A match with the reigning European champions is never a welcome sight, but Pulisic did step up in a big way when his side took on Cristiano Ronaldo and co. last year.
In Europa League action, Matt Miazga and Vitesse face off with French side Nice on Thursday while Aaron Schoenfeld and Maccabi Tel Aviv take on Villarreal.
