And then there were four.
Not one, not two, but THREE of Europe’s longstanding unbeaten league records officially came to an end this weekend in a seismic few days of action across the continent.
The biggest surprise, no doubt, came in France on Saturday when big-spending PSG were beaten 2-1 by lowly Strasbourg in Ligue 1.
The likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani were embarrassed in north eastern France, meaning their lead at the top is now only eight points.
And they weren’t the only European giants to sacrifice their unbeaten starts to 2017/18.
The night before, Juventus toppled Napoli in one of the biggest games of the Serie A season to hand Maurizio Sarri’s side their first taste of defeat.
Gonzalo Higuain (who else?) provided the match-winning moment on his return to the Stadio San Paolo to blow the title race wide open.
And the curse struck Spain too on Sunday.
Valencia have shown shades of better times, emerging as Barcelona’s closest rivals for the La Liga crown.
But Los Che were stunned by ten-man Getafe, picking up their first loss of the season and falling five points behind the Catalans.
Those results mean just four teams in Europe’s top five leagues are still unbeaten this season.
And they are?
Manchester City, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan.
Who will be the next to fall?
