As European continental competitions return, several Americans help to lead their sides to unlikely group stage escaped.
Christian Pulisic and Borussia Dortmund are in major trouble in their UEFA Champions League group heading into a must-win match with APOEL on Wednesday. As things stand, Dortmund sits on just one point through three games, six behind Tottenham and Real Madrid with three games remaining.
In the Europa League, Matt Miazga’s Vitesse also sits in danger with just a draw through three matchdays. Trailing second-place Nice by five points, Vitesse will need a result against Zulte Waregem to stay alive. Meanwhile, Aaron Schoenfeld’s Maccabi Tel Aviv enters Thursday’s match with Astana in last place of a group separated by just four points.
Elsewhere, Jonathan Gonzalez and Monterrey face Jorge Villafana, Ventura Alvarado and Santos Laguna in a Copa MX quarterfinal match while Jonathan Bornstein and Queretaro take on Club America.
