Manchester United regains top spot, Inter extends lead

Latest update : 2009-04-06

Manchester United defeated Aston Villa in injury time and moved a point clear of Liverpool while, in Italy, Inter Milan took another step towards their fourth straight Serie A after Juventus could only draw 3-3 at home with Chievo.

REUTERS - Manchester United regained top spot in the Premier League one point ahead of overnight leaders Liverpool thanks to a stoppage-time winner against Aston Villa on Sunday.

German champions Bayern Munich were hammered 5-1 by Vfl Wolfsburg, who go top of the Bundesliga on goal difference from Hamburg SV.



ENGLAND

Teenage debutant Federico Macheda's stoppage-time goal gave Manchester United a 3-2 win over Aston Villa and moved them a point clear of Liverpool, who had topped the table overnight following their 1-0 victory against Fulham.

Like Macheda, Liverpool midfielder Yossi Benayoun had also came off the bench to score in injury time.

United have 68 points with eight matches left, one ahead of Liverpool, who have played a game more. Chelsea are third on 64 points after their 2-0 win at Newcastle United, which spoiled former striker Alan Shearer's return to the struggling club as temporary manager.



GERMANY

VfL Wolfsburg went top of the Bundesliga for the first time in more than four years with a stunning 5-1 demolition of champions Bayern Munich.

In-form striker Grafite and Edin Dzeko scored twice each as Wolfsburg enjoyed their eighth straight win. Felix Magath's team have 51 points with eight matches left, ahead of Hamburg, 1-0 winners over Hoffenheim, on goal difference.

Hertha Berlin suffered a sobering 3-1 home defeat against Borussia Dortmund to have their title hopes dented, dropping to third on 49 points, one ahead of fourth-placed Bayern.



ITALY

Inter Milan took another step towards their fourth straight Serie A title after Mauricio Isla's own goal sealed a lucky 1-0 win at impressive Udinese.

Jose Mourinho's side increased their lead at the top to nine points with eight matches left after Juventus could only draw 3-3 at home with Chievo, whose three goals all came from Sergio Pellissier.

AC Milan left it very late to beat relegation candidates Lecce 2-0. Ronaldinho and Filippo Inzaghi headed home in injury time.

SPAIN

Barcelona maintained their six-point lead over Real Madrid in the Primera Liga with nine games left to play, after both won 1-0 away from home.

Barca striker Samuel Eto'o netted his 26th goal of the campaign just before the break at Real Valladolid, as Pep Guardiola successfully rotated his squad ahead of Wednesday's Champions League quarter-final with Bayern Munich.

Champions Real have only the league left to fight for and made it 13 wins from 14 when Gonzalo Higuain scored a great individual goal just after the re-start in Malaga.
