Posted: 2 May 2016 Time: 09:32
A round-up of the South Africans abroad over the past weekend.
Claasen scored his second goal of the season for German Bundesliga II side 1860 Munich as they gave a massive boost to their survival hopes with a 2-0 victory over St Pauli. The win moves 1860 out of the relegation zone for almost the first time this season with two matches remaining in the campaign.
Dikgacoi made his second league start since November for English Championship side Cardiff City, but their hopes of reaching the promotion play-offs were ended with a 3-0 defeat against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.
Jali laid on both goals for his Belgian side KV Oostende as they beat Zulte-Waregem 2-1 to stay in contention for the UEFA Europa League play-off position. The second Oostende goal was scored by former Kaizer Chiefs striker Knowledge Musona, who came off the bench in the second half.
Keet was left on the bench as Kortrijk beat Standard Liege 1-0 to secure top spot in their Play-Off II pool and advance to the next stage of qualifying for the Europa League.
Mahlangu played for Sint Truiden in their 1-1 draw away at Mechelen, the penultimate game of the season for the club.
Masango played for Danish side Randers in their 2-2 away draw with FC Nordsjælland.
Mokotjo played for Dutch side FC Twente as they were humbled 4-0 by Ajax Amsterdam.
Patosi and his Lokeren side blew a 2-0 lead to draw at Sporting Charleroi, conceding the equaliser in the fourth minute of injury-time. It means Lokeren must better the result of Charleroi in their final Europa League qualifying pool match next weekend as they host Mechelen and their rivals travel to Sint Truiden.
Phete started for Vitoria Guimaraes as they lost to top side Benfica 1-0 in the Portuguese league. The South African youngster played the full game.
Phiri was brought off the bench midway through the second half as Brondby lost 3-0 at Aalborg in Denmark.
Radebe missed out on promotion to the Belgian top-flight when his Eupen side could only manage a draw at Antwerp and White Star Brussels finished top to secure their first ever top-flight season in 2016/17.
Scott missed out on silverware with Slovan Bratislava as his side were beaten 3-1 by Trencin in the Slovak Cup final. Scott started for his new side, but despite his team taking the lead early in the second half, they were not able to maintain the advantage and so a rare opportunity for a South African to lift a trophy in Europe this season was gone.
Serero helped Ajax Amsterdam take a step closer to the Dutch league title as he played the first 70 minutes of their 4-0 win over FC Twente. Ajax must just match the result of PSV Eindhoven next Sunday to be crowned champions.
Singh started for Swedish second-tier side GAIS as they played to a 0-0 home draw with Örgryte.
Veldwijk netted his 14th goal of the Dutch league season as PEC Zwolle drew 2-2 away at Excelsior Rotterdam to stay in contention for the UEFA Europa League playoffs.
