Caltex Socceroos Awer Mabil and Mustafa Amini locked horns in the Danish Superliga overnight as FC Midtjylland beat AGF 2-1.
The two Denmark-based Australians have been mainstays for both their sides this season, but it was Mabil and Midtjylland who came out on top in a fiery occasion which saw three red cards.
And Mabil played a starring role in helping Midtjylland retain their title challenge, providing a neat crossed assist for Paul Onuachu's match-winning strike.
That was the attacker's 11th assist in all competitions for the Danish heavyweights.
Mabil's side are now level on points with first-placed Copenhagen with three rounds remaining, however the league leaders crucially have a game in hand on the Wolves.
Copenhagen entertain Vendsyssel FF at home tomorrow 5.00am (AEDT).
