Juventus sits in the top four of the Serie A table, but faces a major test this weekend in the form of rivals AC Milan.
Weston McKennie and his Juventus teammates will try and move one step closer to a spot in next season’s UEFA Champions League with three points this weekend. The Old Lady won’t repeat as league winners this spring, but can end the season on a strong note with a top four finish and a Coppa Italia triumph later this month vs. Atalanta.
McKennie has scored five league goals and added two assists in 30 appearances, playing a key role in his first season in Turin. The U.S. Men’s National Team midfielder has five more opportunities to impress this season before joining up with his international teammates ahead of a busy summer. McKennie scored in his first meeting with AC Milan in January and will be eager to do more of the same at home on Sunday.
Elsewhere, Christian Pulisic and Chelsea face off with Manchester City in Premier League play while Daryl Dike and Barnsley prepare for the EFL Championship playoffs with a league finale against Norwich City. Sergino Dest and Barcelona aim to move closer to the La Liga title by facing off with Atletico Madrid. Gio Reyna and Borussia Dortmund host RB Leipzig in Bundesliga play ahead of next week’s German Cup final, while Brenden Aaronson and Red Bull Salzburg look to inch closer to clinching the Bundesliga title in Austria.
