Americans Abroad Midweek Preview: Reyna, Adams, and more


Borussia Dortmund comes into its opening match of the UEFA Champions League group stage in fine form and could rely on Giovanni Reyna to deliver against Lazio.

The Bundesliga side has won back-to-back league matches with Reyna delivering three assists in shutout wins. Reyna started both matches for Lucien Favre’s side and could return to the starting lineup on Tuesday at the Olimpico. The 17-year-old debuted in the competition last season and will look for further success this time around. Dortmund takes on a Lazio side who has failed to win in its last three matches, conceding eight goals over that span.

Elsewhere, Tyler Adams and Christian Pulisic will also seek Matchday 1 wins with their clubs while Tim Weah and Lille open group stage play in the Europa League. Cameron Carter-Vickers could make his Bournemouth debut in EFL Championship action this week. Romain Gall and Orebro face lower league competition in the Swedish Cup Round of 32 while Shaq Moore and Tenerife continue a busy league schedule.
