Sacha Kljestan was one of the two continental goal scorers this weekend with Aron Johannsson being the other.
Kljestan, fittingly, scored in his 100th appearance for Anderlecht in their 3-0 win over Waasland-Beveren. Johannsson, only days after an impressive debut for the United States men's national team, scored a nifty chip in AZ Alkmaar's 2-1 win over Waalwijk. He came off in the 73rd minute.
It was reported this week, via Brian Sciaretta of the New York Times, that forward Terrence Boyd will be out three weeks with a shoulder injury, which puts him in doubt for the U.S.' September World Cup qualifiers.
Alejandro Bedoya made his debut for Nantes in their 2-1 loss to Lorient. Bedoya was a 52nd-minute substitute.
Conor O’Brien started and went the distance for Nordsjaelland in their 2-1 win over AaB.
Mix Diskerud and Rosenborg tied Valerenga, 0-0. Diskerud started and played 70 minutes.
Steve Clark started in goal for Honefoss in their 1-0 loss to Sandnes.
Michael Bradley and Roma open up Serie A competition next week.
Josh Gatt is injured and is recovering from surgery.
