The roundup of USMNT players in Europe starts with the conclusion of the 2019-20 Bundesliga season. The biggest news for USMNT fans was Josh Sargent's Werder Bremen jumping ahead of Alfredo Morales and Zack Steffen's Fortuna Dusseldorf for 16th-place and the relegation playoff spot.
Werder Bremen started the final matchday in 17th-place, two points behind Fortuna Dusseldorf. Sargent scored in their 6-1 home win over Cologne. Yuya Osako put Werder up in the 22nd minute with Milot Rashica doubling the lead in the 27th and Nicklas Fullkrug making it 3-0 in the 29th. Davy Klaassen extended the lead to five in the 55th minute. Cologne pulled a goal back in the 62nd with Sargent scoring in the 68th minute.
"We have Union Berlin to thank," Fullkrug said. "It's incredible that they put in such a great effort on the final day. Perhaps we should send them a crate of beer… We're really, really happy today. It's back in our own hands again."
Morales subbed on in the 62nd minute of Fortuna Dusseldorf's 3-0 loss at Union Berlin, relegating Fortuna in 17th-place. Union Berlin scored in the 26th, 54th, and 90th minutes. Steffen wasn't in the squad for Fortuna.
"I'm sorry for our fans and the club," Fortuna coach Uwe Rosler said. "We fought week after week and in the end we didn't manage to get it across the line. We always played at the limit, but often didn't reward ourselves. Today we are behind due to a standard situation. Then we became restless. The second goal then kills us. We didn't take advantage of the opportunities we had at the front. I sympathize with my players. In the locker room I said to them that I am proud of them because they gave everything. In the end it was not enough."
