SPAIN. After the third game since he joined second division Xerez on loan from Villarreal, Jozy Altidore has yet to see action. First-place Xerez beat Salamanca, 2-1.

Carlos Bocanegra went the distance for Rennes in a 1-1 tie with Nancy. Freddy Adu didn't suit up for Monaco's 1-0 loss to Marseille.
