Three U.S. internationals are in action today as the second leg of the Europa League playoffs are contested this evening.
Steve Cherundolo and Hannover host Slasz Wroclaw and sit in the pole position of their series after collecting a 5-3 win in the first leg. AZ Alkmaar is down a goal after losing 1-0 at Anzhi Makhachkala, and Jozy Altidore looks to continue his impressive strike rate at home. Meantime, Terrence Boyd and Rapid Vienna welcome PAOK also needing to make up ground, having fallen 2-1 in the first game of the series. The away goal may prove crucial to Rapid Vienna's chances of reaching the tournament's group stage.
