Goodbye

What an eventful weekend in Europe.

Hat-tricks for Gareth Bale and Lionel Messi, Zinedine Zidane's managerial career at Real Madrid is off to a winning start and Atletico Madrid are top of the table at the halfway point of their season.

Over in Italy, Inter Milan lose their grip on top spot to Napoli but Juventus are closing in fast.

Many thanks for your company. 

What makes a 'perfect' Ballon d'Or winner?

It's the Ballon d'Or on Monday where we find out who is the best player in the world. Will it be Lionel Messi? Cristiano Ronaldo? Neymar? All will be revealed this time tomorrow.

But what makes a 'perfect' Ballon d'Or winner?

BBC Sport has been finding out.

Ten in a row?

Sampdoria 1-2 Juventus

Who is standing in the way of Juventus and a 10th successive Serie A win? It's mid-table Udinese, who entertain the Old Lady next Sunday.

FULL-TIME - Sampdoria 1-2 Juventus

RED CARD TO SAMPDORIA

Sampdoria 1-2 Juventus

Any hopes of a late Sampdoria comeback vanish as Niklas Moisander is shown red for an ugly challenge on Simone Zaza. 

YELLOW CARD

Sampdoria 1-2 Juventus

Scrappy ending as Sami Khedira is booked for a mistimed challenge on Luis Muriel.

CLOSE!

Sampdoria 1-2 Juventus

Four additional minutes. Sampdoria have found some additional energy from somewhere and Buffon takes the ball off the head of Alejandro Rodriguez as the Sampdoria forward looks set to strike.

Around five minutes of normal time left. Little sign of Sampdoria getting an equaliser. Juventus are using all their experience to play keep-ball as they chase a fifth straight Serie A title.

'Immense'

Celta Vigo 0-2 Atletico Madrid

Atletico slow to start tonight, but their final hour was magnificent. So strong all over the pitch. Griezmann & Godin, immense (again).

Messi? Ronaldo? Neymar? Who will win the Ballon d'Or and why?

Dan Lennie:  Messi is the best on the world but Ronaldo is now the top goal scorer at the most successful club in the world. Think he'll edge it because of this.

Sampdoria 1-2 Juventus

There's around 10 minutes of normal time remaining in Italy. Juventus are looking pretty in pink. They are closing in on a ninth straight league win which will take them level on points with second-placed Inter Milan.

Date for the diary

Celta Vigo 0-2 Atletico Madrid

It's a job well done for Atletico. Their away game at Barcelona on 30 January is a match not to be missed. It could go a long way to deciding who will be the champions of Spain.

Celta Vigo 0-2 Atletico Madrid

Corner for Celta but it comes to nothing. The hosts, who hammered Barcelona here back in September, have been disappointing and displayed very little cutting edge. This has been far too comfortable for Diego Simeone's side.

Grandstand finish

Sampdoria 1-2 Juventus

Granstand finish in Genoa as Sampdoria get a goal back as Antonio Cassano tuck a low finish beyond Gianlugi Buffon to give the mid-table hosts hope.

CLOSE!

Sampdoria 0-2 Juventus

Almost a goal for Sampdoria. Eder leaps to meet Antonio Cassano's cross and heads just wide.

Super-sub Carrasco doubles the lead

Celta Vigo 0-2 Atletico Madrid

That's it. The point are heading back to Spain's capital and Atletico are heading to the top of La Liga. They double the lead through substitute Yannick Carrasco who takes advantage of a poor Celta clearance to drill home. Hunders of Celta fans have had enough and are heading for the exits.

Celta Vigo 0-1 Atletico Madrid

Celta are powering forward. There are sky blue shirts lining up in the Atletico box but once again the final ball is poor.

Neymar to win #BallondOr2016, he's been as influential as messi has to winning the treble, also stepped up in messi's absence #bbceurofooty

Celta Vigo 0-1 Atletico Madrid

Is there a late twist coming at the Balaidos? There are 15 minutes left. It's absolutely throwing it down but Atletico have the lead and are heading back to the top of La Liga unless Celta can come up with something special.

Sampdoria 0-2 Juventus

Disappointed that Samp at home haven't been more positive and really come at us. But 2-0 now at 47mins, it's game over. #bbceurofooty

Khedira doubles Juve's lead

Sampdoria 0-2 Juventus

The second half is just seconds old when Juventus double their lead. It's a decent finish too from Sami Khedira who picks his spot after a perfect through ball by Paulo Dybala. That should be win number nine for Juve.

'Juve need another goal'

Sampdoria 0-1 Juventus

Over in Italy, goalscorer Paul Pogba has been giving a few thoughts during the interval to television.

"It was an important goal, but the game's not over yet," says the former Manchester United player. "Sampdoria are attacking well and we need at least another goal. We must keep going like this."

Decent

Celta Vigo 0-1 Atletico Madrid

That's 14 goals for #Griezmann this season 10 in La Liga and 4 in the CL, he's got 8 of Atleti's last 14.. essential

Celta Vigo 0-1 Atletico Madrid

Half an hour left. Celta are pressing but, more often than not, are let down by their final ball. Atletico are good value for their lead.

#bbceurofooty The French making the difference in tonight's games. Must be a reasonable be for Euro2016.

SUBSTITUTION

Celta Vigo 0-1 Atletico Madrid

Perfect start to the second half for Atletico who have come flying out. Diego Simeone responds to his side taking the lead by making a change. Midfielder Augusto Fernandez is replaced by Yannick Carrasco. It's a like for like swap.

HALF TIME

Sampdoria 0-1 Juventus

Juventus are 45 minutes away from a a ninth straight Serie A win thanks to Paul Pogba.

Griezmann fires Atletico ahead

Celta Vigo 0-1 Atletico Mandrid

Will this man find the net against Atletico? We're back under way at the Balaidos.

CLOSE!

Sampdoria 0-1 Juventus

Juventus are looking to wrap up the points early in Genoa. Paulo Dybala bends a dangerous free kick that Emiliano Viviano beats away. Half-time approahing.

'Worst so far'

Real Sociedad 2-0 Valencia

Valencia have been decent enough in most of their games under Neville, but today was pretty poor. Worst performance of his tenure, I'd say.

Neville still seeking first La Liga win

Real Sociedad 2-0 Valencia

.
.

Gary Neville is still without a league win as Valencia manager after two goals from Brazilian striker Jonathas gave Real Sociedad a 2-0 victory. Jonathas scored twice in three minutes in the second half to condemn Neville to defeat in San Sebastian.

The former Manchester United and England defender has two losses and three draws in La Liga. His team face struggling Rayo Vallecano and mid-table Deportivo La Coruna in their next two league games.

Celta Vigo 0-0 Atletico Madrid

This is definitely a game for the purist. 

19 - Only Jan Oblak (18) has made fewer touches than Augusto Fernández (19) in the first half of #CELvsATM. Pressure.
