K-League Classic – only one match:
Wednesday, September 24

FC Seoul is on the razor’s edge of the split table (top half separated from bottom half with 3 matches to go), 1 point separating while Gyeongnam is 2 points from the bottom -currently Busan holding that distinction.

Asian Games Women’s QuartefinalsKorea vs Taiwan on FRIDAY Sept 26 at 8pm Korea time / 7am EST at Munhak Stadium
> High impact player for Chelsea, Ji So-Yun will join the team -already having flown in straight from London.
This post coming Tuesday afternoon- we know that Koo Ja-Cheol was still out & recovering from injury, Ki Sung-Yeung rested for Swansea, Kim Bo-Kyung with a very short 37 minutes for Cardiff (losing 0-3 at that point) and Park Joo-Ho and Kim Jin-Su not in uniform as they are on Asian Games duty.
Wednesday morning after catching FC Seoul v Gyeongnam, exciting fixtures: Ji Dong-Won may (emphasis on may) be making his Bundesliga debut in a Borussia Dortmund uniform. With many many injuries to BVB in this early season, Klopp may have to give Ji the nod sooner than expected. Ji has been recovering from his own injury earlier this season.
There’s also Leverkusen v Augsburg – quite possible we may see Hong Jeong-Ho try to stop Son Heung-Min from scoring.
