Borussia Dortmund went back to the top in Germany by thrashing Eintracht Frankfurt 6-1, helped by a goal from Ghana's Otto Addo.
They were helped into pole position by Hansa Rostock's 3-2 defeat of former leaders Bayern Munich, which was started by an opener from Nigeria's Victor Agali.
Ghana defender Sammy Kuffour equalised with his first of the season, but Agali's strike partner Bachirou Salou restored the lead after a superb run to score for the second week in a row.
Cameroon's Samuel Eto's set Real Mallorca on the way to a 2-1 victory over reigning Spanish champions Deportivo Coruna with a third minute goal.

Algeria's Abdelhafid Tasfaout has been in good form recently and gained Guingamp three points with the only goal at bottom club Strasbourg.
Compatriot Rafik Saifi followed his first goal of the season last week with two more to help Troyes come back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at Bastia.

Salou had taken a 50 per cent pay cut to join Hansa Rostock from Eintracht Frankfurt during the winter break, and started to justify that move with the only goal at Uefa Cup quarter-finalists Kaiserslautern.
The first of the season for Salou came after two minutes, and he linked up well with Nigerian forward Victor Agali as the former East German side chalked up a vital away win to move up to 12th.
Ghana midfielder Alex Nyarko's weekend was just as bad as that of his national team-mates who went down to defeat in Sudan.
Everton went on to concede two late goals and lose 2-0 while Nyarko, who is far from a favourite with the fans or manager Walter Smith, is unlikely to be kept on this summer.
Nigerian striker Ade Akinbiyi, who has received his own share of criticism from the Leicester fans after struggling to live up to his £5m price tag, scored his sixth of the season to tie up a 2-0 win over Sunderland.
In Division One, Cameroon international Patrick Suffo finally found the net for Sheffield United at home to Crystal Palace.

In the only league game in France, Algeria's Rafik Saifi netted his first of the season to help Troyes beat Rennes 3-1 and move up to sixth in a tightly-contested league.

Ivory Coast international striker Ibrahim Bakayoko chose a good time to score his first league goal of the season for Marseille.
His drought will be forgotten by the Marseille fans as Bakayoko came off the bench to grab the only goal of the game against arch-rivals Paris St Germain in what was amazingly a lower mid-table scrap.
Emerging Ivorian star Dagui Bakari crashed in his fourth of the season to give surprise package Lille a 1-0 win at Guingamp and keep them top.

Ghana's highly-rated Otto Addo wrapped up the scoring for Dortmund as they beat Hamburg 4-2 to go two points behind leaders Bayern Munich.
They still lost 4-3, though. Ghana's Ohene Kennedy had earlier scored for Ankaragucu and then compatriot Augustine Ahinful came off the bench to score a last minute goal on his debut.
Guinean sensation Souleymane Youla was given some time on the pitch by Anderlecht in Belgium and repaid them with his first goal of the season.
The teenager, who doesn't often get off the bench, netted the final goal in a 4-1 win at Harelbeke.
