Caltex Socceroos attacker Mat Leckie got through a full 90 minutes as Hertha Berlin secured a shock 0-0 draw away to runaway Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich overnight.
Bayern came into the clash on the back of a 10-game winning streak in the league but failed to penetrate a stoic Berlin defence as the visitors kept their third-straight clean sheet away from home.
The result leaves Leckie’s side in 11th spot on the table, while Bayern remain 20 points clear at the top.
Hertha are away to Schalke next weekend.
