Week listings and previews for our Korean Players Abroad. Our Korean footballers abroad had an average performance mid-week. This week’s match to watch is Augsburg vs Hoffenheim, biggest Korean derby of the season. If the four players, Hong Jeong-Ho, Ji Dong-Won, Koo Ja-Cheol and Kim Jin-Su all feature together, they will make Bundesliga history by having four South Korean players on the same field.

Yun Suk-Young is still not hundred percent fit yet but he is getting there. I don’t think he will even make a bench appearance this week.
Son Heung-Min should start. He had a great performance last week and even scored a goal against Crystal Palace. This week will be a tough week for him, he will be facing EPL giants Manchester City.
I expect a bench appearance for Ryu Seung-Woo this week.
Hong Jeong-Ho has returned from his injury he should start.
I expect Koo Ja-Cheol to start too.
Ji Dong-Won has been getting better and better although I expect a bench appearance for him this week.
Kim Jin-Su didn’t feature in the mid-week game against Borussia Dortmund I think he was rested. He should start against Augsburg. Can’t wait for the Korean derby.
Ki Sung-Yueng should start against Southampton. He’s being having a tough couple of weeks, with him returning for international duty and having a new baby.
Suk Hyun-Jun will be facing his former club Nacional this week. He is in top form, he should start.
I expect a bench appearance for Lee Chung-Yong this week.
Park Joo-Ho didn’t fly with Borussia Dortmund for the Hoffenheim game. I expect him either to start or be benched for the game against recently promoted Darmstadt.
