Krasnodar claimed their third home win of the season with a 6-1 thrashing of lowly Mordovia Saransk today [Friday].

Tommy Bechmann's injury-time strike secured a 2-2 draw for Sonderjyske in tonight's [Friday] Danish Superliga match at AGF Aarhus.

But Sonderjyske pulled one back through Conor O'Brien in the 65th minute before substitute Bechmann popped up late on to rescue a point for the visitors.
BK Hacken were 3-0 winners at Djurgarden tonight to climb above IF Elfsborg and reach the top of Allsvenskan.

Hacken went ahead through Bjorn Anklev after 35 minutes and Dioh Williams doubled their lead in the 54th minute.

Moreirense suffered their first defeat of the Liga ZON Sagres season as Guimaraes won 1-0 tonight [Friday] to claim the derby honours.
The third-minute dismissal of defender Augusto left Moreirense in trouble.

Cesar Arzo scored the second-half winner as AA Gent climbed to second place in the Belgian Jupiler Pro League with a 2-1 win over 10-man Standard Liege.
Standard were knocked down in numbers in the 47th minute as Imoh Ezekiel was sent off.
At that stage the teams were locked level at 1-1, after Jelle van Damme's 44th-minute own goal cancelled out Standard's 25th-minute opener from Yoni Buyens.
Arzo had the decisive say on the hour mark, when his shot took a deflection off Buyens and beat goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima.
