Americans Abroad Midweek Preview: Musah, Holmes, and more


La Liga action resumes this week with Yunus Musah and Valencia aiming to move further away from the bottom three.

Valencia travels to Granada on Wednesday looking to kickstart a move up the table after a shaky first-half start to the league season. Musah has been one of Valencia’s bright spots so far, appearing in 14 of the club’s 15 league matches to date, with one goal registered to his name. The 18-year-old U.S. Men’s National Team midfielder recently scored in Copa Del Rey action before the holiday and will now look to help Valencia earn its first league win over Granada since April 2017.

Elsewhere, Duane Holmes and Derby County face off with Birmingham City in EFL Championship action while Christian Pulisic and Chelsea face an in-form Aston Villa side. DeAndre Yedlin and Newcastle United welcome Liverpool to St. James Park on Wednesday. Sergino Dest and Barcelona return to play against Eibar as their push up the La Liga table continues.
