When are your Caltex Socceroos in action this weekend?

Premier League survival and looming league titles in Scotland and Belgium are on the agenda for some of your Caltex Socceroos this weekend.

Read on for a full rundown of what's ahead for our overseas Aussie stars (all times are AEST).

LAST WEEK: Mabil’s FC Midtjylland keep Danish Superliga title alive
LAST WEEK: Milligan and Hibs go 10 unbeaten, Langerak's worldie save takes Nagoya second
LAST WEEK: Keepers Ryan and Vukovic celebrate huge results

Mat Ryan has enjoyed an excellent season with Brighton in the EPL

Ryan’s Brighton can seal safety against Gunners

Mathew Ryan’s Brighton and Hove Albion could secure their Premier League status when they travel Arsenal on Monday morning (kick-off 1.30am).

A win against the misfiring Gunners would confirm top-flight status for Chris Hughton’s men, who are currently four points above 18th-placed Cardiff City with two matches remaining.

However, if Cardiff does not beat Crystal Palace in the early hours of Sunday morning, a point for Ryan’s side at the Emirates would also secure Premier League survival.


If Cardiff do beat Palace and the Seagulls lose at the Emirates, there will just be a single point between the two clubs ahead of the final day of the season – on which Brighton host title-chasing Manchester City, while Cardiff travels to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United.

First of all, United are in action against Aaron Mooy’s Huddersfield Town at 11.00pm on Sunday. The Terriers were relegated in March but could put a serious dent in the Red Devils’ top four and UEFA Champions League aspirations.

After missing his side's 5-0 drubbing away to Liverpool last Saturday with a hip complaint, Mooy could return to the fold. He famously scored in Town's 2-1 win over United in October 2017.

Happier times: Mooy was the catalyst of Huddersfield's memorable 2-1 shock of United in 2017

In the Championship, both Jackson Irvine of Hull City and Massimo Luongo of Queens Park Rangers finish up their league campaigns on Sunday evening (all games kick off at 9.30pm AEST).

Irvine’s Hull host playoff hopefuls Bristol City, while Luongo’s QPR outfit travel to Sheffield Wednesday.

Rogic and Celtic await historic number eight

Tom Rogic and Celtic can wrap up the Scottish Premiership title with a point against Aberdeen in Saturday night’s 9:30 kick off.

The Glaswegian giants are set to be crowned champions for the eighth consecutive season, a fact that could be confirmed before second-placed Rangers host Mark Milligan’s Hibernian at 12.30am on Monday morning.

Langerak aiming high in J-League

Nagoya Grampus are in hot pursuit of J-League front runners FC Tokyo, and Mitch Langerak’s second-placed side will look to keep pace with a win at mid-table Shonan Bellmare on Saturday (kick-off 5.00pm).

It is so tight at the J-League summit, that Langerak may be overtaken by Australian teammate Andrew Nabbout’s Urawa Red Diamonds (currently in fifth), who are in action against Jubilo Iwata on Friday at 3.00pm.

WATCH: Langerak makes an incredible save for Nagoya in a 1-0 win over Sanfrecce last Sunday

Vukovic can smell silverware in Belgium

Danny Vukovic’s Genk can take another huge step toward the Belgian Pro League title against Antwerp on Saturday morning, kick off 4.30am.

Genk are six points ahead of Club Brugge with four matches of the championship playoff round remaining.

The goalkeeper is on the verge of the league title, but the Danish Superliga appears to be drifting away from Awer Mabil’s FC Midtjylland.

Midtjylland trail Copenhagen by nine points with four rounds remaining, but can make their meeting with the league leaders on Sunday, May 12 more interesting should they get past Odense Boldklub on Monday (kick-off 2.00am).

Meanwhile, Aussie teammate Mustafa Amini has the first leg of his UEFA Europa League playoff with AaB Aalborg, with that one getting underway on Sunday at 8.00pm.

In Germany, Mathew Leckie’s Hertha Berlin welcome VfB Stuttgart at 11.30pm on Saturday, and Robbie Kruse’s VfL Bochum entertain FC Magdeburg at 9.00pm the same evening.

It's the final match of the season for Apostolos Giannou in Cyprus, with his AEK Larnaca assured of a third-place finish ahead of their clash with Nea Salamis on Sunday at 2.00am. And in Austria, James Jeggo and his Austria Wien side are at home against Salzburg at 1.00am on Monday.

Down but not out: Mabil and FC Midtjylland are still alive in the Danish Superliga title race
