Americans Abroad Midweek Preview: McKennie, Cannon, and more

By

Juventus won’t repeat as Serie A champions this season, but will try to pick up a second trophy of the campaign with a Coppa Italia Final win on Wednesday.

Weston McKennie and his teammates face off with Atalanta looking to end their domestic schedule on a positive note. Andrea Pirlo’s side has already captured the Italian Super Cup earlier this season and will now try to pick up their second trophy ahead of the season finale this weekend. McKennie has come off the bench in the last two victories for the club against Sassuolo and Inter Milan and has a good chance of starting at the Stadio Mapei.

Should McKennie help Juventus win the Final, it will be the second trophy win of his Juventus career since arriving from Schalke.

Elsewhere, Reggie Cannon and Boavista will try to avoid relegation from the Portuguese Primera Liga while Christian Pulisic and Chelsea host Leicester City in a top four showdown in England. Lynden Gooch and Sunderland face off with Lincoln City in a first leg semifinal match in League One. Matt Miazga and Anderlecht try to keep pace in the Belgian Playoffs as they host Club Brugge.
