[AMERICANS ABROAD] Borussia Moenchengladbach, with Michael Bradley in midfield, fell, 2-1, to Bayern Munich to sink further into the relegation zone. But in Mexico, a U.S. product helped his team avoid the drop and defender Michael Orozco scored for the first time.

In front of a home crowd of 69,000, Bayern Munich celebrated its first win since Juergen Klinsmann's sacking when it beat Gladbach, 2-1. Bradley went the distance for Gladbach, which remains second-to-last and is now three points deep in the relegation zone.

In Mexico, 23-year-old Texas product Marco Vidal played 84 minutes for Indios in a 1-0 win at Cruz Azul that saved his team from relegation.

Also in Mexico, U.S. defender Michael Orozco scored San Luis' only goal, with a header, in a 3-1 loss to Santos. It was Orozco's first goal since the Californian's first division debut in 2006. Jose Francisco Torres was subbed after 62 minutes in Pachuca's 5-1 win over Chiapas. Playoff-bound Pachuca leads Mexico's overall standings.

ENGLAND. Keeper Tim Howard celebrated a 2-0 with Everton over Sunderland. The win nearly secured fifth-place Everton of a UEFA Cup spot and moved it ahead of Aston Villa, which, with Brad Friedel in goal, can reclaim fifth place if it beats Hull City on Monday. The fifth- and sixth-place teams earn UEFA Cup spots. Clint Dempsey went the distance for Fulham in its 3-1 loss to Chelsea.

In the second tier, keeper Marcus Hahnemann went down, 2-1, with Reading against Birmingham, which secured promotion to the Premier League. Reading enters a four-team playoff for promotion to the EPL.

BELGIUM. Defender Oguchi Onyewu helped Standard Liege tie Zulte-Waregem, 0-0, and remain in a first-place tie with Anderlecht, which also tied.

FRANCE. Carlos Bocanegra played the full 90 for seventh-place Rennes in a 1-0 win at Paris SG.

SCOTLAND. Midfielder Maurice Edu was rated as one of Glasgow Rangers' best players in a 2-0 win over Hearts that keeps Rangers within a point of leader Celtic.
