Feyenoord will be brimming with confidence ahead of matchday two of the UEFA Europa League after recording yet another victory on domestic duty this weekend.

The Eredivisie leaders, who visit Fenerbahçe on Thursday, have won all their competitive fixtures in every competition this season after sweeping aside Roda on Sunday, Nicolai Jørgensen striking twice in a 5-0 victory. Fenerbahçe also prevailed, as did Group A rivals Zorya and Manchester United, who dispatched Premier League champions Leicester 4-1.

Francesco Totti brought up a notable landmark as he buried his 250th goal in Serie A ahead of his 40th birthday on Tuesday, though it came in a losing cause as Roma succumbed 3-1 at Fiorentina. There was misery too for Schalke as their Bundesliga struggles continued, the Royal Blues now without a single point after five games following their 2-1 defeat at Hoffenheim – their worst start in 49 years.

Sparta Praha likewise suffered a painful reverse as they went down 2-0 to Slavia Praha in the 286th capital derby. In contrast, Maccabi Tel-Aviv downed arch-rivals Hapoel Tel-Aviv 5-0 in Israel to extend their lead at the summit.
