What a journey around Europe this is. We start at Real Madrid and Spain. It has been a bad, bad time for the European Champions and it is going from bad to worse. They are now more concerned about not coming fifth than coming first in La Liga. We put you into the full Spanish picture including looking ahead to the debut of the second most expensive signing of all time. Less said the better…

There is a lot of love for Lazio, a different Liverpudlian Brazilian doing the business. Serie A remains Europe’s most compelling title race with Napoli and Juventus duking it out. What of Benevento?

There is a round up of France and Germany, a look at Neymar and Cavani, and a spot of a European Gutter thrown in.
