Americans Abroad Midweek Preview: Miazga, Sargent, and more


Matt Miazga’s move to EFL Championship side Reading has seen the young defender earn valuable minutes as he continues his development.

Since Miazga’s arrival to the club, Reading has posted a 5-7-3 record which has seen them jump out of the bottom three. With three matches remaining, beginning with Monday’s showdown with West Bromwich Albion, the Royal can clinch league safety with a win.

Miazga has totaled 1,350 minutes with Reading, close to double what he hauled in at Nantes earlier this season. His aggressive play and willingness to learn has helped Reading take points this month from top teams like Norwich City and Bristol City. West Brom rolled past Reading 4-1 back in October but it will be a much different affair on Monday at the Madejski Stadium.

Elsewhere, Josh Sargent and Aron Johannsson will both try to be included in Werder Bremen’s DFK Pokal semifinal tie against Bayern Munich. Tyler Adams and RB Leipzig take on Hamburg the day prior. Eric Lichaj and Hull City try to rebound from a weekend defeat, while Geoff Cameron and QPR face a trip to Derby County.
