Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: Brooks faces Reyna in Bundesliga return, and more


The German Bundesliga resumes this weekend with two of the top five clubs in the standings facing off in Dortmund.

John Brooks and fourth place Wolfsburg take the trip to Signal Iduna Park to face Gio Reyna and Borussia Dortmund. The hosts have been a nice surprise in league play this season, posting three wins out of its past four matches. Brooks has been a mainstay in the Wolfsburg backline this season, making 12 appearances and scoring one goal.

Dortmund has alternated results in its past five matches in all competitions, falling to fifth in the league standings in a rut that cost manager Lucien Favre his job. Reyna has produced a solid campaign so far, scoring three league goals and contributing four assists in 13 appearances to date. The 18-year-old will face off with his international teammate in what should be an mouthwatering showdown on Sunday.

Elsewhere, Christian Pulisic and Chelsea host Zack Steffen and Manchester City in the Premier League showdown of the weekend. Antonee Robinson and Fulham travel to Burnley while DeAndre Yedlin and Newcastle United face Leicester City.

German second division action resumes this weekend with Julian Green and Greuther Furth hosting St. Pauli. Sergino Dest and Barcelona aim to stay in the title race picture in Spain as they travel to Huesca on Sunday afternoon.
