And that's everything from mainland Europe tonight. Barca's win was marred by an injury to Lionel Messi, Real Madrid could not regain top spot after being held by Malaga, while Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski set another Bundesliga record.

Catch up on all those continental-flavoured stories and then remember to join us tomorrow for live coverage of Italian leaders Inter Milan's top-of-the-table match against Fiorentina. Ciao!


Napoli 2-1 Juventus

However, the table is much better reading for Napoli than it is for Juventus. The reigning champions have taken just five points from their opening six matches, including three defeats. Last season? They only suffered three defeats in 38 Serie A matches...

Napoli 2-1 Juventus

But while the Napoli fans celebrate beating the Old Lady, a quick glance at the Serie A table might be a sobering thought. They are still six points behind leaders Inter Milan, who are aiming to preserve their 100% start when they play third-placed Fiorentina tomorrow.


Napoli 2-1 Juventus

All over at the Stadio San Paolo! Referee Daniele Orsato calls time on a pulsating clash - leading to rapturous celebrations from the home fans.

Napoli move into the top half with those three points, while Juve are left to contemplate their third defeat of the fledgling Serie A season.


Napoli 2-1 Juventus (90+1 mins)

Penalty? Juve think so. But the referee doesn't. And I'd say he is totally right. Napoli defender Koulibaly dives to the ground to block Alvaro Morata's shot after a long ball is pumped into the home box. Morata claims Koulibaly used his hands - he didn't.


Napoli 2-1 Juventus

Three minutes, 180 seconds. That's all Juve have left to salvage a draw....


Napoli 2-1 Juventus (89 mins)

Another Juve change. Attacking left-back Alex Sandro sprints on - he'll play almost as winger in these final moments.

Napoli 2-1 Juventus (87 mins)

Former Juve hero Pavel Nedved - still sporting those famous blond locks - looks very stern-faced as he watches on from the San Paolo stands. His presumably Juve-supporting mate sat next to him chugs down hard on a cig. Time running out.


Napoli 2-1 Juventus (85 mins)

Final roll of the tactical dice by Napoli as they attempt to see out victory. Striker Manolo Gabbiadini - no relation to former Sunderland and Derby hero Marco - appears in place of Gonzalo Higuian. The home side will be hoping Gabbiadini's fresh legs can help them keep the ball up near the Juve goal.

Napoli 2-1 Juventus (83 mins)

Hurrah! Paul Pogba has learned how to head the ball, climbing highest to meet Simeon Padoin's cutback from the right byeline. However, the Juve midfielder cannot direct his effort goalwards and Napoli keeper Pepe Reina watches the ball harmlessly fly past.

5 - Gonzalo Higuaín has scored all his five goals at home, record in the #SerieA 2015-16. Honor. #NapoliJuve

Napoli 2-1 Juventus (79 mins)

Still Juventus probe for an opening, but it just isn't happening for them. Roberto Pereira swings in a delicious cross from the right flank, straight onto the head of....well, it should have been straight onto the head of Paul Pogba. Somehow one of the world's most coveted players can't put his forehead on the ball and it rolls out of play for a throw-in.


Villarreal 1-0 Atletico

Villarreal's spell at the summit of the Spanish La Liga could be short-lived if Celta Vigo beat Eibar, but Eduardo Berrizo's side currently trail 1-0 in the first-half. 

Final fifteen

Napoli 2-1 Juventus (75 mins)

Ticking into the final quarter of an hour at Stadio San Paolo. Juve need a goal and they need one quick. Napoli are refusing to slow down their ferocious tempo though, barely allowing the Old Lady players any time on the ball.


Napoli 2-1 Juventus (73 mins)

Oooh! Alvaro Morata almost makes an instant impact. The Juve sub covers his mouth with his hands after placing a precise right-foot shot the wrong side of the Napoli post. Close.


Villarreal 1-0 Atletico

Diego Simeone revealed before the game that the nightmare scenario would see his side lose to a goal by Leo Baptistao, and the worst fears of Atletico's boss came true. Villarreal go top of La Liga, the fifth club to do so this season, thanks to the on-loan Brazilian striker scoring against his parent club. 


Napoli 2-1 Juventus (70 mins)

Another change for Juventus as they chase the game. Here's a man who they need right now - Alvaro Morata. The Spain striker, who has been missing recently through injury, starts his comeback from the bench to take the spot of Paulo Dybala.

Napoli 2-1 Juventus (68 mins)

Mario Lemina had never scored for Juventus until tonight. Can that spark a memorable comeback from the champions? Possibly. They're playing with a bit more spark now, Paul Pogba driving forward and shooting low at Pepe Reina.


Napoli 2-1 Juventus (65 mins)

Juve's Brazilian midfielder Hernanes pays the price for a sloppy display - giving away possession for Higuain's goal among other misplaced passes. He is hooked by Juve coach Max Allegri with on-loan Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado coming on.

GOAL - Napoli 2-1 Juventus

Mario Lemina (64 mins)

Wow - what a response! If Juve are heading towards another defeat then they're not going down without a fight. Seconds after Napoli's second, the Old Lady halve the gap when Mario Lemina appears at the far post to steer Paolo Dybala's deep cross past Napoli keeper Pepe Reina.

