A top of the table clash in Italy is the perfect way to start everyone’s weekend of soccer.
AS Roma, current leaders in Italy, take on fellow undefeated side Napoli at the Stadio Olimpico in a bid to continue their perfect start to the season. American midfielder Michael Bradley makes the bench for the first time since injuring his ankle in Costa Rica last month with the U.S. Men’s National Team. Gonzalo Higuain has been ruled out for Napoli, making their chances of winning on the road that much more difficult.
Also in action on Friday, TSG Hoffenheim square off in a Bundesliga matchup against UEFA Champions League Bayer Leverkusen, Olympique Marseille visit OGC Nice, and in the evening, Sporting KC host D.C. United in MLS action while Santos Laguna host stumbling Monterrey in Liga MX.
