Cristiano Ronaldo is not the only Portuguese footballer making waves abroad.

As many as ten foreign-based Portuguese were on target for their clubs last weekend with Diogo Jota leading the way as he scored twice in Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-2 drew at Brighton & Hove Albion.

Cristiano Ronaldo was also on the score-sheet as Juventus suffered a rare defeat, while Nélson Oliveira (AEK Athens, Greece) and Flávio Paixão (Lechia GdaDsk, Poland) continued their strong seasons with a hat-trick and brace respectively.

On the managerial front, there was a big win for André Villas-Boas’ Marseille over Paulo Sousa’s Bordeaux in France while José Mourinho and Tottenham Hotspur got back to winning ways as they thumped Burnley 5-0.

Finally, former Tondela striker Tomané scored for Red Star Belgrade in their 3-1 win over Spartak Subotica in Serbia, and there were also goals for João Amaral (Lech Poznan, Poland), Bruno Gama (Aris, Greece). Asumah (Kriens, Switzerland) and Yazalde (Hermannstadt, Romania).
