All European domestic leagues are back and flying after two weeks of boring International football. The only top club unhappy at the moment is Real Madrid because they lost again 2-1 at home against Levante. Jose Mourinho might say the same after watching two valuable points snatched away in injury time against Chelsea. For those who said the Los Blancos will not miss CR7, the opposite is proving to be true. Today, let us recognize World Class stars that performed well in Europe top five Leagues last weekend.
7. Kylian Mbappe- 1 Goal

PSG hammered Amiens SC 5-0 at home on Saturday to maintain a 100% record in Ligue 1. The Paris based side have now played 10 and won all of them. They lead the table with 30 points, 8 ahead of LOSC who are second. Kylian Mbappe scored one goal. Others were netted by Rabiot, Draxler, Marquinhos and Diaby.
The victory was a clear message to their next opponent in UEFA Champions League Napoli. The Italians will visit Parc De Princes on Wednesday. This game will be a must win for both teams.
6. Mohamed Salah- 1 Goal

Liverpool fans can breathe a sigh of relief because they are winning games that in other seasons would be draws or defeats. This is down to the strong and expensive backline. Last weekend, Mohamed Salah goal in the 24th minute was enough to secure the points to stay closer to Manchester City. Huddersfield played very well and the neutrals will say they deserved at least a point. Jurgen Klopp will be happy to see the Egyptian back in the goals.
5. Mauro Icardi- 1 Goal (Winner)
Milan derby took place on Sunday night. Inter Milan was hosting their bitter rivals AC Milan at San Siro. The game had everything like we always know but Gattuso will not be happy with the final result. His side had done everything to earn a valuable point against their cross-town neighbours but his team switched off in the final seconds to throw away a valuable point.
Mauro Icardi against AC Milan since 2016/17 Serie A season:
🏟 5 games.
⚽ 5 goals.
He never scored to the Rossoneri during the previous 4 seasons with either Sampdoria or Inter (7 games).#Icardi pic.twitter.com/S8PSVMpI13

On the other hand, Luciano Spalletti will be happier. Mauro Icardi goal means they have now won 7 games since that 2-1 win against Tottenham Hotspurs in UEFA Champions League. The victory on Sunday also means they stay closer to Juventus and Napoli in the race for the Serie A crown with 19 points.
4. Robert Lewandowski- 2 Goals
— UEFA Champions League (@ChampionsLeague) October 20, 2018
The crisis is over at Bayern Munich because the team is back to winning ways. The Bundesliga Champions thrashed Wolfsburg 3-1 away from home on Saturday. The win means they now occupy the 4th spot on the table with 16 points, 4 behind leaders Borussia Dortmund who are still unbeaten in eight.
Niko Kovac will be a happy man right now especially because his main man Robert Lewandowski is back in the goals. The Poland International netted a brace in the 30th and 48th minute to give his side a healthy lead. The only negative is Arjen Robben red card.
