0:00

Multiple Australians hit the back of the net overnight around the world with Nikita Rukavytsya, James Holland, Joel Chianese and Sam Kerr all finding the back of the net.

Rukavytsya has continued his incredible form in Israel. The 33-year-old scored twice in a 3-0 win for Maccabi Haifa over Hapoel Kfar Saba. 

Rukavytsya has 20 goals and 5 assists in 21 matches this season. Last season, he had 23 goals in 42 matches for Maccabi. 

Maccabi is eight points clear at the top, with Rukavytsya seven goals clear in Israel's golden boot race.

James Holland is also experiencing a purple patch of form, with his third goal in as many games for LASK. The defensive midfielder managed to score a consolation goal in LASK's 2-1 loss to Rapid Vienna. 

The 31-year-old is not known for his goals but has shown a willingness in recent weeks to arrive late into the box and shoot from the edge of the area. 

LASK currently sit in fourth position in the Austrian Bundesliga. 

Former Perth Glory and Sydney FC attacking midfielder Joel Chianese came off the bench to score and seal a 2-0 victory for Hyderabad against Chennaiyin in the Indian Super League. 

The 30-year-old has three goals in eight matches. 

Sam Kerr continued her fantastic goalscoring run for dominant Women's Super League side Chelsea as she scored her 10th goal in all competitions this season in a 4-0 win over Alanna Kennedy's Tottenham. 

The 27-year-old striker now has seven goals in her last seven matches in all competitions. 

In other Women's Super League matches, Emily van Egmond and Mackenzie Arnold were on the wrong end of a 4-0 defeat as Manchester City beat West Ham. 

Panos Armenakis came off the bench in the 85th minute for Belgian first division side Zulte Waregem who defeated KV Oostende 2-1. 

Aemenakis has been seeing more game time this season and has scored twice in his last four appearances which included two starts. 

Defender Rhys Williams produced an assist in Al-Qadsiah's 2-2 draw with Al Wehda. Al Wehda brought Dimi Petratos off the bench in the 79th minute with the score at 2-2. 

Over the weekend, there were goals for Aussies Martin Boyle, Amy Harrison, Cameron Peupion and Deni Juric while Jackson Irvine produced two assists while goalkeeper Brad Jones was the star of the Saudi Super Cup final as Al-Nassr beat Al Hilal 3-0.
