With World Cup qualifiers suddenly right around the corner, several U.S. Men’s National Team regulars look to round into form on the club level.
After a tough start to September, Christian Pulisic fired a goal midweek to lead Borussia Dortmund to a resounding win over Bobby Wood and Hamburg. This weekend, he faces another U.S. teammate as Dortmund takes on Fabian Johnson and Borussia Monchengladbach. In other German action, Weston McKennie’s Schalke takes on Hoffenheim while Wood takes on Bayer Leverkusen as Hamburg looks to bounce back.
In England, DeAndre Yedlin’s fitness remains a key topic heading into October qualifiers as it appears that the USMNT fullback is getting back into solid form. This weekend, Newcastle faces Brighton & Hove Albion as Yedlin looks to continue his push towards qualifiers.
Elsewhere, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Sheffield United face local rivals Sheffield Wednesday and Matt Miazga’s Vitesse faces a powerhouse in Ajax. Liga MX matches, meanwhile, are postponed due to the recent earthquake.
