our attacking play, we did manage to score; we simply should have maintained our lead. Still, the point we got keeps us within some kind of range of the top part of the table, even though it's a bit of a kick in the teeth as I feel we could have left here with all three points."
 RC Lens 0 - 0 SM Caen 
Antoine Kombouaré (Lens coach): "It's hugely disappointing. The first half was evenly balanced, but in the second we created the better chances and dominated play. We had the chances to score. Still, we managed not to lose and our display in defence was a huge improvement. As for [striker Yoann] Touzghar, he did miss some chances but I'm not going to crucify him. He has progress to make in terms of his mental strength, his technique and his finishing and he should be able to score the goals to kill off matches but, like most of my squad, he has just arrived in Ligue 1. We showed today that we're capable of getting forward but also not exposing ourselves at the back. In terms of points, it's a shame and we're disappointed. You need to be effective in Ligue 1, and if we can keep a clean sheet, we should be able to score as well. I'm still waiting for more from my side."
Patrice Garande (Caen coach): "It's a point won as far as we're concerned. We produced one of our best performances in terms of how we used the ball, but we just lacked that bit of spark with our finishing. I like my players' attitude, their qualities and their faults too. Lens are a side of fighters, who never give up, but we managed to stick up to them by taking the match to them right from the off. Every match is complicated and we try to take points wherever we go by having a coherent game plan. After the visit of Marseille [Week 9], we're off to Bordeaux. We can't afford to second-guess ourselves - we have to go for it and get the points we need to reach our objectives."
 Olympique de Marseille  2 - 1  AS Saint-Etienne 
Marcelo Bielsa (Marseille coach): "During the first 15 minutes of the second half we suffered a drop in our physical condition, which we corrected by bringing on Lemina and Alessandrini. They gave the team added oxygen. Imbula was very good in the first half and Thauvin was always a threat when one on one. I preferred to sacrifice them to give us more of a physical presence. In the last half hour we dominated the game again, with fewer goal-scoring chances and less beauty in our play, but we defended well and controlled the ball. We dominated for 75 minutes. Apart from a few chances at the start of the second half we were never really under the cosh. We showed our maturity in the final 30 minutes. (On being five points ahead of Paris Saint-Germain) In a season of 38 matches in which we have only played eight, we must only think about playing well and not worry about analysing the table. I don't give myself any objectives and I prefer to concentrate on the next match."
Christophe Galtier (Saint-Etienne coach): "My one regret is that we only performed in the second half. We knew that Marseille scored 75 percent of their goals in the first 20 minutes of each half, and the second goal is a consequence of two errors that came about because we were being pressured and were unable to protect the ball. We know that Marseille press all over the pitch. We were heavily punished at the second goal but we managed to stay in the match and we improved but just didn't create enough chances. I have no regrets with my starting line-up. Erding is injured but is the freshest attacker we have. We need to bring in fresh blood and give them experience. Saint-Maximin looks interesting and so does Diomandé. Marseille are very impressive from an athletic viewpoint. They are a contender to win the title."
Saturday, September 27
 AS Monaco 0 - 1 OGC Nice 
Leonardo Jardim (Monaco coach): "I am sad about the result. At half-time, (Valère) Germain and Ricardo (Carvalho) had to come off. One of them even lost his memory (Carvalho, who had a head knock). Then I took off (Jérémy) Toulalan because we needed to push harder and get more penetration on the flanks. Fabinho brought more quality in the circulation of the ball in midfield. Toulalan has played a series of intense matches. We will need him against Zenit. Our objective is to win. We didn't expect to suffer so many defeats in so few games. But there is only one road - hard work and making the group progress. Our way of playing football is ambitious. Monaco are an ambitious team. We stuck to our ideas. We like playing football; we don't boot the ball into touch, or throw ourselves to the ground. I respect the game of football. Our team is not made to play on the break. To do that we needed another type of attacker, like (Emmanuel) Rivière. But we believe in Berbatov and Martial, who have different qualities. We do what we can with the players we have available. They are the ones who will help us."
Claude Puel (Nice coach): "I don't know if you can say we had it under control. We suffered a lot and had to hang on. In the first half we defended well as a team but we didn't do so well when it came to bringing the ball out from the back. It is a shame because there was a chance for us to do something out there. But we were solid. And the start of the second half reassured us, even if Monaco were always capable of being dangerous from set-pieces. It was a great performance from my team. We have raised our level in the last two matches, notably from a physical viewpoint. Our team has a lot of technical quality, but to compete in this league you need to be solid physically. We have done well in our last two matches against teams who are in Europe (Monaco and Lille). Carlos Eduardo has quality. Some people are just discovering that, but we had been watching him. He is a very good taker of free-kicks too. At half-time, I was worried about our physical level, but my players gave everything. The fans are satisfied with the win in the derby, and with the team's performance too, I think."
 Toulouse FC  1 - 1  Paris Saint-Germain 
Alain Casanova (Toulouse coach): "The first half leaves us with regrets. The players did what we wanted from them in terms of pressing high up the pitch. We forced them to play long balls, which they didn't like. We created several good chances and could have been two goals in front at the break if we had been a bit more clinical. Unfortunately, our inexperience cost us the equaliser. They didn't have a single chance in the first half but they caught us out from a free-kick in midfield. The second half was more even and we had less of the ball. The end of the match was difficult but my team never gave up so congratulations to them. It is a good point for us this evening, although we deserved to win, certainly on the basis of our first half."
