Day Of Draws Video: La Liga, Serie A, EPL

Argentine forward Pablo Piatti slid home a low finish to put Almeria ahead an hour in, but Esteban Granero’s late equaliser spared Real Madrid the embarrassment of defeat at bottom club Almeria after a tepid 1-1 draw in La Liga at the Estadio Juegos del Mediterraneo.

Barcelona capitalised on Real Madrid's slip up by mauling Malaga 4-1 and extending their lead at the top of La Liga to four points.

Valencia stayed hot on the heels of third-placed Villarreal when Jeremy Mathieu and Pablo Hernandez scored in a 2-0 home win over Deportivo Coruna.

AC Milan were held to a 1-1 draw by a stern Lecce side at the Stadio Via del Mare to miss the opportunity to move six points clear at the top of Serie A. Juventus arrested a run of three games without a win to beat Bari 2-1 with Alberto Aquilani scoring a terrific later winner.

A late goal from substitute Libor Kozak stunned Sampdoria 1-0 and handed Lazio their first win of 2011, while an own goal by Maximiliano Pellegrino handed Roma a narrow 1-0 victory at Cesena.

Manchester United returned to the top of the English Premier League after a goalless draw against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane in a pulsating and entertaining scoreless encounter.

Kenny Dalglish is still awaiting for his first win since returning as Liverpool manager as the Reds could only manage a 2-2 draw with Everton in a spirited Merseyside derby at Anfield.

Asamoah Gyan struck a late equaliser as below par Sunderland earned a 1-1 draw against Newcastle in Tyne-Wear derby, while Second City derby between Birmingham and Aston Villa also ended in a 1-1 draw.
