If this week’s UEFA Champions League matches were not enough to satisfy your cravings, you are in luck.
There is a host of interesting matches on tap on Thursday, as the UEFA Europa League Round of 32 gets underway. One of the main games of the day pits Eredivisie heavyweights Ajax vs. Salzburg while another sees FC Porto tangle with Eintracht Frankfurt.
From an Americans Abroad perspective, Aron Johannsson should take to the field as AZ Alkmaar look to grab a win in their first leg against Slovan Liberec. Johannsson is coming off a goal-scoring performance over the weekend, so he will be trying to carry the momentum gained from that into the Europa League fixture.
