Following a busy midweek period, the weekend brings several intriguing matches for the contingent of Americans Abroad.
Christian Pulisic is fresh off a disappointing Champions League defeat against Tottenham, but the Borussia Dortmund winger has a chance to help his team bounce back against FC Koln on Sunday. It’s not the only intriguing Bundesliga match on the schedule, as Fabian Johnson and Borussia Monchengladbach face RB Leipzig while Bobby Wood leads Hamburg against Hannover.
In England, DeAndre Yedlin could make his season debut for Newcastle after returning to the bench last week. Yedlin has been dealing with an injury to start the campaign, and his return could be a boost as Newcastle takes on a Stoke City team without Geoff Cameron.
Elsewhere, Omar Gonzalez and Cameron Carter-Vickers look to build on midweek goals while Jonathan Gonzalez and Julian Green headline a list of younger players looking to build on solid performances last time out.
