There was late drama as Mathew Leckie made his return in the Bundesliga against Bayern Munich, while a couple of Caltex Socceroo midfielders went head-to-head in the English Championship overnight.
After missing a week through injury, Leckie returned to the FC Ingolstadt starting line-up for the visit of league-leaders Bayern.
And it appeared like the relegation battlers would hold on for a point as they defended superbly for 89 minutes, when the Australian winger was substituted.
There was still time for Bayern to score twice in the dying minutes, first through Chilean Arturo Vidal – who the Caltex Socceroos will face at June’s Confederation’s Cup – and then via Arjen Robben.
The defeat means Ingolstadt remains in the Bundesliga drop zone for at least another week.
It was an all-Aussie affair at Loftus Road as Massimo Luongo’s QPR took on Aaron Mooy’s high-flying Huddersfield.
