Jordy Clasie opened the scoring with a wonder goal as Feyenoord ran out 3-0 winners against PEC Zwolle in the Dutch Eredivisie.

The midfielder struck with a dipping half-volley from 25 yards that sailed into the top corner to register his first goal since returning to the club in the summer.

Nicolai Jorgensen and Steven Berghuis were also on target in Rotterdam, leaving Feyenoord third in the Eredivisie behind PSV and Ajax.

Closer to home, Harrison Reed was sharp out of the blocks as he helped Blackburn to back-to-back wins with victory over promotion hopefuls Leeds at Ewood Park.

Reed took just two minutes to make an impact, as his early corner was nodded in by Danny Graham.

Mateusz Klich equalised later in the first half, but Darragh Lenihan headed the winner to deny Leeds the chance to go top, leaving Rovers level on points with the Championship play-off spots.

Sitting top of the table are Sam McQueen’s Middlesbrough, but the on-loan Saint was an unused substitute as Boro won 2-1 at Sheffield Wednesday on Friday night. 

Josh Sims also had to be content with a place on the bench, as Reading leapfrogged Millwall with a 3-1 victory at the Madejski Stadium.

In League One, Jake Hesketh was on the winning side for the second week running as Burton climbed up towards mid-table with three points away at bottom side Plymouth.

The hosts twice took the lead at Home Park, but Kyle McFadzean’s 84th minute header secured a 3-2 victory for the Brewers.

Finally, in Spain, Guido Carrillo was forced off before half time as Leganés earned an impressive point at Valencia, but Sofiane Boufal was on the losing side against surprise La Liga frontrunners Alavés, who were 1-0 winners at Celta Vigo.
