The DFB Pokal semifinals kick off this weekend with a trio of U.S. Men’s National Team players all vying for a place in the final.
Josh Sargent and Werder Bremen face off with Tyler Adams and RB Leipzig on Friday in the first of two semifinals matchups this weekend. Sargent and Bremen will look to snap a four-match losing streak in league play, while Sargent attempts to end his own rut of seven matches without a goal.
Adams has been a consistent performer for Julian Nagelsmann’s side this season, making 27 league appearances and playing in a number of different roles for the club.
Gio Reyna will be hoping to join either Sargent or Adams in the DFB Pokal final by helping Borussia Dortmund knock off 2.Bundesliga side Holstein Kiel in the other semifinal, set for Saturday. Dortmund has hit a run of good form just in time to climb back into the race for the Bundesliga’s top four, and that run has coincided with Reyna finding his own excellent run of form.
