Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Adams, Brooks and more


Tyler Adams did not feature for RB Leipzig in UEFA Champions League play midweek, but did put in a solid 90 minute performance in Bundesliga action on Saturday.

Adams started for Julian Nagelsmann’s side and helped Leipzig to a 2-1 victory over Arminia Bielefeld. The U.S. Men’s National Team midfielder was active in his outing, completing 84% of his passes, earning three fouls, registering two tackles, and making four recoveries. Adams paired with Kevin Kampl in the heart of Leipzig’s midfield and showed his ability once again as a defensive midfielder. Leipzig sits second in Germany’s top flight, two points behind leaders Bayern Munich.

Elsewhere, Christian Pulisic returned for Chelsea in a scoreless London Derby draw with Tottenham. Duane Holmes scored his first goal for Derby County this season while John Brooks had a strong outing for Wolfsburg in a 5-3 Bundesliga win over Werder Bremen. Richie Ledezma made his first start for PSV, Matthew Hoppe made his senior debut for Schalke, and Haji Wright returned to the field for Danish side Sonderjyske. Julian Green’s strong two-way performance helped Greuther Furth move to top of the 2. Bundesliga table.
