Croatian international Ivan Rakitic scored one goal and set up another in his Spanish side Sevilla’s 5:1 demolition job over Real Betis last night. Also in Spain, Luka Modric’s fantastic long-range through ball to Karim Benzema set up Real Madrid’s 5:1 home win over Athletic Bilbao.
In England Mladen Petric was on the scoresheet for Fulham in his side’s 1:3 loss to Sunderland at home. In Germany, prolific goal scorer Mario Mandzukic was once again on the score sheet for Bayern Munich in their 1:1 draw with Nurnberg. It was Mandzukic’s 13th goal of the season. Veteran striker Ivica Olic played a part in his side Wolfsburg’s first goal in their 3:1 win over Hoffenheim.
