In the German Bundesliga, Caltex Socceroos winger Matt Leckie played a full game but suffered a loss with his club Hertha Berlin overnight.
Away to high-flying Schalke at the Veltins Arena, Leckie's side went down to a single goal by Marko Pjaca after 37 minutes.
Hertha boss Pal Dardai believes his side deserved more but rued a lack of concentration for the goal.
"Congratulations to Schalke on the win, but we're a bit sad because we deserved an equaliser. In terms of tactics and possession, we did well in the first half and dominated in the second," reported Bundesliga.com.
"I can't complain about their goal though. It was a lapse in concentration from us, but the lads reacted well to the setback. Nevertheless, you can't win if you don't score."
Schalke move into second on the ladder behind leaders Bayern Munich.
Hertha Berlin are 11th with 31 points, just four points behind seventh-placed Hoffenheim.
