Deniz Undav has been in scintillating form for Stuttgart.

Ipswich Town returned to the top of the Championship with a 1-1 draw against Middlesbrough, with Jeremy Sarmiento playing the first hour for the Tractor Boys.

That marked the Ecuadorian’s fifth Championship start of his Ipswich career.

James Beadle’s Sheffield Wednesday slipped back into the relegation zone with a 1-1 draw against relegation rivals Stoke City, while Carl Rushworth's Swansea City made it back-to-back wins and clean sheets as they beat bottom of the league Rotherham.

Marc Leonard’s Northampton Town suffered an unexpected 2-0 defeat to Fleetwood Town, who avoided relegation by taking all three points. Imari Samuels wasn’t included in the Cod Army’s squad.

Port Vale’s League One status sits on a knife’s edge following their 4-2 defeat to Exeter City. Jensen Weir came on for the final 30 minutes, with the Valiants now sitting three points from safety with three games to play.

While Bayer Leverkusen secured their first ever Bundesliga title, Stuttgart kept pace with second place Bayern Munich with a comprehensive 3-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt. Deniz Undav took his league goals involvements up to 25 for the campaign (16 goals, nine assists) with a goal and an assist, while Mo Dahoud came on for the final 15 minutes.

Abdallah Sima played his first full 90 minutes for Rangers since returning from injury, but couldn’t stop Philippe Clement’s team from slipping to a surprise 3-2 defeat to Ross County, scuppering their hopes of snatching the Scottish Premiership title off Celtic.

Vitesse Arnhem suffered their 21st defeat of the campaign as they were beaten 6-0 by league leaders PSV, leaving them two points adrift at the bottom of the Eredivisie. Kacper Kozlowski was replaced after 72 minutes, while Adrian Mazilu was an unused substitute.
