There have been some surprise Football results over the last week right across Europe.

There have been some surprise Football results over the last week right across Europe.

Real Madrid suffered a shock defeat at the hands of their neighbours Getafe in La Liga last Sunday. They were leading but the match ended 2 -1 ending Real’s 24 match unbeaten run.

Less surprisingly in England, the European champions Chelsea continued its perfect start to the season with a 2 – 0 win over Newcastle United. Chelsea has won all three matches this season and is at the top of the table with 9 points.

Manchester City had a reasonable match against Liverpool where they came from behind to draw 2 – 2 with Carlos Tevez scrapping a point for City with his 100th league goal.

In Italy Pescara, newcomers to Serie A, were unsurprisingly dominated by Inter Milan and lost 3 – 0. Sneijder scored the first goal 17 minutes into the match and Milito managed a second just two minutes later. The game was wrapped up by Coutinho just 9 minutes before the end of the match.

More surprising was Sampdoria’s return to Serie A with a surprise 1- 0 victory over AC Milan. Andrea Costa scored the only goal as Milan left supporters frustrated by hitting the posts twice.
