Klingenberg in top-of-the-table clash for title

[AMERICANS ABROAD: Damallsvenskan] U.S. international Meghan Klingenberg will look to win Sweden's Damallsvenskan Saturday when Tyreso travels to LdB Malmo in a top-of-the-table clash for the title.

LdB Malmo takes a three-point lead into the game, but Tyreso has a huge edge in the tiebreaker.

Six Americans started in Wednesday's FC Gothenburg-Fortuna Hjorring match in the UEFA Women's Champions League.

Yael Averbuch's goal in the 72nd minute gave Gothenburg a 1-1 tie with Fortuna. Christen Press, Ingrid Wells and Cam Levin also started for Gothenburg, which is tied for fourth place in the Damallsvenskan.

Tiffany Weimer and Casey Ramirez started for Fortuna, which is second in the Denmark's Elitedivisionen with a 9-1-1 record.

Americans have already won titles in other spring-fall leagues:

-- Casey Berrier (Loyola, Ill.), Liz Bogus (Arizona State), Cynthia Morote-Ariza (Loyola, Ill.) and Cat Walker (San Diego State) at PK-35 in Finland.

-- Goalie Chantel Jones (Virginia), Kayla Grimsley (South Carolina) and Tahnai Annis (Florida) at Thor/KA in Iceland's Urvalsdeild Women.
