The German 2.Bundesliga and Scottish Premier League resume this weekend bringing with it more Aussies in action such as young Socceroos prospects Mathew Leckie, Nikita Rukavytsya and Ryan McGowan.
On Friday evening, Nikita Rukavytsya's Hertha BSC are back in action as 2.Bundesliga resumes. Hertha take on Paderborn (4.30am) although the Aussie may miss as he battles a calf strain.
On Saturday, Joshua Kennedy will hope to return from a leg/knee injury and help Nagoya Grampus climb the table when they take on Vissel Kobe (8pm) in Japan's J.League.
Elsewhere, Matt McKay returned from a hamstring problem last weekend and will hope to build on that as Busan I'Park try to seal their spot in the K-League top eight ahead of the mid-season split when they go to Daegu (8pm).
Later on Saturday evening the Scottish Premier League returns with Ryan McGowan's Hearts playing host to St Johnstone (midnight).
On Sunday, Mathew Leckie could provide a big highlight on the opening weekend of the German 2.Liga season, when his new club FSV Frankfurt go to Sandhausen (9.30pm).
There's also a raft of pre-season friendlies over the weekend including Brett Holman's Aston Villa taking on Nottingham Forest and Mitchell Langerak and Mustafa Amini's Dortmund meeting Hamburg.
