MLS Playoffs sees the conclusion of the conference semifinals! And into the week we get another international break (although it doesn’t really begin in earnest until the 14th).
The international break is over (for the men’s game), and the European leagues kick back into gear while MLS settles the final playoff spots.
The international break continues, and if anything, a number of upsets have made things in Europe much more interesting than expected. Along with Euro and Africa Cup of Nation qualifiers, we are adding Women’s World Cup Qualifiers!
It’s an international break weekend, with international friendlies and Euro qualifiers.
