The English Premier League, German Bundesliga and French Ligue 1 kicked off their 2022-23 seasons on Friday with smoke and superclub firepower. On Saturday, the EPL delivered a first major thriller: Fulham held Liverpool to a 2-2 draw at Craven Cottage.

In fact, the Reds had to come from behind twice. Darwin Nuñez, off the bench for his Premier League debut, canceled out Aleksandar Mitrovic’s first-half opener. After Mitrovic again put Fulham ahead from the spot, Mo Salah equalized. But Liverpool couldn’t find a third goal, and could already find itself playing catchup in the title race.

Next, in the second EPL window, Brenden Aaronson and Tyler Adams — the two leaders of a USMNT migration to the Premier League — will debut for Leeds. Later, Chelsea could unveil Raheem Sterling at Everton. In Germany, after a few Americans take the field in early matches, Bayern’s two chief challengers do battle; and in France, Lionel Messi will hope to get what could be his final European season up and running at PSG.

With full MLS, NWSL and Liga MX slates in the evenings, sunrise-to-sunset soccer is back in America. Follow along below for the latest highlights and biggest stories from around the globe. (And, below that, a schedule of the top games to watch this weekend.)
