Matt Miazga was at the heart of the Alaves defence that kept Atletico Madrid at bay on Saturday (pictured top), helping the bottom side in La Liga pick up their first points of the season having taken an early lead in the Basque Country. The 1-0 win lifts them to 19th, with Miazga completing the full game having been a late sub in the 1-0 midweek loss away to Espanyol.
In Ligue 1, Emerson was sent off for Lyon. He was adjudged to have made a last-man foul having accidentally tripped a Lorient player early on. The visitors scored from the resulting free-kick, but the 10 men of Lyon equalised in the second half to earn a point.
Coventry’s good start to the season goes on with two Blues featuring in their 3-0 win over Peterborough on Friday night. Jake Clarke-Salter was in the centre of the back three, with Ian Maatsen, who played all but the closing stages, at left wing-back. They are now third in England’s second tier.
