Italy, Serie A, Napoli - Inter 0:0
Goran Pandev was partnered by Diego Milito in a 4-3-1-2 formation with Wesley Sneijder back in the trequartista role.  It was a pretty quiet 1st half for Pandev and Inter but then in the 62nd minute, Pandev had the best chance of the game for Inter but his shot was straight at the keeper.  Pandev was substituted in the 71st minute when Cameroon international Samuel Eto'o came on but Inter failed to trouble the Napoli defense and it finished 0:0.

Besart Ibraimi was not among the 18 players called up by Schalke 04.

Germany, 1. Bundesliga, Eintracht Frankfurt - Freiburg 2:1
Oka Nikolov started in goal for Eintracht and made some good saves but it was his error that led to Freiburg's goal.  It was a harmless cross but Nikolov made an error and Freiburg took the shock lead.  Eintracht equalized in the 40th minute and won it in the 90th minute when January signing Halil Altintop scored from ten meters to give Eintracht all three points. Aleksandar Vasoski remains out with a knee injury.

France, Ligue 1, Auxerre - Rennes 1:0
Robert Popov continues to be left out by Auxerre.

Netherlands, Eredivisie, Heerenveen - Ajax 0:2
Goran Popov played all 90 minutes for Heerenveen and was at fault for the first goal scored by Ajax in the 49th minute.  Heerenveen's coach Jan Everse felt Popov and his fellow defender Kristian Nielsen were nonchalant and gifted Ajax a goal.  Heerenveen battled back and tried to score an equalizer but one of their players received a red card in the 73rd minute and that made things extremely difficult.  Eventually, Ajax put the game away in the 90th minute when they scored their 2nd goal.
