In the English Premier League, Aussie Jordan Lyden came off the bench for Aston Villa but could do little to stop his team being smashed 6-0 by Liverpool on a dark day for Remi Garde's side.
Lyden was a 66th minute substitute for the home side in place of Leandro Bacuna.
But with the visitors 5-0 up there was little the 20-year-old midfielder from Perth could do to stop the rampant Reds from inflicting the heavy defeat.
Elsewhere in Europe, goalkeeper Brad Jones had a tough day at the office as NEC Nijmegen lost 3-0 to PSV in the Eredivisie.

Bulut played 88 minutes for the visitors before being replaced by Giannis Loukinas, with the Australian forward lining up on the right wing for Iraklis.
It was Bulut's 13th appearance in the Greek Super League for Iraklis, with the 23-year-old having made nine starts and scored one goal.
