Russian Premier League
Lokomotiv Moscow picked up their first win in seven Premier League matches with a 1-0 triumph over a Krylya Sovetov side who are tumbling fast towards the bottom three.
Senegal international striker Dame N'Doye netted the only goal of the game after just four minutes as Lokomotiv climbed up to eighth spot on 25 points.
Krylya, meanwhile, are now 13th in the 16-team league after suffering their fifth successive league defeat. The Samara-based outfit have now won just once in 12 league matches, having previously lost just once in 15 outings stretching back to last season.
In today's other game, ninth-placed Krasnodar beat seventh-placed Terek Grozny 3-0.
A 13th-minute penalty from Joaozinho put Krasnodar ahead, his fellow Brazilian Wanderson made it 2-0 four minutes later and Eugeni Shipitsyn completed the scoring just after half-time.
Turkish Super Lig
Trabzonspor are three points off top spot in the Super Lig table after a 2-1 victory at Orduspor.
Its a tight league this season and victory saw the visitors leap up for five places to sixth thanks to two second-half strikes.
Marc Janko put Trabzonspor in front after 61 minutes before his strike was cancelled out by Bogdan Stancu 12 minutes from time.
However mid-table Orduspor could not hold out and just four minutes later substitute Olcan Adin scored what turned out to be the winner.
Asteras Tripoli moved to just three points off second place in the Superleague after a comfortable 3-0 win over fourth-placed Atromitos.
Sebastian Bartolini gave his side a 14th minute lead which they would not relinquish as Sakis Tsiolis' side made light work of their opponents.
Ximo Navarro doubled their advantage 10 minutes later, with the same player putting Asteras three goals to the good in the 57th minute.
Randers jumped above Odense and up to third in the Superliga table after a 3-2 win at the AutoC Park.
Jonas Borring was the hero with his 89th minute strike winning the game, with the goal coming just two minutes after he had been brought on by manager Colin Todd.
Randers went ahead in the 21st minute through Nicolai Brock-Madsen before Morten Skoubo levelled eight minutes later.
Ronnie Schwartz put the home side back in front after 67 minutes before they were again pegged back, this time by Marcus Pedersen.
The game looked destined to end in a draw before Borring was on hand to score the winner late on.
