Americans Abroad Midweek Preview: Adams, Dest, and more


RB Leipzig will aim to knock off Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain for the second time in UEFA Champions League play with Tyler Adams coming in on good form for the Bundesliga side.

Adams is coming off two strong appearances for the U.S. Men’s National Team this month and returned to club play with a 90-minute performance at right back against Eintracht Frankfurt. The 21-year-old played the final 14 minutes of RB Leipzig’s 2-1 Matchday 3 win over PSG, albeit without Kylian Mbappe and Neymar in the squad due to injuries. After putting in some good outings over the past few weeks, Adams could get the starting nod against Mbappe and PSG at the Parc Des Princes on Tuesday.

Elsewhere, Sergino Dest and Barcelona take on Dynamo Kyiv off the back of a disappointing La Liga loss to Atletico Madrid. Gio Reyna and Borussia Dortmund host Club Brugge in Champions League play as well, while Jesse Marsch’s Red Bull Salzburg gets another crack at Bayern Munich. Henry Wingo headlines the American contingent in Thursday’s Europa League action.
