ARMENIA

Yusuf Otubanjo was on target for FC Pyunik Yerevan, in their big [4-0] Premier League victory over FC VAN.

BELGIUM

Alhassan Yusuf came off the bench to help Antwerp overtake KRC Genk at the top of the First Division A with a come-from-behind [2-1] win.

Yira Sor and Tolu Arokodare made second-half appearances for Genk, but their introduction could not inspire a positive result for the title hopefuls.

CZECH REPUBLIC

A rock in defence, Igoh Ogbu showed his quality in attack as well, as he provided an assist in Slavia Prague's comprehensive 6-0 thrashing of Bohemians 1905 to keep their title dreams alive.

Victor Olatunji scored a 7th-minute opener as Slovan Liberec took a two-goal lead within the first ten minutes at České Budějovice. Quadri Adediran, however, netted for the home side as they battled back to claim a thrilling 3-2 triumph.

In the FNL, Adeleke Akinyemi scored for the second game running as Karviná ran out [5-0] winners over Prostějov.

DENMARK

Stephen Odey netted the consolation goal for Randers as they fell to a [1-3] defeat in front of their home fans against Brondby.

FRANCE

Super Falcons trio of Esther Okoronkwo, Regina Otu, and Yewande Balogun have helped AS Saint-Etienne become champions of the French D2 Feminine and seal promotion to the French women's first division.

Saint-Etienne lost [1-2]] at Montauban to surrender their unbeaten record, but they kept their distance from second-place Olympique Marseille, who failed to beat Thonon Évian at home.

Goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie delivered another bright performance picking up another clean sheet as Paris FC forced city rivals PSG to a goalless draw.

GERMANY

Anthony Ujah laid on the assist to the winning goal in the 89th minute to inspire Eintracht Braunschweig's [2-1] win over Sandhausen.

The victory puts a five-point distance between struggling Eintracht Braunschweig and the relegation zone with three games left of the campaign.

ITALY

Victor Osimhen missed a penalty but then scored Napoli's second penalty to power the champions to a narrow [1-0] win over Fiorentina at the Diego Maradona Stadium.

With his latest strike, Osimhen becomes the all-time top-scoring African in the history of Serie A with 47 goals, dethroning Ballon d'Or winner George Weah.

NORWAY

Akor Adams made it five goals in his last four league games, but the 23-year-old forward's strike did not stop Lillestrøm from falling to a disappointing [1-2] loss at home to Bodø/Glimt.

PORTUGAL

Super Falcons midfielder, Christy Ucheibe has lifted her third consecutive Liga BPI title after SL Benfica Feminino claimed an impressive [0-2] win away to Valadares.

SWEDEN

In the Superettan, Richard Friday slammed home the winner for GAIS Goteborg in their [2-1] league win over Henry Offia and Trelleborgs at the Gamla Ullevi in Göteborg.

TURKEY

Umraniyespor’s relegation survival hopes received a major boost as Olanrewaju Kayode grabbed a goal while Jesse Sekidika provided an assist in a big [4-1] victory over visiting Sivasspor.
