Michael Bradley could make his first appearance in Serie A this weekend
It's back to work for European leagues this weekend, with the big news happening in Italy where the season is underway. That means Michael Bradley could make his debut for Chievo Verona on Sunday when they meet Serie A newcomers Novara.
Over in England the Premier League returns. Clint Dempsey and Fulham host Blackburn at Craven Cottage. Everton and TIm Howard face Aston Villa in a game you can watch on Fox Soccer Plus (6 p.m. ET, delay).

In Scotland, Rangers' trio travel to Tannadice to face Dundee United tomorrow. Carlos Bocanegra and Maurice Edu return from international duty while Alejandro Bedoya could win his full debut for the team after coming on as a sub in the last match.
In Germany, Timmy Chandler and Nurnberg travel to Cologne in a game you can watch on ESPN3 on Sunday at 9:30 a.m. ET. Also in Germany, Steve Cherundolo and Hannover head to Stuttgart.
Around the rest of Europe, Jozy Altidore and AZ take on Vitesse Arnhem on Saturday, Clarence Goodson and Brondby face Koge in Denmark's top flight, and Sacha Kljestan and Anderlecht play host to KV Kortrijk in Brussels.
