AZ Alkmaar 6 VVV Venlo 1 (Eredivisie, January 29, 2011) Kolbeinn Sightorsson scored a hat-trick within 26 minutes. Ahmed Musa pulled a goal back for VVV before the break. But a further brace from Sigthorsson and another from Johann Gudmundsson completed the rout.
Catania 0 AC Milan 2 (Serie A, January 29, 2011) The Serie A leaders looked up against it when Mark van Bommel was sent off on his league debut for two bookable offences but just before the hour Robinho opened the scoring after a Zlatan free-kick had been parried out. The win was completed with five minutes left, Zlatan Ibrahimovic tapping home number two from a Robinho cross.
Arles-Avignon 1 PSG 2 (Ligue 1, January 29, 2011) Mevlut Erdinc chipped home the opener on 18. Erdinc added the second four minutes after the break after a fine breakaway involving Giuly. Deme NDiaye reduced the deficit with a sensational volley into the top corner.
Caen 2 Auxerre 0 (Ligue 1, January 29, 2011) Benjamin Nivet and Kandia Traore were on the scoresheet in the second half.
A cupset looked on the cards on the stroke of half-time when Richard Chaplow burst into the Manchester United box and hammered a shot past Lindegaard to put Southampton 1-up.

Struggling Wolfsburg were carved out like a chicken after just two minutes by Borussia Dortmund, the runaway leaders played a series of passed before Lucas Barrios volleyed home a cross from close range. Five minutes from the break Dortmund went 2-up all-too-easily as a cross from the right picked out two unmarked Borussia players in the box and Nuri Sahin knocked in the second.
Hoffenheim got off to a great start at Schalke scoring after four minutes, Isaac Vorsah headed in a corner to give the visitors an early lead.
A wonderful half-volley from Ghanaian Charles Takyi from 30-yards fired St Pauli ahead against Cologne. Ten minutes from the break St Pauli doubled their lead when Charles Takyi claimed his second from a rebound.
After an average first half which Chelsea arguably shaded, Everton was far spunkier after the break and they capitalised on the bright sunlight in Cechs face as a Baines corner was headed home by Louis Saha. It looked like Everton would press on and claim a second, but then in the 74th minute Anelka freed Salomon Kalou on the right and the sub drilled a low shot in the far corner.
