The international break continues this week but that doesn't put a stop to the action in Major League Soccer.

The Vancouver Whitecaps beat Real Salt Lake 2-1 at BC Place on Saturday in the only game of last week. But things will get a little busier from here, with three more matches coming over the weekend before getting stuck into some midweek action.

Read on to find out more about the MLS fixtures and how to watch them live:

Charlotte FC's post-Ramirez era begins with a match at home to the New York Red Bulls on Saturday. Major League Soccer's newest club parted ways with their first-ever head coach last week, with despite sitting just one place and two points below the Playoff line.

Assistant coach Christian Lattanzio takes over on an interim basis, but he won't have an easy start with the Red Bulls losing just one of their last 11 matches across all competitions and sitting fourth in the East.

For Charlotte, this is a chance for revenge after being dumped out of the US Open Cup against the Red Bulls.

After a rocky start to life in the Western Conference, Nashville SC are rolling. Gary Smith's side have lost just two of their last 12 games across all competitions, climbing into the Playoff spots and advancing to the US Open Cup quarter-finals.

Nashville return to their brand new GEODIS Park home for the visit of the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday - the California side are 13th in the West and winless in two, but are showing signs of recovery under interim head coach Alex Covelo.

3. Sporting Kansas City vs New England Revolution

Sunday says two MLS giants meet under unexpectedly tough circumstances.

Sporting Kansas City are bottom of the West with just three wins and 13 points from 15 matches so far, falling 1-0 at home to the Vancouver Whitecaps in their last match.

Coming to town this weekend are the New England Revolution who, despite winning the 2021 Supporters' Shield with a record points total, are stuck down in 11th in the East.

The Revs are unbeaten in five, but have drawn three of those fixtures with some clear defensive issues to iron out.

4. Seattle Sounders vs Vancouver Whitecaps

If the Whitecaps are to build on their dramatic win over RSL, they'll have to overcome the Concacaf Champions League holders and Cascadia rivals, Seattle Sounders.

Seattle's CCL commitments distracted them at the start of the season and Brian Schmetzer's side are still 11th in the West. But the Sounders have won three of their last four - including 2-1 at home to Charlotte last time out - and can leapfrog the 'Caps with a win in this one.

5. New England Revolution vs Orlando City

The rest of MLS may be quiet, but New England are very busy across this international break.

Bruce Arena's side host Orlando City a week on Wednesday in their second match over four days and they'll hope to take advantage of a recent wobble from the Lions, who have won just one of their last four matches.

Still, Oscar Pareja's side remain fifth in the East and have the firepower to tear through the very best on their day.

New England will take heart in being unbeaten in their last seven MLS matches against Orlando (W4, D3).
