[EUROPEAN RACES] Manchester United knocked Arsenal out of the English Premier League race with a 2-1 win over Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday. Real Madrid (Spain) and Inter Milan (Italy) also moved closer to repeating as league champions, while Bayern Munich (Germany) opened up a double-digit lead in its bid to win the Bundesliga title. Lyon, winner of the last six French league titles, saw its lead over second-place Bordeaux fall to four points.

ENGLAND. Manchester United rallied for a 2-1 win over Arsenal on a Cristiano Ronaldo penalty and an Owen Hargreaves free kick. The result extended the swing at the top of the EPL to 14 points over the last two months. The Gunners, who led by five points, are now in third place, nine points behind United with four games to play. Chelsea can reduce United's lead to three points if it beats Wigan on Monday, but United has the added advantage of a big lead in the tiebreaker (goal difference -- plus-54 vs. plus-35).

FRANCE. Stephane Mbia scored in the 90th minute to give Rennes a 1-1 draw at Lyon and give Bordeaux new life in the Ligue 1 race. Argentine forward Fernando Cavenaghi scored twice to give Bordeaux a 2-1 win over Caen the next day that closed the gap on Lyon to four points.

GERMANY. Bayern Munich moved closer to winning their 21st German championship on Sunday by thrashing Borussia Dortmund, 5-0, and opening up a 10-point lead over second-place Werder Bremen, a 5-1 winner over Schalke 04 on Saturday. Bayern scored four goals in the first 22 minutes with Italy striker Luca Toni scoring twice after Lukas Podolski and Ze Roberto had struck inside 10 minutes.

ITALY. Inter Milan maintained its four-point lead over Roma with four games to play when it beat fourth-place Fiorentina, 2-0, on goals by Argentine Esteban Cambiasso and Ghanaian-Italian phenom Mario Balotelli. Roma came back from 1-0 down against Udinese to win, 3-1, thanks to second-half goals from Mirko Vucinic, Rodrigo Taddei and Ludovic Giuly.

SPAIN. Real Madrid opened up a nine-point lead with six games to play in La Liga when it beat Real Murcia, 1-0, on Wesley Sneijder's goal in the 59th minute. Second-place Barcelona tied Recreativo Huelva, 2-2, while third-place Villarreal lost, 1-0, at Almeria.
