European Monday Round-up

A summary of the football action across Europe on Monday evening.

Football News: Diego Capel Ricky van Wolfswinkel

Portuguese Primeira Liga

Sporting had to come from behind for a 2-1 home win over Gil Vicente and their first victory of the Liga season.

The hosts had collected just two points from their opening three games and they fell behind this evening to Luis Carlos' seventh-minute strike.

Diego Capel levelled proceedings in the 76th minute before Ricky van Wolfswinkel scored the decisive goal five minutes from time, although substitute Zakaria Labyad was sent off in the closing stages to slightly sour the victory.

Luis Leal scored a fantastic hat-trick to give Estoril a 3-1 win over Maritimo in an encounter that saw both teams finish with 10 men.

Maritimo were a man down as early as the fifth minute when Ruben Ferreira saw red before strikes from Leal (29, 38 and 62) set Estoril on their way to victory.

The playing field was evened up when Alberto Carlos was dismissed in the 67th minute for Estoril while substitute Granemann Adilson scored a consolation for Maritimo 10 minutes from time.

Swedish Allsvenska

Wilton Figueiredo struck five minutes from time to rescue a 1-1 draw for Malmo FF at Helsingborgs IF in the Allsvenska.

The visitors had the chance to move level on points with leaders BK Hacken and IF Elfsborg in second place but they fell behind to Jere Uronen's 56th-minute effort.

However, Figueiredo did at least grab a share of the spoils for Malmo with his late goal.

In today's other game, bottom side GAIS claimed a goalless draw at IFK Goteborg.

Greel Superleague

Panathinaikos continue to trail in the wake of Olympiacos in the Greek Superleague, having been held to a 1-1 draw at home to Atromitos tonight.

While Olympiacos have 12 points from 12, Pana have just five, with tonight`s draw the latest disappointment in a season that has yet to get going.

Jose Toche did give them the lead with a 40th-minute penalty, but Walter Iglesias levelled with 13 minutes left to leave the home fans disappointed.

Danish Superleague

AaB passed up the chance to move top of the Superliga this evening as they went down 2-0 at home to Esbjerg.

Martin Braithwaite's second-half brace proved decisive, lifting the visitors off the bottom of the table.

AaB remain two points behind leaders FC Copenhagen after 10 games.

Turkish Super Lig

Fenerbache maintained their unbeaten start to the Super Lig season with a goalless draw at home to Trabzonspor.

However, they missed out on the chance to go second - behind Galatasary - following their third draw in their opening five matches.

The result was also the first time Fenerbache had dropped points at home this season following two successive wins.
