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.

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.
