Ji Dong Won -- With Cordova coming back, we'll see how Baum lines up his 33 (!) players. So many players and so few spots means its unclear if Ji even makes the matchday squad. Hoping he makes the bench but wouldn't be surprised if he was left out.

Koo Ja Cheol -- Unlike Ji, Koo is more important and also plays a relatively less thin position. It's been 50/50 between him and Khedira but I think Baum will go for offense and Koo tomorrow.

Lee Chung Yong -- Still out injured.

Ki Sung Yueng -- Things are getting kinda desperate for Clement. I think Ki starts but its unclear in what role and certainly Clement could get crazy and put Ki on the bench.

Son Heung Min -- A super goal to ensure that Tottenham wins the group and again, Son destroys Dortmund. While he wasn't great prior to the goal, Son was a consistent offensive threat stretching out the Dortmund defense. Normally, with a match midweek, I'd expect Son to be on bench but maybe Poch wants to get momentum going after a sad showing at Arsenal and beginning vs. Dortmund.

Lee Seung Woo -- As an FYI, the Italian 23 man squad is ridiculous. With cup match midweek, I don't expect LSW to start. Maybe an outside chance of garbage time but with Kean back, maybe not even that.

Kwon Chang Hoon -- Has to start. Obvious quality even if he's not as assertive as one would hope a player of his caliber to be.

Suk Hyun Jun -- Forwards who score generally keep starting so I'd expect him to start.
