The MLS is returning with a bang, its very own tournament as a treat to soccer fans who missed out on four months of action. The MLS is Back Tournament will include all league teams, and with a 2021 Concacaf Champions League spot up for grabs, these are the four players to look out for.

4 Players to Watch for the MLS Is Back Tournament

Robbie Robinson

Robbie Robinson was Inter Miami’s top overall SuperDraft pick, and in his two regular-season games, he has shown plenty of potential. With Inter Miami being an unknown quantity in the MLS is Back Tournament, Robbie Robinson’s positive MLS beginning could point to a spectacular cup performance from the forward.

Brendan Aaronson

Philadelphia Union midfielder Brendan Aaronson had a pretty decent rookie season in 2019, and in his two games before the MLS ceased, he was impressive. The midfielder has shown that he’s capable of winning the ball in midfield, and he now seems eager to also add goals to his game.

Alvaro Medran

The biggest problem for the Chicago Fire is losing big names like Bastian Schweinsteiger and Nico Gaitan in the offseason. With few star players in the roster, it seems it might be up to Alvaro Medran to single-handedly get results for the Fire. With La Liga experience under his belt, Medran could be one to watch.

Ezequiel Barco

During his first two seasons with Atlanta United, Ezequiel Barco has shown plenty of promise. It all seemed to come together for him in March when he set the MLS on fire. If Barco plays in the MLS is Back Tournament like he did in his first two games, he’s going to have a big impact.

Soccer is back on the menu, and the MLS is Back Tournament will prove to be an exciting spectacle. The regular season is due to resume once the tournament is over, with group stage games counting toward teams’ regular-season records.
