The FIFA World Cup has paved the way for the resumption of club football across the globe.
Although some football leagues still continued their football seasons, most major football leagues took a 6-week break to accommodate the tournament. All of that is long gone now.
As we look ahead to another weekend, there’ll be more than enough club football action across board. To help know where to look this weekend, here are some of the football leagues that will feature football action this weekend:
Major League Soccer
It’s one of the many football leagues that didn’t go on a break during the World Cup tourney. Divided into two conferences (typical of sports being played in the USA), as much as 16 games have been played so far this season.
Team to look out for: Of the 23 teams involved, Atlanta United has scored the most goals – 46 goals in 22 games, an average of two goals scored per game.
Can they score Over 1,5 goals?

Unlike the MLS, the Japanese J1 League took a break to accommodate the FIFA World Cup. With major names like Andres Iniesta and Fernando Torres joining the fray, Japanese football is about to get some major spotlight in the coming days.
Team to look out for: Sanfrecce Hiroshima currently tops the table. They’ve only lost two games (out of 17 played), and have only condeded 8 goals – the least by any team in the league.
There are a number of countries that call their top-flight football league by the name “Bundesliga.” The one that’s about to kick off this weekend is the Austrian Bundesliga.
What to look out for: The Austrian Bundesliga is a league in which a lot of teams score a lot of goals. With this being the season opener, there could as well be a festival of goals.
CAF Champions League
The continental club football in Africa continues. This weekend, the second half of group stage games will begin as 16 teams continue the race to qualify for the knockout stage.
Team to look out for: TP Mazembe from DR Congo remains the only side in the competition with a 100% record. They’ve won all of their three games, scoring 7 goals in the process and conceding just 1.
The first leg ended in a 1-0 win for Mazembe.
Can they win again in not-so-friendly North Africa?
