There look to be matches involving USMNT players all across the top five leagues in Europe as well as in MLS this weekend.

There are a couple matches on Friday as well so let’s start there.

Luca de la Torre started and went 84 minutes last weekend in Celta Vigo’s 1-1 draw with Real Sociedad. This weekend, things will get tougher as they face league leading Real Madrid, who have been predictably dominant in their opening two matches.

Bournemouth are looking for their first win on the season and taking on a Spurs side that have top six aspirations coming off a 2-0 win over Manchester United.

Koln v Wolfsburg - 9:30a on ESPN+

Kevin Paredes was a time wasting sub for Wolfsburg last weekend in their 2-0 win over Heidenheim, coming on in the 89th minute. The good news is he looks recovered from a hamstring pull that had sidelined him in the preseason.

Bochum v Borussia Dortmund - 9:30a on ESPN+

Gio Reyna has only just returned to training and also seems likely to be out through the upcoming international break. His Dortmund teammates picked up a late goal last weekend to win 1-0 and will now face Bochum.

Heidenheim v Hoffenheim - 9:30a on ESPN+

John Brooks and Hoffenheim lost their opener 2-1 to Freiburg last weekend and will look to pickup their first points of the season Saturday against newly promoted Heidenheim. Brooks started and went the full 90 last weekend.

Brenden Aaronson started and played 76 minutes of Union Berlin’s 4-1 win over Mainz last weekend, but Jordan Pefok was an unused substitute in the match. The team will look to keep things rolling against a Darmstadt side that lost their opener 1-0.

Arsenal FC v Fulham FC - 10a on USA Network

Tim Ream received a rather harsh red card last weekend in Fulham’s 3-0 loss to Brentford and will miss the match this weekend as Antonee Robinson and the rest of the squad take on Arsenal. Arsenal have won their first two matches though both were decided by just a goal.

Brentford v Crystal Palace - 10a on Peacock

Chris Richards has not made it off the bench for Crystal Palace in their first two matches and could be in for a long season if things don’t change. The club has split their first two and face a Brentford side coming off a 3-0 win over Fulham.

Dest played 81 minutes for PSV while Ricardo Pepi and Malik Tillman were unused substitutes for their side. The team returns to league action this weekend where they have won their first two matches and are facing a Go Ahead Eagles side that lost their opener 5-1 to AZ Alkmar and then defeated FC Volendam 4-1 despite playing the second half of the match down a man.

Juventus v Bologna - 12:30 on Paramount+

Tim Weah started for Juventus and played the opening 45 minutes coming off at halftime for USMNT and club teammate Weston McKennie. Weah had picked up a knock in the first half and it seems like the substitution may have been precautionary as his side was up 3-0 at the half.
