A much-changed Bayern still proved too strong for the side coached by Niko Kovač, who will take charge of the champions next season. Niklas Dorsch struck just ahead of the break on his Bayern debut before Sandro Wagner scored for the eighth time in ten league games. Rafinha and Niklas Süle sealed the victory in the final three minutes.

Mohamed Salah spurned the best opening early on as Liverpool were held to a frustrating draw by relegation-threatened Stoke at Anfield. Although Jürgen Klopp made a number of changes to his starting XI, Salah and Roberto Firmino played the entire match but failed to prise the goal that would have lifted the Reds to second in the Premier League.
Roma 4-1 Chievo

Patrik Schick scored for the second league game in succession to give the hosts an early fillip before Edin Džeko put the Giallorossi two up at the interval. Juan Jesus was sent off when conceding a penalty in the 56th minute, but Alisson Becker saved Roberto Inglese's spot kick. Roma made the visitors pay with further goals from Stephan El Shaarawy and Džeko's 16th of the Serie A campaign.
Real Madrid 2-1 Leganés

Gareth Bale and Borja Mayoral struck at either end of the first half to set Real Madrid on their way to a first home win in four attempts. They were made to sweat, however, when Darko Brasanac pulled one back midway through the second half, but they held firm to end the weekend still four points shy of second-placed Atlético with a game in hand.
