The top two teams in the German Bundesliga square off this weekend with a pair of Americans aiming to play a part on the field.
Tyler Adams and RB Leipzig travels to defending champions Bayern Munich in Saturday’s final match of the day. Leipzig currently sits two points behind Bayern for the top spot in the league table and know a victory at the Allianz Arena would see them finish the weekend in top spot. Adams played the final 45 minutes midweek in Leipzig’s 4-3 UEFA Champions League victory over Istanbul Basaksehir, but looks to have been given more chances in league play this season.
Chris Richards will hope to get minutes for Hansi Flick’s side after also featuring in UCL play midweek. The 20-year-old has appeared in two Bundesliga matches this season, registering one assist in a 4-3 win over Hertha Berlin back in early October. After making back-to-back starts in European play, Richards could get the nod in Flick’s starting lineup at home.
Elsewhere, Christian Pulisic and Chelsea look to keep their good form going against Leeds United while Antonee Robinson and Fulham face Manchester City away from home. Josh Sargent will hope to feature for Werder Bremen in league action after missing last weekend’s defeat to Wolfsburg. Matt Miazga and Chris Durkin headline the American contingent in Belgium while Andrija Novakovich and Frosinone take on Chievo Verona in Serie B.
