American Exports: Barrett's Valerenga win 2nd on the trot

AMSTERDAM – A handful of Americans took to Friday night lights across the Atlantic, with Chad Barrett's Vålerenga scoring a 3-0 win over Sandnes Ulf.

By winning back-to-back home games for the first time since April, The Pride of Oslo tentatively climbed to within six points of a Europa League spot. 

In nearby Denmark, Conor O'Brien and SønderjyskE had a night to forget, losing 4-0 at Aalborg. It was the third straight Superliga defeat for the visitors, who stayed leashed to sixth place.

In the Dutch second flight, Charles Kazlauskas switched to right back in Helmond Sport's 2-0 derby win over Den Bosch. Thanks to a pair of early goals and their first clean sheet of the season, the home side made it four wins from four to remain the lone perfect team in the league.

Finally, in Sweden's honor division, Brian Span watched on as Djurgården dropped a 3-2 decision at Örebro.
