Japanese forward Kyogo Furuhashi scored for Celtic as they advanced to the semifinals of the Scottish Cup on Saturday, while winger Koki Saito netted in a second straight game for Sparta Rotterdam.
Visiting Celtic cruised past Hearts 3-0 in the Scottish Cup quarterfinals, with Furuhashi flicking in a superb back-heel off Alistair Johnston's low cross to make it 2-0 in the 45th minute at Tynecastle Park.
Aaron Mooy swept home just two minutes in before Furuhashi scored his 26th goal this term in all competitions. Cameron Carter-Vickers headed in from a free kick 10 minutes from time for their third.
In the Dutch Eredivisie, Saito scored his third goal of the season as Sparta won 3-1 at home against Vitesse.
The 21-year-old acrobatically volleyed home to give his side a 2-1 lead in first-half stoppage time, reacting well after a cross from the right was partially cleared by the opposing goalkeeper.
Kaoru Mitoma assisted on Brighton's opener and played a big part in their second goal in a 2-2 draw away to Leeds in the English Premier League.
Mitoma rose high to head back a cross from the right wing, enabling Alexis Mac Allister to nod home the 33rd-minute opener at Elland Road before Leeds forward Patrick Bamford smashed in the equalizer.
Mitoma showed great acceleration in the 61st minute to squeeze in a cross from the left that led to Brighton's second, an own goal by Leeds winger Jack Harrison, who eventually made amends with his 78th-minute effort that left the game deadlocked.
In the German Bundesliga, midfielder Genki Haraguchi set up the equalizer for Stuttgart, who secured a 1-1 draw away to Eintracht Frankfurt.
Sebastian Rode curled in off the bar to give Frankfurt a 55th-minute lead but Haraguchi's dribble and pass allowed Silas Katompa Mvumpa to roll home from inside the box 20 minutes later in a match that featured a total of five Japanese players.