GOAL - Napoli 2-0 Juventus

Gonzalo Higuain (62 mins)

Juventus are heading for their third defeat in six games. Brilliant solo goal from Gonzalo Higuain, The Napoli striker pounces on a loose pass inside his own half from Hernanes, surges forward then buries a low angled shot under Gianluigi Buffon.

Villarreal 1-0 Atletico (80 mins)

Atletico still to fashion a clear chance in this second half, and Fernando Torres has been largely anonymous since he came on. Can the former Liverpool and Chelsea man grab his side a goal in the final 10 minutes?

Napoli 1-0 Juventus (59 mins)

Better stuff from Juventus, who are seeing much more of the ball in this second half. Paul Pogba pulls rank over a free-kick right on the edge of the Napoli penalty area...then smashes into the blue-shirted wall.

Moments later, Paolo Dybala creates some space for himself then firing a fierce angled shirt into another home defender.


Napoli 1-0 Juventus (56 mins)

Another pair of bookings, again evenly distributed by referee Daniele Orsato. Not sure what narked him at the break, but his mood has taken a turn for the worse. He books Juve left-back Patrice Evra and then scrawls the name of Napoli winger Jose Callejon in his notepad too after far-from-brutal fouls.


Villarreal 1-0 Atletico (75 mins)

Tomas Pina comes on to add a bit of muscle to the Villarreal midfield as Roberto Soldado's frustration grows, after the hapless forward is flagged offside despite being in his own half. 

Napoli 1-0 Juventus (52 mins)

After all that nonsense we get back down to the football. Juve defender Giorgio Chiellini attacks the delivery from the right flank but cannot keep his header under control.


Napoli 1-0 Juventus (51 mins)

Referee Daniele Orsato is starting to dish out yellow cards like confetti. And I don't particularly think he needs to. First he books Napoli defender Faouzi Ghoulam for a late challenge on Juve's Simone Padoin. Foul - yes. Booking - no. Ghoulam had his eyes firmly on the ball and it wasn't that bad. Then the official evens up the booking count with a caution for Juve defender Leonardo Bonucci. That is for some backchat after he ventures up from the back to contest the free-kick from Ghoulam's foul.


Villarreal 1-0 Atletico (65 mins)

Atletico boss Diego Simeone plays his last card, Oliver Torres replaced by Angel Correa, who slots into the right of midfield.

Napoli 1-0 Juventus (47 mins)

Almost an early chance for Juve. Paul Pogba pumps forward a long ball towards Paulo Dybala, forcing Napoli keeper Pepe Reina to come charging out of his goal to stick his head on the ball. But it doesn't matter. The linesman's flag is up for offside.


Napoli 1-0 Juventus

Both sets of players are back out on the pitch at Stadio San Paolo. Napoli, wearing their traditional light blue shirts, restart the action.

#bbceurofooty Whose decision was it to let Leo Baptistao play against his parent club? It just had to be him, didn't it.


Villarreal 1-0 Atletico (60 mins)

Nahuel Leiva is put through for Villarreal, but the substitute, on for goalscorer Leo Baptistao, stands on the ball and the chance goes begging in comical fashion.


Napoli 1-0 Juventus

Last piece I wrote, I stressed the importance of Marchisio and Khedira. Leadership and tactical intelligence. A struggle without them.


Villarreal 1-0 Atletico (52 mins)

Villarreal striker Roberto Soldado earns a yellow card for talking out of turn to the referee, as he demands more protection after being on the receiving end of a tasty challenge or two.


Napoli 1-0 Juventus

Phew. What a half! This match was highly anticipated by Italian football followers, despite the woeful starts by both starts, and it has not disappointed. Napoli well worth their slender lead against the reigning champions.


Napoli 1-0 Juventus (45+2 mins)

End-to-end stuff at Stadio Sao Paolo! Napoli winger Jose Callejon slices wide as the home side surge forward, then Juve almost bag at the other end after a swift counter. But that leaves the champions stretched at the back, Napoli storming forward on the counter-counter-attack, but Dries Mertens cannot bend his curling shot inside the far post.


Villarreal 1-0 Atletico

We're back under way at El Madrigal. Fernando Torres is on as part of a double substitution at half-time for Atletico, along with Luciano Vietto, the former Villarreal striker.

Napoli 1-0 Juventus

Three minutes for Juventus to do something to alter Max Allegri's half-time team-talk. But don't hold your breath. The hairdryer could be out.

Napoli 1-0 Juventus (42 mins)

What response have we seen from Juventus? Very little to be honest. They have offered little attacking threat and look - well, they are - a shadow of the side that cruised to the title last season.



Napoli 1-0 Juventus (39 mins)

Oh dear. A big blow to Napoli's hopes here. Goalscorer Lorenzo Insigne goes down clutching his right leg - and team-mate Gonzalo Higuain immediately does that he-needs-substituting-now motion with his hands. Shame for Insigne who - yet again - has been outstanding. He is replaced by Belgium winger Dries Mertens.
