Ethan Horvath has been in fine form for Club Brugge and now returns to league play after a strong showing with the U.S. Men’s National Team.
Horvath played superb in the USMNT’s 1-0 friendly defeat to Italy on Tuesday, making five saves. After a good run of form in the Belgian Pro League and the UEFA Champions League, Horvath will aim to keep his No. 1 spot for Brugge who currently sit four points back of the top spot. A battle with Zulte Waregem should be slight work for Horvath and Co. who seek a return to winning ways.
Elsewhere, Christian Pulisic will seek a start for Borussia Dortmund in his first domestic match back. Weston McKennie missed out on the USMNT’s final friendly of 2018 but aims to start for Schalke. DeAndre Yedlin and Tim Ream headline Premier League duty this weekend with both of their respective teams needing results.
Andrija Novakovich and Fortuna Sittard face Heracles with the striker battling fitness. Tim Weah and PSG face a winnable test against Toulouse while Matt Miazga and Nantes battle Angers.
