The Major League Soccer playoffs are underway, and will continue to roll through the week, with the final two spots in the conference semifinals being decided in the next two days.

The UEFA Champions League returns to action this week, meaning several top Americans will be in action, including Christian Pulisic, who returned from international duty to open his Premier League scoring account for the new year.
