Aussies Abroad Preview: In-form Socceroos look to kick on

It has been an outstanding few weeks for the likes of Tom Rogic, Harry Souttar, Awer Mabil and Martin Boyle, who have kicked off their respective seasons in style. 

The in-form Socceroos quartet, and many more Aussies Abroad throughout Europe, Asia and North America, will be in action again over the coming days.  

We've got you covered with an overview covering all of their fixtures, including kick-off times provided in AEST. 


Commencing our preview in England, Harry Souttar, Riley McGree and Kenny Dougall's sides all will take to the pitch at 12:00am (AEST) on Sunday morning.

Souttar's Stoke City, who are unbeaten after three rounds, host Nottingham Forest, while McGree's Birmingham City, who have had a mixed bag of results so far, travel to take on Luton. 

Dougall's Blackpool FC will still be in search for their first win since returning to the Championship when they face Bournemouth away at the Vitality Stadium.

Socceroos fans are spoilt for choice on Saturday night, as at the same time as the previous three fixtures, Tom Rogic will be back in action over in Scotland.

The attacking maestro will be hoping to make his fifth-straight start as Celtic shoot for six wins on the bounce, welcoming St Mirren to Celtic Park.  

Fresh of signing a new contract with Hibernian, Martin Boyle will be looking to find himself on the scoresheet yet again when Hibs meet Dundee at 9pm on Sunday (AEST).

Moving over to Denmark, Awer Mabil's  FC Mitdjylland take on Silkeborg at home from 3am on Saturday morning (AEST). 

Mabil's side sit second after five games, one point off the summit, and face an opposition who are undefeated so far this season - having drawn four of their five encounters.

Lawrence Thomas's SønderjysKe also have a home game to look forward to, against FC København at home, at 12am on Monday morning.

Down in Germany, Ajdin Hrustic is set for his first home game of the Bundesliga season on Saturday (11:30pm AEST). 

Hrustic's Eintrach Frankfurt, who fell to a 5-2 defeat in a goal-packed encounter with Borussia Dortmund on the opening day, will be looking for their first points of the season when they host Augsburg. 

In the second division, Jackson Irvine is edging closer to his competitive debut with FC St. Pauli.

If Irvine does appear this weekend, he could well come face-to-face with a fellow Aussie. 

St. Pauli lock horns with SC Paderborn at 9:30pm on Saturday (AEST) - a club that Australia U-23 select player Jack Iredale recently joined.  

Moving to Italy, Fran Karacic's Brescia Calcio open their Serie B season on Monday (2am AEST) away to Ternana. 

Under new coach Filippo Inzaghi, Karacic's side are hoping to amount a serious promotion push after narrowly missing out last campaign. 

In Belgium, Trent Sainsbury's Kortrijk will be eager to rebound from back-to-back defeats when they take on St. Truiden (Sunday 4:45am AEST).

It may be early days still, but in Serbia, Milos Degenek's Red Star Belgrade sit in third place with four matches played, and are set to take on the ladder leaders this weekend.  Early days in serbia, Red Star Belgrade are still 3rd 4 games played 

On Sunday (3am AEST) the defending Champions will look to close the gap on TSC Backa Topola, who they trail by three points with a game in hand. 

Aussies Abroad: Midweek matches return as Rogic inspires Celtic to European victory

Danny Vukovic's Dutch side NEC Nijmegen will be itching to erase remnants of a heavy defeat to Ajax last week when they host PEC Zwolle in their first home game of the season (Saturday 4am AEST). 

Our last European destination is France, where Denis Genreau enjoyed his Ligue 2 debut for top-of-the-table Toulouse FC last weekend. 

The Socceroos and Olyroos midfielder will be hoping to build on his maiden appearance on Saturday (11pm  AEST), when his side travel to take on Dijon- a club yet to record a win this season. 

Heading East to Japan, Adam Taggart and Mitch Duke will both be looking to find the back of the net in consecutive matches. 

The Socceroos striking pair both take to the pitch at 8pm (AEST) on Saturday, with Taggart's Cerezo Osaka hosting Yokohama FC, and Duke's Fagiano Okayama taking on Omiya Ardija. 

Finally in America, it has been a huge week on the road for Brad Smith and the Seattle Sounders. 

After an emphatic 6-2 derby victory over Portland Timbers and 1-0 win over Dallas FC, the Sounders take on Columbus Crew at 7:30am (AEST) on Sunday.
