Paqueta proving he’s worth the hype as settles at AC Milan
MILAN (AP) — Lucas Paqueta is settling in at AC Milan and beginning to prove he is worth the hype.
While the Brazil international did not score in a 2-0 win at Genoa on Monday, he was at the heart of most of the Rossoneri's good play and hit the woodwork.
Fabio Borini and Suso scored as Milan moved back into fourth spot in Serie A and the final Champions League qualifying berth.
WATFORD, England (AP) — Watford beat last-placed Sunderland 1-0 to ease its relegation fears in the English Premier League on Saturday.
Watford's first win in five matches solidified its mid-table position.
Sunderland, however, failed to score for a fifth straight match, and remained far from safety with games running out.
SUNDERLAND, England (AP) — Burnley remained winless away from home and Sunderland stayed at the bottom of the English Premier League after a 0-0 draw on Saturday.
Tom Heaton denied the Black Cats a late winner as David Moyes' men wasted a series of chances against Burnley at the Stadium of Light.
Heaton saved well from Fabio Borini in the 87th minute while Billy Jones and Sebastian Larsson also missed fine opportunities as the Clarets recorded only their third away point of the season.
