Week listings and previews for our Korean Players Abroad. Europa League was on this week, Son Heung-Min and Tottenham Hotspur’s are officially knocked out. They lost 1-2 or 1-5 on aggregate to Borussia Dortmund. Borussia Dortmund killer Son Heung-Min was the only player to have scored for the Spurs in two legs. Congratulations to Park Joo-Ho and Borussia Dortmund as they qualify for the quarter finals facing their former coach Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool. Park Joo-Ho is the only one Korean left in the Europa League now. Some interesting fixtures are on this week, the most exciting match this weekend has to be FC Porto vs Vitoria Setubal or Augsburg vs Borussia Dortmund. Suk Hyun-Jun will be facing his former club and Korean derby for Hong, Koo, Ji and Park. What match will you be watching this weekend?

Sunday 12:30PM Park Joo-Ho Borussia Dortmund Augsburg

Kim Jin-Su and Hoffenheim will be facing Hamburg this weekend I expect Kim Jin-Su to make bench at least.

Lee Chung-Yong should make reserves against table leaders Leicester City this week. This should be quite a tough game for Crystal Palace and Lee. I expect Lee to get subbed on later in this game.

Ki Sung-Yueng should start for Swansea City against Aston Villa, time to recover some points.

Match of the week: Suk Hyun-Jun faces his former club Vitoria Setubal. I expect Suk Hyun-Jun to start against Vitoria Setubal as he knows this club inside and out. Hopefully he scores this week too.

Yay! Son Heung-Min finally scores. I expect him to be on the bench this week against AFC Bournemouth as he played mid-week.

Ji Dong-Won has be excluded from the squad list these last couple of weeks. I hope he makes at least bench this week against former club Borussia Dortmund.

Hong Jeong-Ho being a vital player for Augsburg, he should start this week against Borussia Dortmund. It will be a very tough game for Hong as he has to keep an eye on speedy Aubameyang and Reus.

Koo Ja-Cheol should also start against Borussia Dortmund.

Park Joo-Ho has been excluded from the squad list these last couple of weeks, I expect the same for him this week too.
