Americans Abroad: Weekend Preview (Dest in El Clasico, Adams vs. Green, and more)

Sergiño Dest has been in an excellent run of form in recent weeks, for both club and country, and Barcelona will need every bit of Dest’s best this weekend against Real Madrid in the season’s first installment of El Clasico.

Dest and Barcelona face Real Madrid at the Camp Nou on Sunday looking to extend their winning run to three matches in all competitions. The U.S. men’s national team right back has delivered some impressive outings since his involvement in World Cup Qualifiers and will now look to help Barcelona snap a four-match winless run against Real Madrid in league play.

Elsewhere in Europe, there are a few potential American vs. American matchups on tap, with Tyler Adams and Julian Green going head-to-head in German Bundesliga play while Yunus Musah and Matthew Hoppe could see each other in La Liga action.

In other Americans Abroad action, Hoffenheim loanee Chris Richards faces his parent club Bayern Munich. Josh Sargent will look to help Norwich City earn its first Premier League win of the season as the Canaries face Chelsea in London. Tim Weah and Konrad De La Fuente headline the American contingent in Ligue 1 play this weekend. Jordan Pefok and Young Boys will try to rebound from a Champions League defeat midweek.

  1. I watched some of the first half of Alan Sonora from Thursday. His assist came from his free kick to the back post. Didn’t watch enough to say either way how close to a call up he should be but free kick taker is pretty unsettled for the NT.

  2. Dante Sealy starting the weekend off with a hat-trick for Jong PSV in the Dutch 2nd Division. Hope he’s back playing for Luchi and the U20s in November. Reportedly USSF is in talks with the former FCD manager.
