ENGLAND.Premier League leader Manchester United had to settle for a 1-1 tie at home with surprise Reading Saturday in the fifth round of the FA Cup at Old Trafford. Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester City, Watford and Plymouth Argyle of the second-level League Championship were the only teams to win berths in the quarterfinals, while Premier League champions Chelsea sailed into the quarterfinals with a 4-0 win over Norwich City. West Bromwich is the only other League Championship team still alive after holding Middlesbrough to a 2-2 tie. Arsenal faces a replay at Blackburn Rovers after a 0-0 draw at the Emirates Stadium.

Werder fell to Hamburg, 2-0, on a pair of Rafael van der Vaart goals for its third straight loss. Bayern Munich lost, 1-0. at Alemannia Aachen for its second defeat in three games since the return of Ottmar Hitzfeld as head coach. VfB Stuttgart took over second place from Bremen thanks to a 4-0 win at Eintracht Frankfurt. First-place Schalke, which leads by five points, had to settle for a 2-2 tie with Wolfsburg after blowing a two-goal lead.

ITALY.First-place Inter Milan won its 16th successive Serie A win by beating Cagliari, 1-0, and opened up a 14-point lead when second-place Roma lost, 1-0, at Empoli. Defender Nicolas Burdisso scored the game's only goal in the 11th minute, heading in Zlatan Ibrahimovic's cross. Palermo was held to a 1-1 tie by relegation candidate Chievo Verona and fell 20 points behind Inter.
