Americans Abroad Midweek Preview: Sargent, Weah, and more

Josh Sargent has continued to rack up minutes with Werder Bremen this season and the U.S. Men’s National Team striker will now turn his sights towards the German DFB Pokal on Wednesday.

Werder Bremen visits 2. Bundesliga side Hannover on Wednesday, looking to keep its German Cup hopes alive. Sargent helped Bremen snap a four-match losing streak and nine-match unbeaten run on Saturday after downing Mainz 1-0 in Bundesliga play. The 20-year-old forward has scored one goal and registered two assists in league play so far, but most importantly has continued to develop into an all-around striker for Florian Kohfeldt’s side. Bremen will be favored to advance past Hannover, but Sargent could be called on lead the line against the lower-league hosts.

Elsewhere, Tim Weah and Lille face Montpellier in Ligue 1 play while Sergino Dest and Barcelona face a trip to Real Valladolid. Gio Reyna, John Brooks, and Tyler Adams will all look to feature in cup play in Germany. DeAndre Yedlin and Newcastle United visit Brentford in EFL Cup play with the USMNT veteran coming off his first league start of the new season.
