I don’t expect Ryu Seung-Woo will be making the squad list this week. Poor Ryu, I hope he makes good use of his time during International Week with the Olympic team.
Kim Jin-Su started last week, he should start this week against Frankfurt.
Yun Suk-Young is back from his injury, he has been gaining some playing time with the U21 team. He should make squad list this week.
Ki Sung-Yueng should start against Norwich City.
Park Joo-Ho has been lacking confidence when playing for Borussia Dortmund. I expect a bench appearance for him this week.
Lee Chung-Yong suffered a minor knock when playing with the U21 team this week, I expect a bench appearance against Liverpool this week.
Son Heung-Min returns from his injury, and was subbed on playing against Anderlecht in the Europa League. Son Heung-Min also provided an assist to Mousa Dembele’s winning goal.
Hong Jeong-Ho sustained an injury against Mainz last week, he will be out until the winter break.
Koo Ja-Cheol should start against Werder Bremen this week.
Ji Dong-Won scores again, this time it’s in the Europa League. Augsburg won 4-1 against Az Alkmaar. I expect he will start this week against Werder Bremen.
Tavern Owner interupting: Hwang Hee-Chan Red Bull Salzburg/on loan to Liefering is lighting it up in Austria, just scored a goal this afternoon (I’m writing as of Friday afternoon Nov 6) – but this video, from Tuesday, shows Hwang with some impressive skills and clinical finishing. His brace was enough to win it for Liefering 2-1 – check it out:
