Americans Abroad: Weekend Preview (Musah faces Atletico, Zendejas set for Super Clasico, and more)


Yunus Musah is enjoying a solid season with La Liga side Valencia, but Valencia’s campaign has been a struggle that is threatening to leave the club relegated.

Last week’s win against Osasuna helped Musah and Valencia climb out of the relegation zone, but a much tougher test awaits on Saturday in Atletico Madrid.

Alejandro Zendejas committed his national team allegiance to the U.S. men’s national team last week, but before he joins up with the team for Concacaf Nations League he will lead Club America into its fiercest rivalry match, the Super Clasico, against Chivas Guadalajara.

In England, Tyler Adams is injured but Brenden Aaronson and Weston McKennie will be hoping to help Leeds earn valuable points when they visit Wolves on Saturday. Leeds is currently in the relegation zone, but a win against Wolves could catapult them to safety.

Antonee Robinson, Tim Ream and Fulham are in FA Cup action this weekend, with the Cottagers visiting Old Trafford on Sunday in the quarterfinals, with a victory securing a semifinal place at Wembley.

John Brooks and Pellegrino Matarazzo joined Hoffenheim at midseason and are in the midst of a spiral, with Hoffenheim suffering seven straight losses to plummet into last place in the German Bundesliga. That position could change with a win against Hertha Berlin, which is sitting just two points ahead of Hoffenheim in the standings.
