It was an unhappy end to the Bundesliga season for Mathew Leckie after his Hertha Berlin side suffered a heavy loss to RB Leipzig.
In the final match of the regular season, Hertha were thumped 6-2 in front of their home fans at Olympiastadion Berlin.
In a positive for Bert van Marwijk and the Caltex Socceroos, Leckie started for the hosts and played the full 90 minutes.
Leipzig netted inside the opening two minutes through Dayotchanculle Upamecano before equalised almost immediately courtesy of Vedad Ibisevic.
But it was all one way traffic after that with a brace to Jean Augustin and goals to Timo Werner, Ademola Lookman and Bruma handing Leipzig a big win.
The loss sees Hertha finish 10th on the final Bundesliga standings, with Leipzig ending in sixth spot.
Leckie made a total of 26 appearances in his maiden campaign with Berlin and collected five goals.
