Koo Ja-Cheol and Park Joo-Ho will be facing Hannover this week. Park Joo-Ho has been linked with Borussia Dortmund these couples of days. Park Joo-Ho’s former Mainz coach and current Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel wants to add Park Joo-Ho to his squad as Dortmund has been struggling with past injuries and wants to rotate the players in the left back position around. Apparently Park worked well under Tuchel’s tactics and Dortmund are in need for a well-rounded full back. I expect Park to start this week if he is on the squad, he was great against Borussia Monchengladbach last week. Koo Ja-Cheol was subbed on for a minute last week I expect another bench appearance for him.
Ji Dong-Won and Hong Jeong-Ho will be up against newly promoted Bundesliga team Ingolstadt this week. Hong Jeong-Ho has been great these last couple of weeks, he is undoubtedly one of Augsburg’s best players right now. I expect Hong to start this week and a bench appearance for Ji Dong-Won.
Kim Jin-Su was up against Bayern Munich last week, he struggled a lot as expected. He had the task of marking Robben. Kim and Hoffenheim will be facing newly promoted Darmstadt this week. Hopefully they can finally collect some points. I expect Kim to start.
Lee Chung-Yong was an unused sub against Aston Villa last week. But he started against Shrewsbury Town in the Capital One Cup and scored an awesome goal. I expect a bench appearance for him this week.
Yun Suk-Young is back to practice but he is not fit enough to make an appearance.
Welcome back to the Korean National team Suk Hyun-Jun. He’s back. Suk Hyun-Jun scored two goals and provided an assist against Academica last week. His first goal is a serious contender for Primeria Liga’s goal of the season. I expect he will start this week.
Son Heung-Min and Ryu Seung-Woo take on Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich. I don’t know what’s happening to Son right now. Rumours say he is waiting for a medical at Tottenham Hotspurs and hasn’t been training with Bayer Leverkusen. I don’t expect he will start. I expect a bench appearance for Ryu Seung-Woo.
Ki Sung-Yueng is fit again. He didn’t make an appearance against Sunderland last week but he started in the Capital One Cup against York City and provided an assist. I expect he will start against Manchester United. Hopefully he can score another goal against them. 🙂
