DaMarcus Beasley signed with Puebla earlier this summer in the hopes of reviving his club career, and that challenge begins for him this weekend.
Puebla opens its Apertura campaign on Saturday against Atlas, and Beasley will hope to make his first start for the club. Beasley, who only made four league appearances for Hannover 96 last season, is likely to at least make the bench after seeing a substantial amount of minutes in preseason.
The Scottish Premier League also kicks off this weekend, and so does Maurice Edu and Rangers' quest for a fourth consecutive league title. Edu and Rangers face off versus Heart of Midlothian in a home match on Saturday.
Wondering what other intriguing matches are on tap this weekend? Look no further than Estudiantes Tecos' season opener against Toluca, a game which could mark Herculez Gomez's Estudiantes debut.

Edson Buddle and FC Ingolstadt 04 play FC Erzgebirge Aue.
Herculez Gomez and Estudiantes Tecos play Toluca.
Josh Gatt, Sean Cunningham and Molde FK play Start.
Maurice Edu and Rangers play Heart of Midlothian.
