Wednesday isn’t the busiest day for Americans Abroad, but several U.S. Men’s National Team contributors could see the field in continental action.
Fabian Johnson will be out of action for Borussia Monchengladbach’s clash with Celtic, but another American in the Bundesliga could receive his chance on Tuesday. Carlo Ancelotti recently said Julian Green was in line for more first-team minutes, and the Bayern Munich forward could receive that look against PSV Eindhoven. Entering Wednesday’s match, Bayern sits second in the group with three points through two games after falling to Atletico Madrid last time out.
Omar Gonzalez and Pachuca are also in action on Wednesday as their spot in the next stage of the CONCACAF Champions League is all but sealed. With an eight-goal and three-point lead over Wednesday’s opponents, Olimpia, Gonzalez and co. still do have something to play for as Pachuca looks to lock up the top seed in next year’s knockout round.
Elsewhere, Jonathan Bornstein, Luis Gil and Queretaro take the field in Copa MX action, while Gedion Zelalem looks to play a part of Arsenal’s clash with Ludogorets Razgrad.
