There were crunch results at opposite ends of the ladder for two of our Caltex Socceroos on Saturday morning (AEST).
In Saudi Arabia, Australia defender Milos Degenek was again deployed as a defensive midfielder as Al Hilal returned to the top of the ladder.
Their 1-0 win over Al Ahli, courtesy of an Alberto Botia strike in the 43rd minute, saw them overtake Al Nassr, although they have played a game more than their rivals for the title.
