Week listings and previews for our Korean Players Abroad. Mediocre week for our Korean Players Abroad as some players are struggling to get playing time while others are struggling with their clubs on fighting league relegation. That aside, some great matches are on this week. Tottenham Hotspur’s vs Arsenal (North London Derby), Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich (Der Klassiker) and Augsburg vs Bayer Leverkusen.
North London Derby is on this week! As Son Heung-Min was benched mid-week against West Ham, I expect he either start or make reserves against Arsenal. Both teams will be giving it their all as this game depends on the 2nd place league race. Hopefully Son can score in this game, if he scores in this game he will become a club favourite and will definitely get more notice. Good luck to Spur’s this Saturday.
Looks like Hong Jeong-Ho is still out with injury. He has been facing a lot of injury woes these last 2 years. Hong Jeong-Ho made bench against the Hoffenheim game mid-week but only time will tell. I expect he will make bench again this week.
Koo Ja-Cheol is a regular starter, I expect him to start this week against Bayer Leverkusen. Important game for Augsburg this week as they are on the brink of a relegation battle.
I expect Ji Dong-Won to be benched this week against Bayer Leverkusen.
Kim Jin-Su is still struggling on making the squad list, I expect it will be same this week too.
Ki Sung-Yueng is a vital player for Swansea, I expect him to start against Norwich City.
Like Kim Jin-Su, Park Joo-Ho has also been struggling on making the squad list these last couple of weeks too. I expect it will be same for him this week as it is Der Klassiker.
Suk Hyun-Jun should either start or be benched against Braga this week.
I expect Lee Chung-Yong to be benched this week and to be subbed on later in the game. Hopefully he impressed during that short time.
