Can anyone catch Paris St-Germain? Now 16 points clear at the top of Ligue 1, probably not. It's a completely different story in Serie A where four points separate the top five after Juventus joined the party near the summit. Thanks for your company. We are back on Saturday with action from La Liga - where Barcelona and Real Madrid are both in action - as well as the rest of Europe. Until then...

All eyes on Neville

La Liga preview

.
.

It is not often Valencia steal the attention from Real Madrid and Barcelona. Yet this week's appointment of Gary Neville as boss at the Mestalla means all eyes will be on the former Manchester United and England defender - even though he does not officially take charge of his first game until next week.

Instead it is Neville's younger brother, Phil, and interim head coach Voro who will take charge of Saturday's home game against league leaders Barcelona (19:30 GMT). Barca start the weekend with a four point lead at the top, 

Real Madrid, who are six points off the summit, return to the Bernabeu for the first time since their humiliating 4-0 defeat to Barcelona on 21 November when lowly Getafe visit on Saturday (15:00 GMT).

Second-placed Atletico Madrid are at Granada on Saturday (17:15 GMT).

Saturday: Deportivo La Coruna v Seville, Granada v Atletico Madrid, Real Betis v Celta Vigo, Real Madrid v Getafe, Valencia v Barcelona.

Sunday: Athletic Bilbao v Malaga, Real Sociedad v Eibar, Sporting Gijon v Las Palmas, Villarreal v Rayo Vallecano.

Lazio 0-2 Juventus

How anxious will Napoli, Inter Milan, Fiorentina and Roma be feeling? Juventus managed just one win from the opening six Serie A games but they are two minutes from a fifth straight victory that sends them right into the mix near the top of the table.

Juventus are five minutes away from another win. There's little urgency from Lazio and the game is fizzling out as thousands of home fans head for the exits. The only noise in the Stadio Olimpio is coming from the supporters who have made the journey from Turin. They are singing loud and proud.
