MNT on TV: Final Club Matches Before October Friendlies

It’s one more weekend of club duty before the U.S. Men’s National Team reconvenes for October friendlies against Cuba and New Zealand. Here’s how to follow MNT players before they arrive in Miami and use the next two matches to fight for spots in the highly anticipated showdown with Mexico and Costa Rica to open the Hex in November.

The weekend gets underway Friday night when Michael Orozco, Paul Arriola and Club Tijuana work to increase their one-point advantage at the top of the Liga MX table when they welcome Club Atlas to Estadio Caliente (10 p.m. ET – Azteca America).

On Saturday, Bobby Wood and Hamburg will try to move past last week’s late 1-0 defeat against Bayern Munich when they take on John Brooks and Hertha Berlin (9:30 a.m. ET – FoxSoccer2Go). Hertha Berlin currently sit fourth in the table, equal on points with Borussia Moenchengladbach and Eintracht Frankfurt.

Following a late assist to help Borussia Dortmund earn a 2-2 draw with Real Madrid in UEFA Champions League play at midweek, Christian Pulisic and BVB keep up their pursuit of Bayern Munich at the top of the Bundesliga when they travel to face Bayer Leverkusen (12:30 p.m. – FS2).

Back in MLS, a number of MNT players have a chance to push their clubs onto the doorstep of the postseason, and with a little help in other matches this weekend clinch MLS Cup Playoff berths. Such is the case for Alejandro Bedoya and Philadelphia Union, who could go a long way towards locking down their first postseason berth since 2011 with a win against Sacha Kljestan and New York Red Bulls (7 p.m. – MLS Live). Steve Birnbaum and D.C. United could also book their third-straight playoff ticket with a win against Toronto FC along with other results, but Michael Bradley and Jozy Altidore will try to keep the Reds in contention for top spot in the Eastern Conference and the MLS Supporters Shield (7:30 p.m. ET – MLS Live)

Meanwhile, things are much more straightforward for Tim Howard and Colorado Rapids, who need just a victory against Darlington Nagbe and Portland Timbers to return to the MLS Cup Playoffs for the first time since 2013 (9 p.m. – MLS Live).

Sunday’s action kicks off early when Geoff Cameron and Stoke City head to the Theater of Dreams in search of their first victory of the season when they take on Manchester United (7 a.m. ET – NBCSN). Later on, Fabian Johnson and Borussia Moenchengladbach hope to bounce back from their 2-1 Champions League defeat to Barcelona with a visit to Schalke (11:30 a.m. ET – FS2).

On this side of the Atlantic, Omar Gonzalez and Pachuca work to keep the pressure on Club Tijuana and Tigres UANL at the top of Liga MX with a match at Puebla (7 p.m. ET – UDN) before the weekend closes with Jordan Morris and high-flying Seattle Sounders attempting to provide cushion for themselves above the red line in the Western Conference with a Cascadia Cup clash at Vancouver Whitecaps FC (8 p.m. ET – FS1).
