Turkish Super Lig
Besiktas and Orduspor kept up their unbeaten starts to the Super Lig season by beating Elazigspor and Kayserispor respectively.
After a goalless first half, Besiktas eased to an ultimately comfortable 3-0 success thanks to goals from Necip Uysal (49), Tomas Sivok (63) and Roberto Hilbert (72).
The result leaves Elazigspor bottom of the table with one point from four games while Besiktas, like Orduspor, have eight.
Orduspor were given a tougher test than they might have imagined after the visitors had goalkeeper Mahmut Taskiran sent off in the 10th minute.
David Barral had already given the hosts a second-minute lead and Hasan Kabze soon made it 2-0, though Miguel Garcia's own goal put the match back in the balance.
Bogdan Stancu's 58th-minute strike proved the clincher, though Kayserispor again pulled a goal back through Diego Biseswar.
Panionios made it three wins out of three to stay level with Olympiacos at the top of the Superleague as they saw off Crete 2-1 in a game notable for three own goals.
A mistake from Mirnes Sisic put Panionios in the lead after half an hour, and then Dennis Souza put through his own net to double the advantage in the 54th minute.
The hosts got into the charitable mood of the evening when Efthimis Kouloucheris' own goal got Crete on the scoreboard with six minutes left.
Russian Premier League
Amkar Perm and Krylya Sovetov both produced late comebacks to win their games in the Premier League.
Amkar had squandered a one-goal lead as Aleksei Sapogov and Gia Grigalava put Volga Nizhny Novgorod 2-1 up, but Georgi Peev's second penalty of the game levelled the match at 2-2 with 14 minutes to play.
Substitute Igor Picusciac then struck a minute from time to secure a 3-2 victory for the hosts.
Krylya left it slightly later as they won a remarkably similar game at Mordovia Saransk by the same scoreline.
Having led through Alexandru Epureanu, Krylya were pegged back by Eugeniy Osipov five minutes later before Anton Bober's penalty on the hour but Mordovia ahead.
But two goals in the final eight minutes, from Petr Nemov and substitute Roman Grigoryan, earned Krylya their third win of the season.
Hacken moved to within two points of the Allsvenska summit with a 2-0 away win over Gefle.
Both goals came in the second half, with Abdul Waris breaking the deadlock in the 54th minute and Nasiru Mohammed giving them breathing space with less than 20 minutes left.
The win puts Hacken on 42 points from 22 matches, two behind Elfsborg.
Malmo matched Hacken's tally by beating Atvidabergs 1-0 to sit third on goal difference.
Ricardinho got the only goal from the penalty spot in the 73rd minute.
At the other end of the standings, Orebro came from behind to climb off the bottom of the table with a 2-1 away win over Kalmar.
The hosts led through Abiola Dauda's 26th-minute goal, but after Alhassan Kamara levelled early in the second half there was late drama.
Emin Nouri conceded a penalty - and earned a second yellow card in the process - which William Atashkadeh converted to earn the points for the visitors.
