The International break will not stop the North American league on Saturday, although some of the teams' finest players will not be around.

Most top leagues in the world have been brought to a halt, but Major League Soccer will continue to provide excitement and fine goals for their fans across the world and within the United States.

There are still some unbeaten teams in both conferences, which could be the hint for the enticing games we will witness this weekend. Unlike other matchdays, the complete lot of games will be held on Saturday, giving players a chance to rest during the full week unlike some of their peers on international duty.

This could also be an interesting week to see how teams adapt to their absences, whether they came from the International break or through injuries. Such is the case of Inter Miami, who may be forced to play their second game of the season without Lionel Messi. The Argentine was unavailable during the team's match last week, and he even turned down Argentina's call up to recover from a calf injury.

Here are the main things to keep in mind ahead of this weekend's matches.

Top games to watch 

New York RB vs Inter Miami - The Red Bulls return to their stadium following a disappointing 3-0 loss to the Columbus Crew. Now, they get to face the hottest ticket in town as Inter Miami get ready to walk into Red Bull Arena after a good victory over DC United last week. Fans who were expecting to see Messi around may be disappointed since the Argentine's fitness is still a question mark, and it seems highly unlikely to see him making a cameo appearance for the Herons.

Cincinnati vs New York City FC - The Orange and Blue are one of the few unbeaten teams in the league, and they are ready to defend that reputation when they host NYCFC, a team that has lost three out of their four matches this season. Curiously, Cincinnati lost their first six games against New York, but now, the tables have turned and see Cincinnati enjoying a three-game winning streak and a five-match unbeaten run against the Newyorkers. Are those stats enough to predict a win for Pat Noonan's men?
