Midweek Schedule and Recap - Oct 21

Championship and Champions League make up midweek fixtures.


Lee Chung Yong and Bolton go to Charlton Athletic.  Obviously so many matches between KNT and club duty put him at risk but he also was reportedly one of the best on the weekend given a central role by new manager Lennon.  He should start.  Tuesday 1:45 PM ET with no TV.

Kim Bo Kyung and Cardiff host Ipswich Town.  Kimbo didn't make the squad last weekend and I doubt a change for Tuesday.  Tuesday 1:45 PM ET with no TV.


Son Heung Min and Leverkusen host FC Zenit.  Son was the star of the first half, scoring two goals and just hitting off the bar what would have been the fastest hat trick in Bundesliga history.  He also had an assist though the goal was 99% Bellarabi.  Whether it was fatigue from international duty or Leverkusen stalling out, they struggled to keep the momentum going and ended up with only a draw.  Son unfortunately had a hand in giving up the final goal, giving up a foul and mis-marking his man.  Despite this, Leverkusen need his explosiveness and he should start again Wednesday.  1:45 PM ET on ESPN3 / DirecTV.
