Americans Abroad: Weekend Preview (Weah, Adams, and more)

19 Shares

Tim Weah and Lille enjoyed a dream campaign on the way to a Ligue 1 title last season, but those memories feel very far away amid a terrible start to the new season.

Weah and Lille will have a chance to revive some hope in their faltering campaign with a win against current Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain, Weah’s former club.

Weah has started in two of Lille’s last three matches since his return from U.S. men’s national team duty, but has been unable to help his side claim a victory over that span.

In other Americans Abroad action, Tyler Adams and Timmy Chandler will go head-to-head in German Bundesliga action while Sergino Dest and Matt Miazga cross paths in La Liga play.

In Italy, Weston McKennie and Juventus face off with Hellas Verona in Serie A while Luca De La Torre faces his strongest test yet this season with a match against Ajax.
