The latest: Wolfsburg were held at home (0-0) by SGS Essen which, combined with Bayern Munich’s 4-0 win over Duisburg, has narrowed the gap atop the table to three points. After opening the season with 10 straight wins, Wolfsburg have taken only five of the last nine. The news is not all good for Bayern Munich though. They still trail the goal difference battle by 13 (Wolfsburg are +50; Bayern +37) and will need to bridge that gap to win if the sides end on level terms. The sides will meet in Munich on February 17 which is the next match day following an extended winter break. At the bottom of the table, Bayer Leverkusen edged Werder Bremen, 1-0 in a battle to see which of the two would be left in the relegation zone. SC Sand vs Turbine Potsdam and Hoffenheim vs Frankfurt were postponed.

The latest: Leaders Atletico Madrid and Barcelona posted narrow victories to maintain their places entrenched in the Champions League positions. Barca defeated Logrono 2-0 at home but it was a one-goal match until the 88th. Atletico’s win was 2-1 away to Real Betis but the hosts goal came in stoppage time making the final score somewhat misleading. Alba Redondo’s goal helped Albacete draw Malaga 1-1 and was her 12th of the season to lead the league. She has scored in five straight. Charlyn Corral also scored in Levante’s 2-0 victory over Athletic Club and sits one back with 11. Corral assisted on the other goal, both of which came in first half stoppage time.
