Americans Abroad Midweek Preview: Reyna, Adams, and more


Borussia Dortmund has come out of its winter break flying high with four-consecutive victories and Gio Reyna is fighting to not only help the club advance this week in the German Cup, but also earn his first start since November.

Reyna is riding a strong run of form in Edin Terzic’s squad, scoring in three-straight substitute performances against Augsburg, Mainz and Freiburg. The 20-year-old Reyna will now hope to start against Bochum on Wednesday, seeking another victory in 2023 and a spot in the DFB Pokal quarterfinals. Reyna has boosted his season tally to five goals in league play but has yet to score in the cup competition. A showdown with a streaky Bochum squad could provide Reyna with the best opportunity to continue his scoring run and also earn a spot in the starting lineup during Dortmund’s busy schedule.

In England, Tyler Adams, Weston McKennie, and Brenden Aaronson will try and lead Leeds United past Manchester United.

In France, Tim Weah and Lille take on Lyon in Coupe De France play. Folarin Balogun and Stade Reims also fight to advance in the tournament.

Elsewhere, Djordje Mihailovic and Taylor Booth meet for the second time in two weeks.
