Americans Abroad: Weekend Preview

Aron Johannsson Bremen

Following a busy slate of midweek games across Europe, the German Bundesliga headlines this weekend’s Americans Abroad with several head-to-head matches.

Headlining the potential clashes is a meeting between Fabian Johnson’s Borussia Monchengladbach and Aron Johannsson’s Werder Bremen, while Bobby Wood’s Hamburg faces Terrence Boyd’s RB Leipzig. Following Bayern Munich’s big midweek Champions League win, Julian Green will hope to join the fray on Saturday against Alfredo Morales and Ingolstadt.

In other Bundesliga action, Christian Pulisic and Borussia Dortmund face SV Darmstadt following a Champions League thrashing of Legia Warsaw.

Dutch soccer also provides a head-to-head matchup,  Rubio Rubin and FC Utrecht face Desevio Payne’s FC Groningen. In England, Lynden Gooch will look to continue his hot start with Sunderland against a Tottenham side that has yet to introduce Cameron Carter-Vickers despite several bench appearances.
