Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: Dest, McKennie, and more


Sergino Dest and Ajax will look to remain atop of the Eredivisie table this weekend as they welcome their biggest rivals to town.

Ajax welcomes PSV to town in one of Europe’s top showdowns this weekend with Dest seeking another start for Erik ten Hag’s side. The 19-year-old Dest made his Champions League group stage debut midweek for Ajax in a 3-0 home victory over Lille. Dest has continued to win first-team minutes for the defending Dutch champs, but will face his toughest competition yet this weekend in the form of last season’s runners-up.

Elsewhere, Weston McKennie and Schalke entertain Mainz in Bundesliga action while Timothy Chandler will seek a second consecutive league start for Eintracht Frankfurt. Christian Pulisic and Chelsea take on Liverpool in a highly-contested EPL showdown. Jonathan Amon will seek a start for Nordsjaelland in Danish Superliga play, Theoson-Jordan Siebatcheu and Rennes face Lille, and Ventura Alvarado and Necaxa face Club Leon at home.
