The Latest: Bayern Munich whipped Wolfsburg, 4-1, on Sunday to move five points clear in the title race. The top-of-the-table clash began tipping Bayern’s way on Viviane Asseyi’s 26th minute goal and went 2-0 to halftime thanks to a late strike from Marina Hegering. Lena Gosseling hit a penalty for Wolfsburg which was the first goal conceded all season by Bayern but it was not enough to seriously threaten the leaders. Elsewhere, Turbine Potsdam secured their hold on third place with a 1-0 win at Frankfurt and eight different players scored in Werder Bremen’s 5-3 victory over MSV Duisburg.

The Latest: Paris Saint-Germain showed no mercy against Issy on Sunday, sending 14 goals past Solene Froger. Former NWSL star Nadia Nadim netted six of the 14 goals. Kadidiatou Diani and Marie-Antoinette Katoto each had a brace. The result may have a comedic ring to it but it moved PSG to +35 for the season to +26 for Lyon, a differential that could be important if the sides wind up tied. Lyon conceded for the second time this season but had little trouble with Soyaux, winning 5-1. Bordeaux won 2-0 at Le Havre and moved into the third Champions League spot as Montpellier were surprised 1-0 at Dijon.

The Latest: An epic weekend saw Manchester United rally from 2-0 down at halftime to draw Manchester City 2-2 while Chelsea drew Arsenal 1-1 on a 90th minute own goal after going down in the 86th. Everton also drew Reading, 1-1, meaning the top five remains unchanged. The biggest losers in the sequence were City who remain five points off the pace and two points out of a Champions League position with two teams to get by. In Bristol, Ebony Salmon scored in the 90th minute to give Bristol City a 2-2 draw against Tottenham Hotspur and their first point of the season.

The Latest: Barcelona soundly defeated rivals Atletico Madrid, 3-0, Wednesday night to remain perfect on the season though a series of postponements has them third on the table. Granadilla Tenerife won twice on the week — 2-1 over Real Madrid and then 2-0 over Logrono — to move into the provisional top spot on the table. Tenerife have yet to play Barcelona and still host Atletico, who they drew earlier this season in Madrid. All three of those matches are set for 2021. Postponements have continued to create massive imbalance in the table. Tenerife, Atletico and Valencia are the only clubs to have played eight matches while Rayo Vallecano have played only three times.
