Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: Musah faces off with Dest, and more

Sergino Dest and Yunus Musah were teammates for the first time in November when Musah made his debut for the U.S. Men’s National Team. A month later the new international teammates will square off as opponents for the first time.

Yunus Musah and Valencia faces off with Sergino Dest and Barcelona on Saturday with the pair of young Americans set to square off in league action. The 18-year-old Musah has scored one goal for Valencia this season in 12 league outings so far, continuing to rack up minutes for the current 12th-place side. Dest has emerged as a regular starter at right back for Ronald Koeman’s side and will look to help Barcelona spark a turnaround in La Liga play, with the club well behind the top four.

In other Americans Abroad action, Christian Pulisic will look to remain in Frank Lampard’s starting lineup as Chelsea hosts West Ham United in a London derby. John Brooks and Wolfsburg take on Pellegrino Matarazzo’s Stuttgart in Bundesliga action while Antonee Robinson and Fulham look to carry over confidence from last weekend’s draw with Liverpool into a weekend date with Newcastle United. Duane Holmes and Matthew Olosunde could go head-to-head in the Championship.
