Americans Abroad Midweek Preview: McKennie, Dest, and more

By

Schalke has failed to pick up a win in its last four matches in Bundesliga play, but will seek a major upset in German Cup action this week.

Weston McKennie and the rest of David Wagner’s side host Bayern Munich in the quarterfinals of the tournament, aiming to break their three-match goalless drought. McKennie has started the last six matches for the club, including a 3-2 win over Hertha Berlin in the Round of 16 of the German Cup. The 21-year-old midfielder has made 22 appearances for Wagner’s team this season in all competitions and has played in both of Schalke’s league losses to Bayern this season.

Elsewhere, Sergino Dest and Ajax will aim for a berth in the KNVB Cup Final while DeAndre Yedlin and Newcastle United face West Bromwich Albion in FA Cup play. Matt Miazga and Reading host Sheffield United in FA Cup play as well. Niko Hamalainen and Kilmarnock take on Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership, Ian Harkes and Dillon Powers are in Scottish Championship play, and Andrija Novakovich will aim for a third consecutive game with a goal.
