Americans Abroad Tuesday Preview: Johnson, Green and more


The UEFA Champions League takes centerstage on Tuesday as several Americans hope to see the field in continental play.

Headlining the day is Fabian Johnson, who is the most likely American to find the field on Tuesday’s schedule. Johnson and Borussia Monchengladbach travel to Scotland to take on Celtic, and the German club will hope to take advantage of a Manchester City slip-up against Barcelona to leap up the table.

Monchengladbach isn’t the only German side in action on Tuesday, as Julian Green and Bayern Munich take on PSV Eindhoven. Green showed well in a recent cup appearance, scoring his first competitive goal. However, manager Carlo Ancelotti says he will play a strong lineup against the Dutch club on Tuesday, meaning Robert Lewandowski will likely be in line for the start.

Elsewhere, Gedion Zelalem’s Arsenal faces Ludogorets, while Gboly Ariyibi and Chesterfield take the field in English League One action.

Here’s a look at Tuesday’s Americans Abroad:

Fabian Johnson and Borussia Monchengladbach face Celtic.

Julian Green and Bayern Munich visit PSV Eindhoven.

Gedion Zelalem and Arsenal face Ludogorets.

Gboly Ariyibi and Chesterfield visit Coventry City.


  1. If Bayern wins today it will clinch advancement setting up a nice opportunity for Green to start against Rostov on Nov. 23 and maybe even Athletico in December.

    • Extremely, extremely unlikely. They will absolutely try to finish 1st in the group, something that cannot be locked in until the last matchday. I don’t expect Green to even be on the bench 🙁

      • You might be right I did’t look those matches are at Rostov, and home for Athleti and Bayern has a significant GD advantage over AMadrid so a win on the final day would put them top of the group assuming both win match day 5. Still think he has a shot to be on the bench for Rostov.

  2. Monchengladbach needs a win if it wants a realistic chance to catch Man. City. A win would almost assure them a spot in the Europa League which they missed last year by finishing last in their group.
