French Ligue 1
Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the first of his brace after just 27 seconds to inspire Paris St Germain to their first league win of the season at Lille.
Despite their big spending the capital club had only managed to draw their opening three Ligue 1 matches - including goalless encounters in their previous two.
Ibrahimovic, a 20million euro summer buy, ensured there was no repeat as he latched onto Maxwell's through ball to score before Lille had even touched the ball.
And while Aurelien Chedjou equalised from a corner on 11 minutes Ibrahimovic, who has scored all his side's league goals this season, won the match when he poked home ahead of Mickael Landreau just before the half hour.
But it is Marseille who to the top of the Ligue 1 table following a comfortable victory 3-1 over Rennes.
Jeremy Morel gave the home side a first-half lead and, although Julien Feret levelled for the visitors early in the second, Andre-Pierre-Gignac and a late own goal from Romain Danze secured the points.
The win ensures Ilie Baup's side maintained their 100% start to the season and move two points clear of Lyon.
A last-gasp goal from Mahamane Traore restricted 10-man Bordeaux to a solitary point as Nice claimed a creditable 1-1 draw.
Henri Saivet's 86th-minute header looked to have secured a victory for Francis Gillot's men, who battled hard despite seeing Ludovic Sane dismissed in the second half.
The hosts were all set to join Marseille at the top of the table, for a few hours at least, until Traore struck two minutes into stoppage time.
Clydesdale Bank Premier League
Michael Higdon's hat-trick earned Motherwell a 4-1 victory against Inverness and fired the Fir Park side to the top of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.
Tom Hateley had opened the scoring for the hosts directly from a 10th-minute corner and Higdon netted the first of his three goals a minute later.
Richie Foran reduced the deficit to 2-1 before half-time but Higdon added another two goals in eight minutes during the final quarter of the game, with Inverness seeing a late Andrew Shinnie penalty saved by Darren Randolph.
Dundee won their first league match of the season after a 1-0 victory over Hearts at Tynecastle.
Ryan Conroy's third-minute penalty was all that was required for Dundee to secure all three points and lift them off the bottom of the table.
Hearts dominated the attacking possession but could not beat an inspired Rab Douglas in the Dundee goal. The veteran goalkeeper made a string of impressive stops including John Sutton's first-half spot kick.
Swiss Super League
FC Thun brought to an end their three-match losing streak with a 3-0 home victory over rock-bottom Servette in the Swiss Super League.

Reigning champions Basle remained in fourth spot after being held to a goalless draw at home by FC Zurich and they are now just a point ahead of Young Boys, who beat Lucerne 2-1 away.
Strikes from Alexander Farnerud (19) and Alexander Gonzalez (62) put Young Boys two goals up and that was good enough for the win despite Lucerne halving the deficit four minutes from time through Philipp Muntwiler.
Leroy Fer's last-gasp penalty ensured FC Twente continued their perfect start to the new Eredivisie season after Twente beat VVV Venlo 1-0.
Fer struck the extra-time goal in midweek to send Twente through to the Europa League group stage at the expense of Bursaspor and he was the match-winner again when he stroked home from the spot in the 90th minute.
Second-placed Vitesse Arnhem also had to wait until very late to grab a 1-0 win at home to Feyenoord.
Wilfried Bony scored the goal in injury-time to maintain Vitesse's unbeaten start and leave them two points behind the leaders.
PSV Eindhoven are a point further back after captain Marc van Bommel netted his first goal since returning to the club in a 5-1 thumping of 10-man AZ Alkmaar.
AZ's hopes were immediately undermined by Etienne Reijnen's eight-minute red card although Adam Maher's 28th-minute goal cancelled out Tim Matavz's opener to have them level at half-time.
Van Bommel opened the floodgates after the break though, netting on 54 minutes, before Marcelo (68), Matavz (83) and Atiba Hutchinson (90) made it a rout.
Champions Ajax drew 2-2 at Heerenveen after their South Africa forward Thulani Serero went from hero to villain.
Serero (13, 47) had struck twice either side of goals from Heerenveen's Alfred Finnbogason (30, 45) before he was sent off on 53 minutes.
Despite his dismissal Ajax held on to at least stay unbeaten and behind PSV only on goal difference.

Benfica top the Liga table on goal difference from Porto thanks to a 3-0 win over Nacional on Sunday night.

Struggling GAIS were unable to claw back any of the deficit on the teams above them as they fell to a 2-1 loss against Kalmar.
Goals from Erik Israelsson and Abiola Dauda put the visitors in the driving seat with Erik Johansson netting the only reply for GAIS.
Defeat leaves second-from-bottom GAIS 11 points adrift of Gefle, who were 1-0 winners at Norrkoping thanks to Jonas Lantto's last-minute goal.
IFK Gothenburg fought back from three goals down to salvage a 3-3 draw at GIF Sundsvall.

Dame N'Doye got the first on the hour before half-time substitute Roman Pavlyuchenko grabbed the winner to lift Lokomotiv up to fifth.
Another capital club, Dinamo Moscow, remained at the bottom after they surrendered a late winner at home to Kuban Krasnodar.
Cristian Noboa sent Dinamo ahead on the stroke of half-time but after Artem Fidler (64) levelled it was an injury-time strike from Aras Ozbiliz that sent them to a fourth defeat in five.
FC Copenhagen returned to the top of the Danish Superliga table despite a 2-2 draw away to Odense.
The capital club were twice pegged back as goals from Andreas Cornelius (six) and Nicolai Jorgensen (64) were cancelled out by Andreas Johansson (50) and Rurik Gislason (67).
The point was enough, however, to send Copenhagen a point clear of AaB who won 4-0 at Sonderjyske on Friday night.
FC Nordsjaelland, who were in midweek drawn in a tough-looking Champions League group that included Chelsea and Juventus, drew 0-0 at home to Brondby to stay third.

Defending champions Olympiacos are hot on their tails, though, having recorded a 4-0 win over Levadikos at Karaiskakis Stadium on Sunday night.
They were always in control after Dimitrios Siovas` fifth-minute opener, with Rafik Djebbour making it two before the break.
Giannis Maniatis put the game out of reach after the break, before Djebbour grabbed his second with 15 minutes remaining.
The night's other game ended goalless, with Aris Salonika and OFI Crete laying on little entertainment in Thessaloniki.

Iganacio Gonzalez leveled from the spot, but the home side regained the lead through a penalty of their own from Lior Rafaelov and then moved further clear thanks to Mohamed Tchite.
They were not troubled after that until Bacca and David Biton traded last-minute goals.

The Constant Vanden Stock Stadium was stunned when Benjamin De Cuelaer opened the scoring (11), but Milan Jovanovic equalised (42).
