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

The Bundesliga top four race continues to heat up with only a handful of matches left to play and a pair of U.S. Men’s National Team will square off this weekend with hopes of boosting their clubs chances of making it.

John Brooks and Wolfsburg return home on Saturday to face off with Gio Reyna and Borussia Dortmund. Wolfsburg is coming off an important 3-1 road victory against Stuttgart on Wednesday, one that saw Brooks log another 90 minute shift for Oliver Glasner’s side. Brooks has continued to be one of the top centerbacks in the Bundesliga this season, but should expect a tough challenge against Dortmund.

The Black and Yellow sits four points back of fourth place Eintracht Frankfurt after a 2-0 victory over Union Berlin. Reyna played 76 minutes from the start for the hosts, delivering a strong showing, despite not getting on the scoresheet. The 18-year-old has continued to earn minutes at a rapid rate in Dortmund and will look to get the better of his international teammate this weekend.

Elsewhere, Zack Steffen and Manchester City will look to capture its first trophy of the season as the Citizens face Tottenham in the Carabao Cup Final. Christian Pulisic and Chelsea remain in league action this weekend against West Ham United while Tyler Adams and RB Leipzig hosts Pellegrino Matarazzo’s Stuttgart.

Tim Weah and Lille face a tough top-four clash with Lyon on Sunday. Sergino Dest and Barcelona’s quest for the La Liga crown continues with a clash against Villarreal. Brenden Aaronson and Red Bull Salzburg try to bounce back in Bundesliga play against Wolfsberger.
