In the Premier League, the relegation scrap itself is worth a television show of its own. It is filled with drama and suspense each and every week with teams constantly moving up and down with each passing result.
Currently this campaign, 11 points separates 10th from last place. Newcastle United is in 13th and unbeaten in their last three Premier League matches. American defender DeAndre Yedlin leads the backline with 23 appearances this season, and will look to help his team to a win over AFC Bournemouth this Saturday. Danny Williams and Huddersfield Town are a point clear of the bottom three and will look to inch up as they face West Bromwich Albion this weekend. Geoff Cameron and Stoke City travel to Leicester City in Saturday’s early contest.
Elsewhere in Europe, Christian Pulisic and Borussia Dortmund concludes the Bundesliga round on Monday vs. Augsburg. Bobby Wood and Hamburg face off with Aron Johannsson and Werder Bremen, while Timmy Chandler and Frankfurt travel to Stuttgart. Kenny Saief and Anderlecht will hope to end a two-match losing run as they host Mouscron on Sunday. Omar Gonzalez and Pachuca welcome William Yarborough and Landon Donovan in a Liga MX clash on Saturday.

Keaton Parks scores again for Benefica II in the 2nd Division. EPB on the bench in Belgium. Saief with an assist, busy day for Americans today.
Yup. Good weekend. Six Americans with goals.
Looks like Mukwelle has peaked. He’s 21 and still playing for Villarreal C team.
Possibly, its kind of hard to tell since there is really no news about whats going on with Villarreal’s B and C clubs other than they are both basically youth squads with B being the U23s. I think he had some injuries that have slowed him, but last Spring Tab Ramos said that he was available and in form but not selected for U20 WC. Of course so was JGone so Tab’s evaluating of talent isn’t perfect.
Shaq Moore with the game-winner in extra time for Levante B. Mukwelle Akale for Villarreal III two goals in a win. Both playing in the Spanish 4th Division.
Both Gall and Diskerud score Swedish Cup play.
Haji Wright came on in the 61st min in their lost today
Julian Green with assist
Novakovich with another goal probably more to follow they are up 5-0 not even half time yet
