Youngster Richmond Boakye-Yiadom was not selected to face the Bianconerris.

Palermo compounded Cesena's troubles by subjecting them to a 2-1 home defeat.

Ex-Ghana captain Stephen Appiah played 63 minutes before being replaced by Matias Schelotto.

Appiah was cautioned on the 43rd minute for an indecent challenge.

Charles Takyi was dropped to the St. Pauli bench as they shared the spoils with Wolfsburg on Sunday afternoon.

The midfielder watched the action from the bench as Pauli picked their first point from five games in a one-all draw.

Godfred Aduobe was conspicuously missing from the Karlsruhe first team that suffered a 3-1 at FC Augsburg in the Bundesliga II.

Netherlands:

Striker Matthew Amoah played the full minutes as NAC Breda fell 3-0 at ADO Den Haag.

Nana Kwasi Asare is yet to make a return from his long term injury.

He watched from the stands as his FC Utrecht posted a sweet 4-0 win over NEC Nijmegen.

Youngster Erixon Danso was also out of the first team squad.

Fred Benson scored a 30th minute penalty in RKC Waalwijk's demolishing exercise over MVV Maastricht.

Manchester City recorded an emphatic 4-1 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage to stay in fourth place.

Right-back John Pantsil warmed the bench for Mark Hughes' boys.

The center-back halved the deficit for Granada moments after the break but they could not head for the leveler as Numancia went ahead to score two more.
