Algerians/Slovenians Abroad: Weekend Rewind

Zlatko Dedic has plied his trade In Italy's second division for much of his career, but the Slovenian forward has enjoyed a fairly smooth transition into the Bundesliga, with his goal against Werder Bremen serving as the latest piece of evidence.

Dedic scored his fourth goal of the season with a clever chip that gave VfL Bochum a temporary 2-1 lead over Werder Bremen. Bochum would surrender two goals in the ensuing 18 minutes, but the relegation-battling club might be able to take confidence in knowing that it was leading over fifth-place Werder Bremen courtesy of Dedic's goal. 

Algerian midfielder Mehdi Lacen didn't find the back of the net, but he did help Spanish club Racing Santander inch further away from the drop zone by starting and going the distance in the club's 3-1 road victory over Osasuna. Lacen and Racing Santander now sit seven points clear of relegation.

Nadir Belhadj and Portsmouth look all but set to be relegated in the Premiership, but the Algerian defender took part in Pompey's sixth league win of the season. Last-place Portsmouth trounced Hull City 3-2 in a thrilling battle of relegation-threatened clubs, and Belhadj started and played 90 minutes.
