Dortmund closed the gap at the top of the Bundesliga and Fiorentina climbed up to second in Serie A as the UEFA Europa League teams contested their last domestic fixtures before matchday six.

Thomas Tuchel's Dortmund now lie five points behind Bayern München in Germany after posting a last-gasp 2-1 win at Wolfsburg, Shinji Kagawa making the difference deep in added time. Fiorentina were more comfortable, on the other hand, downing Udinese 3-0 to jump ahead of Napoli, who lost 3-2 at Bologna despite a Gonzalo Higuaín double.

Liverpool's promising recent run was halted, meanwhile, as they succumbed 2-0 at Newcastle, but there was joy for Beşiktaş as they returned to the Turkish summit at the expense of fellow group stage hopefuls Fenerbahçe. As for Monaco, they triumphed away to Bastia to go fourth in France, and Ajax scored five times against Heerenveen to maintain their three-point Eredivisie lead.
