There might be all sorts of international matches over the course of this weekend, ensuring that MLS sides are missing a number of their key performers, but that has never been something to stop MLS and, indeed, it has not stopped six MLS sides from facing off today amongst the absences.

Saturday

New York City FC vs. New England Revolution

Watch it on: MLS Live

Kickoff: 12:00 p.m. PT at Yankee Stadium in New York City, NY

One sentence preview: The winless Revolution might struggle on the road against NYCFC, or their offense might finally take off against the attack-happy Citizens.

International call ups: Mix Diskerud (NYCFC, USA), Ronald Matarrita (NYCFC, Costa Rica), Lee Nguyen (NER, USA)

D.C. United vs. FC Dallas

Watch it on: MLS Live

Kickoff: 2:30 p.m. PT at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC

One sentence preview: Dallas remain the team that everyone is afraid of, but they have yet to get it done on the road in 2016 and will be missing a whopping six players to international call ups -- on par with the Timbers.

International call ups: Kellyn Acosta (FCD, USA), Tesho Akindele (FCD, Canada), Steve Birnbaum (DCU, USA), Jesse Gonzalez (FCD, Mexico), Atiba Harris (FCD, Saint Kitts and Nevis), Moises Hernandez (FCD, Guatamala), Alvaro Saborio (DCU, Costa Rica), Walker Zimmerman (FCD, USA)

Vancouver Whitecaps vs. Houston Dynamo

Watch it on: MLS Live

Kickoff: 7:00 p.m. at B.C. Place in Vancouver, BC

One sentence preview: Vancouver will look to string some wins together after earning their first points of the season in last weekend's win over the Seattle Sounders.

International call ups: Marco Bustos (VAN, Canada), Marco Carducci (VAN, Canada), Cristian Bolanos (VAN, Costa Rica), Boniek Garcia (HOU, Honduras), Tim Parker (VAN, USA), Blas Perez (VAN, Panama), Erick Torres (HOU, Mexico), Kendall Waston (VAN, Costa Rica)
