Forget the old American tradition of watching football on Thanksgiving, because there is more than enough soccer for your viewing pleasure today.
The UEFA Europa League resumes on Thursday with a heavy round of matches, including Olympique Lyon-Real Betis, Bordeaux-Eintracht Frankfurt, Swansea City-Valencia and Legia Warsaw vs. Lazio.
From an American player standpoint, there are a few games worth keeping an eye on. Aron Johannsson will look to stay hot when AZ Alkmaar host Maccabi Haifa, Terrence Boyd and Rapid Vienna take on FC Thun, and Brad Friedel hopes to make a rare Tottenham appearance vs. Tromso.
If you will be watching today’s matches please feel free to share your thoughts, opinions and some play-by-play in the comments section below.
The full schedule is after the jump.
Enjoy the action.

Terrence Boyd scored in a 2-1 Rapid Vienna win.
Saw that. they have a chance to go through still
They are one point behind Dynamo Keiv and go there on the last match day for the second spot. Won’t be easy be it’s in there hands.
I sure wish Jozy would have joined Lazio or any other club than Sunderland
