Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: McKennie, Reyna, and more

The German Bundesliga season resumes this weekend with Weston McKennie and Schalke aiming for a win on Friday.

Fifth-place Schalke hosts second-place Borussia Monchengladbach to kick off the weekend’s play. McKennie aims to start for David Wagner’s side as he returns from a shoulder injury suffered back in December. The 21-year-old U.S. Men’s National Team star has made 13 appearances for the Gelsenkirchen side this season, helping them to a strong start this campaign. McKennie could lineup against former USMNT veteran Fabian Johnson, who aims to get back into Gladbach’s starting lineup.

Elsewhere, Josh Sargent and Werder Bremen take on Zack Steffen and Alfredo Morales and Fortuna Dusseldorf. Giovanni Reyna will look to make his senior debut for Borussia Dortmund against Augsburg, while John Brooks and Wolfsburg take on Koln. Chris Durkin aims to continue earning minutes for Sint-Truiden in Belgium, Matthew Olosunde and Rotherham United will look to stay atop League One in England, and Tim Ream and Fulham face Middlesbrough in London.

  1. Gio Reyna came on in the 72nd for Dortmund. Nice to see him already getting timeafter getting moved up.

    Anyone know the deal with Steffen and Morales? Neither were in the lineup. I know Steffen has been dealing with the knee, but the only info I could find on any Morales injury is old. Johnny or east, you guys seem to find it all.

  2. Ledezma apparently heard my concerns about production and scored two goals in a 4-2 loss. They played final 55 down a man. Both goals came when they were playing with 10. Gloster was back in the lineup at LB as well.
