Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: Christian Pulisic, Matt Miazga, and more

Borussia Dortmund seems to have found daylight in the German Bundesliga after a poor close to 2017.

The team has gone unbeaten in eight matches straight, winning three of their last four league fixtures while also advancing in the UEFA Europa League. Christian Pulisic’s numbers may be down from a season ago, but the American has a lot to prove in the final months of the current campaign. Pulisic has two assists to kick off February, but has cooled off since as Dortmund will travel to RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga match of the weekend.

Aron Johannsson and Werder Bremen open this weekend’s action in Germany as they face Borussia Monchengladbach away from home. Bobby Wood and Hamburg desperately need a positive performance at home against Mainz.

In the Netherlands, Matt Miazga faces a clash with a powerhouse as Vitesse takes on Ajax in a big-time Eredivisie clash.

Meanwhile in England, Geoff Cameron and Stoke City will aim for three points at Southampton in the EPL, while Danny Williams and Huddersfield travel to Tottenham.

Elsewhere, Tim Ream and Fulham travel to Derby County in an intriguing match in the EFL Championship. Cameron Carter-Vickers will hope to lead Ipswich Town to another clean sheet vs. Hull City, while Eric Lichaj returns for Nottingham Forest. Erik Palmer-Brown and Kortrijk face a tough test at Club Brugge in Belgium, while Kenny Saief and Anderlecht face Waregem away from home.

    • The haters of MLS will ignore this, but for me J. Jones provides a nice validation of the league. He was a good player, but not a world beater for Seattle. He jumped right into the starting line-up in Germany and scored 3 goals in his first 6-7 games playing as a wingback.

      • Not trying to go tit for tat but Russel Canouse barely got any mins in 2 bundesliga for Bouchem but step right into starting line up for DC. Damstadt is also in next to last place and most likely headed down again

  1. Timothy Weah was added to PSG’s first team squad for tomorrows game. They are resting some regulars. Big day for him.

  2. Well, if nothing else, this would seem to be the most Americans in Europe that I’ve ever seen. No mention of McKennie. Is he still injured? Any chance that Sargent makes the bench for the first team? Probably too much to hope for.
