[EUROPEAN RACES] Real Madrid's eight-game winning streak in Spain ended, while Bayern Munich broke the deadlock at the top of the Bundesliga standings.

FRANCE. In the round of 32 of the French Cup, CF2 (fifth-level) Carquefou stunned Nancy, third in the First Division, with a 2-1 overtime victory thanks to Sebastien Le Paih's goal in the 117th minute.

Leader Lyon needed a free kick from Brazilian striker Fred 10 minutes from time to earn a 1-0 win over CF1 (fourth division) Croix-de-Savoie.

GERMANY. On the first day after the resumption of play in Germany's Bundesliga, Bayern Munich broke the tie at the top with Werder Bremen when it defeated Hansa Rostock, 2-1, and Bremen fell at home to Bochum, 2-1.

Bayern Munich edged Rostock thanks to first-half goals from Franck Ribery and Luca Toni. Ribery went off at halftime with a hamstring injury, however, and is doubtful for France's friendly against Spain on Wednesday.

Werder Bremen was leading until Benjamin Auer scored the equalizer for Bochum in the 68th minute. Werder had center back Naldo sent off two minutes later and Algerian international Anthar Yahia scored the late winner for Bochum.

Earlier this week, Werder Bremen's first and second teams were knocked out of the German Cup round of 16.

ITALY. Inter Milan extended its lead in Serie A to eight points when it beat Empoli, 1-0, on Zlatan Ibrahimovic's first-half penalty.

Inter played the last hour with 10 men after France midfielder Patrick Vieira's red card for dissent.

Second-place Roma lost, 3-0, at Siena on goals by Mario Frick and Simone Vergassola and Max Tonetto's own goal.

AC Milan players Kaka and Alexandre Pato suffered injuries in the 1-0 win over Fiorentina and were dropped from Brazil's roster for its upcoming friendly against Ireland.

Kaka injured his left knee, while Pato, whose goal gave him four in five games, twisted his right ankle and could be out 2-3 weeks.

SPAIN. Playing in their first La Liga season in 27 years, Almeria achieved one of the biggest surprises of the 2007-08 season when it beat leader Real Madrid, 2-0, at the Estadio Mediterraneo on Saturday.

Goals from Juanito and Alvaro Negredo gave Almeria the win and ended Real Madrid's eight-game winning streak.

Barcelona moved within six points of Madrid with a 1-0 win at home to Osasuna thanks to Xavi's goal two minutes from time.

Valencia recorded its first La Liga win in 10 games with a 2-0 victory at Valladolid.
