Sivasspor inched further away from the relegation zone in the Turkish Super Lig this week and Tyler Boyd got a rare start for the club in the process.
Boyd got the nod in a 1-1 draw with Hatayspor on Wednesday, helping the club move to seven points from the bottom four. The Besiktas loanee impressed in his second start for Sivasspor, coming close to scoring on two occasions. Boyd also won 12 of his 17 duels in the match from right wing, while also completing all six of his dribbles and making five recoveries. Despite not finding the back of the net, Boyd recorded two shots on goal and was lively in the club’s second-straight draw in league play.
Up next is a trip to league leaders Galatasaray on Sunday, a chance for Boyd to square off with international teammate DeAndre Yedlin.
Elsewhere, Tyler Adams and RB Leipzig advanced in the German Cup while Sergino Dest and Barcelona will play for the Copa Del Rey Final in April. Christian Pulisic came off the bench to close out an important EPL victory for Chelsea. Cameron Carter-Vickers and Daryl Dike also scored this week in victories while Matt Miazga helped Anderlecht advance in the Belgian Cup competition. Weston McKennie got the start for Juventus, who picked up a 3-0 league win over Spezia.
