Portuguese Primeira Liga
Braga continued their strong start to the season as they edged out Arouca 1-0 away from home on Friday night.
Aderlan Santos scored after just nine minutes to take Braga to four wins from their opening five matches.
That moved them up to a provisional second place ahead of the rest of the weekend's fixtures, with only unbeaten Porto ahead of them as they prepare to face Estoril on Sunday.
Go Ahead Eagles and Cambuur Leeuwarden shared the points in an occasionally fiery but ultimately goalless Eredivisie clash on Friday night.
Cambuur played the entire second half with 10 men after the dismissal of Martijn van der Laan for a rough challenge on Xander Houtkoop two minutes before half-time.
However, the Eagles, who had struck the frame of the goal twice in the first half, could not capitalise as it finished in a stalemate.
Turkish Super Lig
Akhisar Belediye moved up to fourth in the Super Lig with a 2-0 win at home to basement boys Gaziantepspor.
Oumar Niasse opened the scoring in the 34th minute and late substitute Kenan Ozer made the points safe in the 90th minute.
The win moved the hosts on to nine points from five games, level with Caykur Rizespor and Fenerbahce and three behind leaders Besiktas. All three teams have a game in hand.
Elsewhere, Karabukspor missed the chance to go second as they had Ugur Ucar sent off in the 79th minute of their 0-0 draw at home to Kayseri Erciyesspor.
It left the hosts in fifth place on eight points.
Halmstads BK gave their Allsvenskan survival hopes a huge boost as they claimed a 1-0 win away at fellow strugglers Osters IF.
Halmstads came into the match with just goal difference keeping them out of the automatic relegation zone but a 40th minute goal from Mikael Boman moved them clear of the drop zone.
Jens Gustafsson's men, who came up through the play-offs themselves last season, still sit in the relegation play-off spot but are now just a point behind their opponents and Gefle IF.
AaB missed the chance to close the gap on Danish Superliga leaders FC Midtjylland as they went down 3-2 at Randers on Friday night.
Kasper Kusk put AaB in front after nine minutes, but Viktor Lundberg levelled shortly before the half-hour mark and an own goal from Patrick Kristensen saw the hosts lead 2-1 at the break.
Rasmus Jonsson made it 2-2 in the 69th minute, but Jonas Kamper won it for Randers five minutes later.
Defeat left second-placed AaB six points behind Midtjylland, having played a game more, while Randers moved up to sixth, just two points further back.
