Sparta had Aussies Craig Goodwin and Ken Dougall starting at the de Kuip Stadium with Goodwin withdrawn after 79 minutes and Dougall seeing out the full game.
Elsewhere in Holland Daniel De Silva sat on the bench for Roda in their 0-0 draw with PSV, as did Jason Davidson for Groningen in their 2-0 loss at Ajax.
In the German Bundesliga, Matt Leckie played a full game in Ingolstadt’s 2-1 loss to Werder Bremen, while Robbie Kruse missed out on action with Bayer Leverkusen.
And in the EPL, Bournemouth came back from 2-0 down at the break to win 4-3 at home to Liverpool. Brad Smith and keeper Adam Federici (who both played the previous week) watched on from the bench.
