Serie A (Italy)

Atalanta suffered a surprise home defeat to Bologna, with Nicola Sansone and Riccardo Orsolini on target. Musa Barrow got 56 minutes under his belt and registered his fifth assist of the season. Scalvini seemed to be keeping him onside as the Barrow pass came in; Sansone then kept his cool to curl into the far top corner.

Assan Ceesay came in the 79th minute as leaders, and Napoli had their luck in Lecce. However, Assan Ceesay’s header came off the crossbar, and Lecce finally broke their goal drought after five games of firing a blank.


Charleroi denied Zulte-Waregem at the depth following Marcq’s 90+6 minutes goal. However, Alieu Fadera scored the equalizer in the 80th minute to take his goal tally to seven.


Mohammed Badamoesi ended his 16-game run without a goal by scoring a brace in Cukaricki’s 2-1 win over Javor.

Badamoesi scored a header in the 47th minute, and in the 60th minute, he restored the visitors’ lead with an individual goal from the angle. Cukaricki is now 3rd after 29 matches played in the Serbian Premier League.

Super Lig (Turkey)

Ali Sowe scored a brace to take his goal tally to nine in the league. Saturday’s double goals mean Sowe has scored six in all competitions in the last six matches. Sowe followed up in a press, forcing the goalkeeper to make a howler; Sowe blocked the visitor’s keeper’s clearance and found its way to the net for the opener.


Babou Cham scored a stoppage-time debut goal for Paide in their 1-1 draw against Nomme Kalju. This was Babou’s second league game in Estonia.


Mamadi Ngum scored his third league goal of the season when Sonacos recorded a 2-0 home victory against Douanes.

CasaSports dropped to the fourth position in the log after back-to-back defeats. First, the Saly-based academy, Diambars, handed the defending champions a 1-0 loss. Abdoulie Gassama missed from the spot.
