Americans Abroad Midweek Preview: Pulisic, Lichaj, and more


Borussia Dortmund has kicked off its campaign in fine form and the Bundesliga club will seek another win in the UEFA Champions League midweek.

Christian Pulisic played the hero in their slim victory over Club Brugge on Matchday 1 and the U.S. Men’s National Team midfielder will hope for a similar showing. The 20-year-old will have a tough task at hand as Dortmund welcome AS Monaco to Signal Iduna Park. Monaco may be without a win in their last eight matches, but that could easily change if Dortmund are not on top form.

Elsewhere, Weston McKennie will seek another strong outing in the Champions League as Schalke travels to Lokomotiv Moscow. Ethan Horvath will seek a start as Club Brugge face Atletico Madrid.

Romain Gall and Malmo continue their UEFA Europa League group stage at home against Besiktas. Kenny Saief and Anderlecht welcome Dinamo Zagreb to town, while Lynden Gooch and Sunderland are in action in the EFL League One.
