Big teams losing, Balotelli, Guardiola, Vardy, Depay…
There were alot of exciting matches across Europe over the weekend and we’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch.
1. Big Upsets
There were a lot of upsets across the big leagues in Europe and that means lots of betting slips were ruined.

2. Bo Andersson
After Djurgården came back from 2-0 down to earn the point they needed to secure the Swedish title, the club’s sporting director fainted in the emotion of lifting the trophy.

3. Jamie Vardy
Leicester’s striker Vardy celebrated his late goal by flapping his wings like an eagle in front of the Crystal Palace fans who had taunted him about his wife Rebekah’s social media spat with Colleen Rooney.
They chanted “your wife is a grass” and then abused Vardy as he left the pitch at the end but the former England striker had the last laugh with his 19th goal of Rodgers’ nine month reign.

4. Ben Foster
So close to the gold standard for footballing novelties, a goalkeeper scoring, but he was denied by a great save from his opposite number.
Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster thought he’d scored an injury time equaliser against Chelsea 😳— Goal (@goal) November 3, 2019
Only for Kepa Arrizabalaga to make an incredible save! 👏pic.twitter.com/RABsQH61fA
5. Pep Guardiola
He might be one of the greatest managers in the world, but he can be an underrated shithouse too.

Pep Guardiola gets the ball and offers it to the assistant manager while City are winning 2-1.
Pure Shithousery from Pep 🤣😭 pic.twitter.com/7yNp07Gz7O
6. Mario Balotelli
Mario Balotelli responded to the racist chants by kicking the ball into the stands.
His teammates and match officials convinced the striker to remain on the pitch.

8. Memphis Depay
A 13th goals in 16 games this season from the Dutchman gave Lyon all three points v Toulouse in the 96th minute. Clutch player.
Sadio Mane wasn’t the only one scoring injury time winners at the weekend 😏— Goal (@goal) November 4, 2019
Step up, Memphis Depay 😎 pic.twitter.com/mkB7PIJZvK
9. Ciro Immobile
The Italian striker notched his 100th goal in just 147 games for Lazio. Ridiculously quick time.

If I’d have been playing in the VAR era my long arms would have been offside for about 50 goals 😕— Peter Crouch (@petercrouch) November 3, 2019
