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
