Americans Abroad Midweek Preview: Steffen, Dest, and more

Zack Steffen and Fortuna Dusseldorf have struggled for most of the Bundesliga season, but will look to turn the side beginning Tuesday.

Dusseldorf travels to Augsburg this week, continuing a busy holiday schedule of matches in league play. The team is currently 16th in the German top flight, earning 12 points from 15 matches. Steffen has started every league match for the club after arriving on-loan from Manchester City this summer, keeping two clean sheets. The 24-year-old may need to put in a Man of the Match performance on the road if Dusseldorf want to get anything from their trip.

Elsewhere, Sergino Dest will look to play a part in Ajax’s Dutch Cup trip to Telstar. Timmy Chandler and Eintracht Frankfurt hope to bounce back against Koln in Bundesliga play, while John Brooks and Wolfsburg face Schalke at home. Tyler Boyd and Theoson-Jordan Siebatcheu will try to help their teams advance in respective cup competitions.
