[EUROPEAN RACES] On a day it marked the 50th anniversary of the Munich air crash that killed 23 people, including eight United players, Manchester United fell to Manchester City, 2-1, to further threaten its title hopes.

City for first-half goals from Darius Vassell and Zimbabwean newcomers Benjani Mwaruwari to hand Manchester United their first home defeat of the season. The loss leaves Arsenal with the chance to open up a five-point lead at the top of the EPL if it beats Blackburn Rovers in London on Monday.

Third-place Chelsea's 0-0 tie with Liverpool left the Blues temporarily five points behind Arsenal.

Fourth-place Everton, a 1-0 winner over Liverpool, moved three points ahead of its Merseyside rivals.

FRANCE. Lyon, chasing a seventh consecutive title, stayed four points ahead of second-place Bordeaux with a 4-1 win over Sochaux on Saturday. OL got two goals from midfielder Mathieu Bodmer. Bordeaux, beat last-place Metz, 3-0, with two goals from Argentine forward Fernando Cavenaghi. Third-place Nancy ended a nine-game winless streak with a 1-0 victory over Toulouse on a late penalty by defender Sebastien Puygrenier.

GERMANY. Bayern Munich blew a chance to pull away from Werder Bremen at the top of the Bundesliga standings when they played to a 1-1 tie on Saturday at the Allianz Arena. Brazilian midfielders scored both goals -- Diego in the sixth minute for Bremen and Ze Roberto, rumored to be headed to MLS, with the equalizer for Bayern, which still leads by three points over Bremen and five over Schalke, a 3-2 winner at Borussia Dortmund on Fabian Ernst's late goal in the Ruhr derby.

ITALY. Argentine Esteban Cambiasso and Honduran David Suazo scored to give Inter Milan a 2-0 win at Catania and maintain its eight-point lead at the top of Serie A. Roma beat Reggina, 2-0, thanks to goals from Christian Panucci and Mancini. Third-place Juventus rallied to beat Udinese, 2-1.

SPAIN. Real Madrid made a mockery of criticism about its conservative play with a 7-0 victory over Valladolid that moved it eight points ahead of second-place Barcelona in la Liga race. Raul and Guti both scored twice, Julio Baptista, Arjen Robben and Royston Drenthe had one goal apiece. Barcelona drew, 1-1, at Sevilla thanks to a goal by Xavi 14 minutes from time.
