Americans Abroad Midweek Preview: Green, Vassilev, and more

The German 2. Bundesliga returns this week with Julian Green aiming for his  first start since early November.

Green has scored four goals in 13 appearances this campaign, but missed the club’s last five matches due to injury. A home date with 11th place St. Pauli on Tuesday will be a tough test for Greuther Furth who are six points out of the playoff place in the division. The 24-year-old Green may need to play an important role for Stefan Leitl’s side if the club wants any chance of earning promotion to the Bundesliga.

Elsewhere, Indiana Vassilev will look to play a part in Aston Villa’s EFL Cup second leg vs. Leicester City. Eric Lichaj, Antonee Robinson, and Lynden Gooch also will be in action in league play. The German 2. Bundesliga returns with Bobby Wood and Sebastian Soto also in action for their respective clubs. Matt Polster and Rangers face Ross County in Glasgow, while Dillon Powers and Ian Harkes are in FA Cup replays against Hibernian.
