Pulisic's Chelsea denies Man City title celebrations; Reyna's Dortmund hands Bayern title

Christian Pulisic helped Chelsea deny Manchester City a chance to celebrate the 2021 Premier League title on Saturday when the Blues rallied for a 2-1 win in a battle of the two 2021 UEFA Champions League finalists.

Pulisic went the distance and was involved in the first Chelsea goal scored by Hakim Ziyech. Zack Steffen was on the bench for Manchester City.



Gio Reyna started for Borussia Dortmund in its 3-2 win over RB Leipzig, handing Bayern Munich its ninth straight Bundesliga title. Chris Richards played in three games for Bayern Munich before moving on loan to Hoffenheim in January.

Sergino Dest saw his chances of winning LaLiga championship in his first season at Barcelona take a big hit when it could only manage a 0-0 tie with leader Atletico Madrid. Dest played 75 minutes before exiting the game.

Americans are also playing for teams leading in Austria (Brenden Aaronson's Red Bull Salzburg), Belgium (Ethan Horvath's Club Brugge) and France (Tim Weah's Lille) and have already won league titles in Switzerland (Jordan Siebatcheu's Young Boys) and Hungary (Henry Wingo's Ferencvaros).

Also on Saturday: Matt Miazga scored in stoppage time to give Anderlecht a 1-1 tie with Royal Antwerp in Belgium's Pro League championship round.
