Play over the holiday weekend was limited to England, the Netherlands and Scotland. At the halfway mark, AZ is first in the Netherlands after its 1-0 win over NEC. In Scotland, Celtic moved seven points ahead of archrival Rangers with a 1-0 win at Ibrox. (Neither of Rangers' Americans, DaMarcus Beasley and Maurice Edu, dressed for the Old Firm derby.)
