Americans Abroad Midweek Preview: McKennie, Brooks, and more


Juventus has fallen out of the Serie A title race and soon could find its way out of the top four if it doesn’t pick up the pace in Italy.

Weston McKennie and the rest of his Juventus teammates will try and right the ship this weekend with a winnable home match versus relegation threatened Parma. Juventus sits two points clear of fifth place Napoli for the time being, but has failed to win three of its last five league matches. McKennie started over the weekend in a 1-0 loss to Atalanta on Sunday, failing to make much of an impact in his 77-minute shift.

The Old Lady breezed past Parma 4-0 back in December, and will try to do more of the same in Turin this week.

Elsewhere, John Brooks and Wolfsburg will try to rebound in Bundesliga play against Pellegrino Matarazzo’s Stuttgart. Christian Pulisic and Chelsea face off with Brighton & Hove Albion looking to remain in the top four in the EPL. A trio of U.S. Women’s National Team players will look to lead Manchester City to an important win over Chelsea in the Women’s Super League while Sergino Dest and Barcelona hosts Getafe in Spain.
