With just under a month to go until the final round of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying begins, the USMNT contingent all return to their clubs to try to find their best form and assure themselves the best chance of making November’s roster.

This weekend offers up several interesting match-ups, specifically in the Bundesliga. Borussia Dortmund vs. Hertha Berlin on Friday afternoon has to be the pick of the bunch with there being a chance that John Brooks faces off against Christian Pulisic. That one can be seen on FS1 at 2:45.

Another American vs. American affair in Germany is Borussia Monchengladbach vs. Hamburg as Fabian Johnson and Bobby Wood meet.
