Mathew Leckie has been part of an impressive Bundesliga comeback overnight while other Caltex Socceroos have seen game time ahead of Thursday night's World Cup play off qualifier first leg against Syria in Malaysia.
Leckie, the in-form Caltex Socceroos attacker, has helped his Hertha Berlin side overturn a 2-0 deficit against German giants Bayern Munich to eventually draw 2-2.
Goals from veteran defender Mats Hummels and Polish super-striker Robert Lewandowski had Bayern in an apparently comfortable position early in the second half.
But two goals in five minutes from Ondrej Duda and Salomon Kalou earned Hertha Berlin a point.
Leckie is a key part of Ange Postecoglou's side which will face Syria in the Asian World Cup playoff over two legs in the next eight days.
The two nations meet in Malaysia on Thursday night before the return leg in Sydney on Tuesday evening.
Meanwhile over in Holland, Caltex Socceroos Craig Goodwin has warmed up for his return to the international fold with a full game in his club's latest Dutch outing.
Goodwin's Sparta Rotterdam have gone down 2-1 at home to Roda in the Eredivisie.
And in Switzerland, Tomi Juric has been unable to help his Swiss side Luzern avoid a 2-0 defeat away at Thun.
And in Asia, Matt Jurman has warmed up for what could be a Caltex Socceroos debut with a 1-1 draw in his latest club outing for Suwon Bluewings in Korea Republic.
The former Sydney FC defender played a full part in the game and picked up a second half booking.
