European football: 'Water polo with feet', heavy snow and more

Bologna v Roma
There were three penalties and a whole lot of rain at Bologna v Roma

Barcelona players ran riot against Real Madrid in El Clasico, while Panathinaikos fans did a different kind of rioting in their derby.

There were wins for Bayern Munich and Paris St-Germain as usual too. But what else might you have missed across Europe's leagues? A protest, a "parody of football" and an amazing comeback, BBC Sport has a look.

Snow woe for Hoffenheim

Hoffenheim concede an own goal
Hoffenheim keeper Oliver Baumann could probably claim he couldn't see the ball as it flew past him

When your luck is out, it's out. And Hoffenheim, the Bundesliga's bottom club, could perhaps consider themselves the unluckiest team of the weekend after losing a snow-affected game that had no shots on target.

Hertha Berlin won 1-0, thanks to Eugen Polanski heading into his own net, in the first Bundesliga game without an effort on target since Opta started recording those stats in 2004.

Ajax win despite empty-seats protest

Ajax fans
Ajax are three points clear at the top despite discontent from fans and club legends

Ajax fans left their seats empty in the first half of Saturday's game to protest against the sacking of youth boss Wim Jonk, the former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder.

Netherlands great Johan Cruyff is leaving his role as club advisor in an argument with the board about their youth structure.

Fans or no fans, the league leaders eased to a 5-1 victory over struggling Cambuur Leeuwarden.

Cambuur have not won any of their opening 13 Eredivisie games, but luckily for them there is someone worse. De Graafschap are five points adrift at the bottom with two points. Those two clubs meet next Friday.

Jesus inflicts more misery on old club

Jorge Jesus
Jorge Jesus started his playing career at Sporting

It's rare that a manager leaves his club of six years for their biggest rivals, and it was huge news in Portugal when Jorge Jesus - Tim Sherwood's nemesis - quit Benfica for Sporting Lisbon in the summer.

But the move could barely have worked out better for the controversial maverick.

The clubs have met three times this season since his switch, and Jesus' Sporting have won all of them - the latest a 2-1 win in round four of the Portuguese Cup.

Sporting are top of the league table, with champions Benfica, who won the last two titles under Jesus, back in fourth.

'Water polo with feet'

Bologna's keeper makes a save
The Stadio Renato Dall'Ara could have hosted swimming lessons after the game

Roma boss Rudi Garcia did not take their 2-2 draw in Bologna well as they missed out on the chance to go top of Serie A on a pitch drenched by rain.

Mattia Destro's 87th-minute penalty rescued a point for the struggling hosts.

And Garcia told Mediaset Premium: "There was little football to see tonight, how could there be in these conditions?

"It was possible to stop the game and the referee should not have gone ahead. It wasn't football, it was water polo with feet.

"The only positive from today is that there weren't any injuries. I can't talk about football, it was a parody of football."

La Real are not missing Moyes

David Moyes only managed two wins in 11 La Liga games this season before getting the boot at Real Sociedad.

Just like a dumped girlfriend or boyfriend, he is no doubt still following their progress on Facebook - and he won't have been too happy to see how they got on in their first game without him.

His replacement Eusebio Sacristan guided them to a 2-0 victory over Sevilla, who are in this season's Champions League.

Good day for...

Saturday was a good time to be a former Premier League player in the Turkish Super Lig.

Former Manchester United pair Nani and Robin van Persie were on the scoresheet as Fenerbahce won 3-1 at Mersin Idmanyurdu.

Lukas Podolski and Samuel Eto'o netted for their respective teams as Galatasaray and Antalyaspor drew 3-3.

And Hugo Rodallega struck twice as Akhisar Belediyespor beat Bursaspor 3-1.

Bad day for...

Hobro IK must have been thinking they were going to close the gap on Danish relegation rivals Esbjerg when they went 4-1 ahead at the Blue Water Arena.

But Mick van Buren's 93rd-minute equaliser capped off Esbjerg's comeback and kept them six points above the basement boys, who are in only their second season in the top flight.

Esbjerg also scored an injury-time equaliser when the sides last met in September.
