Son Heung-Min has been a vital player for the Spurs these days, he should start against Bournemouth. (More goals please Sonny)

Lee Chung-Yong hasn’t been getting playing time these last couple of games. He should make bench again.

New manager for Ki Sung-Yueng’s Swansea but I expect him to be benched. Hopefully he starts again.

With Augsburg striker Caiuby out for the rest of 2016, Ji Dong-Won has been starting almost every week. He should start against Freiburg this week too.

As usual Koo Ja-Cheol should start for Augsburg too.

Borussia Dortmund’s first choice left back Marcel Schmelzer is out with a minor injury. Park Joo-Ho will finally get some playing time after weeks of not even being included in the squad list. I expect him to make bench against Ingolstadt, I hope he impresses when subbed on.

Kim Jin-Su hasn’t starting any league games and made no bench appearances this season. I expect it to be the same this week too.

Suk Hyun-Jun should start against Trabzonspor. His team has been very poor this season, another tough game for them this week against Galatasary.