Laurent Blanc (Paris Saint-Germain coach): "The first half was not great. But that is also down to Toulouse, who didn't allow us to settle into the match. We must acknowledge that we were mediocre in the first half, and we helped them with their goal. But we put things right in the second half and played with more aggression. Do we need to be worried because we didn't win? If we had won, we would maybe be more confident. Barcelona are a great team that everyone knows. We have had a complicated start to the season, but we knew that. We are aware that last season we dominated the league and this year, with the same team and the same coach, we are not winning matches so easily. Barcelona is a different competition, and even if we are having difficulty and certain things worry me, the spirit is good. The players are putting in a lot of effort, perhaps more than last season when they were winning matches 3-0 or 4-0. At the moment, I don't know which attacking players I will have available against Barcelona. We don't play in the same way when Ibra is there and when he isn't. Even (Barcelona coach) Luis Enrique says so. The club and the medical staff will do everything they can to treat him. He is an important player for the team, but we need to be patient."
 LOSC Lille 1 - 0 SC Bastia 
René Girard (Lille coach): "It was a good reaction and I am very pleased. I had said to the players that it was their match and it was up to them to react and show that it was just our ghost that played on the Côte d'Azur (in Wednesday's 1-0 defeat to Nice). It wasn't easy against a well organised Bastia side. We played with lots of energy but we needed a moment of magic from Divock Origi. We deserved the victory, although it was not easy. It was very important to get three points this evening from a psychological viewpoint."
Claude Makelele (SC Bastia coach): "We could have played for 40 minutes longer and we still wouldn't have scored! Lille deserved the win because they had more chances. We are going through a tough time and we need to lift our heads and keep working. We are lacking a performance that can serve as a reference point for us and allow us to get out of the danger zone. There were positives but there is still a lot of work to be done. We were too cautious at the start of the match. Had we been more audacious we could have created chances. My players need to let themselves go a bit more."
 FC Lorient 0 - 2 Evian TG FC 
Sylvain Ripoll (Lorient coach): "Conceding such an early goal left us in the worst possible position. I think that we still responded well in the first half and showed a desire to get back into the match, but we created chances that we couldn't convert and I think it was cruel for us to go in trailing at the interval. We faded in the second half and didn't have the resources to come back. But contrary to previous matches there were positives to come out of the first half, even if it wasn't enough. We are fully aware that we are going through a difficult time."
Pascal Dupraz (Evian TG coach): "We scored very early on and I hoped that would liberate us, but we struggled in the first half. The second half was a bit better but in our situation we can't turn our noses up at a second consecutive win in three days. We had been dawdling along before that, but I have seen the virtues of my team again in the last two games. We are not going to spoil our pleasure at winning this evening. I am just sorry for my fellow coach Sylvain Ripoll, because he is a lad I appreciate a lot. We need more than 40 points to stay up and today we only have seven after eight matches and we have a huge match next Saturday against Metz, who are in great form."
 FC Metz  3 - 0  Stade de Reims 
Albert Cartier (Metz coach): "It was a good evening at the end of a good week. The first half was intense; there was a lot of intensity for our third match in the space of a week. The second half was even better still. I have heard of Breton galettes, but not ones from the Vosges. Gaëtan Bussmann (a native of the Vosges) came up with a few. I am happy for him because he allowed everyone to take a lot of pleasure. We gave our all."
Jean-Luc Vasseur (Reims coach): "We started well but nothing went for us. The first half was quite good but then I think we conceded the goal a bit too quickly. I never sensed that the team had given up. They hung on in there but everything went against us. It is at difficult moments like these that you see who the tough guys are. I think that the five or six coaches of teams at the bottom of the table could feel that their positions are fragile but I don't know if that's the solution. I am working and have never thought about stepping down."
 Montpellier Hérault SC  2 - 1  EA Guingamp 
Rolland Courbis (Montpellier coach): "After the Monaco match and Guingamp's equaliser, it is not only the three points that do us good, but also the favourable finish to the match that we enjoyed. We have a week to raise our game before our match at Nice, who impressed me a lot against Monaco's 11 phantoms. We have 13 points while being average, sometimes not too bad. I don't know how many points we might get in the coming weeks by being decent. We were average in the first half but full of desire with players who had received a hammer blow to the head three days earlier. This match was not easy to prepare or play. We will settle for the crumbs; the cakes and patisseries will come later. We are getting by so as not to die of hunger. There are a dozen teams who would like to be as bad as us. Has anyone ever had 13 points from eight games before by only scoring seven goals?"
Jocelyn Gourvennec (Guingamp coach): "There is a lot of frustration. I felt we played really well. We didn't make many mistakes, except for at the start of the second half. We gave nothing away in the first half, and then we deserved to get back on level terms after conceding two minutes after the break. At that moment I thought we had done the hardest part. It is a shame that we got back on level terms away from home and then conceded again. We did better, having 11 shots, and six on target. We had one shot off the bar, but we are not getting much luck. We need to stick together and cut out the little errors to get things going positively for us again."
