The European club season isn't quite here yet, but that doesn't mean there aren't some intriguing match-ups involving European clubs this weekend.
Arsenal, AC Milan, Lyon and Celtic are taking part in the Emirates Cup, while Inter Milan takes on Manchester City in another high-profile friendly American soccer fans can watch on TV. The weekend's action is kicked off tonight with Chivas Guadalajara's opening of a new stadium with the arrival of favorite son Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez and Manchester United.
Major League Soccer is in full swing this week, with eight matches on the schedule. Thierry Henry's MLS debut for the New York Red Bulls will come on Saturday night against the Houston Dynamo, while the suddenly struggling Los Angeles Galaxy look to rebound against the Chicago Fire.
