Heerenveen were involved in a 2-2 draw with SC Heracles Almelo on Saturday. Michael Bradley played the full 90 minutes, but didn't score for the first time in seven games and his club could only draw. The result leaves Heerenveen in fifth place, though a logjam still exists at the top of the Eredivisie: two points separate second place from fifth.
In Germany, Steve Cherundolo and Hannover slipped to defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich, being on the wrong end of a Luca Toni hat trick.
Over in Portugal, Freddy Adu made a substitute appearance in the 72nd minute of Benfica's 2-0 win Naval 1˚ Maio.
