The UEFA Champions League returns on Tuesday, and several Americans could take the field on what should be a busy day.
Among the more likely participants is Fabian Johnson, who will look to lead Borussia Monchengladbach to an upset of Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. The U.S. Men’s National Team fullback was rested over the weekend, meaning he should be ready to go in a crucial group stage opener. Elsewhere, Julian Green could see time as Bayern Munich takes on Russian side Rostov, while Gedion Zelalem is almost certainly going to be a spectator as Arsenal faces French powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain.
In England, the Championship returns with a full slate of midweek games, headlined by a clash between Danny Williams’ Reading and Jonathan Spector’s Birmingham City. DeAndre Yedlin and Newcastle also return to action against Queens Park Rangers, while Tim Ream, Luca de la Torre and Fulham face Burton Albion.
Finally, Omar Gonzalez’s Pachuca takes the field in CONCACAF Champions League action, while Jorge Villafana looks to help lead Santos Laguna in the Copa MX.
