Memphis Belle: Lopetegui's epitaph, Benfica's slip up, and Cocu's redundancy

Welcome to your latest episode of On The Continent! Come in and put your feet up.

This week, we head out to Spain and pore over the fallout around Julen Lopetegui's sacking, trying to ascertain who might follow in his footsteps (clue: they probably need to be mates with Sergio Ramos), wonder what happened to Benfica in their game at Belenenses, and find out why Phillip Cocu is the new Frank de Boer.

Over in Italy, we learn a lot about Lazio and their ambitions this season, and on the way home we stop in on France and the aftermath of Le Classique.
