The German Bundesliga returns to action over the weekend as several Americans look to make an early impression to start the league campaign.
German action begins Friday with a clash between Julian Green’s Bayern Munich and Aron Johannsson’s Werder Bremen. Saturday’s schedule could feature Christian Pulisic, Bobby Wood, Alfredo Morales and Fabian Johnson, while Saturday will see the season debuts of John Brooks’ Hertha Berlin and Terrence Boyd’s RB Leipzig.
In England, DeAndre Yedlin could see his first match with new club Newcastle, while Lynden Gooch is a good bet to return to the Sunderland lineup against Southampton. Fresh off of his Bournemouth debut midweek, Emerson Hyndman could also be in line for a run out against Crystal Palace.
Liga MX action is headlined by a clash between Pachuca and Monterrey that pits Omar Gonzalez against the other Mexican club that nearly signed him, while Jorge Villafana and Santos Laguna face William Yarbrough, Miguel Ibarra and Club Leon.
