Aussies were in action across the globe this weekend. Here's how they fared.UK
Ryan McGowan helped nine-man Dundee United hold Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic to a 1-1 draw at home, both teams having had a man sent off in the 11th minute, while the hosts lost another player to a straight red three minutes into the second half.
Injured Tom Rogic wasn’t in the Celtic squad but in positive news should be back to full training with the first-team squad this week.
Tommy Oar was an unused substitute for Utrecht, who hammered AZ 6-2 at home in the Eredivisie.
James Holland played the full game and picked up a yellow card as his 10-man Austria Wien side beat local rivals Rapid Wien 2-1 in the Austrian Bundesliga.
Josh Brillante didn't get off the bench for Empoli in their 1-1 Serie A draw at home to Genoa.
Dario Vidosic was also an unused sub as his FC Sion lost 3-2 to Young Boys in the Swiss Super League.
Tim Cahill played until the 75th minute of his Shanghai Shenhua debut, a thumping 6-2 win over neighbours Shanghai Shenxin in the Chinese Super League.
What a great start to the season 6-2 at home and fans were bouncing, they didn't stop singing the whole game. This was an amazing experience for me. 75mins unlucky not to score, happy with the assist but more importantly the chemistry was good and we played well. Feeling at home @shanghaishenhua @greenlandshenhua well done to @phzinho12 for his hat trick
