As this is a Cup match I expect Son Heung-Min to either start or be benched this week. [Note: in the US, game will be televised on Fox Sport 1]

Ryu Seung-Woo is currently participating at the AFC U23 Championship.

Hong Jeong-Ho was named one of the best players last week, I expect him to start against Frankfurt. [US internet streaming: Fox Soccer 2Go]

I expect Ji Dong-Won to either start or make bench this week against Frankfurt.

Koo Ja-Cheol has started training this week but it’s too early for him to start league matches.

Borussia Dortmund’s first choice left back Marcel Schmelzer is currently out with an injury, good news for Park Joo-Ho as he will get more playing time. I expect Park Joo-Ho to start this week against Ingolstadt. [US TV: Fox Sports 2]

I expect Lee Chung-Yong to be benched this week, hopefully he impresses when he gets subbed on. [In the US, no TV unfortunately].

Suk Hyun-Jun will either start or be benched this week against Estoril Praia. [No US TV…creative streaming options perhaps? Wink wink, nod nod…]

Kim Jin-Su is a regular starter, I expect him to start this week against Bayern Munich. This will be a tough game for him, good luck to Kim. [US TV: Fox Soccer Plus]
