It’s a big weekend for some of our Caltex Socceroos in Europe with the Premier League back following the FA Cup last weekend, while the Bundesliga returns following a winter break.
Here's where you can see some of our Aussie stars playing over the next few days around the globe.
RYAN, MOOY IN EPL
Mat Ryan’s Brighton and Hove Albion have a he opportunity to pull further away from the EPL drop zone when they travel to second-from-bottom West Bromich Albion on Sunday morning (AEDT).
Brighton have lost just one of their last five games and can put some breathing space between themselves and the bottom three with a win at the Hawthorns.
Meanwhile, Aaron Mooy’s Huddersfield will also fancy their chances of getting back to winning ways when they host West Ham United.
The Terriers are sitting comfortably in 11th spot but are winless in their last four EPL games.
OPPORTUNITY BECKONS IN CHAMPIONSHIP
Bailey Wright’s Bristol City will look to bounce back from their heart-breaking League Cup loss to Man City midweek when they host Norwich City.
The Robins are currently fourth and another three points at Ashton Gate will enhance their promotion push.
Likewise for Mile Jedinak’s Aston Villa, who are currently fifth ahead of a tricky trip to Nottingham Forest, who dumped Arsenal out of the FA Cup last weekend.
Elsewhere, Jackson Irvine’s Hull City are at home for their relegation six-pointer against Reading, while Massimo Luongo’s QPR travel to strugglers Burton Albion.
And James Meredith is likely to start at left-back as Millwall takes on Preston North End.
THE EUROPEAN CONTINGENT
The Bundesliga is back and that means Mathew Leckie will be back in action with his Hertha Berlin side.
Hertha, sitting 10th at the midway point of the season, travel to Vfb Stuttgart on Sunday morning (AEDT).
And winger Awer Mabil and his Pacos de Ferreira side will have their work cut out when they host sixth-placed Maritimo in the Portuguese top flight.
