Americans Abroad: Weekend Preview


After a big win against Norwich City last weekend, DeAndre Yedlin and Sunderland face a much tougher battle against Arsenal on Sunday.

Sam Allardyce’s men are now just a point behind Norwich with a game in hand. Yedlin and the rest of the Sunderland back line kept a clean sheet against Norwich, but Arsene Wenger’s men haven’t lost in six league matches.

Christian Pulisic hopes to get another start with Borussia Dortmund when the team faces Stuttgart. The young American will be in the center of a dogfight against a side that is one bad result away from dropping into the relegation zone. After a great performance capped with a goal last week, Dortmund fans can expect a confident teenager to help boss the midfield this weekend.

Elsewhere, Bobby Wood and Union Berlin will take the field against Nurnberg as the red-hot striker looks to continue his incredible goal-scoring season.

Here’s what is in store for the Americans abroad this weekend:


Michael Orozco, Greg Garza, Paul Arriola, Alejando Guido and Club Tijuana play Pumas.

      • Disappointing to see Le Havre struggling to get and keep that third promotion spot. I get the sinking feeling he should’ve stayed at Stabaek for the Europa run:/

      • At Stabaek, he would have had three preliminary rounds before even getting into the group stage. Then you play the end of the group stage and first knockout stages in your off season, not usually a good proposition. Molde this year really was as good of a run as a Norwegian side has made in a while and they were significantly better than Stabaek in league play. Several of their better players also were in line to be sold. Staying at Stabaek wasn’t really a great option. Le Havre is a good spot he just may have to stay there a little while.
