Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: Christian Pulisic, DeAndre Yedlin, and more

Bayern Munich has had the last laugh against Borussia Dortmund in their last two meetings, downing them in both league and cup action. Christian Pulisic and his side will look to pull a major upset on Saturday, traveling to the league leaders in Bundesliga play. Dortmund are sitting in third place in the table, fighting with Schalke and a few others for a second-place finish. Despite being ousted from the Europa League, Dortmund have turned their play around in 2018 and will look towards the 19-year-old American for a spark this weekend.

Schalke will also look to keep their place in the league table as Weston McKennie and company welcome Freiburg to town. Fabian Johnson and Gladbach travel to Mainz on Easter, while Timmy Chandler and Frankfurt travel to Aron Johannsson and Werder Bremen.

The new Allsvenskan campaign kicks off this weekend in Sweden, with a trio of Americans set for action. Mix Diskerud and Goteborg travel to Trelleborg in the conclusion of Sunday’s action. Elsewhere, Timothy Weah and PSG face off with Monaco in the Coupe De La Ligue final, while DeAndre Yedlin and Newcastle face Huddersfield Town in EPL action.

  1. don’t be surprised if mckennie misses schalke’s game. it sounds like either the knock that kept him out of the paraguay game or something he picked up on the way back to germany may keep him sidelined.
